In this week's Bella Beauty Tip, we learn how to apply mineral makeup with ease, and our editor, Annie, recommends some of her favorite mineral makeup brands: Lancôme, Alima Pure, and Youngblood. Now, go forth and powder!
Last week, I introduced you to a fabulous new brand of mineral based makeup called Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics. Since I've just gotten a sneak peek at its new Fall Sommelier Collection that is due out sometime in mid-September, I thought I'd share it with you. The products are inspired by the lush green and grape-filled vineyards of California. The colors are richly pigmented blushes and burgundies which we know are trendy for Autumn. The three mineral-based items in the line are
I love fall colors, especially when they look good on a variety of women (as these do). A toast to Youngblood, I say.
For those of you who are really embracing all of the new mineral cosmetics on the market, here's a brand I think you're going to love! Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics was created by Pauline Youngblood Soli, who worked in as an esthetician for dermatologists and plastic surgeons trying to help those with problem skin. She realized that non-comedogenic mineral based makeup products were not readily available to patients with special cosmetic needs, so she set out to create her own line.
Today, Youngblood has a full range of products for eyes, cheeks, face, lips. What makes this brand even better is its functional packaging. You can either buy individual full-sized products, customize your own palette, or buy one of their fabulous pre-packaged Artiste Palettes ($74.95).
And if you really like to keep things simple, there's the super-small Artiste On the Go palette ($25) that contains three removable colors in one slim monocase. See what I mean? This brand's got something for everybody!
