Seint Makeup for Beginners: Ultimate Guide to Mastering the Art of Cream Makeup

Seint Makeup for Beginners: Your Ultimate Guide to Mastering the Art of Cream Makeup

Riddle me this… What makes Seint different? Yeah, it’s cream makeup – who gives a crap, everyone is moving to cream – but WHY IS SEINT DIFFERENT!? Let me tell you: it’s all-in-one baby.

“Seint cream makeup” refers to the makeup products offered by Seint Official, a cosmetics brand known for its cream-based formulated all-in-one makeup palettes. Seint makeup includes products such as highlight (foundation), lip & cheeks (blush and lip colors), illuminator (highlighter), contour, eyeshadow, and more. These cream-based products are designed to offer buildable coverage and blendability, fitting into one compact and allowing users to achieve a natural, flawless look, perfect for all ages and skin types. Seint’s approach to makeup focuses on simplicity and enhancing natural beauty, often utilizing a technique called “HAC” (highlight and contour) to create dimension and definition on the face.

Let me break down Seint makeup for you in one easy short clip:

If you’re looking to simplify your makeup routine, eliminate the cluttered makeup drawers, and fit all your makeup into one versatile palette, Seint makeup is perfect for you. I love how it has completely simplified my makeup regimen and cut down the time it takes for me to get ready because all my makeup is in one place.

HOW DO YOU APPLY SEINT?

With a cream makeup, it’s important to prep the skin a little differently. A cream sits on the skin surface instead of absorbing into the skin and showing wrinkles and pores more.

The best way to get started with your Seint makeup is by getting a FREE COLOR MATCHThis is where I come in – I can tell you which Seint  cream foundation shades are right for you if you request a color match! Choose your shades of highlight, contour, and illuminator. Seint offers a variety of shades and a custom color match from me can assure confidence in the colors being chosen.

SELECT YOUR SHADES: This is where I come in with your customized color match – I can tell you which foundation shades are right for you if you request a color match! Choose your shades of highlight, contour, and illuminator. Seint offers a variety of shades and a custom color match from me can assure confidence in the colors being chosen.

PREP YOUR SKIN: You’ll need less here than you’re used to with liquid or powder. I recommend ONLY using moisturizer on dry patches, if you have any. Cream makeup keeps skin more hydrated than liquid/powder makeup. A serum (if not an oily serum) can work well, such as the Layers serum I’ve talked about as well as using a sunscreen for your skin type. If you need help finding one for your skin type, here’s a link to my Sunscreen Guide Blog linked here. If you use a sunscreen designed for your skin type and not just because you know it’s a good brand, it will work best.

IMPORTANCE OF SEINT BRUSHES:  Seint brushes are essential for achieving seamless and flawless makeup application. They are specifically designed to work with Seint’s cream-based products, ensuring optimal blending and precision.

*Personal noteI didn’t start out using Seint brushes. I can attest to how much these brushes do matter for cream makeup with Seint.

BEGINNERS FAVORITE BRUSHES FOR MY CLIENTS:  For beginner application, two must-have brushes are the Blend Brush and IIID Brush. The Blend Brush is perfect for blending multiple shades seamlessly, while avoiding excessive use of foundation while you adjust to using a cream makeup and getting comfortable with it. If you can only get one brush to begin with, I highly recommend getting the Blend brush as this is a great beginner brush! The IIID Brush will help with cream makeup blush application (using the big end of the brush) and if more coverage is desired, a light press with your final highlight color will finish out the look with perfection.

APPLY HIGHLIGHT:  Using your favorite Seint brushes (the Blend Brush is my preference for beginners), apply the color correcting highlight shade to areas of your face where extra coverage is needed for darker areas. Blend this out with your brushes after applying using a stippling motion to ensure a smooth and even application. Follow your color corrector by your main highlight shade, needed for the other areas of the face and finish application with the brightening highlight color if you would like to brighten key areas – this color is most like a “concealer.” These underlined shades are all included within your custom color match from me; the brightening highlight color is optional. Again, blend out your main and brightener in designated areas (according your color match) using your Seint brushes. Make sure to use stippling motions as you blend and watch the magic happen as your new cream makeup becomes a second skin.

