MY BASE MAKE-UP ROUTINE / jane iredale:
Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream & PurePressed Base

Primers, foundations and powders are the beginning of every girl's make-up routine - unless you start with your eye make-up which is fine but just a little bit alien to me. Oh of course the pre-makeup product that is now a must in every girl's and boy's make-up bags is a primer, because who knew that you could put a product on that was gonna make your make-up last forever. I've tried mutiple different foundation products when growing up, I started with Avon cream to powder foundation, then it was Rimmel, then I moved onto Mac Studio Fix, then it was Estee Lauder Double Wear and at the present it's jane iredale's Glow Time BB Cream in the shade BB6. 

I think the only primer's I have ever owned have belonged to Rimmel and Benefit. And powders again I stuck to Rimmel Match Perfection translucent powder which was great until I discovered jane iredale's mineral make-up.

Read on to discover why these are some of my favourite products...

jane iredale: the luxe line, advanced nutrition programme & environ skincare | #iiaacomplimentday

On Tuesday 24th January (will my blog posts ever be on time??), it was National Compliment Day and I got sent a very exciting package sent by Davina from the iiaa. With the hashtag #iiaacomplimentday I quickly took a snap of all of the products on the manicure bar at work and posted it to instagram, I had a quick look through the press releases and the products and then unfortunately had to go straight back to work. And what with going to the gym in the mornings before work it meant that I didn't really get a chance to experiment with the make-up and try all of these lush Jane Iredale products out, I already use the Eye Gel and I am yet to take the supplements. So that's what I have been doing today, trying out the make-up as well as taking pictures and not doing very much else, story of my life.. although I did get my nails done AND I bought a new handbag, so there's that.

I'm going to split up the three brands for this blog post, just so we don't all get confused. But these products are so important and beneficial for your skin if you use them together to feed and fority your skin and then finish with mineral make-up using all three amazing brands. And fyi they are SO good for your skin. 

Included in my #iiaacomplimentday package there was Skin Accumax sample for me to try from Advanced Nutrition Programme, and Environ's Youth EssentiA VitaPeptide Eye Gel and then a whole bunch of lovely make-up from jane iredale's Luxe Line gift set, aswell as a cute little hand mirror and a spoon, that I only found by emptying the entire contents of the box because it was well hidden away! πŸ˜‚
