Some people don’t give mineral makeup the credit it deserves and judge it based on it less than an elaborate container over fancier packaging. However, you would be mistaken to dismiss what nontoxic mineral makeup can do for your beauty. Monave Mineral Makeup is one such brand that can do beautiful things for your face without risking your health to hazardous chemicals like the beautiful assortment sent to me for this review/giveaway.
Monave Mineral Makeup Can Help You Shine This Holiday Season
The first product I selected was the Loose Mineral Foundation in the shade of Claire. The shade is a light beige with just a bit of pink, which is a nice color for my light complexion with its yellow undertones to balance it out. This product gave me fine medium coverage through healthier ingredients.

Since I was going for a peachy-bronze look with browns, golds and red tones overall, the Mineral Pearlescent Blush in Desert Rose #202 had the burnished red tones I wanted without being overly brown. This was the first step in my festive holiday look.
For my eyes, I could do either a sunset eye with Versatile Mineral Powers #36 Cali Clay on the lids, #85 Sienna in the crease and along the lid with #31 Gold Brick at the inner corners using Tourmaline as the liner. I wet the Angled Liner Brush before reaching for the tourmaline for more emphasis.
To vary that look, I picked out Versatile Powder Neutral Lips #54. This is a gleaming medium brown with plum that is great for alternating as a crease color. This toned down the red with that brown-plum color mixing against the orange of Cali-Clay for a more earthy look.
Another way I altered my look was creating a berry-stained eye that is popular this season. What I did was mixing a bit of Neutral Lips #54 in the lid with Sienna #85 that brought some warm red tones to the shade, then used #54 in the crease and along the lid followed with the Tourmaline for the liner. My version was a softer red-plum eye with a hint of smoky, brown-plum definition from blending in the crease with #54.
Above I swatched the products for you. Starting at my wrist and working down my arm is Claire and Kerrie Concealer Crayons followed by Versatile Mineral Powders: Tourmaline, Gold Brick #31, Cali Clay #36, Neutral Lip #54, Sienna #85, Desert Rose Pearlescent Blush #202 and ending with Claire Loose Mineral Foundation.
The Tourmaline color appears a deep blue green in the pot. In reality, the shade is a smoky dark gray bordering on black with a hint of green in its gleaming midst.
Cali Clay #36 is a dark orange.
Sienna #85 has more red with a smidgen of brown.
Gold Brick #31 was a richer, darker gold than the Versatile Powder India #30.
For my eyes, I sampled the Concealer Crayons in Kerrie and Claire. These are creamy and delivered nice coverage for under eye darkness. The Kerrie color was a bit lighter than Claire, which in the crayon was slightly too dark. I could either save the Claire shade for mixing with the Kerrie and dabbing on or using I got a pimple.
To pull this color scheme together, I wanted a paler, neutral lip to balance more intense eyes over red or dark-brown lips. I went with these four Monave lipsticks with Rosewood #96, Nude #158, Hibiscus #84, and Autumn #83. All these colors are gorgeous and so fitting for achieving this goal. Rosewood and the Nude shades were the deepest with a bit more brown while the Hibiscus and Autumn were slightly lighter with more pink to the brown.
