It’s been said that successful women are superheroes…..they’d have to be in order to manage the madness that accompanies success….oh wait, I think that’s the sleep deprivation talking. So, what is a woman to do when she wants to look and feel “put together” but also craves the extra 15 minutes of sleep or ‘sanity in silence’ as busy moms might call it? I have that answer for you, and it’s going to change your life, preserve your budget and make you look and feel like the Wonder Woman that you totally are.
I know I had you at ‘sanity in silence,’ but what if you’re the person in your circle of girlfriends who kissed a daily makeup routine goodbye years ago because it was too complicated to apply in a way that wasn’t drag queen chic? Or you’ve always been the lipgloss girl who didn’t fuss with an hour in front of the mirror?
Maskcara makeup is the newest solution to cure all complicated morning routines and smokey-eye Pinterest tutorial fails. This makeup was designed to provide a gorgeous look in very little time—and for very little money. Let’s start with a clean slate or clean face and show you just how fabulous this makeup is and how it will change your life.
What do you need to HAC?
In Maskcara world, we’ve embraced something called the HAC Pack. It sounds super technical, perhaps a superhero utility belt of some kind or something that’s possibly illegal, right? Well, it’s none of those things (phew!). It’s actually the Maskcara customizable compact that includes Highlight, Contour, Blush and Illuminator. You can do all of this with just ONE double ended 30 Second HAC brush and a IIID Perfector, completing the perfect kit.
The best part about this system is each tin is only $14!
Highlights are just like they sound in that they are meant to bring out your sun-kissed glow. A helpful hint when choosing a color: 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 your 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 eyebrows, on the chin and along the jawline.
Contours are so fantastic! They create additional dimension to your face by accentuating the curves and give you a sculpted look. This color should be deeper than your natural skin tone. Using the large end of the HAC brush, apply the contour color around the edges of your face, down the neck, the side of your nose and beneath your cheekbones.
Lip + Cheek
It’s crazy how many women are afraid of wearing blush. They’re worried it will make them look too pink, so they don’t wear it. Maskcara’s blush—aka Lip + Cheek Color—is a magical addition and a must-have to your makeup routine. The rosy tone brings out your eyes, makes the face appear more youthful (YAY!) and warms your complexion. To apply, use a brush, sponge or fingertip and apply to the apples of your cheeks and to the center of your lips.
The Illuminator is the finishing touch! This is a gorgeous cream that gives your face a soft look and improves your complexion. To apply, use your fingertip and apply to the top of your cheekbones, the bow of your lip and beneath the arch of your brow.
Remember how I’ve promised that Maskcara will save time AND money, thus allowing you more sleep and/or ‘sanity silence’? Truth be told, this is accomplished by having a compact for your HAC Pack to be stored in. On average, we spend 40% of our makeup application time opening and closing containers and searching through palettes for colors we want. And it’s all fun and games until the eye shadow color we want goes flying off the counter, shatters and ruins a day that’s hardly started. So, avert this crisis and save time with these amazing compacts. Trust me. They rock. We also have double-layered compacts that are perfect for keeping creams separate from powders. Once you see the color and pattern selections for the compacts, you will be sold. I love them and know you will too!
Brushes and Tools
Behind every great makeup artist is a drawer full of awesome brushes. Makeup brushes are essential to achieving a flawless, blended look. And what’s even better is that Maskcara’s brushes are the softest brushes you’ll ever touch. There are several advantages of these brushes over the competition. Because they are double-ended, it means you have two brushes in your hand at once for applying and blending. The IIID Perfector brush is much denser, so it blends your makeup instead of removing it. They are also a great space-saver with a double-end. If your makeup counter is anything like mine, any space saving is a total bonus.
I think I’m among friends when I admit that eye shadow can either be super addicting or super intimidating. In a split second it can be the difference between perfection and Pinterest-tutorial-gone-bad with one swipe of the brush. Maskcara’s eye shadows are highly pigmented and the most blendable eye shadows on the market.
They are perfectly sized to be half the length of the cream foundation tins, so all your tins fit into any of our palettes. The combinations and layouts are endless, which means it’s all about YOU and what you need in your HAC Pack. Total win, right?
Tres Leches Skin Care Line
We all know that beautiful, flawless makeup comes from a great skincare routine, but let's be real here... who has time for a whole slew of products?! I know that if something takes me more than 3-5 minutes before bed, it won't happen.
I mean, of course we are Wonder Women, but we get tired. Amiright?! When it's bedtime, it's bedtime, but I pay for that when I go to put makeup on the next day, so let me share with you the worlds most amazing and fastest night time skincare system!
Tres Leches is a 3 step system that is both fast and gentle on your skin. It is perfect for all skin types and does an amazing job at balancing out some of the most common skin issues.
