Anyway moving on to today's blog post, as today is Monday it can only mean it's....MAKEUP MONDAY...so for this weeks blog I'm going to be finally sharing with all of you MY YOUNGBLOOD MAKEUP LAUNCH BLOG POST which I attended over two months ago...yes its been that long!! Throughout the blog, I will be attaching some pictures I took at the launch too.
Better late then never......
Lets get to it!!
So as you all probably seen a on my Twitter/Facebook/Instagram pages back in late May, (that's if you can bring your mind back to it), I was invited to the Closer2Fabulous Studio, Clare Street, Dublin 2 (http://closer2fabulous.ie/) for the launch of Youngblood Ireland #World of Colour 2014. I was invited through twitter by the lovely Elaine Hession, who is a Fashion Stylist for Irish Wedding Diary Magazine. She is also a Makeup Artist and a Beauty Blogger for Closer2Faboulous Studio.
On my arrival to the Studio I was greeted by the lovely Elaine Hession. Elaine then introduced me to the lovely Debbie Leonard who is a Makeup Artist (MUA) and who also sells the Youngblood Mineral Cosmetic Collection on her website: http://closer2fabulous.ie/

After our meet and greet, I was then introduced to International MUA Philip Luque who gave me an introduction into the YOUNGBLOOD PRODUCTS and some new products that our due to hit stores in the coming months.
One product that stood out by far for me and that was these Highly Pigmented Gold, Sliver and Bronze Eyeshadows due to be arriving in stores in the next couple of months (sorry I didn't manage to get a pic of them)....I can not wait to try them out as I love using shades that are rich in colour and that stand out too!! EXCITING!!
One thing I really enjoyed about the launch was how Philip Luque demonstrated each of the products and also allowing me to test each product whether it was foundation or eyeliner. He also showed me how the products are so versatile, first he mixed 'Loose Mineral Foundation Powder' with the 'Mineral Primer' to create a full coverage substance which went on like a liquid foundation but felt weightless on the skin. From looking at how versatile the Youngblood Products are, personally I feel you can be quite adventurous with these products and create fabulous colours, tones and textures.
For those of you who don't no a lot about the YOUNGBLOOD RANGE, here is a brief description...
Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics is a Professional Luxury Mineral Cosmetic Line made of Natural Finely Ground Minerals from the Earth without any of the common irritants (including Chemicals, Dyes and Preservative) which are found in Conventional Makeup. Youngblood Cosmetics was founded by Pauline Youngblood Soli in 1996.
Pauline's aim was to create a line that was natural and realistic on the skin for people who have had severely traumatized skin from Harsh Laser Treatments, Acne, Rosacea and Cosmetic Surgeries. Youngblood Mineral Makeup is a beauty brand with not just one, but an entire host of products to help lighten, tighten, nourish and promote healthy skin. The Make-up Range is a very dynamic and is very rich in colour!! Youngblood products are incredible easy to use, they are long lasting, they even stand up to heat, humidity and perspiration.

So as we came to the end of the Youngblood Launch, I was handed a Goody Bag by Closer2Fabulous which I am now going to share with all of you!!
GOODY BAG TIME!!
In my Goody Bag, I received 4 gorgeous Make-up Products.
The first one I'm going to start with is this glowing MINERAL RADIANCE BRONZER in a SPLENDOR SHADE, These bronzer's are used to Contour, Define, Highlight and add a golden glow of radiance to the face that lasts throughout the day. I can't wait to start using this, as now that we our in summer I feel this is the perfect Make-up product to have on your face through out these summer months!!
The Second product I received was this EYELINER PENCIL, that is sharpen to a fine point for precision for using when getting that over all smoky look on the eyes!! The Shade I received was this CHESTNUT SHADE, which I can not wait to try out on my eyes...oh and creating that smoky look too!!
The Third product I received was this fabulous LIPSTICK from their range, Oh I do love Lipsticks!! The Youngblood Lipstick range contains a special blend of natural oils and vitamins which remains lustrous for hours. The Shade I received this Lipstick in was in DEBALICIOUS (a light pinky shade) which is absolutely gorgeous, I can't wait to start wearing it!!
The fourth and final product I received in my Youngblood Goody Bag, was this PRESSED MINERAL EYESHADOW QUAD...In the shade MOULIN ROUGE. The shades of each eyeshadow on the quad is as follows: CAN-CAN, REVUE, CABARETS and RED LIGHT!! I had my eye on these when MUA Philip Luque was introducing me to the Youngblood Range, so as you can all probably tell...I am DELIGHTED I received this!! The quad contains four rich shadows (high pigments). The talc-free formula sweeps on like silk and wears for hours on your eyes. Can't wait to try this out!!
