    Your make-overs are always absolutely gorgeous!

    Is the only way to get subscribe to your blog via email through Bloglovin? I used to get your posts via email and then realized I wasn’t receiving them. So I subscribed through the button on the left and started receiving emails via Bloglovin — but I don’t want updates on 20 blogs — I only want yours. Is there another way to subscribe so I only receive your blog posts? Thank you.

    Just had to comment …. her reaction was PRICELESS! So sweet; so genuinely surprised that she was capable of such beauty. Her reaction just made her that much more precious. 😉 Love her and I don’t even know her. Cara, it would be amazing if you’d have a video for all (or at least most) of your before and afters. 🙂

    Omygosh I adore this one because Marie reminds me of my Mum and I would love to do this for her next time she visits to give her a little boost. So wish I could get your products in Australia Cara. Great work x

    Hi Cara!
    I just received my IIID and unfortunately, your company sent me too contour colors but not the highlight color that I ordered. Who do I contact to remedy this?

    Love the over 40 tips! They are hard to come by. Any suggestions for melting eye makeup? By mid day my eyeliner/mascara looks like it has migrated to my cheekbones, lol! I don’t dare try a smokey eye because I will look like I have been beat up before noon.

    I have one question. Is the blender sponge dampened? I feel like when I use one dampened it removes more makeup than blending it instead. Also, are there tips for Contour for mature women? I got the highlight part from this video but I didn’t know if you did more than just the nose. Thanks!

      maybe you aren’t wringing it out enough? When the sponges are dry they are actually more likely to remove the makeup, because – as sponges do – they will absorb some of the liquid product. I can see how it would be counterproductive though if the sponge retained too much water, so squeeze that baby till you can’t anymore!

    Thank you for a more mature makeover…I’m in that category. I struggle with dark circles and eyelids. This was a great tutorial my only suggestion is to lose the music…I want to hear your voice!

    Her sweetness just shines out of her! She is just so beautiful, both ways.
    I would love to know if you used a lighter color than Brun on her brows – my hair isn’t super-pale like hers is, but my brows are very light – and both ends have just kind of disappeared over the years, so some of my browline is just skin (sounds pretty, right? ); I feel like lighter is a better bet with those two factors, but haven’t yet found my YES THIS IS IT! solution. This color looks very close to mine, though!

    Marie is beautiful in the before pics, but she feels beautiful in the after! I just love her reaction! This is the reason wear make up. I feel pretty when I’m done. 🙂
