Wear Makeup Like an Olympian with Jane Iredale 24-Karat Gold Dust

Press Sample.

With the Olympics going on I can’t help but get inspired by the metals  they are all competing for.  Gold, Silver, or Bronze… each one is a victory.  The eyeshadow I am going to talk about combines gold with bronze so it is a double-win, right?  Jane Iredale’s 24-Karat Gold Dust Shimmer Powder in Bronze is beautiful.  This line actually has shades for all the major metals: Gold, Silver, Bronze, Rose Gold, and errr.. Champagne.  :)

Jane Iredale’s write up on this product: “Apply it to the cheeks, eyes and lips for a delicately gilded look. Mix it with a moisturizer for the d├ęcolletage; or into your favorite hair product for luminous locks!”

So this multi-purpose powder is finely milled and super shimmery.  It is essentially my perfect recipe for an eyeshadow.  I am almost speechless when I speak about it.  It is one of those things that to see it is to love it.  The micro-shimmers are brilliant as the light hits it.  You can see from the shadow above that it looks like a silky powder but when swatched it builds up to perfect opaqueness.

While I was pursuing the interwebz I found this video on Jane Iredale’s youtube channel and thought it would be nice to include it so that you can see the product in action!
For the look I used below I laid down a base of Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Cream Shadow in #13, a light champagne.  I then patted the Gold Dust over it with a flat shader brush.  The base was the perfect cream consistency to allow the shimmers to stick with minimal fall-out.  
The eyeshadow is much more shimmery and beautiful than this photo actually shows.
Anyway, wear the colors of the Olympians, whether it be gold or bronze… I did both! ;)  Rose Gold is the next on my wish list!
