The 25-year-old single mother, who lives in her home country of the Philippines with her young son Prince, had a notoriously tumultuous relationship with her American boyfriend, Big Ed Brown.
Big Ed’s harsh treatment of Rose, and his negative comments about aspects of her appearance and background, led many 90 Day Fiancé fans to run to her defense. When Rose broke up with Big Ed due to his frequent put-downs, the 90 Day Fiancé fans collectively cheered her on.
Since then, Rose has taken to social media to share motivational messages on building her self-confidence and improving her self-esteem. Most recently, she teamed up with a beauty brand on YouTube to share a message about the importance of self-care, and fans couldn’t get enough of her physical and emotional transformation.
In a new YouTube video, Rose revealed that she was partnering with Bianca Festejo Hub. She described the brand as a “one-stop-shop for all your beauty and personal care needs,” including products for “skin, nails, eyelashes, permanent makeup, and scar and stretch mark revision.”
Looking back at her history, Rose explained that she had often neglected herself, especially after becoming a mother. When the 25-year-old was dating Big Ed, her self-esteem and confidence often suffered, but the problem started long before Rose appeared on 90 Day Fiancé.
She explained that she spent hours caring for her elderly father, as well as helping her sister run her business and helping care for her nieces and nephews. Her many caregiving duties, as well as time-consuming household chores such as cooking, cleaning, and laundry, left the young mother drained and exhausted.
At some point, Rose looked at herself in the mirror and realized that she no longer recognized herself. The stress had taken its toll on him and he didn’t like what he saw.
It was in part Rose’s confidence and sense of self-worth, which she showed in part by standing up to Big Ed when he treated her badly, that prompted Festejo to seek her out for a brand association.
With the help of the Festejo mime team and photographer Roj Miguel, Rose said it was time to “unleash Rosemarie Vega 2.0 .”Her makeover included hydrating facial, face-framing highlights, and smoothing and shine enhancement treatment for the damaged parts of Rose’s hair. The 90 Day Fiancé star also underwent treatments to decrease the discoloration of her stretch marks after giving birth.
