Yep, you heard me…. I am now a Younique Presenter and my website is Suburban Makeup Mom!!
I don’t really believe it myself honestly. I never had a desire to work in direct sales. Not even a thought about it actually.
Well, that is until I tried their products and I absolutely loved them. I knew I didn’t want to be without them! Honestly. I love these products.
If you know me you know I’m not (or wasn’t) much of a makeup person. I used good products (mostly MAC) and supplemented with random Brands from Target.
If you were to look in my makeup bag a few months ago, here is what you would have found:
- Mineral powder
- One color of eyeshadow
- Lip gloss
Yep. That’s it. Four total items. And two of those products were even given to me two years ago and yikes! I still used them (eye shadow and lip gloss).
Most days I went without any makeup. I am a stay at home mom of three. I own my own small business (My Hello Designs), but do it out of my house. I don’t have to get ready for work so by the time I would get home from morning carpool who really cares if I did or didn’t have makeup on.
Then I started feeling tired and less motivated. I didn’t have much energy and felt like I was in a slump. Jim was working crazy hours so I really was extra tired, but I still just felt blah.
I decided to order some Younique products (six months after a good friend started her Younique business). I sent Jim a text that said:
I bought myself a thank you gift for surviving the last six weeks of your work schedule. Your welcome.
The products arrived a few days later and after trying them the first time I was in love! Then I decided I needed to try their 3D Fiber Lash Mascara since that’s the item they are most known for.
I signed up to be a presenter. Makeup doesn’t define the person you are. Wear makeup or don’t. I don’t care either way. I didn’t for years and I was just fine with that. I sill don’t wear it every day. But I do feel different when I do. I feel more put together and that motivates me. It may not motivate you and that’s fine.
Regardless, we will still be friends. You are beautiful on the inside and out. The makeup is just a fun do-it-because-it-makes-you-feel-good bonus!
So there. That’s my story. That’s how I started this extra little business of mine. I couldn’t be more excited to share my story and journey with you all. And don’t worry! There will be fun giveaways and games along the way.
