Weekend Getaway Makeup Essentials

weekend getawayWith summer coming to an end, you may be ready to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life to enjoy a little rest and relaxation this holiday weekend.  Whether you’re traveling to the seaside, the countryside or even to the big city this Labor Day, these essentials will ensure that you look and feel your best all weekend.

One item I always need in my bag for a weekend away is a Hydration Spray.  No matter your skin type, there is a Hydration Spray that is especially designed for you.  For oily skin, try Balance.  It’s formulated to balance the skin’s oils and help fight acne with its Green Tea Leaf Extract.  If you’re headed to the beach, the Pomegranate Extract in POMMISST Hydration Spray will help boost the performance of your SPF and minimize UV damage, while White Tea Leaf and Rosemary Leaf Extracts protect and soothe the skin, making POMMISST a perfect choice for a post-beach spritz. For dry or sensitive skin, try D2O Hydration Spray.  The Ylang Ylang Flower Extract and Essential Oil of D2O balance skin’s oils and the Chamomile Flower Extract helps calm inflammation and minimize dryness, itchiness and sensitivity.  Each of these Hydration Sprays can also all be used to to apply eye shadow wet for a deeper hue by spritzing your eye shadow brush before applying or turn eye shadows into eyeliners by spritzing any eyeliner brush then applying your shadow of choice.  Plus, they are all TSA approved, so you can carry them in your bag on your next flight (they are also great for a mid-flight refresher).

mineral makeup for a weekend getawayAnother one of my favorite makeup items for a weekend getaway is our Golden Shimmer Face & Body Lotion. No matter where your trip takes you, this beautiful, sheer and shimmering lotion will give you a natural, goddess-like glow.  The Diamond Dust in Golden Shimmer creates a flawless sheen, while the Pyrus Malus (apple) Fruit Extract helps to firm and soothe your skin.  You can use Golden Shimmer Face & Body Lotion by itself or add it to your favorite makeup, moisturizer or hair care product to create a subtle highlight.

No makeup look, no matter the occasion, is complete without mascara.  Try our NEW PureLash Lengthening Mascara in Jet Black for perfect lashes with every application.  PureLash Lengthening Mascara has cellulose fibers to give length and thickness to your lashes, creating noticeably defined eyes. Plus, the new amazing brush helps cover all your lashes evenly for a gorgeous, clump free look.  Whether this mascara is all you wear (along with your Powder-Me SPF!), or it’s the finishing touch of a full makeup look, PureLash Lengthening Mascara is a must for any weekend away.

Finally, don’t forget your Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain! This multitasking product will give you a beautiful flush and a natural, unique lip color. Whether you prefer Forever Peach or Forever Pink these all-natural stains will color-adjust to your skin’s chemistry for a look that’s all your own.

We hope that your holiday weekend gives you time to enjoy the company of those around you and make unforgettable memories.  Share your special moments with us on Facebook or Instagram and tag @janeiredale #friendfavorites for a chance to be featured!

  1. My prayers were answered for Christmas even though I did not actually have Christmas. My youngest daughter, who is 34 years old and has an 8 year old daughter, had a brain annurysm and six strokes on October 29, 2015. She stayed in ICU for 4 weeks and on a ventilator. I did not think she was going to make it nor did the doctors. Well by the grace of God and a lot of prayers, she made it through and came out of rehabilitation on December 23, 2015. Her left side was affected and we have a long road ahead with physical therapy and neurologist but she is strong. I am caring for her and my 8 year old granddaughter at this time along with a 92 year old man from my church during the day, My husband passed away in November, 2014 and during the time that my daughter was in ICU I had to move from my mother’s house as she had been in an assisted living and was moving back. My son and his wife moved me and placed all my belongings in storage and therefore I was technically “homeless” all during Christmas but I was at the hospital day and night. I then moved in with my daughter to care for her and my granddaughter. My daughter has brain damage but not sure how much yet. I am in hopes that 2016 will be a BETTER YEAR and more peaceful. I do love Jane Iredale makeup and have used it for over ten years but I have not been able to afford to purchase it for the past year due to all the family problems. Myra
