I’m an Allure subscriber and I love your blog so I voted for you. I’ve watched your video on highlighting and contouring several times and can’t thank you enough for taking the time to do that. You’ve made me look better so again I say thanks!

    Nicely done! I checked out the challenges every week and voted for you each time because 1) your blog is brilliant and 2) your efforts were head and shoulders above the rest (and some of your competitors were pretty great so again nicely done). I have been enjoying your blog since I found it almost 6 months ago. Completely revamped how I do my makeup and my husband is a big fan of my new skills. Thanks so much and I am so happy you won, though not at all surprised.

I can’t wait to see what you post next. You are professional & yet easy to relate to. When I first saw your makeovers I thought they reminded me of Kevin Aucoin. I used to study that Making Faces book and honestly don’t think anyone has come near his style in the past 10 years – until I found your blog! Keep up the awesome work!

    Yay!!! You totally deserve it! Your blog is so inspirational, not just about looking beautiful, but feeling beautiful inside and out at any age. The way you describe the features of your friends, family and clients makes me wish you were my best friend because I think you could cheer up anyone in a moment of doubt. I love how you talked about your mom’s eyes in her makeover post. I wish you so much happiness because I know you bring it to others yourself. I voted for you as often as I could and I’m thrilled you won, but you would have been a winner no matter what.

    Longtime reader, first time posting.
    Wow, Cara! I am so happy for you. You totally deserve it! You are such a genuine, kind, talented individual! When I see the work you do when you makeover people my jaw always hits the floor! You are so full of personality and I love that you incorporate your personal life into your blog, because you are so very interesting and funny! This is a huge milestone, and hopefully a stepping stone to even more exposure!
    Due to scarring (which is finally subsiding, thank God!) I have been wearing makeup since I was 13 (I’m 25 now!) and I only WISH I had such an awesome blog like yours around back then to really help me, because the work I did was atrocious! You have such a talent for bringing out the true beauty in others. When I got into eye makeup, I thought it was pretty basic- you just rub on a little eyeshadow, then line out your eyes with liner. Right? Not! You have taught me about that eye makeup is actually quite an art form, and when done correctly, can do wonders!
    Sure, the other contestants were pretty cool, props to them. But you are so relatable, that you feel like more than just a blog we visit-you feel like a friend also!
    By the way, you have such a beautiful family! Christian is so adorable!
    A huge congrads, and wishing you the best,
    Kari

    Two confessions..
    1. I might have watched all your videos and read the whole blog already.. I know, I am obsessed! You just really know your stuff.
    2. I’ve been HAC-ing my way through life ever since I came across your blog. It changed my life.. ok that’s a bit excessive but it definitely changed my whole make-up routine. Cheers to that!!

    Cara you are the bees knees

    Cara – I have never commented before, but I am a religious follower of your blog! Like many others have said, your blog is the only one I follow as it is interesting, funny, amazingly informative, and simply put “PERFECTION.” Thanks for brightening my day each time I read your blog. This Allure honor is just your “thank you” for giving your readers such daily joy!

Listen, you have a very down-to-earth & approachable style- don’t ever change that, it’s great. I’ve learned a lot from you. Go get ’em girl!!!

    I can’t WAIT for the October issue of Allure! I’ve just recently discovered you, your blog and your BRILLIANCE Cara! And in a matter of days, I’ve officially become obsessed with every part of it…and I’ve also spent over $200 on all of this new make-up…I now must go watch some more videos and figure out what I’m supposed to do with all it… 😀

    Congratulations!!! I have been following you since I took my hair extensions out (and cried like a baby) and found you on pinterest with an article about how to grow long hair….yours is disgustingly beautiful….anywho, I got my allure mag saw the blogger awards and thought gee, Mascara should really enter those and it wasn’t maybe 2 weeks later you had posted on your blog that you were in them !!!! You are the only hair/makeup blogger I follow because I find you seriously self depreciating and funny even though you are gorgeous and talented. great job on allure, u really deserved to win!!!!!

    Congrats!! I absolutely love your blog. Your tutorials and posts are amazing. The extra-large pics, the videos, the lists and how-to’s… The amount of detail is so great for every level of makeup enthusiast. Thanks for taking so much time to explain and teach us the magic of makeup. Your blog is not only informative, but entertaining! You really are someone that your readers can relate to because you come across as so down-to-earth and sweet. You empower us to be confident, beautiful and fun-loving people – THANK YOU!!! Keep all the great stuff coming, we love what you’re doing.

    PS – I have mostly guy friends now (kinda always have) so thanks for being so patient to help give tips to the gals out here who don’t have much of a girly influence in their daily lives!!
