FAQ from my clients:

"Can you just come do my makeup everyday?"

"How do you highlight and contour?"

"What steps do I take to apply my makeup?"
--

 Trust me.. I wish I could do your makeup everyday! Unfortunately, we are not all Kim K & have the luxury of a 24/7 personal mua! What if I told you there's a product that allows YOU to create a "mua quality" application simpler and faster, without breaking your bank. When you sit in my makeup chair, you deserve the full experience - the best products, the best techniques - that is my job & it is my pleasure to enhance your natural beauty! I will continue to use and share these products with y'all because I know you love it like me :)

It is also my heart to give you another option that I truly do think you will enjoy & have fun with. Maskcara is a one stop shop for all your makeup needs, and you will be able to achieve a flawless look super fast, easy, and cheap! Highlighting and contouring does not have to be scary anymore.

Maskcara Beauty was founded by beauty blogger, Cara Brooks, on the idea that makeup should be used to enhance the true beauty in a woman’s face, rather than covering it up.  She stresses that your face is not one dimensional, which is why Maskcara's biggest seller is their IIID foundation. The idea is that all you need is highlight and contour (HAC). A HAC pack is a compact filled with four IIID foundation colors --only $48 which comes with a pretty magnetic palette of your choice.  Each customizable palette includes a cream highlight, contour, blush/lip duo, and illuminator shade. With Maskcara's dual ended brushes, you can do your whole makeup routine from start to finish and look flawless in about 5 minutes! 

oh, and did I mention the branding of this product is perfection?! This stuff has truly changed my everyday makeup routine. 

Go to www.maskcarabeauty.com/makeupbycait  & check out their beautiful products!

Use my code #8279 at checkout if you are ever interested in purchasing! And please ask if you have questions! I can help you with choosing the correct shades for your skin tone!
