Give Your Makeup The Royal Treatment

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge 1st wedding anniversary

In celebration of the Queens Birthday long weekend, we’re bringing attention to the gorgeous Kate Middleton and her effortlessly chic makeup style.

We show you how to get the Duchess of Cambridge’s simple but stunning look down pat, with some lovely jane iredale favourites.

Never underestimate your base!

You must build from your base up in order to create that royal glow. Try Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream from jane iredale. Not only does it give you that angelic look, but it’s also nourishing and protective with SPF 25.

Avoid tired eyes.

With plenty of jet setting and royal visits around the globe, keeping up appearances isn’t always easy! To ensure you’re always looking well-rested (even after those late nights and early starts) use a concealer under your foundation.

Our Active Light Under-Eye Concealer covers and brightens at the same time, leaving you looking fresh as a daisy. Secret ingredients like cucumber and white tea extract also work to reduce puffiness at the same time!

Define your eyes, subtly.

Kate’s trademark look is the smoky eye, but not the late night disco-dancing style. Channel the Duchess with a softer more subdued version. We recommend the jane iredale Eyeshadow Kit Daytime which includes five subtle colours for gorgeous natural but definitive eyes.

Play down the lips.

To keep your look natural like Kate, don’t overdo it in the lippie department, especially when teamed with that smoky eye. We suggest gloss as the go-to rather than traditional lipstick. jane iredale PureGloss Lip Gloss is the perfect option for a relaxed but luscious pout. Opt for a lighter shade during the day and darken it up for a night time rendezvous.

How To: Wear Dark Lipstick

Dark Lips

At jane iredale, we know perfecting a dark lip can be a tricky one, especially if you are new to the look! The secret is to be bold and brave, don’t be afraid to refresh your look with dark plums and passionate reds that stand out on your face. Wear your strong, statement lip colour with confidence and enjoy the enviable stares your pout can create.

We’ve listed some simple steps below to help you perfect the dark lipstick look.

Keep it simple.

If you are going for a bold lip, keep the rest of your makeup subtle and simple. For a fresh look that really makes your lips pop, pull hair back into an easy ponytail and keep your cheeks and eyes quite bare and minimal, let your makeup revolve around your lips.

Think about your outfit choice as well, making sure it doesn’t clash with your lippie shade. Stick to neutral tones if you want to keep it safe, or go all out and match your outfit or accessories to you lips.

Line those lips.

Before you apply your gorgeous shade of dark lipstick, line your lips with a matching shade of lip liner, drawing around the shape of your lips to give them a natural border. Our jane iredale Lip Definers are soft enough to fill in your lips easily, but durable enough to provide a long-lasting base to the colour you layer over them. The great news is, they are gentle so can also be used on other areas of the face!

Colour match.

Sometimes it can be hard to find the confidence to try a new colour, so a little friendly advice from an expert might be just what you need. Our jane iredale stockists around Australia offer expert advice and will help you find the perfect shade to suit your skin tone and hair colour.

Our jane iredale PureMoist Lipstick leaves a luxurious feel on your lips that is hydrating and soothing – the perfect addition to brighten any outfit!

Maintenance is key.

Harsh winter winds can damage your lips and leave them feeling irritated and unhealthy. We exfoliate most other parts of our body in order to remove dry and dead skin cells, so why not apply this rule to your lips? Our Sugar&Butter Lip Exfoliator/Plumper is your new bestie for the winter months, restoring moisture to dry, chapped lips for a smooth and nourishing finish.

Be sure to pluck any stray hairs as they pop through, but don’t go overboard.

Even them out.

Pick up light and fine hairs using a natural brow tint.  Fill in your brows (ever so slightly) using a brow kit or gel, evening out gaps and helping to create a smooth shape. Our jane iredale Bitty Brow Kit includes three brushes, brow wax and pigmented brow powder.  It’s a great take-anywhere kit and it even fits perfectly into your handbag!

Our commitment to cruelty-free

A question we get asked frequently ‘Are your products cruelty free?’. Read on to learn more about jane iredale’s advocacy for cruelty-free manufacturing.

A commitment to no animal testing has always been at the core of the jane iredale brand.  We do not test our products on animals, use ingredients tested on animals or sell into markets that require animal testing, yes, jane iredale is not sold in China.

