March Product Launch!

What we have all been waiting for is finally here…..

HIGHLIGHTER PRODUCTS <3<3

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I was so beyond excited when the new products were released, and highlight was on the menu. Younique has done me proud by providing three different options to choose from 16299428_10100271008077488_7944107593130733305_nbased on personal preference. You can choose from 5 beautiful shades in either powder, cream, or cream to powder stick form!

I have tried iridescent in powder form, and it is absolutely stunning. I have fallen in love with the highlight, and I can’t wait to try the other kinds. If you like highlight, you need this product in your life ladies.

Don’t believe me? See for yourself – and this was when I didn’t have direct light!hl

Another really exciting segment of this launch is the setting products!

16299476_10100271010502628_4167930354003024475_n

This comes in both a powder and a spray, which again allows the user to decide based on preference.

I have tried the powder form, and it truly does finish off the look for a beautiful matte finish.

One of the beauty trends that keeps getting hotter is the art of brows! We already have two amazing brow products that I love in the brow gel and liner, but now my life has been simplified with something even better…16406420_10100271004599458_1954673227361687326_n

Younique Partners with Coty; A Billion Dollar Beauty Company

Hey folks,

I know I have been kind of absent for a little while doing some soul searching and making life changes, so I will explain that in another post to come. I just HAD to come on here and tell you all about some CRAZY thing that just happened…

Because HOLY CRAP!!

I just got an email that blew my mind. Ladies, are you familiar with brands like GUCCI, 15940715_364436983926266_1717680269005004226_nCalvin Klein, OPI, Marc Jacobs, and Cover Girl? (More in the image to the right –>)Well, all of these well-known brands are owned by one of the worlds LARGEST beauty companies – Coty – a company that has now entered into a partnership with the luxury cosmetics company that you all know I work for; Younique.

Check out a few quotes from the official press release: “Coty is one of the world’s largest beauty companies with approximately $9 billion in revenue”; “Coty is the global leader in fragrance, a strong number two in professional salon hair color & styling, and number three in color cosmetics.”

15966277_10154868611413744_4129218535815128847_n

Okay, so what does this MEAN? This essentially means that Younique has been recognized for its amazing products, value that we as presenters deliver, and the mission statement behind the entire company to UPLIFT, EMPOWER, and VALIDATE women by one of the largest corporations to the entire beauty industry around the world. This is INSANE.

This partnership holds SO much promise and is SUPER exciting for me.

  1. It means that we will be able to bring out new products more quickly
  2. Replenish supplies of existing products more quickly to reduce the chance of back orders for our awesome customers, AND
  3. We will be able to expand into new territories even faster with the help of our new backer.

If you enjoy makeup even a little bit, come and talk to me! NOW is the time to get involved with this company so that you can get settled in before all of the craziness begins when the new product and market launches start happening. If makeup isn’t your thing, that’s cool! Please share this so that it reaches more people that may actually be searching for something this awesome to fall in their lap. Every share helps my business SO much

Eeep! I can’t wait to see what 2017 brings.
(Please let it include great shimmery highlighters :P)

How to get a Perfect Smokey Eye in 3 Simple Steps

NEW BLOG POST!

I have been practicing with makeup since middle school, which was before a lot of people my age at the time even wore makeup. Mind you, I was never very skilled at it back then lol. As I got older though, I got a lot better at application. I started teaching myself how to do things by watching videos on YouTube, much like many of you have done before I am sure. Through high school, and especially university, I would get a lot of compliments on my eye makeup. To this day, I still get compliments pretty regularly from people that say “Oh I could never do something like that, I have no idea how you do it”.

If this is you, well trust me when I say, YOU CAN. Honestly, my smokey eye looks are pretty freakin’ simple haha. I just use great products and apply it in a way that blends well and makes my eyes pop. It really doesn’t take that much time either, and you can literally do it in three simple steps. Now. My intention was actually to have a video to post in here with the demo photos, but I done messed up haha. I filmed the video last night after work, or at least so I thought. Come to find out, I must have missed the button when I hit record, because the only video I had from yesterday was of me cleaning up. So, when I thought I was stopping the recording, that was when it started. I’m human, so don’t judge lol. I will film another one and insert it as soon as I can. For now though, I wanted to make sure that I fulfilled my promise on social media from earlier this week to provide instructions on how to do a smokey eye.

