Recreate the look: Tessa-Jay Slight

The countdown is on. With the Summer season upon us and the Christmas break just around the corner, it’s safe to assume that your social calendar is brimming with events!

Draw some makeup inspiration from this gorgeous, summer jane iredale look that our very talented Australian Makeup Artist, Celeste Jackson, created on the beautiful Tessa-Jay Slight (blogger at Circa Now). We are loving this bronzed, smoky eyed, nude lip combination!

TessaJay - Polo in the City[1]

We think that this makeup combination will suit every festive event on your calendar and outfit for that matter; you can’t go past a silver smoky eye, flawless looking skin and a natural looking lip. Make your eyes the center of attention and just add some jewellery – Voila!

Here are Celeste’s steps on how to recreate the look at home with jane iredale.

Step 1- Prep your base

Using the Blending Brush, lightly apply your Smooth Affair for Oily Skin Facial Primer and Brightener. You’ll be amazed how far this primer will go; you only need a little bit! The product’s revolutionary PoreAwayTM technology will create an ideal makeup canvas and will help fight shine (an essential for a photo finish!).

Step 2- Complexion

Using your DreamTint Tinted Moisturiser in Medium or Medium/Dark (depending on your skin tone), use your Blending Brush to lightly apply your tinted moisturiser. Starting along your cheekbone, work the product from up to your jawline upwards. Tip: Never start applying foundation at your forehead, as the product won’t spread far enough and is likely to get stuck along your hair line. When starting your application, often a large portion of the product will be distributed on your first point of skin contact, so try starting on your lower cheek, near the ear, blending up and outwards for an even finish.

Step 3- Become a bronzed beauty! 

Celeste says that the secret behind a gorgeous, bronzed glow is mixing up your bronzing powders. For Tessa, she started by lightly brushing the Quad Bronzer, in Moonglow onto her cheeks, eyes and lips with the White Fan Brush. To contour her cheeks, she used the Chisel Powder Brush to apply the So Bronze Bronzing Powder to add depth to her face and accentuate her cheekbones.

Step 4- Those smoky eyes…. 

Line the upper and lower lash line with the Jelly Jar Gel Eyeliner in black and let dry. Smudge lightly to soften the edges. Using a sponge, press your Eye Shere Liquid Eye shadow in Grey Silk onto the eyelid, smudging lightly along the lower lash line. Using an Eye Shader Brush, press the Steamy PurePressed Eye Shadow onto the outer half of your eyelid, blending towards the crease of your eye. Blend well with a brush to soften any lines and finish off with a good coating of Longest Lash Mascara in black.

Step 5- Pucker up

Nude shades are on everyone’s lips this season! Start with your Lip Pencil in the Spice shade to outline the shape of your lips. This will make them appear fuller and larger while adding definition! Fill in your lips with Buff LipDrink or use a tiny swipe of Forever Pink Just Kissed Lip & Cheek Stain to add a light pink flush to your lips. This will give you a semi matte nude lip finish. Another nude favourite is Lip Fixation in Craving, finished with a PureGloss Lip Gloss in Soft Peach, giving you more of a gloss/wet looking lip. The choice is yours.

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!

SUMMER SKIN SAVERS

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.

1. Prime time

The revolutionary Smooth Affair for Oily Skin Facial Primer and Brightener will change the way you think of primers. Designed to bring out your natural radiance, this product will even out skin tone and minimise and reduce the visibility of fine lines and pores. It’ll help to keep your foundation on throughout the day so that you have minimal touch-ups. Applied prior to makeup application, Smooth Affair is a light gel/cream that helps to create a smooth, slightly matte-based finish and this primer we can guarantee will soon become your summer savior! Trust us.

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.

3. Flawless finish

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!

4. Blot away

Introducing the Facial Blotting Papers with Compact. Our all natural blotting papers are gentle on your skin, while ridding it of oil, meaning that you can use them as much as you like throughout the day! Crafted from organic flax seed, the jane iredale blotting papers come in a stunning, sleek compact that will fit perfectly into your handbag. You’ll be ready to fight shine at all times.

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!

Bright and brilliant with jane iredale

Our founder, Jane Iredale has carefully designed our product to reflect each season and as we head into summer, we think it’s time to liven up your look with a touch of brilliance, and a vibrant lip!

We know that some of you are probably thinking that a bright lip isn’t for you, but we’re challenging you to think again. With so many different formulas and lip shades to choose from in the jane iredale collection, you’re sure to find a bright colour that suits you, whether it’s a full colour finish, or a sumptuous stain.

