Petal Pretty Makeup Look

Spring is the perfect time to step away from the smokey eyes and play with softer, sweeter makeup. Here is a delicate, rosy look to make you feel fresh and happy.

Let’s begin with blush so the rest of the makeup stays in balance and we don’t end up looking clownish:

  1. Apply plenty of PurePressed Blush in a soft pink shade like Barely Rose. Smile to make the apples of the cheeks pop out. Try the Dome Brush with this to get plenty of color on the cheek, swirling it around the apple and blending to soften the edges. Avoid applying it too high on the cheeks, as this can make your eyes look red and tired.
  2. Use the White Fan Brush to apply Rose Gold 24-Karat Gold Dust on the tops of cheeks: tap a bit of the 24-Karat Gold Dust into the lid of the jar, pinch the brush together between your fingers and dip the ends into the gold dust. Let go of the bristles, tap off excess back into the lid, and sweep it across the tops of your cheeks. If you like, repeat for a more shimmery look.
  3. Use your ring finger to pat Petal Lid Primer onto the entire eyelid area, right up to the brow bone. Use enough so you see a subtle glow, but not so much that it creases.
  4. Apply one of the brighter shades of Mystikol to line the eyes, top and bottom; try Aquamarine or Amethyst, or Citrine if you want something more neutral. This is a delicate look, not smokey, so use the pointy tip to get a nice thin line. Be sure to work it into the lash line. A trick for lining the top lashes is to lean your head back slightly and look down your nose into the mirror. Keep your eyes open as you work the color into your lash line. Your lashes will wiggle a bit when you’re doing it right. To apply liner close to the bottom lashes, tilt your chin down, then look up at the mirror.
  5. For lush lashes, apply PureLash Lash Extender & Conditioner to top and bottom lashes, and then top with several coats of Longest Lash Thickening and Lengthening Mascara in your favorite shade.
  6. Pretty lips start with a layer of LipDrink Lip Balm. Next, run your finger around the lid of the Rose Gold 24-Karat Gold Dust to pick up a small amount, then tap it into your lips. This gives a glowing, soft finish; if you love gloss, top with Just PureGloss Lip Gloss.

  2. I love Jane Iredale and have been a fan for years! A question for anyone out there: I accidentally got some of the lip gloss (Cosmo color) on my NEW light color micro-suede sofa and it’s not coming off with the cleaning product I have. Any suggestions??? Thanks.

  3. YIKES! I’m so sorry! Have you tried the Magic Mitt moistened with a bit of water? I am going to post this question on our Facebook page and see if we get any good responses from our friends over there. I will post there, or come on over to and see what they say.

  4. Hi All,    I love Jane I. and have been aving a difficult time finding the right color for me – despite several 5) different consultations in my area.    I find some too yeallow, some too orange, some too light, some too dark…etc. I LOVE the loose powder. I just purchased some Lancome mineral powder w/white sapphire – love the color, had a reaction to the ingredients. DOES ANYONE KNOW a MATCH in JA for Landcome NATURAL HONEY 10?    Matches my skin perfectly.    Please HELP.    Thnaks!!!!! Kate

  5. Hi, it’s Kate again;    May be some confusion re my request – Please let me know if there is a best match in Jane IREDALE (JI -not ‘JA’) for Landcome Natural Honey 10.    Thanks! Kate

  6. Hi Kate, I am so sorry we are just getting back to you! My suggestion would be to take the Lancome foundation to your local retailer to see if they can best match it. I can also get you in touch with one of our great personal shoppers who can help you as well as send you samples of different colors to try. Please let me know if this would be helpful.

  7. I am a dark skinned African Americanwoman with medium yellow undertones to my skin. What pressed blush shades would work do you think?

  8. Hi Kelli,    You may want to try Golden Apricot PurePressed Blush or Flushed PurePressed Blush, both will probably look beautiful on your warm skin tone. Flushed is a bit deeper in color than Golden Apricot and both contain a little bit of shimmer.    If you would like to try our In Touch Cream Blush, Confidence would probably look very nice on you.    If you go to this link, you can find a location near you that will hopefully carry all of these options for you to try before purchasing.    Best,  Joanna

  9. Hi, I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to see that you posted a reply and a lovely offer of assistance. I definitely would appreciate being put in touch with one of your personal shopper who could help me find the right color. Thank you. Kate
