An English Rose

Firstly apologies for the crap picture, managed to snap a few with the decent camera but then it ran out of battery! This make up look was inspired by the gorgeous Kelly who recently did a blog post on her love of pale skin and bright blush. I also LOVE this look and convieniently I am always whiter than white! I do tan in the summer but what with the english weather and my phobia of wrinkles, tanning is not something I do often. When I was cleaning my room yesterday I found a product I'd thought was lost for good... 

The Body Shop's Lip and Cheek Stain in Rose Pink
I picked it up free with a magazine but at only £10 I will most definitely be repurchasing. I much prefer it to Benefits Benetint, which I've tried a few times. 
It gives a lovely pink flush and lasts all day long, even on the lips. 

I kept the eyes simple, I wanted my cheeks and lips to stand out. I just used a matte brown eyeshadow to subtly line my eyes, then lots of mascara. This look makes me feel very pretty ... with emphasis on the 'feel'. I'm not saying I look amazing, but it makes me feel elegant and understated. Its also minimal upkeep so perfect for a long day at work or college.


What I'm Wearing:
MUFE HD Foundation
Mac Studio Finish Concealer
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Tint
Rimmel Mono E/S in Cocoa
Eyeko Magic Mascara


Will you be embracing your winter skin?

Looking very Kate Winslet-esque....a total English Rose!!

I like days where I feel confident enough to just whack on some mascara and a bit of brown eyeliner; I know exactly what you mean about "feeling pretty"...all fresh-faced and innocent!

Great post