Browns-Neutrals

Step 1: You start out with a light shade. You can do this with pretty much any eye shadow that you have, whether it be from a palette, loose pigment, cream shadow, etc. It honestly doesn’t matter what kind of shadow you’re using, it will all do the same thing just with different variations in look. This light shade should be something like beige, white, off white, or super light colors that go with the look you’re creating. Use personal preference to determine if you want something shimmer or matte – personally I go glitter all day every day! You will take whatever you have chosen for step one, and apply it directly under your brow to highlight and all over that upper part of your lid. It will be more concentrated right under the brow, and then you just blend it downward. This shade will also be applied in the inner corner of your eye, and the inner half section of your eye lid. In the photo you see to your right, I am using the second shade on the palette for this smokey eye look in neutral browns.

Step 2: This will be a medium shade. Again, you can choose the type of shadow and the Blacks-Silvers
color palette. This shade will be similar to the first shade, but a few tones darker. This part is a bit easier because the application area is far smaller. With this shade, you pretty much just need to continue where you left off with step one. You will apply the second shade to the outer area of your lid right up to the middle, which is where it will meet the lighter shade from step one. Just go over that connecting area with little swiping motions to blend it in a bit. I usually fan this second color up a little bit into the crease as well to provide a base, but that is not necessary because you will be covering it up anyway. To the right you will see me demonstrating palette 2, which is a palette that comes with shades of black, grey, and silver. Here you see me using the second shade down again for the highlighting of step one, and the fourth shade down for this second step. You can see that it is just a couple of shades darker than the highlighting color that I used, and again this one was in shimmer.

Pinks-Purples

Step 3: This is where you will be creating the smokey part of your smokey eye. You will choose a darker color for this step, and you can choose to go really dark or stay relatively toned down depending on your personal preference. For this look I was going for purples, so I chose to opt out of the black as the darkest shade for the crease and go for the second darkest, which was a royal purple. For the first step of this look I used the fourth shade down to highlight, and then the fifth shade for step two. The sixth shade was then applied as a line from the outside corner of my eye heading toward my eyebrow, but you stop about halfway there. You then shade in that v area in the outer corner of your eye, and when you don’t have a lot of product left on your brush, you fan it up and around in that crease of your eye lid. Just go over that area a few times to blend it together, and if necessary you can add a tiny amount of product to the brush to make sure that it actually is visible. If you want, you can also apply this darker shade to the lower lash line, but that comes down to personal preference.

So there ya go ladies! This is how I create super simple smokey-eye looks with different color palettes on a daily basis. The products that were used in these demos are all Younique Moodstruck Addiction Shadow Palettes, but you can replicate the same kind of looks with pretty much any palettes that you have on hand! It is quick and easy once you get the hang of it, so give it a try with whatever products you have! If you’re really brave, you can even send in your attempts to jessica@fitnessbeautytravel.com. I would love to hear about your experience and see how you made out with my tip!

Thanks for reading ladies, I hope you found this useful!

Real People, Real Results!

This is a relatively new thing for me, but I was so beyond happy to have permission from a recent customer to share her Younique results with all of you. I dropped her order for a self-made collection of items off to Melanie on my way to a family reunion, and just an hour or two later I received the best feedback I could have asked for.

