Hair Care That Smells Amazing

7a1d0d6229ae7e72f4cf5ecdf82cc21bFall is prime time to up your fragrance game. With scents like pumpkin and cinnamon wafting through the air pretty much anywhere you go, you can’t help but be inspired by the sudden shift into warmer aromas. At TheBeautyPlace.com, we’ve stocked an amazing selection of indulgent hair care products that are both effective and aromatic—meaning after they’ve done the job of making your hair look fabulous, they’ll leave behind a scent that lasts and lasts. Here are some of our favorites:

john-masters-organics-texturizerWe all tend to get a little caught up in the vanilla thing at this time of year. It gets really popular around the holidays, but right now you can work the John Masters Organics Bourbon Vanilla and Tangerine Hair Texturizer ($16.79) into your routine and reap the rewards of 1) more controlled hair, 2) softer hair, and 3) better smelling hair. The creamy emulsion not only contains smoothing castor oil and glycerin, but also organic oils that leave hair with a fun, creamsicle-like scent.

Run, do not walk, to order this TIGI Catwalk Oatmeal and Honey Holiday Gift Set ($38). The scent is out-of-this-world amazing—it’s not quite what you’d expect, either. No, it doesn’t smell like breakfast. It’s more like dessert: slightly cinnamon-like, with a hint of brown sugar, finished with a kiss of sweet honey. That alone is phenomenal, but the products you receive, including shampoo, conditioner, and a nourishing hair mask, all work in tandem to leave your hair softer and in better shape. The extra moisture it gives is essential throughout winter!

Another scent we usually stumble across during the holidays is berry. Whether it’s a brambleberry, a cranberry, a boysenberry, or a run-of-the-mill other berry, it’s somewhere out there, adding a little extra festivity to our senses. This Rusk Healthy Blackberry & Bergamot Strengthening Shampoo ($9.99) is one to add to the mix. It’s sweet, but not overly so thanks to the crisp addition of bergamot. It smells holiday appropriate, too, and leaves hair shinier with regular use.

If you’re one of those who prefers the crisp, cool scents of summer, you’ll be able to get on board with the Rusk Sensories Calm Guarana & Ginger Nourishing Conditioner ($11.99). The scent is warm, yet isn’t overwhelmingly spicy or heady. In fact, this product earned its name for a reason: it’s quite relaxing, and you know you’ll feel better when you look in the mirror and see that your hair looks less coarse and more like a magazine cover.

Damaged hair can be a pain to manage, mainly because you spend half the time being told you can’t heat style your mane and the other half spending way too much on products that you aren’t even sure will work. Enter John Masters Organics Honey and Hibiscus Hair Reconstructor ($25.99). Enriched with healing soy and wheat proteins, it works to rebuild hair that’s in need of some extra TLC, while 14 organic extracts and plant oils drench even the driest hair with moisture and leave behind a sweet floral scent.

It’s time to stock up on your favorite hair care products! Our hair care sale starts this Saturday, October 29. It’s a great time to load up on your favorite products, try a few new ones, and get started on your holiday shopping.

Get Into the Spirit of the Season with Holiday Makeup Essentials

With the holiday season looming before us, you can pretty much count on a calendar jam-packed with social events. How you juggle that schedule is entirely up to you. At TheBeautyPlace.com, our mission is to help you juggle it in gorgeous style. Peruse our virtual aisles to find just the products you need to see you through the coming months, from glamorous lip hues to flattering eye colors. Here are some of our favorites:

d797e88ac00909fa3ae1400f173d6f54Now is definitely the time to play around with smoldering, smoky eyes. Use the Youngblood Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow Quad ($30.99) to create a killer look using shades of gray, charcoal, and black. Use the shimmery white hue to brighten the inner corners of your eyes—it won’t dull the intensity of the smokiness, but it will open up your eyes and make you look more awake. Don’t forget to pile on the mascara for extra oomph!

Color us obsessed with anything sparkly during the holiday season. One of our favorites is Jane Iredale 24-Karat Gold Dust ($10.99), a fine powder that looks just as gorgeous on the skin as it does in the cute jar. To use, pick up some powder with a fluffy makeup brush and dust it onto cheekbones and even décolleté for an instant color boost. Available in three colors, including silver, gold, and this peachy-pink champagne, the effect is pure radiance.