A bright lip is a simple way to take your daytime look to the next level, or help you head straight into the evening with confidence, and all jane iredale lip colours come with the added bonus of being highly hydrating, nourishing and soothing. Also, if you’re wearing a bright lip you can keep things natural everywhere else. To learn how to achieve this season’s must-have vibrant pout, read our simple how-to guide below…

First, prepare your pout.
If you want the perfect shade, as well as a long lasting finish, then you’ve got to prepare your pout by caring for your lips first (this applies whether you’re planning to wear makeup or not!).  Enlisting the help of our much loved jane iredale Sugar & Butter Lip Exfoliator and Plumper, you’re lips will be soft and smooth in no time and you’ll have the perfect base to build up your colour. Use the sugar end to exfoliate, and follow with the Lip Plumper end to restore moisture to thirsty lips. Providing hydration and creating a smooth and polished lip, this lip exfoliator and plumper is a wonderful first step to help you achieve the ultimate bright lip.

Sugar&Butter Lip Scrub - 72dpi
Line em’ up!
The best way to create a pronounced lip is to line them, plus this will prevent any lip colour bleeding into the area around your mouth. You can also use a lip liner to completely fill in your lips, which will give you a creamy base to work with, whilst also providing shape and definition. Try our Lip Pencil in a shade close to your chosen bright lipstick.

Fill, fill, and… fill.

Once you’ve chosen your preferred bright lip shade, apply a light layer and build to create your desired look. If you’re after a subtle, yet brilliant shade we love our NEW Forever Red Just Kissed® Lip and Cheek Stain or our PlayOn Lip Crayon in Charming, Hot or Saucy, which are perfect summer shades! For those keen on a deeper colour you can’t go past Lip Fixation® or one of our PureMoist® Lipstick shades. 

PlayOn Lip Crayons - 72dpi

Lastly, add a touch of gloss.

A quick swipe of our PureGloss Lip Gloss will not only create a shiny, pretty smile, but will also make your lips look fuller and more plump. Our luscious lip gloss will also soothe, hydrate and protect your pout!

To remove colour simply use our Botanical Make Up Remover to revert back to your fresh-faced self, and then try another shade tomorrow.

Calling upon these handy tricks will ensure that your lip look is longwearing, and it will ensure that you maintain the hydration, which is essential when it comes to glowing lips.

New Collection just in time for the festive season!

 

The wait is over! We are so excited to introduce our beautiful holiday collection for 2015. It includes a gorgeous limited edition eye shadow palette In The Blink Of A Smoky Eye and a striking new shade of Just Kissed Lip & Cheek stain called Forever Red.

Stunning jane iredale looks for all of your Spring soirees

You’ve RSVP’d yes to the event, have booked your blow wave and have your outfit picked. All that’s left to decide on is which makeup look is going to pull your style together. As the party season swings into gear, we’ve put together three of our favourite special occasion looks to help you get ready for any celebration… we know you’ll want to try them all!

Cocktail party

‘In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.’ – Coco Chanel.

For formal occasions, nothing speaks of timeless glamour more than a black liquid liner and a red lip. This classic look is our jane iredale modern take on old Hollywood glamour.

  1. After finishing your foundation application and base, start by applying the Jelly Jar Gel Eyeliner in ‘black’ using the Angle Eyeliner Brush. Hold the brush at the inside of your eye and lengthen along the top of the lash line, extending the line on the outer corner of the eye to create a sexy winged look. For full volume lashes (is there anything more gorgeous?!), apply Longest Lash Thickening and Lengthening Mascara in ‘Black Ice’ on your top and bottom lashes.
  2. Now to finish with an iconic red lip! The key to nailing this standout feature is to prep the lips prior to application. Start by exfoliating your lips with our Sugar&Butter Lip Exfoliator/Plumper, the organic brown sugar and shea butter will gently remove any surface dryness for a smooth application of colour.
  3. You’ll then need to make sure that the skin around the mouth is free from any redness, as a red lipstick can exaggerate other redness and make the lips look messy! Lightly dust your mineral powder or foundation around the edges of the mouth and then apply PlayOn Lip Crayon in ‘Hot’. This long wearing, hot red shade will be sure to stay put all night long! 

Garden get-together

For a casual celebration your makeup should look natural and fresh! We’re embracing the latest “Strobing” trend to perfect the look of luminous, dewy skin and to give your makeup an incandescent glow.

