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

Loose Waves Tutorial

OK! This video has been a long time coming.  Even before I wanted to blog, I thought about making it! I used to spend hours teaching all my clients and friends how to curl with a flat iron.  This is by far my favorite way to curl for a number of reasons.  First, my curls just last way longer.  Ever since I became best friends with dry shampoo, I have been able to only wash my hair a couple times a week (the thought of it used to gross me out, but now I’m proud haha) think of all the time and damage I save my poor hair! Get this, I never redo my curls!  With a flat iron they last me four days easy.  When I curl my hair with a curling iron, I’m lucky to get two days.  Disclaimer: I do sleep with my hair above my head, draped over my pillow if that makes sense.  So, it doesn’t get smashed while I sleep, which probably helps!

Second, I can curl faster!  I’m just going to be honest and tell you it will take a LOT of practice and probably be pretty frustrating to learn.  It will click one day, though, and all of the sudden you will be a curling machine! I can usually do my whole head in less than ten minutes.  That’s a win for me! Takes me 30-45 with a curling iron.

Third, I only have to bring one thing on trips with me! Ha ok, that’s mostly me being lazy. It is nice, though!

Fourth, it is customizable.  If you want tighter curls, twist the iron more.  If you want them looser, twist less.  You can curl toward your face, away from your face, in your face, on top of your face….you get the idea 🙂  I used my iron for clients that just wanted loose waves, as well as my brides that wanted tight curls to last all day!

Fifth, I just like it.

I also really like the two products I use in the video! I honestly don’t think I could live without Smooth and Seal.  I’m not even sure how it is so great, but it is!  It’s basically a light spray that transforms your hair from dull to shiny, soft, and beautiful. It doesn’t have any hold to it, so it won’t help your curls stay in, but it will help your hair stay frizz free.  It also won’t protect your hair against heat damage (I have some other magical products that will, though, so I’ll get to work on a post about that)  Its awesome, I use it everyday no matter what I’m doing!   The second product is my favorite hairspray.  Its by Pravana and I love it because it doesn’t build up on my hair, but has great hold!

So! If you want to watch the tutorial, you can find it HERE

Let me know if you have any questions or if there is something you would like to see from me in the future!

Have a wonderful weekend!
