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.

This weekend was so fun, but exhausting! Family came to town to celebrate Peter and Morgan's big day. We stayed up late prepping, talking and enjoying our time together. Saturday morning was gorgeous and the perfect day for a wedding. The ceremony was held in a chapel at This is be Place Heritage Park and it was simply beautiful. One thing I wasn't expecting was tears streaming down my face when I saw Morgan in her dress when she walked down the isle. They are so perfect for each other, and I'm so happy for them to experience the joys that come from marriage.

I didn't capture many photos, but I'm going to share the gems that I happened to get. I just love weddings! I love seeing old friends, being reminded of my wedding day and dancing. I can never get enough of the dancing. Matthew asked me to dance because he knows how much of a romantic I am. It was such a good reminder of the love we have for each other and how much closer we've become since the day we were married. He means more to me now than he did on that day, which I never thought would be possible. We have been through so much together. We're parents now! I wouldn't choose to go through this life with anyone else. He was made for me. I'm so grateful for the little things he does to make me feel special. I am the luckiest girl in the world. 

Just a side note, Turner and I went to the park to play outside before the reception and it started raining the fattest drops of rain I have ever seen! Turner couldn't stop splashing in all of the puddles. I didn't get any pictures of the reception unfortunately. I was too busy stuffing my face with cake and dancing way too much. It was simple and beautiful. I couldn't be happier for Peter and Morgan!!!