APPLY CONTOUR:  Next, using the Blend Brush or IIID Brush, apply the contour shade to areas you’d like to add depth to or define, such as the hollows of your cheeks, along the jawline, the sides of your nose, and around the forehead. Blend this color out well to avoid harsh lines.

ADD BLUSH:  If you’ve chosen a blush shade, lightly apply it to the apples of your cheeks using the Seint IIID brush and stipple it out for a pop of color and added dimension. 

APPLY ILLUMINATOR:  Using the IIID Brush or your fingertips (depending on the area), apply the illuminator shade to the high points of your face where you want to add a subtle glow. This can be places such as the tops of your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, and the cupid’s bow above your lip.

SET IF NECESSARY:   If you have oily skin or want to extend the wear of your makeup, you can set the IIID Foundation with a light press of translucent powder using the Seint Powder Brush. This is optional – I personally feel if you use a sunscreen best for you skin type that helps most of all.

PRACTICE & EXPERIMENT:  Don’t be afraid to experiment with different application techniques and brushes to find what works best for you. Practice makes perfect! If you’re looking for different techniques, I have many examples on Instagram and YouTube.

ENJOY YOUR RADIANT LOOK:   Step back, admire your work, and enjoy your beautifully enhanced features with Seint IIID Foundation and your new favorite Seint brushes!

Remember, less is often more with Seint IIID Foundation. Start with a small amount of product and build up as needed for your desired coverage. Embrace the importance of Seint brushes in achieving a flawless makeup look, and have fun exploring and embracing your natural beauty!

HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT PALETTE SIZE TO BUY?

Layered Bob Hairstyle

layered bob haircut
layered bob haircut

The layered bob hairstyle you see is my most recent short hair cut by Chris Jones (@chrisjones_hair on Instagram). In the past, I’ve stuck to more of a textured bob hairstyle which is more of a blunt cut. This time we switched things up and at first I wasn’t loving it completely, but now I’m in love with the layered bob! Whether you go with a simple blowout style or jazz things up with some curls, the layers in this short hairstyle look beautiful. To see more about this cut by Chris, scroll to below! 

I always recommend doing solid research on hairstylists who specialize in the hair cut you’re looking to get. For example, in my case, I would need to be checking reviews of short hair stylists who have executed the layered bob, textured bob, or other short haircuts I’m looking to possibly get. Check their social media pages, reviews from previous clients online, and be clear with what short hairstyle you’d like once you’ve contacted them! 

 

Styling a Layered Bob Haircut

Since I’ve gotten home and been able to play around and style my new layered bob hairstyle on my own, I’ve found these four products by L’ange have done the trick: Glaze hair lotion, Sorbet smoothing balm, Posh hair polish, and Salt & Sea texturizing spray. This covers my bases for heat protectant, frizz reduction, and volume! To see how I use these products on a layered hairstyle for best results, see the video below!

Keep in mind, blow drying vs. air drying can make a huge difference in how your hair feels and holds up after styling. Using little to no product can leave your hair falling flat faster, but having too much product weigh your hair down too. Blow drying helps to spread the product evenly throughout your hair and will help give you volume, especially if you have or are going for a layered bob, or any short hairstyle for that matter.

Make sure to follow me on Instagram and Facebook if you’d like more hair tutorials – I’ve also got plenty on my YouTube channel! I hope this is most helpful for you in seeing and understanding this layered bob haircut/short hair style a little better and I hope you rock it out!

Skincare Guide Pt. 2 : Hyaluronic Acid & Gentle Facial Cleansers

On the daily, I work with women one on one to troubleshoot and understand their skincare and makeup.  Most of the time we deal with makeup and why they cannot get the look they want from it.  When it comes down to it, we always have to ask ourselves “what condition is the skin in?”  If you are someone who feels like you cannot get your skincare to where you want it to be or you don’t know where to start with skincare, here are two key things that we can start focusing on today: gentle cleansers & hyaluronic acid.

