WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT THE JANE IREDALE MAKEUP RANGE?
The Jane Iredale makeup range, first introduced in 1994, was formulated to be an extension of skin care. Jane Iredale worked as a casting director and producer before launching the range. She saw a need for makeup that would offer both colour enhancement and benefits to the skin, one that would mask imperfections without causing further break-outs.
One of the key differences with the Jane Iredale range is that it is mineral-based. These minerals are inert ingredients with a lightweight texture, and they are pure pigment – meaning a little goes a long way.
Not only that, but the range also leaves out a host of undesirable additivies. The entire range is paragon free, and free from synthetic dyes and fragrances, which can irritate the skin. It also eschews fillers like talc and nylon, which can constitute up to 80% of standard makeup products.
Each of the products is dermatologist tested, allergy tested, clinically tested and hypoallergenic.
The range is recommended by many plastic surgeons, dermatologists and skin care professionals – and apparently Helen Mirren is a fan too!
WHY SHOULD I USE THE JANE IREDALE RANGE?
It is the only product Dr Mayoni happily recommends to people post-treatment. Many clients ask if they can use makeup straight away, which is understandable if you want to cover redness or breakouts. But most standard makeup will suffocate the skin, and slow down the healing process. The Jane Iredale range is different because it allows the skin to go on breathing and repairing normally.
Each product contains natural ingredients to care for the skin – conditioning, moisturising and protecting it.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The makeup is effective for two main reasons:
- The minerals interact with light in a different way to standard makeup. They allow some light to pass through and reflect back, revealing the colour of the skin beneath – meaning you get a great colour-match. They also reflect and refract some of the light giving a kind of “soft-focus” effect – making the skin appear luminous and healthy.
- The makeup doesn’t block pores. There is a scientific word for this – non-comedogenic – but essentially it means that the make-up allows your skin to breathe and function normally while you are wearing it.
WHAT PRODUCTS ARE AVAILABLE IN THE RANGE?
The range includes numerous shades of makeup bases, primers and concealers, lip colours, plumpers and glosses, lip and eye pencils, eye shadows, mascaras, blushers… everything you would expect really!
One of our favourite products in the range is the makeup base. It has a lovely “barely-there” feel, and is light-reflective meaning it obscures wrinkles and fine lines, and also gives great coverage for even the most blemished complexions. It acts as a four-in-one product – concealer, foundation, powder and sunscreen – designed to be used every day. It works with all skin tones, and is also water-resistant – whilst allowing the skin to breathe and be healthy.
