My mom didn’t let me or my sisters start wearing makeup until we were 16 (back then I thought that was sooo strict but now I appreciate we weren’t allowed to start wearing makeup until we were 16 lol). When we turned 16 she took us to a professional makeup artist to have them do our makeup and application techniques.
I am so grateful for the makeup lesson, because that was when I was introduced to the beauty brand Jane Iredale. We had no idea what clean beauty was back then (and I really only learned about clean beauty last year–so 14 years later!!) but we knew this makeup was made with better ingredients than most makeup. I’ve used Jane Iredale ever since.
My absolute favorite Jane Iredale is the pure-pressed mineral powder. I’ve used it since I was 16 and I’ve never used any other foundation. It is hands-down the best foundation you will find on the market. It also contains NO: phthalates, parabens, synthetic preservatives, synthetic fragrance, talc, nonoparticles or mineral oil.
I’m also soo excited because Nordstrom recently started carrying Jane Iredale!! They also carry my favorite clean mascara from ILIA [it looks like it JUST sold out but will probably be restocked soon] so it makes it easy to shop all my favorites at once. And I just snagged this cute tank [under $40] while getting a refill on make foundation 🙂 I love Nordstrom because of their AMAZING customer service and free shipping.
I’ve listed all my favorite Jane Iredale products [+ other beauty faves also available at Nordstrom] and the shades I use down below!
Beauty Products + the Shades I Use:
Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Mineral Powder: I use Golden Glow when I have no tan and Latte during the summer months/when I have a tan [currently wearing Latte].
Jane Iredale Liquid Minerals Foundation: For fuller coverage and when I have breakouts/uneven skin, I use this liquid foundation as a base before applying the powder foundation.
BeautyBlender Sponge Application: I use this to apply my liquid foundation.
Jane Iredale Handi Brush [this brush is amazing quality and will last YEARS]
Jane Iredale So-Bronze 1 Bronzing Powder: [Shade SB1] I use this year-round in replace of blush
Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade® Waterproof Brow Color: [Shade: Medium Brown-colors run dark]. This pomade makes it so easy to shape your eyebrows. I also love it because it lasts forever making it very low-waste since you use it with a reusable brush [I’ve tried other brow pencils/tools and they get used so quickly!].
