Ever thought about what you’re actually putting on your face? And no, I don’t mean those serums, clay masks and moisturisers that give you that treat-yo-self moment. I’m talking about your makeup - that stuff you use on the daily.
While there’s a lot (a lot) of good makeup out there, there is unfortunately, a few bad apples. This is the kind of makeup that gives you a gorgeous, seamless finish that stays put on your face for 12 hours straight, but leaves your skin feeling irritated and red after you take it off. This is thanks to a bunch of nasty ingredients that don’t let your skin breathe - which is a major problem if you have sensitive skin or are acne-prone.
Instead, turn to the wonderful world of mineral makeup - a range of foundations, powders and BB creams that are almost purely made out of, you guessed it, minerals. This makeup not only makes your skin look flawless and gives you that no-make-up look, but it’s actually good for you. Win-win, right?
Well, luckily for you, we’ve just introduced a cult-favourite mineral makeup brand to our range - Jane Iredale. Want to know more and see our top picks? Keep reading.
A quick appreciation of Jane Iredale mineral makeup
Made from only high-quality, good-for-you ingredients, Jane Iredale has been killing the mineral makeup game since the 90’s.
This multitasking mineral makeup is not only free of parabens, talc, phthalates, synthetic fragrances, fillers and GMO ingredients, but it’s cruelty free. It’s also super pigmented, doubles as skin care, and is non-comedogenic - which means it won’t clog your pores.
Designed to give you a healthy, radiant complexion that lasts all day, what’s not to love?
Our 4 top picks
1. For a dewy finish
Offering a sheer to medium coverage, this mineral foundation minimises the appearance of fine lines, pores and evens out your skin tone. It’s packed full of light-reflecting mineral pigments, so it’s going to give your skin a major radiance boost.
While it feels incredibly lightweight on your skin, almost like a serum, it’s working hard behind the scenes to give your skin some much-needed hydration. Hyaluronic acid plumps and boosts your skin’s collagen levels, White Tea improves skin elasticity and Calendula (also known as Marigold), cools and calms everything down.
2. For sheer coverage
If you love a light tint, this is your new go-to. Enriched with hydrating algae extract and brightening pomegranate extract, this tinted moisturiser helps to blur fine lines and pores. It’s available in 3 shades (each with varying undertones) and can be used alone or as a primer under the pressed powder.
An added bonus: it has SPF 15 and offers UV protection.
3. For a matte finish
This mineral powder foundation is going to be your saviour this summer. Featuring micronised minerals, this foundation feels completely weightless on your skin (and also offers the benefits of a broad-spectrum sunscreen!). It’s a foundation, powder and concealer all in one.
Available in 9 different shades and undertones, it’s super gentle on your skin and is perfect for even the most sensitive skin types. With this mineral makeup product, you’ll get a sheer semi-matte finish that lasts all day.
4. For full coverage
Last, but not least, is a full coverage BB cream that will instantly transform your skin. This baby will cover blemishes, minimise the appearance of pores, disguise wrinkles and smooth and brighten your skin. Sounds like a lot, right? It does more.
Packed with skin-loving antioxidants, this mineral makeup will leave your skin feeling radiant, pampered and perfected. You’ll get a flawless finish, SPF 25 protection and the skincare benefits of a moisturiser in just one product. It’s available in 4 shades with varying undertones, so you’ll easily find your perfect colour match.
With a brand as gorgeous as Jane Iredale’s, making the switch to more natural makeup is pretty easy. Plus, when you have makeup that loves your skin as much as you do, you can’t lose.
