The Younique way


I haven’t done a beauty post in quite awhile; I get many questions about my skin care, makeup and even about my hair. If there were something specific you guys would love to see, let me know! I kept thinking about what I wanted to share with you guys, so why not some products I’ve recently tested and have loved!

I was extremely fortunate to try some amazing Younique products. My best friend, Ashley, is a Younique presenter! She is SO passionate about their products. Quite frankly, when you see people endorsing products they are selling, you naturally think its a gimmick. I know Ashley on a personal level, so I know she would never sell anything she doesn’t believe in- which is why I wholeheartedly believe in Younique, perhaps if it wasn’t for her, I, too would think was just a marketing scheme. Her Facebook page Lash with Ash, does wonders! She posts videos on how to wear makeup daily, to even fun more daring makeup ideas, and a bunch of helpful tricks and tips! It’s honestly great to see your best friend get so creative and develop in her make-up skills, its every girls dream!

When I asked Ashley about the mascara, she was SO sweet to send me some products she knew I’d love. She knows my love for mascara and matte lipsticks runs deep, so she sent me two lip stains and the famous 3D fiber mascara. She also knew, that more than makeup, I am crazy about skin care. She also sent me the uplift eye serum.

Everyone has seen the crazy results with the 3D Fiber mascara. It is phenomenal. I have so many people always ask me if my lashes are real- indeed real! This mascara does wonders. It is a process to apply and you kind of have to master it and figure out what works for you, but once you do, you’re good to go! If you are in the market for some crazy length – this mascara is definitely for you! I’ll insert a close up- so you guys can see results of the mascara.IMG_8129

 The uplift eye serum has to be hands down my favorite product! I have really dry under eyes, I think with age (ha, yes almost in my 30’s – I said almost) and with all the concealer I cake on, my under eye area gets extremely dry, and this has been the first product that has diminished that completely. Even in these cold temps, I never feel my under eye crease anymore or feel rough from the dryness, which has been a miracle! It really tightens and moisturizes the entire eye area. It also aims to diminish any eye wrinkles. This will be a regular part of my skin care regime. I am absolutely obsessed! If you do not try anything else with Younique, you NEED to try this!

Onto to the lip stains. I haven’t tried many but these lip stains are LIFE! The colors are so nice and natural looking and I love the finish. It is so different from a matte lipstick, it truly enhances your own lip color, a much more comfortable wear, and of course they last for hours! They go on liquid and dry to nice semi matte finish. The best way to apply is let the first coat dry, and add another coat. I love how it never gets on your teeth too! The two colors I have are Sleek- which is a darker brown/plum color I opted for winter (all that Kylie rage) and Shy is this gorgeous red/pinkish tone that gives this just bitten look- which I absolutely adore.


Sleek is to the left, and Shy is the one on the right.
