What Does Makeup Do for You?

rps-makeup-image To find out just how comfortable women are in their own skin, skinstore.com recently surveyed 3000 women from all 50 states concerning their feelings towards their own natural beauty. The survey found that one in three women would never leave the house without makeup, and when it comes to going to work, 50 percent wouldn’t go to work without first putting their face on. Clearly, makeup helps women feel more confident, complete, and put-together.

“We understand that cosmetics can make a woman feel ready to take on the world. To help our patients feel their best, Renaissance Plastic Surgery carries Jane Iredale® Makeup at our St. Louis practice. A mineral makeup line, Jane Iredale was the first makeup line to be specially developed to promote skin health. All of the products are made without talc, FD&C dyes, and parabens, as well as being free of synthetic preservatives and fragrances. Jane Iredale cosmetics look good, feel good, and are good for the skin.”

   

Foundation: Let’s Start at the Very Beginning

Over half of the women in the study chose foundation as the one product that they cannot go without. Giving women the ability to create an evenly toned complexion, foundation masks flaws and, when applied correctly, can add a subtle warmth to the skin. While many foundations can upset the skin and clog pores, Jane Iredale foundations contain only natural ingredients—making them ideal for women with sensitive skin. Purepressedâ Base Mineral Foundation, and Glow TImeâ Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream provide a range of coverage and have both received the Skin Cancer Foundation’s seal of approval as each contains broad spectrum SPF protection. At Renaissance Plastic Surgery, our aestheticians promote skin-healthy habits—along with makeup, proper skincare, facials, and microdermabrasion to help enhance the skin’s natural glow.

Mascara: Wide Eyed & Beautiful

Coming in a close second to foundation was mascara. The study found that women feel instantly more confident when their eyes are brought to life. A quick swipe of Jane Iredale’s Purelashâ Mascara adds a full, feathery flourish to the eyelashes. Renaissance Plastic Surgery’s R Medical Spa can also enhance your eyes through a number of non-surgical treatments including Botox® and laser treatments.

Lipstick: Accentuate Your Pout

Women voted nude lipsticks as the top confidence-boosting lip color. Evidence that women love a natural lip, subtle pink came in second followed by dark red. More than ever, women want to emphasize the appearance of their lips. Along with lipstick, injectable lip fillers can naturally enhance the lips by creating a soft and plump pout. We love that makeup can help a women feel more confident in her own beauty! We would be happy to show you tips, tricks, and techniques as well as introduce you to Jane Iredale products that can change the way you see yourself!
