Tis’ the season to sparkle and glow

Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics Illuminate Palette

This Christmas party season is all about the natural glow achieved by strobing.

Introducing the brand new Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics Illuminate Palette (RRP €45). This ultimate party season palette consists of six illuminating shades perfect for blushing, bronzing and concealing on-the-go. These pink and bronze colours will enhance the natural light of your skin during these dull winter months and it is the perfect Christmas gift for friends and family.

Youngblood’s Illuminate Palette is paraben, talc and oil free and features the crème shades Pink, Pearl, Natural, Bronze, Gold and Peach. Pearl is a fantastic base shade great for the brow bone or upper cheeks. Pink and Pearl are baby pink shades perfect for adding a natural blush to the cheeks. Natural, Bronze and Gold can be used as bronzers to add radiance to the cheeks. These highly pigmented colours will light up your skin for the dancefloor and stay put all night.

How to get the best out of your Youngblood Illuminate Palette this Christmas:

Apply the Illuminate shades to areas where light naturally hits your face. 

1. Apply the Pearl shade to upper cheek bone, brushing up to the temple. For added glow, go over your blush with Pearl, Natural, Pink or Peach.

2. Apply Pearl on the brow bone to lift the eyebrow.

3. Continue with the nose bridge, working from the forehead and following the T-zone until the chin.

4. For the look of fuller lips, apply on the cupid's bow above the lip line.

5. For a healthy, luxurious look, use Bronze or Gold as a glowy finish.