Importance of Gentle Cleansers & HA

In regards to gentle cleansers, are you using one?  There’s a good chance that your skin might be getting too worn out or mad at the cleansers you are using.  You want to have one that is gentle, especially if you have sensitive skin or are going through changes within your body (illness, allergies, menopause, etc.).  A gentle cleanser can make it a little easier on your skin and make all the difference in the world for your makeup!

That being said, some people do use gentle cleansers but are not noticing a change in their skin. Depending on your skin type, you might need just a little more TLC! One other thing you can introduce into your skincare routine is Hyaluronic Acid.  Hyaluronic Acid helps build up collagen as well as reduces fine lines and wrinkles.  It also does an excellent job of training your skin to retain moisture!

Gentle facial cleansers & hyaluronic acid skincare guide for Fit Mission Makeup blog post by Jocelyn McClellan SEINT artist

Having a gentle cleanser as well as Hyaluronic Acid &  just focusing on those two is a great place to start instead of incorporating a bunch of skincare all at once. It takes time for the skin to ease into it all so remember to add little by little to your skincare routine! Big changes to the skin can have big reactions but you can start with these two and see how your skin likes it. 

What changes should I expect in my skin?

Keep in mind these products within the guide are not all tried and true by myself but a lot of research went into finding solid gentle facial cleansers and hyaluronic acids. When researching, I chose products that were rated well & had trustworthy reviews.  I made sure to include medical grade & over the counter brands as well.  Don’t forget the importance to test out a gentle cleanser for 4-6 weeks before you give up on it…unless you are seeing a drastic sensitivity immediately. After implementing a gentle cleanser & hyaluronic acid into your skincare, the difference you should be noticing is your skin waking up and not feeling so dried out.  You should be achieving more of a natural glow within your skin. 

REMEMBER: These are just 2 key pieces to a solid skincare routine. If you have any serums or moisturizers that you love and you know your skin needs, keep using them! Having a gentle facial cleanser & a solid hyaluronic acid isn’t the only way to getting the skin you want, but they are two key components to a great skincare concoction! 

Are you someone who feels like this is the place where your skin needs to be at?  Make sure you comment on this blog post or email me with any questions that you may have at fitmissionmakeup@gmail.com.  We want to make sure your skin is happy so you can have better results with your SEINT makeup or any makeup for that matter; without setting the foundation of a good skincare routine, you will never be able to achieve the makeup look you are desiring. I’m here for you though and happy to help! For more details and tips on skincare or building a solid skincare regimen, make sure to check out my Skincare Guide here!

My Birthday Favorites

I hope you love these birthday favorites as much as I do! Everything you see in this blog post are some of my favorite finds, tried & true businesses, and more that would make for the perfect birthday gift for you or someone you love. I’ve thrown in a little something from everything…home, beauty, wellness & fashion and more. Whether you’re looking for a special something for mom, grandma, your sister, or ideas for yourself – these birthday favorites for sure be a winner! If you try them out or have any suggestions for me to try, leave a comment and I will for sure check them out!

Home & Lifestyle

birthday favorites

1. Turkish Towels: I love these because they’re way more compact than regular towels for on the go & sand doesn’t stick to them like a regular towel which makes it easier to take to the beach.  Not to mention, these are so cute!

2. Stonewall Kitchen: Holy crap- these are dangerous for me. I can’t get enough of their goodies! Seriously, if only you could see my pantry. Stonewall has sauces, marinades, jams, pancake mixes, you name it – it’s all gold!

