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!

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

June 2019 Glam Bag Plus

June 2019 Glam Bag Plus

Hello and happy Sunday. Last week I shared with you my final Ipsy Glam Bag haul and today it’s time to do the same with the Glam Bag Plus. I’m honestly not upset that I only got two boxes because they weren’t really good. I’m going to go over the items but I won’t share links because I wouldn’t recommend any.

If you remember, besides my May Glam Bag Plus being super late, it didn’t come with a booklet explaining the products. This one did, but again, I got no makeup bag. I think I made a mistake in last week’s post and I mentioned the Tetris x Ipsy palette, but I actually got it in the Glam Bag Plus, not the regular one. The color selection is a shit show: you get a matte beige, a super light brown, a purple, a pink, a blue, and a silver, all of which, might I add, were shimmery. In my opinion, there was no color story there. The Ipsy value was $25, which means that it almost covered the cost of the entire box.

Then we had the Suva eyeliner and brush, which I get, can be useful for people who are learning to apply eyeliner or who prefer a softer touch than the one from liquid eyeliners. It is also a female-owned brand, so that adds points. The downside is that you must “activate” the product using water, and that added step is annoying enough for me to either use regular liquid eyeliner or not wear any at all. The value estimated by Ipsy was $26. I’m not paying that for some black paint I seldom wear on my eyelids.

My anger is increasing because we’re now going to discuss the 111 Skin booster or whatever. It isn’t even clear what it does to the skin, and honestly, it has the texture and scent of spit. Yes, I’ve had spit on my face. Don’t ask. It is a male-owned brand, which I wouldn’t be too eager to support, and its estimated value is $180. No, thank you.

Previously I told you how I hate that I get the same type of product over and over. Well, this time I got my second tube of mascara in a month. This one is from Pür, which is a female-owned brand. The estimated value of this product is $21. I think at that point the people at Ipsy weren’t even trying to “personalize” my boxes or bags.

Finally, I got the liquid lipstick at the top. It’s from Ciaté, which is a female-owned brand, and as you can see, it is very similar to another Ciaté lipstick I have, which I got from another Ipsy Glam Bag. The color is undeniably gorgeous, although at $19 I wouldn’t buy it.

This frustrating haul has come to an end. Now I’m going to put on my PJs and play Sims. While I do that let me know your thoughts on subscription services that offer “upgrades” for an added value.

Happy Sunday!

Love, Miss Camila

Hello and happy Monday. Never in a million years would I have expected to actually prefer the “rejected” look out of the choices I gave over at Instagram. but look at the picture and tell me this isn’t really nice and something you, or at least I would totally rock on a regular day. If you want to compare both looks, just check out last week’s post. I’m using the Tetris x Ipsy Block Party palette. These are the steps I followed to achieve this look:

  3. Stick foundation
  4. Eyebrows
  5. Back-to-Back (base)
  6. Skyline (crease)
  7. High Score (outer and inner corner)
  8. Line Clear (center of the lid)
  9. Pink pencil eyeliner (waterline)
  10. Mascara
  11. Bronzer
  12. Matte blush

  14. Setting spray

Which of the two looks is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below.

IG Chooses My Makeup: The Look

Hello and happy Monday. Welcome to another episode of “IG Chooses My Makeup.” I’ve really enjoyed working on this post series because I think I’ve taken advantage of it in ways I hadn’t anticipated. I originally thought I’d get two posts out of the idea and that’s it, but it’s actually become way more than that and I’m happy to explore my creativity both as a blogger and as a makeup artist. We already saw the candidates and the winning products, but today I’m here to actually show you the look and go through the step-by-step process. Now, this isn’t what I would’ve picked, but I’ll discuss my take in another post. For now, these are the steps I followed to achieve the look Instagram chose for me. I’m using the Proceed With Caution palette by Colour Pop and Shayla.

 

 

  1. Primer
  2. Concealer
  3. Foundation
  4. Eyebrows
  5. Culture (crease)
  6. Gloves On (start close to the top lash line and smudge upwards)
  7. HZRD (eyelid)
  8. Blend in Gloves On and HZRD at the center of the lid with a clean brush.
  9. Black pencil eyeliner (tightline)
  10. Black liquid eyeliner
  11. Mascara
  12. Bronzer
  13. Blush
  14. Highlighter
  15. Matte pink lipstick
  16. Setting spray

Was this the look you had envisioned? Let me know in the comments below.

Happy Monday!

ColourPop Haul #1

ColourPop Haul #1

Hello and happy Sunday. Since my Ipsy subscription ended, I’ve decided to regulate my makeup consumption and to really try to buy stuff that I’ll be using. This means that I won’t get any makeup-related subscription services, at least for a while and that I’ll buy what I consider I need or want and will definitely use from ColourPop.

I love ColourPop for many reasons: it is female-owned and employs and empowers many women, it is affordable yet high-quality, it’s cruelty-free, it ships internationally…basically, all I could ask for a makeup brand besides providing me with cute makeup, you know? Let’s get started, shall we?

I got Maleficent’s set from the Villains collection, but I think it is out of stock, so I’ll link each individual product.

 

 

Proceed With Caution Shadow Palette($15)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Main Squeeze Shadow Palette ($12) The other shadow you see there was a gift considering this palette was launched for ColourPop’s fifth birthday. I don’t think it is available for sale.

What do you think about my recent purchases and my decision to regulate my makeup consumption? I will still be playing with it, but I’ll be more mindful of what I have and I’ll try to use it up before getting more stuff.

Happy Sunday!

Love, Miss Camila
