You are probably finding it interesting that this gluten free gal isn’t writing about food this time around. It is always good to get creative and change things up, but on this sunny summer day of vacation it seems fitting to change things up and write about something other than food.
Maintaining a gluten free lifestyle is much easier in this era than it was ten years ago, but do you ever stop to think, what is in your makeup? Usually you are thinking, ‘oh what is that ingredient on the menu at a Restaurant,’ or what is in that cupcake that you want so bad at your local baker, right? Maybe it is time to stop and think that there are also harmful chemicals and additives in your makeup products, also known as parabens and synthetics.
As much as it is important to focus on the ingredients in your foods, it is also important to focus on what ingredients are in the makeup you put on your face and on your body. The lotions you use on both face and the rest of your body affect you almost more than any food is digested. To your demise and surprise, makeup is also something that those following a gluten free lifestyle should pay close attention to.
Makeup is something that mostly all women wear on a daily basis, whether it be just a brush of powder on the face or some black or brown eye liner under the eyes. Gluten free and vegan makeup is available and this gluten free gal has discovered some great new products for the face to share with you all.
Younique is a relatively new company that has been around for two years now. They are one of, if not the fastest growing makeup company ever. Their business model is similar to that of other’s in the marketplace where you can order online or from a direct representative from the company. The products are hypoallergenic, not tested on animals, sulfate free, paraben free, along with various items are gluten free and vegan.
Younique’s number one selling product is their 3D lash mascara, and the mascara is gluten free, yet not vegan as it contains beeswax, but the product naturally based and applies in three easy and quick steps. It sells for $29.00(USD) plus shipping and is available nationwide online.
Younique has a wide array of products that also includes, non-smudging eye liners in various colors and they use quirky and clever names for all their products. Some of their eye pigments which are loose powder eye shadows denote names like heartbroken and precocious so it makes it fun to pick out the various colors. They also have lip stains that do not contain lead, like some of the other lip stains on the market, lip pencils, cream eye shadows, bb cream foundation, pressed powders and blushers and so many others.
The company continues to find new and improved ways to create new products for all skin types and most importantly without all the harsh chemicals contained in most makeup products. Not to mention they have an amazing 14 day love it guarantee, which means, love the product(s) or your money back (less shipping).
Since Younique is growing so fast, be sure to stay tuned as they are unveiling some really great products. Younique’s even bigger focus besides their makeup line is the Foundation they launched to help women who have been sexually abused. They recently launched their not for profit foundation and have been accepting applications for women who would like to apply. The founders, Melanie and Derek’s (a sister and brother partnership) dream was that they wanted to help others and they are doing just that by having launched the foundation.
