She has a super down-to-earth and fun tone to her posts. And her awesome video and picture tutorials will be your spirit guide through any new beauty endeavor you take on.

Did you know that there are self tanners for your face?! Yaaas. Maybe now I won’t spend so much money on bronzer (plsplspls).

2. Baggy Dark Circle Rehab

I love side by side picture tutorials THE most.

I love side by side picture tutorials THE most.

This post has had my back through countless early mornings. One morning at work, my third 6am shift in a row (kill me), a coworker asked if I had a rough night…because, apparently, I looked especially exhausted and puffy eyed. After getting over being 100% offended, this took a couple days, I took matters into my own hands and made this post my early morning beauty bible. You’ll learn about how to look more awake from the inside out and the do’s & don’ts on how to fake it ’til you make it!

3. Wack HAC

Cara is a master at highlighting and contouring. I’m not exaggerating. She has a ton of posts devoted to this popular beauty technique. She even has a HAC post for each of the individual face shapes!

Someday, I hope--no, DREAM I can be this good at HACing.

The video in the post will help you nail Cara’s flawless HACing techniques and learn what her favorite products for executing the perfect HAC are.

4. Makeover Monday

One of the reasons I love Cara so much is her appreciation of what makes everyone beautiful and emphasis on using makeup as a means to play that up rather than hide it. There’s no hiding with her!

This most recent Makeover Monday with Janae is sooo lovely.

Makeover Mondays on Maskcara are amazing. The transformations are incredible without using a billion products! Just quick, easy additions to play up that beauty that is already there!

5. My Secret Weapon 

This post, and other Friday Favorites posts, got me through some of my worst “me” days. You know…the days when you don’t feel pretty enough or the days when you just don’t feel like enough.

IT'S DA TRUTH.

IT’S DA TRUTH.

I can dig inspirational quotes. I can dig ’em. Sometimes, a person just needs to be reminded of what’s really important in this life. Cara will help you perfect your makeup skills while simultaneously keeping your priorities in check. What more could you ask for?!
