Creating Fun Looks with Younique Makeup REVIEW

Hi everyone!

As many of you will know, I adore working and supporting local businesses, and today's blog post is courtesy of Younique Presenter, Claire from Younique with Claire, who let me loose with her entire collection to get creative and see what fun looks I can come up with! As a thank you, Claire gave me the Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+ mascara.

All of the looks below started with a clean face using the Shine eye makeup remover cloths, followed by the Divine daily moisturiser and Glorious face & eye primer. The finale was two coats of the Moodstruck 3D Fibre Lashes+ mascara!

Every single makeup look below was created solely using Younique products, including their brushes.

My Everyday Daytime Look

Touch Mineral Liquid Foundation (Scarlet) * Moodstruck Mineral Concealer (Fabulous) * Moodstruck Minerals Pressed Blusher (Sweet) * Beachfront Bronzer (Sunset) * Precision Brow Set (Medium) * Moodstruck Minerals Pigment Powders (Adorable & Daring) * Moodstruck Precision Pencil Eyeliner (Perfect) * Moodstruck Precision Pencil Eyeliner (Pristine) * Stiff Upper Lip Lip Stain (Sappy)

Galaxy Face

I started off with a neutral base of the Touch Mineral Liquid Foundation in Scarlet, then outlined the galaxy element using the Moodstruck Precision Pencil Eye Liner in Precarious. The galaxy was filled in using generous blends of the Moodstruck Minerals Pigment Powders in: Regal, Heavenly, Feisty, Crushed, Awestruck, Precocious and Empowered. 

To make a bold statement with my eyebrow inside the galaxy, I used the Moodstruck Precision Pencil Eye Liners in Presumptions and Passionate. I used the Precision Brow Set (Medium) for my other brow

I lined my eyes using Moodstruck Precision Pencil Eye Liners in Passionate (lower lashes) and Precarious (upper lash line)

The little stars were created using the Moodstruck Precision Pencil Eye Liner in Pristine, and I wore the Stiff Upper Lip Lip Stain in Savvy on my lips

Fireworks Inspired 

I used Touch Mineral Liquid Foundation (Scarlet) as a base with Lucrative Lip Gloss in Ladylike on my lips

On both eyes, I started with Moodstruck Minerals Pigment Powder in Awestruck all over my lid, followed by Heavenly on the crease, and Curious on my brow bone. 

On my feature eye, I created the fireworks/sparks using a combination of the Moodstruck Precision Pencil Eyeliners and Lipliners: Perky, Polished, Presumprious and Passionate. I also tightlined using the Perfect eyeliner. 

Doe / Deer

I started with the Touch Mineral Liquid Foundation in Scarlet all over my face, then used the shade Cypress to heavily contour my cheekbones, temples and nose. Using the Moodstruck Minerals Concealer in Fierce to exaggerate the darker tones on the contoured areas. 

I used Moodstruck Minerals Pigment Powders in Adorable and Daring on my eyes, avoiding the lower lash line. 

I gave the impression of larger eyes by using the Moodstruck Precision Pencil Eyeliner in Pristine on my lower lash line, then a smudge of Perfect to to create a new lower lash line. 

I used the Precision Brow Set in Medium on my brows, and gently joined the inner brows to the top of my nose contour to emphasise the deer's snout

Moodstruck Precision Pencil Eyeliner in Perfect worked well at drawing on the deer nose, with a couple of applications of Moodstruck Opulance Lipstick in Swanky on the lips.

The final touch are the cute white specks found on young deers, which I applied using Moodstruck Precision Pencil Eyeliner in Pristine! 

Voila! What do we all think of the four above looks? I really love playing with makeup and creating new looks, and it was so much fun using products from one brand to check its versatility! 

My favourite item was definitely the liquid foundation. It was the perfect shade for me (hallalujah), had the perfect coverage yet was lightweight, and wasn't sparkly (has anyone else noticed that many high street brands have slightly sparkly foundations??)

I also adored the lip stains. With only two coats you get an amazing colour that stays on.

  1. It looks like you had a lot of fun creating these looks :o)

  2. I agree the shade of foundation matches you perfectly! It's a really healthy tanned colour that highlights your face aswell as giving good coverage, you did good! :)
