Given her 7 million followers, chances are that you follow Brazilian influencer Camila Coelho, beloved for documenting her gorgeous trips around the world, eye-catching style (look at this silver jumpsuit—we want!), and stunning beauty. Coelho was not only born with a face made for the camera, but she also straight-up kills it with makeup, as we learned when we got ready with her at The London Hotel in West Hollywood before last weeks epic Dior party.

The truth is, even for an event studded with the likes of Dior Beauty spokesmodel Bella Hadid and celebs like Kendall Jenner, Coelho’s best glam team is really herself. “I love doing my own makeup—every morning it’s like therapy. I have my coffee and then do my makeup,” she said. It makes sense: Coelho was actually a Dior makeup artist at one point. Tonight she also tapped hairstylist Glen Coco Oropeza and a bevy of her favorite Dior products, including Dior Addict Lacquer Plump, the brand-new glossy lip color the party is being thrown for. Below, get all her secrets, including some of her best product recommendations.

Coelho first starts with skin care: Caudalie Beauty Elixir and, as a primer, By Terry Cellularose Brightening CC Lumi-Serum. “It acts as primer and gives glow,” she says.

Next is her complexion makeup:Dior Forever Undercover Foundation has high coverage and matte finish, but it has a radiance and stays on the whole day. I apply it with a Beautyblender. With this foundation you don’t need powder. Then I use Dior Forever Undercover Concealer. I always do [a] triangle underneath each eye and always blend with the sponge.” She follows with blush, contour, and highlighter, in that order.

For the eyes: “I used a little bit of Dior shadow in Mirror and used gel liner from Stila. The brush makes a big difference; I use Sigma beauty. Then I finish with Dior Plump’n’Volume Mascara.”

Finally, of course, are the lips, as this is, after all, a lip color launch event: “The [Dior Addict Lacquer Plump] colors are amazing, and it’s a gloss, but it’s tinted. If you take it off right away, you have a tinted lip. But to make it hold, I like [to] use a liner to contour and give that base. Tonight I covered my whole lip with a red liner from Urban Decay, and on top I’m wearing Dior Addict Lacquer Plump in 868 J’Adior.”

“Today I love natural. Today I have strong makeup because it’s a beauty event. But normally I like nothing on my lid. I love lip liner and nude liner. The skin [is] always flawless, and then mascara and highlighter.”

“I make a lip scrub at home with honey and brown sugar, and I have a lip mask I love, and it’s always with me. The Laneige Lip Mask—I put it on before bed.”

“Anytime my legs are showing, I use Lorac Tantalizer. I hope they never discontinue it; I mix [it] with lotion and spread [it] all over; it gives a beautiful glow and a tint of color.”

Her travel skin-care routine: “Masks are my must-do when I travel. I love a clay mask Fresh Umbrian Clay mask and the Charlotte Tilbury dry sheet mask. When I’m at the airport, I’ll usually have a little makeup on—B.B. cream, mascara—but then I’ll get in the plane and use Neutrogena wipes, which are my favorite, and do a sheet mask. They’ll serve me food, and I’ll have a mask on—I don’t care.”

“I always take vitamin C with me and vitamin D. When I’m traveling for fashion week, it keeps me from getting sick.”

For her high bun with texture, Oropeza prepped each section of hair with Oribe Superfine Hairspray and then used a one-inch flat iron to curl and bend. “The key is to be as random as possible,” he says. (Watch his how-to video here.) Then he used IGK Beach Club all over to add a little frizz. “Frizz is having a moment,” he says.

Next, Oropeza sectioned the hair into one big back section and two front sections. “Keep front sections separate so it can be really clean,” he says. “You have to separate sections that will be different in texture.” Finally, he pulls all sections back into one section going up. “I pretty much follow the eye line to find the perfect place to put the bun,” he says.
