Skincare makeup is an excellent natural makeup that benefits your skin by infusing beauty products with minerals and vitamins that improve your skin. Jane Iredale’s Mineral Makeup and skincare line allow you to heighten your natural beauty without worrying about any side effects from wearing makeup. This luxury makeup brand is free of parabens, harsh chemicals and fragrances making it ideal for anyone with sensitive skin or acne.
How do I know what makeup to use?
Skincare makeup is excellent at targeting your specific skincare concerns while enhancing your natural beauty. A good place to start when deciding what makeup products to use is with your skin type: dry, oily, combination or mature. If you have dry skin you’ll want to avoid packing on heavy powders in order to prevent texture from showing through on your skin makeup. Instead, after using a liquid foundation and a light powder where needed, a setting spray like the D20 Hydration Spray will set your makeup whilst hydrating your face and reducing oil production. If you have oily or combination skin, another product that can help reduce oiliness is the Absence Oil Control Primer which mattifies the skin and is full of powerful antioxidants and hydrating Vitamin E. For mature skin, beauty products that contain Vitamin C like the Active Light Under-Eye Concealer can also help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Once you’ve figured out your skin type, finding products that target your specific concerns will improve the overall look of your makeup and lets you avoid using products that can enhance or aggravate your skincare concerns.
How do I know my skin tone for makeup?
Finding your skin tone, especially when looking at makeup online, can be daunting. First, you should identify the undertones of your skin. If your veins appear green, you have warm undertones, if they’re purple or blue your undertones are cool. A combination of both means your undertones are neutral. It is much easier to identify the correct skin tone for your makeup once you know what your undertones are. Look at the shades that most resemble your skin tone: if you have cool undertones, a shade with more red or pink in it will suit you better. With warm undertones, a shade that is more yellow or gold will suit your skin better. Neutral undertones tend to be less red or yellow, falling between cool and warm tones. With this knowledge at hand, you can use the Jane Iredale Foundation Finder to ensure that you find the perfect match for your skin.
What should my skincare routine be?
In its simplest form, your skincare routine should include a cleanser followed by toner, moisturizer and SPF during the day. It’s best to choose skincare products that suit your skin type. For dry or sensitive skin, a hydrating cleanser such as the Botanical Makeup Remover which contains soothing Aloe Leaf extract and calming Cucumber fruit extract will clean your skin without leaving your face feeling dry. On the other hand, if you have oily skin, a cleanser containing an AHA like glycolic acid will exfoliate your face, clearing away debris and leaving your skin feeling revived.
Toners help hydrate your skin and can target more specific concerns. If you have blackheads, you may want to find a toner with BHA or Salicylic acid which penetrates the pores and clears out dirt, helping prevent and destroy those pesky black spots. If you find you experience a lot of redness in your face, a toner that contains green tea extract or Evening Primrose oil will have a calming effect on your skin and promote an even complexion.
Moisturizer is essential to keep your skin hydrated and reduce oil production, while SPF like the Powder-Me SPF 30 Dry Sunscreen will protect your skin from ageing UVA and UVB rays.
When you find a basic routine that works for you, you can begin to introduce serums to target other concerns. Serums are used after toner, before moisturizer, and usually contain a cocktail of minerals and vitamins that combat various skincare concerns. Some of the most popular serum ingredients at the moment are Hyaluronic acid which plumps and hydrates the skin; Vitamin C which helps brighten skin and prevents fine lines and wrinkles; and Vitamin A that combats acne and fine lines. There are plenty more to choose from when you feel ready to elevate your face care routine, and these ingredients can even be found in Jane Iredale’s skincare makeup like the Circle Delete Concealer which contains both Vitamins A and C to target fine lines and dark circles.
Do I need a primer and moisturizer?
While using a primer is a personal choice, it does wonders for your makeup routine. Primer gives you a poreless finish, hide wrinkles and ensure that your makeup stays in place all day. In addition to its beauty care benefits, Jane Iredale’s skincare makeup primers soothe and hydrate, giving you a natural makeup glow. I recommend the Smooth Affair Facial Primer and Brightener for blemished or mature skin. This primer is full of revitalising ingredients like Peptides which stimulate collagen production, allowing your skin to heal faster and even reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
While the primer is an optional step to enhance your makeup and improve your skin texture, moisturising is an essential step in your face care routine. Moisturizers prevent water loss in the skin, keeping your face hydrated, making it key every the skincare routine no matter the skin type. Not using a moisturizer can lead to outbreaks due to over-production of oil as well as the disruption of the skin barrier, leading to irritation and dryness.
Finding the right moisturizer can improve your skincare routine. A thick cream moisturizer might be perfect for someone with dehydrated skin or mature skin but cause acne in someone with oilier skin. If you have been put off using a moisturizer because of outbreaks, try changing to a gel formula or moisturizing spray like the Lemongrass Love Hydration Spray which hydrates skin while controlling oil production.
Does Makeup age your skin?
Normally, wearing heavy makeup without following a proper daily skincare routine can irritate your skin as the build-up of oils can cause acne, and certain products can dry out your skin causing the visibility of fine lines. Skincare makeup brand Jane Iredale have resolved the damaging effects of makeup products. Skincare makeup is makeup-free of parabens, fragrances and chemicals that can irritate your skin. This mineral makeup line contains skincare ingredients that promote healthy skin and counteract any ageing effects of regular makeup. Jane Iredale’s beauty products include components such as hydrating Shea Butter and Vitamin C which encourages collagen production in the skin, counteracting signs of ageing
What’s the difference between vegan makeup and regular makeup?
Vegan makeup doesn’t contain any animal products or by-products, while regular makeup may contain ingredients like lanolin (wool wax), beeswax and other animal products. Vegan makeup is also cruelty-free, meaning makeup brands like Jane Iredale Makeup, which are certified cruelty-free by PETA and Leaping Bunny, don’t test on animals.
What is the best beauty product for very sensitive skin?
For sensitive skin, finding the right products that enhance your beauty without irritating your skin can make you feel much more confident and excited about wearing makeup without the worry of waking up the next day with a skin flare-up.
One of the best beauty products for sensitive skin is the Zap and Hide Blemish Concealer which is highly pigmented to conceal redness and aggravated skin. This product also contains anti-inflammatory green tea extract which soothes skin irritation, and squalane, a powerful natural antioxidant. This concealer is excellent at giving you a flawless finish without worrying about irritation.
Another great product that can help conceal skincare concerns while simultaneously soothing inflamed skin is the Dream Tint Tinted Moisturizer. This lightweight formula contains ingredients such as hydrating Algae extract while anti-inflammatory Shea butter soothes the skin, giving you a radiant even finish to your face makeup. This product also contains SPF which is a must for sensitive skin to protect against harmful UV rays, while white tea and Pomegranate extract, both potent antioxidants, neutralise free radicals that cause blemishes and skin damage.
Which products are best for face makeup?

What makeup is recommended by dermatologists?
Jane Iredale’s skincare makeup is the number one recommended makeup line in the United States by dermatologists and by plastic surgeons, as mineral makeup’s lack of parabens, harsh chemicals and irritating fragrances make Jane Iredale’s skincare makeup a brilliant choice for anyone suffering from acne, rosacea or after cosmetic treatments such as laser treatments.
