How To: Ace The Red Smoky Eye Look!

It’s official! — red/pink eye shadow is the new neutral. With stars like Ruth Negga, Lily Collins, and even Queen Bey turning up in pink eyeshadow, pink blush and bright red lips, the combo is proving to be a real stunner — and a refreshing departure from the typical red lips and black, winged liner pairing we see this time of year.

Though it’s a risky shade, it can be surprisingly easy to pull off with the proper placement and blending skills. Choosing the right shade depends on your skin tone, and experimenting with the color base will help make sure you choose the right shade of red for you. However, to create this look, the Tigi Cosmetics HD Quad Eyeshadow ($19.99) has the perfect red tone that goes with almost every skin tone, they also go on smooth and ensure long-lasting wearability!

Also, don’t forget you’ll need to add some orange to the corners to make it a little softer and less dramatic. The Glo Minerals Elemental Eyes Collection ($33.99) this palette includes eight eyeshadows that will help you to perfectly get the smoky red look.

 

After you applied and blended the eye shadows, define the entire eye with a brown eye pencil, lining the upper and lower lash line so no skin is showing. Actually, we have the perfect product for that! Check out the Tigi Cosmetics Perfect Eyeliner ($11.99) this pencil easily glides onto the eyelid without stretching the delicate skin around the eye.

 

To get this perfect look, apply a few coats of volumizing mascara. The more, the better! bareMinerals Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara – Intense Black ($17.99) creates larger-than-life lashes. This mascara helps lengthen, thicken, and separate lashes for volume you can see.

 

Last but not least, an outstanding red smoky eye look needs to come along with tons of highlighter! Jane Iredale In Touch Highlighter ($20.99) illuminates skin and adds a glow to any look. Shine bright babe!

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.

 

The Must Have Products In Every Gym Bag

It’s a bit of a challenge to haul yourself to the gym before sunrise, but more often than not you get it done. What you do post-workout, though, is just as important as actually getting to the gym and completing your hardcore regimen. That’s because all that exercise has a tendency to do a number on your hair and skin. You don’t necessarily have to shower at the gym, but you should pack your gym bag with a few of these very essential items to take your workout game to the next level.

No matter your hair type, you’ll probably have some sweat lingering on your scalp after your workout. Macadamia Professional Style Extend Dry Shampoo ($23.99) is a game-changer in the ever-burgeoning world of dry shampoos: it smells amazing, plumps hair up at the roots to provide some much-needed volume, and resists the usual powdery mess that is so typical of most of its counterparts. It contains hydrating argan and macadamia oils, both of which nourish your strands without weighing it down.

Those nightmare stories about breakouts that develop after a workout are no joke. Nip the problem in the bud by cleansing your skin with a powerful product, like Murad Clarifying Wipes ($15.99). They’re formulated to combat blemishes, remove dirt, sweat, and debris, and limit your skin’s excessive oil production. Swipe it over your face and neck after a workout to achieve an instantly fresh complexion.a274d5b420c9639472cd7a27e88fd0f0

To wear before, during, and after: Bliss Fabulips Glossy Balm ($11.99) absolutely nails it with an impressive formula that keeps lips continuously hydrated. It’s made with a hyper-moisturizing blend of shea butter and vitamin E, both of which deliver the goods on contact to leave your lips soft. There’s even a hint of mint to leave your breath smelling fresh. Dry air in the gym can really do a number on your lips in no time, so it’s a good idea to keep something like this on hand.

You don’t need to apply a full face of makeup after that fabulous workout session. Chances are you’re already sporting some pretty rosy cheeks, but if you want to boost your complexion while you’re running an after-gym errand, apply some Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain ($16.99) onto your cheekbones and call it a day. This is all you need to achieve that natural glow that mimics your skin’s innate beauty, and the twist-and-go formula is perfect for on-the-go touch ups.

