Vashti Simone | Owner & Founder of Vashti Simone Cosmetics.

Growing up, I had really bad acne. I was always looking for ways to cover my acne scars. Once I came across makeup my life changed forever. I was so amazed at how makeup could literally change your whole appearance while also covering any imperfections on your face. Not only did makeup become a confidence booster for me, but it also became an outlet for me to truly express myself and be who I wanted to be in that moment. Makeup became my therapy while also making me feel beautiful. When starting my brand Vashti Simone Cosmetics, that was my goal. I wanted to create a makeup brand for women to feel free of any imperfections, to express themselves, and to be whoever they would like to be when wearing Vashti Simone Cosmetics.
