How To: Pack Makeup Essentials

At jane iredale we understand that traveling light isn’t always easy, whether you’re jet setting across the globe or just enjoying a weekend away. We have made packing a little less complicated and compiled a list of must-have mineral makeup essentials to stow when you are on the go. 


Why squeeze four products into your makeup bag when jane iredale offer some amazing multi-tasking foundations that do the trick in one easy step. Introducing your new travel buddy, Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream – this all-in-one primer, moisturiser, sunscreen and foundation, will keep your complexion looking healthy, totally covered, protected and hydrated with almost no effort at all. Don’t go anywhere without it!


Mascara is the staple in every woman’s makeup regime. The quickest way to freshen up tired eyes, enhance your eye colour and lengthen your lashes; is to simply add mascara.

When traveling, it’s important to prepare for the unexpected, after all you never know where your next adventure may lead you. We recommend jane iredale’s Longest Lash Thickening and Lengthening Mascara… its resistance to smearing and flaking means that if you’re climbing The Great Wall of China or lounging by the hotel pool, your lashes will be luscious, long and oh so glam all day long!


A good quality makeup brush is another travel companion every woman needs in her makeup bag. Cue, jane iredale’s new Refill-Me Refillable Loose Powder Brush. This fancy piece of makeup equipment provides a mess-free and easy way to apply your loose powder while giving you exceptional coverage. It’s easy, just scoop your favourite loose powder shade into the self-contained dispenser and away you go. It’s even got a locking mechanism that prevents spilling making it a perfect tool to have in your hand bag.


You’ll want your lips to be in tip-top shape while you travel. We all agree that dry, cracked lips look ghastly. For a quick and easy lip treatment, be sure to pack the dual-ended Sugar&Butter Lip Exfoliator/Plumper. Keep it close; you can’t over use this handy lippie. One side exfoliates with brown sugar, a quick lick and you are ready to switch to the other side to smother your lips in a hydrating plumper with a hint of colour. Soft lips are yours for the taking.


‘Dot the i’ Makeup Remover Swabs are a lifesaver, particularly after a long day exploring! They’re individually wrapped and are so easy to use. Smudged eyeliner can be cleaned up easily with one of these high-tech buds. The makeup remover is stored in the stem, a simple crack at one end will release the remover straight through to the other end, saturating the cotton tip. Genius. Packaged in pouches of 18, these nifty little guys save you space in your makeup bag, that’s for sure. Who needs a bottle of makeup remover when you can throw in a pack of jane iredale Dot the i Makeup Swabs.
