Out With the Old + in With the New

Okay, I have always wanted to do a comparison of my old makeup routine to my new one and I finally gave it a shot! The results were even better than I had expected and I found myself falling in love with Maskcara all over again! I mean, just check out this before and after...

Now, the difference isn't super drastic because I was highlighting and contouring already with my old routine, BUT it took a lot of different products and lots of powders.

In the photo on the right are the products I use every single day. It's all in one compact so I don't need to dig through my makeup bag anymore. Not to mention it's so pretty to look at!!! *all the heart eyes emoji* My brushes are high quality, I don't lose any bristles on my face while applying. They're all double sided and double functional. Everything in this photo is a professional, high quality product that has been thoughtfully designed by an experienced makeup artist. It hydrates my skin, doesn't make me break out, blends effortlessly and looks natural on my skin! Plus, my setting spray has 30 SPF which was a step my previous routine was missing. My husband couldn't believe the difference when I made the switch! I have a natural, dewy glow at all times, and I wouldn't want it any other way! This definitely affirmed my love for these products and I don't ever plan on going back to my old routine!!

The picture to the left is all the products I used to use before I started using Maskcara, along with a collection of super cheap makeup brushes I had already thrown in the trash. Haha! Here's the thing. These products are all drugstore, cheap products. For the most part they were working for me, but I didn't realize how terrible these foundations and powders were for my dry skin. The  foundation was too orange for my skin and the products were near impossible to blend once they were applied to my face. It made my skin look dull instead of bright and awake. My face immediately felt tight after I finished applying everything. These products were the cheapest things on the market, and the way it wore throughout the day made that obvious. I just wish I would have switched over completely years and years ago.

Turner's DINO-MITE 2nd Birthday Party
Turner's DINO-MITE 2nd Birthday Party

Immediately after New Year’s Day my mind went into Turner birthday mode. I was rapidly trying to shop for gifts and come up with party ideas. Luckily I had already come up with a new design for his big boy room remodel in the basement, and that gave me a head start.  The inspiration was dinosaur themed with modern black, white, and lime throughout.

I searched for some simple ideas on Pinterest, and then I started buying/DIY-ing. I made the banners, cake topper letters, a tiny party hat for a dinosaur, the dino skull poster (which I plan on framing to hang in Turner’s new room), spray painted some dinos, designed and printed the table signs, baked the cookies and the cake.

I borrowed serve ware from my mom and sister-in-law, which held all of the delicious party snacks and drink. I snapped some quick photos of the table before too many guests arrived, but I forgot to take more after my mother-in-law arrived with the yogurt dipped pretzels (aka: dino bones to go on top of the muddy buddy dirt) so just pretend they’re there, okay? ;)

Turner was so thrilled with all of the friends and family that had come to see him. It was adorable! He could barely contain all of his excitement! He loved opening presents and blowing out the candles on his cake. The most rewarding thing to see after putting it all together was the joy in that little boy’s face. I was so glad I was in the moment to enjoy it with him. I only wish he would have held still long enough for me to capture just a few more photos of his little face.

I can’t believe I gave birth to this now little person. I love him more every day and I wouldn’t change a thing about him! He’s going to be the best big brother ever. Grey is going to love this goofy little dude. 

I hope you enjoyed looking at the photos from our celebration! Would you guys be interested in any printables I created? Let me know!
