2017 Beauty Resolutions: Products to Help You Stay on Track

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!

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. With this added benefit, there’s no reason to skip this essential step any longer—your skin will look amazing by the end of the month!

 

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.

Solution: COOLA Eco-Lux Sport Continuous Spray SPF 30 ($30.99)

Not only is wearing sunscreen a smart habit, but it’s also potentially a life-saving one. Why risk the chance of developing premature wrinkles, age spots, or even skin cancer? This spray-on sunscreen makes application a breeze. 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. With additions like algae, cucumber, and strawberry, it’s not unlike a healthy cocktail for your skin. Even better is its refreshing citrus mimosa scent—it’s a crisp, summery, sweet fragrance everyone you’ll love to wear.

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. Even if you don’t have time to curl up with a good book, enjoy a lazy cup of tea, or take a nap, you can add some small details to your day to change your overall outlook. 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. The Sultry Spice fragrance is a lovely blend of bourbon vanilla, orange, neroli, and cypress, yielding a warm, cozy scent that’s reminiscent of an embrace.

Make Up for Cleopatra/Gypsy look

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!

Get the Look: How to Achieve Sexy Tousled Hair

Do you ever stop in your tracks when you see a woman with an absolutely glorious mane? I know I do—especially when that hair is casually tousled to perfection. It’s that look that’s so undone and so unfussy that somehow it just seems like the style to have. Do you have what it takes to pull off that chic, beachy hair? Of course! Here’s how to make that tousled look yours, with a few products from TheBeautyPlace.com.

Start with clean, dry hair. Second-day hair can be easier to style, but if you’re doing that be sure to apply some TIGI Rockaholic Dirty Secret Dry Shampoo ($8.99). Just massage it into your roots to soak up excess oil and buildup.

Now it’s time to get started on your glamorous beach style. Apply a spray specifically formulated to give your hair that telltale texture, such as Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Renewal Beach Spray ($14.95). It contains sea salt, which lends your hair that lively look. Simply spritz it on all over and scrunch gently with your fingers. If your hair needs a little extra boost, apply it to your roots and lift your hair slightly to increase volume. (Bonus: You can use this directly on wet hair, too; just spray on and let it air dry!)

 

tigi-foxy-curls

 

Next, bring those waves to life with TIGI Foxy Curls Contour Crème ($11.99). This highly effective emollient does several things at once: it reduces frizz, smoothes wayward strands, resists humidity, and holds your waves in place.

To create beach waves with this product, rub a nickel-sized amount in between your hands. Separate your hair into sections, roping them off piece by piece into tight coils simply by twisting with your hands. While these coils press against your head, use your coated hand to scrunch them firmly. Then release.

And that’s it—no need to finish with hair spray or other styling products, or you risk losing that lovely texture and playful wave that makes this look such a summertime standout. You can find all of the products you need, plus more summer beach finds, at TheBeautyPlace.com.

Get the look : 2016 Met Ball Gala Edition

It’s the couture event of the year, drawing the biggest celebrities of the moment, all decked out in the most unusual, avant garde garb imaginable. Yet there was so much more to the Met Gala this year than the out-there fashion (although everyone is definitely still buzzing about Madonna’s barely-there getup, Katy’s Tamagotchi, and Kanye’s eyes).

The one area almost everyone stood out was in the beauty department. Bold and fearless, the makeup from this year’s Met Gala Manus x Machina theme conjured up wild, daring looks with a metallic bent. Make some of these styles your own with a few pieces of beauty booty from our vast selection.

Taylor Swift stunned in a shocking Louis Vuitton dress with a snakeskin-like finish. What better way to complete the look than with head-turning lipstick? Her grungy take on glam was punctuated by a vampy pout. Make it your own by slicking on Tigi Cosmetics Perfect Lipliner in Couture ($12.99) to achieve a pop of edgy color.

Does anyone exude glamour quite like Cindy Crawford? The beloved supermodel stood head and shoulders above the rest, hitting the red carpet in a slinky, floor-length silver gown and smoothed down, center-parted hair. To achieve a similar look, control frizz and windswept strands with Joico K-PAK Smoothing Balm ($13.42). You’ll look just as chic – even if all you’re wearing are your tried-and-true jeans and a white tee.

Lady Gaga never fails to stun with her enigmatic looks. This year’s Atelier Versace ensemble was no different. She complemented the look with big hair and thick eyebrows, both overtly reminiscent of the 1980s. Don’t fear the thick brow; when it’s perfectly groomed, it has the power to completely transform your face. Use the twist-up bareMinerals Frame & Define Brow Styler ($14.99) to mimic this courageous look. The included brush helps blend in the rich, dramatic color.

It’s not easy to pull off cranberry-toned eye shadow. Yet when done right, it can serve as the perfect finishing touch for a golden dress. Jemima Kirke showed how it’s done, flaunting an ornate Chanel gown and berry-kissed eyelids. You can emulate this look by applying Youngblood Pressed Individual Eye Shadow in Bordeaux ($15.99) to your lids. Finish with strong black eyeliner to round out your devilish look.

If ever there was a smoky eye to be envied, it was that of Olivia Wilde at this year’s Met Gala. The pregnant actress paired her stunning Michael Kors Collection gown with statement jewelry from Jennifer Fisher and heavily metallic eyelids. Packed with shimmery grays and blacks, her lids were so dramatic they almost upstaged her dress. The Glo Minerals Metallic Smokey Eye Kit ($23.65) has everything you need to achieve a similar look. (Tip: Use a wet brush to achieve maximum color payoff.)
