It starts with clear, flawless skin—the kind that seems almost lit from within without a stitch of makeup. Glo Therapeutics Clear Complexion Pads ($25.99) are infused with a brightening, breakout-busting, pore-cleansing combination of salicylic and citric acids that give your skin a vibrant look. Make it a regular part of your cleansing routine to keep skin clear and oil-free.

 

peter-thomas-roth-camu-camu-maskOvernight beauty products are definitely a big deal, and with good reason. Your skin does the bulk of its work while you sleep by repairing damage and developing new skin cells. That’s why your skin often looks amazing when you wake up. Do it one better by adding Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu Sleeping Mask ($43.99) to your routine. This hydrating treatment is infused with vitamin C-rich camu camu berry. Over time, it may even help prevent the development of fine lines and wrinkles.

The best thing you can do for your skin is protect it from harmful UV rays. During summer, Murad Essential-C Day Moisture ($41.99) is an ideal choice. It’s infused with SPF 30 and potent antioxidants that help prevent free radical damage and boost skin’s radiance.

Foundation can feel heavy during summer, but there are other ways to perk up your skin without weighing down your complexion. Youngblood Lunar Dust in Twilight ($21.99) is a shimmery dusting powder that instantly brightens up your look with no effort. Dust it onto cheekbones and anywhere the sun naturally hits to create a natural glow.

 

jane-iredale-tantasiaThere are safer ways to get a tan than baking in the sunlight for hours. Try Jane Iredale Tantasia Self Tanner andBronzer ($27.99) for a simple, gradual boost of color that develops over a period of days. The result is fresh and vibrant, not orange and unflattering, and it even boasts a refreshing citrus fragrance—the complete antithesis of the usual tanner scent.

Hair Loss 101: What It Is and How You Can Deal

Dealing with hair loss is stressful. It affects more than just your appearance—it can also do a number on your self-esteem. Whether it’s caused by illness, stress, or heredity, hair loss doesn’t have to a losing battle. There are a number of ways to combat the problem and restore your confidence. At TheBeautyPlace.com, you’ll find dozens of items devoted to hair loss, ranging from shampoos to treatments to vitamins. Here are a few that may help you.

GTY_hair_loss_woman_nt_130828_16x9_992

Formulated to boost your hair’s texture while preventing breakage, the Nioxin Hair System Kit 1 ($29.99) is designed for normal to thin-looking hair types. The three-piece kit includes a cleanser that eliminates oil and residue from the scalp; a light conditioner to drench hair with moisture without weighing it down; and a scalp treatment infused with nourishing antioxidants and refreshing peppermint oil. Used as directed, hair feels stronger, looks fuller, and is less prone to everyday bretoppik-fibersakage.

While you wait for your treatment to kick in, you may want to cover your hair loss with a concealer that matches your hair color. Toppik Hair Building Fibers ($32.99) are available in nine different shades, ranging from white and light blonde to auburn and black. Using it is simple—just sprinkle the fibers onto your hair. They’ll adhere to your strands, creating the appearance of natural hair and staying put even in the face of inclement weather. It’s a quick fix that actually makes a difference in just seconds.

Much like the rest of your body, your scalp is at its best when it’s given a good workout. And though it would be a dream to have a personal stylist wash your hair and give you a scalp massage every single day, that’s probably not your reality. You can take care of your scalp yourself, though, with Bosley Follicle Energizer ($13.29). It’s designed to stimulate blood flow to the scalp by exfoliating dead skin, resulting in healthier follicles more likely to produce hair growth.

“You are what you eat” isn’t just an old adage that means nothing. You truly can improve your overall health by controlling the foods and supplements you consume. Lack of copper and selenium can contribute to hair loss, which is where the Bosley Healthy Hair Vitality Supplement ($15.99) comes in. This vitamin contains copper, selenium-rich horsetail, and cysteine. The latter is an amino acid that may encourage healthy hair growth. Bosley suggests taking one to two pills per day; with regular use, you may notice a difference.

revita-eyelash-growthHair loss isn’t limited merely to the strands on your head. If your eyelashes are looking a little sparse, you may benefit from DS Labs Revita.EPS Eyelash Growth Stimulator ($25.99). Made with an amino-rich peptide complex, this serum stimulates hair growth and is easy to apply thanks to its pen-like applicator. Simply apply it to the roots of your lashes, much like you would eyeliner. Used twice a day every day for at least two weeks, you might notice that your lashes look fuller and healthier.

