A Lovely You: Summer Beauty with Blown Away

Youngblood Boudoir lipstick, step 1A lovely life isn’t only about feeling good on the inside. Looking good is just as important. So much so that the two usually go hand in hand.

There’s no better way to look good and feel your best than by emphasizing the great features you have while creating smooth, healthy skin. There are so many fun ways to do that, but of course I love the classic, no-fuss, natural look.

Hair and makeup are not my strong points, so Blown Away was kind enough to help us get a stunning, natural look for Summer. After all, we’re not in the pool or at the beach all day, every day. There are weddings, bachelorette parties, dates and fun dinners with friends.

Blown Away’s products of choice are Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics made of natural, finely ground materials from the earth sans the common irritants found in conventional makeup. Bonus: they provide sun protection. I’m totally for this!

Last week, they showed us how to do a beach wave blowout. Today, makeup artist, Jennifer Nicole, shows us a Summer beauty look on the gorg Lauren Hoekstra. She first applied mineral foundation to even out the skin, then some light eye-enhancing makeup.
