Which Foundation is Right for You?

Foundations Blog ImageLet’s talk about foundation. As the name implies, it is the canvas for your makeup. Aside from your moisturiser and/or serum, it is the closest product to your skin. That’s why we have worked diligently to bring you the healthiest mineral formulations we can possibly create to make sure your base is contributing to your skin health, day in and day out.

We always use the purest minerals to ensure they give you a flawless finish when applied. But, we aren’t called “The Skin Care Makeup” for nothing! Our foundations (and all of our products) also include ingredients that work “behind the scenes” to improve the health of your skin. One of our favourite things to hear is, after using our products regularly, our fans have a more radiant skin naturally.

Choosing the Right Mineral Foundation

Out of our five different mineral foundations and over 60 shades, which one is right for you? The short answer is all of them could work for you depending on your look. If you have to choose only one, here are some tips to help you narrow it down.


AMAZING BASE LOOSE MINERAL POWDER SPF 20

AmazingBase - Golden Glow - 72dpi

Finish: Dewy
Coverage: Sheer to full
Use it if… You have normal to dry skin and are looking for a loose mineral foundation that gives a sheer to medium coverage. Amazing Base can be applied using a Chisel Powder Brush for sheer to medium coverage or a Flocked Sponge for full coverage.
Pro Tip: Bring this foundation with you when you travel by putting it in the Refill-Me Refillable Loose Powder Brush, a mess-free way to apply loose powder on-the-go.


PUREPRESSED BASE MINERAL FOUNDATION REFILL SPF 15-20Rose Gold Refillable Compact with Refill - 72dpi

Finish: Semi-matte
Coverage: Sheer to full
Use it if… You have normal to oily skin and are looking for a simple, everyday foundation. Our PurePressed Base comes in 24 shades for women of all skin tones, is made from micronised minerals and is free of synthetic chemicals. Need more of a reason to love this powder? It is oil free, weightless and can be used as a foundation, finishing powder and concealer. Apply it with the Handi Brush for sheer to medium coverage or the Flocked Sponge for full coverage.
Pro Tip: PurePressed Base can also be used for highlighting and contouring. Choose colours that are a shade or two darker than your skin tone as a contour powder and a shade or two lighter as a highlighter.


GLOW TIME FULL COVERAGE MINERAL BB CREAM SPF 17-25GlowTime BB Cream - SPF25 - 72dpi

Finish: Velvety
Coverage: Full
Use it if… You have normal to dry skin and are looking for a full coverage foundation to disguise blemishes or dark spots. With Glow Time BB Cream, a little goes a long way. Four small dots of this product will easily cover the entire face and brighten your skin. This nourishing full coverage formula packed with pigment will give your skin a flawless, even finish. Glow Time BB1, BB3, BB5, BB6, BB7 & BB8 offer an SPF 25 while Glow Time BB9, BB11 & BB12 have an SPF rating of 17. The lower rating ensures no ashy finish, which is a common issue when applying SPF on darker skin tones.
Pro Tip: Mix Glow Time BB Cream with a little bit of Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener to help it glide on your skin without diluting the foundation colour.


LIQUID MINERALSLiquid Mineral Foundation - Natural - 72dpi

Finish: Dewy
Coverage: Sheer to medium
Use it if… You want an anti-ageing foundation that doubles as a powerful skin treatment. Ideally suited to mature skins, but anyone with a normal to dry skin searching for a dewy finish should try this formula, it’s like none other. Liquid Minerals is a hydrating treatment serum with pigment that helps to soothe the skin, reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and pores and evens out skin tone. State-of-the-art technology prevents active ingredients Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C and Coenzyme Q10 from degrading, allowing them to time release into the skin. Not only does this foundation look attractive, it does wonders for the health of the skin.
Pro Tip: If you have extra dry skin during winter, add Liquid Minerals to your makeup routine because it contains Hyaluronic Acid, which attracts moisture and holds up 1,000 times its weight in water. This is our only foundation that doesn’t contain a broad spectrum SPF so be sure to dust a little Amazing Base or PurePressed Base on top for SPF protection.


DREAM TINT TINTED MOISTURISER SPF 15Dream Tint - 72dpi

Finish: Light
Coverage: Sheer to medium
Use it if… You want the no-makeup- makeup look that offers lightweight coverage and a smooth finish to the skin. Dream Tint can be applied with your fingers, just like any other moisturiser. While the coverage is sheer, the results are impactful. Dream Tint gives a soft-focus effect that helps minimise the appearance of fine lines and enlarged pores while protecting the skin with SPF 15. Great for teenagers and men that react to normal sunscreen and women searching for an effective, good-for-you tinted moisturiser.
Pro Tip: Dream Tint is oil free, so it is a great base for oily skin. It can be used to extend the wear of our mineral powders when used as a primer.


HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT FOUNDATION SHADE

We’ve all heard that most women are wearing the wrong foundation shade, but that doesn’t have to be true for you. When testing foundation shades on yourself, follow these three steps:

  1. Apply a stripe of foundation on your jawline (we usually do this with two or three shades for comparison).
  2. Spray it with one of our Hydration Sprays to set the minerals.
  3. If it looks like it’s disappeared on your skin, that’s your shade.

If you want a personalised foundation prescription now, take our Shade Finder Quiz to see which of our mineral foundations is right for you and which shades best match your skin tone.

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!

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.

8 New Years Resolutions For Your Beauty Routine

Blog Post Images - Beauty Resolutions 20152

The start of a new year… there’s no better time to finesse your list of resolutions for the year ahead. Many of our resolutions focus on health and wellbeing – eating healthier, exercising more or kicking a bad habit – but this year we challenge you to include your beauty regime into your goal setting so that you glow all year round.

In the spirit of the New Year, we’ve curated our favourite beauty hacks and skin pick-me-ups that need to be on your new year’s resolution list, to keep your complexion on the right track. Keeping things simple so that you’ll actually stick to your intentions…

Exfoliate

We know you’ve heard it before but as we age, our skin ages with us and takes more and more time to renew itself, cell turn over slows down every single year. Exfoliating daily is one of the simplest ways to jumpstart the renewal process of skin cells to keep your skin looking plump and feeling refreshed. Start using your Magic Mitt every day. You’ll be amazed at how smooth your skin will feel within a month of everyday use. Even your lips can use a little exfoliation, so get scrubbing with our Sugar & Butter Lip Exfoliator/Plumper for a perfectly smooth and nourished pout with a delicious organic sugar taste – yum!

Replenish & Hydrate

Give back to your skin and replenish often with a facial spritz: our range of organic hydration sprays will help you achieve plump, soft skin that will see you looking fresh-faced and radiant well into the New Year. When it’s hot and humid, we can feel the need to skip our mosituriser in the morning, not wanting to add shine and oiliness to the surface of the skin. Well now you don’t have to miss out on a hydration boost, rather spritz and keep your skin comfortable and protected. It’s that easy.

Be Sun Smart

It’s so important to remember that the sun’s UV rays can cause damage at any time of the year – not just in summer. We understand that adding another step to your makeup routine, such as applying sunscreen, isn’t for everyone, which is why we have a range of mineral foundations and bases that also provide broad spectrum SPF protection;  try our semi-matte PurePressed® Base Mineral Foundation, our oil-free and SFP 15 Dream Tint® Tinted Moisturizer, or our full coverage SFP 25 Glow Time® Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream, our SPF 20 Amazing Base® Loose Mineral Powder, and don’t forget to protect your pout with LipDrink SPF 15 Lip Balm, it comes in three shades. The most important goal you can set for your skin this year is – SPF daily! Do not go a day without SPF, it’s a skin saver.

Clean Your Makeup Brushes

Proper brush care is essential to keeping your skin pure and healthy! Dissolving the build up of grime, excess makeup and your skins natural oils will ensure that you reduce the chance of transferring any bacteria or dirt from your brushes to your skin. Make the effort to clean your brushes every month using a gentle shampoo and conditioner.

Get Your Beauty Sleep

The silly season can take it’s toll on your sleeping pattern and being overtired will not only impact your mental alertness, but can also impact your appearance on the outside (did someone say dull complexion and dark under eye circles?). Take time out in the new year and get some well deserved shut-eye, which you’ve no doubt seriously earned in 2015! If you’re still struggling with those pesky dark circles, try our Enlighten Concealer with its peach undertones that works wonders on dark circles and pigmentation marks. Or try Active Light Under Eye Concealer; with ingredients like cucumber, white tea extract and buckwheat wax, this miracle worker will calm tired eyes and help to reduce puffiness. The added benefit of avocado and sunflower oil gently nourishes the delicate eye area!

Stick To It

As they say “it won’t happen overnight, but it will happen!” Waiting for a new skin treatment to show results can be a test of patience, but sticking to your new year’s beauty regime is the best thing you can do for your skin in 2016. Do something today that your future self will thank you for.

