Beauty Blogger Spotlight Vol 6

It’s that time again where FilipinaMacBarbie Spotlights a Beauty Blogger! I’m so glad that I’ve started this series. I’ve been able to get to know the Beauties Behind the Blogs better and get to read and see all their articles in their corner of cyber space.

Shauna Sharp, 22

Blog name & URL

Shauna’s Beauty blog  http://www.shaunasharp.com

How did you come up with your blog name?

To be honest I really just wanted something simple and on point, I never expected to get any views or followers on my blog, So I just kept it with my name and beauty in it as that is what my blog is all about. If I had of known I would get views and followers maybe I would have picked a more unique name for my blog, but I’m glad I chose it now.

When did you start blogging & Why did you start?

I started blogging the 29th Of January 2014. To be honest I have wanted to do a blog for years but only had the courage to do it now. I suffer very badly with anxiety and always felt anxious about starting a blog. Until I stumbled upon Zoella’s (Zoe, Beauty blogger and Youtuber) blog post “Say Yes”. She talked about dealing with anxiety and that saying yes to things isn’t always a bad thing and to stop thinking “What If?”. Its better to try something than to never try it at all. So that’s when I decided its time I started doing something I knew I wanted to do for ages and to share it. Reading blogs and having such a passion for beauty I knew that this was the perfect way to express my love for the both and it was the best decision I made.

What is your favorite part of being a blogger?

I actually love the interaction you have with your followers and to see someone take a second to read or leave a comment on your blog post, honestly you don’t know how happy that makes me. I love the support all us bloggers give one another and its such an amazing community to be apart of.

What keeps you inspired to blog?

Reading other blogs and reading comments on my blog defiantly keeps me inspired to blog as it’s a great booster.

Do you have regular beauty blogs that you read?

Oh I have so many!! I mainly read all the beauty bloggers like Fleur De Force, Zoella, Beauty Unearthly, FashionDreams & lifestyle, Sam Schuerman, Kandee Johnson. I read so many blogs, I love coming across new bloggers as well and I enjoy reading their blogs and leaving them a nice comment, As I know how I felt when I first started blogging and started getting comments. It’s such a great feeling to know someone likes your blog and enjoys reading it.

What is your HOLY GRAIL beauty product and why?

The YSL Babydoll Mascara, This stuff is amazing!! super expensive but whenever I wear it I always get so many compliments and people think its fake lashes I am wearing. It really makes your lashes look longer and thicker. If I could only have one beauty product for the rest of my life it would be that haha!!

Is there a beauty product that you’ve tried and will never try again? Why?

The Cle De Peau concealer!!! I suffer with my under eye area and after trying so many different concealers I talked myself into buying the Cle De Peau concealer. First of all its so expensive, probably the most expensive beauty Item I have ever bought. You get so little product in it and honestly most drugstore concealers are better than it. Biggest waste of money!!

If you could go back in time to 5 years ago, what beauty tip would you give yourself?

To do my eyebrows!! I don’t know why but when I was younger, I never felt the need to do my brows. I have fair hair so looking back at old photos makes me cringe, as I look like I have no brows and brows really do shape your face and change your look.

What piece of advice would you give to new inspiring beauty bloggers?

Not to think that you are going to get hundreds of followers and readers over night!! so many people start blogging thinking they will have loads of views from one post. It really takes hard work but hard work pays off in the end. Also interact with other bloggers and followers so they can get to know you a bit more.

HSI Professional Liquid Gold for your Hair

The lovely beauties from HSI Professionals sent me this amazing Liquid Gold for my hair to test out.

Now everyone has heard of Argan Oil being “Liquid Gold.” I have been non-stop with Argan oil for my skin and for the past month I’ve been using HSI Professional Argan Oil for my hair.

Argan Oil for your hair

First off, this brands aroma is freaking amazing! I can’t pinpoint the scent and I couldn’t stop smelling my hair cause it’s just captivating. I was having my friends smell my hair so they can help me out try to figure it out but all they said was that it smells great. I even contacted the company so they would tell me the fragrance but they said that it’s their secret fragrance.

I seriously need to make some friends that are chemists so they can help me out. IT’S THAT GOOD!

Other than the scent, argan oil is great for ALL hair types, frizzy, straight, color-treated, fine, curly, damaged, you get the picture.

You can put it on towel dried hair, before you style, blow-dry, straighten or after your hair is fully dried and styled. Whatever your liking is.

It instantly adds shine to your strands without weighing it down. You dont need to add a lot, just a few drops into your hands, rub your hands together to warm it up then start combing it in with your hands and fingers.

With the leftover that’s on your hands you can just rub it into your nail cuticles, and you can also do what I do and cup your hands and bring it up to your nose and just smell the amazing aroma. It’s seriously that good.

I’m about to have to get another bottle because I’m almost out.

HSI Professional Hair Argan Oil

You see on the ingredients they list fragrance? Come on HSI Professional,  give in to me so I know what the secret fragrance is! Pretty Please!! IJS! I thought we was cool?

Get 50% off plus FREE shipping the 2 fl oz bottle with code:ARGANO50

Get 60% off plus FREE shipping the 4 fl oz bottle with code:ARGANO60

I just re-ordered the 4 fl oz bottle for only $14!!

 

To all my Beauties, this is the argan oil you need to get for your hair. Seriously! 

What are y’alls thoughts on the “Liquid Gold” Argan Oils?

shu uemura eyelash curler HOLY GRAIL or HOLY FAIL

shu uemura eyelash curler

THA HOLY GRAIL of eyelash curlers!

holy grail eyelash curler shu uemura

Yes, I’m SUPER LATE to trying this baby out.  I’ve been a very loyal MAC eyelash curler user. I’ve tried tons of different look-a-likes, but MAC was the one that did the job the best for me…UNTIL NOW!

I wish I knew of a way to add Jay Z’s song Holy Grail on here to where when you 1st landed on here it played.

I always read about this “Holy Grail” eyelash curler, but they don’t sell it locally here. I decided to treat myself and order it online at the shu uemura website for $20. It’s the same price as the MAC full lash curler and they look the same.

shu uemura eyelash curler review

I don’t know how and what the shu uemura creators did to pull off this amazingness but O, M, to the G! Seriously!

It grabs every lil tiny piece of my Filipino Islander straight eyelashes and curls them to perfection! It also holds the curls without having to heat it up with a blow dryer.

BTW, I’m testing out a new eyelash serum so I’ll be posting my review on that in a few weeks.

When i order from shu uemura, I also received a sample of their cleansing oil.

Back to the eyelash curler though, I instantly FELL IN LOVE! This is what it means when they say, “Love at 1st sight.” Once you see how your eyelashes look after curling them, you fall in LOVE!

It gets right down there to your lashline and curls away. It doesn’t snag or pull your lashes out.

I kinda feel bad for my MAC eyelash curlers now because they’re sitting inside one of my drawers not seeing the sunshine anymore.

The only downfall for me is that I will have to order from the website once it gets damaged or old since there’s nowhere local for me to get it, but I’ll be the lil impatient woman that I am and will continue to use this baby.

Just check out these curls.

shu uemura eyelash curler review

It just screams, “POW! LOOK AT ME!”

I’m not wearing any falsies or extensions,  but some regular mascara.

I am iN LOVE….♡♡♡♡

shu uemura eyelash curler review

Seriously,  if you want an eyelash curler that works wonders, GET THIS BABY!

I can’t say enough how much I’m loving this curler!

shu uemura, YOU DONE GOOD!

Have you tried the infamous shu uemura eyelash curler yet?  What are your thoughts on them?
