Since high school I have been using tons of makeup brands. I MEAN TONS. I have a little tote full of three or four types of foundation from maximum coverage to just the wake up and go CC cream that added that tint to your face.
However, I wanted to use JUST ONE makeup brand. I have tried so many I never really had one I was tied to. I would use bareminerals on a daily basis over the next few years because that was a popular brand every one seemed to love. I did too until I met Cara.
Can we just use all the heart eye emojis for this lovely woman!? When Cara was first just doing tutorials on makeup I started following along, soaking up everything I could to learn how to HAC it in the makeup world and replicate tutorials on myself.
I loved learning from her tutorials because she was a celebrity makeup artist and shares everything moms like me wanted to learn all on her blog! Ladies, she spills all the beans and shares every secret to help women be more successful in feeling confident with their makeup skills.
The biggest change in makeup came when I contacted her over two years ago asking her to color match me! I fell in love. Since she came out with IIID Foundation this is all I have used. It is light enough to feel like you are not wearing anything but has the most gorgeous and dramatic finished look.
She refers to this as HAC (Highlighting And Contouring).
When creating HAC she did so in order to let women of all ages be able to accentuate the areas of that face you love and feel beautiful in your own skin without having to cake on the makeup and hide.
With that being said, it is important to note that this makeup can provide a full coverage look if you apply more layers, almost like you would airbrush layers. So for those wedding full coverage look, you can definitely do so. However, it is the perfect 5 minute routine for an everyday look when you don’t have a lot of time and still want to feel like you have a completed look.
I am a huge supporter of small businesses making a name for themselves and reaching for the stars. this is why I was so thrilled to hear of Cara creating her line of IIID Foundation, which walks you through the most simple way of highlighting and contouring EVER.
So for my birthday I bought her line of makeup. It took me 9-10 months before I had to replace the Highlight Foundation! 9-10 MONTHS ladies!!! I use a small amount (which goes a long way!) I was sold. Especially because I bought it once and did not have to keep replacing it when I ran out!
The. Best. Day. Ever.
Here are my before and afters when using her makeup line. I can say I feel very comfortable without makeup as I have gotten older and have learned to embrace being without makeup but definitely LOVE wearing it when it looks so natural! Hah well I hope it looks natural!!
What impressed me even more was when Cara decided to open up her business even more. She now runs a company so women and moms like myself had the incredible opportunity to join and be apart of. I am so thrilled to be apart of this amazing journey beginning! I am 1 of 400 women who have the opportunity to spread the word about Maskcara and why we are so passionate about it. It has been so fun to use this makeup line as a Hairstylist on clients. Allowing friends to leave with a little makeup always makes me feel like I finished the look completely.
HERE is my Facebook group where I teach tips and trick on how to apply this makeup in two minutes! I will let you in on a little secret…..I am left handed and put the makeup on right handed because I was holding my teething baby. Also there is no sound as of right now, so you can try and turn it up but nothing will play haha (mom fail!) But it will give you an idea of how easy the brushes make it to apply to the face because of their well designed angles.
Blush and Lip: Desert Sunset
Update: I found My PERFECT SHADES!
The colors I used:
Highlight: White Peach
Blush and Lip: Black Cherry
I have always been super impressed with the no makeup look and love that I can take 5 minutes out of my morning to get ready! With three kids on the move this has been my makeup dream come true. I keep the makeup palette in my purse and apply it in the car if i forgot to get ready. (Which lets be honest happens a lot more than i would like to admit!)
Also, a side note is that because of this small compact of everything you need is right there forget about your other makeup…..Hah but really forget about the rest. I have completely minimized the amount of makeup I pack on the go now.
So if you are a busy mom or just constantly on the go and need to have your go-to makeup, check out the before and afters on the site or go to my shop here and you can learn more about Cara and her amazing journey as a mom building this incredible business.

If you have always bought from Maskcara and love it, you can continue to do so, no problem. If you love the product but are not sure what color is right for you since they have updated shades, then you have the opportunity to try it in person for a free color match with me (or any artist near you). And if you love it, and love helping women feel beautiful like I do, then there is an opportunity to BECOME AN ARTIST and GET PAID to do it. The best part is you do not have to be a makeup artist to do this.
