Christmas is coming closer, and I haven’t shared a lot of Christmas inspirations on the blog so far. And since it’s only one more week (well, eight days), it’s time to change that. Today I want to share a very simple Christmas Make-Up with you I did in collaboration with Jane Iredale. Some of you might remember, that I attended their event in Berlin in October. I didn’t know the brand before and was quite curious to hear more about the brand and their make-up. You probably also know, that I’m not an expert when it comes to Make-Up. I use it every day, but only a little bit. I don’t use a lot because I like it natural. I don’t feel comfortable when wearing a lot of make-up.
Jane Iredale – The Brand
Before I tell you more about the Christmas make-up look, I would like to tell you a little bit more about the brand and what I like about it. Jane Iredale founded her company in 1994, and she was the first one to supply a line of makeup that had skin care benefits. She used to work in the entertainment industry and knew about the problems models and actresses had due to the make-up they wore. She wanted to make products, which do look not only good but also feel good and are good for the skin.
I tried it myself at the event, and the makeup really feels good on the skin. It’s all about simplicity and naturalness, and that’s what I like best about the Jane Iredale makeup. Even I can use it without being an expert 😉
Simple Christmas Make-Up Look
For my simple Christmas makeup look I used the Pressed Powder (Satin) for the foundation. I didn’t use anything else; I just applied it once, and that’s it. It covers a lot, but at the same time, you don’t feel like you’re wearing makeup. I used the Balance Hydration Spray to fix the foundation. The spray also helps to balance skin’s oil production and pH. It actually feels a little bit strange to spray on your face after applying make-up, but they say it will make the foundation last longer and, of course, I wanted to give it a try. You just have to take care, that you don’t spray too much otherwise it’ll take a while until it’s dry 😉
Last but not least I used the In Touch Highlighter Comfort. I’ve never used a highlighter before because I just didn’t know how to apply it. But using this one by Jane Iredale seemed to be pretty easy. I applied it to the tops of my cheekbones, the bridge of my nose and I used it as an eyeshadow as well. I like the soft glow a lot, it highlights without being garish, don’t you think? Let me know how you like my Christmas makeup look. It’s very simple, but you do not only have to use a lot of makeup to look beautiful. In this case, less is more! Be natural and don’t cover your beauty underneath tons of makeup you actually don’t need!