What’s your glam factor during the rest of the year? If you tend to play it safe most of the time, now is a good time to amplify your beauty routine with one or two products that really make your features pop. Ease into the idea with Glo Minerals Gloss in Poppy ($12.99), a fiery hue that provides an intense, glassy finish and imparts true, lasting color. The formula is packed with nourishing oils and healing antioxidants that actually improve the condition of your lips with regular use—just in case you need an excuse to wear the brazen hue.
89bef089422c4a24059e8684968ee27fAn iconic red nail is all you need to finish your look during the holiday season. You can stick with a tried-and-true, classic red with a matte finish, or you can step just a bit outside of your comfort zone with OPI Euro Centrale Collection My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours ($7.99). Infused with diamond dust, this unique formula shines from every angle, and from afar it almost resembles sparkling rubies. What better way to complement those new peep-toe heels?

Celebrations that go well into the night are fun and all, but all those runs to the restroom for a quick makeup check can be annoying. Nip that in the bud with Jane Iredale Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener ($32.99). Apply it before you put on any other makeup, and it will lock your color in place so you can party without the worry of touching up your look every hour. Bonus points for the radiant finish—it’s perfect for brightening a tired complexion!makeup-essentialsOur Cosmetics Sale starts this Saturday, October 22!

Who else is ready for some fabulous Halloween make up?

 

cleopatra-halloween-make-upThis is definitely the best time of the year! Who doesn’t love having some fun and transforming yourself into whoever (or whatever) you want to be? Don’t worry if you’re not a make up expert, we’re here to save the day! Just follow the step-by-step tutorials and you’ll see how easy it will be for you to create this amazing make up ideas.

Make Up for Cleopatra/Gypsy look

Step 1: Prepare your skin

In order to make your make up last, it is important that you clean it deeply. For this, we recommend our PCA Skin Facial Wash to remove impurities, balance your skin and hydrate it. Then, you can also use our Dr. Brandt Pore No More Pore Refiner to minimize and refine pores and make your skin look flawless!

Step 2:

Start by applying some foundation all over your face and a good concealer to hide dark circles under your eyes and nose area. Our Tigi Cosmetics Satin Liquid Foundation is a great idea! If you have oily skin, don’t forget to add a face powder to keep your face looking great for hours.

Set 3: The Eyes

step-3-make-upstep-4-make-up

Cleopatra’s dramatic and magical eyes are her key feature. Start it by dabbing cream eye shadow or a shimmery gold base on the eyelid area and then highlight the eyes with stronger colors such as gold, green or blue. Don’t forget to contour your lids to give the eye extra dimension. For the final touches, don’t be afraid of using some glitter!

Step 4: Eyelinerstep-5-make-up

You want to know the key to this look? Eyeliner! A cat eye is a must. Our TIGI Cosmetics Precision Black Eyeliner will help you to get the look. Follow your lashes and apply a thick amount on your upper and lower eyelashes. Continue drawing the line on the upper eyelid without stopping at the outer corner of the eye. The cat eye at the end is a must! You can even get creative and draw some figures instead of the typical cat eye. Complete the look with lashes full of volume using our Glo Minerals Lash Lengthening Mascara.

 Step 5:step-6-make-up

At this point, your make up is almost done. But now, is time for some contour! Begin at your ear using a contouring brush and follow your cheekbone down toward your lips to create a shadow. Add some pink blush on your cheeks and tons of highlighter.

Step 6: Lips

For this step, you can get a little creative and wear from a cream to a burgundy color. However, we do recommend using a warm natural shade like a nude, rose or peach. Don’t doubt on wearing our Bareminerals Gen Nude Buttercream Lipgloss, they’re all perfect for this make up!

Now that you have that flawless skin and those glamorous eyes, you’re more than ready to be the center of attention.

The SPF Products You Need Now

Sunscreen is the most important ingredient you can add to your skin care routine. This potent product protects your skin from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. There are two types of UVA rays: UVA and UVB. UVA skins penetrate the skin deeply, and leave it susceptible to premature lines and wrinkles. Skin may appear leathery and droopy with repeated sun exposure. UVB rays, meanwhile, are the key cause of sunburns.

00-spf-lip-balms

At TheBeautyPlace.com, we recognize that there’s more to your beauty routine than simply looking great—it’s also about adding effective products to the mix that actually make a long-term difference in the condition of your skin. We carry an extensive range of products loaded with SPF, including makeup and skin care products. Here, the ones we suggest to help protect your skin from those dangerous UV rays.

Dry skin benefits from ultra-hydrating moisturizers that drench skin with much-needed emollients. One to try: PCA Skin Hydrator Plus Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($25.99). This enriching moisturizer is loaded with free radical-busting antioxidants that leave skin looking healthier over time.

