Geek-ify your Makeup: Younique Makeup

I have something new and different on the site today! Still geeky and fun and can definitely be used in the future. I was no way offered anything to do this piece, but wanted to share a friend's venture with makeup with you all! I wanted to get this post up much earlier, but I did not want to rush in. I wanted to have it be something worth sharing, I wanted to give it a chance. I have yet to really know anything about makeup, what I did know was that San Diego Comic Con was right around the corner and wanted to offer ideas for those of you that love makeup! I asked my friend Amy if she wanted to join me and put a piece together, after a few messages here it is! 

Amy is a presenter with a makeup brand called Younique. I wanted to collaborate with her and her venture with the makeup. I always see tutorials or things that look impossible to do. This is a fun article sharing a bit about Amy, and some styles she wanted to share with us. I have been wanting to know more about makeup and how to geek my look and look confident doing it. So what better way, then to get started with friends?

Can you tell us a bit about Younique makeup & why you choose to be a presenter & sell their merchandise? At first I was just going to be a “Kitnapper” as I needed a change with my makeup. But then I saw the Y-sisterhood and products were so much more. Younique has a strong mission, which is one of the many reasons I joined the company. The products sell themselves since they are that great and the main reason is it has brought confidence back in my life. Now I help others that need the confidence. It truly is inspiring and rewarding to know Younique helps uplift, empower, and validate women & I am a part of it!

What makes Younique makeup different from other name brands out there? Younique has all naturally based products. They also have Gluten Free and Vegan products. Younique is cruelty free and each purchase has an option to help donate money to support the abused women foundation.

What are some products that Younique offers that can help with a look for any upcoming comic cons? Younique offers many options for comic con makeup such as Moodstruck Mineral Pigment Eyeshadows in Shimmer or Matte, Moodstruck Precision Pencil Eyeliner, Moodstruck Precision Liquid Eyeliner, 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara, Moodstruck Lipstick, Stiff Upper Lip Stains, and whatever else your imagination creates.

Here are some geeky looks created by some of the Younique products, can you show us some how-to with some of your favorite heroes?  When using Moodstruck Mineral Pigments I used Rose Water to give it a foil look. The wonderful thing about Rose Water is it can be used for so many different things. I will be giving some examples. I used the Rose Water for the eyeshadows to give it a brighter and more vibrant look. In order to use the pigments for eyeliner you just spray once into the lid of the eyeshadow and use the Liner/Shader brush to apply.

For Captain America, we used Pristine Moodstruck Precision Pencil Eyeliner in the corner of the eye and Perfect Moodstruck Precision Liquid Eyeliner to line the top of the eye. We used Rose Water and the Awestruck pigment for the bottom eyeliner.

For Wolverine, we used the Precarious Moodstruck Precision Liquid Eyeliner and then the bottom liner we used the Awestruck Moodstruck Mineral Pigment Eyeshadow. Please check out the pictures for the Moodstruck Mineral Pigment eyeshadows used for each super hero.

This makeup can be used for adults or children for any occasion but in these pictures we used them to represent comic con.

What is your favorite product[s] and why? I fell in LOVE with the Liquid foundation Younique offers as it is so light feeling on my face! I only have to use 5 drops, which covers my entire face! The bottle lasts for months and I don’t have to reapply later in the day! I have never purchased this kind of Quality makeup before! It’s truly amazing! It isn’t too expensive either. There are ways to earn discounts or free makeup by hosting a party. So many rewards with Younique!

If people want to make a purchase and or get in contact with you where can they find you? 

What is a good piece of advice or words of wisdom that you have received since selling Younique makeup? I have learned that ANYONE can feel beautiful, look beautiful, and be beautiful inside and out. You just have to believe in yourself and then everyone will believe in you!
Amy thank you for your time and sharing your makeup venture here on the site. I loved the looks, and the best part, the makeup can be used on adults and children! I see a purchase of the Mineral Pigments in my future!
