Over at Maskcara Cosmetics we’ve (I know, we are a we now! Kind of mind blowing. I’ve gotta introduce you guys!) been brainstorming and BRAINSTORMING about this ONE thing for a week now and when we still came up empty I said, “DUH! I’ll ask my readers! They’ll know.” Cause, you will. You always do.
It go me thinking about all the times you guys knew things I didn’t and were kind enough to let me in on the goods, so I thought I’d share a few (of the many) things that came to mind:
Easily one of my favorite’s in my beauty bag. I made an entire video singing its praises, and not just for the sun kissing it does. It has many other magical attributes as well. One of you guys mentioned it in the comment section a couple of years ago and forever changed the course of my face tanning life.
Speaking of tanner…
Ya,I have a problem with knowing when to say “when” to self tanner. I’ve known I have this tendency for some time now. Luckily though, when I’ve gone too far…like this day…🙈

People ask me ALL THE TIME and have done so since I started the blog “are you ever worried about running out of ideas?” the answer is a resounding “NO!” Thanks to my feedback I get new ideas pouring in every single day.
The makeup line.
When I created it I had me and a few friends/sisters/moms to help with testing. I got it to where I loved it and it worked well on my skin and they signed off as well. As soon as I got it in thousands of your hands though, I starting hearing many of the same things as far as concerns went. I realized right away we needed to make a few changes.
After listening to you about the formula and the ability to re-fill one product at a time I was able to make it 1000 times better. I love looking on the back end of my e-commerce site because now the return customers out weight the new customers each week by about 3 times. I can’t tell you how happy that makes me, I feel like I can always find new people to try it out but my biggest joy is knowing the ones who have are happy.
I always wonder how companies make improvements without the first hand opinions of caring friends. Makes me feel extremely grateful and fortunate.
Which brings me to my latest conundrum.
We are working on these really cute images for some updated packaging (you’re gonna LOVE IT) here’s one we’ve already created: It’s for stone. We, predictably, used stones.
And pearls for pearl.
All the products are pretty much stuff we can take quite literally. But how do you photograph SHADOW?
What should we use that would be cool and 3D but still bring shading to mind?
Ideas we’ve already decided against:
Nick’s proposal that we use Jonny Depp’s face in Dark Shadows.
Using a the word shadow in shadow form. (too cheesy?)
If YOU are the one that gives us the winning idea it’ll mean $100 in Maskcara makeup + bragging rights for LIFE. (cause, you know, this stuff is gonna be BIG TIME, right!?)
