jane iredale how-to: Non-touring!

Introducing the latest beauty trend of 2016… Non-touring.

In 2015 Kimmy K showed us how to accentuate our features with contouring – the face sculpting phenomenon. Next we saw strobing, used to help radiate and enhance your facial features with highlighters and concealers.

Keeping your look radiant and fresh, non-touring is about makeup that looks like your real skin, not heavily sculptured with obvious frost, think fresh, natural and dewy, with just the right amount of highlight to subtly define your features. Similar to the no-makeup-makeup look, non-touring makes you feel and look like you are wearing nothing at all – perfect for day to night! This is wearable and undetectable so your skin looks great in person and will look just as good in selfies.

There are three effortless steps in achieving this daytime friendly look.

Step 1:

Begin by priming skin to create a smooth even base, your primer should suit your skin type, normal to dry skin types will love Smooth Affair Facial Primer and Brightener as it restores moisture and radiance to skin. We recommend Smooth Affair Primer for Oily Skin for oilier skin types; this primer visibly reduces shine and the appearance of pores creating the ideal makeup canvas.

Step 2:

This look calls for lightweight coverage, so try our Dream Tint Tinted Moisturiser to even skin tone and give your complexion a dewy soft focus effect, as well SPF 15 protection. Our Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream will cover blemishes and deliver a velvety smooth finish to skin, so it’s a great option for those needing a little extra coverage.

Step 3:

The last step in creating this non-makeup look is to allow skin to capture the light. Apply a blend of the two palest shades from jane iredale’s Moonglow Quad Bronzer, using the White Fan Brush, and gently sweep onto the high planes of the face where the light naturally bounces off the skin – on the tops of the cheekbones and the brow bone, along the bridge of the nose and on the cupids bow (upper lip).

Yes, you can train in jane!

Have you got skin flaws that you can’t bear to face that stop you from heading to the gym? Maybe you didn’t realise that if you invest in a clean and pure makeup range that is designed to be an extension of skin care, you actually can train in makeup. No more feeling bare-faced or skipping your workout if you skin is misbehaving. The breathability of our non-comedogenic foundations means no more congestion and even better, makeup that won’t run and leave you with streaks – even during that spin class!

Train in Jane - Blog Post Image

Not all makeup can be worn when exercising; generally speaking sweating it out in makeup that contains fillers, talc, parabens, perfumes, FD&C dyes isn’t the best for your skin. If you want to add a bit of colour or coverage to your bare face, make sure you are using pure minerals and a brand that contributes to skin health. Which is why we’re so pleased to tell you that you can, in fact, train in jane!

Why? There’s a few good reasons…

Non-comedogenic – what does it mean?

Laboratory tests confirm that all of our products are non-comedogenic, meaning they do not block pores, so you can confidently wear jane iredale mineral makeup when exercising.

Sensitivity

We steer clear of three major sensitisers in makeup; synthetic fragrance, petroleum based colourants and synthetic preservatives. This reduces the likelihood of irritated skin during exercise, because your skin can breathe and function normally!

Steak-free

Our minerals bind together upon application, which means they resist running, creasing and smearing. They have a high water resistant rating which means sweat doesn’t affect their staying-power. If you use a hand towel to wipe your forehead, simply pat your sweat away rather than wiping to reset your minerals for the rest of your workout.

Sun Protection

Rain, hail or shine, we know many of you love to exercise outdoors, which is why wearing a physical sunscreen while you are outside is the one of the most important skin care safeguards you can use against UV radiation. If you’re looking for a multi-tasking product, our Amazing Base Loose Mineral Powder, PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation, Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream and Dream Tint Tinted Moisturiser provide four important functions in one: Foundation, concealer, sun protection and active skin care benefits. These can all be applied as a sheer coverage to give you the SPF protection you need while you train without your skin looking heavily made up with makeup. The sheer coverage will give your skin a beautiful fresh finish and most of all keep you protected with instant UV protection.

Stay Calm

Here’s one for the yogi’s out there – calm mind and calm skin! We make a conscious effort to include ingredients in our products that are calming and soothing; like white lotus flower, cucumber fruit extract, licorice root extract, rosemary leaf extract, willow bark extract, grape seed extract and more. We know that these luxurious botanicals measurably contribute to skin health.

Train in jane iredale to ensure you’re taking care of yourself, from the outside in! Pigmentation, breakout, rosacea… there’s no excuse not to hit the gym. Keeping active will clear your mind, clear your skin and enhance your life. Just make sure you are wearing pure minerals!

Nourish with jane iredale – 8 key products!

In winter, it’s easy to let our regular skincare routine fall by the wayside, as we rug up in layer upon layer and spend more time indoors (Netflix anyone?).

If you do decide to venture outdoors, harsh winds and extreme temperatures can cause damage to the protective layers of your skin, as can huddling by the heater. In winter, we tend to move from one extreme to the other, hot to cold, and this can dry skin out, making it feel dehydrated, dry and even flaky! At jane iredale, we’re dedicated to helping you reveal your most radiant skin (and helping you keep it that way), so we’ve put together a list of our favourite double duty products for winter!

