"People say it’s anti-feminist because you’re doing it to look a certain way to other people. But I’m doing that for myself."

I think we can all admit that the first winter season of Love Island wasn’t the best one. It took a bit of getting used to, as the season felt slightly different from the original summer series, people were also wary of having two seasons per year, thinking it may have been too much, then came the tragic passing of presenter Caroline Flack. But one thing we can say about the season, is that by the end, we all loved the contestants. Shaughna, will forever be remembered for her ‘Congrats, hun’ comment, and hands down she was one of everyone’s favourites.

While Shaughna’s never made a secret of the fact that she’s had a bit of work done, she’s now opened up to Grazia about the reason behind it, and what she’ll be getting done in the future, post-lockdown.

“I’ve been having my lips done for a good few years now, so it will take more than a few months of lockdown to get those to deflate. The longer I leave [filler] the better it looks, but now there is a bit of an itch and I can’t wait to get back out and do it, treat myself and make myself feel a bit better. I won’t do anything excessive, I won’t do anything that I wouldn’t normally have done.”

“I got this other treatment called Profilo, which is injections under your skin. It basically makes you look glowy and like you’ve had a really good night’s sleep. It was amazing. I had it done once before I flew to South Africa. So I think that and my lips are the things I’ll have done straight away. Botox, I got done because I was going to be on telly. It wasn’t something I felt I really needed so I’m not in a rush to do it again.”

Shaughna continued to say that she’s well aware of the rise of the ‘Love Island Face’, but her advice to anyone who’s considering getting cosmetic treatments, is to do their research. “At the end of the day it’s your face, not Molly-Mae’s face that might go tits up. What might look good for her might not look good for you,” she says. Shaughna then added, “I don’t like it when people say girls are insecure if they’ve had it done, it’s a personal thing – if it makes you feel better what’s wrong with that? Any fillers I get done are so I can wear less make-up. You can just get up and your face looks pretty.”

When it comes to other people’s opinions, Shaughna makes it clear that she does this for herself and no one else. “People say it’s anti-feminist because you’re doing it to look a certain way to other people. But I’m doing that for myself.” Before adding that, “People say you’re doing it to look a certain way to other people. But I have not got £200 every couple of months to please other people. I’m doing that for myself. Of course we care, and everyone wants to be liked. But if I get comments on my Instagram telling me that my lips are too big I just think tell someone who cares, I get lip filler to make my lips massive.”
