Mineral Makeup Shocker

A naturally trusting person of generous spirit, there are, I admit, times when a curmudgeon sits on my shoulder whispering cynical and distrustful ideas in my ear. This often happens when I am confronted with mineral make up. Don’t get me wrong, there are some good ones on the market. Sadly, there are many more that are hitching a ride on a bandwagon.
First of all, just because its mineral doesn’t mean it’s all natural with only the kindest of intentions. In fact, many mineral cosmetics contain additives and irritants, they are difficult to apply and can make dry and aging skin look, well, dry and old.
More worryingly, some mineral powders contain a pearlizing agent that gives mineral makeup that candlelight glow. This agent is bismuth oxychloride. Strictly speaking, it is a mineral, but it’s not found in the earth. Bismuth is a byproduct of lead and copper processing. Bismuth oxychloride is also frequently used to bulk up or bind products and is considered a skin irritant and, in large amounts, can cause cystic acne. It is to be avoided if you have acne, rosacea or sensitive skin.

Now, there are even minerals that should be avoided. Take talc, for example. It is widely used in make up. It is closely related to the potent carcinogen asbestos, according to the Cancer Prevention Coalition. In particular, there are numerous studies linking it to ovarian cancer (although there are some studies that contradict this and it should be noted that culprit is body powder made of talc).
Mica, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are the core minerals in mineral makeup. The thing is though, they have been used in cosmetics for years, long before marketing departments decided to repackage them as something new and ‘natural’. Having said that, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are anti-inflammatory and a good choice for those of sensitive skin.
There are some good mineral makeup brands that take care to keep their products pure. In the next post on this subject, we’ll round up some of them.

Mineral Makeup 101

Mineral Makeup 101

Mineral Makeup has taken the beauty world by storm. In the biggest beauty trend ever, it has gone from a little known and tiny portion of the beauty market to full mainstream.
Once an exclusive boutique item, mineral foundations and makeup are available everywhere now, from those boutiques to the drugstore, even Wal-Mart and an abundance of choices online. In addition to foundations, there are finishing powders, blush, face colors and high lighters, bronzers, eye shadows, eye liners, mascaras, lip products and now even skin care.
But, are they all created equal? #drugstoremakeup

Absolutely not! Your choice in products will be dictated in your primary purpose in using them. Do you want them because they are more natural or do you just want to look the best you can? Your answer should be both. You want to look good but not at a price of harming your skin. As a makeup wearer I am very careful about what I use on my skin.

The first foundations contained only a few ingredients and there are still many formulas like that. Other companies added in "good for you" skin care ingredients. To transform the formulas for the mass drugstore market, companies began to add more chemicals, fillers and preservatives. Many fans and purists do not feel these are are on the same level as the more traditional products - that they are simply "mineral added" makeups.

The decision is yours. The aim of this article is to provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decisions with the end result being a makeup that you love and that looks wonderful on you, and that is wonderful for you skin.

Is It Wrong To Pray For Makeup?

Make Your Lipstick Last Longer

Make Your Lipstick Last Longer

1. To ensure your lipstick lasts, you'll want to ensure there are no flakes of dead skin renting out space on your pout. Use a lip scrub to exfoliate those little dudes away.

2. Next, apply a hydrating, non-oily lip balm. Anything with a waxy consistency is preferred over a slippery texture that will cause color to slide right off.

3. Pat a little foundation or concealer over lips. Don't entirely erase your mouth, but cancel out your lip's natural pink so that your lip color's true hue comes through. This also gives it a little something extra to adhere to. If you have a dark skin tone, this also helps enhance the lipstick's true color.

4. If you're wearing a bold lip color, outlining the outer edge of your lip line with concealer or the Youngevity Lip Pencil will create a barrier to prevent bleeding. It's basically like installing a fence for your lipstick! Outline and tap softly with your finger to blend.

5. Now, take a Youngevity Mineral lip liner and outline the lips, as well as fill them in. The lip pencil is drier than lipstick and serves as a layer of color for the lipstick to grab onto.
6. Begin applying your color selectively, instead of just swiping across the whole lip. This makes for even, controlled application.

7. Fill in the rest of your lips.

8. Take a tissue and separate it into two halves. Place one sheet on your lips and dust a translucent powder over the lips, through the tissue. This is a trick you'll see makeup artists doing backstage at fashion shows. This sets the color, without depositing a layer of powder.

9. Lightly apply a bit more lipstick on top. Now smile. Your lip color is ready to go the distance!

  Something To know?

There is no such thing as a lipgloss that lasts all day. If you want a glossy look, you will have to reapply throughout the day. Or place a dab in the center of the lip and not all over.
Matte formulas will last longer but can be drying, so don't skip the prep!
Using lip liner will always make your color last longer. Make sure you fill in the lip entirely!
Use a lip brush for a more precise application.

What are the benefits of Mineral Foundation?

Mineral foundation has found a very loyal following for good reason. Once you’ve discovered the beauty and ease of using it, you may never try another foundation again!
Mineral foundation is a light powder made of natural mineral elements without the harsh chemicals that some liquid foundations have. Not only are they kinder to our skin, but the Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide found in Youngevity mineral makeup has natural sunscreen and skin soothing properties.

Light and easy to apply, mineral powder gives a flawless, fresh and healthy look without leaving a heavy, caked on feeling. It acts as both a concealer and foundation, and can be used to cover acne marks, age spots and any other imperfections with perfectly smooth and even coverage – making it an ideal solution for skin of any age. The powder is highly concentrated so just a small amount will give you a glowing finish that lasts all day, making it a very economical solution, because of the natural concentration of the minerals. Mineral reacts better with you skin because the minerals are natural and are from the earth.

With 25% off all Youngevity mineral makeup, now is the perfect time to try mineral foundation or eye shadow from Youngevity for the first time, or stock up on your favorites.
Applying mineral foundation makeup is easy - you just need the right brush. Swirl the brush in the pot to cover the tip lightly with powder and tap to remove excess. Then brush lightly over the skin – remember to use sparingly as a little goes a long way!

Building A Winning Team

Building a winning team is finding someone with like minds with purpose, aim, determination and a desire to be successful. Because everyone that talks about doing something and being successful are not willing to do what it takes and it can sometimes take the wind out of your sail causing you to drag. You need people that are not afraid of success-this means they can see the bigger picture and are not short sighted.
To let you ladies in on a little something, I asked Shay a while back to join my team and she was honest with me and told me that she was not ready. But when Shay was ready and had some prospects lined up she contacted me and said that she was ready to join the team and bring her 9 year old daughter along. So, don't get down over a NO because there are many more where that came from. And if it is NO today does not mean it will be tomorrow.
