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.
*Eyes. This one will be your busiest station by far! Provide as many eye shadow colors as you can, eyeliner, a small glass of water for applying the shadows wet or as eyeliner, Organic Mascara, a twelve pack of eye shadow cards to inspire color combinations and application techniques, and a pack of baby wipes for boo boos.
*Lips. Don't forget Exfoliating Lip Polish for smooth lip color application. All Organic Creme Lipstick and Organic Lip Gloss samples as well as Natural Lip Liners should be available to try.
*A final station for great combinations and gift ideas. Include the starter kit and Glamour Eye Set. Put a ribbon around a Natural Lip Liner, Organic Crème Lipstick and Organic Lip Gloss combination, make a younger girls set out of Ballerina Pink Eye Shadow, Sweet Cheeks Blush and Stardust Organic Lip Gloss and put it in a cute purse as a prop, a black zipper makeup bag with an Essentials Brush Set laying on top and the ever-popular and glamorous 8 Piece Brush Set are just a few ideas. Buy an inexpensive, silver tabletop Christmas tree and bling it up! Tie a ribbon around the base of eye shadows and blushes and hang as ornaments. Be creative!
2. Create a posh environment. Its fun to make your guests feel like they are at an exclusive, VIP event. Think red carpet or high-end makeup counter when setting the stage for your party. Bling décor on black and silver look rich and sexy.
3. When your guests arrive, give them a catalog and open to the Sheer Minerals page, give a brief tutorial on each station, highlighting ingredients and uses.
4. Turn them loose! If you have a large party, invite small groups to begin at the makeup removal station while others look through the catalog or have refreshments. Mingle around and make yourself available for questions.
Having a Sheer Minerals makeup party may require a little more set-up than a Spa party, but in the end, it will be worth it!
