Adventures in Makeup

My normal makeup mission has only two real objectives: camouflage under eye circles and cover blemishes. If I accomplish these objectives I put the day in the “win” column.

But now I am engaged to be married. The wedding is in August at Wintergreen and I really have no idea how to do my makeup, or even how to direct someone to do my makeup for me.

Luckily, The Spa at Wintergreen Came to My Rescue

Yesterday was their Jane Iredale Makeup Launch party, and I got a 30 minute consultation and makeup lesson with the lovely, talented, and patient Valerie.

This is what Valerie had to deal with:

  • My skin: Very pale, very sensitive. My eyes are also allergic to EVERYTHING.
  • My normal makeup: Most of my makeup is free samples from Clinique. I could tell that Valerie died a little inside when I told her this.

Why Jane Iredale?

There are a million products, right? They all promise miracles. Many leave us disappointed. Why does The Spa at Wintergreen use Jane Iredale Makeup?

  • Certified organic botanicals and top-quality natural ingredients
  • High-performance delivery systems and anti-aging benefits
  • The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends Jane Iredale - all of the SPF products are effective broad spectrum sunscreens
  • On-trend, highly-pigmented shades for every skin tone
  • Free of parabens, talc, phthalates, synthetic fragrance and GMO ingredients
  • Tests conducted for heavy metals, phototoxicity, comedogencity and sensitivity
  • Certified cruelty-free by CCIC (Leaping Bunny)
  • Jane Iredale supports humanitarian, cultural and green initiatives
  • Manufactured in the USA

The Result

I learned a lot. Valerie took the time to try different shades on me, ask about my wedding, my flowers, and what I wanted to look like. She explained what she was using, how to use it, and had an assistant write everything down for me. This was SO helpful. Now I can come back and buy more products when I am ready, and I will already know which ones will look the best on me. I won’t waste money on something I don’t like. Plus, now we have a game plan for the makeup on my wedding day!

Now that I’ve tried a high quality makeup line, I realize how harsh some of the grocery store makeups can be. My skin is just too sensitive for me to ever enjoy using those products. Jane Iredale makeup was much better for sensitive skin and eyes. It also made me feel like I was doing something good for my skin. Instead of covering up things that I don’t like, I was giving my skin the things it needs to look its best. It was like health food for your face.

So whether you have a special event planned (a wedding?!) or you just want to do something kind for your skin, booking a makeup lesson and/or a facial with Valerie is so helpful, relaxing, and fun!
