Thankfully, Maskcara’s iiiD foundation is literally the quickest and easiest makeup I’ve ever found! Are you ready for (ok, let’s be honest, totally in need of) a simplified routine?

I was super intimidated by highlighting and contouring at first, but thankfully, Maskcara makeup is fool-proof thanks to being blendable and buildable! Don’t believe me? Check it out below!


HIGHLIGHTING AND CONTOURING MADE SIMPLE!


WHAT DO I NEED TO GET STARTED? One of the most unique things about Maskcara make

up is that all of our compacts are customizable, so you can create the perfect palette for you!


Here’s the starter set that I often recommend as a base and then you can add from there! (Don’t worry, I will color match you to find your perfect shades).



HIGHLIGHT

This color should be lighter than your natural skin tone. The yellow turns creamy on the skin and gives you a “lit from within” glow! With the small end of the hac brush apply this shade to the bridge of the nose, beneath your eyes and down the side of the nose in a pie piece shape, between your brows, on the chin and along the jawline.


CONTOUR

This color should be deeper than your natural skin tone. It creates and accentuates the “shadows” on your face, giving dimension and a gorgeous sculpt to your face! Using the large end of the HAC brush apply the contour color round the edges of your face, down the neck, the side of your nose and beneath your cheekbones.


LIP + CHEEK

This rosy tone brings out your eyes, makes the face appear more youthful and warms your complexion. Apply this with a brush, sponge or fingertip to the apples of your cheeks and to the center of your lips.

ILLUMINATOR

Finish everything with this gorgeous shimmery cream! It gives the face a candlelit dewiness and perfects your complexion. Apply with fingertip to the top of your cheekbones, the bow of your lip and beneath the arch of your brow.

MAGNETIC (& REFILLABLE) COMPACT

Best news of the day, it comes FREE with your makeup!

30 SECOND HAC OR BUFFY BRUSH

Our brushes not only make application quick and easy thanks to being double-sided, but they also help ensure a flawless finish! They are super high-quality and each come with a one-year warranty! If you need more coverage, I recommend the Buffy Brush.



OTHER ITEMS I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT


PERFECTOR SPONGE

This Perfector Sponge is the softest & longest lasting makeup sponge I’ve come across. Oh and it’s cheaper too!! #winwin


BELLA BRONZER

CREAM bronzer is LIFE-CHANGING, y’all! Seriously, it blends to perfection and is buildable so you can use less or more depending on the glow you are trying to achieve or how tan you!


STAY SETTING SPRAY

I think having a good setting spray is essential to a long-lasting look! I use it as a primer before applying my makeup and after to set my look. I love that it comes in two options - No SPF or SPF 30!


VANILLA DUST SETTING POWDER

For those of you who like a more matte finish, this setting powder will be clutch! It’s translucent so it won’t cover up the gorgeous dimension you just added to your face by HACing, yet aids in keeping your makeup in place all day long!


WHY I LOVE MASKCARA PALETTES

Our refillable palette system eliminates any colors you don’t need, allows you to refill shade by shade, and organizes your routine all into one space. It also makes it easy to change up your look by swapping out colors at any time.


Palettes come customized with your choice of foundation, blush, illuminator, powders, and/or eyeshadows. Say goodbye to the days of buying whole palettes full of shades you don’t want or need.
