jane iredale new starter kit

I’m excited to present my first giveaway of the new year to you thanks to the sweeties at Jane Iredale.

When I received Jane Iredale’s new Starter Kit, the press materials contained this oh-so-true quote from Jane herself:

“I’ve always said makeup should be a part of the solution rather than a part of the problem.

How spot-on is Miss Jane in this thought?

While us beauty babes are minorly obsessed with makeup, skincare will always be my No. 1 concern because without a healthy complexion, no amount of makeup is going to look that great on your skin.

That’s not say that you must have perfect, pimple-free skin to have a healthy complexion; does that skin even exist?

It’s to say that you must treat your skin well first and then choose the healthy, clean makeup to layer atop it to enhance your glow.

And that’s where Jane Iredale’s Starter Kit comes in.

{Jane Iredale shared its new Starter Kit ($55) with me and is offering one of my beautiful, lucky readers a chance to win a Starter Kit of her own!}

Jane Iredale’s new Starter Kit contains the essentials you need to enhance your natural glow, including Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener, Amazing Base SPF 20 Loose Mineral Powder, PurePressed Base SPF 20 Mineral Foundation, POMMIST Hydration Spray, a mini powder brush and a travel-size cosmetic case with extra-large mirror.

Primer is one of those things that’s a bit underrated when it comes to keeping your foundation smooth and in place all day. Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener glides on easily and provides a great base for your foundation.

Another step that I think is so important in achieving a luminous complexion is spritzing your face post-makeup application. Sometimes you can look a little too “done,” so misting on a hydrating spray, such as POMMIST, gives you a bit of dew and liveliness.

POMMIST is a great little product to have for refreshing your makeup after lunch and at the end of the day before you head to happy hour.

What’s in between — your loose or pressed minerals — is what gives you that even, healthy glow, and you’re definitely in good hands with both Amazing Base and PurePressed Base. I do tend to prefer a good pressed powder, but loose minerals give you that effortless look that sometimes hard to replicate.

So are you ready to get your hands on this lovely little Starter Kit from Jane Iredale?

    Hi Kimberly,
    I’m from Spain and not sure if the this wonderful Jane Iredale giveaway is valid for your international followers like me.
    If if not, ¡I’ll still be here reading you as always!
    Hugs from Spain

    • Hi there! Unfortunately, it’s open to continental U.S. only. I’m sorry :( I will have to work with some brands who can do international giveaways, because I know my non-U.S. beauties need some goodies too. Thank you so much for your support! xoxo

  • I think what you consume and your lifestyle is how you can achieve a healthy complexion. I suffered from terrible acne last year and after eliminating anti-inflammatory foods (sugar, dairy, and wheat), strengthening my digestive system, and calming my anxiety through meditation, I can say that I am free of the acne! I’ve also been practicing Ayurveda for a few months and balancing my dosha has also helped clear my complexion. I drink warm water with lemon first thing in the morning which gives my skin this bright-ness that I have never experienced with any other skincare product before (It also makes the whites of my eyes super white). A nice skincare routine also plays a big part in the condition of your skin especially if you suffer from acne or have acne prone skin but until I started treating my body and its imbalances, I was still getting major acne. I hope this helps anyone! Thank you, Kimberly! I really enjoy reading your posts!

  • Michele

    Still trying to figure out what I need to do for a healthy complexion. Just switched over to clean products this past year so already I’m doing better. I think if I eliminated sugar I wouldn’t break out so much. I do love my dark chocolate, though… Would love to try Jane Iredale out.

  • Amy

    I’d love to try Jane Iredale out. I just got back on the natural/green skincare and makeup wagon again. I got off the wagon a few years ago because the skincare available then were not effective and low activity.

  • shortsmallsweet

    So far eliminating dairy and processed foods plus switching to green skin care has done a lot of good for my skin. It can still be better, but I think I need to learn to not get too hung up with new spots and do lots of yoga!

  • Gina

    Eating a clean diet! Which to me means cutting out processed foods and trying to eat more veggies :) also learning what your skin needs is very important. I have slowly discovered that my skin feels and looks its best when I only wash it at night and use very minimal products on it!

  • latanya t

    Don’t pick at pimples to avoid scars or blemishes

  • Jade

    Stressing less, laughing more, yoga-ing, eating consciously and cleanly (lots of veggies, minimal meat, minimal or no gluten, minimal dairy, minimal sugar), and when all that fails, masks (YÜLI and May Lindstrom) and spot treatments (Osmia Organics)!

  • CayMcCoy

    Drink lots and lots of water! This gets repeated so much, but honestly my skin can tell instantly if I skip a day constantly refilling my water bottle.

  • Emily S.

    Hydration, inside and out. I drink lots of water during the day and keep a humidifier running in my bedroom at night during the dry winter months. I wash my face with a gentle oil cleanser and moisturize with a facial oil and a homemade shea & cocoa butter cream. I also like to use a rose water toner during the day when my skin feels dry.

  • Sharon G

    Not sure if my comment was in the wrong place so… to wash off your makeup before going to bed – ALWAYS and so true about hydrating inside and out. Water makes the difference in all body organs, including the skin!

  • amy

    Eat a lot of fruit and vegetables and drink lots of water. Get 7-8 hours of sleep a night. Use Yuli Skincare!

  • juliet Dispensa

    Eating whole foods that are plant based makes a difference in a healthier complexion. Stressing less and deep breathing. Using skincare with beautiful carrier oils and essential oils.
