I’m pretty lucky in the way that my skin has been pretty clear most of my life. I never really had any pimples when I was a teenager and that has mostly continued throughout adulthood. For this reason, I’ve never really been a big make up girl. I really only wear the basics which for me is loose powder, a little under eye concealer, liquid eyeliner, a touch of blush, and mascara. I’m now pushing into my mid thirties and I’ve started to notice a change in my skin. I never used to be able to see the pores on my face and now I definitely can, and I’m starting to get those annoying crow’s feet wrinkles around my eyes and smile lines around my mouth and nose. Age is not something I’ve been a fan of seeing creep up on me in the mirror. I realized I needed to transition to something a little more “adult” in the make up department.
I was introduced to MaskCara Makeup by Jessica, who has been helping others like me find their way in the cream makeup world. She had me send her some close up photos of my face so she could pick the colors I would need to get started. She then sent me some samples and I gotta be honest, I was a little intimidated at everything sitting on the counter in front of me. It seemed like a lot of makeup but I did a FaceTime call with Jessica and she walked me through every step. She helped me to feel confident in the application, and was really patient as I was learning.
Before MaskCara Makeup application
MaskCara makeup is a cream based makeup designed to make your skin look flawless. I was totally skeptical about wearing makeup on my face like this because I never had before. I thought creamy makeup would feel heavy on my skin but I was totally wrong! It makes my skin glow and honestly I feel like it makes my look younger. I have learned how to use different colors as a concealer, for contouring, and for color. The number one product I think everyone needs is the 30 Second HAC Brush.
I use it for my entire makeup routine. The way it blend in the colors is magical. When I first put on the blush color I thought I looked like a clown until I used the HAC Brush to blend it into my skin. I can’t believe how well it works and I seriously love it so much! I also love the Stay Out There Setting Spray because it smells amazing! It reminds me of sitting on the beach with the smell of the ocean in the air. It’s designed to help your makeup stay looking fresh all day long.
I have the Mini Double Decker Marble Compact and I love it. I’m actually on vacation right now and it is amazing having all my makeup in one place. I don’t have to bring 4 separate eyeshadows, bronzer, blush and my loose powder because it is already all together! It’s stacked so you can have all your cream based makeup on one level, and your eyeshadows and bronzer on another.
After MaskCara Makeup application: Flawless Skin.
I was worried the makeup application process would take a lot longer than my typical routine, but it hasn’t at all! Now that I have had more practice putting the makeup on, I can do it pretty quick and be out the door looking fresh and beautiful in no time. I have been so impressed with this makeup and am totally going to be a user for life. Jessica made the whole process so much easier for me and I am so excited to share that we are teaming up on a GIVEAWAY for you!