3. Topanga Laundry Detergent:  I’m a huge lover of all things scents & when it comes to my laundry, I love a lingering scent of a good detergent but I never found what I wanted until the last few years. It’s not just a laundry detergent, it creates an emotion and is so memorable.  It is a luxury item so one cool thing about it is if you want it to last longer, you can take any unscented pod or liquid detergent and add a little bit to your Topanga detergent because truly a little bit goes such a long way in regards to scents!  

My favorite scents from Topanga are Hollywood + Vine (cedar, bergamot, black fig, woodsy, but not too masculine of a scent), Malibu Pier (very masculine, spicy, woodsy/musky), Bel-Air (floral, amber, patchouli, chocolate, reminds me of a detergent I found years ago called Diva Wash) and The Grove (very fruity, fresh, floral, sandalwood, citrus notes). Use code JOCELYN when purchasing!

4. 5 Minute Gratitude Journal:  I love this because at least I’m journaling something & it’s a pretty one you can put on the shelf to reflect on how far you’ve come every year! It’s not pictured in the graphic but I love it! This is a birthday favorite that could work for any occasion really.

5.  PhoneFin: I have tried so many different phone accessories that allow me to hold my phone easier as I love such an active lifestyle and work from my phone a ton, too – PhoneFin is one that I have come across and loved for a while now! I currently have another accessory on my phone and I can’t wait to switch it out with a PhoneFin because it just gets the job done!

6. Casetify: The thing I love most about these cases is that they are durable, available in a variety of customizable cases, and lots of fun designs/colors to choose from!

 

Beauty & Wellness

Jocelyn's Favorite Things, hydroflask, buxom lip gloss, sunset riot allsaints perfume

1. Buxom gloss in Samantha: This color is truly the best, especially if you have dry lips or just feel the need to have a solid gloss over your lip color.  It’s a great pinky-nude that adds just the right sine without taking away from the color you have there already.

2. Trigger Point Roller & Lacrosse Ball: Rolling truly helps my body everyday! Without it, my muscles are in so much pain; when I do roll out one side of my body’s muscles, I can feel which side of me is looser and working better vs which side is tighter.  Rolling muscles is something you have to ease into & make sure to ask a doctor first just in case! The Lacrosse ball is great for rolling smaller muscle areas like the feet, palms or to pinpoint smaller spots.  

3. Rechargeable Fan: Not only is this a birthday favorite, but it has been a must have in my purse, backpack, car, everywhere! I have multiple of them and have loved them since I bought them! They are not too big and not too small.  Plus, they are rechargeable!  

4. Water Bottles: I’m the type of girl who won’t get her water intake met unless she has a filled water bottle by her at all times.  I’ve searched high and low for a good water bottle that had a handle and didn’t leak and made it easier to haul around.  Here are a few of my faves: Simple Modern TumblerHydraPeak RoadsterStanley Flip Straw Tumbler, Hydro Flask Flex Cap Tumbler       

5. Sunset Riot by AllSaints: For me, one thing I look for in a perfume is a scent that is both masculine & feminine – AllSaints is just that. It’s one of my favorite things that I gift to others as well because it works for anybody truly!  I could best describe it as musky, hints of cedar wood, orange flowers & pink peppers yet it’s still fresh.

 

Fashion

Jocelyn's favorite things, nike air max, freepeople overalls, madewell ballcap, canty boots, freebird boots, booties, marc fisher, nordstrom

1. Nike Air Max: I recommend sizing up about a 1/2 size, but I love how comfy & stylish these are!  Definitely a shoe that stands out & gets attention.  You are not just wearing a regular running show with your jeans, you are styling up an outfit! 

2. Cowboy Boots: I’m a huge lover of Canty Boots; she takes old boots and restores them to become something new more like a booty instead of a boot.  I also love Marc Fisher booties (especially these in black and these in cream) & Freebird – they have my heart! 

3. Ball Caps: I love a good ball cap and here are a couple of my favorites from Madewell & Addidas. I love how a good, simple ballcap can change up an outfit and these are both good quality hats to have on hand. 

