Mis Compras de Marzo y Abril de 2019

Mis Compras de Marzo y Abril de 2019

Hola y feliz domingo. A veces mis compras de maquillaje y productos de belleza tienen una temática específica. Por ejemplo, entre marzo y abril de 2019 me enfoqué en productos para la piel. No compré ningunas sombras o nada que realmente le diera color a mi look, sino que me concentré en lo más básico del maquillaje.

Una compra que no fue maquillaje pero que era necesaria fue mi crema Jergens Natural Glow. Todavía no estreno esta porque tengo otras en fila que estoy utilizando y que necesito acabar, pero me encanta el efecto que esta crema va dando en la piel cuando se utiliza con frecuencia.

Para la piel de la cara, compré dos productos que rápidamente se han convertido en mis favoritos. En primer lugar está la Cushion Foundation de Wet n Wild. Creo que el diseño de esta base ha hecho que la aplicación sea un proceso fácil, rápido y sobre todo limpio. Además tengo el Butter Bronzer de Physicians Formula que da ese efecto de bronceado natural que me encanta, y huele delicioso a bronceador.

De Physicians Formula también compré la Super CC cream pero todavía necesito jugar un poco con ella. No estoy segura de que me guste mucho todavía porque creo que es muy líquida  y que esto hace que la aplicación sea difícil. Para finalizar la rutina de maquillaje compré el Facial Spray de Mario Badescu, que se ha vuelto uno de mis productos favoritos para cuando no tengo mucho maquillaje encima o quiero un look más natural.

¿Qué productos han comprado recientemente y qué piensan de ellos? Cuéntenme en los comentarios.

¡Feliz domingo!

Con amor, Miss Camila

Colour Pop Try-On Haul

Colour Pop Try-On Haul

Hello and happy Sunday. A few months ago was my sister’s birthday, so I bought her two Colour Pop palettes, and I obviously got some goodies for myself. In this post, I’ll show you two looks I created with what I bought. Let’s get started, shall we?

 

This look was created with Hooked and Trophies from the Good Sport palette. On my lips I’m wearing  Ultra Matte Lip in Class Pet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For this look, I used Licious and High Hopes from the Good Sport palette on the eyes and the Ultra Matte Lip in Dr. M for lipstick.

I additionally bought a Lippie Pencil in Contempo, which is a pinky mauve, and a gorgeous hot pink Matte Lux Lipstick in Maxed Out.

What’s your favorite Colour Pop product? Let me know and maybe I’ll buy it next.

Happy Sunday!

Love, Miss Camila

February 2019 Ipsy Glam Bag

February 2019 Ipsy Glam Bag

DERMAE

Hello and happy Sunday. Today I’m going to haul and review the five products that I got in my Ipsy Glam Bag for the month of February. I am also going to share with you the information related to prices and sizes, and finally, we will see whether these products worked for me. Let’s get started, shall we?

Kokie Cosmetics Be Bright Illuminating Concealer in Light

I’d heard about this brand from Tati, but I’d never used anything from them before. I got a full-size concealer in my glam bag, which is highly appreciated. It contains 6ml or 0.2 fl. oz. and it is $8. I wouldn’t buy the concealer because I don’t think it did much for me as we can see in the picture. I mean, it’s almost as if the dark circles under my eyes had been accentuated, but I’ll look through the page and see if there’s anything that catches my eye because I think the price range is great.

Seraphine Botanicals Natural Radiance Booster in Daisy + Pearl

As I’ve said in previous Ipsy hauls, Seraphine Botanicals is a brand I got to know through Ipsy and I have loved pretty much every single product I’ve gotten from them. This product is a win for me because it gives my skin that healthy glow, but it still keeps everything very natural. Simply put, this is my type of highlighter. What I don’t like about this brand is the price point because for the $22 that I would need for one single “booster,” I could buy two highlighters from drugstore brands. I got the full-size version in my glam bag, which weighs 3.5g or 0.12 oz.

Royal & Langnickel Moda Pro Glow Brush

I got the actual brush, as it happens with beauty tools, and let me tell you, I’m in love. I think this is great for applying highlighter in a very precise but smooth way. I have even used it for the inner-corner highlight, and it’s worked amazingly. This brush is $6.99, which I think is a very good price for such high-quality tools. I might consider buying from this brand when shopping for new brushes.

Meech N Mia Pressed Eye Shadow in Taupe 

There isn’t really too much I can say about this shadow other than it works great as a transition shade or as a wash of color on more natural days. I got the full-size version, which weighs 3g or 0.1 oz, and it is $11.50. Each single eye shadow is $11.50. Would I buy a single eyeshadow for the price of an entire palette? I think you already know the answer to that question.

