How To: Make Your Eyes Look Bigger

Just a few simple tweaks to your makeup routine is all it takes to emphasize your eyes! Big eyes appear youthful, wide-awake and healthy. We aren’t all born with oversized peepers though, and that’s where some artful makeup tricks come into play.

You can instantly wake up tired eyes and give eyes a lift with this white and pink pencil.

How to Wear Hyper-Charged Blush

While it’s been the norm to wear just a pop o flight blush for years, the trend recently has shifted to a bolder, more intense look. It’s not for the timid, but it turns out anyone can wear a bright blush when it’s applied the right way—and in the right color, of course. Here, are the best shades to wear, how to pull off that deeper hue, and how to ensure that that the rest of your makeup doesn’t compete with the color.

 

The real key to pulling off those brighter-than-bright shades that look a little alarming in the packaging is to use a cream formula. Given their malleable consistency, they’re much easier to blend into the skin, and you can easily tone it down just a touch if you feel you’ve been a bit too heavy-handed with your application. And if you happen to want more color, you just need to tap a bit more onto your cheekbones to achieve the desired look.

 

So what’s the best way to accomplish this? You need to play with texture. Cream formulas don’t sit well if they’re applied over powder, so bear that in mind if you’re tempted to layer it over powder blush or even a powder foundation. The goal is to move from one creamy consistency to another, so that the two work together instead of against each other.

 

Of course, not all cream blushes are the same. The key is to select a formula that is truly creamy—one that doesn’t skip and bump as you attempt to rub it into your skin, and that leaves your complexion glowing with a healthy flush. We’re big proponents of Youngblood Luminous Crème Blush ($20.99) for that reason. Its oil-free formula is extremely light and airy, and it blends beautifully into the skin.

 

Don’t be taken aback by the devilishly dark hue in the pot—it looks incredibly fierce, but once applied it’s easy to bring down to a more natural (yet very noticeable) level. The idea is to work your way up to the point where hyper-charged is totally hyper-normal for you. That’s why a cream formula is so genius—it builds up nicely and creates beautiful definition.

 

To achieve the best results, we suggest a tool like bareMinerals Angled Face Brush ($17.99). Its slightly geometric cut allows for more precise application to the areas you really want to cover. Begin by applying color to the apples of your cheeks. Blend in a slightly circular motion, taking the brush upward and away from your cheekbones to your temples. This creates a slight “C” configuration that appears the most natural. Be sure to blend like crazy to achieve a soft flush.

 

What if powder is your formula of choice? No worries at all—the genius of Tigi Cosmetics Glow Blush ($12.99) is that it’s fairly foolproof. Remember to go light with the initial touch, because this is a heavily pigmented product that doesn’t demand hard-hitting application. We love using wider brushes with powder products, as they leave behind the kind of impish glow that is usually only seen on magazine covers. The Jane Iredale White Fan Blush Brush ($12.99) is an outstanding choice for its broad bristles and ability to pick up just the right amount of product.

 

After running it over the powder, tap away any excess and swirl away onto your cheekbones. Again, use a light hand to begin, and feel free to build it up after the first application. Remember that the brush is your friend—the fan silhouette is specifically designed to produce a softer, more natural look. Yet we’re after a hyper-charged complexion, remember? So repeat the process twice if you want to really amplify that color even more.

 

What good is all that hard work if the color doesn’t last? The beauty of wearing brighter blushes is that they have a tendency to stick around a bit longer. That said, you can prevent fading by applying Jane Iredale Balance Hydration Spray ($25.99) as your final step. Not only will it lock your makeup in place, but it also helps moisturize and retain a fresh appearance all day long. You’re guaranteed to have the best skin in the place thanks to your brilliant glow!

Everything You Need to Perfect Your Eyebrows

You and your eyebrows have been through a lot together. There’s that now infamous junior high photograph of your unibrow. The overplucked arches you rocked in high school. Maybe the adventurous attempt to grow them out 80s-style in college. Whatever your brow history was and your current brow game is, you’ll find everything you need to perfect your eyebrows today at TheBeautyPlace.com.

Every woman needs a great pair of tweezers. The industry gold standard is the Tweezerman Slant Tweezer ($18.99). Made with a stainless steel tip, it’s designed to precisely grip individual hairs without irritating skin. Be sure to squeeze firmly as you bear down on the hair, and then pull swiftly. You’ll be amazed at the clean finish that’s left behind.

