Camila Cabello is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable faces in music today. The former member of pop group Fifth Harmony, had her first solo album debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and hit gold with her hit single “Havana.” Now she’s venturing into the world of cosmetics with the launch of her makeup collection with L’Oreal Paris. The Cuban-American singer collaborated closely with L’Oreal to release a 14-piece limited-edition collection inspired by her birthplace, Havana, Cuba. This is a big moment for Cabello and for those looking for a cosmetic collection that represents an identity beyond just makeup.
Camilia Cabello signed on as L’Oreal Paris’s global spokesperson back in 2017.

Cabello’s hit song “Havana” is the inspiration of the makeup line. Much of the design is themed after the city. The 14 piece set includes liquid bronzer, brow pens, lip gloss, eye shadow and a felt tip eyeliner, available in different shades to suit various skin tones.
Cabello and L’Oreal wanted the makeup line to compliment various skin tones.

“I am extremely proud and excited about the Havana collection,” Cabello said in a press release. “I wanted to create products that not only I would personally wear, but that would work well across various skin tones. For me, looking and feeling my best helps fuel my confidence and I hope to inspire other people to feel the same.”
In an interview about her makeup collection, Cabello was asked about what Latina icons inspired her.
@Camila_Cabello is the best example of a person that anyone can have. Left her native country and came to a strange country with her mother without even speaking the language, suffered a lot for being latina and today inspires thousands of people in the world. I’m so proud of her pic.twitter.com/RGQvujnvJG

“My biggest Latina beauty icon is definitely my Mom. And my grandma, and after that my sister, and after that, Penelope Cruz.” Cabello told Elle Magazine. “My mom is the perfect example of somebody that doesn’t really like wearing a lot of makeup. She puts on mascara, she puts on lip gloss, and how she looks on the outside doesn’t really determine who she is as a person. Who she is inside is what makes her radiate beauty and strength and confidence.”
One of the best parts about the new collection: It ranges in price from $10 to $15!
