SEINT was founded by Cara Brook, a makeup artist and blogger. At 11 years old, she could tell that there was a problem with the beauty industry. She tackled this problem with a 5th grade science fair project that aimed to simplify the beauty routine. Even though the project itself was a bust, she never gave up on the idea that the beauty industry could be revolutionized. Years later, as the creator of the beauty blog Maskcara, she could see that instead of making women feel more beautiful, the beauty industry had a tendency to make them feel more insecure by convincing them that they needed more products and more rules to abide by in order to attempt an impossible standard. She knew she wanted to create something no one had done before. Her goals were to celebrate every type of natural beauty, share simple and useful tips, and create quality, innovative products that could be used by every woman, no matter her age or complexion or level of experience.
In 2013, Maskcara Beauty was born. Founded on the principle that “helping others look beautiful is nice, but helping them believe they are beautiful is life-changing,” their IIID products were created to redefine, simplify, and streamline the beauty routine. Armed with determination in heart and customizable palette in hand, the makeup revolution had begun. This uniquely intuitive and personalized approach has inspired thousands of women to recognize and celebrate their own beautiful, gain confidence, and radiate positivity. They introduced the Artist program in 2017, bringing the opportunity to “have your cake and eat it, too” to those who caught the vision and felt inspired to share Maskcara’s products and vision with the world.
As the Maskcara brand has grown, they have seen the way that beauty truly connects to each other. Recognizing and enhancing the beauty that already exists in every face has always been the brand’s inspiration, so they are thrilled to announce that in 2020 Maskcara Beauty is changing its name to Seint to better reflect its purpose. This change is inspired by the 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, they believe that they don’t just make or create beauty; they recognize, nurture, and preserve it. Like all good things, beauty matters. Spelled in the traditional old French to honor the intrinsic value of the word, Seint represents the dedication to helping others look beautiful and believe they are beautiful. Because beauty is not a creation; it is a passion.
