Younique seemed to only hit the social world quite recently, I don’t know if it was around before but I had only heard about it in the last year or so, and it seems to be doing pretty well at the moment. I started out liking the sound of their stay put lip stains and purchased one to try and it really did stay put all day, no matter how much eating or drinking takes place!
My friend asked if someone wouldn’t mind being a model face for her to practise her make up on and to go in her portfolio to show others. Well I was happy to help.
We started off bare faced and took a photo of the “before” image, she then applied primer (which makes your make up last longer and resist running if it is a hot day) and we then colour matched me to their foundation:
The shade which suited me was Liquid Touch Mineral Foundation in Organza. The foundation covers really well, just a few drops on the brush covers the whole face and because it goes on liquid and turns to powder it is such a lovely smooth finish.
After the foundation Claire applied the bronzer and blusher, to put a healthy glow back onto my face. She then moved onto my eyes:

The eyeshadow is Splurge in Elegant and she also used the renowned Younique Moodstruck 3D finer lash+ mascara and Moodstruck Precision brow gel and liner set for my eyebrows. I admit to always having a dislike of the mascara, it is too much in my opinion (a bit spider leggy) and after the trial I don’t hate it as much, I think my lashes looked fab, but I am not totally converted. I did however love love love the brow set and will be buying myself a set next pay day!
Lastly we applied the brand new Splash Liquid Lipstick in Spontaneous, which is incredibly stay put, much like the lip stains but look more like a lip stick. I cannot decide which colour to go for tho!
As a general rule I don’t wear a lot of make up; usually it’s eyeliner and lipstick and very very rarely I will use mascara, so for me this was a lot of make up. I think I look pretty with all the make up on but I’m not sure I could even be bothered with the hassle for a special occasion. What do you think? Leave a comment and tell me what you like best?
