Holiday parties are a time to connect with friends, family and coworkers. It’s also a time when we want to look our best in those special new holiday outfits. Put your best face forward and go from darling to daring with two luxe looks that will take you from festive brunch to cocktail party with ease.

Choose your favourite Savvy Minerals shades and follow the simple steps below to create looks that are party perfect, no matter where the festivities may take you.

Naturally Darling

Take the wow factor up a notch with shimmering shades designed to enhance your natural radiance.

Step 1: Build on a beautiful foundation

Luminous, flawless looking skin always gets you noticed. Savvy Minerals Foundation is buildable for sheer or full coverage in a shade that complements your skin tone.

To apply, sprinkle a small amount of foundation powder into the lid. Swirl brush in foundation and tap to remove excess minerals. Apply to face in circular motions.

Tip: For more control and coverage, spray your brush 2–3 times with Savvy Minerals Misting Spray before picking up the minerals.

Step 2: Eyes that sparkle

Sweep a sub

tle shade of eyeshadow on your lids. Try Best Kept Secret or Crushin’. Add an extra hint of shimmer by blending a secondary shade like Residual or Spoiled to the crease of your eyelid, extending to the outer corner of the eye.

Finish the look with a coat of mascara on the upper and lower lashes.

Step 3: Kissable lips

Keep your lips kissable with a moisturizing Savvy Minerals lipstick like Daydream or On A Whim.

Want an added touch of luminosity? A thin layer of Savvy Lip Gloss like Embrace adds shimmer and gleam; mixing shades is a great way to create a custom look that’s festive, fun and uniquely your own.

Step 4: Blushing beauty
Enhance your skin’s natural glow with a sweep of colour. Apply a pretty shade of Savvy Minerals Blush, like I Do Believe You’re Blushing, to the apples of your cheeks and blend outward, along the cheekbone toward the temples.

You can also apply bronzer to all areas where the sun would naturally hit: cheeks, chin, bridge of nose and forehead. Be sure to blend for a luminous, natural glow.


Naturally Daring

When you want to take your makeup to the next level, try a few daring enhancements that add drama and elegance.

Step 1: Prime the canvas
With a natural looking foundation, all the other party guests will see is your glowing, flawless complexion.

Apply Savvy Minerals Foundation in a shade that complements your skin tone. Apply as desired, for sheer to full coverage.

Step 2: Bette Davis Eyes

Choose an attention-grabbing eyeshadow. Try the beautiful plum shade of Diffused or warm, purple hue of Unscripted. Sweep your eyeshadow over the lids and into the creases, layering the colour until the desired drama is achieved.

To define the eye and accentuate your look, apply the Savvy Minerals MultiTasker along your lower lash line. Top the look off by brushing two coats of mascara on the upper and lower lashes.

Tip: Use the tip of your mascara wand to build lashes at the outer corner for additional impact.

Step 3: Paint the perfect pout

Push boundaries, experimenting with rich lipstick shades like Uptown Girl that compliment your natural skin tone. Enhance the sheen by applying a coat of Savvy Minerals Lip Gloss.

Step 4: Get glowing
Sweep a pretty shade of Savvy Minerals Blush on the apples of your cheeks and blend outward, along the cheekbone toward the temples.

Catch the light using the Savvy Minerals Veil (Diamond Dust) powder to highlight key areas of your face, such as along your cheekbones, brow bones, and down the bridge of your nose.

Step 5: Set your look

Give your makeup a flawless finish with Savvy Minerals Veil setting powder applied in small circular motions to your entire face, using the Savvy Minerals Veil Brush. It ensures your foundation and other makeup wears longer so that you look luminous throughout the day or night.

You’re all set to shine. Let the festivities begin!
