Savvy Minerals Hacks & Tips

Today we have more tips from Jaynelle! This time on Young Living’s new all-natural makeup line Savvy Minerals. Enjoy:)

I am loving the new Savvy Minerals Makeup by Young Living! Each product is designed to let your true beauty shine without an artificial appearance. It is the perfect missing puzzle piece for a non-toxic, healthy lifestyle.

So, of course, no oily hacks series would be complete without tips for this fantastic line. So, I present my (drumroll) …

Top 10 Savvy Minerals Hacks


1. Create a Cream Foundation

Grab your favorite moisturizer and add minerals to it for an easy to apply cream foundation or concealer. You can even make a cream blush if you want!

2. Stretch Your Mascara

Mascara drying out? Spray your wand with the Misting Spray and get weeks more use out of it.

3. Easy Facial Cleansing

Feeling tired at the end of the day? Grab a YL Seedlings baby wipe to remove your makeup and cleanse your face.

4. Easy Brush Cleansing

Seedlings baby wipes are awesome at cleaning makeup brushes.

5. Unexpected Eye Primer

Apply a thin layer of Lavender Lip Balm on your eyelid as primer before applying eyeshadow for all-day staying power.

6. Stretch Your Eyeshadow

When applying your eyeliner, only clean your brush every other day and get multiple uses from it. Just spritz with misting spray on the second day and apply with the leftover minerals. Great for those mornings you are on the move!

7. Get Creative

Don’t worry about what the label says on your makeup – foundation can be bronzer, blush can be eyeshadow and eyeliner can be brow filler! Mix it up and play with the colors, they are all natural minerals and can be used for anything. Even try tinting your lips with some blush and lip balm OR my mom’s favorite, tint your cheeks with lipstick for a “dewy” glow – you can thank me later!

8. Make a Holiday Statement

Want a festive holiday look? Use some of the fun Savvy colors and shimmer as eyeliner for a dramatic look that everyone will notice.

9. Don’t Blow It

When using any mineral makeup, you never want to blow on the brush after you apply minerals to the brush, it can create a breeding ground for bacteria over time.

10. Makeup Ordering 101

I don’t like to run out of makeup and so I ALWAYS make sure I have a backup of whatever my staple products are. As soon as I finish a product, I grab my backup and then order a new backup. This also helps when things might go out of stock.  

And, while we’re on purchasing, also make sure you are getting YLs wholesale pricing! What woman wouldn’t want to get their makeup at a 24% discount every time they purchase?!

Pro Tip: Add a drop of lemon or orange oil for an extra punch!

Stay fresh & clean, use as a deodorant.

15. Thieves Hand Purifier

Use to remove permanent marker and pen off of surfaces. Use to wipe down tech devices and sunglasses.

16. Thieves Household Cleaner

Achieve a deeper clean by using in carpet-cleaning vacuums - I have even seen it remove pink nail polish from carpet! Also use as stain remover for clothes or a boost in your automatic dishwasher.

Soak oral night guard or retainer for cleansing.

19. Thieves Dish Soap

20 Thieves Spray

Use under your arms on hot days and inside your shoes. Keep in your bag as an "on the go" spot remover.
