Under cover…

I am often asked about my favourite jane iredale products, which can be a very difficult question to answer.
I think that many of you that are reading this would agree, jane iredale – The Skin Care Makeup offers an amazing array of innovations to celebrate our beauty and once you have had the “power of the experience” you never look back… Our “powers of the experience” are uniquely our own since we all celebrate our beauty differently.

On numerous occasions recently I’ve been asked what my concealer of choice happens to be and without hesitation I reply Glow Time. I use Glow Time very day under my eyes, over and around my nose and on any other challenges that can pop-up unexpectedly. I travel a lot, it’s my savior.

I love it because of the texture, the skin care benefits and the SPF 25. I love that once I have applied it, it stays put, all day without creasing, traveling or fading. I love that I have an SPF around my eyes protecting my delicate skin and helping to prevent photoaging. Glow Time is a full coverage Mineral BB Cream designed to camouflage a bevy of skin related challenges.

What can I say? It’s all in the “power of the experience” so go forth and have yours.

Cheers!

Crazy for Craze!

Ok, so I am crazy about Craze Lip Fixation from the new spring collection Magic Hour. Craze delivers the quintessential lip look for Spring 2014. So if coral is calling out to you proceed directly to Craze from jane iredale – The Skin Care Makeup. 

LipFix Craze_s_LR

Lip Fixation offers double-beauty duty with two products in one. Each Lip Fixation boasts a lip stain and lip gloss in complementary colours. For the best results please apply the stain to completely dry lips, free from any previous lip products or moisture. Lip Fixation allows for comfortable, buildable coverage without feathering or drying. Once the stain is dry (matte looking) follow with the gloss for a brilliant shine, voilà!

Tip: Apply a very delicate amount of Craze stain to your cheeks followed by a wash of Comfort In Touch Highlighter, simply brilliant…

Cheers!

The Magic Touch

Days like today make it difficult to believe that spring is still 20 days away.
With a cloudless sky above, the sun shining bright, a temperature of nine degrees Celsius and Crocuses nipping at my ankles, makes me pause and give thanks. Thanks for being able to live in such splendorous beauty. British Columbia is truly a jewel in the Canadian crown.
Its weather like this that makes it easier to change my mind set as I prepare for the Canadian launch of the anticipated Magic Hour. Magic Hour is the new seven-piece Spring Collection from  jane iredale-The Skin Care Makeup which draws its inspiration from Moonglow, the Iconic Quad Bronzer that launched in 2005.

Discover our Difference!

There is really no better way to say it. This rang true for me 13 years ago when I had the “power of the experience” and discovered the difference, the jane iredale difference.  It changed my life and my perception of beauty.

For the first time in my career I asked myself “why”… why use chemical laden makeup, why promote chemical laden makeup, why are so many chemicals necessary to create makeup?

Here was a brand before me that left me wanting for nothing. So many beautiful colours, such vivid pigments, such silken textures; in that moment I was mineralized by jane iredale – The Skin Care Makeup. I felt like a kid in a candy store, a health food candy store I might add. Why? Well, here was a brand that was created without the use of chemicals or synthetics of any kind, proving that it can and could be done. It was an Aha moment.

Tools of the trade; try the Deluxe or Large Shader Brush to apply your highlight and base shades. The Crease Brush to apply your contour or eye defining shades. Use the Angle Liner/Brow Brush wet when you want to convert a dry eye shadow into a liquid liner or use the Mini-Dome Brush (dry) when you want a soft smoky, smouldering liner effect.
