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.

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.

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.

When I first heard of cleansing oil – I thought it was the most ridiculous thing ever. I get oily fast and blotting sheets are like my best friends, so the idea of putting even more oil on my face was way out of the question. I always thought it would clog my pores even more and lead to a crazy amount of breakouts. Lately though, actually make that a few months now, I’ve been using a cleansing oil to take off my make-up before cleansing again with my normal cleanser and I have found it to be one of the best inventions ever. It is definitely something not to be intimidated by and I see now that it can help your skin in the long run.
