Welcome to BOmagz‘s first edition of “What’s Inside My Bag” with beauty vlogger and blogger Marsha Karta Swadharma. The videoshoot took place at Awan Lounge and Waha Kitchen, Marsha is known better Marsha BlushOff, a beauty vlogger and blogger from Jakarta and she is the owner of the self-titled blog BlushOff and YouTube channel BlushOffBlog.
Since she was little, Marsha loves following her passion. She was into dancing when she was young, and as years passed, Marsha found her other passion in blogging. As is her enthusiasm towards anything related with makeup world, and just like a match made in heaven, Marsha combined her two main hobbies into something refreshing.
“At the I thought to myself why not share my makeup tips to other people? So I came up with the ‘Blush Off’ name back then, and it has been five years since I first started.”
Five years and still going strong, and even expands to Instagram and vlogging. She admit that due to her hectic schedule, it’s hard to manage her time, juggling between making a video content, videoshooting, editing a video, and photoshoot.
She then joked, “Honestly, I suck at managing my schedule. If I’m not reminded or I don’t put any reminder, I would forget my meetings. But lately, I’m starting to get the hang of it.”
Quite the dedication though as Marsha has been in this beauty vlogging for five years, but it’s a good time to be involved since today’s trend has significantly shifted to vlogging. Marsha shared that there’s a lot of upsides for being a beauty blogger and vlogger.
“From making new friends, being the first to know new makeup products, and of course the opportunities to do a collaboration with well-known makeup products. I once got invited to a vacation abroad by a makeup brand. But the thing I’m most thankful about is the chance to meet professional people from the makeup world.”
Her point of view of beauty vlogging is interesting. To Marsha, there’s a chemistry between a person and the makeup product, you can’t choose which makeup product that fits you best right away, it takes process. These experiments, in her opinion, are exciting as one discovers new things.
“For the skincare, it’s all about the basics. From choosing the best cleansing product to the treatments, oh and a moisturizer is a must! While for the makeup, it’s about knowing your signature lipstick color: pick the right color to brighten up the face. After you found one, you can explore further on the various shades for your eyes and face.” Marsha also shared her love for local makeup brands, she believes that the quality of makeup brand is on par with that of international ones.
