Pauline Youngblood was a paramedical aesthetician to dermatologists and plastic surgeons, since her time as a medical aesthetician she founded Youngblood Cosmetics in 1996 and is president of the company.
“The concept of mineral makeup was great, but the quality was missing,” “The colors weren’t realistic; they were too pink or orange, and they looked artificial.” Pauline says.
Pauline worked with chemists to create a makeup line that would cover raw, inflamed or discolored skin, while allowing it to breathe and heal. More than 15 years later, Pauline’s Natural Mineral Foundation is the flagship product, and Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics is now a complete line, offering dozens of products in a comprehensive palette of shades with realistic skin tones and beautiful, natural finishes. Youngblood continues to create top-quality products that are innovative in both formulation and packaging.
Why Mineral Makeup?
A mineral is an inorganic solid substance that occurs naturally in rocks and in the ground.When used in cosmetics, these micronized crystals reflect light to help smooth the appearance of fine lines and blemishes. Did you know mineral makeup does not support growth of bacteria or micorobes and provides natural sun protection?
Although many mineral lines claim to be “jet-milled” or “triple-milled,” not all milling processes achieve superior results and, oftentimes, result in potentially dangerous ultra-fine particles known as nanoparticles. Youngblood does not use nanoparticles in its formulas.
All in all Youngblood cosmetics will allow you to wear full makeup without looking over-done and is great for keeping your skin healthy without breaking the bank!
