My Spiced Life Contributor: Shauna

I think that it's probably been about a year since I've had a contributor on the blog. I love contributors because not only does it lessen the load for me (I'm just being honest lol). It gives you guys the opportunity to meet other Beauty lovers and hopefully find a new product a try. 

Shauna is a PR professional. I have been actually been emailing with her since 2016. We finally met in 2017! She's a really cool girl who listens to my beauty rants and raves- Soooo I thought she would be a perfect August contributor!

She also has her own: Canadian Blog which you can also check out when you have the time. 

Here is the 411 on Shauna's beauty background and likes! 

Why did you want to contribute to Spiced Beauty?
It’s great to have a Canadian beauty platform geared toward women on colour. It can be hard to find swatches or reviews from a source we can really relate to. I also believe in the power of collaboration. When women come together, amazing things happen.

How did you get into beauty?
Very slowly. I didn’t start wearing a full face of makeup until about 4 years ago simply because I found it so intimidating and didn’t think I could “make it look good”. Then slowly I started experimenting one product at a time. First with mascara then eyeliner, then with foundation and blush and finally eye shadow. As with anything, practice (and patience) makes perfect!

Favourite Canadian Beauty Brand?

Liquid, pencil or gel eye liners?

Tips to get the perfect eyeliner?
For a straight neat line, short strokes are best

What is one beauty trick that you want to perfect?
Doing a winged eyeliner QUICKLY and PERFECTLY the first time. I still mess up lol

Lipsticks or Gloss?

My ideal mascara is ...
Super lengthening and waterproof with built in conditioners/nutrients to keep my lashes strong

My favourite make up remover ...
Right now, the Clinique Take the Day Away Cleansing Balm

My skin care routine ...
· remove makeup with wipe

· oil cleanse

· regular cleanser

· tone

· serum

· moisturizer

· eye cream (at night)

· masks at least twice a week

Curly or straight hair?

How many lip products do you have in your purse/makeup bag?
Too many. At any given time, at least 6 or 7 lipsticks and a few glosses. I feel more prepared should I need to slap on a lip for any occasion


  1. Great post! I second her on having too much lipstick in side my bag lol

    1. I can't help it! You have to be prepared! LOL
