Happy, Beautiful Me: Savvy Minerals

Happy, Beautiful Me: Savvy Minerals
These are notes I took based on the Happy, Beautiful Me: Savvy Minerals Convention 2020 Workshop by Wendy Ogden, Rita Morill, and Leslie Lewis. What a great session it was! Enjoy learning more about the new foundation and concealer!

These new Savvy Minerals products are clean, beautiful products that give you confidence about what you put on your skin. It’s the new standard of clean beauty!

The skin-loving, clean ingredients are lightweight and are rich in pigment for buildable coverage. It provides medium to full coverage that’s long-lasting without a heavy feel. It’s the holy grail of foundations! This foundation has been YEARS in the making!!!


There are 13 gorgeous shades with a forgiving application that allows you to choose your shade with confidence. More shades will be offered in the future to represent a wider range. Look for it in early 2021!

Self-smoothing, plant-based polymers condition and build a mesh-like layer on your skin, which helps to maintain moisture and create a smooth finish. It evens out skin and creates a radiant finish. They're comprised of CLEAN INGREDIENTS that are authentic, including ethically mined mica and Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood, creating a product that's creamy and weightless, as well as being nourishing with avocado and sunflower seed oils.

The foundation is brightening and good for your skin, locking in moisture all day. It provides medium to full coverage and is vegan and cruelty-free. This formula uses ethically mined, mica crystals which instantly brighten skin without shine. It creates an optical illusion, bouncing light off your skin. 

The foundations and concealers work on a variety of skin tones, plus you can mix colors to create your own, unique color blend. You can wear 2-3 shades and blend to match your skin tone throughout the year. They were created using the “Fitzpatrick Scale,” which is a color matching tool that’s based on skin-type and how your skin reacts to the sun. This scale has been used in the cosmetic industry for years. YL created shades for all 6 of the Fitzpatrick Scale skin tones.


Type 1 – skin burns very easily and doesn’t tan. Likely to have light blonde or red hair. (Porcelain, Ivory, Light 1 concealer)
Type 2 – Skill will usually burn in the sun, and has difficulty tanning (Buff, Fresh Beige, Natural Beige, Light 1 and 2 Concealer)
Type 3 – Skin will sometimes burn and will tan gradually (Natural beige, sand beige, honey, light 2, possibly medium 1 concealer)
Type 4 – Skin will tan easily and rarely burn (honey, tan, med. 1 or 2 concealer)
Type 5 – Skin will tan without burning (caramel, truffle, pecan, med 2 or dark 1 concealer)
Type 6 – Skin never burns and will tan very quickly (hazelnut, coconut, dark 2 concealer)


Match to your face, not your hand – your hand will be darker.

 ---> Watch this YL Training & Education video on FB that talks about the shades and gives you tips for choosing your color! It's super helpful!!!

You can play around with the coverage and the shade, including for contouring. Customize it just for YOU! For light, sheer coverage, use less, and use the blending sponge to sheer out.

The blending sponge is only around for a LIMITED TIME!!!!

You can easily create an airbrushed look with this liquid foundation. Self-smoothing plant polymers are what create an airbrushed look with instant, smooth appearance, along with even coverage, and helps hold the moisture on your skin. They also prevent evaporation and provide a moisture barrier to keep your skin hydrated and dewy. The foundation provides full coverage that is the same color of your skin tone and is long-lasting. It looks natural and also makes you look dewy. You can condition skin while helping to create a smooth layer, all while delivering ingredients and EOs without a greasy or heavy feel.

You can also use your foundation powder as a setting powder over your liquid foundation and concealer for a wear that lasts all day.


The concealer isn't heavy and is long-lasting, plus they have tea tree and manuka oils, which can help reduce the appearance of blemishes. There are 6 shades that cover really well and brighten and they don't cake or feel heavy. They conceal with a smooth finish that doesn’t settle into lines. They have the same plant polymers so they also don’t give a "crepe-y" look. You can apply them with YL’s concealer brush if you'd like.

Watch this quick video to learn more!
 
The 6 shades are: Light / Medium / Dark; 1 or 2 in each shade.

You can also mix these to create your own shade. Use one color to cover blemishes and a lighter color under the eye if you’d like.

These are the cleanest, best foundations and concealer on the market! SO excited!!!!

Happy Oiling!

Savvy Minerals: Colors & Where to Begin

Savvy Minerals: Colors & Where to Begin
Want to take advantage of the Savvy Minerals 25% off sale, but not sure what colors to choose or which products to try first? 

First of all, each of the colors are incredibly forgiving. The majority of people color matched are Warm 2 foundation, but if you're a cool shade, try Cool 2. Either are "middle ground" colors that are great options. I've found that I'm actually Cool 2 in the winter months and Warm 2-3 in the summer months. I often mix Warm 2 & 3 together in the summer. I tend to tan easily so my skin tone can change considerably just from being outside. 


Second, you can use the colors in multiple ways. For instance, blush colors can be used on lips and eyes and the multitasker can be used on brows, as eyeliner, to cover gray roots and even as lipliner! 


I find I go through the foundation the fastest, but even that lasts about 3 months for me and I wear makeup most days. The eye shadows last a SUPER long time - same with the multitasker, eyeliner, lipsticks, and glosses.  


Where should you start? That's totally up to you, but if you want a complete look, get a foundation, blush, multitasker, and the palette (my FAVORITE). If you can add in a bronzer, definitely do! 

Finish your look with a gloss or a lipstick.  Abundant gloss looks good on EVERYONE, but if you want a pop of color for the summer, my new favorite lip color is Sweet Life.  Looking for a more neutral lipstick? Try Wish or On a Whim. I wear those two colors ALL. THE. TIME.




WHY Savvy Minerals??? Because what's in it is...

And because of...


I chose Savvy Minerals when it first launched with Young Living because my husband ASKED me to ditch my chemical-laden products and go clean. 

I'm sure you've heard all about the clean beauty movement. Have you made the switch? If you have, what new colors are you adding with this sale and what are you restocking in your stash? Personally, I'm adding Bedazzled and Icon lipsticks and restocking on my blush and Warm 3 foundation. 

Two additional recommendations???  If you don't have the misting spray, you'll want to get that for sure. You'll use it with nearly everything. Also, get the primer that's right for you (mattifying for oily skin / hydrating for dry). It really makes a HUGE difference! 

Please reach out if you need help or have questions!

WHAT?! Savvy Minerals is 25% OFF?!?!

WHAT?! Savvy Minerals is 25% OFF?!?!

About 2 years ago when it was launched at Convention, I began switching over to YL's Savvy Minerals makeup - at my husband's request, believe it or not! 

Bri realized just how many chemicals I was putting on my face with my makeup each day and he wanted me to make the switch to clean products because he was honestly concerned about my health.

The awesome thing??? Not only are these free of all of the stuff that's horrible for our bodies, I actually love everything I've switched over to far more than what I had been using. Yes, that picture is of part of my stash on my makeup table. I really do LOVE my Savvy!

Which Gloss Looks Good on EVERYONE???

Which Gloss Looks Good on EVERYONE???
Which gloss did they say at Beauty School looked good on EVERYONE??? ABUNDANT (the first one pictured). True confession - I love lip colors. I have every single one of these glosses and love each of them. On Sunday, I mixed Uptown Girl lipstick with Anchors Away gloss (a combo I normally never would have thought to put together) and ended up with the richest, reddish color that perfectly complimented my outfit. Don't be afraid to play with your colors!
