Over the past year, makeup has become a bigger part of my daily routine. As I mentioned, I feel it is part of taking good care of myself to do my hair and makeup just like I did when I was driving to a physical job each day. I have always done some makeup, but in the last year and a half or so, I’ve started following blogs on the subject to learn proper application. My favorite makeup blogger is Cara Brook, who runs the site, maskcara.com. I’ve learned what highlighting and contouring can do for your face and tips on what to do differently for family photo sessions. She also is great about giving drugstore recommendations and when it’s best to splurge on a quality product, which I appreciate.
One of my favorite and most applicable Maskcara videos is her four minute everyday makeup look – some days, let’s face it, that’s about all we have in the morning (or afternoon!) to spend on our faces. Cara is a mom herself, so she gives a very practical way to get your face done with children at home to care for. I hope you find her makeup tips as helpful as I have!
