Young Blood ; Cosmetic that heals

Beauty geeks, I bring you great news! If youre all in for high end fashion, and high end cosmetics, you will definitely love this! Recently, I was invited to a very special intimate make-over to try out Young Blood Mineral Cosmetics, which was founded by paramedical aesthetician, Pauline Youngblood in 1996 in California. If its your first time hearing about Young Blood, its only because they  were initially used during fashion shows backstage. And now, they have made it possible for beauty geeks to walk out of home, looking like youre runway ready. YAY!


Considering that it’s a premier luxury mineral cosmetic, it features natural, finely ground minerals from the earth, without containing common irritants like chemical, dyes, and preservatives being found in conventional makeup. The products contains signature blends of minerals which includes Malachite, Rhoedolite, Hematite and Zincite to help skin cells and tissue. You got that right, it protects, and heals your skin while you look fabulous.

Other than allowing skin to heal and breathe, its also extremely gentle to all skin types and condition. This also includes skin recovering from laser or chemical peels or experiencing rosacea, acne or discoloration.

How is this possible? Well, The CEO of Youngblood, Pauline Youngblood had a passion to design products in a medical setting for her patients recovering from harsh medical procedures. And apparently her patients experienced dramatic success that it has healed skin, which urged her to make it commercially available.


How to achieve this look?
So what do you think of the final outcome? If you ask me, i love how it looks, and it was a bonus that it felt as if i wasnt wearing any cosmetics on my face. MAJOR LOVE! From a first impression, i realized that Young Blood had an amazing award achievement in Female magazine, Womens weekly and more! Excited to know more and why has this brand is so exclusive, and also to get my make-over done.

Left: Mineral Prime, Eye Impact Quick Recovery Eye Cream
First up, is their Beauty Award Winner, Young Blood Mineral Primer. I had a swatch on my hand to get a feel of the texture, and I have to say that it felt light and silky on my skin, leaving a very natural finish. The Mineral Primer helps enhance the performance of makeup throughout the day while the Eye Impact Quick Recovery Eye Cream reduces signs of fatigue for fresher looking eyes.

Luminour Creme Blush in Rose Quartz
From the photo, you can tell that I’ll look like a clown walking around with SUCH pink cheeks. But this happens to be one of the most pretties shades i've applied on my face. The secret to applying this would be to apply it before you apply foundation. This leaves a natural blush on your face. The Luminous Creme Blush in Rose Quartz is oil free and the colour is long lasting while it gives you extra vibrancy.

From Left: Loose Mineral Foundation, Loose Mineral Setting Powder.
After applying blusher, they applied the Youngblood Loose Mineral Foundation. With ultra fine powder, I was amazed that it conceals and also acts as a foundation! To make it simple, foundation never felt so loose and light. Application was incredibly smooth and the coverage was buildable while it leaves a soft radiant finish. Its no wonder it won Best Mineral Powder in the Beauty Choice award in USA last year. Then Vince added the Loose Mineral Setting powder which created a flawless matte finish which i fell in love instantly.

From Left: Hi-Def Hydrating Mineral Perfecting Powder, Mineral Radiance in Sundance
The Hi-Definition Hydrating Mineral Perfecting Powder was then applied, which i was told that it absorbs excess oil to make sure you dont look too shiny as the day ends. It left a super fine texture which is very cooling and light. I have to say that i was instantly tempted to get the Mineral Radiance for myself because of the shades available in one bronzer. Perfect for blush, highlighting and contouring.

Can you believe that my eyeshadow was all from the Gel Liner?
 When Vince applied the Incredible Wear Gel Liner around my eyes, i was amazed by what it can do. He actually turned the Gel liner into my eye shadow AND eyeliner. Talk about 2 in 1, this saves you the time and money if you love going glam.

The final outcome
Ta-daa! Its such a shame if I don’t go for a fancy dinner with all the effort for this look. And can you believe that this look can be achieved within less than 30 minutes? Possibly its because my MOA was superb with his skills on getting this look on me. Thanks Vince! Check him out on instagram for other looks that he has created.
