First off, sorry for the MIA lately. My aunt recently got married and I was her photographer so I was worried about that and everything. But now the wedding is over, they are married and it is time to get back to the second thing I love...
This particular post is a little bit different, because it is mainly beauty. But it is still fashion, so i am keeping it under this tab.
Today's topic? Make-up!
Or more specifically, the make-up that I buy (and sell!). It is called Younique. Some of y'all may have heard of it and some of y'all might not have. It is a new company, we are only about two years old (we will turn 3 in September of this year), but we already have a ton of presenters. Holy moly! Can you believe that?! The company was started by brother and sister, Derek Maxfield and Melanie Huscroft. Their mission when they first started this was to help empower women and uplift them. And that is still what they aspire do now. They want women to feel at home in their own skins and I truly believe that this is what they (we) are doing today. The make-up they created is so younique (hehe. See what I did there?), that everything is healthy and natural based. They wanted to create something that did the skin good and not harm.
Me personally, I have been apart of this company since October, and I have loved it ever since. I bought the product before I decided to sell it and even now, this is the only make-up I use as of late because I am in love with it.
Our biggest seller is our Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes, which is our mascara. It is insane! I first bought it in October from my mom's best friend's daughter-in-law, and fell in love with it. Only mascara I use now. There are two tubes in the one (cute) case. The first one is called Transplanting Gel, and in this tube there are only 9 ingredients, which are ALL healthy. The second tube is the Fibers, which is just one ingredient. That's a total of 10 ingredients, all in which are nature based.
Fun fact: Did you know that most mascaras have a harmful drug that can increase the chance of cancer?
With this mascara, we don't want to put anyone at risk for that so say hello to mascara made from Mother Nature.
Even on days when I don't wear any make-up, I always have on this mascara because it really does make any one's eyes pop. The best part? It is water-proof and sweat-proof. I have worn this mascara when I've been camping and when I've been running through a storm to get to my car, and my lashes were still perfect.
But what fun would that be if all I did was talk about mascara?
Now seeing as I use Younique on basically my entire face, my must-have product from them for my morning routine is the 'Glorious Face and Eye Primer'. This thing is so comfortable. It's like putting a fluffy cloud on your face. What I really like is that I've used several primers over the years that I've worn make-up and so far this is the one that works the best for me.
And if I'm following my whole routine to a T, then next is my foundation and powder, both, of course, are Younique brand. For my foundation, it is the Touch Mineral Cream one in the shade of Taffeta, and the powder is the Touch Mineral Powder of the same shade.
For my eyes, most of the time I just the mascara because I don't like a whole ton of stuff on my eyes because they're sensitive (FUN FACT: Our make-up is natural so my eyes don't hurt with the mascara and eye pigments on!). But when I do want that extra bit of pop, I will gladly go to my make-up bag and pull out my numerous Moodstruck Mineral Pigments, which are our eye-shadows. I love the colors because some of them are so bright and really pop and others are definitely ones for daily use or smokey eyes.
One of the best parts about buying from Younique is that you can purchase products in sets or collections so you can get a number of products for a slightly higher cost. We actually just got new collections in and the bags they come in are too cute! You can check them out here.
We don't just sell our make-up products though. We sell the tools you would need as well. Everything from our super soft foundation brush and blending buds to our handy pencil sharper and make-up removing wipes.
With Spring and Summer coming up quickly, I am so excited for more road-trips and beach bonfires, and you can better believe that I will be rockin' my lashes every day.
If you want to order something from me, host a virtual party, become a presenter or whatever! Get in contact with me and I will answer any questions that I can.
Until next time my lovelies!
