Savvy Minerals from Young Living

OMG So this is really big! I am so excited about this!  One of the biggest arguments I have with my teen daughter is over toxic beauty products. Honestly, that is one reason I started my Sustainable Hair care and Hygiene Facebook group.

Personally, I don’t wear makeup, but that is more because I don’t care for it. My daughter, on the other hand, thinks about going to beauty school. I want to support her but I hate buying all of that toxic stuff for her. We tend to fight and more than I care to admit, I give in and but whatever nail or makeup she is asking for. I try to find the healthiest version of what she is asking for, but that is hard to do.

So when this was announced, I work that girl child up! I showed her the images as I saw them! She wishes there were more colors (rumors say they will be expanding), but she is so excited and I will start building her collection in July!

Let’s start with the ingredients!

Let’s Talk Products!

The Misting Spray can be used as a setting spray and to apply the powders as more of a cream or liquid. Always apply Misting Spray to your brush first!

Watch this short video for tips on using the Misting Spray and creating a flawless look with foundation powder:

Which shade are you? Here’s how to tell:
If you have red, orange, yellow, golden tones in your hair/skin, and you look better in gold jewelry, you probably need a Warm shade.

If you have light hair and eyes, look better in silver tone jewelry, and your skin has pink undertones, you probably need a Cool shade.

Also, take a look at the veins on your wrists: if they appear bluer, you need a Cool shade, and if they appear more green, you need a Warm shade.

Starting July 1st you can add makeup to your Essential Rewards or to your Wellness Box!
