You guys know I love my beauty products, makeup especially! So when I recently came across this makeup line, I flipped out and now I just want to share it with everyone because I love it SO much!!! Maskcara was founded by Cara Brook, a popular beauty blogger, when she was looking to create a product that would enhance one’s beauty, not cover it up. Today I’m going to show you how to apply the IIID foundation which is what Maskcara is known for. We call this HACing (highlighting and contouring). And don’t worry, you’re going to be surprised by how easy it actually is!
Here is my “before” picture. I am lucky to have relatively nice, clear skin. I do however have redness and not much in the cheekbone department.
Do you like my excited face?? Haha. How cute is the compact??! The packaging is stunning, I love how you pick out whatever style compact you want and fill it with your custom colors!
I am all about this marble guys <3
This beautiful brush is all you need! The 30 Sec HAC brush will apply the foundation perfectly.
First I am applying the highlighter to my under eye areas, chin, jaw, and forehead. I am using a brighter shade (Aura) under my eyes and White Peach for the other areas. Next is my favorite part, the contour! I applied a darker contour shade (Stone) to my cheekbones, jawline, and top of forehead. After that I put Desert Sunset, which is my current favorite color, on the apples of my cheeks. Then I topped it off with the highlight shade Pearl.
Don’t worry, you’re going to look like you’re wearing war paint at this point!!! 🙂
Now I’m blending it all in with the Perfector sponge. This is similar to the Beauty Blender but I’m actually liking this way more. It’s denser and seems to work much better at blending everything in!
Lastly, I’m going back in and putting on Desert Sunset, which doubles as a lip color.
And here’s my after!!!! This only took 5 minutes, can you believe that??! I am loving this new makeup routine and I honestly can’t see myself going back to regular foundation! The face that I can have my entire makeup in just 1 beautiful compact blows my mind. These are cream based foundations so it might take a couple tries to get the hang of it but once you do, it’s life changing.
