Hey Everyone!

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.

Contrary to what you might think, blush doesn’t just come in peaches and pinks and contour powder or bronzer isn’t just brown. Here’s my quick tip guide to picking the right colour for your blush, contour and highlight. First things first, you gotta know your undertone. An undertone is the underlying color of your skin color and is primarily cool or warm. To find this, simply flip over your arm and observe your veins. Are they green (blue x warm) or are they purple/blue (blue x cool)? If they are green, you’re warm and if they are blue, you’re cool. Also if you think silver jewellery suits you better, you’re cool and if gold jewellery suits you better, you have a warm undertone. Now that we’ve gotten that sorted, let’s start.

As you all know, I’m a huge make-up junkie and most of my collection were actually bought online. I would only buy make-up at the counter if I really can’t wait to get my hands on the products. This way I managed to save a lot of money because I’m sure you would know – make-up certainly doesn’t come cheap. Perhaps many of you don’t really know how to get started with buying make-up online or perhaps you don’t know if you should. Well, don’t let the common case of Hover Finger get to you! Here is a rundown on the pros and cons of buying make-up online vs. at the counter so you’ll be prepared.
