Younique expanding to Germany, Italy, France and Spain?!

So we have some exciting news coming up this month with Younique.  We are expanding to not one, not two but FOUR European countries thanks the AMAZING success in the UK!

dior v younique

The UK had over £5 million worth of sales in it’s first month alone!  How mind boggling is it that a company could go from 0 – £5 million with NO paid advertising?

I am looking for bloggers and beauty lovers in Germany, Italy, France and Spain to get in touch with me if they are interested in learning more about Younique.  I would LOVE to share my business with you and help you get in at the launch of Younique in YOUR country so you can be the mover and the shaker that achieves success.

favorite mascara 2  I would also like to point out that the first Black level presenter in each new country gets flown to the USA and given a cheque for $10,000!!  What an amazing opportunity this is for you to be THAT person.  In the UK the first Black level presenter was achieved in 3 days!  She had networked prior to the launch and built a team of empowered women ready for success and success was what we have achieved.

If you currently work for another Network Marketing company in these countries, then you KNOW how vital it is to get in there at the start and how much this can have an effect on your level of success.

Create Chloe Goodmans look using cruelty free make-up!

I have been watching Celeb Big Brother and I was loooooving Chloe Goodmans make-up every time I seen her so I thought I would do a quick blog on it.

If you too like her look then the great news is I can tell you what to use to recreate it with Younique products which are cruelty free (undergoing the proceedure to get their leaping bunny).  For a full list of items and prices check out the end of the post.
I would start with our Glorious Primer for the base of your make-up.  It gives an amazingly smooth silky base to prep the skin for your foundation.  I find that 1 pump is enough to cover my whole face and so feel that for £30 this item is amazing value for money as it is going to last me forever.
Next I would go for the BB Flawless bb cream.  This offers medium coverage and despite having an uneven skintone it does a fab job of evening it all out.
bb creams 1
While the BB Cream is one that fights shine, I do still like to use our Touch Powder compact to set it and ensure I don’t get any shine and pair it up with our Moodstruck Mineral Blush in Sweet.  The blush is a loose powder and a little goes a long way so my advice would be careful not to overload your brush.
Blusher 4 Foundation - mineral touch
Our 3D Mascara is by far Youniques best seller as it gives amazing results!  So it goes without saying that this is the mascara I am going to suggest to recreate Chloes look!  It is a 2 step mascara that gives the effect of false lashes due to the green tea fibers that it attaches to your own lashes and can be easily washed off with your make-up at the end of the day.
mascara 2For your lips I have 2 options or you could use them both together for maximum effect.  Our pencils offer a matte long lasting colour and to give that pin up lip that Chloe sported on the show I would suggest Primal or use our Lucrative Lipgloss in Lethal for a red lip with a shine.
lip gloss colours 2My final item is optional and it is to fill the brows.  I would suggest our Moodstruck Mineral Pigment in Infatuated as it is a lovely matte brown.  Great to define and fill the brow area without being too in your face.  You can use the pigments dry or wet and of course the brown can be used on the eyes as well as the brow area.

So to recap:

*  Glorious Primer (£30)
* Touch Powder compact to set (£25)
* Moodstruck Mineral Blush in Sweet (£23)
* 3D False Lash effect Mascara (£23)
* Moodstruck Mineral Pigment in Infatuated (for filling your brows) £10
* Precision Pencil in Primal for matte lips(£12) and/or
* Lucrative Lipgloss in Lethal for lips with a shine(£12)
Of course you can mix and match which items you would like with what you already have in the make-up bag at home BUT these items would give you the full look for that flawless skin, popping lips and amazing lashes!

Life and beauty updates

So I am a bad egg, I haven’t updated you in months!

I did have good reason though – baby no.2 is now 2 months old and boy does she keep me busy!  Shes a beauty though so I will forgive her.

Massage course is half way done, I have missed 4 classed due to baby being born but doing well!  2 formatives down and 2 to go before my sumative 😀

Hardest thing to fit in is the coursework, my time just seems to fly by without me getting it done yet doh!  It shouldn’t be any more than 0 pages long so a few days of hard work will sort it out.

In a fit of madness, I also signed up to Younique for their presenter kit and to keep me out of trouble while off work lol.  Im quite enjoying it actually and happy to give you information on it if you would like some honest feedback 🙂 will take you to my facebook page.  It’s cruelty free (going through the process for their leaping bunny) so that makes me happy.

Talking of work, I have 10 keep in touch days and decided to go in to work on Saturday just past – loved it!  Forgot how much I love Lush at Christmas, Customers are so happy and the whole atmosphere is amazing.  Also loving the Hot Toddy shower gel!  It smells like cola bottles or if you know the bath range well – it smells like Melty Snowman who I loooooove.  I bought him and Butter Bear to enjoy this weekend ❤

After a year off… it’s back to school for me :)

Last night was the start of my next venture in beauty.  Level 3 body massage.

I arrived a little late as my baby brain mixed up the times, whoops.  The class was shorter than expected, it ran from 6 until 9 rather than the expected 5:45 to 10.

It started with a run through of what we will be covering and what is expected of us.  I was shocked to learn there are no online tests for this, rather a project that we each have to put together containing set information.

After this we were all provided with handouts with steps for “back massage” which the tutor then demonstrated on one class member.  Once the demonstration was complete we paired up for practice.

Due to my rather large bump (due in 2 weeks) I made a team of 3 so I wouldn’t prevent somebody being able to practice.  I still felt that I learned a lot being able to watch and call out the next steps for the routine for my partners.  Once the bump is here I am confident that the other half will be happy to let me practice my back massage routine as often as I like so I can’t say I am worried I will fall behind, because I don’t believe I will.

As for what we need to purchase for the class, not a lot really.  Uniform is optional although it hasn’t changed from my level 2 uniform and so I could wear it again once I have ditched some baby weight.  A folder for my hand outs and a body brush are all that I am required to buy with further options of essential oils and headbands for clients.

I had intended to do reflexology as well as massage but the prices on the website were very wrong and thus it would have cost almost double my expectations to do the course and a lot of kit to buy.  For that reason I decided to put it off for a while but I would very much so still like to do it in the future sometime.

Now to decide which essential oils I would like to use and cost out some body brushes – any suggestions very welcome 🙂

Ethical fashion

I love this blog and while it is not to do with ethical beauty products it would be a much kinder world if we all voted with our purse and bought ethical fashions too x

New courses for September

After the last year of working in Lush (Which I am loving) I am due to go off on maternity leave in September.  So what can I do with the “free time” I asked myself and decided I should do an evening course in another beauty discipline.

Looking at the local college prospectus I decided I would do my level 3 in Massage.  This makes sense as it is very much an essential skill in the beauty field.  The course is 4 hours per week and will be done and dusted by January!   I did however notice a level 2 course in Reflexology too… so yeah, I think I might do it as well. 

Both classes are on different nights and both only 4 hours so even when the baby is here, I won’t be gone for too long and I have no doubt Daddy and the army of family around us will do a great job in my absence for those 2 evenings.

I have also contacted Sweet Squared with regards to doing the CND Shellac Conversion course in Dublin (I had wanted to do OPI but it seems they offer no training in Ireland at all!).  The Conversion course is only a day course and will be easy to slot around work, I just need to hold tight until the Dublin store contact me with their next available training date.

Looking forward to ordering the kit for the course and I think I might treat myself to some CND Vinylux too while I am at it.

So while I may have been quiet on here for a while – the Beauty Student in me will be back in full action in the coming months with more blog posts tracking my journey and reviewing the products I am using along the way (as per usual all of my choices will be cruelty free).
