Jane arrived in NY and started her career in the entertainment industry. Her career as a casting director and producer quickly turned into a passion for skincare. After seeing the detrimental effects stage makeup had on actors she knew she a change need to be made. She thought, “Why isn’t there makeup that’s good for the skin?”
So in 1994, the jane iredale brand began with one product, Amazing Base (still a star in the line). It was immediately embraced by dermatologists and plastic surgeons because of its ability to cover, soothe and protect. Patients loved it because it didn’t feel like makeup; it just resulted in beautiful, flawless skin. As an added bonus, the quality of their complexions got better and better. From there the brand was born.
The brand now reaches women of all ages and nationalities. Embedded in the DNA is the belief that makeup is at its best when it doesn’t try to make a woman conform to the latest fashion trends, but embraces her natural beauty and allows her personality to shine.

Luckily I had the opportunity to partner with Jane Iredale at Neiman Marcus. My love for natural beauty that is good for the skin is endless. It is actually one of the foundations for the blog. Along with sharing Jane’s passion for clean beauty we also share that women should not only look good but feel good. So thank you to Neiman’s and Jane for allowing me to show my readers the beautiful world of Jane Iredale.
I had the pleasure of working with Jane Iredale. Here is what she had to say about my look, “I created a gorgeous, natural spring look on Kate with glowy skin, pops of pink on the cheeks and lips, and brown dimension on the eyes. Follow my step by step guide below to re-create on your own!”
1 – First, I prepped Kate’s skin for makeup with our easy, fast BeautyPrep skincare trio – A micellar water cleanser, lemongrass toner and rose-infused moisturizer. (These skincare essentials also come in minis for trial or travel!)
2 – I then primed the skin with Smooth Affair Facial Primer and Brightener, which I applied with the Foundation Brush. This primer offers makeup and skincare benefits in one – It prepares the skin so makeup goes on easier and lasts longer, and also helps minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines to bring out natural radiance.
7 – The Eye Sheres are beautiful on their own! But to create further dimension, I layered in with our Naturally Matte Eyeshadow Kit. I tapped the lightest shade, Buttercream, under the brow, and added Eggplant into the crease and blended well. Finally, I used Fudge, the darkest brown shade, along the lash line and extended a little to the outer corner of the eyes. At every step, remember to blend!
