Runway Beauty: Romantic Rose

The English Rose has remained a beauty phenomenon since the premiere of Titanic. It recalls enigmatic sepia photographs, and conjures images of picturesque country houses. It’s also a great transition look from summer to fall since it works in all seasons. Here is how to create the fresh, dreamy look in ten minutes or less.

Dewey Skin: Even out your skin tone with a generous amount of tinted moisturizer. Use a pearlescent highlighter across the cheekbones and any other plane of the face that catches light. Dust a bit of subtle rosy blush right below the highlighter. I recommend Neutrogena’s Healthy Skin Enhancer. It’s oil free and lightweight yet it still gives good coverage.

Enthralling Eyes: Brush a dusty rose-gold or taupe shadow all around the eyes. Add a little bit of the highlighter to the inner corners of the eye and finish with a coat of mascara on only the top lash-line. Urban Decay’s Naked Palette is great for everyday use and has an amazing pigmentation.

Lovely Lips: Rub lips with a new, clean toothbrush to remove dead skin and create fullness, and use a soft taupe-pink lip stain or gloss to create a natural tint. This Stila lip stain is without a doubt the perfect shade for this look.

Natural waves or loose ringlets with a braid coronet are great hairstyle options to accentuate the look. An undone fishtail braid or French twist would also work really well. Here are links to some exceptional tutorials for a fishtail braidcoronetcascade, and french twist. You will look naturally glowing and beautiful at any occasion!
