How To Get The Ultimate Holiday Look

glitter-2We can finally say that the winter is here, and with it, comes the holiday season!! This time of year is full of festivities and events; there is always some family dinner to attend or some holiday party organized by our friends. As women, we always have our outfits ready in advanced for those dates, but we also know that no outfit is complete without a good hair and make up look that goes in tune with the trends of the season. We want to share with you some our top tips and a step-by-step tutorial on how to achieve soft waves and a trendy make up look perfect for the season.

look

Lets start with the hair!

Soft waves have become a very trendy hairstyle along the last years; it creates a very sophisticated yet effortless look. First, it is recommended that you wait at least a day after you have washed your hair to make them last longer.

Then, start doing your waves with the Bio Ionic GoldPro Curling Iron 1.25″ ($85.99). This iron contains 24-carat gold barrel smoothest and curls hair leaving it feeling soft to the touch.  The 24-carat gold barrel help distribute heat evenly through hair while the mineral complex seals moisture in.  The digital temperature control makes it easy to regulate to desired heat levels.

If you want to give a more daring touch to your waves, try spraying some Big Sexy Hair Flip It Over Full & Wild Hairspray 4.4 oz ($15.89) this product is designed to give volume and texture to your hair, without leaving it stiff, heavy or sticky.

Now that the hair is done, lets do our make up!

First, the primer: it is important to always remember all the benefits of the primer as it helps to cover the pores and it gives a good texture to the skin. We recommend using the bareMinerals Prime Time Brightening Foundation Primer ($19.99). This product prepares skin for flawless coverage and adds luminous glow. Conceal enlarged pores, uneven texture, and dryness while creating a silky, smooth canvas.

Then, lets apply some foundation: when shopping for foundation, always make sure that the shade is very similar or almost the same as the skin tone of your neck. If you are looking for a product that not only serves as a foundation, but it also cares for your skin, check out the Jane Iredale Liquid Minerals A Foundation ($30.99) which contains ingredients specially designed to minimize lines of expression, pores and more! In addition, they have a great variety of tones so you can find the perfect one for you. For a more professional and complete coverage, use a special brush like bareMinerals Perfecting Face Brush ($24.99) and apply the base evenly.

Say good-bye the dark circles! If you want full coverage of those dark circles, but at the same time you don’t want it to look heavy, don’t doubt on wearing the bareMinerals Blemish Remedy Concealer ($20.99) trust me, it looks natural on the skin! This product not only covers the imperfections but also promotes clearer, healthier-looking skin.

Now, the powder! A good powder is the key to make your makeup stays in place. It also removes all that oily appearance of the face. It is important that when choosing a powder we can evaluate if it is going to stay in our face for long time. That’s why we recommend the Dermablend Setting Powder 1 oz ($22.99) that guarantees that the effect will last for 16 hours without staining your clothes and it will stay with you from the morning until you get home.

eyebrowaDefine your eyebrows: Unfortunately, not everyone has hairy and perfect eyebrows, but don’t worry, we got you! The Tigi Cosmetics Brow Sculpting Duo-Brunette ($13.99) serves to fill those blank spaces. In addition, this mineral makeup comes with two tones that can be combined so you can get the perfect tone for your eyebrows. Don’t forget that you’ll need an angular brush like the Jane Iredale Angle Liner Brow Brush ($12.99) to achieve a more accurate way to have your eyebrows on fleek!

It is time for some contour! The Youngblood Mineral Radiance – Sunshine ($28.99) is a bronzer that will help you to make yourself look like you were touched by the sun this winter season. Now, lets apply some pink touches to our cheeks! For this, we love to use the Tigi Cosmetics Glow Blush – Awaken ($15.99) They have great slip, are silky smooth, and can be used wet or dry!

Then, lets wear the eye shadows of the season! Because it is a makeup for the Christmas season, we recommend using darker shades. The Jane Iredale Eyeshadow Kit ($36.99) comes in different shades and brings colors like brown and black that will help you create a perfect winter look. Mix colors and apply shadows to your crest and eyelids. Plus, if you use different brushes you can create different styles, some brushes that will facilitate the process of makeup are the Glo Minerals Brush – Eye Definer ($7.49)TIGI Cosmetics Brush – Blending Brush ($10.99) and TIGI Cosmetics Brush – Shading Brush ($10.99). Play with them and create your own style!

Eyeliner: This step is crucial to enhance your look. With the idea of the holidays in mind, we think that the TIGI Cosmetics Precision Black Eyeliner ($12.99) is the perfect option since it’s a waterproof long-wearing formula.

The last step to finish our eyes makeup is some mascara. We chose the Glo Minerals Volumizing Mascara – Black ($13.99), since it gives a lot of volume to our eyelashes while it nourish them at the same time.

Now that our hair looks perfect and our skin and eyes are ready, it is time for the lipstick! Don’t doubt on wearing red! It is definitely the color of the season. The “Live It Up” tone from bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick ($16.99) goes perfect with the Holiday Look we have shown you!

Now that you’re all ready, you’ll start catching everyone’s attention! Remember to always wear the shades that go best with your skin. Happy Holidays!

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.

The Ultimate Evening Beauty Routine

Nighttime is the right time to add a few key beauty products to your routine. While we love the shimmery shadows, colorful lip glosses, and brilliant blushes that bring our daytime regimens to life, it’s what happens at night that makes the biggest difference in our skin’s condition.04ce89131d05804b71d38687e4209625

 

That’s because the skin repairs itself overnight, and increased regeneration and renewal mean you’ll wake up to a brighter, healthier looking complexion. You can ramp up this process and give your skin an even greater boost by adding a few key overnight products to your routine. Here are a few we love.

