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.

Friday Favorites!

This last month I started using some game changing products, and the list of favorites was getting so long I felt the need to share it with all of you! All of the product images below are linked to where you can purchase them. So let's jump right into it, shall we?

Mē Smooth Hair Reduction Device

I have wanted to get laser hair removal for a while now. Well, did you know you could do it yourself at home? Matthew got me this device for Christmas, you may have heard me talking about it on my Insta story, and I was SUPER skeptical that it could actually get the job done. I started on/am currently treating my underarms and bikini area. I'm over half way done with the treatments and I can totally notice a difference! Especially on my bikini area. TMI, but I have thick hair and I was getting so many painful ingrown hairs it was ridiculous. This is CHANGING MY LIFE. I can't wait to give a full review after I'm done with all of the treatments. If you want to laser the private parts of your body for a fraction of the cost. This is the way to do it. 

Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant

I have good friends who recommend the best products and this one as well as the next one were recommended by my BFF, Kelsie. You guys, the ingrown/thick hair problem also applies to my underarms which I feel like makes them very easily irritated. Off and on since I can remember I've had reactions to deodorant. I never really switched brands because it only happened every once in a while. Well, after having rashes for a little over a month I stopped using my deodorant and switched to my husbands. That's when Kelsie recommend this dry spray deodorant. I've been using it for a couple weeks now and I'm OBSESSED. It feels like I'm spraying air on my pits because this stuff drys instantly. It smells great and lasts up to 48 hours! Go get some for yourself. Right now. 

Soap Brows

Kelsie also opened my eyes to the magic that is Soap Brows. I mean, just look at her brows first. Then, go watch this video to see it in action! Isn't that incredible??? I have sparseness just like her and it does wonders for me! I've been using a pink soap, and so I can only imagine what it's going to look like when I get some clear soap

Little Remedies Saline Drops

If you have been following my Instagram saga, then you already know we've been hit with a constant wave of illness in our home. Specifically sinuses and colds. These drops have done wonders for clearing out that stubborn mucus in  my little ones nostrils. They hate getting the drops, but it has made the biggest difference in getting them back to their healthy, happy selves! 

Lemi-Shine

Okay, so a couple months ago our dishes started looking a little foggy. I looked up a DIY rinse aid on Pinterest and thought I would give it a try. Well, something went horribly wrong and for a whole month we had this nasty white film on everything. Even the dishwasher. I felt awful and tried everything I could to flush the system. It was looking better but still had a foggy look to it. That's when I saw this product on my friend Kalie's favorites list on Instagram, and I HAD to give it a try. After the first wash, the dishwasher looked brand new!!! I couldn't believe it! Our dishes have never looked this clean. EVER. Matthew is obsessed with how clean our glassware is. SO worth the investment for us.

Moana Soundtrack

I know, totally cliche, but I don't even care. Turner and I are OBSESSED with this movie and all of it's music. The soundtrack has been on repeat every time we get in the car, or if there's a lull in our day. It's the perfect pick me up! You're welcome. ;)

That's it for today! If you try them out, let me know what you think! What products are your tried and true favorites right now? Leave a comment with them below! Thanks for reading, loves!
