Jane Iredale, also known as Iredale Mineral Makeup, is one of the most popular makeup lines available. As a pioneer in "skin care makeup," their pure and natural formulas have made them a favorite among dermatologists and estheticians. The mineral makeup line got its start in 1994 when Jane Iredale, a well-known stage, film and television actress, worked with plastic surgeons and dermatologists to create an all-natural makeup line that would boost women's confidence by enhancing their appearance while improving the health of their skin. By choosing to use natural minerals over traditional cosmetic ingredients, Iredale was able to create a line of products that not only matched the results of conventional makeup, but surpassed their benefits in coverage, staying power and anti-aging protection.
