I started actively blogging recently and have gotten to more than 140 followers on my blog in a little less than three weeks.  As an appreciation of this, I am offering a makeup giveaway (see below for all the products given). Retail value is $100 dollars for the makeup, and I will ship to you for free.


Shara Strand, one of NYC’s most distinguished makeup artists, has over twelve years of experience. Working with her exclusive clients and celebrities alike, Shara understands that women want to look effortlessly chic, gorgeous, and natural.

Starting her company six years ago on the upper east side of Manhattan, Shara is very excited to open SHARA Makeup Studio at the Pierre Hotel’s Salon Dominique. Her product line will be sold exclusively at The Pierre and online.

 Here is your chance to get top quality makeup and brushes at a much lower cost than found in Sephora or department stores all across the world. The makeup lines Shara has worked with and developed includes only the best and most natural products on the market. They are mineral based and never tested on animals. Nothing will clog your pores or make you breakout.

SHARA Makeup Studio is very excited for their giveaway on The Mommyhood Chronicles. Shara’s sister Melissa has fallen in LOVE with the products and brushes and can’t wait to giveaway a great set of makeup for the fall!

Order above $45 on http://www.makeupbyshara.com/ (from now until the giveaway ends) and you will receive a gorgeous new Mineral Shadow Gem, perfect for every compexion, for those exciting nights out!

Included in the winning package is:

1) Lipstick in Hush- Shara’s best selling lipstick.  Hush is a perfect peach/pink and is wearable day and night.  It is very flattering and great on every skin tone.

2) Lipliner in Mochaberry- Shara’s best selling lipliner.  Neutral pink color great with almost every lipstick.

3) Lip Polish in #2- Great Lip Polish to dress up a lipstick, or to be worn alone.

4) Porcelain Setting Powder- Translucent setting powder, great to set makeup and blot out oil. 

5)Shadow in Starlight brown- Perfect gold/brown eyeshadow to wear on those special nights. The color is simply stunning and pops out eye color with a very little amount.
