My newest adventure. If you haven't heard already, I am now a Maskcara makeup artist!
I am so excited I couldn't hold it in any longer!! I will be sharing tips, tricks, tutorials, and everything else about one of my favorite make up brands. You can find it here on my blog, insta stories and my Facebook pages. So make sure to follow along.
I have tried several contour kits over the last few years, but this Maskcara IIID HAC Pack is hands down the best one I've used.
I am so happy I was introduced to the Maskcara makeup line and the IIID Foundation for so many reasons, but how about the fact that I can get my face make up done in 5 minutes or less. Say whaaa? Yes, no joking here! That’s foundation, concealer, bronzer, highlighter and blush in less than 5 minutes. Something I am so excited for, especially since becoming a mom, I need the quickest make up routine so I can snuggle my baby longer.
I mean, doesn't this makeup packaging just draw you in? I love that the palette comes in one small compact making it easy to take on the go! (magnetic, I might add!!!)
You can create your own custom color palette for any shade of skin. But I wanted to share which colors and products I am currently using and used for my before and after photo.

I just wanted to give you a little idea on how I typically apply the Maskcara IIID Foundation.
I typically start out using the Contour Foundation and contour with the wide end of the HAC brush under my cheekbone, around my hair line and under the jawbone line. Using that same side of the brush I usually create a small shadow on the sides of my nose using the same Contour Foundation.
Next I use the skinnier side of the Maskcara HAC brush and use the Highlighter. I create one large triangle under each eye, following my eye shape in a sweeping motion to my temples and done the outer sides of my nose. Next over my chin and in between the contoured lines created previously created under my cheekbone and jawbone. This is where it begins to look a little scary! Don't stress just yet :) I then start at the top of my nose, in between my eyebrows, to finish off my forehead with the Concealer.
After contouring my face (which is also becomes your overall foundation, I take my beauty blender, wet it first, then lightly tap my face with the sponge to blend all the lines together.
Using the same brush, (wide end) I lightly tap the blush onto my cheekbones. A little of the blush goes a long way! I learned that the hard way :)
Then the magic happens!! It is so important to remember to dampen the IIID Perfecter Sponge and gently tap your entire face to blend all the lines.
I finish off with the illuminator applying with my finger. I apply under my eye in the outer corner, bridge of my nose and anywhere else I feel like needs a little brighter glow!
Lastly, I set my face with the setting powder.
I don't do this every time, but if I am in a hurry, I apply, using my finger, the blush color on my lips for a fresh pink tone that stays on really well!
It is a little difficult to get a full idea on what I did just through text, so I wanted to share the video that I watched when learning how to use.
Here is a video that Cara herself did showing how easy it is to us!
