Makeup is Skincare

Makeup is Skincare

Dec 22, 2022Rebecca Riggio

Before we knew better, skincare and makeup were completely separate. In fact, most of the routine skincare regimens were necessary to remedy the poor effects of wearing makeup all day. But when something is sitting on your face day in and day out, it shouldn’t be bad for your skin. In fact, it should be great for your skin. 

With our products that are carefully formulated with the best natural ingredients, the simple act of wearing makeup is also taking care of your skin. And at the holidays, you can treat your loved ones or yourself to the luxury of makeup as skincare (without breaking the bank). At Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics, we source the finest ingredients and use cutting-edge techniques to create makeup that offers you beautiful coverage while also fortifying your skin. 


Gifts that Show You Care

With the most natural ingredients available and milling techniques that make the most of their attributes, our gift sets will be a fantastic way to show your love for someone this holiday season. What you are giving is a makeup set, but what the recipient receives is so much more.

Our Let it Glow Face Set includes several nourishing ingredients. Our Hydra Glow Treatment Balm will nourish skin with nutrient-rich antioxidants and complexion-boosting ingredients, whether you wear it alone or mixed in with foundation to increase your glow. The Lunar Dust in Dusk is a loose highlighting powder that you can use on the eyes or cheeks or mixed with the balm for a customizable cream highlighter. These products will smooth, hydrate, and highlight beautiful skin. 

Another gift set, our Better Not Pout Lip and Cheek Duowill offer recipients our Mineral Crème Lipstick in Vixen, which is a blue-based red that will complement all skin tones. Our pressed mineral blush in Sugar Plum will offer color with a golden reflective shimmer. The main ingredients in both the lipstick and blush are jojoba seed oil, which conditions and hydrates skin, Vitamin E, which combats pollution and smooths dry skin, and mica, which adds a subtle sheen and a silky-smooth texture. Aloe Vera extract calms, hydrates, and heals. 

Another gift setNaughty and Nice Lip and Cheek Duois perfect for anyone on your list and includes our Mineral Crème Lipstick in Blushing Nude as well as our pressed mineral blush in Tangier which offers a peachy pink with hints of a gold shimmer. With all-natural ingredients and our special milling process, you will be hydrating and smoothing your skin even as you wear makeup. 


Find a Beautiful Foundation: A Trio of Choices

Although you might be shopping for someone else at the holidays, it is never a bad idea to treat yourself to something special. If you are looking for full coverage without a lot of cakiness or unnatural ingredients clogging your face, our Pressed Mineral Foundation is the perfect find. For normal, combination, or oily skin, our light to medium coverage foundation will not only smooth out your skin’s texture but will also mattify your skin. We use the finest of ingredients so that you get the makeup coverage you desire and the skincare you deserve. Our aloe vera hydrates calms, and heals the skin, while Vitamin E moisturizes and soothes dry or irritated skin, especially caused by the winter weather. We add jojoba seed oil to further condition and heal your inflamed skin, as it adds hydration. Mica adds a subtle sheen and a smooth texture, while rice starch absorbs oil naturally without drying your skin. Using honeysuckle flower extract adds a rich antioxidant with antibacterial properties, further improving your skin’s tone.  

Another choice a lightweight loose mineral foundation that will leave you with a healthy glow. Our best-selling Natural Loose Mineral Foundation for dry, normal, combination, and oily skin will conceal any imperfections you might have and cover rosacea, melasma, or acne as a second skin. Lightweight and versatile, our natural ingredients will not clog your pores or irritate your skin. As a non-drying product, this will help you to attain an airbrushed quality. Mica adds a subtle sheen, while iron oxides provide pigment variations. Titanium dioxide offers sun protection and also reduces shine. 

With only a few ingredients, this non-drying formula allows the skin to completely breathe as if you have nothing on your skin. Our specialty milling process, using the highest grade of raw materials available, makes a huge impact on your skin’s ability to breathe without aggravating any skin conditions. 

Finally, we highly recommend our Liquid Mineral Foundationfor normal, dry, and combination skin. This provides sheer to medium coverage with a luminous finish. Our deep-sea hydrating complex of ocean minerals is the quintessential example of makeup acting like skincare. We start with plant squalene, which balances oil production with amazing anti-aging and anti-inflammatory benefits for eczema and acne. Cactus flower extract settles inflammation, while cucumber extract soothes and relieves puffy skin. Our plantain leaf extract will minimize the appearance of pores, while also offering skin-smoothing properties. The flowers of calendula, green tea and chamomile provide antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, and smoother skin. Magnolia bark extract works hard to combat wrinkles and also promotes skin elasticity while reducing redness. Willow bark extract reduces signs of aging and wrinkles, while grapefruit extract tones and firms the skin. All is infused with deep seawater to deliver intense moisture.
