A recipe for glowing skin…

Y’all know I love Jane Iredale by now (especially since it’s gluten free and completely non-toxic)… So, I’m gonna share with you my favorite basic skin products and how I use them for summer. This is the order in which I build them… (Link to all the products right here)

1- Since it’s summer and I don’t need super duper heavy converage, but I mean, I still need good coverage y’all… I like to use the Jane Iredale Liquid Minerals. Best part, you don’t have to use a moisturizer under it if you don’t have time.

  • A serum with pigment that provides sheer to medium coverage.
  • Provides hydration, diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, minimizes the appearance pores, evens out skin tone and adheres so well, there is minimal transference.
  • Liquid Minerals has no rated SPF.
  • The beads or spheres visible in the airless pump are actually liposomes encapsulating liposomes.
  • State-of-the-art technology prevents active ingredients from degrading and allows actives to time release into the skin.

2- Concealer on blemishes as needed.

  • A highly pigmented concealer that contains beneficial botanicals and antioxidants that soothe and minimize the appearance of redness.
  • Gentle enough to be used as often as needed.
  • Staying power reduces the need for touch-ups.
  • Creamy formula layers easily for customizable coverage.
  • A hygienic patented metal tip stays cool even during product application.

3- For any shine I use the PurePressed Base. (This can also replace number one if you need less coverage. Just grab a flocked sponge and apply slightly dampened).

  • A pressed mineral foundation that is slightly more sheer and matte than the loose powders.
  • Made from micronized minerals, oil free and weightless.
  • An SPF foundation, powder and concealer with broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sun protection. Either SPF 20 or SPF 15 depending on shade.*
  • Water resistant to 40 minutes.
  • Contains antioxidants such as Pine Bark Extract and Pomegranate Extract (a potent antioxidant that helps fight free radical production caused by sun exposure).

4- MOONGLOW! I am currently out of this and I am going crazy over it! I use on the sides of my forehead, sides of my nose, below cheekbones, along jawline. This stuff if my absolute fave y’all! Gives you the best summery glow ever! (Think J.Lo guys, for pale girls-hahaha)

Jane Iredale Liquid Minerals & Smoky Eye Kit

Jane Iredale Liquid Minerals  
I love Jane Iredale, it is what they sell and recommend at my dermatologist’s office for a reason. It may not be a cheap drug store buy, but you get what you pay for on this one. Also, you can buy on Overstock and/or Amazon sometimes for cheaper pricing. I have been using the Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Base &/or the Loose Minerals for a few years now, and I absolute LOVE them! So I was really excited to try out the liquid minerals. When you first look at it it looks like it would never really provide enough coverage in all that clear liquid with random beads but it DOES. Plus, there is a built in serum in that helps with aging! This mineral cosmetics foundation is great for skin prone to rosacea, acne or sensitivity. Its lightweight formula won’t clog your pores or irritate your skin. The sheer, liquid texture creates a smooth, dewy finish. Hyaluronic acid in this makeup binds water to the skin to prevent moisture loss. Vitamin C provides antioxidant protection against environmental damage. This formula also contains coenzyme Q10 to help diminish the signs of aging. The beads that are visible inside the airless pump are liposomes in a soothing formula of aloe vera gel and glycerin. This innovative technology prevents the active ingredients from breaking down thanks to its time-released delivery system. Jane Iredale Liquid Mineral is paraben-free, gluten-free, vegan and non-comedogenic. You should really try it out, it is heavy enough but not too heavy (not cakey). I do use a powder over it to matte some oily areas.

Holiday Gift Guide- Part 1…Jane Iredale Smoky Eye Kit

  
Hey everyone here is my first pick for my 2015 Holiday Gift Guide 2015! This is called the Jane Iredale In The Blink of a Smoky Eye- Smoky Eye Kit. It retails for $50 at Jane Iredale’s website. The colors included are called 1-Bone (which is one of the large colors and is very very soft and a tad creamy- it isn’t wet but just so so soft and has the best texture and the applicator is worth $20 itself it is amazingly soft as well and sturdy btw) 2-Pure Gold (pale enough to be a base color as well but has a hint of shimmer to it and is also a great shade to have a large amount of) 3- Dawn (shimmery rose brown but looks more brown on-a great crease color or all over smoky eye color) 4-Rose Gold (love this shimmery color as a crease color for a “day look”) 5- Iris (crease color or eyeline color to smoke out when you’re feeling edgy) 6- Forest (great as well for a crease or eyeliner to smoke out and is a more subtle edgy color) 7- Double Espresso (a perfect matte and cool brown for a crease, eyeliner or all over smoky eye) 8-Ebony (for high drama or wet it for a dramatic eyeliner as well) 
The packaging is great and even magnetizes itself shut, and is sturdy like a book. They perfectly chose the colors to make larger and smaller based on use, which gives you the best bang for your buck. These are all crease resistant shades, which I know I appreciate with my crazy pregnancy hormones haha. This would make a beautiful gift and includes everything you need so no upsells or add-ons like a case or brush etc. I definitely recommend and included a picture of me with Bone as my base mixed with Pure Gold and my crease is Forest mixed with a tiny bit of Double Espresso. (Please excuse the bright orange shirt haha and the black brushes on the side not included or needed
