HALLOWEEN INSPIRATION – THE BLOOD DRIPPING MANICURE

hbz-halloween-nails-01-2170119-sm-1

For Prabal Gurung’s Spring 2013 runway show, the designer picked this look for the models’ nails and for Halloween, it’s perfect! So here’s how to do it, step-by-step.

Step 1: Apply a base coat.

Step 2: Apply one coat of a creamy pale polish, like OPI Mimosas for MR & Mrs

Step 3: Use a bobby pin dipped in the deep red polish (I picked OPI Red) to plop on a little bit of color to the nail. Drag the polish upward toward the tip of the nail.

Step 4: Repeat 1 – 2 times per nail. You can even add a little random dot elsewhere as an extra “spatter.”

Step 5: Connect the drips with a line of polish across the top. It doesn’t have to be perfect straight; it can look like a messy French manicure (i.e. any French manicure I do on myself). Wait for the polish to fully dry.

Step 6 (optional): Apply a top coat for extra shine (For fast drying and high-gloss shine I highly recommend RapiDry by OPI)

HALLOWEEN INSPIRATION – SKELETON GLAM

a66b93d6381a5d03c1006d76979371bd

Skulls are a Halloween staple that make for a classic costume. But instead of taking the easy route and wearing a mask, learn how to create a painted-on skull face. This makeup look will GLAM your skeleton to the next level.

TOOLS: light foundation, black liquid eyeliner, black/white eyeshadow, eyeshadow brush, shading brush 

THE EYES
Step 1: Apply light-colored foundation all over your face (as close to white as possible) apple all the way down your neck
Step 2: Outline your eye sockets with black eyeliner. The circles will look best if they’re not perfect. Create a line above your brown bone and your cheek bone.
Step 3: Fill in the eye sockets with black eyeshadow using an eyeshadow brush.

THE NOSE
Step 1: Using the liquid eyeliner, draw the letter M across the center of your nose. The sides of the M should wrap around your nostrils.
Step 2: Fill in the letter M with the black eye shadow.

THE TEETH
Step 1: Color your lips with white eyeliner or power
Step 2. Using the black eyeliner, draw a line from the corner of your mouth toward the ear, about three inches on both sides.
Step 3: Using the black liquid eyeliner, draw a vertical line down the center of your mouth, from just above your top lip to past your bottom lip.
Step 4: Draw six more vertical lines about half an inch apart to the left center, then repeat on the right side.

THE JAW/ THE CHEEKBONES
Step 1: Using the black liquid eyeliner, outline two hollow areas on the side of your face, one hollow are should be close to your teeth and the other hollow area should be closer to your ear, on your cheekbone.
Step 2: Draw a straight line that connects the two hollow areas.
Step 3: Fill in all four hollow areas (two on each side) with the black eyeshadow and darken the straight lines that connect them.
Step 4: Connect the last two top teeth on both sides of the mouth to the hollow area closest to your teeth.
Step 5: Connect the last two top teeth on both sides of the mouth to the hollow area closest to your teeth.

FINISHING TOUCH
Step 1: Use black eye shadow around your face to blend and shade all over to create the look that your face is hollow.

TOP MASCARA – EDITOR APPROVED

2a3cf25412e335dee669cc26e0630ee9

If we had to live with just one beauty item, we think its fair to say that most women would pick mascara—a little length and color on the lashes can go a long way. But which brand would you choose? While there are plenty shared obsessions when it comes to mascara, we at The Beauty Place swear by “Lashes To Die For” by Peter Thomas Roth. The unique design of the mascara’s wand defines the lashes with application, adding lots of volume. The formula of the mascara is very buildable without clumping at all, leaving your lashes soft and nourished. The color is a nice rich black that dries into a satin finish. If you’re looking for “Lashes To Die For” look no further than Peter Thomas Roth!

Here at TBP we’re all about saving you money—especially when it comes to beauty products.

Where to save! Where to splurge!

