After wearing make up after a long summer\’s day, sometimes it can look like it\’s running away from your face. I\’m sure it\’s not healthy and I\’m pretty sure you could make small children cry with that “Madame Tussaud\’s, melted, waxfigure look”. Luckily, Jane Iredale has a lightweight, makeup solution that wont budge over a summer\’s day. There\’s Iredale\’s Amazing Base for a dewy, youthful look and PurePressed Base if you\’re after a clean matte finish.
They\’re a four-in-one product that acts as a foundation, powder, concealer and sunscreen, so you can lessen that jungle that I know is in your handbag! It has an SPF of 20 for instant broad-spectrum, chemical-free sun protection, which is long-lasting and water resistant, so you can even wear it to the beach.
What\’s more is that the minerals in the makeup diffuse light so you get a luminous, smooth appearance. Moreover, the minerals undergo a micronisation process, which makes them bind to the skin, so even on hot days they resist running, creasing and smearing until you decide to take it off. Jane Iredale even has a Magic Mitt for that too.
Though you wont need to hurry to take it off, because it\’s packed with ingredients like algae extracts to soothe, pomegranate to fight free radicals and plankton extract to enhance moisture retention.
For something extra special, try adding Iredale\’s rich quad of shades to your eyes, cheeks and lips for an all-over glow. Choose from SunBeam or MoonGlow. I\’m leaning towards the SunBeam because it\’s made from real 24-carat gold! Maybe I can colour coordinate my face with my jewellery!
