Step By Step
Step By Step
When we feel our absolute worst it is most important to take the extra effort in our grooming. Why not when choosing your make-up item, choose well instead of blindly or randomly? Time is my love language, I wish to always use it well – and maybe you do too. That being said, to begin we will get you familiar with what’s what and then venture into then the most important items to pay attention to. This is the recommended order to do your makeup routine:
- Prime face paying special attention to under your eyes. By doing this step first, your primer will be fully absorbed by the time you get to your concealer.
- Do your brows. Fill in any gaps and don’t forget your brows are sisters, not twins. See below for more details.
- Prime your eye area. Liberally work in your primer on your eye area from lids to brow to prepare for your eye shadow. If you want smudge-proof all-day wear do not skip this step!
- Apply eye shadow. Choosing the right eye look will pull your whole routine together in the end. Mimi, our celeb makeup artist, has narrowed down for us two fool-proof applications one for the everyday diva or a sultry smokey look. All that is needed is a light, medium and dark color. You can literally use every eyeshadow in your bag.
- Apply under-eye concealer and Color correct any darkness on the inner corner and under-eye area you may have. The only bags we like are shopping bags and handbags.
- Prime your lashes. This step is super-crucial to do before your mascara and doubles as a treatment for stronger/longer lashes over time.
- Apply mascara. Elongating and curling your lashes can be a game-changer for your makeup look.
- Apply eye-liner. Winged or un-winged your liner can bring a dramatic flair to your look.

As we well know, our eyebrows are an important part of our expression and communication, as they allow us to show our emotions. They bring dramatic attention to your eyes, nose, lips, chin, and forehead whether they are perfectly shaped or not.

It takes more than maintaining a good skin care routine can help prevent unwanted bags. We have tips to help you cover up your dark spots and wrinkles through concealing. Concealer is the most effective tool for hiding dark under-eye circles and Jane Iredale carries many products to help this process.
- Yellow conceals redness and Peach hides blue, purple or grey.
- Use a color corrector on inner corner, blend with a foundation brush
- Dab concealer over under-eye circles, blend down to crease of nose to outer corner of the eye
- Blot your concealer to prevent caking and creasing.
- Dot on forehead, between nose, bow of lip and on the chin to highlight the oval of the face.
Jane Iredale Circle/ Delete Concealer – “Conceals and diminishes the appearance of dark under-eye circles while softening the appearance of fine lines around eyes. The two colors can be blended in order to achieve the exact shade required.”
Jane Iredale Active Light Under-eye Concealer – “An under-eye concealer and facial highlighter that refracts light for a soft-focus finish while providing sheer to medium coverage for under-eye shadows. It conceals while it brightens.”
Jane Iredale Enlighten Concealer – “The ultimate concealer for very dark under eye circles, hyperpigmentation or bruising.” De-puffs and corrects wrinkles
Lash products are a quick-and-easy way to amplify your eyes and can make you look like you have it together (even if you really don’t). Here are our suggestions to maintain the flirtiest part of your look.
Mascara Technique Pro-Tip:
- Use the tip of the brush like a windshield wiper to get product on
- Swipe across the top for a coating on top
- Go back up underneath starting at the base and move side to side as you go up the lash
- Concentrate on the outer lash give the ends some extra love and pull them out
Longest Lash Thickening and Lengthening Mascara – “For those who want it all: well‐defined, longer looking lashes and buildable volume!”
PureLash® Lengthening Mascara – “Get natural-looking, extra-long lashes that are thick and feathery. Our proprietary formula conditions and strengthens while the dual-edged brush makes it easy to maximize lashes top and bottom.”
PureLash® Mascara – “For those with sensitive eyes who still want luscious lashes.”
PureLash® Lash Extender & Conditioner – “A single coat of this conditioner before applying mascara will help strengthen, lengthen and thicken your lashes, making the mascara twice as effective.” Pro-Tip: You can also use this product to nurish your brows and hold them in place!
We absolutely love multitasking, but if you’re going to do something why not really make it count. This is my take when it comes to buying and applying makeup. When choosing an under-eye concealer, shadow primer, lash primer, or mascara why not correct instead of merely covering? This is actually a common ribbon that runs through the Jane Iredale concept overall.
