My name is Aileen and I am the Editor and Founder of The Shades Of U Beauty Blog. The Shades Of U was born on January 3, 2007 as a result of my desire to chronicle my experiences and thoughts on beauty products.
I was born and raised in Quezon City, Metro Manila, The Philippines. I am a licensed attorney in the Philippines, but I am now living with my husband and little boy in Arizona, USA, and have lived in the United States for 12 years.
I currently work in the legal industry, which is very stressful. I de-stress by working on my blog. Blogging allows me to combine two things that I love most, beauty and writing. I get to tap the right side of my brain and let my creative juices flow when I create makeup and nail looks for my blog. I love to review different products, and I have branched out to YouTube where I have my own beauty channel. My blog also has a Facebook page, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest accounts.
The Shades Of U has been around for 8 years, and I spend most of my spare time blogging and writing reviews, as well as creating makeup and nail polish looks for my readers and viewers.
