For the last few months I’ve been using mainly Younique for both skincare and makeup. I was ready for a switch, I’m a girl who loves to find something new after using the same product for years. But I honestly am happier with how the skincare is working for me than what I was previously using. I only use three of the items right now for my nightly skincare routine, and it’s super quick to apply!

I made a video showing you the skincare items and then I showed you what makeup I use and applied it on the video. It ended up being a little long, so just skip through if you don’t want to see certain spots.

It’s been awhile since I made a video and I ended up looking at the wrong spot for the camera on my phone. Ha! I would love to redo the video but I just don’t have time, so this is not perfect. 🙂

Here is my disclaimer – I’m not a professional by any means at putting on makeup! I’m sure I do quite a few steps wrong, but it’s just what has worked for me!

My other disclaimer – I’m not looking to create a big business with Younique. I was hesitant to even try a MLM makeup company because I knew blog readers might think I’m trying to just start another business. Nope! I’d love to stay a consultant just for the discount for myself, but I really did try this after seeing friends use it online for months and loving the before and after pictures.

After using several Younique products for a few months I finally just ordered the kit last year, so I could have more products to choose from. That’s how I have all the products I do without totally going broke all at once. 😉

Here is my before and after. You can see in the before picture that my skin is blotchy and broke out in my cheeks, and in the after picture it’s covered nicely. That’s why I LOVE the foundation!!

If I was just starting out I would for sure get the foundation. It’s the item that made me fall in love with Younique! The skincare items are my next favorite, then the concealer, and while I didn’t talk about it in the video, I love the lipstick! They are very creamy and moisturizing.

I’m going to giveaway a lip gloss to one of you! I have an extra lip gloss that I won’t be using, so I thought it would be fun to share!  This is for USA only, and I’m going to keep it simple! To enter, go to the Younique website, look around and tell me what interests you! Leave a comment below.

The giveaway will stay open until Thursday, February 1st!

 

 

 

 

27 Comments on My new skincare and makeup routine (and a giveaway!)

  1. The Cream eyeshadow looks inviting and has alot of colors. That would be my first choice. The lip gloss is second choice. I’m a sucker for pretty colors!

  2. In the time I’ve been reading your blog, it seems you’ve mentioned several different makeup lines. I remember Cowgirl Dirt or something and then one other and then this one. Do you like Younique the best? You look very nice. My experience with Younique is that the consultants really pack on the makeup. You look very natural.

    • Like I said, I’m not one to stick with one makeup for all of my life. I did like Cowgirl Dirt for awhile, but then honestly I just kept experimenting and trying new things out. This has been the latest thing I’ve tried now for several months and I really like how well it covers. I don’t pack on the makeup, I just try to use it for a natural look but that covers blemishes. So far I like several of the Younique items the best. The foundation is fantastic! I don’t use the mascara and I really don’t like it. The eye shadow pallets are not my favorite, but I like the individual eye shadows that I’ve been using.

      • Thanks! I need some new make-up and I’m just so overwhelmed at all the choices. I hear about something new about every week! Thanks for your review.

  3. Fun! I’m interested in the foundation since I feel like what I use always wears off after several hours. It looks great on you

  4. Gorgeous! I love the natural look as well! I like to use tickled from palette 3 as my blush because I’m cheap. The Younique product I want to try is the Opulence lipstick! What color do you like best?

  5. The lipsticks and the mineral skin perfecting concealer look fun to try! Your makeup looks beautiful and very natural…it’s hard finding good quality makeup and the right matches for your skin tone!

  6. I’m always looking for a foundation that works with my sensitive, acne prod skin, that doesn’t look caked on, but covers imperfections nicely.

  7. Fun! I think the B.B. cream looks neat. I like that this company lists the ingredients front and center for you to see. Thanks for doing a giveaway.
