Natural Beauty

Fresh-faced and dewy is a look I just love. There’s nothing worse than cakey, fake-looking makeup, but a great makeup look is easier said than done. Magazines are filled with how-to tutorials and gorgeous A-list looks, but how can we get this at home, and keep our skin healthy at the same time?

After years of wearing makeup and putting on lotions and perfumes, one day I thought, “How healthy are all these products for my skin?” I’ve slowly started to incorporate more natural cosmetic products into my routine, for an all-around more natural, beautiful look.

That’s why I was so excited to discover Jane Iredale makeup products. A friend introduced me to “Moonglow” a few years ago and I’ve been hooked ever since. This is one of many favorite products by the collection that adds the perfect dewy glow to any woman’s skin. I wear it alone or add it as a finish to my bronzer and I’m set for the rest of the day.

All Jane Iredale makeup products are non-comedogenic, meaning that the ingredients don’t block your pores, oils are used only when needed, and UVB and UVA sun protection is incorporated into every product. Now that’s a beautiful combination.

Jane Iredale products are available at Staff of Life, L'Atelier and Chaminade Spa, all in Santa Cruz.
