With summer approaching, it’s time to share my sunscreen guide 2022 with you! As much as we love the sun, it can have harmful effects on our skin and the best way to protect it is by wearing a sunscreen that will protect you from harmful UV rays. There are so many choices on the shelves at the store, so which sunscreen is right for you? I’ve created this guide to help you as you pick the one that will offer your skin the protection it needs, work with your skin type, and work well with your day to day activities this summer!

The guide that I’ve put together below contains different types of sunscreens that I have tested myself on my own skin. As I always say, it’s important to keep in mind that everyone’s skin is different so what works for one person may not work for another. For more skincare tips, check out my skincare guide here.

Demi Colour

Demi Colour is Seint’s newest breakthrough in makeup, bringing together science and beauty! You are going to absolutely LOVE this – I know it looks different, but trust me on this! The new line was recently released by Seint and has been all the rave ever since. There have been so many questions about the makeup ever since its release and so I’m here to tell you all about Demi Colour and why its become so popular among Artists and customers alike! You can also click here to join me on my Demi Instagram page where I offer tips, tricks, LIVES, and more to help you in your Demi Colour journey!

When I tell you this makeup has been a breakthrough discovery, I mean it! Demi Colour is a cream based makeup, just like the IIID foundation that Seint still carries but the difference is this line uses color theory to help you camouflage the smaller imperfections noticed and really accentuate the beauty that is already there. Using Demi means using less makeup compared to traditional foundations, “resulting in an undetectable makeup that reveals the magic of your face.” This new line of makeup helps to balance tones, add depth, and achieve a flawless finish! 

How can I get started with Demi Colour?

Artists for Seint still color match customers to their Demi colours, or Edits as they are called, but they are required to become certified beforehand. They are carefully trained in color theory and must practice the application of the makeup themselves before they can color match customers to the makeup line. As you can see, this line of makeup has been carefully crafted by Cara and a lot of thought has gone into the creation of Demi Colour for customers. Lucky for you lovelies, I’m certified and ready to color match you whenever you’re ready! 

The makeup is split into 3 Edits for customers: Angel Edit I (for fair to light toned individuals), Angel Edit II (for medium to medium dark toned individuals or individuals that I feel pull more green & blue tones), and Angel Edit III (for dark/deep toned individuals). Once a customer has been matched by a certified Artist to their correct Angel Edit, they can begin by purchasing the Angel Edit altogether or buying it bit by bit and beginning with the smaller Edits that correspond to the number they were matched to.

Can I use the same brushes for Demi that I use for IIID?

The new line of makeup also includes a new line of brushes specially tailored to Demi Colour to provide precise and smooth application. There are 5 new brushes to choose from for Demi application: 

Each brush is double ended just like the IIID brushes and serve to aid in application of Demi Colour as you balance tones, sculpt, and brighten your face and create that natural, flawless finish!

 

What has Demi Colour meant to me?

It’s amazing how something so good can drop into your lap when you least expected it to do so. Especially when it comes down to makeup. Demi has been that incredible game changer. I am so excited to show and teach more of Demi Colour. This is a makeup that you were not expecting to be such a game changer but it is! The way Demi Colour uses color science to create a makeup look as if you are not wearing any makeup at all is been incredible. Demi teaches you to analyze the color(s) that you see on your face creating an issue for you and apply the smallest amount of Demi to that area using the color needed to neutralize those problem areas. Throughout knowing more about Demi and learning the ropes, you will hear the words neutralize, saturated, brightening, sculpting, and more. 

You will become more familiar with the actual colors on your face and what colors you see in depth. Demi Colour will also aid you in becoming familiar with the best ways to treat any saturated color on the face that you are wanting to address. Know that because this is so new, there will be a little practice time. Feel free to reach out to me on my Instagram page, Demi and Joce and get help with your Demi. It is different but I promise you it is incredible and most definitely worth learning!

From Maskcara to Seint

Recently, Maskcara Beauty has made a pretty significant change to the company; they have officially moved on from Maskcara to Seint. With their upcoming birthday (January 15th) right around the corner, they finally revealed the surprise we have all been dying to hear. That being said, I have been receiving so many questions about this big change – why, when, who, etc. So keep reading to hopefully answer what you’ve been wondering!

Why Did They Change the Name?

Maskcara Beauty will always be a beloved part of our story. As the brand has grown, we have seen some issues with the name Maskcara; that the story of Cara’s blog gets lost, that we don’t actually sell mascara, that we don’t believe that makeup is a “mask,” and perhaps most importantly that this isn’t just Cara’s story. We wanted a name that Artists particularly could connect to and feel a sense of ownership of. Recognizing and enhancing the beauty that already exists in every face has always been our inspiration, so we are changing our name to better reflect our mission.

I couldn’t have said it better myself! A huge part of Maskcara has always been the Artists. While it is a direct sales company, the Artists are intended to be there for their customers every step of the way, not just for sales. They are, in a sense, your personal makeup artist, answering any questions you might have and helping you recognize the beauty that’s already there. In addition, the decision to say goodbye to Maskcara and introduce Seint is one Cara felt represented the company better than it’s former name. Seint no longer associates itself with just one woman, but with many, especially the Artists who connect women to each other!

What Does "Seint" Mean?

Our brand is about bringing beauty to the world and enhancing the beauty in every face. We believe there is a truth and a wholeness in beauty, and that concept kept bringing us back to beauty being divine and holy. We wanted a name that embraces the idea that beauty can stand on its own. The name is inspired by our belief that seeking, experiencing, and cultivating beauty is a sacred work; the work of saints. Saints aren’t made or created; they are simply recognized for the good they bring to the world. In a similar way, we believe that we don’t make or create beauty; we recognize, nurture, and preserve it.

“Seint” is the traditional French spelling of the word “Saint” and it’s perfect to describe the work of Artists, helping women recognize the beauty they have and enhancing it. I have always loved Maskcara because the makeup isn’t meant to hide your true beauty compared to other brands. Instead, it helps you see the beauty that’s  there and bring it to light!

Have the Products Changed?

Brushes, perfectors, palettes, and the skincare line are all getting an updated look, but the functionality of the product will stay the exact same. You will notice a very subtle change with the Seint rebranded tins.​

Seint has updated all of their product packaging to reflect the name change and let me just say how gorgeous all of it is! The former Maskcara makeup brushes have also received a gorgeous update to both the look and the names. You can read more about them here!  Shown below are some of the updated packaging/products in addition to the new makeup bag, travel case, and brush holder. Even though the packaging has changed, the HAC (Highlight and Contour) method is still the same, tried and true. The tools are even more beautiful now to use as you apply your makeup!

Next

Most products have received an update while others will be discontinued once their current stock is sold out. Those are: 

  • Milk Creme (Tidal)
  • Milk Toner (Tidal)
  • Milk Cleanser (Tidal)
  • Stay Setting Spray with SPF
 Any products that are limited edition/seasonal items will also be discontinued once they have sold out so make sure to go grab some of those goodies while they last! 

Overall, this company truly impresses me time and time again. The purpose, products, and Artist program have been an incredible experience to be a part of and I can’t wait to see how far it will go! I love being an Artist with this company and I have been one for going on 4 years now. The name Maskcara will forever hold a special place in my heart but I can’t wait to see what the future holds for Seint! Stay tuned for more and new products to come because there will be new eyeshadows, new foundation colors, and a brand new product ready to shine!
