"No Makeup" Makeup with Maskcara Beauty

Lately I have been feeling overwhelmed with my schedule, or lack thereof. One of the things that picks me up every time is how quickly I can feel more ready with Maskcara makeup to take on whatever comes my way! During a Maskcara training webinar, Cara shared an analogy about hitting a WALL in your life and how you naturally want to wait for someone else to come give you a boost/help you over. She went on to say that we all need to be the HERO in our own lives. When you wait for some to solve your problems, or wait for a certain thing to happen to make it easier, your really just wasting time you could be climbing and overcoming. It really touched me and it was exactly what I needed to hear right now. 

I may not always remember everything, or be organized, or good at managing my time, etc; But I am learning from my mistakes and scaling walls without really realizing it. I CAN DO HARD THINGS. And so can YOU!!! Whether your momming, working, creating, struggling or all of the above. Please remember that you can overcome it. Even if it means asking for help. You can be your own Hero!!! 

Now I'm going to put some makeup on and conquer the rest of the hours of this day! I hope you enjoy this tutorial! I'm reallllyyyyy trying to post more regularly on here, because it is so therapeutic and fun for me. Let me know what other blog posts you want to see from me and I'll start planning it!

Love you all so much!! 

I'm an Independent Maskcara Artist!

Yesterday I did something I never thought I'd do. I became an Independent Maskcara Artist!!! I am so excited to announce this exciting news! I have been following Maskcara for what feels like forever, and have purchased her IIID Foundation. (It's amazing, by the way) I've wanted to become an artist since they announced it, but the timing just wasn't right until now. I have a neighbor who does it, and talking with her made me realize how passionate I am about the makeup and the company.

Maskcara Beauty is all about finding your inner beauty and enhancing it. I never brought up becoming an artist because I didn't think Matthew would be on board. When I brought it up last month, his response was the complete opposite! Hearing my excitement as I described the product and company to him, he was confident it was something I would be good at. He always believes in me. He's the best husband I could ever ask for. The only condition was that if I was going to do it, I needed to be ALL IN. We decided we're an ALL IN family. If we're going to do something, we're going to give it 100%. 

And this product. This company. THIS was something I could get behind! Like Cara, I strongly believe that women are more beautiful than they realize, inside and out, and I want to be a part of that movement. I want to help women find that beauty in potential in themselves that Maskcara Beauty products have given me. Stay tuned for lots of fun before and afters, and reviews on the amazing new products I now get to sample and then sell to all of you!

Maskcara Cosmetics: IIID Foundation Review
Maskcara Cosmetics IIID Foundation Review || ADOS

Okay, so I've been ranting and raving about this stuff since the day I opened it. However, I wanted to wait a good amount of time before giving this product a proper and honest review. When I tried out this makeup for the first time I didn't really have a concept of how much product to use. I was used to using so much liquid foundation and layering it to get the contour I wanted. I started to realize I could get amazing coverage using way less makeup.

I start with a primer/tinted moisturizer since it's winter and I have super dry skin. I fill in my brows and then I use makeup brushes to apply minimal amounts of the IIID Foundation to my face, starting with the contouring (a mixture of Stone and Shadow) and ending with highlighting (Sunlit). I use the liquid blush (Gem) on the apple of my cheeks and my lips. I finish with Illuminator (Pearl) on the tops of my cheekbones, brow bones, inner corners of my eyes, cupids bow, and chin. After I am basically GLOWING from this product, I apply a translucent setting powder with a fluffy kabuki brush to my whole face, followed by a dusting of bronzer along my contour work and lids. I line my eyes with the same powder used to fill my brows, curl my lashes, and apply mascara.

BAM! I'm done!

This routine takes me only 10 minutes! I cannot believe how much time this product has shaved off of my regular routine. Not only that, I don't find myself reapplying it later in the day. It looks natural and stays ALL DAY LONG. It hides all of my blemishes, dark spots caused by hormones, and dark circles from the lack of sleep in my third trimester. My skin has never looked better. I'm hooked for life!

My HAC Pack has taken the place of 5 other products and is the perfect on the go compact! Here are all the products I use every day! Find out where to find them by clicking the linked images below.

I am so glad that Cara created this mom friendly product. I can't wait to try some of the new colors they've created when I need to refill my pack! What are your favorite makeup products? Do you have a product you can't live without? I wanna know about it! Comment below with all of your faves!