Give your skin an instant boost with Jane Iredale Balance Hydration Spray ($25.99). During the summer, it cools skin down, but it also drenches your skin with much-needed moisture when temperatures drop. By balancing your skin, it may even help reduce the frequency of breakouts.

A natural glow is welcome whether it’s 100 degrees or 10degrees (brrrr). Dust Tigi Cosmetics Glow Blush in Brilliance ($15.99) onto cheekbones to achieve an effortlessly healthy look. It’s heavily pigmented, and can be used as eye shadow in a pinch, too.

Refreshment is welcome at any time of the year. We love Bliss Super Minty Soap ‘n’ Scrub ($23.99) for its crisp, cool peppermint fragrance and invigorating exfoliating powers. During summer, it will keep you cool—and you’ll even appreciate it at the end of the year, when the smoothing jojoba beads slough off dead skin cells to keep skin smooth and soft.

 

From dry cuticles to flyaway hairs to chapped lips, Egyptian Magic Natural All Purpose Skin Cream ($26.99) works on everything. This iconic beauty product has long been a favorite of makeup artists all over the world. It can even be dabbed onto cheekbones or eyelids for a hint of flattering sheen.

Give your color-treated hair the special attention it deserves! Tigi Bed Head Colour Goddess Shampoo and Conditioner ($28.99) work together to protect your hair’s fresh color, increase its shine factor, and maintain hydration. Your hair will look smoother and healthier with regular use, and you’ll notice that your color lasts longer, too. This is key during summer, when chlorine can strip hair of color, and winter, when dry air saps moisture from your strands.tigi-bedhead-shampoo

 

When your lips are on point, everything somehow looks better. During summer, we love Youngblood Mighty Shiny Lip Gel in Revealed ($17.99) for its light, flattering kiss of color.

Your Best Fourth of July Look Ever

It’s easy to dress up for Independence Day—all those stars and stripes, all that red, white, and blue. But dedicating your beauty routine to the star-spangled holiday is decidedly trickier, unless you’re perfectly fine stepping out wearing cobalt eye shadow and ruby lipstick simultaneously.84329cb254d723950b7ecf1b04dd6d4a

We think we’ve locked down just the products you need from TheBeautyPlace.com to make your Fourth of July the most gorgeous one yet. Here’s how to get into the spirit of the holiday and celebrate the nation in style.

e36e9c7484db2d8e866f18914bb0f58dNo doubt about it—it’s pretty hot in early July. Your face perspires, your makeup feels heavy, and your hair seems to take on a life of its own. Thanks to Big Sexy Hair Weather Proof Humidity Resistant Spray ($17.79), you can knock that lastone off the list. With this essential styling tool in your arsenal, your mane will look amazing and stay put while you hang out on the rooftop catching the fireworks. Try a trendy braid and mist it with spray to keep it in place—and don’t worry about pulling off a complex, Kardashian-style plait when even a casual, loose braid looks perfectly adorable.

 

Raccoon eyes are another unfortunate side effect of warm weather, but you can up your game with bareMinerals Flawless Definition Waterproof Mascara ($16.99). Create lengthy, voluminous lashes that won’t budge no matter what
the evening brings.

Now is definitely the time to rock some bold eyeliner behind t696f1be352f141746a048c103383d234hose lush lashes. Try TIGI Cosmetics Perfect Eyeliner in blue ($12.99) to achieve a festive look for the holiday. Don’t be timid—start at the inner corner of your eye and

make your way outward, finishing with a winged effect along the top lash line. Along the lower lashes, use a light color to make your eyes appear even larger. White is a great option in keeping with the holiday’s standard colors, but you can also try the soft peach Glo Minerals Precision Eye Pencil ($11.99) for a similar effect.

 

Balance out those brilliant eyes with a more subdued cheek color. Dust a light, natural shade, such as TIGI Cosmetics Glow Blush in Brilliance ($15.99), onto the apples of your cheeks to achieve an instant, summery glow that will also complement your tan.

Com531df25cb55199191e58cee3b04b8bf3plete your Fourth of July look with the ultimate finishing touch—a kiss of vibrant red on your lips! We suggest bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Live It Up ($16.99). It makes a strong statement and is a true red hue, free of any pink or brown undertones. Bonus: It’s the ultimate holiday lip color, too.