Sur. Medic + Sheet Mask Duo: Age Control Multi-Vita & Vital Collagen 

I’ve gotten more into sheet masks with time because I think they’re way more practical. I like that my skin looks glowy and healthy after applying one, which you can totally tell by my picture. I couldn’t find a link to the Age Control Multi-Vita mask, but I’d assume it costs $3.50, which is the price I found for the Vital Collagen one. It’s a very reasonable price, which I’d definitely pay.

I am super happy about this glam bag because, and I’m sure you must’ve noticed, all the products I got were full-size. I think that’s a first for Ipsy and I think that is an example of how they’re working towards improving the quality of their bags. In the comments below, tell me which of these products you’d like to try and why.

Happy Sunday!

Love, Miss Camila

Shining, Shimmering Splendid

Shining, Shimmering Splendid

 

Hello and happy Monday. I know that today’s look probably seems like nothing special, but I’m telling you, it’s soft and glowy and beautiful. Now, the day I did this look, I forgot to take a picture of the products I used, but I remember the steps I followed, which you can see below:

  1. Primer
  2. Foundation
  3. Concealer
  4. Powder
  5. Eyebrows
  6. Copper (start at the inner corner and blend across the lid)
  7. Liquid highlighter (inner corner)
  8. Faux black eyeliner (tightline)
  9. Mascara
  10. Contour
  11. Stick blush
  12. Liquid highlighter
  13. Glitter liquid lipstick
  14. Dewy setting spray

Do you prefer to have an all matte look or an all shimmer one? Let me know in the comments.

Happy Monday!

Love, Miss Camila

 

Day-to-Night Glam

Day-to-Night Glam

Hello and happy Monday. I had originally labeled today’s look “Soft Daytime Glam” and then I realized that nobody aside from me would really call dark colors soft, and for someone who likes very natural looks, the name would be misleading. I have been wearing darker colors more during the day, and I think the more I do, the more confident and playful I’ve been getting with the looks I tried. I wore this look yesterday for a family event that was in the afternoon, so I needed it to be both day and night appropriate, which can be tricky. I think this look would be great if you need to do your makeup and go about your day in the morning but you have an event later and don’t have time to change your entire face. These are the steps I followed to achieve it:

  1. Primer
  2. Foundation
  3. Concealer
  4. Powder
  5. Eyebrows
  6. Shimmery black (start in the inner corner and blend across the lid)
  7. Matte brown (crease and lower lash line)
  8. Copper (inner corner)
  9. Black eyeliner (waterline)
  10. Mascara
  11. Bronzer
  12. Blush
  13. Nude lipstick
  14. Matte setting spray

What do you think is the one feature for a killer night makeup look? Let me know in the comments.

Happy Monday!
Love, Miss Camila

Empties #10: The Good Bag

Empties #10: The Good Bag

Hello and happy Thursday. It’s been a long while since the last time I did an “empties” post even though the most recent edition was published fairly recently. Today I want to focus on brands, more than products, that I will continue to be supporting. For a while now I’ve started to be more conscious of my purchases and that means buying from brands that are female owned and that have cruelty-free products. Some are also indie or family-owned, which is cool because it’s nice to see small businesses thrive. Without further ado, here’s the list of good brands: 

Are there any brands that you know of that should make it to the list? Or some that I’ve listed that shouldn’t be here? Share your knowledge with me in the comments below.

Happy Thursday!

Love, Miss Camila

 

Changes in my Makeup Techniques

Changes in my Makeup Techniques

Announcement.png

Hello and happy Sunday. I’ve noticed on Youtube that the “my makeup then vs. now” videos have resurfaced, and even though I already made a post in which I compared how I used to do my makeup before and how I currently do it, I think it would be really useful for me to really talk about the techniques I’m using now and how they’ve changed over time. I’m going to go step by step, following my usual makeup routine, and I’ll explain how everything’s changed. Let’s get started, shall we?

Primer

When it comes to primer application, the biggest change is that now I almost always use a brush. When I started wearing primer, I’d apply it with my hands, but now the brush is my preferred tool for application.

Foundation 

Did you notice I didn’t continue with concealer? I have recently switched up my routine, and now I apply foundation straight after priming and then I do concealer. I’ve noticed that my skin looks better, more even, and that the dark circles under my eyes are better concealed.

Concealer

I now apply my concealer with a brush as opposed to a sponge. It does take longer to blend, but the finish is so much better that the extra time needed is totally worth it.

Baking

There was a time when I used to bake religiously, but now I only do it when I’m going full-glam. I like how my skin looks when I don’t bake, like it’s more natural, at least that’s what it seems.

Eyebrows

Lately I haven’t been applying any color to my eyebrows, just a clear gel so that they stay in place throughout the day.

Eyeshadow

I now prefer a wash of color, applied with a blending brush, rather than something more elaborate like I used to before.

Those are the main changes I’ve made when it comes to application techniques. Have you changed anything in the way you apply your makeup? Let me know in the comments.

Happy Sunday!
Love, Miss Camila
