We love the holidays; parties, glitzy nights out and glamour! There’s so many different ways to play with your makeup this time of year. The NEW Where there’s smoke… collection is filled with decadent holiday makeup inspired by all the excitement of the holiday season. The new collection includes the Limited Edition Smoke & Mirrors Smoky Eye Kit, NEW sparkly, Limited Edition Eye Shere shades in Opal Silk and Gold Silk, and this season’s Limited Edition Electric Refillable Compact, a deep amethyst decorated with a fuchsia crystal.
One of the most common makeup questions we get is about Hydration Sprays. Everyone who has tried a Hydration Spray loves them, but what do they actually do? Get ready for a fun lesson in Hydration Sprays, both their official purpose and some of the other creative uses for them!
What is a Hydration Spray? Each and every one of the jane iredale Hydration Sprays are a facial spritz formulated to hydrate your skin and set your mineral powder. In addition, each Hydration Spray has it’s own special added benefits. If you are looking to hydrate your skin, you should spritz your Hydration Spray on and let dry before applying your foundation. If you are using your Hydration Spray to set your mineral powder you should spritz after your foundation has been applied, or you can use it both ways!
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.
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.

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.
