Can you believe it’s Spring already? Winter always seems as if it will never end, and then one day, the grass is getting green again! After months of darkness and cold, the warm sun and blooming flowers are such a welcome sight. It seems that the whole world is ready for bright colors again after the dark months of winter. We exchange our dark, heavy coats for light, bright cardigans and light jackets; so why would we continue to wear our dark winter makeup? Let’s talk Spring makeup trends!
Have you ever wished you knew how to do a more dramatic eye look for a night out on the town? I know I have. Just the term, ‘Smokey Eye’ used to intimidate the heck out of me! I thought it would be super complicated to learn how to do a smokey eye look, and so I never even tried. Now, I’m here to break down this eyeshadow look for you! So you can feel confident and never again be intimidated by the words, “Smokey Eye”!
Wondering how to get your own custom Maskcara color match? Let me break it down for you! But first, how many times have you gone into the makeup aisles and looked at the different brands of foundation and felt overwhelmed by the choices? Long-lasting, full coverage, natural coverage, liquid, powder, matte, dewy…it’s enough to make your head spin! And then, when you finally figure out what color and formula you like, and you need to re-purchase, the makeup company has inevitably re-formulated your choice and changed the name! *insert face-palm emoji here* hahaha!
Maskcara is all about making your life easier. One of the ways we do that is with our artist program. It’s my job as your artist to keep track of what colors look best on you, help you choose what coverage you like, find the best application technique for your skin, and generally be your makeup assistant in your back pocket! It’s a pretty awesome job.
Brows. Eyebrows, that is. Everyone has them and everyone wants perfect brows! Shaping and filling in your eyebrows can be intimidating. But it doesn’t need to be! If you were a teen/young adult in the 1990’s you probably overplucked your eyebrows, right? And now that fuller brows are popular, you are wondering how to get that look. If you are like me, you didn’t know anything about brows or tweezing them in the 1990’s so you missed that fashion misstep. Whew! Haha! Seriously, though, a big key to my brows being so full is related to the fact that I didn’t start tweezing them until a few years ago.
Did you know that your favorite pricey mascara likely has a cheaper, drugstore duplicate? Here’s how I found my favorite drugstore mascara dupe!
A few years ago, I started experimenting with different mascaras. I’d faithfully used the L’Oreal Voluminous mascara for years and years. I liked it ok, but I was curious if there was another type and brand out there that would give me a bit more definition in my lashes, help them to look longer, and more full.
Here’s my disclaimer–I naturally have long, curly eyelashes. Don’t hate me. lol. My issue has always been that my lashes are long, but they also turn blonde at the tips. This means that I can’t go without mascara without looking very different! I know I’m not the only one who struggles with this, I’m sure.
I used to be afraid of makeup and now I love it. Maskcara Beauty Independent Artist, mom to 5 busy (& hungry) boys, and wife to one handsome husband. Loving life in the Midwest and only occasionally missing the sun and heat of the Desert Southwest.
