💄 Hopefully you have already washed your face and moisturized 💄
*note at very bottom if you wanna wear foundation/ have more time!! *
1.) apply 100% aloe vera gel to the high points of your face / anywhere you wanna highlight and allow it to get tacky.
2.) once its tacky apply (starting very lightly) your highlighter over top
🐝 this makes you look so luminous omgg
3.) if you have any problem areas conceal and powder them now , only powder over the concealer !! (please make sure it matches seamlessly )
4.) apply a cream blush of your choosing to your cheeks.
5.) run either tinted or clear brow gel through them brows sweetie. Clear mascara works too!!
6.) spray your face with a setting spray or rose water ( rose water gives your skin an extra pick me up)
7.) apply however much mascara your comfortable with ( if you have a little more time you can apply individual lashes to give yourself a fuller lash look while still looking natural. )
8.) put on your lip liner , lip gloss , tinted lip balm or all three !!who cares!! , and then you’re ready to go . 👑
*note for my foundation wearers/ u have more time : skip the aloe part altogether unless you put it under your makeup as a primer , once your primer is on set the t zone with translucent powder , let sit for 10-15 seconds , apply your foundation as you normally would ! Apply Cream blush with your finger tips , conceal under eye circles if you have them. Set with translucent powder and spray face with rose water / setting spray. While its still slightly damp highlight your face ! *follow other tips proceeding * ✨🌺

The cold water dropped onto your skin, it felt like ghost kisses. You were in the shower after the exhausting classes and your friends have invited you out. Your roommate Jungkook, haven’t came back from his class yet. You have messaged him that you’ll be going out, but he rarely reply to messages.
You rinsed the shampoo out of your hear, humming songs that were in your head. You swung your hips to the rhythm inside your mind and stepped out of the shower, drying your hair with the towel.
Last week I received this alluring bundle from MaskCara Beauty. If you watch my tutorials, you’ll be sort of familiar with the brand having watched me create looks using their IIID Foundation palettes.

She is a lover of all things beauty and has a very successful blog, which you can find here - maskcara.com Cara’s blog contains a whole host of helpful posts!

Cara loves to help women embrace their beauty! As if giving you tips and tutorials on how to get the perfect flawless foundation base wasn’t enough, she went one further and has provided you with the tools and products to do so!
IIID Foundation Palette $45.00
Please excuse the swipe marks in this palette, I have used it a few times. This is the pre-built ‘Medium’ palette which contains an illuminator, blush, highlight and contour shade. I’ve had this particular palette for a while now, and the shades in the pre-built palettes online have recently had a move about to accommodate more skin tones. So the list of shades in this palette may not match the order of the ones online.
The highlight and contour shades are cream foundations, so you would go straight in with these onto your face, there is no need to apply a liquid foundation first. You probably read the word ‘highlight’ and assume that it’s not suitable for the entire face. It’s a foundation shade that is formulated to brighten your face, not add an extreme tippex white triangle under your eyes.
I have a custom built palette next that contains shades suited to a darker skin tone:
Just recently, Maskcara Beauty brought out individual pan refills that come with picturesque tin lids, that slide on and off. They can used to replace an empty pan in your Maskcara palette, or you keep them as individuals which makes them easy to transport in your purse!
IIID Foundation Pan Refills - $10.50 each
I was fortunate enough to receive an array of the new pan refills, as well as their new brushes, and another of my favourite latex-free sponges!! Here are the pans:
I just adore these, and I think they are super convenient! Whether you’re a pro who wants to carry around a minimalistic kit, or if you’re simply a lover of makeup, these tins are the ideal size!
The last colour I have to show you is a favourite of mine, and it’s not for those who like to shy away from blush - that’s for sure! This blush is called, Dahlia.
The Completed Look!
Here is my ‘before & after’ using the Maskcara Beauty IIID Foundation pans, including blush & illuminator:

Working with textured skin: I don’t have this concern so I don’t know much about it but I’d try and use a very light hand when applying blush and face powders. Try blending everything in with your foundation brush after so it presses into your skin and doesn’t sit on top of the texture. You can also try using more cream products like cream blush. If you don’t have one you can mix a bit of lipstick with your foundation to create a cream blush.
Lisa Eldridge has some great tips on how to apply makeup on mature skin. I know that’s not the same as having textured skin but I think her tips apply.