 

Shop our Independence Day sale at TheBeautyPlace.com and score big on your favorite beauty products just in time for the holiday—and for showing off all summer long.

The Beauty Tools You Need Now – and How to Use Them

You know your way around a makeup bag. You can sort your mattes from your satins, your BBs from your CCs, your powders from your creams. Choosing the right products is one thing, but applying them the right way – and with the right brushes and tools – requires another sort of expertise. At TheBeautyPlace.com, you’ll find all of the implements you need to enhance your look and apply your makeup. Here, the beauty tools you need now, and how to use them like a pro!Slider_3_-_The_Best_Drugstore_Makeup_Brushes

My life changed when I added a foundation brush to my arsenal. The Glo Minerals Dual Foundation – Camouflage Brush ($24.99) is worth every penny. The tapered brush on one end is ideal for applying concealer to those hard-to-reach spots, like the corners of your nose or the inner corners of your eyes. Meanwhilemakeup-brushes, the wider, flat brush offers an exceptional way to apply foundation. For best results, pour makeup onto the back of your hand, dip the brush into your makeup, and apply to face, taking care to blend thoroughly. The end result is exceptionally flawless.

The key to perfect blush application is to choose the right brush. The bareMinerals Handy Buki Brush ($17.89) features a compact handle and a wide body. It’s sized just right for picking up a sufficient amount of color, and simply tapping it onto the apples of your cheeks in a swift motion will result in a fresh, natural glow. (Applied too much blush? Dust some translucent powder onto your cheekbones to dull the color a bit.)

Never underestimate the importance of a lip brush. Though it’s easy enough to slick on your lipstick straight from the tube, using the Glo glo-mienrals-lip-brushMinerals Lip Definer Brush ($14.99) allows for more precise, even application. It also comes in handy if you fill in your lips with pencil first; use the brush to neatly apply color directly on top without missing a spot.

 

 

Where has this been all of our lives? The Tweezerman Power Nail Clipper ($5.99) was designed with convenience in mind. It features a lengthy handle with a sturdy grip, as well as sharp blades to provide a more even cut. Made with stainless steel, it’s the perfect addition to your makeup bag.

It’s one of the biggest beauty faux pas imaginable, yet it’s a crime we continue to commit without fail. Ladies, wash your makeup brushes! Neglecting this simple and very necessary habit will result in grimy brushes coated in makeup, dirt, debris, and oil. Now just imagine running those unkempt brushes on your face every day. Ew, right? The solution: Spritz your brushes with Jane Iredale Botanical Brush Cleanser ($13.99). The formula dries quickly and leaves brushes as good as new.

Vacation Essentials: Key Beauty Products for Your Summer Trips

Packing for vacation is stressful enough without worrying about how to pack your beauty products. By now, you probably know the drill far too well: You struggle to shove those TSA-friendly bottles into a TSA-approved bag, barely zipping it up before realizing you need to leave something behind because, well, there’s just no room.

 

At TheBeautyPlace.com, we feel your pain. And because it’s summer, we feel it’s important to curate a well-edited list of beauty products designed to make packing for travel simpler. Even more, these products will make you feel glam and look cool all season long. Here are the key beauty products you need for your summer trips.

8039eda5be7be161cca229c18d4d1352

Hair

 

You can toss this Marrakesh Brush-Up Argan Oil Mist ($14.79) into your purse when you reach your destination, or even once you get on your flight. It’s perfect for on-the-go maintenance, adding luster to dull hair and smoothing out frizz in an instant. For an easy touch up, spritz some onto the palms of your hands, rub together, and massage into lengths of hair.

lock-stock-barrel-powderWho has time to shampoo when there are all of those amazing sites and attractions to check out? Toss Lock, Stock & Barrel Volumatte Volumizing Powder ($19.39) into your bag for an easy alternative to basic suds. Sprinkle this effective cleanser onto roots, rub vigorously, and comb through. Your hair will look fuller, livelier, and healthier – even if you haven’t washed in a couple of days.

