Most women stick to one brand and shade for years, without altering their foundations to suit seasonal changes that affect the colour of our skin and condition. Switching up foundations can be overwhelming – not everyone is a budding makeup artist and that’s okay!
We want foundation buying to be an effortless process, something that you are in complete control of and that is why we are taking the time to explore this topic and give you our professional guidance so that you become the expert.
At jane iredale we only use the highest quality ingredients in our products, in particular our mineral foundations, to ensure exceptional performance, coverage and application across our formulas so you can stay looking polished and pretty all day long, and well into the night! Essentially you could wear any of our foundations and be thrilled with the way they look and feel on your skin. But with a little extra insight, there is the perfect formula and finish for your exact skin type, colour and condition.
We offer a range of coverage options from sheer to full that will help you achieve a flawless finish, every time. We love the way our minerals interact with light to create a soft-focus effect and leave your skin looking luminous and feeling silky smooth. We also believe that your foundation should not be causing you any harm, so we’ve eliminated common cosmetic nasties like talc and that is why our foundations provide exceptional coverage, requiring minimal touch-ups and are long lasting, not powdery.
We know that time isn’t always on your side, so if a product can help you save time, it’s a must-have! jane iredale Amazing Base, PurePressed Base, Glow Time and Dream Tint, are multitasking marvels and serve four different purposes in one, providing a foundation, concealer and sunscreen, plus active skin care benefits. By opting for a foundation that does more than just cover, you can ditch those bulky cosmetic cases and say hello to a quick and simple face makeup routine.
All of our products are non-comedogenic, which means they won’t clog pores – we’ve all heard the myth that makeup causes breakouts, but our non-comedogenic formulas work to create a protective barrier on your skin, while still allowing it to breathe and function naturally. Of course, we can’t promise that your makeup will stop blemishes altogether, but we can reassure you that your blemish’s won’t be caused by your makeup.
