Hello to all you beautiful readers out there! I hope everyone had a lovely Mother’s Day! I had my mom and family over for a Mother’s Day brunch. I have to say, my table and dining room area are NOT the ideal location for 8 people to eat comfortably. Once we were seated, we had to stay put because there was no moving around. But alas, we are a young couple living in an adorably small home, so a cozy dining experience is to be expected with that many people. I think everyone had a good time and the food was delicious. My brothers and I are quite good at cranking out some carb-loaded dishes.
I made this Blueberry Croissant Puff. It was phenomenal and very easy to put together. Definitely a keeper!
We spent the evening celebrating Mother’s Day, my boyfriend’s birthday, and my birthday at Jack Allen’s with my boyfriend’s family. It was a night of good food and a fun celebration!
But onto the makeup shtuffs…
I first learned about Highlighting and Contouring from a Pinterest pin that led me to Maskcara’s blog. I suppose she was my pioneer of giving people the illusion that I do, in fact, have cheekbones. I was super duper excited to see that she came out with her own foundation!
The idea behind the foundation is different than anything I have ever seen, so having a visual in the video I made below will explain it better than I can in text.
If you first question is “Do I use this over my normal foundation?” or “How does normal foundation fit into this equation?” or “Wait, what, huh?” then you are not alone. You do not need your normal foundation! This is all the foundation you need. I actually Googled this quite a bit before I made the purchase because it didn’t make sense to me, so I will save you the trouble. Still having trouble wrapping your head around this concept? The video will explain everything.
The foundation pods, compact, and brush can be purchased on the IIID Foundation website (pronounced 3D in case you were confused… because I was confused… and blonde). This website can also give you a better text explanation than I can.
BUT HOLD YOUR HORSES AND YOUR CREDIT CARDS! As of today, the deal that I purchased this through is still up on evine. You can purchase the highlight, blush, contour, and illuminator pods as well as the compact and the brush for $49.63. The set will run you $74 on her website, otherwise.
A Warning: I apologize for the atrocious eye makeup. I was attempting something new and bold and it did not translate well on camera. Also, I look insane in the photo I featured on this post. Selfies are awkward, y’all.
Thanks for stopping by! See y’all next time…