 

Skin

Hotels may provide hair care products and soap, but rarely are facial cleansers on the menu. Toss a bottle of Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash ($8.69) into your bag. Cooling and invigorating, this cleanser leaves skin “blissfully” clean while also sloughing off dead skin cells and smoothing out rough patches.

murad-clarifying-wipesAfter a long day spent exploring some exotic locale, the last thing you probably want to do is remove your makeup. No, you’d rather spend that time snoozing for a few hours before doing it all over again tomorrow. Understandable – but don’t let your best beauty habits go south just because you’re on vacation. Toss a package of Murad Clarifying Wipes ($15.99) in your bag and remove your makeup in just a couple of quick swipes. Voila: soft, clean, healthy skin.

 

Body

If you only pack one item for the entire trip, make it this. A tube of sunscreen, such as Murad Oil-Free SPF 30 ($26.99), gives your skin the protection it needs from harmful UV rays. This broad-spectrum formula is ideal for all skin types and leaves skin soft, supple, and free of burns.

Few things are more dehydrating than flying. The DermOrganic Skin Care Travel Set ($8.89) is not only practical, but also formulated to combat this very thing. From dry facial skin to parched arms and legs, these moisturizers drench skin with nourishing Moroccan argan oil extract, leaving it luxuriously soft. There’s even a petite bottle of argan oil, perfect for smoothing wayward strands while on the go.

Make sure you check all of our travel sizes items of your favorite products.

 

Safe Travels!

The Hottest Beauty Trends of Summer 2016

It’s the season of fresh. As summer approaches, we’re gearing up for three months of endless color, luminous skin, and even a few unexpected beauty twists. Here are the hottest trends of the moment, with a few of our favorite products to help you get the look.

Bold Lips814ec694965f13a39fe6eaccdb532130

 From Zac Posen to Anna Sui, runway models brightened up the catwalk with their bolder-than-bold lips. What better way to punctuate your look this summer than with a bright lip? It’s the perfect way to show off some color without overdoing the rest of your face. Try Youngblood Mighty Shiny Lip Gel in Exposed ($19.99) for a fresh pop of color.

Blue Lids

723363b1521ce391e90c36e70f2407d8Blue eyeshadow? What is this, 1983? Believe it or not, though, the aquatic hue made quite a splash on the spring/summer 2016 runways. And rocking this raucous hue isn’t as tricky as you may think, especially if you opt for a product like the TIGI Cosmetics HD Quad Eyeshadow in Lush ($19.99). In addition to a brilliant blue, it contains three other mineral-infused shades that create the perfect day or night looks.

Undone Hair059b2f2447d72d6c629ea3c12274903d

While “messy” isn’t the usual look we strive for, we couldn’t help but fall for the slightly unkempt looks shown at Tracy Reese and Marc Jacobs. Hair was casually mussed, completely unfussy, and barely styled. And anything that simplifies our beauty routines is a definite yay! Achieve the look with Blow Pro Beach Blow Texturizing Mist ($18.93). Just run it through wet hair to show off those enviable beach waves. It contains Dead Sea salts, which help lend hair that slightly undone, roughed up look.

Dewy Skin

f2d935d4fdee5ee580743995a2e53907 It seems like every summer is the summer of flawless, dewy skin. The barely-there look is best achieved with a lightweight tinted moisturizer, the antithesis to your usual heavy foundation that may weigh your look down (and, let’s face it, sweat right off within minutes). bareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream ($23.99) covers all the necessary bases: It provides just enough coverage to minimize flaws, contains SPF 30 to combat harmful UV rays, and feels light and silky against skin.

Shimmery Finish
1f29d83876106363fe46abe18dcde45e 
A little shine never hurts – just as long as it’s not a slick of oil messing with your T-zone. Taking inspiration from the glittery complexions spotted at Baja East and Alice + Olivia, apply the vibrant Glo Minerals Shimmer Brick in Luster ($20.99) all over your face for an instantly perked up visage. You can use this product anywhere, from your cheekbones to your eyelids.

Double Duty: Multiple Uses for Your Beauty Products

These days, we spend the majority of our time finding ways to save time. The fact is that time-saving solutions are a hot commodity. What better way to make the most of your early mornings – and maybe catch a few extra zzz’s – by using beauty products that pull double duty? Here are several products that work overtime, offering multiple uses and shaving minutes off your daily, often hectic routine.

f169be2c98a4314d3fa31aabd7ebedea

In a pinch, lipstick can double as blush – and a cream blush can also fill in for your lipstick, as needed. Then there are the genius products actually formulated to do both, like the Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain in Forever Pink ($17.79). Producing a soft, girlish flush, the flattering hue adds a kiss of color to your pout and brightens up even the most tired complexions in an instant. The creamy, water-resistant, long-lasting formula is a dream.jane-iredale-lip-cheek-stain

