So easy your husband can do it.

A few months ago Nick was trying to convince my Sister in-law that she shouldn’t be afraid of trying IIID foundation. It’s not hard, he said. I could even do it, he said.

And at that moment we decided that he should do it. But when he does, he should definitely be taped doing it. Because whether he totally killed it or he totally blew it, it would be kind of hilarious to watch.

So, of course, you’ll have to watch to find out which one it is:)

IIID Foundation 

All makeup skills aside, I love watching this video because to me, it’s crystal clear when I see me looking at him, how much I love that man. It’s just written all over my face, amirite?

    Cara, that video had me howling with laughter! I love everything about this post; your cuteness as a couple, the way he’s totally concentrating so hard to do a good job, how he’s supporting your biz, and how it all comes together at the end. I admit after he put the blush on I thought it was more circus clown than what you usually do but it does look pretty good after blending! Thank you both so much for putting yourselves out there and doing this video, it made my day (and it’s not even 7 am!) 🙂 xo

    That was so much fun to watch. I talked about Maskcara IIID so much my husbsand was probably more excited than I was (and I was pretty thrilled, let me tell ya) when we got it in the mail. I am going to see if he wants to try putting it on me. If he does I will record it and send it to you.

I would love to see more husband attempts in upcoming posts!!!– your hubby or reader-contributed videos for a competition/drawing, or a video of a whole row (maybe 3-6) of men attempting to follow one of your video tutorials on their ladies. Can you imagine what you’d end up with as 6 men watching a smoky eye or winged liner tutorial unleashed their talents on their ladies?!

    Best video EVER. I am a major tightwad, and I have resisted buying a iiiD kit because it would be a splurge for me, and I was not sure I could make it work – but Nick is selling the living daylights out of it. Think I will be treating myself this summer…

    I just received my Maskcara delivery on Saturday from Evine so this is a very timely video … very sweet as well. The light set is a perfect match and the brush is perfect. I didn’t think I did that great of a job applying it for the first time but I tried again after watching this video and it is coming easier. Thanks!

    Cara, I’ve followed your blog for a couple of years now. I’ve absolutely LOVED watching your tutorials over the years! Yesterday I took the plunge and finally ordered my first ever IIID foundation! I can’t WAIT for it to arrive! I’ve honestly never been more excited in my life to try new makeup! I’ve tried contouring before using products I already own, but it’s never looked as good as what I think your makeup can do. Hopefully it gets here next week! 🙂
