Before & Afters Makeup

Makeover Monday

Wow! What a crazy and incredible weekend!
I can’t apologize enough for all of the crashing that went on and the sleep that was lost!
At the same time I am soo grateful that so many of you were so excited and supportive enough to crash it:)

I cannot wait until you all have the IIID in your hands!
I am running SUPER low on the Medium so if you are wanting it, get it while it’s hot!
(also I am working my hardest to get a all of the shades spotted and will be answering all of the new questions as well:)
On to the beautiful Rebecca…
mmmm
Here’s what I did:
I really wanted to add some color to her on her forehead area and neck and I’ll tell you why, it is so much easier and more natural looking to even out the redness and dark circles on a face when you can add a little pigment so that the color variation kind of meets in the middle. Does that make sense? So I added some Tomas to her forehead, sides of her face and her neck before we started with the makeup.
Once I added that color she was a medium in IIID foundation so I applied that and the Princess Peach blush.
She’s a face shape that I didn’t talk about! How did I forget inverted triangle!? I’ll make a diagram for this one but in the meantime I just focused the contour color on her forehead, sides of her nose, under her chin and down her neck, high up on the temple area and then a very fine line right beneath her cheekbones. I used the highlight color under her eyes, down the center of her nose and between her brows and on her chin and jawline.

She is a young mom so I wanted to keep the whole look very natural and easy so I used Taupe and espresso (from Lorac Pro Palette) on her eyes with the blended liner technique.
On her lips I used cover girl mink to line them and filled with Buxom Gloss in Samantha

Hope you guys had a fun weekend and a fun day with cyber monday, I wanna hear about your amazing deals so I can live vicariously through you since I had to sit out this year. Did you fight anyone for a TV? Did you wait in line for half your Thanksgiving? Or did you stay up all night refreshing a site for some IIID foundation?:)

    Goood morning Cara! Yes, I stayed up for the IIID… got it into my basket and then completed the purchase in the morning! I’m getting married in October and this will be part of my bridal makeup kit! I also want to thank you for making your cosmetics cruelty free! .β™‘β™₯β™‘

    Hi Cara. I have not ordered the IID yet as I am a bit confused. Is the highlight (yellow ) and the contour all you use on your face or do you put on a regular foundation first ?

          Hi girls, happy Monday, I maybe wrong, but I think the yellow is going to be used in lieu of a “regular” foundation. It’s basically a yellow toned neutralizing creme Hope this helps a little.

        haha I TOTALLY understand your fears about the yellow! It does NOT look very appealing! But if you take a look at all of the faces I’ve used it on in my before and afters you’ll see that it does not look like that on! I have really found that a fair amount of yellow is necessary to create a “glowing” look rather than a chalky look! As for the regular foundation, I find that the coverage you get using the blush the highlight foundation and the contouring foundation is plenty for most people. As you can see in the video, by the time I am done I’ve gotten coverage on the majority of the face. I think it makes the product awesome because it gives you the control to cover what needs covering and not what doesn’t. I will explain it visually in an upcoming video as well!

    I wondering if the IIID I purchased might be too light… I am fair and usually mid-range tones look wrong on me, most winters I have to use fair/alabaster/light. Also, I have very little color in my lips, zhould I stay away from nudes? Right now I’m realky loving Baby Lips in the purple. Its sheer and just gives me that hint of color I need. What would you recommend for longer lasting color?

      I am also pale, and I use Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey. I am a bit paler than you (I usually wear the lightest shade of a foundation range, except for a few with a lot of shades like NARS or MUFE, in the summer, and the shade I need for winter is non-existent) and I ordered the light… I can’t answer you like Cara could, but you may find that the Light works for you in the winter now, and then when you buy your next you may want Medium because it’ll be spring/summer!

      Cara said that the blush color is really adaptable so the shade is just a matter of preference. The Princess Peach is going to be more warm and subtle than the Shortcake. The Shortcake is more “bright and alive.”

    I ordered mine Friday morning around 7 and was happy that I wait because I had no problem with crashing. I did go shopping Thursday night but just one store and yes I stood in line for 2 hours before it opened. There was no trampling and it was very orderly which I was surprised with since it was a major retail store. Anyways I am so excited to get my IIID I will be checking the mail everyday till it comes. I do have a few questions about the Tomas spray because I was thinking about also trying it out. does it smell? does it spray out fast or is it a light mist? I am concerned that I will spray it on and it wont be even. Could you please do a video showing us how you use it and apply it. I just want that perfect look you have. πŸ™‚

    Got the 2 things I wanted: IIID foundation and the Garth Brooks Box Set!! Cara, I would love to see a video of you putting the makeup on someone else and describing what you are doing as you go. And, don’t take this the wrong way, but using a model who has “real” skin. Meaning, your skin is so great to begin with that it looks flawless and easy to do on you. I would love to see you put it on someone or maybe a couple different people that have things like: dark circles, blemishes, scars, dark spots from pregnancy, red patches, dry patches, oily spots, whatever, etc! That way we would have a tutorial to look back on when we have a day when say we are broke out, or tired, or developing melasma and we want to know how to use your makeup to help us “fix” all those problems! That’s just my wish. I know it would take a lot of time and effort to find models and make help videos, but I thought I’d throw out the idea incase anyone else out there was thinking along the same lines. Thank you so much!

