You’ve heard of Jane Iredale but did you know the brand only uses the highest-quality minerals available and organic ingredients? I had no idea but now I’m an even bigger fan. While every beauty brand seems to boast this, Iredale was the first to supply the industry with a line of makeup that had skin care benefits.
Jane has always thought of makeup as an essential part of a woman’s sense of well-being and she wanted to make that easy to achieve. That’s why her mineral powders are a foundation, powder, concealer and sunscreen all in one, and why every product in the line is multi-functional. Her goal is to make products that look good, feel good and are good for the skin. Products must be easy to apply, as well, so that a woman can be her best in the shortest amount of time.
With a newly found concern for what’s IN my makeup, I’ve turned to Iredale’s Liquid Minerals A Foundation, Active Light Under-Eye Concealer, and Corrective Colors Concealer. The foundation offers a medium coverage with a light-reflecting formula to keep skin looking moist and light without caking. Since I constantly have dark circles under my eyes (blame my long hours on my computer), the Active Light Under-Eye conceals while it brightens and is light enough that it doesn’t seem into the creases like a traditional concealer. For my dark spots and remaining acne scars, the Corrective Colors Concealer offers four shades to correct my discoloration. With these three products I feel good knowing what I’m actually putting on my skin isn’t full of chemicals. YUCK!