Keep your skin hydrated this winter with these 8 double-duty jane iredale products!

SMOOTH AFFAIR® FACIAL PRIMER & BRIGHTENER

Our Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener is the perfect skin-quenching primer that prepares the skin so makeup goes on easier and lasts longer. It also helps maintain the skin’s youthful elasticity and minimise pores and fine lines while bringing out your natural radiance.

Flushed Cheeks

A healthy flush looks great on every complexion!

Add blush to your makeup ritual for double duty beauty. It’ll bring life to your makeup look and if applied strategically it can slim, lift, sharpen, soften or widen your face shape. If contouring is not your thing, blush should be. And not just any blush, make it jane iredale PurePressed Blush because it’s beautifully formulated with pure minerals and antioxidants, it’s non-comedogenic, which means it’s not going to cause breakouts or congestion and it’s free from chemicals, synthetic dyes and irritating ingredients.

Now, you may ask, what’s the best way to apply it so that it looks natural and soft? It’s as easy as one, two, three!

  1. Choose your shade
  2. Using the White fan brush, pinch the hairs together and swirl across your blush
  3. Apply in upwards strokes along your cheek bone

Voile, a soft wash of blush that blends beautifully and adds youth to your face.

PRO TIP

Blush for your face shape – recognise which areas to define and highlight to best suit your face.

Before undertaking these steps, it is important to identify your cheekbones and the apples of your cheeks. To find your apples, smile in the mirror and the fullest part of your cheek is where your apples will be. To find your cheekbones, suck in your cheeks so they become more visible.

Make sure that regardless of where you find your apple or cheekbones, you do not apply your blush too close to your nose. Generally the width of your finger or brush is enough distance.

  • Heart-shaped face: To balance a heart-shaped face, apply the PurePressed Blush just below the apples of your face and blend out towards your hairline.
  • Round face: For a round face, begin applying the PurePressed Blush on the apple of your cheek and blend upwards towards the hairline. This creates a more angular defined face. Make sure that you apply this line a little higher than your would your bronzer, but lower than your highlighter.
  • Long face: When applying blush for a longer face, it is important that you blend horizontally across the apple of your cheek to broaden across your face to create the illusion of a more balanced face.

Blush doesn’t have to be pink and boring, switch to swirls of Tawny to warm up your complexion. We are loving jane iredale PurePressed Blush in Flawless and Copper Wind this season.

Suggested jane iredale tools for blush application: White fan, Dome Brush, Flocked Sponge

STEP 2:

Wipe your brush clean on a tissue, and then apply the water resistant pigmented powder (depending on your natural colour) to the brows. This will add colour and depth. The powder adheres to the wax creating a beautiful soft finish. First, outline the brows using light brush strokes and continue until the brow is shaped. Next fill the inside of your brow, making it darker with the residue left on the brush.

How to wear it: Pantone Colour of the Year.

For the first time, the 2016 Pantone Colour of the year is a gorgeous blend of two colours; Rose Quartz and Serenity.

“Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace” – Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director Pantone Colour Institute.

The two stunning shades work well for most skin tones, used individually or combined, and to celebrate we’re sharing our top picks to make the Pantone look effortlessly wearable!

Rose Quartz picks we love, for a warm and embracing rose tone.

In Touch Highlighter in Complete: This creamy lightweight highlighter will add a soft glow to any look. Illuminate your skin with a highlighter that creates a natural-looking radiance, with the added bonus of light-diffusing, soft focus properties. For the best effect, glide across the top of your cheekbones, brow bones and the bridge of your nose.

PureMoist Lipstick in Chloe: Is there anything more feminine than a pink lip? We don’t think so! This Lipstick will dress your lips in long lasting colour and the combination of orange peel wax, avocado and sunflower seed oils will work to moisturise and soothe your lips.

Quad Bronzer in Rose Dawn: This bronzer is a multi-purpose, brilliant addition to any makeup bag. Use it on your cheeks, eyes and lips, or as an all-over bronzer and highlighter. Mix and match the cool pink and bronze shades for a desirable all over radiance!

Eye Shere Liquid Eye Shadow in Pink Silk: This glamourous Eye Shere Liquid Eye Shadow has exceptional staying power, is quick drying and water resistant. Add to the inner corner of your eyes as a highlighter to make your eyes pop with pretty pink! Eye Sheres can be used alone as a liquid eye shadow or it can be worn underneath your powder eye shadow. It will act as a primer prolonging the wear of your eye shadow.

Serenity, for a hint of cool and tranquil blue.

Silver Lining PurePressed Eyeshadow Trio: Embrace your inner ice-queen and make sure that all eyes are on you with our Silver Lining PurePressed Eyeshadow Trio! Our PurePressed Eyeshadows are highly pigmented and long lasting. They can be used wet or dry; we love to apply using the Angled Liner Brush for a Pantone inspired liquid liner.

Violet Eyes and Platinum PurePressed Eyeshadows: These mineral-based PurePressed Eyeshadows are designed to enhance the colour and shape of the eye. They can be used wet or dry and are gentle and safe for sensitive eyes. A dusting of these highly pigmented eye shadows will create a long-lasting finish, without creasing.