Say goodbye to shiny Summer skin with jane iredale!

Summer is finally here! While we look forward to balmy nights, sunny days on the farm or maybe salty swims at the beach, the festive days ahead mean it’s a new season. With every season, taking check of your skin care and makeup routine will help you to be ready for what lies ahead. This time of year, we have certain products that simply fly off the shelf and are commonly requested as summer must-haves, for obvious reasons.

For many, warmer weather means shiny skin and really, there’s nothing glam about an oily t-zone peeking through your makeup. So, we’re sharing our tricks to combat misbehaving skin so that you look shine-proof this Summer. Looking fresh, with a healthy glow and flawless finish is what we are all about. Investing in makeup that offers skin care benefits is a must while you sweat it out this season. Stay away from products that congest the skin, are riddled with perfumes and preservatives and are not clean or safe. You only have one skin, so look after it and don’t be afraid to be fussy!

The jane iredale Oil Control range will keep your skin in check, your complexion shine free while maintaining your skins pH. With these tips, you’ll be looking your radiant best at all of your Summer soirees.

2. Dreamy tint

During the warmer months, foundation is likely to feel much heavier on your skin. We recommend switching to a lighter, tinted moisturiser with SPF to achieve a dewy, clear complexion. Dream Tint Tinted Moisturiser has been formulated with lightweight minerals to provide a sheer to medium coverage, while also including algae extract and an SPF 15 to hydrate and protect the skin after an afternoon in the sun.

Banish oily skin with a mattifying finishing powder. The Amazing Matte Loose Finish Powder will leave you shine-free and will not dry or dull your complexion. You can apply the finishing powder under or over your makeup, meaning that you can touch up later in the day if necessary!

5. Beyond Matte HD Matifying Powders

Professional makeup artists around the globe swear by this finishing powder. It comes in four colour ways and is used over your foundation so that your skin looks immaculate in photos or on television. We love using it everyday for an airbrushed finish. It is ultra water resistant, designed for the most sensitive skins, HDTV approved and works to eliminate shine, lessen transference, refine the look of pores and give your skin a super smooth, velvety finish.

  • The lilac does wonders to brighten sallow complexions, use this over your cream foundation and just before your loose or pressed powder application for best results
  • The translucent is ideal for light to medium skin tones
  • The dark is perfect for medium to dark skin tones and also makes a great bronzer for contouring.

Here are some great tips for how to achieve different matte finishes with Beyond Matte HD Matifying Powder, by using different brushes:

  • To get a red-carpet, HD-ready look that is totally matte with a velvety smooth finish on the skin, apply Beyond Matte with the Chisel Powder Brush.
  • For a medium matte finish, dust on with the Blending Brush. This deposits slightly less powder on the skin for a clean, sophisticated look.
  • To leave a little glow on the skin (the elusive dewy-matte!) apply Beyond Matte with the White Fan Brush. This leaves just a hint of product on the skin for a natural, luminous finish.

And if that’s not enough, here are a few extra tricks from the experts:

  • For a controlled glow, apply Beyond Matte to the center of cheeks, nose, forehead and chin – the often shiny T-zone.
  • Thinking lips, you can make your lipstick more vivid by applying Beyond Matte over the entire mouth area with your brush before applying your lip colour.
  • To tone down shimmery eye shadow, apply Beyond Matte on top with the Large Shader Brush.
  • The Peach warms up pale skin.

Summer Skin Secrets – jane iredale’s top tips and tricks

Summer Skin Secrets - Blog Images

We know the Australian sun can be relentless and, as summer starts to creep up, we think it’s time to talk seriously about summer skin care. That means thinking more about SPF products, but it also means caring for your skin to ensure that it maintains a gorgeous glow, all year round.

The secret to a radiant, glowing complexion comes down to one essential thing: the way you care for your skin. So, we’re taking it back to basics and sharing our top tips and tricks so you can ensure that your skin is prepped and protected from the harsh UV rays this summer.

PREP.

It’s all about preparation. Fail to prepare, prepare to fail. Never underestimate the power of exfoliation. Make best friends with your Magic Mitt to remove excess dead skin, which can build up when your skin dries out after being exposed to the sun and sea. Dead skin cells can cause congestion, so exfoliating is a simple way to ensure that your moisturiser works effectively, and it’s the first step to achieving a luminous glow all over.
HYDRATE.

