jane iredale This Australia Day we celebrate some of our favourite Aussie Beauties

This Australia Day, we want to acknowledge and celebrate some of our favourite Aussie beauties. Whilst traditionally, Australia Day is synonymous with BBQs and entertaining, we wanted to take a second to showcase some of our favourite beauty ex-pats…

#1 Isabel Lucas

Former ‘Summer Bay’ star Isabel Lucas captured our attention long before she landed her role as a seductive robot in ‘Transformers’. Blessed with elevated cheekbones, Isabel constantly inspires us with her versatility. She can pull off any look from red carpet glam to beach babe. We recommend jane iredale In Touch Cream Blush for a radiant glow.

#2 Margot Robbie

We must admit that since Margot Robbie got her big break on ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ she’s been on our beauty radar. She nails the blonde bombshell look – voluminous waves and alluring eye makeup. Try jane iredale Jelly Jar Gel Liner in Black to imitate this seductress’ look.

#3 Rose Byrne

Rose Byrne is known for her on-screen talent, but there’s no question that she is also recognised for her beauty off-screen. Thanks to her delicate features, Rose Byrne is the epitome of relaxed glamour. She keeps her daily makeup routine simple –“just a bit of base and some lip stain cause my lips are quite pale”. We recommend jane iredale Just Kissed Lip Plumper in shade L.A.

#4 Elle Macpherson

Supermodel Elle Macpherson has graced the cover of countless glossies thanks to her natural beauty and gobsmackingly long pins. Born in Killara, New South Wales, Elle Macpherson is the ‘Aussie beach babe’ poster girl. She believes “every woman should wear different types of foundation according to her day”. Need a tip for night look? Elle recommends, classic “dark eyes”. For Elle’s flawless beach babe glow we suggest jane iredale GlowTime BB Cream.

Five minutes with Jane

We spend some time with inspirational founder Jane Iredale.Blog image - Janes faves

For those that may not be aware, the jane iredale mineral makeup range began when founder Jane Iredale started the company in 1994 in the US. It was the first brand to supply the cosmetics industry with a line of makeup that also had incredible skin care benefits… which 20 years on is still being celebrated and stocked in over 43 countries worldwide.

Jane was inspired to develop a high-quality makeup range that was good for the skin and encouraged women to embrace their natural beauty. After a career in the entertainment industry where she saw actresses and models struggling with the different types of makeup they were wearing day in and day out, alongside women whose careers depended on a clear complexion, allowed Jane to appreciate how skin disorders and sensitivities can have a huge impact on self-confidence. Jane made it her goal to make products that looked fantastic, felt amazing and offered benefits that were good for the skin.

The jane iredale range is multifunctional – containing vitamins, minerals, natural preservatives and is free from the toxic chemicals found in most makeup products. You can layer them up, or keep it simple, basically the beauty of the range is that there aren’t really any rules and this was one of the key things Jane wanted to achieve with her range. For example, jane iredale mineral powders are a foundation, powder, concealer and sunscreen in one, plus have the healing properties that are beneficial for the skin. They are all dermatologically tested, sensitivity tested, non-comodegenic and the brand is certified Cruelty-free by the CCCI Leaping Bunny Program.

Here we share five minutes with the ever-inspiring Jane, so you can find out her latest makeup faves, her staple items and some of her key moments for the brand.

We have to let the readers know, what do you have in your makeup bag?

“I always use our PurePressed Base which is a foundation, powder, concealer and sunscreen all in one. Just brush a little on for the perfect complexion. And it lets the skin breathe and function normally, too.

Although I change up on blush and eye shadows, I never deviate from our Lash Conditioner and Longest Lash Mascara in Espresso. I’ll often put Tantasia on my legs as a moisturiser [sic] and for some colour. I find I wear it all year round.”

What does your daily skin care regime consist of? 