 

What if you make a mistake and over-pluck some brows? Hey, it happens to the best of us—you’d be hard-pressed to find a woman who hasn’t accidentally gone a little overboard during a brow grooming session. To the rescue comes the Youngblood Brow Artiste Kit ($28.99). Available in four color sets, the kit includes two pressed brow powders, a tinted wax, a double-sided brow brush, and a pair of tweezers. Use the powder to fill in those bare spots. The wax is exceptional for taming unruly hair and adding just a hint of tint at the same time.

If your main concern is just unruly brows, keep in mind that it’s better to have more hair than less. You run the risk of waiting a long while for those brows to grow back. Try a brow gel, such as this clear formula from Glo Minerals ($12.99), to sculpt brows into place and achieve a sleeker appearance. Enriched with nourishing vitamins and green tea extract, it also pampers the delicate skin in the brow area for a double dose of benefits.

 

Another way to tame especially uncontrollable brows is with a pair of scissors. The Tweezerman Brow Shaping Scissors and Brush Set ($16.59) is designed for this very reason. Instead of tweezers, you’ll use the scissors to deftly trim long brow hairs and precisely shape your brows to perfection. Use the included brush to test your work as you trim. Simply smooth your brows into shape after every snip until you’re satisfied with their shape. The key is to take it slow—if you rush, you run the risk of overcutting.

 

It’s not unusual to develop irritated skin after tweezing the area. Use a gentle treatment, like Anthony Logistics Cool Fix Rollerball Lip and Brow Formula ($14.29), to immediately soothe and nourish aggravated skin. Since it’s free of fragrances and parabens, it’s safe to use on even the most sensitive skin types, and can even be used after waxing to speed the healing process.

Get the Look for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is one of the most wonderful days of the year for beauty junkies. Whether or not you’re part of a duo, you’re guaranteed to fall in love with the fabulous selection of pretty pinks and reds at TheBeautyPlace.com. Shop for date night, for a special friend (Valentine’s Day can easily be GALentine’s Day for your BFFs!), or for your very special self, and enjoy these picks that are destined to make this Valentine’s Day the best yet.

Give the gift of perfect skin! The Clarisonic Mia 1 in Electric Pink ($97.79) is designed to reduce impurities that may contribute to troubled skin. With regular use, it diminishes the appearance of pores, helps eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, and smoothes the complexion to leave behind a more radiant finish. If you’re a little lazy about your skincare routine or know someone who is, this is the ultimate kick needed to get into the habit—and see real results quickly.

You’ve always been told not to brush wet hair, but things have changed with the advent of the Wet Brush Detangle in Punchy Pink ($7.99). Not only is it sure to be the cutest thing on your vanity, it’s also guaranteed to be one of the most useful. Use it to detangle wet or dry strands by simply running it through from your roots down. It’s designed specifically not to damage, and it won’t tug or break your strands. Instead, it makes hair even more manageable and easier to style. So you can rock that glam Valentine’s Day ‘do you’ve been envisioning.

When better than date night to sport flushed cheekbones? Achieve the look with Tigi Cosmetics Glow Blush in Brilliance ($15.99), a warm pink with a golden finish. The result is natural, colorful, and effortlessly pretty—it’s not unlike the glow you might experience after jogging around the neighborhood. In a pinch, you can even use this color on your eyelids to brighten up your entire look. The formula is light, but you can build it up easily for a more intense finish.

Wanted: A creamy lipstick with a stay-put formula that you can slick on and go. Found: Jane Iredale PureMoist Lipstick ($19.99), which ticks all of the boxes and goes well beyond expectation to deliver gorgeous results. It’s available in dozens of colors, but if you’re feeling especially festive you might want to try Margi, a brazen, no-fuss red that will probably turn a few heads. If you love the Valentine’s Day color spectrum but want to play it a bit safer, try Lucy, a soft, juicy pink that flatters nearly every skin tone.

The warm, alluring scent of vanilla adds the perfect finishing touch to your Valentine’s Day routine. At this time of year, a thick, nourishing moisturizer is practically law, and we think the Bliss Vanilla + Bergamot Body Butter ($21.69) is an essential that really stands up to the challenge. It delivers lasting hydration and is loaded with free radical-busting vitamins. It also exudes a light, pleasant scent that combines a hint of vanilla with sweet almond. It lingers but isn’t overpowering, and your skin will feel amazing.
