Clean Beauty Make Up Hacks
Our favourite clean beauty makeup hacks will help you get the most out of your beauty products, pep up your complexion on-the-go and make you look like you’ve had the deepest, most restful sleep of your life - even after a sleepless night!
Read on for a few of our very favourite clean beauty hacks below.
1. Customise your foundation:
Some days you want full coverage, some days you want no coverage at all. But what about those days in between?
Rather than purchasing multiple foundations, tinted moisturisers and powders to ensure you have every possible coverage and finish at the ready, create a custom base using only two products – the Jane Iredale Smooth Affair Primer and your base of choice (we love using the Jane Iredale Glow Time BB for this).
Simply mix your primer with your foundation until the product is as sheer as you’d like it to create a custom coverage tinted moisturiser. The more primer, the sheerer the base, or use no primer at all for a full coverage finish.
2. A makeup touch-up without any makeup
If you find that your makeup is looking a little dull at the end of a long day, simply keep a Jane Iredale Hydration Spray in the fridge. A spritz of cool POMMISST, D2O, Balance or Lemongrass Love will cool you down on a warm day (or a cool day spent parked beneath a heater) as well as making your foundation look fresher, your skin dewier and your cheek colour more vibrant! A quick spritz really can breathe new life into your makeup.
3. Cheat your way to a full night’s sleep
If you got tired looking eyes after a restless night, instantly brighten your eye area with a white or pearlescent eye shadow – like the Jane Iredale PurePressed Eye Shadow in Oyster. A tried and tested makeup artist trick, softly applying a light reflecting shade to the inner corners of the eyes, the lower lash line and the brow bone will brighten and widen the eye area, making you appear wide awake and well rested.
The eyeshadows can be used wet or dry and are safe and gentle for sensitive eyes. The highly pigmented colours are crease resistant and long lasting. Can also be used to fill in brows, colour for the cheeks or as a stain on the lips.
4. Create your own intense eye shadow shade
You can create your own intensely pigmented shades by mixing your favourite powder eye shadow with a spritz of your favourite Jane Iredale Hydration Spray. Your eye shadow will look richly pigmented and multidimensional, plus the addition of hydration spray will keep your look in place for longer.
5. Make your products work overnight
We love a natural makeup product that can work while you sleep. For longer and stronger eyelashes and brows, apply the PureLash Lash Extender and Conditioner as an overnight brow and lash treatment.
Jane Iredale PureLash Extender & Conditioner acts as a mascara primer. Applied before mascara, the conditioner enhances thickness and length of the lashes allowing you to use less mascara.
Can be used on the eyebrows and lashes at nighttime to condition the hairs.
6. Top up your SPF without smudging your makeup
The easiest way to give your skin a little extra protection is to lightly dust a mineral powder containing broad spectrum SPF of 15 or higher over your makeup during the day. Try our PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation applied with The Handi Brush – the perfect combo for on-the-go applications, touch ups and the perfect size for your handbag!
