Holiday 2017 Gift Guide

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and we’re excited to celebrate with a slew of get-gorgeous beauty products designed to make you look and feel your best. We aren’t just limited to cosmetics, skin care, and hair care, either—beauty doesn’t discriminate, after all. We’ve also got glam goodies for the home. Most importantly, there’s something for every single person on your list. Here’s what we’re loving this holiday season.

 

 

For Luxe Travels…

Perfect for jetting off to Europe during spring, the John Masters Organics Essential Travel Kit for Hair and Body ($24.99) contains everything needed to get through the trip in style. Tucked inside the sleek zippered pouch are two-ounce bottles of geranium/grapefruit body milk, geranium/grapefruit body wash, lavender rosemary shampoo, and citrus/neroli detangler. Not only will they feel fabulous, they’ll also smell incredible.

 

For Upscale Cleansing…

Who knew makeup removal could be such a posh experience? With the Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Pure Luxury Cleansing Butter ($35.99) in her arsenal, she’ll never go to bed without washing her face again. Made with nourishing turmeric, hydrating chamomile, and gentle honey, this lovely blend melts on contact to effectively remove all traces of makeup, debris, and impurities. It even looks gorgeous, something that can’t be said for the boring tubes crowding her makeup cabinet.

 

For Bathing Beauties…

Showering is infinitely more enjoyable when there’s something wonderfully scented awaiting you. That’s why Bliss Blood Orange + White Pepper Soapy Suds ($26.99) is a guaranteed gift winner. The body wash is not only packed with uplifting notes of crisp citrus and awakening spices, but it’s also perfect for brightening up those tired, bleary-eyed mornings when nothing seems possible without a shower. This is the ultimate lift-me-up, and the scent is versatile enough for both men and women to enjoy.

 

For Makeup Junkies…

What do you give the makeup junkie who has everything? Try the Youngblood Glowy Cheek Essentials Kit ($39.99). It’s filled with everything she needs to achieve a warm, healthy, bright complexion. The set includes a creamy blush in a rich shade of coral-pink, plus a blush brush and a radiant moisturizing tint designed to drench the skin with hydration while also leaving behind a hint of natural, luminous color. During winter, it’s one of the easiest ways to brighten up.

 

For Happy Homes…

Whether for the hostess or the new homeowner, the NEST Fragrances Luxury Votive Gift Set ($40.99) is the ultimate surprise in every way. Packed inside a gorgeous gift box are six mini votive candles in bamboo, grapefruit, Sicilian tangerine, ocean mist/sea salt, cedar leaf/lavender, and Moroccan amber. Each votive is housed in a sleek black container that adds a touch of subtle sophistication to any room, from the kitchen to the bedroom to the bathroom.

 

For Skin Saviors…

We all know that one person who tries every single new skin care product on the market. The NuFACE Mini Facial Toning Device ($136.99) is the best possible surprise for anyone obsessed with a great complexion. On contact with the skin, the portable machine delivers gentle microcurrents that work to effectively reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. With regular use, the appearance of the skin’s tone is also improved. The set includes a primer gel to make it easy to use.

 

For OMG Hair…

If you or someone you love absolutely covets magazine cover-worthy hair (and really, who doesn’t?), the Bio Ionic Whisper Light Dryer ($104.89) is practically essential. It delivers high-powered heat in shorter-than-average time, meaning that drenched hair is no match for this wonder tool. In addition to its quick-dry functionality, it also performs in relatively quiet mode. The ionic feature ensures that hair feels softer and stays in better shape, even with regular usage and exposure to heat.

Dealing with Stubborn Summer Hair

Managing your hair during summer requires a different level of engagement. It’s almost like you have to set aside everything you know about hair care in order to fully deal with what the heat and humidity do to your usually glorious mane. With these game-changing products from TheBeautyPlace.com in your arsenal, though, you can expect a change for the better. Here’s what your hair needs to get through the season in style.

