Beauty Blogger Tag: Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Me!Posted by in Lifestyle
I don’t even remember when was the last time I did one of these Q&A quizzes. But for a little bit of nostalgia, I thought why not? Thanks to the lovely Min Ru for tagging me for the Beauty Blogger Tag! There are actually 32 questions, but I chose 18 because the rest were a bit redundant to be honest. Let’s get started ;)
1. Do you wear the same style everyday or do you change it?
Yep, I’m one of those ultra classic ladies and if you’re talking about my daily make-up, then the only time I change it up is when I can’t find my make-up palette I usually use and end up using another one. Then I’m stuck on there for about 2 weeks before maybe thinking of changing it up again.
2. Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to a salon?
I love getting my nails done at the salon. It’s a horrible indulgence since it’s so expensive here. I do my own nails too though so it depends on my mood. If I’m feeling down, I’ll probably think of going to salon. It’s like going to McDonalds. These two things always make me happy.
3. How long does it take for you to put on your make-up?
Nowadays I’m putting a little more effort, aka my latest obsession, individual lashes. I used to take ten minutes, now its more like 2o minutes. I reckon the more I practice my individual lashes, the faster I’ll get though.
4. What do you do first? Face or eyes?
Always the face. It’s a distraction without my foundation on.
5. Do you “collect” make-up or just buy what you need when you need it?
I used to be (as you would probably know) a collector. I have so much MAC, I’m so happy that I’m a make-up artist now so I put it to good use and collected make-up like crazy when I was in college. Now I’ve slowed down a lot and only get something when I need it. Of course if it’s a really spectacular product, I don’t think twice!
6. How often do you wear false lashes?
Nowadays, everyday. Not strip lashes though, but for individual lashes. I love them so much and they look natural, flirty and lush. They take some time and patience but it’s really worth it.
7. Do you do a full face of make-up everyday?
I guess I could say yes to that. It depends if I’m leaving the house to town or to an event then of course.
8. Do you wear make-up when you are home alone or with family?
Nope, for sure not. If I’m staying home all day or just going around my neighborhood, I won’t be wearing my make-up!
9. Will you leave the house without make-up?
Yes! If it’s to my nearby mall, mrt station, grocery store, having breakfast with Mom and Dad.
10. How many high end products do you have?
Haha, I’ll be putting up my make-up collection soon so you can find out :D
11. How often do you change your handbag?
I almost never change my handbag. I wish I could be one of those girls that style themselves and change up their bags but I’m loyal to only one – the Longchamp Le Pliage. And girls, it’s my third consecutive one. I guess you can tell a lot about my personality from there. My Dad got me a back-up too so when this one breaks down, I’ll be on my fourth. That’s how I roll. I guess I’d like to but I am so lazy to take things out and put things in another bag. I love the Le Pliage – fits everything, looks classic. It’s just a great bag.
12. What time do you get up and go to sleep?
I used to be a 7 AM early bird and sleep early too. Nowadays because of work, I’m looking at 12 AM to 1 Am and waking up at 8 to 9 AM. I cannot stand being sleepy though. I go into this coma and all my friends know it. I can’t even see that properly. I just have to get my sleep and have never done an all nighter in my life.
13. How often do you work out?
Haha, well I swim occasionally. I used to work out like crazy though but I guess I go into fitness seasons. Truth be told, I don’t like working out. I’d rather do a sport or a team sport to get my heart beating again.
14. Do you speak a foreign language?
I speak Hokkien at home actually! Well a mix of hokkien (a dialect) and english although its not Taiwan or Singapore hokkien which is different from Penang Hokkien. My parents are from Penang in Malaysia so it’s a very mild sort of hokkien we speak. I do understand Mandarin but my tones are making me feel very embarrassed when I have to say something.
15. How did you come up with your blog name?
Well it was a mistake actually. When I was 16, I wanted to get a gmail account and something happened and I couldn’t create a firstname.lastname@example.org, so I added an RS at the end which signifies my initials for my Chinese name to the end and it became “roseannetangrs”. I was like, good enough.
16. What kind of camera do you use for photographs?
I have two cameras at the moment – the Nikon DSLR D5100 and the Canon S95 which I use for photos and video. I use the D5100 more but its so heavy if you know what I mean and hard to carry around to events. The S95 which I thought was a great camera is great for portraits but isn’t that clear as I’d like. I really want the Olympus EPL5 right now but its so pricey. I really have to save up for it.
17. What is your favourite color?
I love hot pink. The color of my logo! It’s such a vibrant but feminine personality that totally relates to me!
18. What are you doing with the rest of your day?
I have a Dior event at night but before that, an article to write and making sure my store is ready to launch its next collection on May 1st! I then really want to hop down to see my Olympus EPL5 again – pay it a visit you know. I’ll probably come see it everyday. Oh dear.
