I’m Vashti!

I am usually not wearing pants [mostly just at home], drinking coffee & sweet tea, obsessively cleaning my house, figuring out dinner for 3, running at the gym, trying to cut carbs, and overthinking ever single aspect of my life.

Natural Everyday Go-To Makeup

heyy there beautiful people!

I had this blog post prepped and ready to go before I decided to take a much needed break.

I will be the first to tell you that I will go without makeup any day of the week especially with allergy season blaring its ugly head right now.

On the days that I have to show my face in public I try to do a little and make it go a long way.

I am a firm believer in the power of a good mascara and a good coverage BB cream, my go-to for a while now has been Its Cosmetics in the shade deep. The brand has really good coverage and the formula they have seems to blend into my different skin shades naturally.

Then when I started becoming more conscious of my dark circles [aka mom life] I started using an under eye concealer, I save contouring, baking and all that jazz for special date nights and when I am playing in my makeup alone in my room.

The other things I apply besides mascara, is maybe a lipstick on occasion, I am a matte lover so I gravitate to matte shades as much as possible. I have wayyy too many nude shades but I am okay with that.

A couple of my favorite lipsticks is Milani’s Matte Beauty, Matte Naked. I have also fallen in love with Dose of Colors because they last so long without having to constantly reapply.

A couple years ago I picked up a Tarte shade called 5’o clock and seriously still love it.

Step 1: Clean up brows, if necessary.
Step 2: Apply BB Cream of choice my go-to is Its Cosmetics [deep]
Step 3: Mascara — currently loving Loreal Telescopic Mascara in Black
Step 4: Apply a chick-y shade of blush — Milani is one of my favorites drug store brands.
Step 5: Matte Nude lip of choice — if you are a glossy girl use that [not my jam]
Step 6: Lastly take a selfie for in case you need it for the gram.

And that is it! Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy — don’t judge me.
