What Foundation type is the best for my skin?

When it comes to Foundations, they really are as the name suggests – a Foundation or a base for the perfect makeup look. But how do you know which type of Foundation is best for you?  In this post we dive deep into the 5 different Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics Foundation types and the differences between them all.


Youngblood Liquid Mineral Foundations

Youngblood Liquid Mineral Foundations

Youngblood’s Liquid Mineral Foundation is a great option for those who are used to using a liquid version.  It has a fairly thin consistency, giving you a super light-weight feel, while still being buildable and creating a good medium coverage and luminous finish.  It is also super hydrating, containing concentrated dead sea mineral water as well as green tea, calendula and cucumber to sooth and calm the skin.  It’s ideal for sensitive skins, post laser or chemical peels, dry and dehydrated and mature skins.  It is available in 15 different shades and is definitely a crowd favourite and one of our most popular options at Luminescence Beauty Therapies.  Just remember to deal it in with a setting powder!


Youngblood Pressed Mineral Foundation

Youngblood Pressed Mineral Foundation

Available in 9 different shades, this pressed compact contains Rice Setting Powder to assist in the reduction of shine throughout the day, making it ideal for oilier or combination skin types.  This also means it is not essential to finish with a setting powder either, as it is already built in to the product!  Teens love this one as it is easy to apply and doesn’t leave any shine.  It is also a great one to keep in the hand bag for makeup touch-ups throughout the day or evening.  Leaving a soft matte finish, this Foundation is able to be built up from a sheer to medium coverage where needed.  It can be used on its own or over your liquid foundation to create a heavier more matte coverage.


Youngblood Loose Mineral Foundations

Youngblood Loose Mineral Foundations

The hero Foundation from the Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics range, and the original foundation created by Pauline Youngblood, is the Loose Mineral Foundation available in 16 different shades.  This Foundation can be used as a concealer, foundation and powder all in one, and creates a luminous finish with a sheer to full buildable coverage.  Perfect for all skin types, using only 100% mineral ingredients, this breathable formulation won’t clog pores and feels very light-weight even with a full coverage.  It’s a great one for all skin types!


Youngblood Creme to Powder Mineral Foundations

Youngblood Crème to Powder Mineral Foundations

The Crème to Powder Mineral Foundation glides on like a crème and sets into a satin like powder finish giving a sheer to medium coverage.  This particular Foundation is ideal for more mature clients, especially those who are used to the old school style pancake foundations.  It’s also great for people with rosacea with the added benefits of skin soothing botanicals.  This Foundation is available in 8 shades.


Youngblood Mineral Tints

Youngblood Mineral Radiance Moisture Tints

Available in 6 different shades, this sheer hydrating moisturiser leaves a luminous, tinted, dewy finish and is great for those who don’t want to wear a fuller coverage foundation from day to day.  The oil free formula is good for all skin types.  It also contains kiwi, marine water and Vitamin E to nourish the skin and provide a boost of nutrients while protecting the skin from environmental damage.
