WIN: $500 Worth of Youngblood Makeup!

Whether you’re a beauty addict or never picked up an eye pencil in your life, Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics has something for everybody. As Spa Week’s Fall 2011 Exclusive Cosmetic Sponsor, they are giving one lucky winner $500 worth of makeup products. They are the premier luxury mineral cosmetics line with plenty of options for all skin types. Feeling overwhelmed? No worries! A Youngblood professional makeup artist will help guide you in picking the right products.

Founder, Pauline Youngblood, worked as a Medical  Aesthetician where she saw first hand how harsh chemicals were damaging her client’s skin. This inspired her to develop her own mineral makeup line that would help conceal your skin’s flaws but also allow it to breathe without causing irritation.

Youngblood prides itself  on their products not containing oils, chemicals, alcohol, artificial fragrances, or dyes. They don’t do animal testing. All  products are free of talc and other fillers that can clog or irritate skin. Made from pigments from the earth, mineral cosmetics are much healthier for your skin than typical cosmetics which can contain harsh petroleum dyes.  There’s a lower risk for allergic reactions with mineral makeup which do not support the growth of bacteria or microbes. They also have sun protective properties that keep your skin healthy and youthful.

With all these wonderful qualities, Youngblood is sure to attract some fans. Their celebrity following includes Jennifer Lopez, Hayden Panettierre, Heather Locklear, Mena Suvari, Cheryl Cole, and Nina Dobrev.

Now it’s your chance to enjoy these wonderful products! Contest ends October 31, 2011 – enter here.
