Clean Up Your Beauty Routine With Savvy Minerals
Ladies, are you ready to clean up your beauty routine with Savvy Minerals?! Who knew the hidden toxins lurking in our make-up and the sneaky way labeling laws help the company and not the consumer? Not this gal!! But now that I know, I choose better for myself and my family. Young Living recently introduced Savvy Minerals, the brainchild of YL Member Melissa Poepping! I immediately made the switch!! So did a bunch of folks, including Kristin Cavalarri, who says "Young Living is a brand you can always trust."
For years, Melissa wondered how to purchase clean make-up, and when she couldn't find it, she worked hard to formulate her own!! Young Living saw the need for Savvy Minerals and offered to buy her brand!! Isn't that amazing?! I love a company that will listen to it's members, and adjust it's product line to meet the demand for truly CLEAN products!! Savvy Minerals is free (as in zip, zero, zilch) of the following harmful ingredients:
- Mineral Oil
- Nano Particles
- Synthetic or Lake Dyes
- Synthetic Fragrance
- Synthetic Colorants
Here are some simple tutorials to help you get started or introduce your friends to Savvy Minerals:
Start by being a product of the product! Learn the product line and try the products on yourself!! They are amazing, provide great coverage and are simple to use! Here's a tutorial on placing your first order! As you listen, write down your color preferences, so you can create your first order here. After the video, check the graphics for color names and options!
When choosing a foundation, think about this... If your wrist veins are blue in tone, choose the cool color foundations, and if then tend to be more green, then choose the warm tones. Dark tones are recommended for people of color.
If you are in love with that famous NARS blush color mentioned in the video, I Do Believe You're Blushin' is the color for you!! It's the one I chose with Warm 2 for my skin tone, and I love the combination! Ready to order right now, aren't you? Yup. Me, too!
If you're like me, bronzer is not something I've been using, because it was just one more layer of chemicals I felt I didn't need. Know what I mean? Now, we have a clean option!! Check out this tutorial on how to correctly contour using Savvy Minerals!
And here are the color options, which I especially love, because every woman DESERVES to wear a crown!!
Now what about eye shadows? Did you know you can use eye shadow to enhance the color of your natural eye color? A good general rule is to use eye shadows that are the opposite color of your eye color on the color wheel. For example, I have green eyes. On the color wheel, green is opposite of red, so I typically try to wear eye shadows with reddish undertones to help make the green in my eyes stand out. I love a good plum, maroon, and browns with warm tones for my green eyes! For blue eyes, shadows with a more orange undertone will make your eyes POP! Try a pretty copper, gold, or warm brown. Brown eyes are the most versatile (in my opinion) and can pull off a lot of different colors. I have found the plum, blues, and bronzed browns can really make brown eyes stand out! (Thanks, Haley!)
Remember singing, "I love my lips" with the Veggie Tales crew? Well, I didn't feel that way because knowing that most lipsticks contain lead, beetle parts, mercury, and other stuff I just don't want to apply to my face!!
I love that our Lip Gloss stays intact without a nasty, toxic chemical reaction to keep it there!! And no crushed beetle body parts, beaver bum excretions, or other gross ingredients that don't belong on your beautiful face!! Or mine.
Last but not least, don't skip this product!! This is the secret sauce to making mineral make-up look GOOD on all skin types!! Check out the video above if you didn't catch why you must have the Misting Spray!! Plus, the essential oils in this formula make an amazing natural fragrance, and people will be asking what scent you are wearing!!
Okay, so we all like savings right? Sometimes we talk ourselves out of spending money on things because we THINK we are spending a lot. Well, I am not typically a couponer or a price matcher but I thought I would compare and contrast the cost of YL's makeup with a few other leading companies.
Here are my interesting finds for the basic things we all buy when we think of makeup:
Young Living Savvy Minerals (Wholesale Price):
Eyeshadow (one color)-15.25
(w/out Lipstick-$130.25; w/out Lip Gloss-$125.50)
BeautyCounter Makeup (non-consultant price):
(w/out Lipstick-$167; w/out Lip Gloss-$168)
Bare Minerals Makeup (Retail-only option):
(w/out Lipstick-$132.50; w/out Lip Gloss-$134.50)
So, as you can see: 1.) Young Living's makeup is NOT expensive; 2.) Hello, INGREDIENTS??? :) I mean, the stuff I can trust is really no more then the stuff I can't trust. Maybe you get a tad more (like multiple eyeshadows or a duo blush pack) but I am happy to get quality over quantity. :)
AND BEST POINT OF ALL: Neither of these other 2 give me POINTS BACK when I order!!!! With my YL order I can add these to my ER order, get 25% back (if you're just starting you will get 10% and work your way up) which is $38.25 back on an order of $153!!!!! So, what does that? Does Target? Ulta? Amazon?Just something to chew on. :) Feel free to share this. :) End of math lesson. (Original author unknown)
The bottom line is, Savvy Minerals is a great deal!! And, when you create an account here, and then share your link with others, Young Living will reward you with sweet cash bonuses for every person who places an order as well, so it's a win-win, cause then you can afford MORE MAKE-UP!! :-P Want to learn how to share Savvy Minerals as an income producing activity?
