Self-Care #STAYATHOME Virtual Getaway

Photography by Liam Heeley 


How do you spend the first thirty minutes of your day?
The first 15 minutes of my morning dedicated to cuddle with my pug, then I get up and wash my face and brush my teeth! I use Pixi Vitamin C Sheet Mask … and …. then I turn on music and jump in the shower.

What is your everyday skincare routine?
I start washing my face with Rose Cream Cleanser by Pixi , then I apply Vitamin-C Caviar Balm also by Pixi and complete it with a 50 SPF moisturizer! I let my skin absorb it then I apply some bb cream and I’m ready to go. I always carry rose mist water to refresh during the day. (Try Rose Glow Mist by Pixi)

What have you been doing to incorporate “self-care” into your time at home?
I have always practiced self-care in my life, but these days I have been able to eat healthier and exercise more! I’ve been discovering new passions such as playing guitar and…. cleaning ??. I am always in a pretty good mood thanks to my pug. As crazy as it sounds pets are the best therapy for self-care.

Where do you get your beauty products?
I purchase most of my beauty products online. Sephora is my to go-to store.

How often do you try new products?
I enjoy testing new products and I do it quite often. I used to stick to the same beauty routine until I realized I was missing on so many great products!

What qualities do you look for in skincare?
It’s very important for me that the products I use are cruelty free and paraben free. I always opt for hydrating formulas, fast absorbing and rich in vitamins.

What are three beauty products you cannot live without?
Dry shampoo, Botanical serum by Leland Francis and the Rose Glow Mist by Pixi.

Give us a 5 minute skincare/makeup strategy for your next Zoom meeting or date.
Wash your face with your favorite cleanser, then apply a serum and a moisturizing cream.

Apply concealer under the eye area and in any other imperfection. Set it with an illuminating powder. That’s your base!

For contour and highlight I use Charlotte Tilbury bronze & glow contour duo palette. Winged eyeliner, some Pix black mascara and finally, Rose Glow mist by Pixi to set the natural makeup look.

What are your tips and tricks to keeping healthy, clear skin?
 I follow these rules religiously:

1. Never go to sleep with makeup on

2. Never go out without sunscreen

3. Change pillow folder every 2 days

4. Drink 8 glasses of water a day

Not drinking or smoking is crucial too.

Do you have any other beauty hacks you can share with us?
Definitely avoid wearing foundation everyday, the less makeup you apply the more your skin can breathe.

Use at least one vitamin C product every morning, I use Vitamin-C Caviar Balm by Pixi.

Also, avoid as much as possible sodas and deep fried foods.

Can you share a recipe with us that you enjoy making at home?
 I’m obsessed with homemade soft tacos!

You just need:

Pulled rotisserie chicken, salsa verde, chopped onions, cilantro and soft tacos.

Heat the chicken and the salsa verde, add 2 spoons to each taco and top with some onions and chopped cilantro.

Low calorie and delicious! I can eat up to 5 in one time.

What is your favorite fashion trend right now?
Boss pants! The wider the better. They’re comfy, classy and bossy!

Who are your top three favorite designers?
Bottega Veneta, Alberta Ferretti and Givenchy.

What are three staple pieces in your closet you cannot live without?
A pair of white sneakers (or 2), a statement blazer, and a pair of grey oversized sweatpants.

What advice do you have for keeping organized while staying busy?
My best advice is to schedule your time, I used to work on several things at a time, I would get overwhelmed, and end up just wasting my time. Sticking to a routine has been working great for me, I dedicate mornings to work, afternoons to self-care and workout, and nights to cook with family and watch Netflix.

Are you working on any exciting projects this year?
I had a few exciting projects before we got hit with this new reality. As of now, everything is put on hold till further notice. There’s nothing left to do other than stay calm and stay at home. Hopefully everything will come back to normality soon and we can keep on with our lives!

Where do you live and what do you enjoy spending most of your time doing?
I live in Vegas baby! I moved here from Rome, Italy, 8 years ago.Most of the time I’m traveling, but when I’m home, I truly enjoy cuddling and walking with my pug, Emilio.There’s always something fun happening in Vegas. I love trying new restaurants and once in a while I go to concerts and shows.

How did you start your career as an influencer?
I started back in 2013, when I just moved to the US. Because of immigration rules, I couldn’t work, drive, or leave the country. I only had a laptop and 3 languages. That’s how I started my blog “”, just a fun way to communicate to the world while waiting for my freedom again!

Later that year, I opened my YouTube channel, “ Naty Ashba”, I’ve always had so much fun interacting in front of a camera! Especially in my native language, Spanish. Instagram came along. As I was growing up, I realized it’s truly my passion to be able to connect with people and inspire in a positive way anytime I can. I feel like each one of us can do something to make this world a better place.

How do you develop inspiration and ideas for the great content you create?
I used to schedule so much content ahead of time and I started feeling demotivated. Like everything else, you need balance. It’s been a year since I live “by the day”. I only shoot content when I’m inspired and I don’t study it too much. It keeps me inspired to come up with good ideas.

How do you stay up to date with new fashion trends and beauty hacks?
I’m old school, I am a huge fan of fashion magazines! Vogue, Instyle, Grazia Italia and Modeliste Magazine are my favorite ones. I also don’t miss one Fashion Week 🙂 It’s also very easy to stay up to date with social media nowadays! You can be always updated by following your favorite influencers!