 

Dermalogica Age Smart Overnight Repair Serum ($41.99) is the stuff you’d dream about if you weren’t slathering it onto your skin before catching a few winks. It’s packed with nourishing argan and rose oils that revive tired skin, stimulate cell turnover, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time.

 

SkinCeuticals Renew Overnight ($41.99) could be the BFF your dry skin has been searching for this entire time. Smooth it onto skin after cleansing for best results: you’ll reap the benefits of its 10% hydroxy acid, which lightly exfoliates away dead skin while leaving behind a softer, smoother finish.

 

Dermalogica Clear Start Breakout Clearing Overnight Treatment ($16.99) is a must if your main concern is persistent acne. It’s lightweight enough to use regularly, and it’s packed with extracts of cucumber, green tea, and lavender, which work together to soothe irritation and minimize redness. Over time, you’ll see fewer blemishes and ruddy areas will appear calmer and feel smoother.

 

Dr. Brandt Glow Overnight Resurfacing Serum ($51.89) is one of the most powerful anti-aging treatments available. It contains time-released retinol, a potent ingredient that is known for its anti-aging properties. It also helps reverse the development of dark spots, sloughs away dead skin cells, and smoothes out rough areas in need of a little extra TLC.

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.

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.

Safe Travels!

la-roche-posay-sunscreen

At the top of every shopping list is a quality broad-spectrum sunscreen. Enriched with potent antioxidants formulated to combat harmful free radicals, La Roche Posay Anthelios 60 Body Milk Sunscreen ($25.99) comes out a winner every year. This fast-absorbing emulsion provides protection from dangerous UVA and UVB rays while strengthening your skin with Cell-Ox Shield. This powerful combination of sun filters protects against cell damage while reducing your chances of skin cancer and premature aging due to sun exposure.

 

 

bareminerals-pop-of-passion A pop of color on your lips is so essential at this time of year. While cooler weather is all about dramatic, vampy shades with a come-hither approach, spring gives you the opportunity flaunt lighter, brighter hues. One to try is bareMinerals Pop of Passion Lip Oil-Balm ($14.99), a luxe formula that’s just as decadent as it sounds. Infused with nourishing vitamin E and hydrating passion fruit seed oil, it drenches lips with moisture while leaving behind a hint of color.

The deeper into spring it gets, the less your hair is impressed. Whether dealing with high humidity or torrential downpours, almost any type of weather situation spells potential disaster for your normally lovely mane. Take matters into your own hands with Blow Pro Weather Girl Anti-Frizz Serum ($17.93). Forming a protective shield over your strands, this lightweight formula combats frizz while adding a healthy, shiny finish.

bliss-ingrown-eliminating-pads

 

Whether you’re planning a spring break getaway or a family vacation, you may suddenly find yourself with a hairy dilemma. If shaving your bikini line leaves you more than a little uncomfortable, you need to nip that issue in the bud – and stat. A box of Bliss Ingrown Eliminating Pads ($9.29) works wonders. It contains powerful alpha- and beta-hydroxy acids that work to gently but thoroughly exfoliate skin. (Remember, this is key when you’re removing bikini hair!) Say farewell to those pesky bumps and enjoy smoother skin as you laze by the pool.

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.

CELEBRITY SPOTLIGHT: AMERICAN ULTRA PREMIERE – KRISTEN STEWART

kristen stewartFierce. That’s what we would use to describe Kristen Stewart’s beauty look at the premiere of her movie American Ultra.

She look effortlessly cool and exuded a punk rock vibe. The main event?

Her cat eye.

Inspired by Edie Sedgewick and the playsuit by Zuhair Murad that Stewart wore, makeup artist Jillian Dempsey made the usual cat eye bold and graphic.

The rest of the look was kept demure – nudes and mattes – to keep the focus on the eyes and the great playsuit.

Her hairstyle was touchable and tousled sealing this look together.

#GetTheLook:

Extend the flick by bringing it further out towards the brow. Use bold lines and blend for a thicker look. (Beauty Tip: If you’re looking for high pigmentation, use a black shadow to intensify it.)

Add a swipe of eyeliner along the waterline to help frame the eyes.

Apply a subtle amount of blush and keep your lips nude.

We love this look for a party since there’s no worry about having it smudge!

#WeWantToKnow if you would try this look. Tag us and let us know!

 

Quick Beauty Tip – From Lipstick to Lip Gloss!

quicktip-DIY-LipColor

Have you ever bought a lipstick color that you thought would suit you better as a lip gloss? Well you’re in luck! We have the solution for you.

What you will need is:

  1. Lipstick
  2. Toothpick
  3. Vaseline or Petroleum Jelly
  4. Double Boiler (or 2 pots that fit into each other)
  5. Stove  (NOTE: If you are under age please have a parent help or supervise you 🙂 )
  6. Contact lens case or an empty gel liner case.

First, fill your double boiler with water in the bottom container or fill the bigger pot with some water.  Bring the water to a simmer. Then, get your lipstick and twist it until the whole thing shows. Use your toothpick to cut the lipstick into the other pan. Grab some Vaseline/Petroleum Jelly and put it in the same pot. The more you use, the sheerer it will be. Put the pot into the boiling water and watch it melt. When it has completely melted, pour out the contents into the contact lens case (great to travel with) or in the empty gel liner case. Put it in the freezer so it can cool off and voila! you have your new lip gloss 🙂
