HAC Makeup Makeup Products

IIID Foundation

First of all I HAVE to tell you how much fun I’ve been having with the #spotmyshape-ing. Every time I pulled the hashtag up I was freshly impressed with the incredible beauties filling my feed! Wow, I always talk about how great you guys are on the inside but DAAANG, you are stunning on the outside too! Wow. Also I can’t thank all of you 3’s enough for helping me out! I still know that many of you are awaiting answers so I’ll keep working on it! Also, if you’re a little too shy to post a photo it might be helpful to check out that hashtag to see if you spot a face similar to yours.

Next, I made a video about IIID foundation to introduce it to you all and give an overview of how it works and all that jazz.
Tomorrow I’ll post the actual tutorial an answer any and all of your questions( I know many have already been asked so I will address all of those as well) and then at MIDNIGHT on BLACK FRIDAY I will release it into the wild! (SO sorry about the delay! I’m a first timer here and some things are WAY more complicated than I want them to be!)

My number one concern about the product is that every single woman who orders it knows which color to choose and understands how to use it. No Hac-er Left Behind Policy. So I have a few ideas on how I plan to tackle that but I wanted to talk to you about one of them in particular. After I went to the Pinner’s Conference and got to meet so many awesome readers and was able to help them pick a color and apply the product, I got thinking.  Wouldn’t it be cool if I could do that more often? Kind of like a book tour but for IIID Foundation? So if you own a boutique, salon or space (or know someone who does) and you might be willing to host an event like this in your city please fill out this form!

One quick thought: Although I am absolutely thrilled and excited about this new line and although this week is pretty IID-ified I promise that my blog isn’t going to turn into a big old commercial. I only say that because I am a blog reader myself and if I saw that one of the bloggers I like was releasing a product I would be concerned about that. There is no company who will ever come between me and my readers and my own is no exception:)

    Congrats to you and your family! Lots of hard work goes into this, and good luck to you. I was wondering if you could share who is backing your line for those of us who only buy from companies that do not test on animals? Who is the company? Do they test on animals? Do they have makeup lines in other countries, such as China who require animal testing?
    Please do post a listing of those locations where you will be on your IIID tour. 🙂

    Hi Cara…I am going to talk with my salon and see if they will host an event. I would love nothing more than to meet you in person! Your blog has totally transformed my makeup routine! I tell everyone to check out your blog. I am not as afraid to try new products.. truly trust your recommendations. I would love your thoughts on how to camoflouge “jowls”. I’m only 38 but feel like I have the pre jowls.. xoxo from PA

    An afterthought..would you consider doing a “teen” segment..my daughter is 14 and doesn’t wear a lot of makeup. What products would be better for her? Lighter shades for a more subdued look? Any advice from you is better than mom’s.. 😉 lol

    This fair chica is excited too. Can you tell us where and when it’s for sale? I would love a video for different skin tones… Also, I currently use Loreal’s green… primer? It’s to counteract the redness in my skin and I really like it. Would I use that before this? And would the highlighting work to hide blemishes or should I take care of that before or after the highlighting? Just some questions for your next video!

I have been looking everywhere and I don’t see where you have said we could buy this. Is it going to be here on your blog or an online store like Sephora? Again I am beyond excited.

I’m 52 and try my best to look put together and “with it” but I don’t always exceed when it comes to make up so I’m looking forward to future posts and videos about your new line as much as I have enjoyed the past posts and videos. I’m curious to know how you plan to attack the question of which color we need for our skin. Like Anisha I’m between light and med and like Caroline I have a lot of red undertones and wondering how to deal with that. Ok, I could go on an on with my questions but one last one is that of powder. Do you use powder or forgo the powder? If your ever in Michigan I’d wait in line to meet you in person. Your the sweetest and congratulations!

        Oops! One more thing…do you use this for coverage all over your face? I am having a hard time grasping how just those two colors do everything! Especially on problem skin like mine. Adult acne with melasma (brown spots) on a daily basis! So I need coverage all over and then some. Will this even work on skin like mine? And if not, can it be returned? Thanks!

    Hallo, im not sure about yellow and blue undertones and whether one even needs to consider that when buying your foundation but would it be correct to assume that because im fair i should just buy the lightest shade? Does undertone amd redness etc factor in? And if so would you consider doing another instagram hashtag once over of some faces just as a guide? Thanks 🙂

    It’s always so hard to describe how HAC works. I am really hoping to try your version soon! I was thinking about how I describe it to my students and it really helps to show them a picture of a black and white drawing of a cylinder. If you look at the outline on paper (2D surface) it looks flat. When you add the shading and leave the highlights white it pops out 3D. Voila. Anyhow, best of luck on your IIID adventure.

    I’m so excited for these products! I don’t HAC my face every day because I have to pull out so much makeup to pull it off, on top of the finishing touch makeup, like eyeshadows and mascara and whatnot, and like you said. It takes so long. So some days my face does just end up looking like a blank canvas, because I always have to put at least foundation on for coverage (I’m 32. Gone are the days of going bare faced). I’m also really super pale, so I’m excited to see how these will work for that, too. Thank you for thinking about that, too! It’s so hard to be pale and find the right color to contour with.

