Jane Iredale has done it again! In my opinion, their products are the best makeup for acne, when it comes to coverage, skin health, and a natural look. The astonishing Disappear Concealer has changed my life and given me confidence I never thought I’d have again.
When I first began using Jane Iredale products over a year ago, my skin was in terrible shape. My face and neck were red, scarred, and bumpy. Inflammation and cystic acne reigned. I needed heavy coverage, and Jane Iredale’s powders just weren’t cutting it.
I was ecstatic to find out that Jane Iredale offered a concealer. As soon as I began using it underneath the Jane Iredale PurePressed Base, I looked and felt much better. Even the Light shade offers very opaque concealment.
Of course, I was so severely inflamed that it was nearly impossible for my redness to be invisible. It has taken a very long time to get to the point where the concealer hides nearly all my acne scars.
Now my skin is almost completely clear! I don’t know if the green tea extract is part of the reason, but one thing is for certain—this concealer did not make my skin worse.
The only drawback to Jane Iredale Disappear Concealer is that it doesn’t blend easily when you apply a thick layer. I’ve experimented with the Jane Iredale Flocked Sponge, the Jane Iredale Foundation Brush, and my fingers. I’ve finally developed the technique that works best for my desired coverage, skin sensitivity, and most natural look.
How I apply my concealer:
- Using the brush, I apply a pea-sized amount to each cheek, where I need heavy coverage.
- Brushing until there is an opaque layer spread around each cheek, I’m careful not to rub too much. Over-rubbing could result in irritation or a rough, unnatural finish.
- Applying smaller amounts to minor red spots or scars on the rest of my face, I do my best to make my skin look perfect.
- Touching up with the sponge (or fingers), I make sure the concealer naturally blends in with my skin. I rub very lightly in small circular motions wherever the makeup looks the most unnatural.
Finally, I brush on my Jane Iredale PurePressed Base powder, and there we go! That’s the closest to natural skin I will have for a long time.
The recovery period is aggravating, as I am lazy and would rather do without wearing makeup. However, I know very well that Jane Iredale will be enhancing my beauty for years to come. I don’t want to buy anything else.