Milk in its original state has no effect on the skin. However, the milk bases utilizes the special lactic and contains a wealth of highly active skin rejuvenating substances in naturally balanced proportions. This lactic acid cream based cleanser will:
- Gently clean off bacteria without stripping or irritating the skin
- Exfoliate dead skin cells promoting healthy skin cell turnover
- Provide moisture
- Retain the natural acid and lipid protective cover of the skin
- Give the skin elasticity
Washing the skin with moderately or highly alkaline soap or detergents is one of the most common mistakes made that strips away the acid mantle.
Milk Toner is used to tone and gently exfoliate while maintaining delicate skin pH. The aloe vera component is soothing to minor skin irritations while the witch hazel is an effective astringent to close pores and facilitate blood flow in the skin. The milk base component adds hydrating effects in the skin while the lactic acid provides gentle exfoliation. Vitamins and minerals help keep the skin smooth, healthy, and even.
Milk creme contains 16% natural milk components and moisturizes the driest of skins, leaving you with a youthful glow. With its combination of the alpha-hydroxy lactic acid and vitamins A and E, it gently penetrates the skin surface and helps exfoliate and release dead skin cells. This helps promote healthy skin cell turnover and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. It is non-comedogenic and absorbs into the skin quickly without a lingering greasy feeling. Milk creme is alcohol free and contains allantoin, jojoba oil, and rhodopsin oil, which are all natural and beneficial to the skin.
A's to your Q's
Could the brushes I currently have be used?
Yep! You can use any brush you want to apply it. I've even seen people do it with their fingers. BUT, once you touch our brushes, you'll want them. Don't say I didn't warn you!
At times I am a bit more tan then I currently am, is it a better deal price wise to get two base colors now instead of one now and one when I'm darker?
There isn't a price break on the colors when you buy more, but you do get free compacts depending on how many tins you buy at once. So, buy what you need now, and then it's pretty inexpensive later to add additional colors as you need them. You might actually be surprised to know you may not need them. Can we say amazing?! Not having to buy 3 different shades of foundation for different times of year?!
Bundles. Is it more cost effective to bundle or buy individually?
There isn't really a "bundle" per se. But if you buy 4 tins (any combination of tins!), you get a free quad compact. 10 tins gets you a free mini double decker compact and 16 tins gets you a free double decker compact.
Is Maskcara good for oily or combination skin?
Yes. There are some different techniques to get the most out of it, but it's seriously the best foundation on the market for any skin type.
Are there different colors/designs for the palettes?
Currently Maskcara offers five color/pattern choices for the compacts.
How long do the tins last?
It's a bit variable depending on the person based on how much coverage you typically like, but in general, highlight colors last 3-4 months, contour colors about 3-6 months, lip & cheek colors about 6-9 months, and illuminator lasts about 12 months.
Which single is the “foundation”?
Because these don't work like a traditional foundation, we shy away from calling it a foundation color, because that would suggest it goes all over your face, and none of them do - but usually when people ask this question, they are actually referring to the Highlight single, because it covers more of your face than the other singles.
How much coverage does IIID Foundation provide?
As much as you like or need! It's a buildable coverage which means you can apply it in layers on top of itself for more coverage and it won't remove the layers beneath.
What does HAC stand for?
Highlight and Contour
What is a HAC pack?
The HAC pack refers to the quad compact which holds 4 of the IIID foundation tins; highlight, contour, lip & cheek, and illuminator combined with the 30 Second HAC brush. It's by far the best way to get started using Maskcara's IIID Foundation system.
Interested in the Artist Opportunity?
Maskcara is redefining the makeup routine, and I want you to join my team of Artists. We believe that makeup should enhance a beautiful face, not cover it up. We believe that women are more beautiful (inside and out) than they give themselves credit for. We are looking for women to join us on our mission to change that.
You'll be able to grow your business and we'll be here to help. We offer you the training and support to get started and increase your reach.
I've spent the last 9 years of my life learning the hard way how to run a profitable portrait photography business and began sharing my knowledge "officially" in 2016, but really I'd been sharing long before that. I have endless experience in design, organization, marketing, finance, and the list goes on... but none of that stuff matters quite as much to me as seeing other women follow in my same footsteps of success.
Nothing hits my heart quite like meeting a woman who is beyond capable of building a business and life she loves, who doesn't believe it!
Not only am I on a mission to change how women feel about themselves on the outside with Maskcara, but I am determined to help them find inner confidence and take control of their lives through owning a business... because I know that is precisely what helped me find my own confidence.
Are you ready to do this?
Perfect! So here's the deal... there are a LOT of other artists you could choose from to join this journey with... and I'm totally honored and humbled you're considering me. But it's super important to me that not only are you a fit for this business and it's a fit for you, but also that you will mesh well with those on my team and be ready for it. I'm about full honesty and transparency and I will NEVER recommend this business for someone it's not right for. But in order for me to do that, I have an application process for my leaders.
