NEW: Youngblood ILLUMINATE Highlighting Palette

Bright new strobe effects collection for all skin tones.

Pauline Youngblood, President and CEO of YOUNGBLOOD MINERAL COSMETICS embraces the light with the launch of the radiant and versatile new ILLUMINATE Highlighting Palette. Whether looking for a modern approach to blendable, transparent accents or wanting to trade up from lackluster for luminous, you’ve come to the right place.

“Whereas our CONTOUR Palette emphasizes structure and form for a classic, polished maquillage look,” says Philip Luque, Director of Makeup Artistry for the company, “the new ILLUMINATE Highlighting Palette is all about the natural play of light on the face with more subtle radiance and luminescent washes. Plus, the subtle strobe effect can wake up even the most exhausted-looking complexions. And depending on an individual’s coloring, the different shades can also be used as a blush, accent or pop of pearlescence anywhere.”
