Best Face Primer

Younique has the best face primerGlorious Face & Eye Primer, which is one of my absolute favorite products!

What Glorious Face & Eye Primer Can Do

Younique Glorious Face & Eye Primer is the best face primer as it creates a flawless canvas as it evens out the skin’s texture and primes and prepares the skin for premium application of mineral makeup.  The resulting appearance is porcelain-perfect, velvety-soft skin with incredible long-wearing, sweat-resistant coverage of mineral makeup that lasts all day.  Ingredients are naturally based, free of parabens, oils, synthetic fragrances, and cheap fillers.  It is suitable for all skin types.

How to Apply Glorious Face & Eye Primer

This really is the best face primer as it applied directly to skin prior to concealer, foundation, or makeup.  Blend into skin using circular motions until primer is absorbed.  Gentle enough to use all over face and around eyes.  One small, less than a dime-size amount is sufficient for the entire face.  At $39 for 40 ml, this product is cost efficient as well.

Instantly my skin feels smooth as silk and some days I wear it alone without makeup for a natural look and feel.  I’ve tried other primers that just leave my face feeling oily or that do not absorb well into my skin.  I love how my makeup lasts all day without the need to reapply and the Moodstruck Minerals Pigment Powder stay beautifully as well.

You will fall in love with Glorious Face & Eye Primer’s, “best face primer”, porcelain-perfect finish and your face again.

Animal Friendly Makeup

Animal Friendly Makeup

Do you know what is in the makeup you use?  Is it important to you?  What about animal friendly makeup?

Or are you like I used to be…drawn to makeup by packaging and the price tag?  This method led to many disappointments and a drawer filled with half used makeup.  Until Younique landed in my lap; I was at a crossroads and re-examining my lifestyle; foods I ate, exercise, and what I put on my body.  Younique’s naturally based and animal cruelty free products were just what I was looking for.

Younique Presenter: A Personal Journey

Younique Presenter: A Personal Journey

I was in a place where I was not happy with my appearance and did not even know what a Younique Presenter was.  I was battling hypothyroidism and desperately trying to get it regulated with medication, supplements, and lifestyle changes.  My hair was thinning, breaking, and dry; this was saddening because as much as I’ve always despised my hair, it was my trademark and the first thing many noticed about me.   My skin was gray, dry, and lifeless.  I no longer recognized the girl in the mirror and was beginning to become a shell of the girl I once knew.

IMG_9196

In walked Younique, a savior I didn’t know would have a major role in bringing me back to life.  I was invited to an online party by a dear college friend.  I’ve never been a makeup girl having to have all the newest beauty secrets.  I honestly cannot tell you the reason I ordered the 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara from this party.  It was a complete impulse buy from a girl desperate to feel better about herself.  When it arrived, my husband (fiancé at the time) responded with, “You spent how much on mascara?  It’s not going be any different.”  I went upstairs to apply it anyway…I was excited, hopeful, but also skeptical.  I was amazed before eye number 1 was even complete!  I am a complete makeup novice and even I can do this!  I finished both eyes and went back downstairs.  The look on his face was all the reassurance I needed and I was hooked!  I still find him staring and one day I didn’t apply it before work and when I commented about this, he said, “I knew there was something missing.”

Helping Out a Friend

So when this dear friend and Younique Presenter asked me to host an online party, I immediately said yes.  I had browsed the website and was eager to try other products and help my friend at the same time.  My party was an immediate hit.  My friend and her sponsor were messaging me trying to convince me to sign up and join the sisterhood as a Younique presenter.  I was apprehensive; I am a very introverted person, how am I going to be any good sales; I don’t know the first thing about makeup, my college roommate always applied it for me; do I have time for this; do I know enough people to make it work?  So many thoughts and questions were running through my mind.  I listened to the recorded opportunity message about the company and business.  I found myself getting excited, inspired, and thinking maybe I can do this.  The support I was receiving from women I did not know blew me away.  I felt a part of something before I even took the leap.  The night I decided to sign up I was overcome with so many emotions; excited, hopeful, nervous.  I was trembling as I clicked the button, but my sponsor was on the phone with me through it all. 

I could tell you my reasons were our upcoming wedding, contributing to our household so my husband does not feel he has to work so many hours of overtime, to be a part of a family of strong, inspiring, empowering women, belief in the company, the mission, and the products, to empower others, etc.  But the main reason I took this giant leap of faith was the timid voice deep inside that was screaming, “YES!  You can do this!”  All those other reasons are true; they helped me rationalize my decision, and continue to motivate me on my journey.