We are honored to announce that we have been certified cruelty-free by the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics’ (CCIC) Leaping Bunny Program, the leading internationally respected animal protection group for cruelty-free certification.  CCIC’s Leaping Bunny Program recognizes and supports companies that are doing their part to help eliminate the cruel and unnecessary use of animals in the testing of cosmetic products and ingredients, and do not allow third-party testing on animals for product registration purposes. This certification can be recognised internationally by The Leaping Bunny Logo which is highly regarded for its integrity and trustworthiness.

The Leaping Bunny Program offers the most up-to-date list of companies that have committed to no new animal testing throughout their manufacturing process, from ingredients to finished products, and do not allow third party testing on animals for product registration or other purposes in countries like China where animal testing is required.  By listing these companies in their Compassionate Shopping Guide and granting these companies the option to use the Leaping Bunny Logo on their products, it aims to promote the sale of animal-friendly products and make shopping for animal-friendly products easier and more trustworthy.

Leaping Bunny_janeiredale_jan2014As you may already know, for the past 14 years our no animal testing commitment has also been recognized by PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, the most widely recognized animal welfare organization in the U.S.  In 2005 jane iredale was certified by PETA as “cruelty-free”, and we are licensed to use the PETA Cruelty Free bunny logo.  We have been and will continue to be listed in PETA’s Cruelty-Free Shopping Guide which can be viewed at www.caringconsumer.com, and our longstanding relationship with PETA will not change.

As you can imagine, we are extremely proud of this international certification, and we know that this is something that you truly value, too.

Therapy for your skin

jane iredale Mineral foundations have changed the perception of makeup. They have become an integral part of patient care world-wide because of their benefits to the skin and their ability to conceal almost any distraction. Because our minerals are concentrated pigment, camouflage can be fast and easy, especially when covering any type of redness or erythema.

Skin conditions such as rosacea or acne, or procedures like chemical peels and microdermabrasion often result in red, inflamed skin. A yellow base such as Warm Silk, Amber, Warm Sienna or Golden Glow is the key to covering pronounced redness. You may need additional mineral camouflage using our extensive range of concealers for conditions such as bruising, scarring, hyperpigmentation and vitiligo.
janeiredale_foundationsOur makeup is now part of the solution, not part of the problem.

One of our Australian stockists, tells us how he came to choose jane iredale for his clients: “We made the decision to carry products recommended and trusted by dermatologists. I visited one of Australia’s most renowned dermatologists, Greg Goodman, who is a prescriber of mineral make up and then following further discussions with our clinic dermatologists, I recognized that the one brand that was very popular was jane iredale mineral makeup.

Many patients that come to see dermatologists with their skin conditions cannot tolerate mainstream products. This can be for many reasons. So from a health professional’s point of view, jane iredale was the cosmetic of choice because of its non-comedogenic effects. It’s free from parabens, phenoxyethanol and is low allergenic. In essence, it will not block the pores, and it allows the skin to breathe naturally. In addition to this, there is a low chance of the client having chemical or photo-sensitivities. Furthermore, it has an SPF factor. This is of great benefit, particularly when many clients are using medications that contain Vitamin A derivatives, and can have sensitivities to sunlight.

We provide a complimentary make over for patients that have procedures done at the clinic. I explain to the clients about the outstanding benefits of the jane iredale range of mineral makeup, and then Brittany, our make-up artist, works her magic with foundation matching and added colour. There seems to be a preconception that mineral makeup doesn’t provide enough coverage but once our clients have jane iredale on, they fall in love with it. Brittany has been sharing the benefits of the BB cream, and most of the girls at the clinic now use the BB cream because of its great texture and coverage.

In my experience, patients are often told by skin specialists to avoid makeup. Understandably, most people panic at this stage, as they need coverage.  We recommend jane iredale mineral makeup, especially to these clients, because it doesn’t block the pores or affect their treatment. Bottom line is that the benefits of jane iredale are backed by research and testing. Once you read more about jane iredale products and understand the theory and benefits of using the range, it really is outstanding!
Westside Derm_Andrew_dec2013To celebrate the opening of My Skin retail showroom within the Westside Dermatology Clinic, we are running a two-day promotion this week (6-7 December 2013) which cannot be missed!” says Andrew Tran, Pharmaceutical health Professional.