Hydration is often taken for granted when it comes to your beauty regime. Moisturising and keeping skin hydrated, especially on your face, is the key to a clear complexion. Before applying makeup, start by prepping your skin with a spritz of one of our hydrating sprays. Carefully formulated to assist hydration of the deeper cells, a little hydration spray goes a long way and includes ingredients that will work to soothe and protect the skin, whilst plumping out any fine lines so your foundation glides on more smoothly. Faithfully reapplying the hydration spray will not only keep your skin conditioned and protected, but it will deliver a powerful source of antioxidants which help to combat the signs of ageing – which can make themselves known during and after sun exposure.

GET YOUR SPF ON.

Wether you are poolside, or amongst the hustle and bustle of Bondi Beach, without a decent layer of SPF on your bod, you’re bound to start seeing the effects of mother nature’s rays. They say ‘slip, slop slap’, and we certainly agree! Sourcing a high SPF sunscreen will see you through the warmer weather with ease. Although, it’s not enough to just have one layer, you need to reapply, and reapply frequently. You really should be applying sun protection everyday, so, to make things simple, jane iredale has created a suite of multi-tasking products and foundations that protect with SPF as they do their primary job. Try our PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation, Dream Tint Tinted Moisturiser or Glow Time BB Cream.

DON’T FORGET ABOUT YOUR LIPS.

Chapped lips are uncomfortable and painful and are often the result of the sun’s harsh effects. Don’t forget that whilst you may have lathered up in sunscreen, you may have missed your lips. Delivering ample hydration, jane iredale LipDrink Lip Balm takes immediate action, combatting both UVA and UVB rays, with its SPF 15 protection. The double beauty duty, available in three shades, also features essential oils and waxes, which deliver the ultimate protection as well as nourish the deep layers of the skin.

FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT.

Don’t be scared to bronze up the unauthentic way (shhh!). Now considered one of the best beauty cheats, self-tanners are a great way to enhance your skin’s natural colour and shine, without inflicting harmful damage from sun exposure. Whilst providing some protection from the suns rays, self-tanner should always be used alongside sunscreen. Our go-to is the Tantasia Self Tanner – a moisturizing natural bronzer, and self tanner for the face and body. And…. The delicate citrus scent is uplifting and has none of the unpleasant after-smell often associated with self-tanners.

It’s so important to care for your skin, we can’t stress this enough. At the end of the day – your skin is yours, and yours forever. Reap the rewards and enjoy the confidence of radiant, glowing skin this summer by enlisting the top tips and tricks from jane iredale – you can’t go wrong!

Beat the winter blues with a gorgeous new jane iredale beauty look…

They say that change is as good as a holiday and winter is the perfect time to change up your jane iredale makeup routine.

As the days grow cooler and longer, we choose to beat the winter blues by experimenting with a warm new beauty look. There’s no better way to heat up your look than with a bold and fiery red lip. We know that in winter it’s easy to turn to dark and sultry shades, but a bold red lip is one of our favourite makeup looks. It never goes out of style and transcends seasons.

Whilst you can’t go wrong with neutral colours, a perfect red pout helps take your look up a notch, so we’re sharing some simple tips to help you warm up your winter beauty look; for a modern twist, we’re teaming our favourite red lip with a navy eye and flushed cheeks.

You can easily achieve this look by following our simple guide below:

About Face.

  1. Start by applying our DREAM TINT® TINTED MOISTURIZER using your fingertips or the Blending Brush. For extra sun protection apply a touch of PUREPRESSED® BASE MINERAL FOUNDATION, which features a broad spectrum SPF 20 to protect skin from harsh UVA/UVB rays, which are still around in winter!
  2. Using your fingertips apply Clarity IN TOUCH® HIGHLIGHTER Cream Blush to the apples of your cheeks.
  3. Next, apply Sunbeam QUAD BRONZER along your hairline, top of your cheekbones, jaw line and bridge of your nose using the White Fan Brush. When applying bronzer always keep in mind where the sun would naturally give you a bronzed look and apply just to those places to get the most natural finish.

All About Accentuating Eyes.

  1. Line your top lash line with Lapis Lazuli MYSTIKOL and wing out slightly. Also line the outer 3/4 of your bottom lash line.
  2. Using the highlighter end of Lapis Lazuli MYSTIKOL, highlight the inner corner of your eye.
  3. Apply PURELASH® LASH EXTENDER & CONDITIONER followed by Navy PURELASH® MASCARA.
