  3. Concealer
  4. Foundation
  5. Powder
  6. Eyebrows
  7. Matte orange (crease)
  8. Pink (eyelid)

Hello and happy Monday. Today is clearly not the first time I try this look. In fact, it’s been my go-to for months and I don’t know why I love it so much. Basically, it’s a brown halo eye with an iridescent blue or purple on the center. I know what you’re thinking: what an absolute disaster, but this actually works so nicely, it’s become sort of like my staple eye look of the moment. Below are the steps I followed to achieve it.

  1. Primer
  2. Concealer
  3. Foundation
  4. Powder
  5. Eyebrows
  6. Golden brown (crease)
  7. Iridescent blue (center of the lid)
  8. Brown eyeliner (tightline)
  9. Golden brown (lower lash line)
  10. Mascara
  11. Bronzer
  12. Blush
  13. Highlighter
  14. Nude lipstick

What has been your preferred color combination as of lately? Let me know in the comments.

Happy Monday!

Hello and happy Monday. Let me be completely honest right now and tell you it’s the middle of October, and I’m really in the mood for a lowkey Halloween look. I know, I know, and I’m not sorry because let’s face it, there are places in the world where it’s fall and not spring like in the States, so today I’m going to cater to all your earth-toned wants and needs and bring you this black smokey eye and orangey nude lip. Below are the steps I followed to achieve this look.

  1. Primer
  2. Stick contour
  3. Concealer
  4. Foundation
  5. Powder
  6. Eyebrows
  7. Black eyeliner (bottom half of the top lid)
  8. Matte brown (crease)
  9. Shimmery black (eyelid)
  10. Mascara
  11. Bronzer
  12. Blush
  13. Highlighter
  14. Nude lipliner
  15. Orange lip gloss

Now, obviously October is one of my favorite months to be really extra and out there with my makeup. Which is yours? Let me know in the comments below.

How I Get Cheap E-Books

How I Get Cheap E-Books

Alibris: Books, Music, & Movies

100th (2).pngHello and happy Wednesday. I am very excited to bring this post to you because I feel that my how-to posts in general are the ones you enjoy the most and the ones you can take the most advantage of as well, which is always cool because I feel that I’m sharing useful content. Today, after five Kindle and audiobook hauls, I am going to talk to you about the system I use in order to get the most items for the lowest price. Let’s get started, shall we?

Now, I know I published a similar post a while ago on how I get cheap or free books, but I couldn’t find the link, so I’m thinking I probably published it in my previous blog and it is now gone forever. Basically, in there I talked about how I am subscribed to sites like BookBub and Riffle Books that send me daily newsletters with ebooks that are on sale. In there, I also mentioned my subscription to Kindle Unlimited, which lets you have a maximum of ten ebooks at a time for just $10 a month.

Those are awesome things and I have included them in my system because I’ve gotten more consistent with my book buying habits recently.  I pretty much rely on my Amazon wishlist, which means I rarely impulse buy books that weren’t in the plans. I mean, you know how long my wishlist and TBR lists are, I can’t afford to make them longer.

What I do, and this is pretty much a once-a-month kind of thing, is I look through my wishlist and just check whether any book is on sale. On sale means it is $1.99 or less. Yes, I am that cheap, but you’ve seen how many books I’ve been able to find, and I’m just talking about the past four months.

In my last haul, I featured audiobooks. Now, what I do to get cheap audiobooks is I’ll go to my Kindle library, and I’ll do this in either my Kindle or my iPad and I’ll check out the whispersync thing, I’m not sure how it’s called. It’s basically the Audible version of the books, only you don’t have to pay for a monthly subscription, but you just buy the audiobook. You can do that because you already own the book. Again, for this I check that the audiobooks don’t cost more than $1.99, or I’ll stretch it to $2.99 if I got the reading version for free.

Do you have a system for buying digital books online that won’t break the bank? Let me know in the comments. Also, let me know if you’d like to see a version of this post for physical books.

Happy reading!

Love, Miss Camila

Hello and happy Monday. Sometimes I get this idea in my mind of what I want to do with my makeup and I won’t rest until I’ve executed it. This is exactly the case with today’s makeup look, a purple and pink smokey eye achieved with pencil eyeliners. You know me and you know that I’m extra af, but I also think you can pull this off at more “serious” occasions, even at work. These are the steps I followed:

  1. Primer
  2. Eye primer
  3. Matte brown (crease)
  4. Purple pencil eyeliner (bottom half of the top lid)
  5. Pink pencil eyeliner (top half of the top lid)
  6. Purple eyeshadow (seal purple liner)
  7. Pink eyeshadow (seal pink liner)
  8. Pink eyeshadow (lower lash line)
  9. Mascara
  10. Concealer
  11. Foundation
  12. Powder
  13. Eyebrows
  14. Bronzer
  15. Blush
  16. Pink highlighter
  17. Pink liquid lipstick
  18. Dewy setting spray

Which non-neutrals would you combine for a smokey eye? Let me know in the comments.

Happy Monday!

Hello and happy Monday. Now that I have to wake up super early because of work, I only really do my makeup on the weekends, and hell, I go full glam. Lately I’ve been into looking at tutorials and putting my own twist on the looks, which is why maybe you’ll notice that the order of the steps in today’s makeup is a little different from what I normally do. Today’s look is for those of you who are feeling a bit extra and just want to be bold, brave and beautiful. These are the steps I followed:

  1. Primer
  2. Eye primer
  3. Reddish brown (crease)
  4. Dark brown (inner and outer corner)
  5. Cut crease
  6. Warm gold (center of the lid)
  7. Mascara
  8. Black (top lash line)
  9. Foundation
  10. Concealer
  11. Bake
  12. Eyebrows
  13. Reddish brown + dark brown (lower lash line)
  14. Black (lower lash line)
  15. Black eyeliner (waterline + tightline)
  16. Bronzer
  17. Contour
  18. Highlighter
  19. Orange lip cream
  20. Orange lipstick (center of the lips)
  21. Dewy setting spray

Teachers on Friday Makeup Look

Hello and happy Monday. Today’s look is the result of me trying to follow a tutorial and then doing my own thing because that’s way more fun. I think the original look was intended for school, but I think if you’re a student and you do my look, you’ll get in trouble. As I’m sure you know by now, I’m currently teaching high school, and I feel I could totally rock this look on a Friday just to portray how happy I am that the week is over and that I can rest for two days. Here are the steps I followed to achieve this look:

  1. Primer
  2. Foundation
  3. Concealer
  4. Powder
  5. Bronzer
  6. Brows
  7. Black eyeliner (waterline)
  8. Black liquid eyeliner
  9. Gray eyeshadow (lower lash line)
  10. Mascara
  11. Blush
  12. Highlighter
  13. Liquid lipstick
  14. Dewy setting spray

What is your go-to Friday look? Let me know in the comments.

Happy Monday!
