Camille McDonald Talks Beauty & Fashion at ANTMLiveCanada

Camille McDonald competed in America's Next Top Model ALL STARS (cycle 12). Her vibrant personality and confidence made her my favorite contestant on ANTM. Being that we are both born to Jamaican parents, I have always identified with her passion.  At America's Next Top Model Live Canada, I asked Camille to share details on her favorite beauty products and signature style!

SB:What is your favorite must have product?
CM: There is a company called Revive sold at Neiman Marcus. Naomi Campbell swears by it! I think she uses it on her tights to prevent cellulite. The Revive face wash, toner and moisturizer are amazing!

SB: What are two beauty products can you not live without?
CM: The YSL liner is amazing. The navy blue is hard to find but it's great. Also there is a blush called Taj Mahal from NARS. It has a little bit of shimmer in it and it's orange, really great for woman of color. Highly pigmented so you use a very little of it.

SB:What is your signature style?
CM: My signature style is definitely sexy. A little bit of high fashion mixed with Caribbean cool.

I loved talking to Camile! She was sweet and definitely knew her beauty products. I wish her all the luck in the future. 

Lisa D'Amato Talks Beauty & Fashion at ANTM LiveCanada

SB: What are you must have beauty products?
LMD: My must have beauty products are the things I have in my purse at all times. Pressed powder because I live in California and of course it gets really hot outside. Of course I love lip gloss and  lip stain. Also lotion because you want to keep your skin feeling soft and moisturized. At the end of the day that's really important.

SB: What is your signature style?
LMD: I would say my signature style is a bit of a eclectic mix because I live in Hollywood, California. It's Lady Gaga, meets Mickey Avalon and Katy Perry. I always like to challenge myself with fashion. At the end of the day I'm daring and I know I can pull something off! Other people will then hopefully be inspired to take bigger chances.

SB: What do you love about Toronto?
LMD: Oh my god! What I love about T dot? It's the people, the spirit and the energy! It's amazing! I love it. I've been welcomed with such warmth.

I loved taking to Lisa on the pink carpet. She was fun and really friendly! Look out with my interview with Camille Mc Donald coming out later this week.

When did you become a make up junkie?
apetitediva: Watching my mom put on her red lipstick everyday.

That's too cute! Are you also a red lipstick wearer?

apetitediva:  Yes, I am red lipstick wearer!

 What brands are currently your "staple?"
apetitediva:  On a daily, MAC, NYX, shu uemura, eco tools, mary kay, loreal, mark

I love the fact that you don't only use high end products! What is your favorite l'oreal product?
apetitediva:  Lineur Intense felt tip liquid eyeliner

Ahh! So that's how you get your liner so perfect! I have for the girl's out there..What foundation do you use and do you have any tips?
apetitediva:  Tips: for a perfect airbrushed foundation finish, use a stippler brush and make sure you set it with a powder. I recommend finding a microdermabrasion system that works for you and use it 2-4 per month. I use Mary Kay's Microdermabrasion set. Also, moisturize twice daily (even if you have oily skin). My hg foundation is MAC's Studio Fix Fluid in NW30, but recently I've been loving Revlon's PhotoReady in 006, I still don't have a final verdict on it, all I can say for now is your skin cannot have any dry skin patches, it will show, but I can say the same with MAC, so exfoliate please.

These girls better be taking notes! I've never tried microdermabrasion, why is it important to you?
apetitediva:  We all want an even complexion, besides drinking water and avoiding sugar, microdermabrasion is the next best way to clear it up. Microdermabrasion will help unclog pores and remove the surfaces accumulated dead skin cells. It'll also promote your surface skin cells to renew and increase collagen production. It's safer than chemical peels and a lot of people can't handle that.

Great information! Now I know why you have amazing skin! Do you have any advice for newbies in the beauty community?
apetitediva:  First off, makeup isn't necessary to be beautiful. Trust me I walk around w/out makeup some days and I'm still confident in my beauty. I'll be honest, reading blogs, watching youtube videos and qvc/hsn are great resources. I love shopping at Nordstrom & Sephora b/c of their lax return policy, so if a new product doesn't work for me, I can go back, explain my issue and a sales associate will help me pick up what's right. Don't ever be afraid to ask for help from a sales associate.

When did you become a make up junkie?
Sofia: I started becoming a makeup junkie around Sept of last year when I started watching makeup tuts on youtube...that started my addiction.

HAHA good old youtube! How did your collection grow and who did you start watching first on youtube?
Sofia: I went from a small caboodles train case to a vanity full of makeup!
well Id have to say aubrey [fafinetexx3] the first youtube tuts I saw were hers.

So what products do you find yourself into at the moment?
Sofia: I am really into blushes and brand in particular

Seriously "no brand in particular" so if I gave you $500 and said you can ONLY use it at one store where would you go?
Sofia: OK I lied!!! lol!! I would either spend it on mac or nyx products..both very good quality makeup I love..

I knew I'd get a brand out of you! Ok what is one beauty tip you can't live without.
Sofia: prime everything...esp with my skin...I have to prime my face, lips and eyes..I don't know what I would do without primer.

Very true.speaking of skin. how do you keep your skin so radiant?
Sofia: I wash it daily using st Ives products and I don't use makeup on a daily basis..I basically let my skin breathe all week and just wear makeup on the weekends.

So what would be your weekend look?
Sofia: I don't have a weekend look in particular I just pick a shirt and then go from there..I'm that type of girl who tries to match her eye makeup with her outfit...weird... I know!

Not weird at all! Is there any particular celebrity who's style you idolize?
Sofia: mmmm?? I really love Kelly Clarkson..her style is very casual and I am exactly a casual type of girl..I don't like getting all dressed up..comfy is best for me.

She's pretty laid back..jeans t-shirt kinda girl. Do you have any tips for the ladies who are just getting into makeup and fashion?
Sofia: spend wisely..when I first started on makeup..I just bought things to "collect" and not things I knew I was going to I have a bunch of makeup I don't use, just wasted that would be my #1 advice "spend wisely".

Great advice. Lastly what does the hubby think about the make up addiction?
Sofia: omg don't get me started on that he thinks I'm crazy, yet he still supports my addiction..he says it's because he loves me..he's a sweetheart.

Thanks Sofia!