4. Burns Saddlery: These hats – I can’t stop & won’t stop wearing them! The quality is rock solid; you can customize your hat so it is a little hard for me to quote a price on that but if you are wanting a REAL cowboy hat, this is the place to go! 

5. FreePeople Overalls: These overalls are one of my favorite pairs right now!  I love all the fun colors they come in and are very true to size.  I did do a dryer test and they do indeed shrink a bit but not too much – might be something to consider! 

6. Levi’s Jean Shorts: Last but not least, these shorts! I love them so much that I bought them in multiple colors – so fun and the perfect length for someone like me with long legs. Not to mention, they’re the great quality that Levi’s gives so definitely worth trying out if you’re on the hunt for some solid denim shorts!

L’ange Hair Care Guide

Something for EVERYONE!

Featured photo for L'ange Hair Care Guide blog post for FitMissionMakeup

I’m so happy you’re here and excited to focus on L’ange, haircare, and showing you a guide to L’ange products I love! I wanted to make this the focus I hear back from customers sometimes about the way they aren’t loving the L’ange products but usually it’s HOW we’re using them that makes all the difference in whether we love them or not & whether we got the right ones or not. It’s also super important to always keep in mind that what works for some may not work for others! If you’re new here, one thing I stress often is the understanding that everyone’s hair is different & what works for one person may not work for another. Listen to your hair! Don’t be afraid to experiment with it to find what it likes best. That being said, I’ve put this guide together and regularly keep it updated with the products I’m currently using and how I use them. I have also taken care to include products I recommend for different hair goals as well as hair types. Keep scrolling for more details!

One awesome thing about the L’ange website is they now have the option to take a hair care quiz; this makes it so you can find out which products L’ange experts recommend for your hair type. I’m also always here and just an email away if you need recommendations for products. Make sure to comment below if you’d like help choosing the right L’ange products for you! Let me know your hair needs, whether it’s dry, oily, curly, straight, etc. and what your style goals are. I’m happy to help always!

Jocelyn's L'ange hair care favorites and how she uses them

Below is a little breakdown for you including products you can try before blow drying to help your styles:

For fine hair & before blow drying:
Glaze hair lotion (adds protection, moisture & volume)
Sorbet leave-in conditioner (helps with humidity as well)
Thermal Magique (for heat protection; it’s not my top fave but the Posh might weigh your hair down a bit if you have thin hair. Very SMALL amount to be used)
Salt & Sea spray (texturizing spray)

For medium-fine hair before blow drying:
Glaze hair lotion (adds protection, moisture, & volume)
Sorbet leave-in conditioner (helps with humidity as well)
Posh (for heat protection only near midshafts – ends of hair)
Salt & Sea spray (texturizing spray)

For thick hair before blow drying:
Glaze hair lotion (adds protection, moisture, & volume)
Sorbet (helps with frizz and tames the hair)
Posh (for heat protection and keeps it more sleek)

**For naturally curly/wavy hair:
Envie leave-in conditioner (apply when hair is wet/damp and diffuse or air dry), Manage Marula Oil hydrating spray, and Glaze hair lotion (for frizz control and softness/hydration)
or
Sorbet leave-in conditioner (apply same as above)

**Keep in mind for naturally curly/wavy hair less is most definitely more to bring out those natural styles without weighing down the hair or leaving it feel full of product/crunchy! Allow the hair to air dry if you opt out of diffusing it with a blow dryer.

These add ins to your hair (before blow drying) can make the biggest difference for your hairstyle. You’re helping it create volume, control, texture and more. It is so important to get something in your hair to help it & this will make a big difference for your hair!

Make sure to test out amounts in your hair as it can vary depending on your hair! The testing time is so important and that is where you’ll find your favorite hair products/the right amount to use for you before blow drying.

Demi Colour

Demi Colour makeup

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! 

Demi model

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?

Model in Demi Colour makeup by Seint

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.

Demi

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

Seint makeup brushes for Demi Colour

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?

Jocelyn McClellan wearing Demi Colour by Seint

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.

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!

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!