Much to my surprise, she sent me before and after photos! I want to share with all of you that which she has shared with me.

mel1

So here she is pre-Younique. This image was what she called herself as being a “hot mess”! She is beautiful, but you can tell from the photo that she doesn’t feel very confident. This is a normal thing for a huge portion of the female population, and this is also the biggest reason that I love Younique. We sell makeup, but more importantly than that, we sell CONFIDENCE.

mel3

This is Melanie post-Younique. She is smiling, she looks great, and her makeup is fabulous! She had palettes 2 and 3, so she used cocky from palette 2 for shaping her eyebrows, and cheeky, ecstatic, and smitten for her lids. The new Younique palettes are phenomenal, so I was happy to see her fall in love with them! She also used blusher in seductive, 3D+ Fiber Lash Mascara, and our stiff upper lip lip stain in sleek! Last but not least, I have to mention the use of the wonder duo…

12395249_162695934086377_186959713_nOne of my personal favorite products is the NEW Skin Perfecting Concealer. This new Younique concealer is honestly hands down the best product that I personally have ever used. When I got this photo, I was blown away. Melanie told me that she has a scar on her neck that is normally a very deep purple in color, and she utilized her new concealer to cover up the scar. You can barely see the scar in this photo!  If it can do that with a scar, no wonder it has become so widely popular over the past several months.

Now this product was used for Melanie’s look as well, and she topped it off with her new Touch Liquid Foundation. This is yet another product that has been off the charts in terms of sales over the past couple of months. I just want to minimize the expectations for this a little bit. It IS without a doubt an amazing product, and the best foundation that I have ever used. However, it is still medium coverage compared to the concealer that is full coverage. If you can only afford one or the other, and you have a lot that you want to conceal, I would honestly recommend starting with the concealer and then working your way up to getting the foundation to go with it when you are able to afford it!

Thank you so much Melanie for allowing me to share your results. It makes me so happy to get such positive feedback from women that have experienced the amazing benefits that accompany Younique cosmetics. It is not just about dolling yourself up. It is about much more than that! We are a community of women helping other women to feel confident in their own skin. It is a known fact that when a women feels confident, she can accomplish so much more! I know I don’t feel the same without my makeup,and much like this before and after, it shows in the before photo.

If you have an interest in Younique cosmetics but are unsure as to which products would work best for you, feel free to use the contact page to reach me. I have no problem at all helping to match the right products or shades to your style and skin tone.

Remove makeup, marker, etc in seconds!

I always knew that our Shine Makeup Remover cloths were amazing at removing makeup, but what I didn’t know until recently was that it could remove tougher products as well.

Watch me as I draw permanent marker on my skin, and remove it in just a minute or two. Super quick and easy, and absolutely a must-have for any parents with a toddler that has a tendency to play with markers.

Cloud Nine Collection

If you are interested in a few of our newer products, the Cloud Nine Collection is honestly the way to go. This collection features one of everything from our new fall product line, as well as a makeup tote bag, all at a discounted price.

To show you how valuable this collection truly is, I wanted to show you how I can create amazing looks using products from this collection. As I explain in the video, the only product used on my face that was not in the collection was our Beachfront Bronzer. Additionally, I did use Glorious Face and Eye Primer and our Shine Makeup Remover cloths in the other videos, but that did not impact the look.

Want to go ahead and purchase your Cloud Nine collection?

This girl’s new best friend <3

It’s official. I have a new favorite lip stick.

Pretentious is 100% my color!! It is the lip stick equivalent to my favorite lip gloss “lavish”. Anyone that knows me would know that I love pink, and I LOVE glitter when it comes to my beauty routine. I am a huge fan of all of our shimmer products, so when I saw pretentious, I knew I had to have it.

I’m also using Splurge Cream Eye Shadow in noble, dainty, and elegant.I used elegant all over my lid and under my brow, then I used dainty on just the lid, and then I used noble in the crease to create a purple smokey eye look. I also added a bit of noble under the lower lash line on the outer corners, as well as some additional elegant on the inner corners of the eye and under lower lash line there to polish off the look. Of course ALL of my looks are never complete without 3D Fiber Lash Mascara!

You may not know this, but you can actually get THREE Splurge colors of your choosing this month at a discount with our Customer Kudos. Additionally, the Kudos comes with our amazing Shine Makeup Remover Cloths. The Kudos for splurge will end at the end of October, so get it while you can ladies!
