Jane Iredale Starter Kit, The Skincare Makeup

I’m writing this post over my morning cup of coffee, snuggled up on the couch with a blanket. I feel like you guys should be sitting across from me, coffee cups in hand, and we should be chatting about our new favorite makeup and boys and the fact that the New York weather has been absolutely freezing. As it is, we should definitely do this virtually. So grab a cup of coffee, some fuzzy socks, settle in and I’ll tell you about my newest makeup obsession.

Jane Iredale is all about makeup that looks good, feels good and is good for your skin. The mineral powders are foundations, powders, concealers and sunscreens all in one. Jane has a firm belief that makeup should enhance your beauty, not conceal it. And she’s all about building confidence with products that are great for your skin. 

The new starter kit highlights the best of Jane Iredale with products that give you flawless results. “I’ve always said, makeup should be a part of the solution rather than a part of the problem,” Jane says, “Effortless makeup that actually improves the condition of her skin will boost her confidence. She will be amazed by how beautiful her skin can be.” I’ve been using this line for a little while now and, well, I’m kind of amazed by how beautiful my skin can be. 

It’s a four-step process that includes:

·        Smooth Affair™ Facial Primer & Brightener; a luminizing, award-winning primer that nourishes and prepares the skin. It brightens, hydrates and helps makeup go on easily and last longer.

·         Amazing Base® SPF 20 Loose Mineral Powder; the original foundation, powder, concealer and sunscreen in one. It provides exceptional coverage with a luminous finish, and is ideal for covering brown spots, redness, eczema, rosacea and acne. Bears The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation as an effective UV sunscreen.

·         PurePressed® Base SPF 20 Mineral Foundation; the first pressed mineral foundation, powder, concealer and sunscreen in one. It provides long-lasting, highly pigmented coverage with a semi-matte finish. Bears The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation as an effective UV sunscreen.

·         POMMIST™ Hydration Spray; a hydrating facial spritz with the added benefit of pomegranate extract. It conditions and protects the skin and may be used to set a mineral base and plump the skin. Natural and Organic Cosmetic certified by ECOCERT 

There’s something simple about these products that make them easy to use. I’m usually racing to get to playing with eye shadow or apply my mascara, but this line puts the fun back into face makeup. The primer hydrates as it prepares your skin, while the foundation and powder provide real coverage. Finish off with a refreshing spritz of the hydration spray and you’re all set. 

When I first starting using this line I was impressed by the amount of coverage it provided. After a few days I started to notice a visible improvement in my skin even when I wasn’t wearing makeup. I don’t know about you, but when I’m struggling with a breakout I’m torn between wanting to let my skin breathe and wanting to conceal the worst of it with too many products. This new line helps me do both. 

Lastly, is a photo-ready finish. Concerned with posterity and my lack of photo-taking in the past, I’ve recently been snapping away at every opportunity. This four-step process leaves me ready for almost any angle :) That’s why it’s a Pre-Dame makeup artist favorite, too! It’s perfect for on set and off.
