Camila has definitely learned a few tricks over the years when it comes to glam!

Today I’m sharing with you guys some of my go-to beauty tips! Perfect for any time you want to feel a little more glam, but especially during awards season.

When doing bold lips:

Do not pair a big bold lip with bold or smokey eyes. Instead, pair bold lips with easy and simple eyes give definition but only really close to the lashes using a bronzer and brown palette. 

Mascara on the bottom lashes:

Only put mascara on the root of the bottom lashes. If you run mascara all along your bottom lashes the result will be too much lash and most likely raccoon eyes!

Doing a pencil line on your lips:

Please stay in the lines, and follow the natural line of your lips. You don’t want to way over draw here … Apply one coat of lipstick, and then take a tissue and blot your lips once, then apply your lipstick color again … Finally, use a small soft make up brush to contour your lips with your regular concealer — That way the lipstick will not run off of your lip line!


My go-to way to get beautiful soft and wavy hair:

Start by taking small sections of your hair and wrap them one by one around a medium size curling iron for a few seconds. Next, set each piece with a little bit of hairspray  … Hold on to the ends of your hair when you wrap it around the curling iron. This will help you wrap your hair, and it will also leave the ends of your hair straight (which you want). Next, take each curl section and roll it up with your fingers and pin it to your head. Repeat this process throughout your entire head.

Let pins stay for 5-10 minutes

Then, take out the pins and  flip your head over and brush out curls with your fingers. Voila!
