Glamorize Your Eyes: September Product Feature

Holiday MakeupNow is a great time to start incorporating a new makeup look as we say “goodbye” to summer and “hello” to the holiday season!

I love making subtle yet surprising changes to my makeup so that I feel fresh without putting a ton of effort into my already-packed morning routine.

For the month of September our Youngblood Eye Makeup will inspire new looks while earning double Rewards for treatment Enhancements!

gel Liner

With Youngblood Mineral Eye Makeup I can keep my colors and techniques up to date by using one of their highly pigmented gel liners instead of the usual black or brown. My favorite color to do this with is Midnight Sea (Lagoon is pictured). Adding a deep blue (or any of their other saturated colors) to your go-to looks can make a simple lined eye go from the expected to the unexpected.

 

Another way to keep things simple yet new is to add an eyeshadow quad to your makeup bag. At Star Brows we love the convenience of having four colors in the same space and creating different combinations to go with any outfit or occasion.

Linda and I are very excited about Youngblood’s newest holiday quad, called Glamour-Eyes, which is filled with rich gemstone colors. We also love our tried and true go-to quads like Timeless and Starlet.

Mineral Radiance Creme Powder Foundation

This formula is the newest in Youngblood’s foundation lineup. We still use Pressed and Loose Minerals and are looking to add their Moisture Tint – they have so many great choices we can offer youminerals!

It’s got a luminous, powdery finish that feels amazing. I love using it with the Liquid Foundation Brush! It goes on silky-smooth, is long lasting, and the shades blend perfectly. Peptides and other nutrients help to soothe redness and Green Algae keeps the skin hydrated.
It is suitable for all skin types, but ideal for normal to dry skin. Mature clients, like myself, adore this skin brightening, hydrating, and soothing makeup!
Try it next time you’re in!

Youngblood Lips: June Product Feature 2013

Liips-Product-Category-Header

Kelli JuneHi! It’s Kelli, bringing you this month’s Product Feature.

With spring in full bloom, it’s no wonder we’re all feeling inspired to feel fresh and look pretty! Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics’ lip products are a simple way to update your look without having to put a lot of extra effort into your appearance.

6_18My personal favorite is the lipstick color Rosewater, the newest pink hue we carry at the spa. It’s beautiful and a happy medium between sophisticated and young. I’ve noticed a lot of brides leaning toward the softer pink tones, and this one photographs perfectly!

lip-liner-pencil_2The Brow Boss loves to show off perfect brows with the right lip-treatment. Her top choice for the longest-wearing lip color is the Lip Pencils. The technique involves completely filling in the lips and then applying Mineral-based Lipstick or Luminous Creme Blush over the pencil. Her favorite color is Blushing Nude, a nice blend of classic and modern that can be worn for any occasion.

We both love playing around with our Youngblood lip products to customize the color for every age, comfort level, and skin tone. The possibilities are endless.

And with the Double Rewards you get for purchasing our Monthly Product Feature, you are one step closer to adding on an amazing treatment Enhancement to your next appointment while looking stunning! 02.24.2012b580e_lipgloss (1)

Felicia’s Fabulous Finds: Crushed Mineral Eye Shadow

Hi, it’s Felicia again, guest blogger at Star Brows! Are you tired of boring, neutral, everyday makeup? Do your eye shadow options go from beige to brown, and that’s about it? Do you want to spice up your look for work or school without feeling like a clown? And like me, are you concerned about using chemicals on your skin? Well look no further! The ingenious makers of Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics have come up with 100% crushed minerals and highly pigmented eye shadows in a myriad of fun, but classic colors.

I had the pleasure of working with the shade Heather Smoke. It has a lovely satin finish, which makes the color muted enough for daytime, but it can be layered for more intensity or used wet for as much drama as you need.

I love that it isn’t packed with synthetic fillers and chemicals like over-the-counter brands. And ingredients like honeysuckle flower extract and jojoba seed extract make it gentle on the eye area. In fact, when I look at the Youngblood company page, each product listed has a set of attributes. For instance, this formula is fragrance free, water resistant, oil free, vegan (made without animal by-products), and paraben free.

I’d describe Heather Smoke as a rich satiny violet. This color looks great washed over your lids, which helps brighten the eye and makes you look more awake.  I usually use a primer under my shadow, however when I swatched Heather Smoke with a couple of other purples for comparison, it stayed on so well, even after I rubbed off the others. So, Yb Shadow may make me reconsider this step!

Try this look:

Apply it with a small, flat shadow brush across your lids and the inner corner of your eye.

Follow up with a matte brown shade blended into the crease.

Add a hint of white under your brows as a highlight.

Next, apply your choice of black or dark brown liner. (If you really want to mix it up, hunter green looks really flattering with Heather Smoke on hazel and brown eyes.)

Finish the look with some black mascara, a light dusting of blush and bronzer to keep up your fresh glow, and a quick swipe of pink gloss on the lips.

This gives you a fun, fresh look for everyday without going over the top.

Transform this look to evening:

Apply the shadow wet for more drama across the lids and up into the crease

Deepen the outer corners a little more with a matte brown

A nude lip goes really well with this look, and with an extra coat of black mascara, you will be ready for a night out! So there you have it – a fun flattering shade for both day and night that goes on smooth and lasts until you are ready to take it off.

Obsessed with makeup! Felicia

 

Youngblood Mineral Foundation – August Product Feature 2012

This month we feature our three  silky, natural-looking, and flawless mineral foundations from Youngblood: Natural Loose, Pressed Powder, and the new Mineral Radiance Creme Powder. What a lineup!

“Granting women the power to conceal and correct imperfect complexions has always been the mission of Pauline Youngblood, founder and president of Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics. Pauline draws inspiration from nature as well as her own practical experience as a paramedical aesthetician to dermatologists and plastic surgeons.”

Having been a Youngblood devotee for over a decade, I can vouch for the performance of these foundations for all skin types. Not only do they offer protection from UV rays and environmental stressors, but the range of coverage, from light to full, and  the natural pigments used are amazing as well.

If you’re new to Star Brows, you may not know about The Product Feature or Rewards yet. To put it simply, 10% of all your product purchases, all the time, go toward free Service Enhancements, like Raindrop Therapy, Lash Tint, Chemical Peels, or Star Massage.

When a product is the Monthly Feature, however, you’ll get 20% back in Rewards! Foundations range in price from $42-$56, with Rewards points totaling $8-$11. 🙂

See you at the spa!
