Makeup for Cool Nights

Step out in full bloom on these cool nights with a clean and natural look that will see the night through, no matter the weather. At jane iredale we understand after five makeup can be tricky to perfect, especially on cooler nights with those harsh winds and fog in the air.

We have set out some simple steps to ensuring your makeup will last through the night and keep you at your natural and beautiful best.

Natural base.

A natural looking base is the key to mastering your makeup look. Add nourishment to dry skin by applying Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener with your fingertips all over the face in the morning to give longer wear on your foundation. Apply your foundation over the top and set with one of our botanical hydration sprays. Come five o’clock, a quick touch-up using your powder foundation and a Flocked Sponge is all you’ll need. Saving you time and product.

Statement eyes.

To ensure your eyes are the focal point of your evening makeup look, define them using PurePressed Eye Shadow. Simply apply a neutral shade of Cappuccino to your lids working your way from the inner corner right to the crease. The Chisel Shader Brush is the prefect blending tool for an even finish. Add a stroke of Black Gel Liner along your lash line to outline the eye. Next, get your lashes looking naturally thicker and longer using Jet Black PureLash Lengthening Mascara, formulated with triple-length cellulose fibres to add length and definition.  And finally, don’t forget your brows! A quick comb through using a PureBrow Brow Gel to tint and define your brows, will draw more attention to you eyes and make them ‘pop’.

Naturally Cheeky.

Bring life to your complexion by highlighting those cheekbones with PurePressed Blush. This lightweight blusher powder is formulated with nourishing antioxidants and minerals leaving you with a subtle, soft-washed look. Apply with the jane iredale Dome Brush, gently blending towards your temples. The best part is that it can also double as an eye shadow – you won’t find any chemical dyes or irritating ingredients in this product. We’ve also worn it as a rosy lip stain; simply apply with a wet brush and voile!

Long lasting lips.

When wearing a bold lip colour on a night out you want it to last, with no faded colour. To ensure the longevity of your product, line your lips with a matching shade of lip liner. Our jane iredale Lip Definers will create a durable long-lasting base to the colour you layer over them. Be daring, choose a darker shade of PureMoist Lipstick to finish your evening look. With 24 versatile colours to choose from, there’s a shade perfect for your completion.

20 Steps to Amazing Eyeliner

winged-eyeliner_janeiredale

1. If eyeliner is the only eye product you’re going to wear, start with clean dry

eyelids, devoid of any product or make up remover residue.

2. Oily eyelids can cause your eyeliner to smudge, crease or transfer. To avoid this,

blot the eyelid with a loose or pressed powder to ‘mattify’ the skin.

3. If adding eyeliner to your existing make up, apply over eye shadow and

before mascara.

4. Tools are the trick of the trade; you can’t get a precise application if you’re

working with splayed brushes, your eyeliner will have feathered edges and

looked crooked and uneven.

5. Try these eyeliner brushes by jane iredale: Angle Liner/Brow, Angle Eyeliner, Eye

Liner/Brow, Angle Definer, Smudge & Detail Brushes.

6. If using an eye pencil to line your eyes, make sure your pencil is sharpened; you

won’t achieve a fine and precise line with a blunt pencil.

7. Assess the shape of your eye and determine what will be the most flattering eye

lining technique for you. Consider thickness of the eyeliner as well as placement.

Will you line the top lid, the bottom lid or both?

8. As a general rule, the thickness and the intensity of the eyeliner should correlate

with the size of your eyelid, the larger the eyelid area, the thicker the line can

afford to be.

9. Consider the texture of the eyeliner. Eyeliner typically comes in a pencil, a liquid

form, a gel base or cream.

10. For a smooth fine line, a gel or cream applied with a brush or liquid liner is best. These

tools allow for precise application and allow you to reach close to the lash line.

11. You can also achieve a liquid liner effect using any colour eye shadow and

angled brush. Add a spritz of D2O Hydration Spray to your brush and create a

liquid liner effect.

12. If you want to achieve a more smoky and diffused look, you can use an eye

shadow, eye pencil or gel liner and smudge with a soft brush before the product

has had time to set. The jane iredale Mini Dome Brush and Chisel Brush help to

achieve this look.

13. When creating the traditional liquid liner look, tilt your head back slightly so you

can see your lid, this will ensure you reach the roots of your lashes.

14. For precise lines, hold your brush or pencil on an angle, this will allow your tool to

hug the skin and glide smoothly without creating bumps. The highest or sharpest

point of the brush will always face the corner of the eye, whether it is the inner or

the outer corner. This allows the brush to hug the natural contour of the eye.

15. Start from the inner corner of your eye and line towards the centre of the lid, then

start again from the outer corner and work inwards, joining in the centre. Be sure

to get as close to the lash line as possible, avoiding any gaps between the liner

and the lash line.

16. To start, keep the line as thin as possible, then build up the thickness if necessary.

The inner corner should be thinner; the thickness can increase towards the outer

corner of the eye.

17. If the outer corners of the eyes slant downwards, simply lift the outer corners in

an upward and outward motion, this will give the eye a more lifted appearance.

18. To create the eyeliner wing or the tail, consider the following to ensure your

eyeliner is symmetrical and is in balance with the eye shape: look at the very outer

corner of the eye and the space where the top and the bottom lashes meet each

other. Draw a line extended slightly out and upwards from that corner, this will be

the guide you will use to create the tail of your eyeliner. Using the very tip of this

tail or flick, bring the eyeliner back in towards the centre of the eyelid. You may

have an empty space, which needs to be filled in with eyeliner, do this, and your

top lash line is complete!

19. Lining the lower lash line can create the illusion of a larger more open eye, or a

wider more elongated eye. Liner on a lower lash line is traditionally softer and

more diffused, as opposed to a definite liquid liner effect.

20. Kohl pencils and eye shadows help create a softer more diffused look as they can

blend easier and don’t ‘set’ as fast as gel and liquid eyeliners.

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.
