Jane Iredale: Introducing the Spring 2017 Collection

Spring is coming, and we can’t wait! The air is getting warmer in the Berkshires (at least, on some days), and days are getting longer. Before we know it, beautiful tulips will pop up all around the jane iredale headquarters building. Though the official first day of spring is not until March 20th, we’re celebrating the freshest of seasons a little early. On March 13th, we introduce the new spring makeup collection.

Introducing New Spring Makeup

We know you get as excited about new products as we do, so here is a sneak peak of the Spring Color collection. It brings the peachy, rosy radiance of the season to some perennial favorites. Get ready because the radiant look of bare skin just got better!

Susan and Lisa PureMoist Lipstick

The vivid pigments in Susan and Lisa PureMoist Lipstick blend with nourishing natural oils and fruit extracts for petal-soft lips that feel, look and taste amazing. (That’s right, Susan has returned!)

Pro Tip: Sheer out your favorite PureMoist Lipstick shade by lightly applying LipDrink SPF 15 Lip Balm as a base. It will also give your lips water-resistant sun protection for up to 40 minutes!

Peaches & Cream Bronzer

Want a sunny glow? Look no further than Peaches & Cream Bronzer. It contains four hues that can be mixed and matched for an all-over sun-kissed look.

Pro Tip: Use a White Fan Brush to apply the lighter two shades to your cheek bones for a luminous glow.

Soft Kiss & Pink Quartz PurePressed Eye Shadow Triple

From elegant to edgy, these silky, richly-pigmented, long-lasting and easily blended PurePressed Eye Shadow Triples can create any look. Available in two new shades: Soft Kiss (left) and Pink Quartz (right).

Pro Tip: Wet your brush with D2O Hydration Spray before picking up the eye shadow color for a more dramatic eye makeup look.

Candid In Touch Blush

Candid, our new In Touch Cream Blush shadeis the perfect solution if you want a soft, dewy and completely natural looking radiance.

6 On-the-Go Makeup Essentials

6onthegomakeup

If you’re anything like us, you would need rolling luggage to carry all of your makeup with you on-the-go. Instead of playing the constant traveler, try paring your makeup bag down to these six essential items:

Powder Foundation + Travel Brush: Powder foundation (like PurePressed Base or Amazing Base) is extremely versatile and can be used as a foundation, concealer or even finishing powder. Ours even contain SPF to protect from the sun. Keep the inside of your bag clean by bringing a travel foundation brush that’s either retractable or can be filled with the loose powder.

Cream Blush: A cream blush stick makes reapplication easy. You can apply it with your finger, so there’s no need for a blush brush!

One or Two Lip Products: We know how easy it is to carry a collection of lip products for every occasion, but that can weigh down your bag. Lighten the load by only bringing the lipstick or lip gloss used in your makeup look that day, and swap out the products each day or so.

Liquid Eye Shadow: If you usually touch up your eye shadow midday, toss a creamy, liquid eye shadow in your bag. Use the built-in brush for easy application and to cut down on the number of brushes you have to carry.

Brown Eyeliner: A brown eye pencil can be used in a number of different ways. Apply it over your current eyeliner (black or brown) to touch up your look after a long day work or use it as an eyebrow pencil to define your brows before you go out.

Want to know what Jane carries in her tote? Here are the products she always has in her bag during the summer:

Refill-Me Refillable Loose Powder Brush filled with Amazing Matte Loose Finish Powder
Clarity In Touch Cream Blush
Champagne Eye Shere Liquid Eye Shadow
Nectar PureGloss Lip Gloss
Terra Cotta Lip Pencil

5 Products for Beach-ready Makeup

summermakeup
When you’re heading to the shore, it’s important to have makeup that is versatile and fits in beach bag. You want to look natural, as if you aren’t wearing any makeup, but still feel confident that you look your best. For an effortless no makeup, makeup look, all you need is five products, a couple of brushes/tools and your fingers:

Peaches-Cream-1-232x300
Mineral Foundation
(Alternate Uses: Concealer and SPF)
Great mineral foundations, like our PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation, can be used as both a foundation and a concealer. It also contains broad spectrum SPF to protect you from harmful UV rays and is water resistant for up to 40 minutes!

Peach Eye Shadow & Cream Eye Shadow
(Alternate Uses: Highlighter, Blush and Lip Color)
Select a peach and a cream eye shadow with a little shimmer (we suggest our PurePressed Eye Shadow in Peach Sherbet and Cream). You can use the two colors in multiple ways; in addition to adding color to your eye lids, they quadruple as a highlighter, blush and lip color!.

Pencil Eyeliner
(Alternate Use: Brow Pencil)
A natural brown eyeliner, like our Basic Brown Eye Pencil, is great for lining your eyes, but if you’re a brunette, you could also get away with using it as an eyebrow pencil. If you have lighter hair, we recommend using a lighter colored eyeliner, like taupe.

 Lip Balm
(Alternate Use: SPF)
Lip Balm is the best finishing touch to any look. It moisturizes your lips for a supple pout, and if you use our LipDrink Lip Balm with SPF 15, you also get the added bonus of sun protection!

Follow the below steps to learn how to get the perfect, natural beach makeup look in 10 easy steps:

Peaches-Cream-2-242x300

  1. First, use your Retractable Handi Brush to apply your foundation.
  2. Then, use a Flocked Sponge to layer foundation over any areas that may need a little extra concealing.
  3. Using your ring finger apply the cream eye shadow to the lid of your eye and as a highlighter on your brow bone.
  4. Next, use your finger again to apply the peach shade to the outer corners of your eyes and into the crease.
  5. Starting from the inner corner of your eye and working your way out to a slight wing, line your upper lash line with your Brown Eye Pencil.
  6. Also, use the eye pencil to define your brows by filling in your eyebrows using small, hair-like strokes.
  7. With your index and middle finger, lightly swipe the cream eye shadow on your cheek bone as a highlighter.
  8. Then, with the same two fingers, apply the peach shade to the apples of your cheek with light strokes.
  9. Dab the peach shade onto your lips using your middle finger for a soft pop of color.
  10. Finish your look with a swipe of lip balm on your lips.
