Now to one of our favorite bloggers Gentri Lee….
When I was younger all I cared about were the “cool factors” in products. Does it have beautiful packaging? Does it meet all of the latest trend requirements? Is it what I saw on the runways? Well, as my skin starts to age, I find that there are more important questions I should be asking… and I really wish I had asked them sooner… Are the ingredients good for my skin? Does it protect my skin? Is it non-comedogenic? Now that I am “older” and wiser, I realize what really matters in a makeup product, and Jane Iredale is a great example of that.
Jane Iredale, which you can purchase from the Mindful Women Spa, is a wonderful line that will not only keep your skin young and healthy, but do the job it’s meant to do. The makeup goes on light and yet delivers the full coverage that most women are looking for. It’s going to protect your skin while making you look picture perfect.
For this post I wanted a warm, natural, and rosy look. First, I used the Jane Iredale concealer in an inverted triangle pattern to hide those dark circles under my eyes that weren’t there a year ago… sigh, I am not loving this whole aging thing.
Then I used the bronzer to contour around the edges of my face, as well as the sides of my nose and under my cheekbones. You can easily achieve this by creating a “3” pattern starting from the center of your forehead, swooping down the outside of your face, coming in under the cheekbones, then back out and down under the jawline. I always drag it down my neck too, to fade out the contour affect.
Third, I added blush. I started with a powder blush and just swept it from the apple of my cheek and back. Then I added just a dab of a cream blush for a more dewey look.
Next will be your highlight. Follow the pattern you see below, apply the highlight then stipple it into the skin with your ring or middle finger.
Blend it all together with your Kabuki brush.
Lastly, I added a rose gold eyeshadow, two coats of mascara, and finished with the PureMoist Lipstick in ‘Kaylee’.

Stevi Marie Simple Bronzed Makeup Tutorial:
There are so many reasons I can’t break my addiction to Jane Iredale makeup (which I’m completely OK with) but the top reason has to be that it’s so natural and clean!
I have very problematic, acne prone, oily skin that will break out if a clogging foundation even glances my way! Jane’s BB (beauty balm) cream acts as my foundation, concealer AND keeps me clear! The BB cream is a full coverage foundation (which true BB creams rarely are) and is filled with natural ingredients like aloe juice to calm the skin, grapefruit for a fantastic glow, apple extract rich in antioxidants and that’s just the start! It’s healthy for my skin and does NOT clog pores! Now for the tutorial:
Start with a pea size amount of BB cream and dot on forehead, cheeks and chin. Spread evenly around your face like you would a moisturizer.
Have areas that need a little extra to conceal? The BB cream is build-able so it can double as your concealer.
Next- the beautifully pigmented bronzer from Jane. Mineral based and clean as ever- the bronzer does a beautiful job at contouring and adding a warm glow to your complexion. Contour with bronzer as shown in the picture.
If you’re oily like me- you can dust some Jane pressed powder in your t zone to keep the oil and shine at bay.
A little brunette brow gel to keep my crazy eyebrows in place….
A few coats of Black Onyx Masacara-
And finish it off with a little Red Currant lip gloss!
Tada! A quick, easy and natural holiday makeup tutorial for the simple! Try Jane Iredale, I promise you’ll love it!
