On The 2nd Day of Christmas My True Love Gave To Me - A Holiday Makeover From Younique!

12 Days of Christmas Younique

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Younique Consultant, Chris Ashby. All opinions are my own.

Work Christmas parties, family celebrations, ringing in the New Year, no doubt you will be dressing up and heading out to your fair share of holiday parties this time of year! If you're like me, lots of hard-working women and Moms don't always have the time everyday to spend hours on makeup, but attending a special Christmas party or heading out with the love of your life for a romantic Christmas dinner is just the excuse to splurge on looking extra "fabulash" this Christmas. And Younique has all you need to look and feel beautiful this holiday season!

My Before & After

 Throw on a simple black dress and the girl on the right is ready to party! It has been years (and when I say "years", I really do mean years) since I've had the fun of a "makeover". I'm lucky enough to live pretty close to one of my best friends, Chris Ashby, who also happens to be a Younique Consultant - and I have to say, she's one of the best! I'm so excited to share with you all of the products she used in my makeover , which are ALL products you can order directly from her and have delivered right to your door just in time for your upcoming Holiday parties!

Younique Face

Get your face off to a smooth start with the Touch Mineral Liquid Foundation - goes on like a liquid - but feels like a powder. Having a history of acne and skin problems, I need a lot of coverage to achieve a flawless look. To say I love this foundation would be an understatement! Covering my entire face literally took just a few drops of the liquid foundation. Younique also has an incredible line of primer and powders - all using natural minerals so they won't clog your pores!

For my makeover, Chris had me start out with the Glorious Face & Eye Primer before following up with the liquid foundation and Moonstruck Beachfront Bronzer and Moodstruck Minerals Blusher Click HERE to check out Younique's full line of makeup just for your face!

Younique Lips

When it comes to my facial features, I'd say my lips are probably my least favorite. I was definitely not gifted with full luscious lips and so lip gloss has become my favorite friend! Younique makes a fantastic lip stain called Stiff Upper Lip (I'm wearing "Shy") which goes on like liquid and dries as a stain. You can sip coffee, kiss your honey, and reapply Chapstick or Lip Gloss as much as you want - the Stiff Upper Lip Stain remains! I love the Lucrative Lip Gloss (I'm wearing "Loveable") which feels like silk every time you put it on! The shine of the gloss is unbeatable and the two of these products together are the perfect way to highlight your lips not just during the holidays, but all year 'round!

Stiff Upper Lip - $22

Lucrative Lip Gloss -  $15

Younique Eyes

I love the sparkle that comes with the holidays and Younique eye shadows bring that sparkle to my eyes with their amazing products! For the eye portion of the makover, Chris used the Palette 1 Moodstruck Addiction Eye Shadows. I have a very fair complexion and I love the dramatic, yet natural look that these shadows help me achieve - but I gotta say, the effect my eyes get with the Splurge Cream Shadow is stunning! For extravagant lids that glisten, look no further than Splurge-luxurious, long-wearing cream shadow fit for a queen. With this set of three creamy eye shadows, you'll turn heads wherever life takes you. (Younique) Don't let the Christmas lights be the only thing glistening this holiday season, let your eyes do the sparkling!

Moodstruck Addiction Eye Shadows  $49 (each palette)

Splurge Cream Shadow - $70 (Set of 3)

Younique 1 Check out the difference in those peepers! The eye on the right is with the full "eye makeover", they eye on the left is 100% natural.
