Amazing Makeover with Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics

Hola! If you followed me on my social media, bet you noticed I've changed my Facebook profile picture. Isn't my new profile pic makeup is gorgeous? So I was introduced to a premier luxury mineral cosmetics line exclusively made in California, USA recently. Founded by paramedical aesthetician, Pauline Youngblood in 1996, Youngblood® Mineral Cosmetics features natural, finely ground minerals from the earth, without common irritants (including chemicals, dyes and preservatives) found in conventional makeup. Many of the Youngblood products contain Youngblood’s signature blend of minerals including Malachite, Rhodolite, Hematite and Zincite to help protect skin cells and tissue.

The unique difference of Youngblood® Mineral Cosmetics compares to the usual cosmetics line is because it allows the skin to heal and breathe. All Youngblood products are extremely gentle to all skin types and conditions, including skin recovering from laser or chemical peels, or experiencing rosacea, acne or discoloration. 

With the concern for her patients recovering from harsh medical procedures, Pauline Youngblood, Founder and CEO of Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics developed her first products in a medical setting. Her patients experienced such dramatic success that they continued using her formula long after their skin had healed and urged her to make it commercially available. Over the past 18 years, Youngblood® has become the clear standard used at many upscale med-spas and skin care clinics around the world, and is carried at the finest boutiques including Henri Bendel in New York and NewBeauty at Fred Segal in Santa Monica, California USA.

All Youngblood® products are free of talc, parabens, petroleum, mineral oil, artificial dyes and fragrance, and have earned numerous awards internationally including "Best Foundation" (Beauty Launchpad USA) and "Best Mineral Blush" (NewBeauty USA). They are heralded by professional makeup artists, celebrities and customers alike for their comprehensive assortment of natural-looking shades that are easy to use, long-lasting and able to stand up to heat, humidity and perspiration.

Youngblood products are suitable for all ages and skin types, even those with sensitive or problem skin, and come in a comprehensive range of shades. The natural minerals used in Youngblood ill create a beautiful, translucent glow to the skin that is unmatched by any other makeup on the market today. 

My makeup theme is the glamorous Hollywood.
Thumbs up to the flawless and silky smooth complexion achievable using the products listed below. Ohh... don't I look like the Chinese opera lady with my pink blush face?

One of my favourite products from Youngblood has to be the Mineral Primer. Perfect, flawless smooth complexion, I am definitely sold.

It is also packed with minerals and vitamins to protect the skin from environmental damage. Youngblood Mineral Primer recently won the Harper's Bazaar Beauty Awards 2015(Malaysia) for Best Make-Up Base.
