Q: Why are Jane Iredale pros some of the best around? A: Because of ongoing continuing education and training classes, that’s why. Some upcoming ones for the pros to hone their expertise include Advanced Mineral Boot Camp, Advanced Artistry Series: The Art of Concealing, Timeless Beauty, Expert Eyes, to name a few. The pros become students and learn from masters in their art. These continuing education classes are taught all over the U.S. and include theory, composition, and all practicum levels. Increasing one’s knowledge through a structured classroom setting benefits the pro and the line and maximizes the body of knowledge.

To my dear sweet younger sister Laurita who passed unexpectedly on Monday, February 1, 2010 after a short illness and brief hospital stay. I’ll miss your beautiful smile and precious, kind loving heart. I’ll hold you and my memories of you close within my heart. Your suffering is no more. Rest in sweet eternal peace. God bless.
