Fresh and Natural Face with Youngblood #YBCosmetics

Press Samples. All opinions are my own.
Hello, Fireflies!

When I hear the words, "mineral cosmetics," my first association is usually, "messy."  I avoided them for a long time because I didn't know how to use them, I didn't want to deal with the packaging. And, I was missing out.  There is so much more to Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics!

One of my obsessions is eyeshadow palettes.  Pressed *mineral* eyeshadows? Yes! And, they are fantastic.  Buttery, soft, pigmented, and blendable.  No mess.  Very little kickup or fallout.  I got to try the Youngblood Glamour Eyes Eyeshadow Quad, and I love the look I created!

All of the shadows have a sheen to them, with the darkest brown being the most matte, and perfect for the crease or outer V.  The lightest blue is very icy and makes for a great inner corner highlight.  Either the medium blue or the coppery brown would make a nice lid color.

I used all four colors in this look, and I added the Youngblood Cobalt Mascara, too.  The blue really pops against a brown or coppery lid.
 I also tried out the Youngblood Mineral Blush in Tulip, a pearlescent baby pink.

Although this one is a loose blush, they also make versions that are pressed, cremes, and ones paired with bronzers and highlighters in compacts. I did have a little trouble with this sifter - once you get some of the product out, there's no place for the excess to go.

Tulip wears almost like a highlighter on me.  It's such a light pink with a lot of silver shimmer.  I can't build it up too much, or the shimmer becomes too much.  This is great for a natural light flush, or for layering with another blush for a deeper color.

I'm really happy with how this look came together!  It feels very fresh and pretty.  Here's everything I used to complete this look:

What I used:  Youngblood Cobalt Mascara, Glamour Eyes Eyeshadow Quad, and Crushed Mineral Blush in Tulip, It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation SPF 50+, UD Original eyeshadow primer, Billion Dollar Brows Universal Brow Pencil, Laura Geller icare Waterproof eyeliner in Aquamarine, and Mally Lip Lacquer in Mulberry.
Since my earlier review of the Youngblood Cobalt mascara, I wanted to play with it and some color theory.  Blue and orange are supposed to work well together - if you have blue eyes, orange tones should make them look even bluer.  I paired the blue mascara with a warm copper shimmery shadow pencil, and I loved the combination!
After trying more Youngblood makeup, I just want to try even more! They have a full catalog of cosmetics - everything from primer to remover, and all the color you need in between.

Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics was developed by a medical aesthetician, to give those with damaged skin a natural makeup option.  You can find more information on their full line of makeup on their website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and Pinterest.
