Clean & Healthy Skin - the best canvas!

Younique skincare is packed with natural goodness from plant extracts and formulated to deliver amazing benefits! I love all the products but here are three of my all-time favourites:
*The lip exfoliator, which I actually carry around with me in my bag,
**the toner spray which I use not just for toning but also for blending and applying the powder and cream eyeshadows (wetting the brush applicator makes the colours go one much more vividly) and
***the detoxifying mask which I use at least twice a week. The bamboo charcoal oxygenates the skin and removes toxins. It also has a gentle exfoliating action and I love how my skin looks after every application!



The full range of skin care.

A clean healthy skin looks great even without too much make up.

Younique Makeup Demo

Talented make up artist Izzy Cammareri did a demo using all Younique products. Starting off with a clean canvas.

First, we apply some Touch Glorious Primer for a nice, smooth start. This velvety soft primer preps your skin for makeup coverage that will stay porcelain-perfect all day long.


Next is the foundation. We made a cocktail of Touch Mineral liquid foundation and the BB Flawless complexion enhancer to give added moisture. A few drops on the special applicator brush and blend away for a smooth start with this ultrathin, skin-perfecting liquid formula.


Next is some Touch Mineral Skin Perfecting Concealer for covering any imperfections. Can also be used as a primer for eyeshadow.


Everything gets blended using a blending sponge and Royalty Rose Water Toning Spritz. You’ll absolutely love the skin you’re in after just a spray or two of this floral, invigorating toner. Created with rose extract, vitamins, and antioxidants, Rose Water Toning Spritz will leave your skin feeling fresh, calmed, and soothed.


Contouring is so popular these days. And made really easy with the Sculpting Trio. Three blendable, buildable products for a sculpted and contoured finish. You can see that this one has been well loved!


For brows on fleek, nothing compares to Moodstruck Precision Brow Gel and Liner Set!


Today the eyeshadow is for an evening look. Moodstruck Addiction Shadow Palette #4 and #5 creates dramatic eyes!


Some necessary definition with a quick flick of the Moodstruck Precision Liquid Eyeliner.


Finishing the eyes with the amazing Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+ Mascara. See up to a 500% increase in average volume* with your first coat—and you don’t have to stop there. Whether you’re feeling subtle or sassy, defiant or classy, the new Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+ will help you go wherever your mood takes you.


Lining the lips with Moodstruck Precision Pencil Lip Liner. These are long-wearing, waterproof, smudge-proof Precision Pencils that help get the perfect pout!


And a Sizzling dash of matte colour with Splash Liquid Lipstick!


The Model and the Artist! Thank you both!

Younique Look - Shanu

I wanted to try Younique products on Shanu. She has a beautiful dark pigmentation but I always find that most cosmetic brands are woefully inadequate when it comes to catering to dark skin. Not so with Younique. Their foundation colours matched beautifully. We went with the BB Cream in Caramel. The eyes were done with the Younique Moodstruck Minerals Pigment Powders in Crushed and innocent. Liquid eyeliner and 3D mascara added the finishing touch to the eyes. The face got some highlights and contouring with the Sculpting Trio, and then a light dusting of the Translucent setting powder. Voila!

But I should not forget the best part! The Splash Liquid Lipstick in Stubborn! Possibly my most loved product from the Younique range of cosmetics right now. It brightens every looks so dramatically! They are highly pigmented yet weightless liquid lipsticks. Amazing matte finish.

These are now my new go-to accessory. These rich lipsticks make me feel brave and bold (and hydrated!) all day long. Special ingredients and vitamins C and E seal in hydration, and a mousse texture and wax-free formula mean my lips look smooth and filled in where ever the day takes me.

Exfoliate and hydrate lips with the Moodstruck Lip Exfoliator (a must have, IMO). Define bottom lip with tip of applicator. Fill in lip with wide side of applicator. Repeat for top lip. Intensify color with multiple applications, allowing to set for one minute between applications.
