A couple of years ago, something amazing happened! Allure Magazine selected a handful of us as finalist in their Beauty Blogger of the Year Awards and i was fortunate enough to be one of them. While the competition itself was super exciting and nerve wrecking, i consider myself incredibly fortunate because aside from the really cool experience, i met some AMAZING girls! Cara (check out her gorgeous blog here although i can't imagine that you haven't already) blew me and the rest of the country away with her incredible highlighting and contouring skills. She literally transformed herself with a few strokes of genius! I knew at that very moment, this girl was a star! For obvious reasons, Cara won the competition and made an instant fan out of me! When i learned that Cara launched her very own IIID Foundation (highlighting and contouring kit) i was over the moon excited for her because everyone (myself included) needed in on her HAC action! Within a few days of its launch, i purchased the palette which initially came with a contouring color and highlighting color. Sadly, i couldn't get it to work for my skin. I'm not sure if i went wrong with the color selection but i kind of just let it be because while it didn't work for me, it seemed to work beautifully for so many other people. Still i hoped that Cara would tweak the formula just a bit in hopes of having better luck with it.
If you happened to try the first round of Cara's IIID Foundation and for whatever reason felt as though it didn't work for you i urge you to try the new palette! It's uhhhhhmazing! I promise!!!
I decided to create a video in addition to this blog post simply because i wanted to illustrate to you just how easy it is to apply. I know my lighting isn't the best but you'll see what i mean. Besides, i think the pictures speak for themselves right?
Here's the video i created on using this product! Enjoy :)
Thank you so much for reading! Xo, Carla - FMM
