Hey Everyone!

I thought I might get back to basics today and tell you about my everyday makeup routine. I’m that kind of person who likes to stick to one thing. Call me boring, but I like using the same bag, wear the same pair of shoes and in this case wear the same makeup products every day. And I guess that pretty much means that the products that I use everyday mean that I like them very much!

I actually bring down all my makeup from upstairs and do my makeup in front of the TV. I love the History Channel, especially Pawn Stars. Lol, I’m such a nerd. It’s mainly because the lighting is best in the hall, that’s why I usually film and take photos here! I first start with my base and to that I always use the Rachel K CC cream. In hot and humid weather in Singapore, I find foundations much too heavy for daily use. For big events and if I know that I need the coverage, I’ll use something else. But if not, I always use the Rachel K CC cream! I love it. The Rachel K CC Mineral Pressed Powder is also amazing and is my go to powder to set the CC cream. It has amazing coverage and texture.

Hey Everyone,

It’s that time of year again. It’s that time to whip out the folders, pens and put our thinking caps on for back to school. Although the morning bus won’t be driving by my house anytime soon (or ever), I thought I might do a great make-up look you can do for back to school! I asked you all on my facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/roseannetangrs) what make-up look you wanted me to do next and most of you raised your hands to a picture day and school look. I also have FOUR Maybelline Back To School Goodie Bags full of great make-up products (shown above) so at the end of this post, find out how you can win your very own!

Hey Everyone!

I know that in other parts of the world, you’re taking out your floaties and your ripped jean shorts but here in Australia, any safe cove with warm air has become my best friend. It’s winter in Australia, so I thought I might do a pretty look for fall/winter that is natural enough to wear for any occasion! To create the look, all you need is a set of neutral eye colors, a glowy peach blush and sandwash pink lips. The combination gives you a bit of color that’s not too overwhelming, but it’s best shown than explained so view the video tutorial right here:

Hey Everyone!

It’s no surprise how much I am in love with the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette – not because everyone else loves it or the fact that there are probable queues outside Sephora right now begging for it – but because genuinely, it’s pure awesome. To me, getting a single shadow from a store is a waste of money. I’ll probably never finish just one color and getting a palette for me is tons more worth the price. I know how ridiculously long over-due this review is, but if you’re thinking of getting the Naked 2 Palette – Girl, you gotta stop thinking, and start saving because I’m going to tell you straight off – it’s worth it.  Here’s my take on this daily baby and my everyday eye tutorial to boot. At the end, I’ll tell you whether you should be getting the Naked or Naked 2. Get the Naked 2.

Hey Everyone!

I don’t know if you remember, but I did a quick tip ultimate guide to eye-shadow in February (I know) with a few sketches I did at the office. I did one for liner as well so if you are ever befuzzled with what the difference is when your favorite beauty youtuber says lid line, water line and tight line, then here you go. Obviously for make-up gurus, this would be a lesson for a pre-schooler.

1. Lid Line

Where it is: Your lid line is your “top line” – where you usually put your liner. It starts from the tear duct to the end of your and often ends in a winged tip upwards in the direction of your eye-brow.

Hey Everyone!

I remember my first time applying eye-shadow. I had no idea what went where  nor did I have any knowledge of what the difference was between the outer v and the crease. Heck,  I didn’t even know what they were called. That night,  I went to Prom looking like the white ghost from Bel-Air.  If she even exists.

It all starts with the anatomy. I’m at work right now, whoops, and I decided I’d practice my drawing skills so I drew these drawings up above with my trusty Pilot pen.

The first thing is to get the anatomy right! It probably would be beneficial to identify the text with the label on the picture and flip back and forth if you’re a total make-up newbie!