“I use our Magic Mitt and then everything else I buy from my health food store. So I don’t buy by brand. I buy according to the ingredient label and then I test for performance. Once I find something I like, I’m faithful to it for years. I always take my makeup off at night. It doesn’t matter how pure the makeup is, it collects pollutants and toxins all day long and you definitely don’t want to go to bed with those on your face.

What are some of the key skin care products that you would recommend for us to nourish our skin in summer?

“After months of cold weather and dehydrating heaters, the first order of business is to put moisture back into the skin. Start with a good moisturiser applied while the skin is still damp from cleansing.  Next use a generous drop of a moisturising [sic] primer like our Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener.

This will help make up adhere, smooth skin’s texture and provide a hydrated finish to the skin. Wake up your skin with a BB cream that will provide beautiful, even colour without looking heavy. Try to find products that also help you to hold in your skin’s moisture. The more you can hang on to the better your skin will be. Our Tinted Moisturiser [sic] has algae extracts that do just that.”

Since you founded the company in 1994, what are the key highlights/milestones of the brand?

“This year marks our 20th anniversary. When we incorporated, we started with five shades of loose minerals. Over the past 20 years, we have expanded the line to include more than 400 products, and we’re now available in 43 countries around the world. As The Skin Care Makeup, we introduced something unprecedented—makeup that also nurtures skin—and I believe we changed the landscape of the industry. It is our mission to deliver personal, uplifting beauty that is as good for the skin as it is beautiful to wear, and we are committed to continued innovation in the spa category. I know the next 20 years will be even more incredible than the last.”

quote - Jane

We loved Jane’s tips! What a lady, a true pioneer and leader, it looks like we’ll have to keep a close eye on what’s next for the brand, sounds exciting! We wish the entire team at jane iredale every success for 2015, the start of all things new.

If you had a few minutes with this inspiring lady, what would you want to find out?

The beauty of summer by jane iredale

We’re thrilled that summer is finally here! To celebrate we’ve put together a list of jane iredale essentials to help you make the most out of the long hot days at the beach and romantic balmy nights spent out with friends.

During summer, it’s especially important to keep yourself and your skin hydrated. When the sun’s beating down and your time is spent frolicking by the pool or at the beach, you’re much more likely to feel the impacts of the summer sun. It’s a great time to re-consider how you look after your skin… like wearing effective SPF products and keeping your skin moisturised and in top shape.

We’re celebrating the beauty of summer by keeping things simple and embracing natural beauty. Here we talk about the jane iredale products that should be on the top of your summer make up wish list. With Christmas just around the corner, what better time to stock up or pop them on your wish list!

The Beauty of Summer4

SMOOTH AFFAIR® FACIAL PRIMER & BRIGHTENER

We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again… to prime is divine! Smooth Affair has anti-aging properties that even skin tone, minimise the appearance of pores and increase luminosity. Prepping your skin is the key to flawless looking foundation.

Coming into summer, Jane is adamant this is one of the must-have products for added skin hydration.

DREAM TINT® TINTED MOISTURIZER

Tinted moisturiser is the perfect alternative to foundation in the warmer months. It’s lovely and light and allows your skin to breathe, but still provides a gorgeous cover that enhances your complexion. With SPF 15 it’s great for summer and also features antioxidant protection that evens skin tone. The light and silky feel makes it almost like you’re not wearing makeup. A must for that barely there make up look, it’s amazing!

JUST KISSED® LIP AND CHEEK STAIN

This all-natural lip and cheek stain adjusts to your skin tone (like magic!) and provides a gorgeous shade of pink that nourishes, soothes and moisturisers all-in-one. It is also long lasting and provides a custom colour that will enhance your lips and suit your entire summer wardrobe. We think this is a beach must!

GOLDEN SHIMMER FACE AND BODY LOTION

Let’s face it, in summer we want to glow like a goddesses and GOLDEN SHIMMER is perfect for that gorgeous luminous look. Its subtle shimmer provides a warm, smooth complexion and the natural formula rejuvenates and hydrates. Wear it alone or paired with your favourite make up or use it in conjunction with a self-tanner like TANTASIA® SELF TANNER & BRONZER, to safely build a shimmering, bronzed goddess look.

