Which Savvy Mineral Foundation Color Should I Use?

So you wanna get Savvy? Go you.

I am in love with the Savvy Mineral Makeup because it's actually chemical free, vegan and never tested on animals! Even the majority of awesome green companies like Beauty Counter still have some chemicals in their products simply due to the nature of cosmetics.

But since Savvy Minerals is a mineral makeup line-- they have some of the best ingredient profiles I've ever seen! 

Which Savvy Mineral Makeup should I use?


But a lot of people are worried about picking the wrong color, especially if they don't know anyone in person who has all the colors! But trust me, it's easier than you think.

  • The Savvy Mineral Foundation is super forgiving
  • The foundation can be blended with other foundations to give you a custom color
  • The powder is buildable so you can get a supernatural daytime look or a more full-coverage look for date night.

WHAT FOUNDATION COLOR AM I?
The two most popular colors are "Warm 2" and "Cool 2" if that says anything! Next up "Dark 1" for people who have olive complexions. After that-- "Dark 4", the darkest color.

Here are some tricks and tips for finding your perfect foundation color from my diamond leader, April Pointer. 
  • Check Your Veins: Push your sleeves up and look at the veins on the inside of your wrist. Are they blue or green? If they look more blue, you likely have cool undertones. If the veins look greenish, you’re warm.
  • The Jewelry Trick: Think about whether you look better in silver or gold jewelry Typically, girls with cool undertones look better in silver and platinum metals, and warm-toned women look better in gold.
  • The Neutral Test: Think about what neutral shades flatter you best. Does your skin, eyes, and face look better in bright white and black hues, or ivory, off-whites, and brown/tan shades? The former means you’re probably cool-toned, and the latter, warm.
  • Eye and Hair Color: Your natural eye and hair colors can help figure out your coloring. Customarily, cool people have eyes that are blue, gray, or green and have blond, brown, or black hair with blue, silver, violet and ash undertones. Conversely, warm-toned women usually have brown, amber, or hazel eyes with strawberry blond, red, brown, or black hair. Their hair tends to have gold, red, orange, or yellow undertones.
  • The Sun’s Effects: When you’re out in the sun, does your skin turn a golden-brown, or does it burn and turn pink first? If you fit into the former category, you’re warm-toned, while cool tones tend to burn.
Does that help you make your decision? If not, remember that the cool colors are a little pink and the warm colors are a little yellow. If you want to cut the pink, you may want a more yellow-ish foundation or vice versa. 


And remember, you can always mix Savvy Minerals Foundations together to create a custom foundation shade. I really like warm 2 and warm 3 in the summer, but I'm a straight warm 2 in the winter and sometimes I even add a little cool 2.

Remember, if you want a more full coverage look, you will need the misting spray and maybe even a primer if you are looking to cover up acne scars or rosacea. Young Living recommends the Art Intensive or Sheerlume Brightening Cream as primers.

If you're ready to get started with Savvy Minerals, I recommend the Savvy Premium Starter Kit. It's a great way to save money and ditch many of your foundational makeup products that are commonly full of chemicals in one big swoop!
