I LOVE, like LOVE LOVE LOVE, Savvy Minerals Makeup. When it came out last summer I was quick to ditch my old makeup (one of the last things I was waiting to change over to a healthier option) and purchase my favorite colors of Savvy to use every time I wear makeup. I love that it’s free from all of the junk and that it actually helps diminish the appearance of imperfections and blemishes. I have a few tips & hacks for you today regarding mineral makeup.
Color Matching – It can be hard to buy makeup online because you can’t color match your foundation when looking at a computer screen. Here we are given some helpful hints for matching up our foundation colors. The beautiful thing about mineral makeup is that it’s very forgiving and you can mix shades together to get the perfect one for you!
Liquid Foundation – If you prefer a liquid foundation, there are a few different things you can do to make our minerals have more coverage like liquid. One option is to mix some of the minerals with your favorite moisturizer (mine is Boswellia Wrinkle Cream) and then apply it to your face. Another option would be to mist your face and brush with the Misting Spray before applying the minerals. This gives it more staying power and a wet application gives the feeling of more of a liquid foundation.
Making your eyeshadow more dramatic – There are a couple of ways to do this as well. My favorite way is to use our lip balm on my eye lids – yes, you heard me right! I apply a bit of my foundation on the entire eyelid and then some lip balm on the bottom part of the eyelid and top it with my eyeshadow. The lip balm helps the shadow to stay put while also having a more dramatic color. You can keep adding minerals until the color is to your liking. Another option is foiling which means that you wet down the brush before you put it in the minerals. This achieves a dramatic color from your eyeshadow.
Staying power – Finishing off your look with a quick spray or two of the Misting Spray will help give your look the staying power you need.
