A beautiful woman is first and foremost beautiful on the inside, then the outside, agree?
But sometimes, a little help on the outside ain’t a bad thing, especially when the products used are top notch, and beneficial for your health.
Enter Savvy Minerals by Young Living.
And talk about empowering! Gone are the days of reaching for chemical based cosmetics.
Savvy Minerals are free from talc, lead, bismuth, mineral oil, parabens and fragrances. All these chemicals that are present in a massive number of existing cosmetics, have a scary term associated with them called bioaccumulation. With prolonged exposure to these toxins, there’s a chance of altering RNA/DNA resulting in cancerous cells. Not something we want our kids to inherit for sure.
Savvy Minerals is totally chemical free. Yay!
Savvy also employs, Arrowroot Powder and Kaolin Clay, both agents are calming to the skin, help to absorb excess oil and make the skin feel silky smooth. This is important because most mineral makeup uses bismuth, a metal mineral that when worked into the pores, can actually aggravates the pores and causes irritation and breakouts. Savvy Minerals last all day long, but looks like you’ve got hardly any make up on. It’s that natural.
We recently had a Savvy Minerals make over session and the women (from all races and walks of life) turn out gorgeous!
As it turned out, these novices at make up, managed to apply it like professionals. (ahem!) A big tip – priming the skin is key. Make sure you use Young Living’s ART skincare collection to wash, tone and moisturize before the make up application. This ensures the make up takes, and glides on like silk, on a perfectly primed canvas.
For our workshop, we worked mainly with :
Foundation : Warm no 3 (for the darker skinned) warm 1 for fair-skinned
Cheek bones contouring : Dark no 3 (for tanned skin) Dark 2 (for fairer skin)
Best kept secret base eyeshadow
Eye shadow Determined on the crease
Wanderlust under the brow
Multitasker wet eyeliner
Lip gloss Abundant
Lipstick Uptown Girl
Brush set (You will need all the brushes. Note: the brush actually indicates what it’s used for which is a huge plus. You may however, use the smaller brushes for more control when contouring and applying the finishing touches to the face)
Prime skin. Make sure you use Young Living’s ART skincare collection to wash, tone and moisturize before the make up application. This ensures the make up takes, and glides on like silk.
Misting spray – 2 pumps to the brush. Tap Foundation into cap. Give it a good swirl with the foundation brush. Apply layer by layer, building for a better coverage with each application.
Foundation is applied followed by eyebrows, eyeshadow, eyeliner, finally blusher, lipstick and gloss.
Final touches :
Dark 3 along the bridge of the nose on each side. Blend with fingers.
Diamond veil along the center of face (use blending brush), starting with forehead, along middle of nose, then the hairlip, and dimple of the chin.
Savvy Minerals make up as a product, on the whole, was easy to use and very versatile.
