  1. To prep Camila's skin, Allan used L'Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Lock Mattifying Primer. Then, for her complexion he applied L'Oréal ParisInfallible Pro-Glow Foundation with the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender.
  2. For a refreshed looked, Allan applied the lightest shade of the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Concealing and Contour Kit under her eyes and around her nose.
  3. Next, Allan dusted the L'Oréal Paris Visible Lift Radiance Cheek Duo in Romantic in Rose across the apples of Camila's cheeks.
  4. To add extra luminosity, Allan applied *NEW L'Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer in Light above Camila’s cheekbones and down the bridge of her nose. He then layered *NEW L'Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glow Nude Palette in Sunkissed on top of the Glotion.
  5. Then to keep Camila’s eye neutral, Allan shaped them with the cream, brown and taupe shades of the L’Oréal Paris La Palette Nude and a little highlight in the inner corners of her eyes.
  6. For extremely elongated lashes, Allan used the dual-sided *NEW L'Oréal Paris Voluminous X-Fiber Mascara on Camila’s top lashes. First, he applied one coat of the black primer and followed with two coats of the fiber-infused mascara.
  7. For Camila's lips, Allan lightly lined with L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lip Liner in Mattes It and then applied L'Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss in Bare Attraction. Finally, for extra shine, Allan topped off the look with L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Polished Tango.
  • Camila Cabello Hair Stylist: Dimitris Giannetos for L’Oreal Paris.
  • Inspiration: “For Camila’s Latin Grammy look, I wanted to give her a very beautiful low braided ponytail because her dress is dreamy and romantic. I gave the braid, an edgy yet modern vibe!”

  1. To prep Camila’s hair, Dimitris sprayed  L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Air Dry It Wave Swept Spray on her damp hair at the roots. On the ends Dimitris applied a couple of pumps of  L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Boost It Volume Inject Mousse for extra volume and texture.
  2. Then, Dimitris sprayed Camila’s hair with L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Sleek It Iron Straight Heatspray to protect her hair from the heat and blow-dried her hair. Using a 1¼” curling iron, Dimitris curled her hair in different directions to create loose waves.
  3. To keep the curls in place, Dimitris sprayed his all-time favorite hairspray, L’Oréal Paris Elnett Extra Strong Hold Satin Hairspray all over and tousled the hair.
  4. Next, he pulled her hair in a low ponytail and left out hair around Camila’s hairline.
  5. Dimitris secured the hair with an elastic. He then took a small strand of hair and wrapped it around the elastic band.
  6. To create the braid, Dimitris back combed the ponytail and split it into three parts. He braided backwards throughout the end and secured it with a clear small elastic band.
  7. To complete the look, Dimitris applied a couple of drops of the new L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Treatment to give her a natural shine.
  • Sofia Carson Hair Stylist: Caile Noble for Dove Hair
  • Inspiration: “The top of Sofia's dress has feathers so we immediately agreed, up for the hair! I wanted the style to have a sense of elegance and edge so I created a look that portrayed that contradiction.”

  1. To start, Noble massaged Dove Style+Care Curls Defining Mousse into her hair from roots to mid shaft to help define her side part and give the hair more control while styling.
  2. After drying the hair, he used his Harry Josh Pro Tools Flat Iron on low heat, only from roots to the mid shaft. According to Caile, it's gentle enough so it doesn’t damage the hair, and gave her the added straightness he wanted to achieve the sleekness from roots to mid shaft.
  3. Next, Caile brushed her hair into a sleek, low ponytail and simultaneously sprayed Dove Style+Care Flexible Hold Hairspray. A workable spray is key when wanting the hair to hold in place while preventing any buildup or flaking!
  4. Then, the hair stylist applied Dove Refresh+Care Volume & Fullness Dry Shampoo to the hair to continue building texture and give her ponytail some bounce.
  5. He continued by braiding a few pieces of the ponytail and twisting the remaining hair into place, while pinning it to create a messy low bun.
  6. Noble finished Sofia's look with Dove Style+Care Extra Hold Hairspray to ensure the style has hold and longevity throughout the night!