If you wear makeup every day, you may as well choose a formula that offers more than just the standard coverage. bareMinerals Mineral Veil Finishing Powder SPF 25 ($17.99) is perfect for completing your look. It gives skin a natural, practically flawless finish, and it’s ideal to use on oily skin because it soaks up the sebum to prevent that telltale shiny gleam.

coola-eco-lux-sport-continuous-spray-spf50-unscented-8-oz-bfRain or shine, it’s smart to wear sunscreen year round. One of the easiest to use is COOLA ECO-LUX Sport Continuous Spray SPF 50 ($30.99). The spray-on formula is quick and easy to use, and it provides continuous, water-resistant coverage for up to 80 minutes. As it blocks those harmful UV rays, it also kisses skin with a fresh, fruity guava mango fragrance. It’s perfect for summer—but during those cooler months, it will remind you of the warmer months to come!

 

If you’re at all familiar with the no-makeup movement, you probably wish you could get on board with it. Try a tinted moisturizer, like Quitessence Sunshade SPF 30 Tinted ($22.99), which contains green tea and vitamins D and E to help repair existing damage while preventing further problems. It’s available in light, medium, and dark skin tones, so there’s one for everyone.

 

uvlipbalmtube_mediumDon’t forget your lips! Smooth and creamy, Elta MD UV Lip Balm Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($9.99) is a water-resistant formula that combats the harsh effects of dry air. Your lips will feel softer for longer, and over time you’ll notice a visible improvement in the condition of your pout. Feel free to wear this over your favorite lipstick—it’s lightweight and colorless, so it’s perfect for adding a much-needed layer of protection.

 

What’s your SPF quotient? Make sure your beauty collection is loaded with the SPF-infused products you need for your skin and body. Don’t miss our SPF sale, beginning this Saturday, October 15, at TheBeautyPlace.com!

5 Tools of the Trade You Need Now!

Your beauty collection is jam-packed with the hottest lipsticks, the most up-to-date skin care, the trendiest hair products. Can you say the same about your tool collection? At TheBeautyPlace.com, you’ll find an enormous selection of the key tools you need to achieve a gorgeous look every single day. Here are four tools of the trade you absolutely have to have.

beautyblender

If you do nothing else, purchase the BeautyBlender Original + Mini Solid Cleanser Kit ($20.99). This duo includes the genius teardrop-shaped makeup applicator that’s designed to minimize waste and give your complexion a flawless appearance. The rounded tip makes it easy to hone in on those problematic areas, like the corners of your nose and the inner corners of the eyes. The included cleanser is a solid substance that’s great to carry on the go—it removes excess residue and keeps your BeautyBlender pristine for longer (and it smells great, too!).

Ask anyone who maintains their brows at home: It can be tricky to get it right every single time. A good pair of tweezers can help! The Tweezerman Wide Grip Slant Tweezers ($15.99) makes it easier to achieve just the look you desire. The oversized grip provides a more comfortable tweezing experience, while the slant tip makes it easy to grip even the smallest, most stubborn hairs. (Bonus points for the fun purple color—it’s a great addition to any tool kit!)

A foundation brush is one of the most important tools you can add to your kit. The Glo Minerals Dual Foundation Camouflage Brush ($24.99) provides a great alternative to applying makeup with your fingers. This product hits the nooks and crannies beautifully, and the tapered end is ideal for expertly applying concealer beneath the eyes, in the corners of the nose, and other areas that don’t require a great deal of product.

It’s important to keep your makeup brushes clean, no matter how tedious a chore it might be. Jane Iredale Botanical Brush Cleaner ($13.99) makes it a bit more of a palatable process, thanks to its lightweight formula enriched with mild seaweed conditioner and grapefruit extract. It works on contact to wash away debris, oil, and grime that collect on brushes over time.

makeup-brushes

There’s nothing like a visit to the spa and a pampering pedicure. Let’s face it, though: sometimes life gets in the way, making it incredibly difficult to drop funds on a luxurious treatment. In the meantime, you can enjoy a DIY treatment with some help from the BioSwiss 5-Piece Pedicure Set ($7.95). It contains everything you need to achieve a gorgeous at-home pedicure, including nail clippers, a nail file, a nail brush, a pumice stone, and a pair of toe separators.

A great hairbrush is often the key to an amazing hair day. Just think about how awesome your mane looks when you leave the salon. It’s time to add your own high-end hair tools to the mix! The Bio Ionic BoarShine Brush Set ($37.99) includes BoarShine brushes in medium, large, and extra large sizes. Use them to achieve a smooth, sleek finish, add volume, and control frizz.

Don’t miss our Tools of the Trade sale, running from Saturday, Oct. 8 through Friday, Oct. 14. It’s a great time to stock up on all of the essentials you need for your tool kit!
