Created by former US casting director, the jane iredale mineral make-up brand was developed as a make-up that was good for the skin, after seeing actresses and models struggling with the ill-effects of the many kinds of make-up they wore. Jane’s experience in working with women whose careers depended on a clear complexion allowed her to see how skin disorders and sensitivities not only threatened careers, but also destroyed self-confidence. That’s why her mineral powders are a foundation, powder, concealer and sunscreen all in one, and why every product in the line is multi-functional. Her goal is to make products that look good, feel good and are good for the skin. Products must be easy to apply, as well, so that a woman can be her best in the shortest amount of time.
