Hey Everyone!

hihi

Apologies for the lack of updates. I’ve been extremely busy with November! Especially with the launch of Bloom. Here’s are my current beauty favourites!

Biore Micellar Cleansing Water – Bioderma’s new competitor. This cleansing water is just like water but removes make-up just as well as their make-up wipes. I love the Biore make-up wipes, they are the best you can get in Singapore right now so I’m happy they made this amazing cleansing water. It’s easy to remove eyeshadow glitches without making your entire eye oily. Something you should for sure have on your vanity.

Can you believe it? It’s already October. I’m sure you agree with me that 2014 is flying by super fast and soon it will be my favourite season of the entire year – the holidays and of course Christmas! With the holidays comes the season of giving and that’s when a lot of our favourite makeup brands create really cool gift sets. I was invited to the Sephora Singapore Holiday Press Day to see what is in store this year! This is an event I never miss because each prominent brand in Sephora holds a booth on this day and they fly their international representatives over to talk about what they have to offer. Here’s what I loved best from the amazing selection!

I’m sure we all have our own list of favourite apps that we can’t live without. Being possibly addicted to technology, I know I have mine. For me, I’m always on the lookout for apps that make my life easier OR apps that connect me to the rest of the world. I’m not much of a gamer although on some nights, I just download a bunch if I need to de-stress! In fact, my tablet or phone is the first thing I reach for right before I sleep and right when I wake up! Here are my top five favourite apps that I love! I’ll be showcasing them on my new tablet – the Samsung GALAXY Tab S (10.5”) LTE- just because it’s bigger and a beauty. (Thank you Samsung Asia for sponsoring me this new tablet!)

Some may say that when it comes to make-up, there are no rules. I have to..half agree. Yes it’s great to be creative and have a blast, but if you don’t have a basic understanding of a few principles it can make it a little bit harder. Whether it be tools, technique or theory – there is a lot to be learned and when you’ve solidified a good foundation you can have even more fun! Here are five make-up tips that I believe everyone should know. They’re essential!

1. Follow your natural contours – your face is your BEST guide

When make-up artists come straight out of school, one thing I notice is that they always follow the template that they learned at school no matter what eye shape they’re working on. And that’s not a good at all. Similarly, you can’t believe that all shapes of faces were created equal. The best trick is to follow your natural contours. Take a moment and feel where your face shape is – where your eye pops out of the socket (that’s the crease) or where your cheeks sink in (that’s where you contour). Every face is different and to be honest when you’re doing make-up, the face is the best guide. For me, I use it as a map and when I do, I can basically enhance the features that are already there. It’s my make-up secret. I observe where the eye folds in and gradually add shadow to it and I observe where light hits the face and where shadow forms to create a look that suits the person I’m doing make-up on to a T.

Today I thought I might share with you how I take my pictures of make-up for instagram! If you haven’t followed me yet, you totally should @roseannetangrs :D Of course what you think are the best make-up pictures is totally subjective – but I do get a good amount of compliments and questions on how I take them which is why I thought I would do this post showing you how! I actually do put a lot of effort into my pictures even though it takes you two seconds for you to scroll through them and I have a series of tips and tricks on how I get my favourite make-up products camera ready.

Today I want to share with you my latest lotion obsession – the Vaseline Total Moisture! This is such an amazing product and I have loved slathering it all over myself day and night. Vaseline is easily the expert in healing dry skin. I’m sure we all know of the very famous petroleum jelly that has so many uses and their varied and effective range of lotions!

If you haven’t heard, the Vaseline Total Moisture is an amazing lotion that is known for their Stratys-3 Multi-Layer Moisture technology. Unlike other moisturisers that leave a greasy feeling, Stratys-3 is the first moisturising complex that infuses moisture at the top, core and deep down layers of the stratum corneum layer of your skin (your surface skin!) It penetrates these layers and by doing so, it effectively heals dry skin! Despite delivering superior moisture into these layers, this lotion still gives you a silky feeling that makes this moisturising technology one of the biggest breakthroughs in the last ten years. Vaseline Total Moisture comes in three variations – Aloe Fresh, Cocoa Glow and Nourishing (which is the one I love the most). It combines pure oat extract and the Stratys – 3 technology and smells absolutely amazing.