Who actually wants to stow all of this stuff in an oversized gym bag and rummage around for it? What you need is a cute case to tote it in style, like this TIGI Cosmetics Bag ($1.99). An unbelievable deal, it’s sized just right for all of your essentials, and you can stick a few extras in there, too—think travel deodorant, hair ties, and a comb. P.S. Starting this week if you spend over $175 on SkinMedica Products you can receive a gift bag with four travel size SkinMedica products valued at over $105, that would be great additions to your gym bag.

a320f0d81ecea4f176abea6b67004157As we welcome the new year, it’s time to put aside the bad habits—you know the ones—and replace them with some real, solid, actually-doable resolutions. When it comes to beauty, there are some places we all naturally tend to skimp: maybe it’s that little issue we have with removing makeup without fail every single night, or that kind of unsettling decision we make to let nail polish chip away on its own.

At TheBeautyPlace.com, we realize life gets in the way—which is why we’ve collated a few of our favorite products that will make it easy to make and keep your biggest beauty resolutions for 2017. Here is everything you need to stay on track!

ff6ce36cfd8731c60d0b03d7913e1912

Resolution: Remove my makeup every night

Solution: Murad Clarifying Wipes, $15.99 or Jane Iredale Magic Mitt $13.99

How easy life would be if we could just wave a wand and watch the makeup magically disappear into thin air. The next best thing could be these wipes, which come 30 to a package and are infused with nourishing ingredients that do far more than justremove cosmetics, dirt, and debris. They also soak up excess oils and help normalize your skin. The more you use them, the clearer and brighter your complexion will look.

Resolution: Keep my manicure fresh

Solution: OPI Euro Centrale Collection My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours, $7.99

The problem with manicures and pedicures is that they kind of don’t last forever. That’s unfortunate for those of us who are too busy to sit down and remove those last remnants of color, but actually pretty cool too because it allows you the opportunity to play around with so many different shades. Enter this nail color: a fiery, sexy hue that’s primarily red, yet injected with an orangey undertone that gives it a warmer feel. You can wear thisanywhere, at any time of year, and because it’s so dark you’ll want to remove the chipped bits as soon as possible. What better way to stay on top of your nail game?

Resolution: Stop damaging my hair with heat

Solution: Style Sexy Hair 450 Headset Heat Defense Setting Spray, $9.99

There may have been a time when you resolved to completely eliminate heat styling products from your regimen. If you’re a slave to your blow dryer, though, or you can’t actually envision life without your flat iron, then you absolutely must make sure you’re protecting your hair before you use them. This setting spray keeps your hair safe from temperatures up to 450 degrees, so that you can freely dry or straighten without fear of damage, like breakage and brittleness. It also reduces frizz and adds a healthy, shiny finish, so your hair will look amazing all day long.

 

Resolution: Clean my makeup brushes

Solution: Jane Iredale Botanical Brush Cleaner, $13.99 or bareMinerals Quick Change Brush Cleaner 3.7 oz$15.99

One of the biggest beauty faux pas out there is something most of us are guilty of committing: not washing our makeup brushes regularly. It can be a difficult habit to settle into, primarily because it takes a bit of time for brushes to dry. Make this process just a little more convenient with this spray, which helps brushes dry more quickly. It contains extracts of grapefruit, plus seaweed conditioner, to soften synthetic or natural hairs and rinse away gunky buildup from your makeup. It’s free of parabens, too, so individuals with sensitive skin don’t have to worry about dealing with reactions.

It’s water resistant for up to 40 minutes, and is enriched with antioxidant-busting, organic ingredients that combat the signs of aging and drench skin with hydration.

Resolution: Make myself a priority

Solution: John Masters Organics Roll-On Fragrance, $19.99

Carving out some much-needed “me” time can be difficult when you’re bogged down with responsibilities of work, family, friends, and household.

It’s the little things that count, after all, and applying some of this fragrance to your pulse points will serve as a reminder that you’re treating yourself to something special and indulgent.