I was pleasantly surprised by the outpouring of support from team members I have never met.  I am never alone which is a huge security blanket as this experience is so very new to me and I still don’t know exactly what it is that don’t know and am learning every day.  Team leaders are available for individual coaching calls, weekly team calls and they post helpful tips, training, and strategies daily in online group forums.  They genuinely care about you and your business.  You are not just a number that will build their income.  They embody the mission of uplifting, empowering, and validating women.

Royalties Program

Our compensation plan for a Younique Presenter is an amazing perk as well which was designed with success in mind.  We are paid daily…yes daily! There are no ongoing fees or hoops to jump through.  Our marketing and sales are done primarily online through social media providing you an opportunity for innovation using your own resources and the connections you already have.  You have access to reference and training materials right at your fingertips along with business supplies for building your business.

So here I am over 6 months later and continue to enjoy being a Younique presenter.  I have established friendships I would not have had and am empowering women every day to raise their self-esteem.  Younique products have brought new life not only to my skin but my every day.  I no longer require medication to regulate my thyroid and can look in the mirror without cringing and disdain.  I have the support of a community that is backing me 100%. 

Everyone has a different Younique story and path to wellness; I would have laughed if you had told me a cosmetic company would be a part of my journey.  I took the leap and have not looked back.  I believe deeply in this company and the diligence they put into creating healthy, naturally based products to enhance your natural beauty from the inside.

It’s About More Than How to Makeup Eyes

It’s About More Than How to Makeup Eyes

Beauty is about more than how to makeup eyes.  Yet, we are constantly comparing ourselves to standards which leave us feeling discouraged and defeated.

What are your thoughts as you apply your makeup every morning?  Ugh…look at that blemish…cover those dark circles…conceal that scar…smooth that texture…minimize those pores.

I venture to guess it is negativity about a face that special persons have come to know and love.  All those critical thoughts about individual features that come together to make up one very beautiful, special, unique person.

As ladies we are constantly bombarded with images with unreachable expectations that define how we measure up in this world.  These images lead to nagging, judging, critical thoughts about our appearance that can strip any feelings of worthiness and love we may have for ourselves.  We put our faces under a microscope and pull the plug on our self confidence.  Before you know it, you’re telling yourself, “I just don’t have time to put on makeup, do my hair, or even get dressed; I’m just picking up the kids, taking them to practice, or running into the store for a few things.”  We begin to settle and put ourselves on the back burner sacrificing for the sake of our families.  At least this is what we say to ourselves.  Would you ask your daughter to settle?  Or encourage her to dress for the part she wants in this world?

photo 120

So tomorrow morning I challenge you to change your focus from how to makeup eyes and embrace your face.  Identify your favorite feature, use your makeup to accentuate it, and fall in love with your face again.

Change the ughs into…I love how this eyeliner goes with my eye color or how this mascara really opens my eyes…just look at how this blush accentuates my cheek bones.

When our thoughts change from the negative to the beautiful, our whole perspective changes.  It has a ripple effect that could potentially change your whole day, week, even your world.

Imagine what could happen if your day started with smiles instead of disdain.  Throw away the thoughts that limit your worth and tell you you’re not enough and rediscover your unique beauty.

Investing in ourselves with quality products affirms our worthiness and feelings of self pride as it is so much more than how to makeup eyes.

It aligns our self beliefs and the comfort we feel within our own skin despite the images of mainstream expectations.  It is us reassuring ourselves we are worth it, we are important, we matter.  When we reconnect with ourselves and feel pride in our appearance, the excuses we tell ourselves just fade away.

It’s not about being conceited or full of yourself to play up your assets.

It’s about building your confidence, finding comfort in your beautiful self, and investing in your future because it’s more than just “how to makeup eyes.”

Revealed: The Naked Truth About Younique 3D Fiber Lashes

photo 219

I want to offer you the Naked Truth About Younique 3D Fiber Lashes.  In today’s day and age there is a strong emphasis about nutrition, organic foods, and toxic ingredients in our foods.  There is a long list of foods on the DO NOT consume list and an even longer list of key ingredients to avoid for reasons ranging from joint pain to mental fog to may cause cancer.  So with all this attention being paid to what you put in your body, have you given any thought to what you are putting on your body?  From creams to lotions to foundation to mascara, we are slathering our skin with key ingredients that pose certain health risks.  These toxins and chemicals easily absorb into our skin, our body’s largest system, and through even our most absorbent and sensitive area, our eyes.  Don’t believe me about how absorbent your skin can be?  Stick a clove of garlic between your toes and see what happens in about 30 minutes, I dare you.

