Summer tips from jane iredale educators!

One of the things I love about makeup is that there are no rules! When you throw out the rules sometimes you may just discover something fantastic about the products you already love. Here are a few no-rules summer tips from our jane iredale educators who use some of their favorite products in multiple ways.

 

POMMISSTSpray POMMIST in your hair after you shampoo it. It helps maintain the color, because pomegranate is a powerful antioxidant.  Many of us use chemicals in our hair every day, styling products and a lot of heat i.e. blow dryers, flat irons, etc.   POMMIST helps protect the hair from all those damaging products and heat.

Adventure makeup look

Sticking with the theme of travel this month, I can’t help but think of how much fun an exotic safari adventure would be. In 2011, Jane had the pleasure of visiting a number of our International Distributors overseas and was able to fit in a safari adventure of her own during that time. Keep reading for some of Jane’s amazing African safari pictures and a fun makeup look!

Traveling with your makeup, plus a sneak peek of the NEW Refill-Me Refillable Brush!

Whether you’re taking a day trip to the beach, a long weekend to a close by city or venturing to another part of the world, you’re going to need to pack your makeup. Personally, I despise checking a bag unless I have to. I prefer to have my things (especially my makeup) with me and not have to wait at a baggage claim. This poses a couple of challenges, keeping any liquids within the TSA size requirements and minimize the space my makeup takes up in my bag. Thankfully, jane iredale has me, and you, covered! Keep reading for some of my favorite products to pack on the go, plus a sneak peek at our NEW Refill-Me Refillable Brush, available July 7th.

No-melt makeup for summer

Summer’s here and for many of us that means heat and often humidity. During the summer months I tend to take my makeup down a notch, I want a look that’s fresh, fun and not too dramatic. I also need something that can withstand the summer heat and humidity without melting or becoming shiny. Here’s a great summer look that I love; just replace the shades with what works best for you for a no-melt makeup look that will last throughout the day and into the evening.

A summer makeup look from Jane Iredale

Summer in the Berkshires is one of my favorite seasons. I love being outside and enjoying all the beauty this region has to offer, whether it be gardening in our company garden, tending to my flowers or taking my beloved dog Cookie for a walk. During this season, I like a simple makeup look, complete with SPF, to protect my skin and enhance my beauty no matter what activity these beautiful days bring. Here’s one of my favorite summer looks:

Not just a pretty face: get gorgeous hands, legs and feet for summer!

The weather is finally warming up and it’s time to let those legs and feet out for their day in the sun!

sexy legs for summer with Tantasia and Golden Shimmer

The obvious place to start is with a lovely manicure and pedicure. Whether you go to your favorite salon or DIY at home, colors this summer are fun and unexpected: deep nautical blue, bright orange, teal and bronze are just a few of my favorites. Our friends at Harper’s Bazaar have a full roundup of the summer polish trends.

But that’s just a start. Nail polish looks best set off against great skin. For hands, frequent moisturizing is a must, and SPF is critical for keeping your skin smooth and radiant. All of our foundations (except Liquid Minerals) have SPF and are endorsed by the Skin Cancer Foundation. Try smoothing or dusting some on the backs of your hands once you finish applying to your face. Next, be sure to keep some Powder-Me SPF in your purse or car to apply to hands and arms when out or driving. It is amazing how much sun gets through the window. I discovered this once when I noticed a deeply tanned left arm. Yikes! If you like the way tan hands look with your summery nail polish, moisturize like crazy and apply Tantasia to the backs of hands (see below, because it is a must for legs too!).