  1. Start by applying your Smooth Affair Facial Primer and Brightener, this will prep your skin and promote radiance and luminosity underneath your foundation. With your fingertips, apply Liquid Minerals liberally to even out your skin tone and give your skin a dewy finish.
  2. Apply Eye Shere Liquid Eye Shadow in ‘Champagne’: highlight the inner corners of your eyelids. This will add a soft wash of colour to your eyes.
  3. Finish by using the In Touch Cream Blush in ‘Complete’ to highlight the high planes of the face. 

Christmas party ready

Screen Shot 2015-10-30 at 5.10.02 pm

Shake up your makeup look for your colleagues who see you every day in your same old, same old. To heat things up, we’re loving pink and coral lips with soft eye and cheek shades. Let your lips lead the way!

  1. After applying your base, lightly dust Whisper PurePressed Blush over your cheekbones.
  2. Using your Mini Dome Brush, highlight your eyelids with a soft coloured eye shadow, like Rose Gold, Dreamy Pink, Supernova, Dawn or Crushed Ice PurePressed Eye Shadow. Apply the colour over the eyelid and blend through the crease.
  3. Coat your top and bottom lashes using the Longest Lash Thickening and Lengthening Mascara in ‘Black Ice’ to define, separate and lengthen lashes.
  4. Now the lips. If you are a pink lip gal, try ‘Charming’ PlayOn Lip Crayon or ‘Craze’ Lip Fixation. If you are loving the coral craze, go for ‘Saucy’ PlayOn Lip Crayon, ‘Liz’ PureMoist Lipstick or ‘Tangerine’ PureGloss Lip Gloss with a ‘Peach’ Lip Pencil.

Spring makeup looks are all about a pop of fun colour, fresh looking skin, bright eyes and glossy lips. Be bold and try something new this season! We dare you!

This product gives an instant tint, but also a gradual self tan. Besides that, it’s very hydrating and helps the skin develop an even tan by stimulating the melanin synthesis.

Use a hint of Dream Tint Tinted Moisturiser to even out the skin and create an invisible, super lightweight finish. Blend a hint of In Touch Highlighter Cream Blush on your cheek, for radiance and a sheer glow. Use Beyond Matte HD Matifying Powder in Dark to contour the cheek bones softly. Make sure to blend well!

EYES

Keep them simple and sultry. I like the Mystikol Powdered Eyeliner/Highlighter in Dark Topaz, as it is easy to use. Simply blend the dark shade straight from the applicator, around the lash line, on top and bottom of your eyes, and blend with a small eye shadow brush.

Use the highlighter side on the inner corner of your eyes around the teardrop, to open the eyes. Frame the eyes by curling your eyelashes and coating them with Longest Lash Mascara in Black Ice.

LIPS

Use the PlayOn Lip Crayon in Blissful all over the lip, for a subtle natural sheen. You don’t want the look to be overdone, but rather look as if you came straight from the beach.

Fresh faced for the weekend with jane iredale

Talented makeup artist, Liv Lundelius shares with us her top tricks to create a natural and stunning look that is perfect for all of your weekend activities.

If you haven’t noticed lately, 90% of current high fashion editorials and campaigns showcase the ‘no-makeup-makeup look’, and it’s here to stay. It’s all about fresh skin, well groomed, full brows and a youthful glow.

COMPLEXION

If you are already blessed with great skin, dab on a little Dream Tint Tinted Moisturiser to give your skin a smooth finish. If you need more coverage use concealer and set with PurePressed Base Powder. Be selective and only apply coverage where you really need to (blemish, pigmentation, redness etc.) The more translucent the skin, the better!

You can brighten the eye area with Active Light Under-eye Concealer. You can also dab on a hint down the bridge of your nose and on top of the cupids bow to create a natural looking highlight. Use In Touch Highlighter on your cheeks. Set your makeup with Organic POMMISST Hydration Spray for a hydrated, natural look and long lasting finish.

EYES

Brows are important for all makeup looks but even more so when it comes to this very minimal look. To create luscious full brows and keep them in place use the Bitty Brow Kit. Apply Lid Primer to your upper lid, to even out the skin tone and create a subtle highlight. Using an eyeliner brush, run the smallest amount of Jelly Jar Gel Eyeliner in Espresso, onto the roots of your lashes for a subtle definition. Apply a little black or brown mascara and brush the lashes through for a very natural finish. I like to dab a little clear gloss or a light shimmer eye shadow in the inner corners of the eye to finish. 

LIPS

A tinted balm is all you need to keep your lips looking fresh and hydrated. Try jane iredale LipDrink SPF 15 Lip Balm in Buff, Crush or Sheer.
