About the Founder

Pauline’s Story

Founder Pauline YoungbloodGranting women the power to conceal and correct imperfect complexions has always been the mission of Pauline Youngblood, founder and president of Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics. Pauline draws inspiration from nature as well as her own practical experience as a paramedical aesthetician to dermatologists and plastic surgeons.

During her career as a medical aesthetician, Pauline was in daily contact with patients who had severely traumatized skin from harsh laser treatments, acne, rosacea and cosmetic surgeries. Such patients often take up to six months before their skin returns to normal, and Pauline simply was not satisfied with the makeup options available.

Pauline began working with chemists to develop a suitable option? a product that would cover raw, inflamed or discolored skin, while allowing it to breathe and heal. This led to her initial work with natural mineral cosmetics.

"The concept of mineral makeup was great, but the quality was missing," Pauline says. "The colors weren't realistic; they were too pink or orange, and they looked artificial."

She began formulating her first loose mineral foundation, which provided excellent coverage and a natural appearance without clogging the skin. Pauline's patients experienced such dramatic success with her new formula that they continued using it long after their skin had healed. Before long, patients and friends convinced her to make this natural mineral foundation commercially available, and in 1996 Pauline founded Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics.

More than 15 years later, Pauline's Natural Mineral Foundation is the flagship product, and Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics is now a complete line, offering dozens of products in a comprehensive palette of shades with realistic skin tones and beautiful, natural finishes. Youngblood continues to create top-quality products that are innovative in both formulation and packaging.
Pauline's compassion led her to develop her first products in a medical setting. Today, her company carries on her original values: a passion for providing the healthiest, highest quality products, while empowering women to look and feel their best.

Why Youngblood

Of course, all mineral cosmetics are not created equal. Pauline Youngblood Soli, a pioneer in the industry, developed her first products in a medical setting, specifically for patients recovering from harsh medical procedures, such as laser or chemical peels, surgeries, and even cancer treatments. Her patients experienced such dramatic success that they continued using her formula long after their skin had healed, and urged her to make it commercially available.

Today, Youngblood is the premier mineral cosmetic line available, because of the luxury formulation, ideal milling process, and chic, upscale image and packaging. From the first moment you brush it on, you'll notice the incredibly silky feel, and a polished, natural finish, unlike any other makeup you've ever tried. Clean and lightweight, it allows your skin to breathe and is non-comedogenic (it won't block pores or cause irritation). Even with our flawless coverage, you'll feel like you're wearing no makeup at all. And unlike other mineral cosmetics, Youngblood never looks "glittery"; instead you'll radiate a natural, healthy glow. It's no wonder Youngblood has emerged as the clear standard, used in upscale skin care clinics and med-spas around the world.

Youngblood products are incredibly easy to use, long-lasting, and stand up to heat, humidity, and perspiration, no matter how active your lifestyle. Whether you're at the office or at the gym, our makeup is as high-performance as you are.