 

You reach for your shaving cream mid-shower, only to discover there’s barely a drop left. We’ve all been there – and we’ve all felt that desperately uncomfortable itch that occurs when we substitute soap for shaving cream. A better solution? Grab your hair conditioner. It’s rich, thick, and moisturizing, and it provides just the right slip to glide your razor over. Give TIGI Bed Head Elasticate Conditioner ($9.99) a try for its hydrating prowess. It’s as good to your skin as it is to your hair!

bed-head-elasticate

Just as valuable as time are options. We love a product that doesn’t stop at just one – it goes above and beyond, offering a plethora of possibilities. The CHI Nano Digital Flat Iron ($99.98) is a genius example. Not only does it straighten locks to perfection, but it also serves as a curling iron. With a quick flick of your wrist, you can use the iron to create lush, voluminous curls or even tight ringlets.

chi-flat-iron

Sometimes you just don’t have the time or motivation to address every single inch of your face. Simplify your routine with a product like Glo Minerals Shimmer Brick in Gleam ($20.99). A multipurpose product that serves as a blush and highlighter, it instantly brightens up a sallow complexion, adds color to cheeks and even contours your face to add dimension.glo-minerals-shimmer-brick

 

Who hasn’t overslept and taken a frantic shower – or worse, skipped that morning shower altogether – just to get to the office in time? If you can squeeze in a quick rinse, make use of Anthony Logistics’ Invigorating Rush Hair and Body Wash ($24.99). It’s designed to clean and condition your hair and your skin, so you’re left completely soft from head to toe – without the need to use a whole bunch of products to achieve the same effect.097735d6e58f15edb101e22edd367bd2

Self-Tanning 101: How to Achieve a Flawless Golden Glow

tumblr_nt7fg8QHAS1thynt0o1_500Summertime is crazy-fun time – a chance to soak up the sunshine, laze over lazy evening drinks on sidewalk patios, and hit the beach. But it’s also that time of year when a golden glow seems to take precedence over every other beauty goal. Here’s how to make a flawless self-tan come to life (we promise, it’s easy).

bliss-blood-orange-scrubBegin with freshly exfoliated skin. This is the most important step of all! Without sloughing off those dead skin cells and rough spots, you risk applyingself-tanner to areas that aren’t ready for it – and your self-tanning product will definitely show up as darker patches in those areas, too. A product like Bliss Blood Orange + White Pepper Sugar Scrub ($31.59) is a dream in so many ways: it smells lovely, lathers up just like your favorite shower gel, and gentle scrubs away rough spots with mild sugar granules.

Dry off completely. Your skin shouldn’t be damp when you apply a self-tanning product, so towel off your body thoroughly and wait several minutes until you’re completely dry. (Use that time to dry your hair!)

dermalogica-body-hydrating-cream

Next, moisturize any dry areas on your body. A lightweight body lotion, such as Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream ($25.89), sinks into rough spots like elbows, knees, and ankles, creating an instantly smooth canvas for your self-tanner. Don’t forget your face! Smooth an equally light moisturizer like Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion ($28.89) onto dry areas, such as the corners of your nose and around your mouth.

avene-self-tannerIt’s time to tan! Choose an effortless product that takes the guesswork out of thewhole process. We love Avene Moisturizing Self-Tanning Lotion ($20.99), which applies just like – you guessed it – a body lotion. Smooth on this vitamin E-enriched product to achieve a fresh, natural-looking glow (and much softer skin). Use it for at least three days to reach your optimal shade preference.

 

tantowel-faceWho knew tanning your face could be this easy? Thanks to the TanTowel Face Tan Towelette ($30 for 15), you can enjoy a sun-kissed glow all season long – without worrying about damaging UV rays. Apply it as you would a moisturizer, buffing the towelette in a circular fashion over your entire face. Voila – a streak-free, gorgeous tan from head to toe.

 

532c312f50d978496de3ef7559961637

If you’ve made any mistakes, don’t fret – and please don’t attempt to remove all of your hard work by vigorously scrubbing your face and body! Instead, run a slice of lemon over the area and let it sit for about 10 minutes. The citric acid in the lemon will break down the tan and rid your skin of color, so you’ll have a fresh canvas on which to work.
