Valentine's Day Makeup

With so many make-up companies to choose from, Younique stands out to me for several reasons. The company was founded by two siblings that seem dedicated to empowering women of all ages and walks of life. They even have a non-profit that supports women outside of the awesome products they produce. Their make-up options are suitable for a variety of skin types and skin tones.

Unlike other liquid foundations – this foundation doesn’t aim to cover up your natural skin’s undertones, instead, it enhances it, bringing out its natural beauty while discreetly covering flaws. As an added benefit, the foundation doesn’t feel heavy when you wear it.

Younique’s TOUCH MINERAL liquid foundation is available in 19 different shades. For me it didn’t take much product to get the right coverage. I found that just four or five dots of foundation spread over the face should do the trick. At the same time, the foundation is buildable and works well with powders.

Younique’s TOUCH MINERAL liquid foundation makes a great gift. It comes in a cute and stylish black box with white lettering and the company’s logo. Like other foundations, the bottle is made using thick glass. If you’re into giving make-up as a gift, the foundation can be given on its own, but there are many other great products that look great together in a gift basket, along with a broad range of skincare products.

There are some things to be aware of when buying and applying the TOUCH MINERAL liquid foundation. Because the make-up is mineral-based, it may not have as large a shade selection as some other well-known brand names. That said, Younique does offer a lot of shade options, and you will likely find a perfect match for any skin tone. It’s essential you shake the bottle before using it the first time. If you don’t, you may find it to be too oily. Give it a few shakes and the ingredients will thoroughly mix, and the foundation will be ready for application.

Finding the perfect foundation is not easy, and while some brands are arguably better than others, there are instances where skin tone, skin type, and personal preferences will have a significant bearing on which type of foundation best suits your needs. After trying Younique’s TOUCH MINERAL liquid foundation, I was pleasantly surprised at the coverage and lightness of the foundation. I’d say it compares with higher-end makeup, while being mid-range in price.