The Beauty of Summer3

Now that you have the summer make up essentials sorted just remember to keep hydrated and cool with a few spritzes of our POMMISST Hydration Spray.

A simple summer make up look wrapped up in six easy to use and multi-tasking products. You can always count on us!

jane iredale’s Brush Tutorial

An essential part of well-applied makeup is the proper tools. Here’s our quick makeup brush guide to help you choose which brush to use.

With so many brushes (30 to be exact!) in the jane iredale collection we thought we’d give you a rundown of our top selling tools and how you can best use them.

From brow brushes to stippling brushes and everything in between, here we explain the purpose of each brush, plus some hints and tips on using them correctly. We don’t all need a kit full of 20 makeup brushes for every day makeup, so we will show you which ones are a must for your makeup bag!

THE JANE IREDALE BRUSH LINE UP

Brush Guide

Getting your foundation application right.

The Handi™ Brush – Pressed Powder

The Handi ™ Brush is a flat headed, bristled powder brush made from goat hair and was created for use with our PurePressed Mineral Foundation. The flat head picks up the powder evenly and the softness of the hairs ensures minimum scratching and product wastage. Simply swirl your brush around your pressed powder pan and apply your product in downwards stokes for best results.

Chisel Powder Brush – Loose Powder & Blush

A multi-tasking brush designed for Amazing Base but can also be used for blush, Amazing Matte, PureMatte Finish Powder, Bronzer and general blending. It’s hand-tied with goat hair, which helps you achieve a truly professional finish.

Foundation Brush - Cream based foundations

The Foundation Brush is a chiselled, synthetic brush designed especially for the application of jane iredale Liquid Minerals. Made of taklon nylon, this brush provides an even, well-blended coverage, which means you don’t get foundation all over your fingers! Win-win.

Tip: Use dry for a heavier coverage of Liquid Minerals or wet your brush slightly with one of our facial hydration sprays to apply a lighter layer of coverage.

Blending Brush – Cream based Foundations

Suitable for use with several jane iredale products, this brush screams versatility! Made with a unique combination of natural goat hair and taklon fibre, the Blending Brush can be used for both cream and powder based products. Blend some In Touch Cream Blush into your cheeks or sweep So Bronze over your face with this beauty, for a glorious blended glow.

Want the perfect bronzer brush for a natural looking sun-kissed finish? Look no further…

White Fan Brush – Bronzer

The White Fan Brush is a flat boar bristle brush in the shape of a fan with a long handle. It’s the perfect tool for blush and bronzer application.  Watch this clip to see how it’s done.

Made specifically in a lighter colour, the brush allows you to see how much product you’ve picked up so you don’t need to worry about over-applying.

Tip: Never overdo bronzer again – This brush allows you to control the amount of product you apply and give an even and natural finish for a flawless glow.

Now let’s talk about beautiful liner, this brush is an essential…

Angle Liner / Brow Brush – Eyeliner

One of our faves and the perfect tool for applying liner. Lets you line your eyes with ease and allows for precise application so you can get the cat-eye and winged liner looks just right.

Tip: Use this brush to fill out and thicken your brows too.

If you struggle with getting your concealer right, this brush will make all the difference…

Camouflage Brush – Concealer

The Camouflage Brush is the perfect tool to use with cream based products. Made from taklon bristles, this brush can be used wet or dry and allows for a smooth application in hard-to-reach areas. Especially good for camouflaging those dark under eye circles with concealer! Watch this clip to see how great this tool really is.

Brush Organiser

jane iredale brushes are absolutely cruelty-free, using only natural hair obtained from living animals and all certified cruelty-free by PETA. Our synthetic brushes are made from Taklon, which is durable and easy to clean.

