Going to a Dior couture show is a full circle moment of sorts for Camila Coelho. Before she grew a massive following on YouTube posting makeup tutorials, the Brazilian mega-influencer got her start as a makeup artist at the Dior counter in Macy’s. 7.2 million fans on Instagram later, and she now gets whisked away to Paris as a guest of the fashion house—fully stocked with all the Dior Beauty one could ever desire. Ahead, Coelho lets us in on a day in her life during couture fashion week, shares products she’s loving right now, and more quick beauty tips.
How would you describe your summer beauty routine?
More sunscreen and less moisturizer. Glowing foundation [over] a matte finish one! Matte lipsticks [over] gloss, or colorful balms!
What are 5 beauty products you are loving now, and why?
1. Dior Backstage Foundation for its lightweight and matte finish
2. Caudalie Beauty Water is perfect for hydrating skin before and after makeup
3. Ouai Wave Spray to hold my messy beach curls
4. Dior Addict Lip Glow (love all colors) to keep lips hydrated with a touch of color
5. Lorac Tantalizer Body Bronzer is my go-to to keep legs looking glowy on summer days
How do you keep your skin in check when you’re traveling so much?
Face masks help me so much—hydrating, pore tightening, all of them. I also drink lots of water and always using my jade roller in the morning to reduce puffiness!
Any Brazilian beauty tips/traditions you particularly love?
Hydrating hair in a hot shower cap (Brazilians love homemade hair masks). The trendy one now is using pure organic coconut oil.
What are your best tips for taking a makeup selfie like a beauty blogger?
[Shoot in] natural day light, but in the shade. When I’m inside, I always go in front of a window. The angle should be just an inch above your head—you will look amazing.