HALLOWEEN INSPIRATION – DARK EYESHADOW

457df7fc8411ca0025d7facb5087a055

Black eyeshadow is one of those colors that can add major drama to your makeup. With black eyeshadow we love creating a smokey eye look with a matte finish. Application is very important, its all about blending and building the color.

TOOLS: black shadow, eye definer brush, angled eyeshadow brush

3941282 21422

Step 1: The best spot to start application for black eyeshadow is “in the crease” of your eyelid and the outer corners of the eyes. This will give your lid deep definition without overpowering your eyes.

Step 2: Using an angled brush, apply the black eyeshadow onto your lash line acting as an eyeliner.
Step 3: It is very important to blend the black eyeshadow well into the lid in sweeping motions. By blending the black in, a softer smokey look is created. The color will remain matte black, but look polished to perfection.

Finish the look with our favorite mascara Lashes To Die For by Peter Thomas Roth!

HALLOWEEN INSPIRATION – 70′S HAIR

27df8f88488b9a18dbf2934d36e5f302

From afros and blunt bangs to headbands and boho braids, 70’s inspired hair is top on our Halloween list. Taking cue from the Disco Days, this fun and flirty look is achievable with big false lashes, winged eyeliner, nude lips, peachy bronzed blush and most importantly – big bold hair.

Blow out your hair to the max, curl it, then brush it out. Finish the look with gold hoop earrings and a printed jumpsuit.

TOOLS: paddle brush, styling mouse, hairspray, curling iron

STEPS:

  1. Start with clean, blow dried hair.
  2. Prep the hair with a light-hold styling mousse so you get a little extra support + hold from the inside when you set it.
  3. Take a section as seen above and clip it up. Create sections then curl.
  4. The more room there is between your scalp + pin, the less volume it will create.
  5. Once you get to the very end, give it a mist of light holding hairspray or thermal styling spray. (Don’t worry if little pieces fall out! There will be so much texture, you won’t really notice those.)
  6. Your iron should be on medium, not high. Start at the bottom and curl the end piece first. That will keep the hair from unraveling. Work your way up to the base. Don’t let the hair get too hot. I like to do it on 300 degrees Fahrenheit and only clamp the flat iron for 5 seconds at a time.
  7. Once you finish your entire head let it cool then brush with a big paddle brush until you reach your frizziest potential. Give it a good spray and you’re done!

NATURAL OILS – GET GLOWING

LavendarEssentialOils660

From argan to coconut, natural oils are having a moment. So which trendy, all-powerful oil is right for your skin type? Beyond their hydrating abilities, each one of the standout oils below targets a specific skincare concern. With a little help from our friends at GLAMOUR magazine, we’re breaking down the top natural oils for your skin type.

cb4313643126c84553799890300c102b

Argan

This Moroccan all-star just might be the MVP of the oil world. It’s a lightweight hydrator that softens face, body, and even hair. Rich in natural vitamin E, argan also works to lighten acne scars and other forms of discoloration.

Coconut

Caribbean women swear by coconut oil to ward off sun-parched skin, and we love using it on chapped lips and dry hands. Look for cold-pressed virgin oils, which have higher levels of skin-beneficial nutrients than the heat-refined variety. Tip: ingesting coconut oil helps heal skin from the inside out—try using food-grade versions in salads and baked goods.

Jojoba

Sourced from the seeds of a shrub native to the Sonoran Desert, this heavy-duty oil can be used year-round to prevent moisture loss and soothe red, irritated skin. It’s especially great for dry and mature complexions, since these two skin types tend to have underactive sebum glands.

Marula

This newcomer to the oil world is trending in a big way. High in essential fatty acids, it’s been used by Kenyan women for centuries to keep their skin protected against dehydration. Plus, it deflects free radicals and helps reverse the signs of sun damage.

Pomegranate

This super fruit’s oil has sky-high levels of antioxidants, which help to fade fine lines and wrinkles while brightening overall skin tone. Plus, it won’t clog your pores, so it’s ideal for blemish-prone types.
