IG Picks My Makeup: The Candidates

IG Picks My Makeup: The Candidates

Hello and happy Monday. Since I’m currently on vacation, I decided to do something fun and ambitious with my makeup. This time, it involved Instagram, and more specifically, the friends and family that follow me. I consider myself lucky because I know that many people who follow me are really interested in what I do with makeup, and this wasn’t the exception. I basically followed the “IG chooses my…” trend which was on full swing a few months ago. For each step of my regular makeup process, I selected two products and then made polls for the people who follow me (it feels so weird to say “my followers” when I’m talking about friends and family) to vote.

Here are the candidates:

Brunch With the Girls Makeup Look

Brunch With the Girls Makeup Look

Hello and happy Monday. Sometimes I have to acknowledge the fact that I am a 26-year-old and I have to act accordingly. On such occasions, I take out all my nude-colored makeup and attempt to look like I have my shit together. Last Sunday I met with some old classmates, and I must admit I cleaned up nicely, as you can see in the thumbnail. I’m using Colour Pop’s Good Sport palette, so you know when I reference the names of the shades.¬† These are the steps I followed to achieve the look:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Primer
  2. Concealer
  3. Foundation
  4. Eyebrows
  5. High Hopes (Crease)
  6. Hooky (Eyelid)
  7. Rookie (Center of the lid)
  8. Blue pencil eyeliner (lower lash line)
  9. Mascara
  10. Bronzer
  11. Blush
  12. Nude lipstick
  13. Metallic lip topper
  14. Setting spray

Pink Cut Crease

Pink Cut Crease

Hello and happy Monday. When I say it’s been a while since I’ve done this, I mean it. Luckily for you, I have one month of vacation, which I’ll spend writing and scheduling posts for you, including those with my face covered in makeup. Today I want to show you a classic, one of those eye looks that if you can pull off, you can do with every color combination you can think of. I am of course talking about the cut crease, which in this case is pink because I love pink. I’m using the Colour Pop Main Squeeze palette for this, so I’ll be referring to the names of each shade. These are the steps I followed to achieve the look:

 

 

 

 

  1. Primer
  2. Stick foundation
  3. Concealer
  4. Powder
  5. Eyebrows
  6. Frosé (Crease)
  7. Like It’s Hot (Eyelid)
  8. “Cut” the middle of the eyelid with concealer
  9. Maraschino (Center of the lid)
  10. Like It’s Hot (Lower lash line)
  11. Rose gold pencil eyeliner (waterline)
  12. Mascara
  13. Bronzer
  14. Pink blush
  15. Rose gold highlighter
  16. Nude liquid lipstick
  17. Nude lipgloss
  18. Setting spray

I hadn’t done a cut crease in a while. Have you? Let me know in the comments below.

Happy Monday!

Face Makeup Mini Haul

Face Makeup Mini Haul

Hello and happy Sunday. I feel like I haven’t sat down and written a makeup-related post in ages because to be fair, I haven’t sat down and properly played with makeup in a long time. I’m not going to promise to get back to it because honestly, I’m just going with my instinct and if I’m not as into makeup as I used to be, then that’s fine. Don’t get me wrong, I still wear makeup every day, I just don’t play or experiment with it as much as I used to. Anyway, when I do go full glam, my main focus is on the face, which is why today I want to talk to you about some products I got.

The sachet is a sample of a Kevyn Aucoin foundation/BB cream/ whatever you call it. It came with an eyebrow pencil I bought and honestly, they could’ve done so much better than a sachet, but it’s fine since I’m not going to shop that brand again. It was perhaps a bit too liquid and a bit too dark for my taste, which was expected since nobody really asked me what my skin tone was.

Next, we have Goldfaden MD Vital Boost Solution, which is a moisturizing cream. It smells like orange, which I’m totally into. The texture is more gel-like than that of a lotion, and it absorbs super quickly, leaving a soft sensation on the skin. I haven’t tried it for a considerable amount of time to have a clear idea of how it works, but since this came in an Ipsy Glam Bag, I don’t feel obliged to like it.

The Wet n’ Wild Cushion Foundation will change your life. Okay, let’s move on. No, but seriously, I really loved this foundation. I’m using the past tense because I’m already done with it and I’m not repurchasing it considering I got it before I pledged to only buy makeup from female-owned brands. This is really a game-changer in terms of having control of how much product you’re actually using and applying to your face. I used it with my makeup sponge and I felt that every single time, my foundation was even and the coverage was amazing.

I got the Bare Minerals setting spray, which I’m sure wasn’t called a setting spray, as a reward from Ipsy or something like that. It was okay, I mean, I didn’t notice anything different about my makeup on the days I was wearing this, which means nothing extremely bad happened but also nothing remarkably good. If you’re into natural brands and can afford this setting spray, go for it.

Is there any makeup product or brand you’re super into right now? Let me know in the comments below.

Happy Sunday!

Hello and happy Monday. When I schedule these posts I sometimes get confused because I don’t know which looks I’ve already covered and which I haven’t. The same thing happens when I think I’ve come up with a new makeup look only to discover I’d done exactly the same months before. Anyway, here’s this pink and purple look that I think is cute, and of course, below are the steps I followed to achieve it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Primer
  2. Foundation
  3. Concealer
  4. Powder
  5. Eyebrows
  6. Purple eyeshadow (eyelid)
  7. Plum (outer corner)
  8. Pink (inner corner)
  9. Purple eyeliner (tightline)
  10. Mascara
  11. Contour
  12. Blush
  13. Pink highlighter
  14. Pink lipstick
  15. Dewy setting spray

Blue Inverted Smokey Eye

Blue Inverted Smokey Eye

Hello and happy Monday. Today I bring you the rare two-looks-in-one post because, as much as I loved my blue eyeshadow, I know some people might want something more conservative. Either way, below are the steps I followed to achieve today’s looks. Keep in mind that what I mean by “inverted” smokey eye is a smokey eye that starts with a dark color in the inner corner and ends with a light color in the outer corner. It is inverted since these colors are usually applied in the opposite order.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Primer
  2. Foundation
  3. Concealer
  4. Eyebrows
  5. Powder
  6. Matte brown (crease)
  7. Dark blue (inner corner)
  8. Blue (center of the lid)
  9. Light blue (outer corner)
  10. Contour
  11. Blush
  12. Highlighter
  13. Lipgloss
  14. Dewy setting spray

Out of today’s looks, which do you like better and why? Let me know in the comments below.

Happy Monday!

10-Minute Makeup

10-Minute Makeup

Hello and happy Saturday. You know when things start to get busy for me because I post almost exclusively “quick and easy” makeup looks. The truth is, when I’m in a hurry, I try to find options that take me little time but that still show that I put something on my face, you know? Even if I’m only wearing one shade of eyeshadow and a lippie, I want these to be noticeable. I think that’s pretty clear in today’s look, which I accomplished by following these steps:

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Primer
  2. Foundation
  3. Concealer
  4. Powder
  5. Eyebrows
  6. Matte brown (crease)
  7. Black eyeshadow (top lash line)
  8. Mascara
  9. Contour
  10. Blush
  11. Red lipliner
  12. Red liquid lipstick

I love the effect of black eyeshadow as eyeliner. I think it looks smokey but at the same time, it’s defined and easier to apply than liquid liner. What do you prefer? Let me know in the comments below.

Happy Monday!

Love, Miss Camila
