Beat The Heat

It has been scientifically proven that sunscreen is the most important skincare product that both men and women should own and wear religiously. Not only does sunscreen protect against signs of aging, but also with proper use one could drastically reduce the chances of getting skin cancer.

 

With thousands of options, different SPF factors and chemical vs. physical sunscreens on the market, one could easily get discouraged. The editors of thebeautyplace.com have searched, tested, and compiled a list of their top sunscreen picks so you can shop with ease.

All white makeup pairing:

Face – Avoid any chance of letting the white wash you out by using a bronzer to add a splash of color to your white chic look. We love Jane Iredale So-Bronze or bareMinerals All Over Face Color.

Eyes – A splash of color will pop when coupled with your all white attire. Peach, pink and pastels are our faves. Check out this eye color Trio from Jane Iredale for some great choices.

Lips – Anything goes! Try a bright red or trending hot coral or even a bold pink…you can’t go wrong with a bright red lip gloss from Glo Minerals to complete your look.

Trending Right Now in Milan = Bold Colors Galore

From Prada to Gucci to Versace, the runways of Milan were met with color, exuberance and individualistic styles this Spring and bold colors played a big part in the transformation. Terms like geeky and freaky described some of the trending styles but beauty is always top of mind. Get the hot Milan look and find your makeup couplings from The Beauty Place to complete your fashion ensemble.

 

 

Gucci RTW Spring 2016

 

 

Milan Fashion Week Makeup Pairing:

Face – Thick, matte foundation with little color trended on the Italian capital’s fashion runways. Get the contrast and haute look from The Beauty Place with Youngblood Liquid Foundation.

New York Goth Makeup Pairing:

Face Get the dramatic NYFW goth look on your cheeks with Youngblood Luminous Creme Blush.

Eyes – Amp up the drama with smoky eye shadow shades, thick black lashes and eyeliner, thick and bold. The Beauty Place has many options; one great choice is Youngblood Incredible Wear Gel Liner – Eclipse.

Lips – Channel your inner-Rihanna and find the plummiest shade or darkest of dark reds. Your lip color is the key component to get the trending look from NYFW. We like TIGI Cosmetics Lipstick in the shade: passion.

As we round up and review all the amazing-ness of this year’s Fashion Week trifecta, we confirm that New York, Milan and Paris never fail to impress us and push the boundaries of fashion. The great news is that even if we are in Chicago, Miami or Philadelphia, we can still keep a bit of Fashion Week magic happening in our everyday life.

Blondes Rock the Oscars: How can I get that hair?

J-Law aka Jennifer Lawrence seems to be just about everywhere from dating the lead singer of Coldplay to leading the charge in the Hunger Games and now rocking the red carpet with a Best Actress Nomination for Joy with hair that left us wishing we had the look!

With shoulder length locks with long layers, J-Law’s platinum blonde LOB (long bob) with golden highlights is not hard to achieve with the right products and can go formal or casual for whatever your life requires.

Snag the look by:

  • Start with straightening shampoos and conditioners.
  • Apply Strong hold gel while hair is damp (towel dried).
  • Blow dry and straighten each strand to complete the look. (Be sure to use a protective oil during straightening process.)
  • Tease it at the root to get some extra volume and set.

Cate Blanchett – She’s always been a blonde stunner but this short and classy hairstyle finished the Oscar look for Cate Blanchett. Nominated for her role in Carol, the Australian beauty chopped six inches off her blonde tresses that graced her strong jaw-line to create the sexy look that turned heads on the red carpet.

Transform the cool, choppy bob into a sleek, Oscar-quality do with a blow dry, a few curlers for volume and add texture with a texturizing finishing spray.

Mascara Reveal: Top Picks & Tips

It’s been argued that the single most important item in your makeup bag is mascara. Even if your top choice is lipstick (because, really, who can live without either of these things?), it’s hard to argue the quintessential status of the skinny, little tube with a wire brush hidden inside!
There are literally thousands of mascara choices in today’s marketplace and prices can vary from dirt cheap to competitive with the price of gold. Once you’ve picked the perfect mascara for your two eyes (and your budget), the perfect application seals the deal.

Great Choice! Your mascara is on the way…but your next question: How do I apply mascara like a pro? Don’t worry. We’ve got that covered too! Use these tips to apply your mascara flawlessly and fabulously:
1. A Clean Start: Start with clean, dry, make-up free lashes. We can’t get enough of this makeup remover. Bliss Fabulous Makeup Melt Cleanser.

2. Curl your lashes: A good eyelash curler is a must-have to get the look! Start at the base of you lashes near the root and hold firmly in place for 10-20 seconds.

3. Load Up: Don’t push and pull the brush! This will force air inside the tube and cause your mascara to dry up quickly. Instead swirl the brush around the tube to get makeup on the brush. Be sure to wipe off any excess from the brush before starting to apply.

4. Bottom First: If you start with the bottom of your lashes, they’re more likely to get the attention they deserve! Turn your brush vertically and apply from root to end.

5. Slowly, slowly…get every lash: start at the base of your top lashes and move the brush (ever so softly) from side to side so the wires of the brush separate your lashes. Repeat until desired thickness is achieved, coating both sides. Keep a eyelash comb handy to correct any clumps.
A few more mascara application hacks:
• Dusting baby powder over your lashes between the first and second coats will add depth.
• Heat up your lash curler with a blow dryer to get longer lasting curls.
• Use a spoon (curve side facing outward) to protect skin on lid or below eye from smudges.
You’ve got all the tips you need to apply your mascara like a pro and The Beauty Place has so many amazing mascara options, there’s surely one perfect for you. Do you have any great mascara tips to share? We’d love to hear all about it!

Glam up your look for your Super Bowl 50 party

Are you ready for some football? It’s time for Super Bowl 50 and that means it’s time for a party! Finding the balance between looking like the casual, sporty girl next door while still hanging on to your glam factor at Sunday’s big game is no easy feat…but don’t worry The Beauty Place has everything you need to tip the scales in your beautiful favor.

beauty-place-super-bowl-50-glam-1

Here’s how to save the glam but still “look” natural at 2016 Super bowl 50.

Go for concealer and glow – Bypass the foundation and choose a good concealer (We like Jane Iredele’s Enlighten)to cover up dark circles or blemishes. Follow up with a tinted moisturizer and get your game day sun-kissed shine with bareMinerals Ready Bronzer.

Skip the eyeliner; Focus on the mascara – For a more natural, day-glam, skip the eyeliner today (as hard as it may be) and go for lots of mascara. Get creative with the colors or just stick with black.

Rosy cheeks last all day long – Use a light pink cream to spread the color from the apples of your cheeks back to your cheek bones. Tap lightly to spread, never massage. Tigi Cosmetics has a great option that can be used wet or dry.

Tint your lips – Make them look naturally tinted (even if they’re not). Choose a nude pencil and top with a lip tint to enhance your natural color without even looking like you have lipstick on!f80db5bc-c652-461c-b5d8-1e0c960af7b6

Hairstyles for game day – A loose braid off to one side, a sleek ponytail or, for long hair, a straightened down-do with your favorite team’s hat, will all fit the bill. Keep it casual but sexy and accessorize with team colors. Think, the girl next door meets the Paris runway.
