This blog post has become one of my favorites to write every season. There are some makeup trends that change slowly over time (thin eyebrows to thick), some we see every year (smoky eyes? Bold lips?), and then there are a few variations on the trends that are unique to each season. These are usually a bit wild and creative, but so inspiring! So how do we take these inspirational looks and turn them into something flattering that we can wear in our every day lives?
Keep reading for three trends that hit the runways for fall 2014, and of course our take on how to incorporate the look (albeit a toned down version) into your daily makeup routine.
Not your average smoky eye
Christian Dior showcased a few very bold smoky eye looks on the runway this season and we love this khaki, metallic look.
This is a quick tip I learned from one of our global educators that will wake up your skin and make you look like you spent a week at the spa.
Scrape off a bit of In Touch Highlighter (experiment with either shade to get the look you want, but I have tried Complete). Add Dream Tint and spritz the mixture with one pump of Hydration Spray. Mix them together and apply with your fingers. Try it and let us know what you think!
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.
Spray 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.
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!
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.
Holidays are fun and give us a great excuse to play with our makeup; but how do we get into the 4th of July spirit without looking campy? Follow the tips below, I bet you’d be surprised how versatile and wearable red, white and blue can be.
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.
