What's on my Vanity with @vanessa.andrea.beauty
This week we caught up with the lovely Vanessa from @vanessa.andrea.beauty. We talk about some of her go-to skincare products, how she got started on Instagram, and she shares what items she keeps on her Geometric Vanity Tray.
Hi, thanks for joining us! When did you start your Instagram and how did it come about?
Unlike other influencers, I didn't really take my skincare game all that seriously until mid 2019. I was that girl that would go to bed with her makeup still on and use the bar of soap in the shower as my skincare... shameful, I know! Luckily I've been blessed with good genes and my skin is pretty darn good for a 40 year old mom of two!
I started off as a makeup page doing daily makeup looks and came to the realization that if maybe if I invested in skincare it would make way for the perfect "canvas" for all my artistic creations. For a little while I had the saying in my bio "to create a masterpiece, you need the perfect canvas" meaning to create gorgeous makeup looks you need clear and healthy skin!
After investing a bunch of money in a complete skincare routine I never looked back. Over night skincare became a passion of mine and I realized just how important it was to care for your skin as it was for the rest of your body. I was eating well, I was working out and yet I was treating my face like an amusement park!
My page complete transformed within a matter of weeks into a source where people could come to get valuable information on brands and products before making the commitment to purchase. I've built a solid reputation in the community with individuals and with brands and I am recognized as a trustworthy and credible source for all that is beauty. A true labor of love that I am proud of.
What’s your full time job? How do you juggle your time between creating content for your Instagram and your full time job?
I'm a stay at home mom who is doing remote learning with both my 5 and 11 year old boys all while juggling my Instagram business.
What are 3 items on your Geometric Vanity Tray?
There's a lot more than 3 items but definitely some of my holy grail products including my Chanel texture riche hand cream, my Burberry Blush perfume and my Farsali Rose Gold Mist.
What are your top 3 makeup products?
Top 3 makeup products would be my Fenty Gloss Bombs, my Tarte Cosmetics palette and my Tatcha Silk Canvas Primer.
And your top 3 skincare products?
Top 3 skincare, Filorga Mask & Scrub, Voltion Beauty Celery Green Cream and my Tatcha Violet C Serum.
Lastly, could you share a makeup or skincare tip that you swear by?
Skincare tip, always double cleanse your skin before bed!
