Sigma: What was the inspiration for Cloud 10 Beauty? 

Cloud 10 Beauty:  While working in the beauty industry, our founder, Blanaid Johnson realized there was a large gap between the shopping experience available in-store and online for beauty products. She saw an opportunity to use technology to help bridge the gap and offer a better online shopping experience, as well as offer brands that were not easily available in Ireland. In October 2011, Ireland’s first social online beauty store, Cloud 10 Beauty was launched.

Sigma: What do you mean when you refer to yourself as a ‘social’ online beauty store? 

Cloud 10 Beauty: We are not your typical online beauty store. Our goal is to make each customer’s shopping experience a more social experience. We offer a live chat feature where customers can chat with our beauty experts. Customers can also interact with each other through product reviews, their profile pages, the Chat forum, the Blog and in Watch, which is our beauty channel where customers can watch the latest reviews and tutorials. We also have a very loyal following on social media which we continuously interact with.

Sigma: What sets you apart from other online beauty stores? 

Cloud 10 Beauty: We offer over 60 brands and almost 2,400 fabulous products. We also provide testers of products like foundation for customer to try before they buy and offer a Beauty Points scheme that allows customers to earn points for buying and reviewing products, signing up to receive our newsletter and for inviting friends to join.

Meet & Greet: MakeupByMandy 24

NL_3-25_Mandy_Meet&Greet_FBVisit the Sigma Beauty store at the Mall of America on Saturday, April 26 from 1-3pm for a special meet and greet with YouTube beauty expert MakeupByMandy24! Read on to find out a few things you might not have known about this glam guru plus all the event details. RSVP here!

With more than 1.2 MILLION subscribers, 14-year-old Amanda Steele has certainly made a name for herself through the vast assortment of videos on her YouTube channel, MakeupByMandy24, since her start in January 2010. Check out her channel and you’ll find an array of tutorials, product reviews and a host of beauty tips and tricks.

We caught up with Mandy to talk about her top product picks and the look she’s loving most for spring! Check it out:

1. How did you get your start on YouTube?

I started on YouTube when I was 10, which is so crazy to think of now! I watch my videos and can’t believe how young I was, but I asked my mom if I could do it and she said yes. I watched so many other YouTubers at the time and just thought it looked so cool and like so much fun! And now, four years later, I’m still doing it.

2. What is your favorite makeup look for spring?

I love a simple, natural look with just some liner on the top lid. You can make it a littler bolder with a dark lip or just keep it simple with some lip gloss.

3. Can you tell us a few things most people don’t know about you?

I love Oreos, actually most people probably know that. I’m actually really shy! I think people sometimes forget that I make all my videos by myself, in my bedroom.

4. What keeps you motivated to create videos on YouTube, inspire young girls and still be a normal 14-year-old?

My subscribers!! I have the best subscribers in the world and they inspire me so much. There’s nothing better than getting to meet them in person and learn who they are.

5. What are your three favorite Sigma products and why?

I love the Mrs. Bunny Essential Kit– I can’t live without them. They are such great, all-purpose brushes and are so soft and great for application. The lip glosses are great and the Sigmax Kabuki Kit is another must for me!

 

In addition to meeting Mandy at the Sigma store, guests can also look forward to desserts, a gift bag with purchase of $30 or more, and an entry to an exclusive in-store giveaway featuring Mandy’s three favorite products that were mentioned above! BONUS – there will be a 10% off store-wide discount during event hours. We can’t wait to see you there!