Traditional mascara is stocked full of such toxins as parabens, ethyl acetate, diazolindinyl urea, and phthalates unlike Younique 3D Fiber Lashes.

These chemicals can cause reactions from skin irritation to organ damage to interference in brain and nervous system function to mood disturbances.  Mascara is a must have beauty product second only to lipstick and lip gloss.  Ladies will use an average of 3,000 tubes in their lifetime.  Who can blame us!  Mascara draws attention to the eyes which can say so much without a word.  Some are willing to take the chance at health risks to have beautiful, lush, long fluttering lashes while others do not believe our favorite brands would dare poison our favorite products!  We trust them blindly without doing our research.  I am here for you and I have done my research!  Our most trusted brands are not exempt.

10 Personal Development Quotes to Motivate You!

10 personal development quotes to motivate you

We could all use a little motivation in our lives! Here are 10 powerful personal development quotes to help inspire you into taking more action to get the results that you deserve!
  1. As the physically weak man can make himself strong by careful and patient training, so the man of weak thoughts can make them strong by exercising himself in right thinking.

    James Allen – As a Man Thinketh
    “As a Man Thinketh” was written by James Allen and published all the way back in 1902, yet so many of the principles are still great today! If you get a chance to read this book, you will immediately see the value in the wisdom that is shared, and how these principles have stood the test of time, literally, over a century and counting!
  2. It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not.

    André Gide – Autumn Leaves
    This quote helps to remind us not to be afraid of failure, or afraid of haters, as we embark upon our journey towards success. Along the way there will be many obstacles and setbacks, and many naysayers who will steal our dreams. But if you are chasing something that you truly love, it’s always worth it in the long run!
  3. So what is the difference between power thinking and positive thinking? The distinction is slight but profound. To me, people use positive thinking to pretend that everything is rosy, when they really believe that it’s not. With power thinking, we understand that everything is neutral, that nothing has meaning except for the meaning we give it, and that we are going to make up a story and give something it’s meaning.

    T Harv Eker – Secrets of the Millionaire Mind
    We have to be careful about the stories that we tell ourselves in our own mind. We can quickly create limiting beliefs that can hold us back from our true potential. Or we can create stories that build our confidence and belief and inspire us into action. What stories are YOU choosing to tell yourself?
  4. We cannot choose our external circumstances, but we can always choose how we respond to them.

    Epictetus – Enchiridion
    So many people are quick to complain about their situation and their circumstances, as a way to justify their lack of actions to change it. But at the end of the day, WE are the ones that have the choice to respond to these things that happen to us. Are we choosing to view things as negative or positive? Are we choosing to embrace the challenges, or let them hold us back?
  5. Be the change you want to see in this world.

    Gandhi
    This quote is so powerful there is not much that I can say about it. Except to share it with the hope that we all truly step out of our comfort zone, and stop worrying about what others choose to do, and instead focus on the daily actions that we can lead by example with.
  6. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

    Mark Twain
    This quote really resonates with me because we all live with a little bit of hindsight and regret, that we do our best to shake off. The good news is that we are in control over what we choose to spend our time on in the future, so let’s spend it doing things that we will look back and be proud of ourselves and have amazing experiences and memories that we can share with others to inspire them!
  7. Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

    Steve Jobs
    It’s so easy to get caught up in what everyone else wants us to do with our lives. But what about OUR passions? What about OUR dreams? What’s most important is trusting ourselves and the direction that we are compelled to go, because our heart and intuition know us best 🙂
  8. A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.

    Albert Einstein
    Risk is a major factor that can slow us down along our journey. We are creatures of habit, and we tend to fall into our routines and watch time just slip away from us. Sometimes is good to be spontaneous and try new things and live life to the fullest!
  9. The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams.

    Oprah Winfrey
    What if we sat down and REALLY wrote out a list of our dreams and goals and desires, and then got PASSIONATE to spend every waking hour that we could, pursuing those dreams and goals…How amazing would that adventure be? How awesome would life be if there were no limitations to what you could do?
  10. In life, lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Knowing is not enough! You must take action.

    Tony Robbins
    I wanted to end with this quote, because reading quotes doesn’t do much for us, except make us feel good and help us with our belief. What we really need is to Take Massive Action and actually get out there and go after our dreams and goals to live life to the fullest. Are you ready to do whatever it takes to have the success that you deserve?
