2019 Pride Makeup

2019 Pride Makeup

Before you read this post, make sure you have read my post I Can Do Better  to know how and where to donate, get informed, support, and follow the Black Lives Matter movement and people from the Black community. Si hablas español, y especialmente si vives en Colombia, lee mi publicación Puedo hacer algo mejor para enterarte cómo puedes apoyar a la Comunidad afrocolombiana. Hello, happy Monday and happy Pride month! If you know me, then you know I don’t really follow social rules or cues when it comes to my makeup. I do whatever I want whenever I want. That being said, there are some special dates when I go literally all out (pun intended) and create these extravagant, whimsical makeup looks. For a while now, I have put a lot of thought on my makeup for Pride, even if I don’t go out for the parades. Just wearing the makeup is an experience in and of itself. These are the steps I followed to achieve the look:

 

 

  1. Primer
  2. Concealer
  3. Stick contour
  4. Foundation
  5. Powder
  6. Eyebrows
  7. From the Proceed With Caution palette: Warning (outer corner) and Caution (Inner corner)
  8. From the Good Sport palette: Sista (lower lash line)
  9. From the Tetris Block Party palette: Line Clear (lower lash line)
  10. From the Wanderlust palette: Sea Salt (center of the lid)
  11. Purple pencil eyeliner
  12. Mascara
  13. Powder contour
  14. Bronzer
  15. Red blush
  16. Red highlighter
  17. Blue liquid lipstick (half of the mouth)
  18. Green liquid lipstick (half of the mouth)

Have you seen any Pride makeup looks this year? Share them with me in the comments. I need inspiration for 2020.

Happy Monday!

Love, Miss Camila

 

 

 

 

How to Look Like You Have Your Shit Together

How to Look Like You Have Your Shit Together

Hello and happy Monday. Let’s just take a break for a second and admire how adult I look in the thumbnail. I don’t mean that I look old, although saying that doesn’t bother me as much as I used to. I simply look, like the title of this post suggests, like I have my shit together. I look like someone who works out, eats their veggies, has their eight glasses of wine a day, is the best at their six-figure job and has mindblowing sex every night, and since I want you to look like that too, here are the steps I followed to achieve this:

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1.  Primer
  2. Foundation
  3. Concealer
  4. Powder (bake)
  5. Eyebrows
  6. Gold eyeshadow (wash of color)
  7. Black liquid eyeliner
  8. Faux black pencil eyeliner (lower lash line=
  9. Mascara
  10. Bronzer
  11. Shimmery blush
  12. Lipgloss
  13. Dewy setting spray

What do you think is a telling sign in a person who has their shit together? I’m asking for a friend.

Happy Monday!

Love, Miss Camila

 

 

Sun Kissed Makeup Look

Sun Kissed Makeup Look

Hello and happy Monday. I don’t usually go for warm tones, or at least not a look that is made up exclusively of them because I feel that would be a bit too much for me. Some days, though, I wake up with a weird makeup idea and I go with it. My weird makeup idea of the day is a yellow and orange look that would complement my yellow dress. What can I say? I was feeling all the hippie vibes, letting the sunshine in. For this look, I’m using the Colour Pop Good Sport palette. These are the steps I followed to achieve the look:

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Primer
  2. Concealer
  3. Foundation
  4. Powder
  5. Eyebrows
  6. High Hopes (crease)
  7. Liquid eyeshadow (eyelid)
  8. Rookie (center of the lid)
  9. Champagne eyeshadow (inner corner)
  10. Orange pencil eyeliner
  11. Mascara
  12. Contour
  13. Bronzer
  14. Blush
  15. Champagne highlighter
  16. Orange creme lipstick
  17. Orange lipgloss
  18. Setting spray

What are your thoughts on yellow and orange makeup looks? Do you like them? Let me know in the comments.

Happy Monday!

IG Chooses My Makeup: My Take

IG Chooses My Makeup: My Take

Hello and happy Monday. As promised, this is the last post in the “IG Chooses My Makeup” series. Today I wanted to show you my picks, my own take in the look. As you can see in the picture, it’s pretty soft and wearable. Yes, I still did a smoky eye using the same shades I did a few weeks ago, but I didn’t wear liquid eyeliner and the pencil eyeliner I chose was yellow as opposed to black. This made the eyes look softer and more smoked out. I also picked lipgloss instead of the matte, super pigmented pink lipstick that had been IG’s choice, and I didn’t use any highlighter because I thought that would be excessive. I’m using the Shayla x Colour Pop Proceed With Caution palette. These are the steps I followed to achieve the look.

