A Makeup Look with Maskcara Beauty

I have been using and loving Maskcara Beauty products for about the last year.  I have been wanting to bring you a tutorial with it, so I’m excited to finally share it with you!

The reason I love it so much is because of the colors and consistency.  The IIID foundation applies so smoothly, and the colors are my favorite.  I love the idea behind it that your foundation should work with the natural shadows of your face, rather than matting everything out, and then you have to try to add dimension back in.

Find the tutorial video HERE!

I begin with the highlight shade, but I know others that like to start with the contour, so it’s up to you.  I am using Aura for my main highlight, and Stone for my contour.  I use a little bit of Sunlit highlight as well. The highlight is applied under the eyes, top of nose, lower forehead, top of the cheekbone, chin, and upper lip.  The contour is applied under the cheekbone, on the sides of the nose, on the top of the forehead, and under the chin/jaw.  I used the 30 second HAC brush.  I love the creamy blush from Maskcara and I am using Baby Watermelon in this video.  I use it on my cheeks as well as my lips! The Honey illuminator adds just a bit of light to the top of the cheek bones and nose. still-shots-1-of-5

Maskcara also has some great eyeshadow shades!  I have been playing around with them and will be showing you more looks using them in the future.  For this one I used Sabrina, Stardust, Finn, and Cole.  To apply the shadow I used the eye shadow everything brush.still-shots-5-of-5

Day 5 Eliminate and Enhance: Contouring

Our last day! You made it to day 5.  How has it been going so far? I hope you have learned a new tip that has helped you embrace your natural beauty more!

For our last day, I want to walk you through how to enhance your facial features.  Pair this with the eyes from day 3 and you are ready for any occasion!

1. Start by using a foundation/concealer/powder, or any combination of the three.  Level out any redness, dark circles, or blemishes.

2. Use a light powder, highlight, or light eyeshadow and gently sweep over your upper cheekbones and the top of your nose from the bridge to the tip.

3. Working in a line from your upper ear to the corner of your mouth, make small circles with a bronzing powder.  I like to use a powder with a matte finish.  Stop on your lower cheek.

4. Use the bronzing powder to lightly shadow the sides of your nose and the top of your forehead.  Blend everything together with a large powder brush and translucent powder.

5. Apply blush from the center of your cheek up toward your ear.

6. Add a fun lip and you are set!
