Camila Cabello's glam during the iHeartRadio Music Awards on March 11 worked for both of her colorful looks. The singer's red carpet glam also complemented her bright pink ensemble while hitting the stage to perform her hit single Havana. “Because of the short turnaround time in-between red carpet and her performance, I wanted to create a look that was classic, sexy and bold and would suit both her red carpet and performance look,” makeup artist Allan Avendaño told HOLA! USA. The newest face of L'Oréal Paris' glamsquad only used products from the brand to create the versatile look.

EYES: After using primer on Camila’s lids and applying her metallic eyeshadow, Allan used the Telescopic Liquid Liner in Carbon Black starting at the middle of the lid and then creating a thick outer wing, leaving the inner corners with a very thin line. Then, to create a more opaque look, he went over the liquid liner with a pencil liner and smudged the outer corners of the bottom lash line. To really make the eye look pop, Allan drew on a parallel subtle liner on the bottom to create a double wing effect. He finished the eye with a volumizing black mascara and focused on the outer corners.

FACE: For her complexion, Allan first applied a moisturizing illuminator to prep the face and create a glowy base. Then, he used a foundation and a concealer to give Camila an even canvas. For her blush, bronzer and highlighter, the makeup artist used L’Oréal’s True Match Lumi Glow Nude Palette in Sunkissed, which lasted all night.
HAIR: Hairstylist Dimitris Giannetos decided to create a laid-back yet glamorous look for the former Fifth Harmony singer. "I really wanted to make this look special for her," he told HOLA! USA. "This natural look was inspired by Camila’s bohemian dress and looks seen on the runways.” The result was a texturized low pony with a deep side part and overall tousled volume.

To start, Dimitris prepped her hair with L’Oréal’s BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse to give her the foundation for a voluminous look that would last all night. Then, he added the brand’s Extraordinary Oil-In-Cream to add shine to Camila’s hair and simultaneously nourish it. Afterwards, he used a 1 1/2” curling iron and wrapped her hair around the barrel with a little twist on his wrist while doing so to avoid any flatness. This allowed him to define Camila’s curls for a natural and boho look. Next, he parted her hair on the left and pulled the hair back into a low ponytail. He left a few front pieces out to frame her face and then wrapped the ponytail with a thick, silver hair bangle. He finished the look by using hairspray to set it in place for her dancing.
