Jane Iredale Magic Hour Spring 2014 Makeup Collection
March 17, 2014
Jane Iredale’s Spring 2014 makeup collection was inspired by Jane Iredale’s iconic Moonglow Quad Bronzer. And if you want to celebrate Spring, the soft pastels of this collection will have you feeling feminine, with new products that flatter just about every skin tone.
The new Magic Hour collection includes new Lip Fixations in coral and muave, a In Touch highlighter (perfect for face + lips), a trio of gold eyeshadow, and inky gel liners in black and brown.Here’s a bit more about the products:
New Jelly Jar Gel Eyeliner – Soft and creamy; glides on smoothly for a defined or smudgeable line, then sets to stay just where you want it. Highly pigmented; provides inky color in black or brown. *I tried this on my hand and let me tell you, it stayed put1 Of course you can remove it, but it won’t smudge or run.. This is good news, especially in the warmer months when you don’t want perspiration ruining your eye look. I like the new, angled eye liner brush that makes application of gel or liquid liner easier, too.
Comfort In Touch Highlighter – A sun-kissed coral, cream-to-powder highlighter that gives skin a natural-looking radiance. *no matter what intensity of skin tone you have, this beautiful highlighter will enhance it.
Golden Girl PurePressed Eye Shadow Triple – A harmonious trio of shimmering gold colors that flatter every skin tone. *who doesn’t like a trio? Great for travel, and you can wear it so many ways.
New shades of Lip Fixation – The Magic Hour collection features two new Lip Fixations, a flirtatious coral, Craze and a flattering mauve, Compulsion. *these are gorgeous and they feel amazing. They’re a bit too light for me since I’ve been wearing red most of the time, but on a casual day they’re lovely, and the shimmery clear gloss on these dual-ended products are crazy-good!
The Bottom Line: When I looked at the collection I thought: “These colors are really soft and pretty, perfect for Spring and the daytime — but how will they translate for evening, and for those women who like a deeper, more edgy look? The “how-to” for the edgier, evening look is below. It’s easy!
Using the Eye Contour Brush, press the darkest shade of the Golden Girl PurePressed Eye Shadow Triple into the outer corner of the eye.
Using the Eye Shader Brush, apply the lightest shade of the Golden Girl PurePressed Eye Shadow Triple. Start at the center of the lid and work to the inner corner. Be sure to blend the two shades at the center of the eye.
Using the Angle Eyeliner Brush, apply the Black Jelly Jar Gel Eyeliner by pressing the length of the brush along your upper lash and lower lash line, starting at the outer corner. Go back and sweep product over this line.
Apply a sheer layer of Comfort In Touch Highlighter to the top of the cheekbones. Apply directly from the tube and blend with your finger.
Try Craze Lip Fixation Lip Stain/Gloss for a melon lip, or Compulsion Lip Fixation for a neutral lip. Apply a single dot of the stain to the middle of your upper lip, blend with your finger. Apply another dot to the middle of your bottom lip, blend with your finger. Don’t add gloss to maintain the matte look.
