Jane Iredale PurePressed Base

Posted by

I have a confession……most days I don’t actually wear foundation.  I hate liquid foundations because I don’t like the feel on my face and I can never seem to get them to look natural on me.  This Jane Iredale PurePressed base is one of the best powders I’ve ever used.  You literally can’t feel it once it’s on and it gives a really natural, barely there finish.  I’ve got the base in the shade Golden Glow which is exactly the right tone for me – exactly!  PurePressed is a mineral powder with spf 20 which doesn’t contain oil, preservatives or fragrance so is suitable for sensitive skin.   I like that it doesn’t look obvious but still manages to even out my skin tone completely and that it’s really quick and easy to apply.

I’ve been using the Jane Iredale Handi brush to apply which is a very soft goat hair brush.  It picks up just the right amount of powder and is great for blending.

You can buy PurePressed bases from MineralBeauty for £31.95 and refills are also available for slightly less than this.  There are loads of shades to choose from so you should be able to find the perfect one for you.  You can also buy the brush from the same site for £22.67.  I really like Jane Iredale products and would definitely buy more if they were more widely available in the UK!

If you prefer to shop on the web mineralbeauty.co.uk is one good option.

  2. This looks really nice on you. Your skin is so lovely you don’t really need foundation! (But I kind of feel that the words ‘make-up brush’ & ‘goats hair’ should never be used in the same sentence!!) xx
