Hey Everyone!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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.

Hey Everyone,

Happy weekend. I’m still in my pj’s while typing this up and I wanted to let you know that I’m starting a new business. It’s been a long time coming and it seems that everything that I have as of now relates to it. That’s quite a major hint, haha but I want to be absolutely ready before I tell you what it’s all about. I guess with all things that take risks, starting something new isn’t always a bed of roses. Right now I’m going through the – “Will it work? Will people actually like it?” kind of phase and even the “Am I actually good enough?”.

Hey Everyone!

Here are some great tips I’ve tried myself that are super friendly to the wallets – they totally work too. Make-up after all can be super expensive so it’s good to have these under your belt before dishing out the extra dollars.

1. Get your Mascara Back with Hot Water

If you hate having clumpy mascara, just fill a cup with hot water and dip your mascara in. Make sure that the water level doesn’t reach the lid crack opening. Wait for probably 3 to 5 minutes and seriously, your mascara is as good as new. This is a great tip for any liquid product like lip glosses too.

2. Always Ask for Samples

hiiii

Whenever I make a purchase at the counter, I always ask for samples. This is a great way for you to try new products and also get more bang for your buck. I love getting mini perfume samples because that means I can always smell good on the go. They’re so small, they can fit into any wallet or purse.