Party prep for gorgeous bronzed skin

The time for end of year celebrations is drawing near and jane iredale has you covered this party season with a step-by-step guide to make sure you’re looking your best. Ideally, party prep should commence a couple of days prior to your event to ensure your skin is glowing.

Party Prep Model image

LEADING UP TO YOUR EVENT

A few days before your special event we recommend starting your beauty regime, especially if you’re after that summer glow! Start by buffing off any dry skin. Exfoliate both your body and face and lather on the body oil’s and face serums.

3 DAYS PRIOR

Now that your skin is beautifully hydrated and prepped, get bronzed up with TANTASIA® Self Tanner & Bronzer. Three days before your special event we recommend starting your instant tanning regime.

Tantasia goes on easily, is not greasy and smells heavenly. For a healthy-looking colour that is streak-free and optimal application control, this bronzer has it all, even natural hydration that makes your skin feel like silk. Even better, the sensitivity-tested formula makes it suitable for the face and the body. No nasties in this tube.

Simply apply Tantasia to clean and dry skin in either the morning or evening after you’ve showered.

Application for Face: Squeeze a ten cent coin sized amount onto your finger. Touch the forehead, nose, cheeks, and chin to distribute product. Using sweeping motions, start at the centre of the face and blend outwards until you’re happy with the coverage. Remember to wash your hands thoroughly after use with hand soap. You will be surprised at how easy this tan comes off hands, no more orange palms. Build your desired tan and continue to repeat the process daily until you are feeling like a golden goddess.

Application for Body: Squeeze an amount the size of a 20 cent coin in the palm of hand. Rub hands together two to three times to distribute the product across your palms. Smooth on one section at a time until product is absorbed using long, even strokes. Repeat the steps above until the desired coverage is reached. Wash hands with hand soap. Again, build up the colour by applying daily until a your ideal tan colour has been achieved.

To minimise the chance of transfer to clothing, allow 15-20 minutes before getting dressed or hitting the sheets.

ON THE NIGHT

Your skin should be looking and feeling incredible if you’ve managed to squeeze in our instant tanning regime – now it’s time to show it off!

For the perfect face to compliment your healthy, tanned skin we recommend this fresh faced ‘just got back from Bora Bora’ makeup look.

STEP 1 PRIMER
SMOOTH AFFAIR® Facial Primer & Brightener for flawless, radiant skin. It also has anti-aging properties that help to even skin tone, minimises the appearance of pores and increases luminosity. We also need to mention the bonus staying power this product will give your foundation in the heat.

STEP 2 FOUNDATION
For complete coverage with a dewy finish and brightening effect, try GLOW TIME® Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream. Glow Time covers blemishes easily, will help to minimizes the appearance of large/open pores, while disguising those dreaded fine lines AKA wrinkles. Just remember, a little goes an incredibly long way. It’s amazing!

STEP 3 BRONZER
Add a hint of SO-BRONZE®  Bronzing Powder to give your complexion a final touch of colour. Brush it on where the sun hits your skin, your cheeks, nose, chin and along your hairline.

STEP 4 EYELINER
JELLY JAR™ Gel Eyeliner is a longwearing party-liner that has a gorgeous inky look and creamy feel. It’s versatile, easy to apply and can be used to create smudgy or precise lines: cat eye or rocker-chic alike. The best part, it won’t smudge!

STEP 5 HIGHLIGHTER
For a lovely glow and dewy finish sweep IN TOUCH® Cream Blush stick over your cheek bones for a flush that’s soft and natural.

STEP 6 LIPS
Pink/White HIGHLIGHTER PENCIL will add naturally flushed looking lips to complete your makeup look. Finish with a lick of Bellini Lip Gloss.

STEP 7 SHIMMER
And last but not least, don’t forget those golden pins and décolletage by adding some GOLDEN SHIMMER Face and Body Lotion for that gorgeous luminous glow.


Now, all that’s left is to have a great night! Party and repeat.
