To help transform tired-looking features, Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics introduces a new illuminating wonder! The Eye-lluminating Duo is a dual-ended multi-purpose nude eye liner pencil designed to brighten, reflect light, and accentuate. The oversized natural eye liner pencil features two neutral tones, Matte (pink-nude) and Shimmer (an iridescent champagne-beige), that can be used to create many effects.
To use as an eyeshadow base, apply to bare lids and blend with a Concealer Brush. To enhance eyes, draw in the inner corners and blend. To give eyebrows a little “lift,” apply beneath the brow bones…the list goes on. The creamy-smooth formula contains Mango Seed Oil (an emollient skin conditioner with antioxidant properties), Macadamia Nut Oil (an exceptionally hydrating plant extract), and Microcrystalline Wax (an emulsifier that provides a solid-smooth texture for a tug-free application).
Below, you can see how I’ve lined my bottom lash line only (very easy to use and stays put) with the Shimmer end and how easily it blends into my natural skin tone. My eyes look fresh and bright without the harsh line of stark, chalk white. Using a nude eyeliner (a shade slightly lighter than your skin tone) creates a much softer and more natural bright-eyed look.
I love this look (from the Louis Vuitton Spring 2012 show inspired by 60’s mod) with heavy lashes on top (try Josie Maran GOGO Instant Volume Argan Mascara) and Matte nude eyeliner around the entire eye including on the bottom lash line to freshen and brighten eyes. If you want to top this look off with peach cheeks and lips, try using 100% Pure’s Lip & Cheek Tint in Peach Glow or Vapour Organic Beauty’s Aura Classic Multi-Use Blush in Spark.
Experiment, play, and have some fun with Youngblood’s new “master of illusion” and dual-ended natural eye pencil. Can’t wait to hear how you’re using it!
