What Makeup to bring on SUN Holidays?

Jane Iredale Mineral Makeup Retailer Sligo

I have travelled abroad a few times a year for sun since I was 18 and have found that using “high coverage” makeup always looks false and like makeup in the sunshine. What you need is a makeup that “looks like skin” in the sun. Only better skin than you wake up with. Finding one that sticks and lasts and doesn’t slide off your skin, because it is so light in coverage has been a challenge to say the least until now. Until I discovered the Jane Iredale Makeup Line. A combination of The Absence Primer with Liquid

Mineral Makeup

Minerals foundation” from Jane Iredale. Alone the foundation doenst work on my skin but with the primer it’s looks natural, flawless and like skin in the sun. The primer is white and so thick but rubs so well into the skin you only need a tiny amount. It is colourless when on and provides the most amazing clear base. All flaws covered. Then rub in with your

Mineral Hydration Spray

clean fingers a pump or 2 of liquid minerals foundation and finish with the pressed powder. I also love their Hydration Spray in

“Pommist” to spritz my face during the day when I’m feeling hot and bothered. As the day progresses i just touch up using Jane Iredele “pressed powder” to keep the SPF sun protection factor coverage. The Jane Iredele

Minerals foundation powder

“pressed powders” have SPF 20 in them. This SPF is certified by the Skin Cancer Foundation. These powders are 100% minerals meaning they contain no other agent that could expire or that you can infect them with a dirty makeup brush on holidays. They also contain zinc which is anti inflammatory so this is the best finishing powder to have in your handbag for holidays to avoid holiday related breakouts. Just a note these powders are not powders per say the contain zero talc or any drying fillers. They give a natural no powder look finish they just take the edge of the shine post foundation but this face lasts soo good and so long in the sun. Its my new BFF. Best foundation face and Best Friend Forever! And with a great blowdry

from the Spa in the hotel and some flattering evening Morocco sun I was ready for a photo of it all. I retail all the above products in salon in Sligo. You are welcome to come and try all shades and finishes and take home samples,with no obligation to purchase.
