Mineral Makeup Gone Wild!

One of my favorite makeup “rules” here at jane iredale is that there are no rules. While fresh and pretty is always in season, we do love to play with our makeup!













Saturday night was the annual costume ball fund raiser at IS183, the Art School of the Berkshires. This year, the theme was “Radioactive Bodega” and the costumes were wild! Our own Brand Creative Designer, Courtney has been swooning over spring’s tribal trend and this event was the perfect venue to experiment with it.

The centerpiece of Courtney’s radioactive look was her “yellow raccoon eyes.” She started with the gold end of Double Dazzle Highlighter Pencil on the inner half of the lid including a large dot at the inner corner of the eye. Then she used the copper end on the outer half of the lid, extending well beyond the outer corner of the eye, ending with a large dot out there. She sketched it on straight from the pencil and barely blended, as the line was meant to be quite defined. Next, she applied the Yellow shade from Artists Eyes with the Eye Shader Brush from the inner corner of the eye to the brow, extending out to the temple and sweeping it under the outer third of her eye. She used quite a lot of shadow and tapped it on carefully to create intensity. Then with the same brush (wipe it clean first!) she pressed 24-Karat Gold Dust in Aquamarine onto the upper lids. She wet the Detail Brush and applied Aquamarine as eye liner all around the eyes. Midnight Blue Eye Pencil went in the waterline (inner rims). She finished the eyes with Longest Lash Thickening and Lengthening Mascara in Black Ice. Her secret to setting the look and keeping it bright all night? “Lots and lots of D20 Hydration Spray!”

To finish the look, Courtney used plenty of In Touch Cream Blush in Clarity on the cheeks, and Lip Fixation (we’re all obsessed) in Desire on the lips. Although you can’t see it in the picture, she also has Grey Silk Eye Gloss on her ears for added intrigue.

While this look isn’t exactly office-appropriate, even for us, it’s so much fun to take a walk on the wild side.



  1. P.S. I was inspired by this runway-ready look to create an office appropriate version to celebrate the first hints of spring. I used Glimmer Gold PurePressed Eye Shadow from lashes to above the crease, and lined my eyes with the teal shade from Jewel Box Cream To Powder Eyeliner. I topped that with a bit of Aquamarine 24-Karat Gold Dust and finished with Black Ice Longest Lash. It was bright, uplifting and totally fine for the office. Plus I got tons of compliments 😉

  2. I was so disappointed when I received my first Triple Eyeshadow.I dropped it in the floor and it shattered. So,I turned it over to empty into the commode,the loose eyeshadow and the whole inside case fell into the water. I loved the color but not sure I would order again.