    Your makeup line really looks amazing. My sister and I both ordered it. We have been using bare minerals powder foundation and warmth and have never loved it, and we are so excited to switch over to this! We can’t afford to buy the nice brush you recommended though. Could you recommend a couple other brushes that would work pretty well in a lower price range? I’m sure everyone would appreciate it! Thanks so much. You are so talented!

      Sigma makes really amazing foundation and concealer brushes that look pretty similar to either side of the brush that Cara used. Sigma brushes are about $15-$20 each online but are totally worth it… I’ve used the F82 Round Kabuki brush for foundation every day for almost two years, and it’s still perfect.

      If you’re looking for an even better price on brushes, Coastal Scents brushes are really nice too, and they’re a fraction of the price of Sigma brushes (although they won’t last as long as a higher quality brush). They have a huge selection of face brushes online so I’m sure there’s something comparable to the brush Cara used. There’s actually a 50% sale on their website right now! Hope that helps! =)

    I really just stumbled across your blog today. I was looking at purchasing samples of another brand’s makeup, and they had posted your contour/highlight video tutorial on their FB page. When I clicked the link, I was brought here and I saw the references to your new IIID HAC makeup, and I just knew that the makeup gods had led me here! I have always liked the glowy “MBB” look, and I’ve always hated having to first apply the flat-looking foundation, then concealer, then go back over to add back in depth and color. I was actually looking at the previously mentioned makeup brand because I thought maybe I could use lighter and darker shades of their foundation to do exactly what you created your IIID product for! Talk about serendipity!
    On a side note, you look strangely like two of my sisters: like one when you have dark hair, and like the other with your blond/honey colored hair. Yet, these two sisters of mine look nothing alike, and almost don’t look related! Eerie. πŸ˜›
    In terms of your ambition to create this product, you remind me of Paula Begoun, who started out as a makeup/skincare/cosmetics consumer advocate whose mission in life was to inform women of the skincare scams out there, and to guide them to good products. She eventually realized she could just make her own ideal skincare products, which she named Paula’s Choice, and it’s the best skincare I’ve ever used! I have a very good feeling that I’m going to feel the same way about your IIID makeup. πŸ™‚

    Hey Cara! Question…in the extremely unfortunate event (for me – not you ;))that you should run out of HAC packs soon how long will it take for you to get more in stock? Just trying to determine how much pressure to put on the hubs πŸ˜‰ Congrats on everything! You’ve had a marvelous year!!!

    Hey Cara!!! I would LOOOOOOOVE to see videos of your make-overs you do, and even more videos in general (hair, make-up, etc). I learn best by watching and seeing exactly how it’s applied. I’m the worst with make-up and need to know exactly how to do every little step. Especially being new to your foundation it would be great to watch different videos of you using it on different people. And I always love your make-overs, but am always confused how to get those looks myself. I know not everyone is into videos, but they don’t have to watch if they don’t want to. It would just be helpful for me, and others, I’m sure! And I’m sure making videos can be hard and/or time consuming, but they can even be the simplest video, I just know it would help me so much! Please and thank you!

    Hi Cara,

    I’m curious how you use the Tomas spray tan… does the color appear instantly? Or do you apply it earlier in the day and then do the makeup a few hours later?

    As far as method, do you use a mitt or sponge, or do you just spray directly onto the face?

    Thank you for your help!!!

    Christmas will come a little early when your HAC pack comes!
    Question—-when You use Tomas do you rub it in at all because
    It looks a bit “old age” spotty in places for me. Also something
    Funny I pinned my 14 yr old son down and sprayed his face
    With it for out family pictures to give h some color

    I think the work you do is amazing. I have been using you technique for almost a year now and still get comments. At a family party my dad commented to someone how much makeup they were wearing. She wasn’t wearing a lot of makeup. In fact, I was probably wearing more than her but it looked natural so I didn’t look like I was wearing a whole lot. My friend from church said to me one day when I first started “HAC”ing that I looked clean and fresh. She wanted to know my secret. I told her about you and your wonderful website. Thanks for all you do.

    Rebecca looks gorgeous! I am a young mom of a three year old with another on the way, and would LOVE to try your 3D foundation! I hope you continue with all of your hard work and continue to make unique and more affordable products (and hopefully someday I will be able to try them for myself, but I am too focused on getting stuff for my little ones and cannot justify getting makeup for myself right now). Congratulations on all of your success Cara!

      I agree. I would love to see it with exact same lighting as the before photo. It is a great makeover tho. The dark undereye circles are of particular interest to me. Great job!