    I am really excited to try your line of makeup!
    Although- my question is, I have pretty bad acne, would your makeup be too light of a coverage for me?
    I feel like my skin always gets in the way of having a natural looking face, either it’s blotchy acne showing, or caked in makeup :/
    Either way- I’m excited to give it a shot!

    What I’m wondering is: What if I am the opposite of most people on where I breakout? I have acne scars under cheekbones and this has been frustrating when covering with foundation, and then trying to contour, and then having that wipe off the foundation concealing the acne. Will I be covered with the contouring shade? Can we have a version with high coverage in both shades?

    Oh, wonderful, Cara – I wondered if you would be “releasing it into the wild” in time for the Christmas season, and sho’ ’nuff, it’s almost here! Can’t wait to try it, and believe me, I don’t think anyone’s going to mind hearing or talking about it for some time to come! Woo-hooooooooo! 🙂

    One question I have, which you might address in your tutorial, which brushes will you be best to apply all the makeup? You used your fingers for the blush but you had a different brush for the foundation

    This is exciting! Will you be having any giveaways of the product? Also, if I buy it and it doesn’t work for me what is your return policy? Sorry, they are both money based questions! I’m a college student and am forced to think about these things when purchasing items 🙂 Keep up the good work!

I’m so excited to get the HAC pack because I have been running around everywhere trying to find the perfect shade and trying to figure out how to do it. What can you recommend would be a good pack out of the 3 types you are selling for skin tone similar to Shay Mitchell of PLL? I am so excited for the set!!

You are an inspiration. As Drake would say “Started from the Bottom” Congratulations. And once again thank you for sharing your story about Christian’s birth father. You are as strong as an ox girl!

    So excited to try your new makeup! I am wondering though, will you have any sort of return policy? When I’m trying new products, I usually try to buy them at places like Ulta or Sephora that allow returns even if the product has been used. I’m nervous to drop 50 bucks on your makeup and then find out it doesn’t work for me (for whatever reason). Sometimes, products that have great reviews just don’t work for everyone. Just wondering about that! I understand that you might not be able to accept returns for financial reasons, but if you can, then I would definitely order with no reservations!

    I feel the same way about trying to get the contouring color right. It was always too warm. I finally found a Smashbox contouring kit that works but it is a powder and can sometimes look too “powdery.” I can not wait to try your foundation, I love the idea of having less makeup overall on my face, but getting the same effects!

    I can’t even tell you how excited I am for you about your line… and for me to get it! I discovered HAC through your blog and I love, love, love it. I just started HAC’ing and I find that my skin is actually breaking out LESS because I’m using less foundation and concealer by HAC (I know this sounds weird… but using less makeup with the HAC = less breakouts = even less makeup to cover up any breakouts). I will definitely be ordering from your line because your blog and your videos have changed my whole routine… for the first time in my life, I feel like I know what I’m doing with my makeup and I’ve been getting tons of compliments. Thank you, Cara!

Thanks to you, I finally started filling in my eyebrows at the ripe age of 30! Can not wait to purchase your products.

    For your Q&A – I have a bit of a double-chin. It’s not really weight-related, just have a little overhang that tends to show up in pictures taken from the wrong angle (I’m sticking my chin out now, thanks for that tip). Is there a way to use contour to de-emphasize it?

    Can you please please tell us if the products are non-comedogenic? I’ve been searching the world for a great palette foundation like this but they all have ingredients that make my skin break out. I tried the MacPro (not Mac) foudantion and it was full of comedogenic ingredients. I know I would LOVE this product.. But will my skin? Also, is it a long lasting foundation? I have tres oily skin and most liquid foundations slide off my face in a couple hours. I have to use powder foundation but they end up covering so much more than I want. Thanks

    On another note, I would just like to say that I love your blog, and would miss you terribly if your business becomes so HUGE that you simply don’t have time to blog…but how amazing would that be for you!? You deserve everything you get, not because you have an awesome blog, or because you have so many followers, or because you owe anything to your followers, but because you are so talented. I hope you don’t go anywhere, but far be it from me to try to hold someone back from big things in her life simply because I don’t want to have to do without her. So, just from one follower, I wanted you to know, you owe me nothing but to be true to yourself and to your talent, whatever that looks like.

While I understand your reasoning for this, ALL my breakouts are on my cheeks and I have fair skin so it’s so hard to cover up already. How would the contour deal with other makeup either over of under it? Can you do that and it still look perfect?

    hey! so I just uploaded a before/after picture and my instagram is: anakittykat.

    There’s not a HUGE difference in my before/after but hopefully this can help a little bit! I got medium and I found the highlighter to be the perfect color but the contour just barely shows up (or at least, not enough for my liking) so I always end up lightly brushing bronzer over it and especially around my jawline. Even though the contour is pretty light on my skin, it still matches the highlighter color really well and I just feel like the highlighter on the dark would be too dark? hope this helps!

      Thanks Hannah! You’re right there isn’t a huge difference but there is definitely a subtle and natural looking difference! Your skin tone is similar to mine! I’m so excited to try my HAC pack because it has always been super hard to find make up that matches my skin tone! I think we could always use a touch of bronzer over the contour color if we want it to be darker! It looks awesome on you 🙂

I live in Vicenza and think it would be great to get your product out here and while your out here pamper a couple of deserving military wives…..Thanks!!
