This shoot was for testing out a new product that I’ve fallen in love with recently. Younique Makeup, I first heard about it through a friend, then a cousin, then another cousin, then another friend….well, you get the picture. I finally tried some basic products and loved it! But there was another side to just how it felt that I noticed…..I noticed that it photographs really well! Just as well as another beloved cosmetic product that the industry loves so much. I hear time and time again, that the ‘beloved’ product felt horrible. It weighs you down, makes you break out. Yes, photographs beautifully and has a great staying power. A little too great actually, I once tried a lip stain of their for a Film Awards Show. I wanted a cherry red to match the dress I’d be wearing, but it came out pink against my skin color. :/ It lasted for 3 days even after trying makeup remover, rubbing alcohol, and lots of elbow grease. I hated it, wanted it off. The foundation and powder looked great yet just as everyone’s reports, it was heavy and felt cake-y. When I tried Younique’s Liquid Touch Foundation, I was sold! It didn’t feel as any other foundation that I had tried before! I hardly felt like I was wearing any at all. Then I learned about the Younique Foundation and all the good that they do for those who have been through traumatic experiences in their lives from sexual abuse. Younique Products exist because of the foundation! But they took it one step further, these products are all natural, and because they are all natural, they don’t need to test them on animals! They just keep blowing me away! The 3D Fiber Lash Mascara is my favorite product!
Anyhoo, I wanted to try it out on someone else. I set up with my friend and model, Alex Shuey, to come by for a photo shoot. She mentioned that her eyelashes were in recovery from multiple eyelash extensions. Perfect! So here’s my “test” shoot! Testing these great products…..you really need to try them out for yourself! Looking through these, keep in mind, minimal editing has been done. No retouching of the face has been done.
