One of the best things about the holiday season is that we take time to have fun and see the people we love and enjoy spending time with. Whether it is a gift exchange with friends, a holiday office party, a romantic evening or New Year’s Eve, this is the chance to dress up, strap on our dancing shoes and have some fun with our makeup. To inspire you to try something new, we’ve put together five different looks using the limited edition Glamour Eye & Lip Palette. You’ll have a look for almost any social event on your calendar. One of the best things about this palette, aside from the amazing color selection, is that all of the eye shadows and lip colors are part of our full line, so while the palette may be limited edition, feel free to fall in love with any of the colors, as you can get them in full sized versions any time!
Keep reading, and watching, for three holiday looks including a video tutorial and step-by-step instructions. Then come back and visit next week for two more!

Night Before Christmas by Elizabeth
“I was inspired by a fresh snowfall across the cool purple and blue hues in a winter sky, to create a frosted nighttime look!”
Thanksgiving is almost here!!! Can you tell I’m excited? This is my favorite holiday. The day is filled with nothing but food, family, thanks and food…I said food already, but it deserves two mentions. I host my family’s Thanksgiving because I love to entertain and I love to cook, but I’m not the only one who loves to cook here at jane iredale. In fact, in our marketing department alone we have quite a few very talented ladies who live double lives as chefs at home, and a couple of self proclaimed taste testers as well (who doesn’t want that job)! This year we gathered together a few of our favorite recipes of the holiday to share with each other, and you. We hope these inspire you and maybe one or two of our dishes will make it onto your holiday menu this year.
It never quite feels like the holiday season to me without snow, which is why I’m so glad it has snowed in the Berkshires already! This year, jane iredale introduced the limited edition Glamour Eye & Lip Palette and the Snappy Brush for the 2013 holiday collection, along with the annual limited edition Refillable PurePressed Base Compact. I’m loving this new collection which features 15 PurePressed Eye Shadows, 10 of the NEW PureMoist Lipstick shades and 5 of the NEW PureGloss shades. It’s a gorgeous makeup kit that makes an amazing gift. The Snappy Brush has 3 interchangeable magnetic brushes that all link together, making both it and the Glamour Palette great for travel too!
This week our personal shoppers from shop.janeiredale.com got together to play with makeup together using the Glamour Eye & Lip Palette as well as some of their other favorite makeup products. Keep reading for three of their gorgeous looks and check back next week for the rest!

Fall is bursting at the seams this year with fun new makeup trends. From colorful cat eyes to wine lips, the makeup this season is anything but boring. Here are a few of the fall runway trends that you can recreate in a wearable way (and not a smoky eye in the bunch!).
1. Wine lips
One of the most wearable trends for fall 2013 is wine lips.From Vera Wang to Fendi this trend was one of the most noticeable of all makeup trends at fashion week. If you are someone who loves to accentuate your lips you may choose to stick with the bolder version. You can create a deep matte wine lip by first lining and filling in your lips using the Terra Cotta Lip Definer, then applying NEW Hannah PureMoist Lipstick.
The NEWjane iredale PureMoist Lipsticks are almost here, they will be available for purchase on September 3rd so the wait is almost over! These new lipsticks include 24 beautiful shades; six hero shades will remain and 18 new shades have been added. The new lipsticks also have a new formula rich in antioxidants to protect your lips and moringa oil to soothe them. Each shade has buildable pigment so you can choose whether to wear them as a sheer wash of color or add a coat or two for a deeper lip.
PureMoist Lipstick NEW formula, NEW packaging and NEW shades.
To expand your lip wardrobe even further, consider adding a Lip Definer under your favorite lipstick or lip gloss. Keep reading for a few fun suggestions on how to do just that!
First, let’s talk about nomenclature. Why do cosmetic companies when talking about their products’ attributes refer to problem skin when they mean acne? Because the FDA considers acne a medical condition and doesn’t take kindly to product claims about curing, preventing, treating or affecting the structure of any function of the human body unless the product has been approved as a drug. If we were a drug company, we could hit the word acne head on; since we’re not we skirt the issue by using words like problem skin, break-outs, zits, etc. There is sense behind the FDA’s stricture.
Without going through the proper approval processes, a manufacturer could claim anything and trick the consumer into buying products that either don’t work or are potentially dangerous. The FDA is there to protect our interests. However, it does get frustrating when as a manufacturer you know you have something that can help people and you can’t come right out and say it. That’s the way I feel about our new food supplement,Skin Accumax. But I understand and will abide by the rules. Just let me say that we’ve seen amazing results with this nutritional supplement on problem skin.
As a middle-school aged gal I began my first struggles with acne. It was embarrassing so my mom started letting me wear foundation and blush to cover up the little red bumps and blemishes all over my face. Unfortunately, we were a little less educated about the dangers of putting harsh cosmetics on our face when I was in 6th grade, so little did my mom or I know that the more I covered the worse it actually got.