 

 

 

  1. Primer
  2. Concealer (eyelids)
  3. Culture (crease)
  4. Gloves On (top lash line- smudge)
  5. HZRD (eyelid)
  6. Use a clean blending brush to smudge any rough edges and blend all shades together.
  7. Yellow pencil eyeliner (waterline)
  8. Culture (lower lash line)
  9. Gloves On (smudge over yellow)
  10. HZRD (blend on lower lash line)
  11. Concealer
  12. Stick foundation
  13. Eyebrows
  14. Bronzer
  15. Matte blush
  16. Brown lipgloss
  17. Matte setting spray

Would you wear this look? If so, where? Let me know in the comments below.

Happy Monday!

Getting Rid of Old Makeup

Getting Rid of Old Makeup

Hello and happy Sunday. Take a look at that sad pile of makeup, which I clearly kept long after I was supposed to. The first step is admitting that you have a problem and when it comes to knowing when to get rid of stuff, I know I have one. Okay, I do know when it’s time, but I don’t let go. Today, I’ll share with you some tips that I have applied to be sure that it’s time to move a makeup item to its forever home in the trashcan.

Change in the Smell 

Please please please please throw away any makeup item that starts smelling funny. When lipstick is bad, it starts getting a play-dough smell. That should give you the hint that it is no longer safe for you to smear it on your lips. If your primer starts smelling way more chemically, almost like pure alcohol, you know that it’s time for you to part ways with it. Basically, be on the lookout for any changes in scent because what they indicate is that there has been a change in the way the ingredients of your makeup item are working.

Texture/ Color Change 

While changes in smell are very obvious and telling, changes in texture might be tricky. If you feel like all of a sudden your concealer does not apply the same way that it usually did, it probably means it’s expired and the components are separating. If something is suddenly too liquidy or you start noticing little clogs that weren’t there before, it’s time to throw it away. Change in color can also be a telling sign.

What other signs tell you that you should throw away a makeup product? Let me know in the comments below.

Happy Sunday!

Nude as F*ck Wash of Color

Nude as F*ck Wash of Color

Hello and happy Monday. Ever since I saw a picture of Khloé Kardashian rocking a super simple wash of color look on her eyes, I’ve been obsessed. Now, this look has existed forever, so Khloé didn’t create it or anything, but I think she’s one of the people setting the trend again for it. If you don’t know, the wash of color is a very diffused application of eyeshadow all over the eyelid and in the lower lash line. What I mean by “diffused,” and what you probably already gathered by the term “wash of color” is that it is neither precise nor packed; you just want your eyes to look like they have some color on them. I think it’s a perfect look to try on when you’re on the go because it looks like you put effort into it when you really didn’t. These are the steps I followed to accomplish it:

  1. Primer
  2. Concealer
  3. Foundation
  4. Eyebrows
  5. Shimmery brown (eyelid + bottom lash line)
  6. Copper pencil eyeliner (tightline)
  7. Mascara
  8. Bronzer
  9. Blush
  10. Highlighter
  11. Opaque lipgloss
  12. Metallic lip topper

Which shade do you reach for when doing a wash of color look? Let me know in the comments.

Happy Monday!

Love, Miss Camila

Trying On New Makeup

Trying On New Makeup

Hello and happy Monday. I know that I show you new makeup looks, but unless I’m doing a haul or an unboxing, you don’t see the products I get. When I say I get them I mean I either buy them myself or receive them in subscription services that I paid for myself. This isn’t really a tutorial, but it’s just me trying on a bunch of new stuff all at once and putting a look together.

 

 

  1. Primer
  2. Foundation
  3. Eyebrows
  4. Matte brown (crease)
  5. Copper (eyelid)
  6. Shimmery light brown (center of the lid)
  7. Rose gold (inner corner)
  8. Rose gold eyeliner
  9. Mascara
  10. Bronzer
  11. Cream lip tint
  12. Setting spray

As you can see, this is a very natural look and aside from the mascara, I didn’t add any other products from the ones in the thumbnail. Where can this look be used? Let me know in the comments below.

Happy Monday!

Love, Miss Camila
