Anne is a 30-something stay-at-home wife and fur-mommy who is obsessed with beauty, fashion, books and travels. Oh and dogs too!
Anne considers herself a late-bloomer in skincare. She only started exploring this part of the market last 2015, when she got engaged. She had barely over a year before her wedding to bring back her skin’s lost glory. Having worked at a Bank for a decade, corporate stress took its toll on her skin. That was when her obsession with skincare began and everything else was history. Alongside her skincare quest was her new-found love for makeup and all thanks to binge-watching tutorials from YouTube, she mustered the courage and became her own makeup-artist on the day of her wedding.
Birth of the Blog
Anne graduated with Latin honors from Far Eastern University where she took up Bachelor of Arts in Literature. She has always been passionate about expressing herself through her writing and put up blogs of every niche for several years. However, she went on a long hiatus when her office work demanded majority of her time and energy.
One morning on March 2019, her love for writing rekindled alongside her skincare journey and finally began an Instagram Microblog under the handle @skincarelassie, solely dedicated to skincare reviews. She knew right there and then that it was what she has always wanted to do. When she retired from the corporate world and concentrated on her IG blog, she found herself wanting a broader spectrum where she can encourage more people to start looking after their skin. Thus, Make That Glow was born.
Make That Glow would not have been possible if not for the author’s bouncing baby brother, Ronald Cruz, the brains and backbone of the blog XD
Still bugging him for more “public” details and pictures. Will update this section when applicable 😀
To uphold the author’s lust for style, knowledge, beauty and tourism.
