A sheer makeup base enriched with anti-ageing ingredients, perfect for mature and ageing skin.

Jane Iredale Liquid Minerals is a 3-in-1 skin serum, anti-wrinkle cream, and foundation—a perfect choice for mature and ageing skin. Infused with nourishing anti-ageing ingredients to combat fine lines, wrinkles, dryness, and loss of elasticity, this mineral foundation provides sheer-to-medium coverage for a perfected look and feel to your complexion.

Ageing skin can feel dry and tight. Accordingly, this nourishing foundation contains high concentrations of Hyaluronic Acid to deliver both instant and long-lasting hydration to the skin. Hyaluronic Acid eases discomfort and minimises dehydration-induced fine lines. This foundation also contains mineral-rich Algae to protect, condition, and soothe the skin. White Tea firms and tones the skin, improving skin elasticity for a plumper look and feel.

Jane Iredale Liquid Minerals uses a state-of-the-art delivery system of liposomes to ensure active ingredients are time-released onto the skin for long-lasting and powerful benefits.


Provides intense and long-lasting hydration with a dewy, sheer tint.

This nourishing foundation is as much skincare as it is makeup, infused with a special blend of Deep Sea Water, botanicals, and ocean minerals to replenish and revitalise skin.

Infused with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and hydrators, this nourishing makeup base will leave skin feeling soft and supple, with a natural healthy glow.

For instant and long-lasting hydration, this full coverage foundation contains Hyaluronic Acid, a moisture-boosting ingredient known to hold up to 1,000 times its own body weight in water.

A matte-finish, medium coverage foundation for combination and oily skin.

Mirenesse Liquid Silk Foundation offers long-lasting, medium coverage to the skin with a shine-free finish, perfect for combination and oily skin. Many traditional mattifying foundations can be drying to the skin, leaving it looking dull and lacklustre. But this mineral-based foundation ensures that your complexion is effectively hydrated and balanced for a flawless makeup base.

This unique foundation contains super-soft, microfine colour pigments, which provide medium coverage to the skin, blurring effortlessly over fine lines and imperfections for a more uniform skin tone and texture. With a liquid formulation for seamless blending and a powder finish, the foundation is long-wearing and sweatproof for all-day wear.

Mirenesse Liquid Silk Foundation also contains broad-spectrum SPF15 to keep the skin protected against harmful UV rays. And the non-comedogenic, non-irritating formula is perfect for sensitive skin.
