Beauty Edit- Younique

younique beauty and a simple makeup routineHappy hump day y’all!

I’m back with another beauty post 🙂

This has been my go-to work and school look. It’s simple, and really natural looking.

I was able to try out some Younique products and let me just say, I was shocked!

My mom used to sell Arbonne, and I knew people that sold Mary Kay. After being a huge sephora addict, I never believed in those products sold from home through independent companies. My cousin sells Younique and wanted me to try a few products, and I was shocked… SHOCKED at the quality.

After I applied my normal foundation, blush, and bronzer…. we get into the fun stuff.

brows to go

The brow products I used were the Younique Moodstruck Precision Brow pencil as well as the gel. The pencil is amazing, and the color matched me perfectly. It is SUPER comparable to the Anastasia Brow Wiz, and I live and breathe her brow products, so to see another one that is very similar was a very happy moment haha. beauty palette younique eyeshadow palette

This Addiction Shadow Palette makes me so happy. I’m a neutral shadow kind of girl. This one is extremely portable, light, and has the perfect neutral shades to choose from. If I have the time to do my eye shadow in the morning, I love to use every.single.shade. seriously!! I start with the second and third one, and put them all over my lid. I then go down the line of each of the brown shades and blend them into my crease, starting with a fluffy brush and then a more concise one to define my crease. After, I like to add the first cream colored shade on my brow bone, then take the deep brown across my lower lash line. It creates such a beautiful soft look, perfect for every day.

So eyes? check. We still need our lashes though! And I have a NEW favorite. I used to swear by the Chanel Le Volume Mascara… which is $80 (so crazy… but I still buy it lol) and then I was introduced to the Younique 3D Fiber Lashes. Literally… omg.. throw those fake lashes away ladies, you don’t need them anymore. The concept is super cool and leaves you with a stunning result.

You start with the gel, apply a few coats of that, then top that with the fibers. The fibers define and add thickness and volume to your lashes. Apply another coat of the gel on top of the fibers, again to secure them. I do this on both top and bottom lashes! My lashes literally touch my eyebrows. I love it so much! Every time I do a dramatic makeup look I always grab my Younique 3D Fiber Lashes. fiber lashes to die formakeup for the average day

The only downside to these lashes, is the fiber fall out. When I’m applying, a lot usually fall onto my cheeks. But your powder brush saves the day! Just sweep it across your face and they’re gone, thank goodness!

For this look, I decided to add a bright lip. That’s the look! I hope y’all enjoyed and will take a look into Younique. You can access the products through my cousins website here

Here are some of the products I used:

    I have been so interested in trying to fiber lashes.
    I am definitely not a fake eyelash girl so I’d love to achieve the look without actually having to put on false lashes.

    xoxo, Jenny

    I’ve heard of fiber lashes, but never really tried them out. Maybe I’ll experiment with them because I need all the help I can in the lashes department!
