Speaking to People, the 26-year-old said, "It's really evolved so much. I feel like when I was younger and I started working, beauty was just the last thing on my mind." 

She also opened up about the impact beauty had on her belonging to an immigrant family. She shared, "Being in an immigrant family...it felt frivolous to me." The Havana singer added, "Now I'm like, 'No, it's actually just an expression of joy and what it means to be alive.' I'm obsessed with beauty now. It's just so fun."

The singer recalled how her mother, Sinuhe Cabello, served as an inspiration during her impressionable years. Her mother offered beauty advice and was always honest about it. Camila said, "She will be like, 'Your whole vibe is amazing, but you got to fix that part.' For her, it's always been [about how] looking your best really makes you feel more confident. It's not some frivolous, shallow thing." She added, "It makes you feel better for you. It's true."
