Chit Chat with Vanessa Calero

If you’re searching for beauty tips, Vanessa Calero’s YouTube channel is worth checking out. Known for her GRWM videos, short for “Getting Ready with Me,” Vanessa never fails to inspire her audience with makeup ideas. Vanessa is an Ecuadorian influencer based in Canada so you might want to brush up on your Spanish (or get a translator) before watching her videos.

Vanessa’s content mostly revolves around Asian and Western beauty, and she’s a sucker for cute packaging. Some of her favorite K-Beauty products include cushion foundations, glitter eyeshadows and lip tints.

Get to know more about her go-to makeup look, beauty resolutions, and how she’s grown over the years from being a part of the YouTube community.

What is your go-to makeup style?

I absolutely love soft, natural makeup. I always go for cushion foundation (glow formulas are my favorite ones).  If I had to describe my go-to makeup in 4 steps, they would be:

  1. Natural and radiant skin.
  2. Peach blush.
  3. Peach or soft pink shadows with a little bit of glitter on my eyes.
  4. Soft, velvety lips. I am really into lip tint these days, especially ones with a velvety formula.

You’ve been on YouTube for more than six years now. How do you feel about your growth as a content creator?

These last six years have been the most fun of my life! I have been able to meet wonderful people. I feel very grateful to my subscribers because they have been with me through all these years and allowed me to be part of their daily routines.  I hope to be here for more years to come!

What are your current favorite K-beauty products?

Attention, people! I will give you my K-beauty list. One of my favorite K-beauty brands is 3CE. They have three of my favorites products: the Velvet Lip Tint in #NewNude and #NearandDear, Mood Recipe 2 Matte Lip in #220HitMeUP, and Mood Recipe Face Blush in #RoseBeige. I also love the Sugar Twinkle Liquid Shadow and Mirror Holic Liquid Eyes from Peripera and Etude House. I review all of them on my YouTube channel: 3CE | Etude House | Peripera

What are you looking forward to this new year?

I hope to finish my master’s degree in Computer Science and be able to manage my channel at the same time. I would love to have the opportunity to travel to Korea and be able to collaborate with a Korean brand.

Are you following any beauty resolutions in 2019?

My only beauty resolution is to take care of my skin from the inside out by drinking more water and taking vitamins!
