Mixing it up for Spring and Summer

There has been a lot of interest in mixing Sheer Minerals, and why not?!  Whether you’re interested in creating a sweet pastel for Spring, or a bright and bold shade for Summer, it's always good to start out with the right tools to mix your colors. 

Palette

My preference for the perfect palette is the Minerals Mate mixing tray. It has several small bowls to play with different options.  The  shallow divots make it easier to mix your colors thoroughly without spilling, and if you make one you really love, you can simply place one of the covers over it and save it. If you don’t have a Mineral Mates, you can use a small jar. An empty Sheer Minerals jar would be a great way to recycle. Be sure and make note of the amounts of each color you have combined so it is easier to re-create your masterpiece.

Scooping and Mixing

If you have access to a small cosmetic spatula, they make great scoops and blenders for your colors. Scoop and tap a little color into your pallet or jar and stir and “chop” them together OR If you are using a recycled jar, you can simply put the cap on and shake to mix your colors.

We are nearing the end of 2015 and while Pantone has announced their colors of the year for 2016, I don’t think we are going to say goodbye to Marsala anytime soon. Our Marsala Blush and Merlot Organic Crème Lipstick belong in our Sheer Minerals Hall of Fame! Classics transcend trends.

However, now that Pantone has announced their new colors, you can expect the fashion and design worlds will follow suit in makeup, clothing, accessories and home décor. The 2016 Pantone colors of the year are (drumroll please….) Rose Quartz and Serenity.  Pantone threw us all for a loop when they announced the 2016 colors of the year; it’s the first time ever two complementing hues have been chosen. Rose Quartz is a cool soft pink reminiscent of the palest part of a rose petal. Serenity is a light fluffy powder blue, like a baby blanket. Together they look like sugary, airy cotton candy.

The following trends for 2016 are perfectly in tune with these new colors:

Sheer Minerals Makeup Party

Beauty products and makeup are such a fun and personal gift to give for the holidays, why not have a glitzy, glamorous Sheer Minerals Makeover party? Much of the feedback and many posts I read indicate a level of intimidation when it comes to holding a Sheer Minerals Party. You do not need to be a makeup artist or even wear makeup to hold a successful party. If you give women the opportunity to get their hands on the makeup and experiment with it, the party virtually holds itself. Busy women often get caught in a beauty rut. We do the same look, buy the same products and stick with the same routine for years and years out of pure habit and staying in a comfort zone. Not only are you providing your guests with the time and opportunity to try new looks, products and colors on themselves, you are giving them great gift ideas for their friends and family. Below are some tips to help you conduct a successful Sheer Minerals Holiday party, regardless of your level of experience with makeup.

1.  Set up stations to avoid crowding and confusion. These should include:

*Makeup removal and facial preparation including warm washcloths, eye makeup remover, moisturizer and primer. *tip: provide a Muddy Mates Mixing & Application Tray, hand mirror (or have larger mirrors at each station) and sample brushes for each guest to keep everything sanitary and allow for mixing. Include a wish list and a pen to keep track of favorites. Encourage before and after selfies that they can share with you if they are comfortable.

*Cover up. Include all 3 concealing sticks, mineral cover-up, and sheer veils.

*Foundations and blush. Include BB crème samples or pumps and mineral foundation, blushes and setting spray.