With all the time you’re spending outdoors, in the pool, or at the beach, chances are your hair is taking a beating. Product and chemical buildup from chlorine can leave hair dry, heavy, and dirty. Bio Ionic Agave Healing Oil Clarifying Shampoo ($38.99) is a two-in-one powerhouse: it smoothes hair with hydrating oils while deep cleaning at the roots to rid hair of oil and debris. For best results, use it once or twice a week to keep hair in great condition all summer.

Although your hair may not feel particularly parched during summer, it is susceptible to dryness because of exposure to sunlight and chlorine. A lightweight moisturizer, like Blow Pro Damage Control Daily Repairing Conditioner ($15.97), can make a visible difference. It contains softening shea butter to keep your hair healthy throughout the season, without weighing it down.

 

 

a1f70b9cc9a38642fea8058136f3c905It’s no surprise that your hair gets greasier during summer. Dealing with oily locks is all about the products you use. One of the most effective is Tigi Bed Head Candy Fixations Sugar Dust ($9.49), which soaks up oil at your roots and simultaneously boosts your hair to deliver some much-needed volume. It’s perfect for those days when you can’t shampoo, but need a quick lift. (Bonus points for the juicy grape fragrance!)

Just as common during summer is frizz. You know the drill—you style your hair at home, love how it looks before you leave, and are appalled when you catch a glimpse of yourself in a shop window five minutes later. Enter Tigi S Factor True Lasting Colour Hair Oil ($19.59). Run this nourishing oil through damp or dry hair to tame your strands, keep pesky flyaways under control, and add a touch of shimmer, too.

 

Whether you’re headed to a poolside barbecue or a wedding, it’s pretty important that your hair looks just as fabulous outside as it does when you leave the house. Enter Big Sexy Hair Weather Proof Humidity Resistant Spray ($16.99), a stay-put hairspray that’s easy to comb through and doesn’t leave hair sticky. There’s no lingering residue either, and it’s ideal for keeping your formal updos, bouncy curls, and other looks under control—no matter how hot it may be out there.

CELEBRITY SPOTLIGHT: AMA’s 2015 – Selena Gomez

Did anyone else get a vampy feel from Selena Gomez at the AMA’s?

We did!

She looked amazing on the red carpet with a sunset, smoky eye to complement her red dress.

Her copper, red infused eye makeup paired with hazel contacts drew us in and left us in awe.

#GETTHELOOK

Step 1 Prime eyelids. Using a brightening primer like this one will help add dimension to the eye.

Step 2 Light cream color eye shadow set the crease and brow bone area. We like Jane Iredale’s Oyster.

Step 3 Blend into your crease a copper eye shadow. Jane Iredale’s Triple Eyeshadow – Triple Cognac has shades that can be used. Be sure to focus on the outer area and winging it outward.

Step 4 Blend the edges with a clean brush.

Step 5 Use a red shadow to build definition on top of the copper hue. We like the darker shade in TIGI Cosmetics – Flawless.

Step 6 On the lid, layer another red shade. You can play with the types of reds you would like to use. In Selena’s look, there are many red-wine colors used. Youngblood in Bordeaux can be used.

Step 7 Make sure all the shadows are blended. Use the same shadow as in Step 6 to line the lower lash line. Line the inside of the lower lash line with a burgundy eyeliner or black if preferred.

Step 8 Use a volumizing mascara and voila!

PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT: Advanced Active Radiance Serum from MURAD

262d3b95964c66275c5a8ea4d144b211

You can fight fine lines and wrinkles all day long, but uneven skin tone is actually the number one indicator of age. And unless you’ve successfully shunned the sun your entire life, dark spots will eventually be a concern. On the bright side, we have a ton of complexion-perfecting products for you! Whether you have a collection of brown spots invading your forehead or you’re just looking to get in front of the issue, there’s a skin-brightening solution for you. Vitamin C is an antioxidant with numerous anti-aging benefits. It boosts collagen and elastin production, while inhibiting tryosinase, an enzyme involved in melanin production. Vitamin C is well tolerated in most people, but the one drawback is that, like all antioxidants, it’s highly unstable. Meaning, it loses effectiveness when exposed to light, heat, and air. So store your products in a cool, dry place, and pick ones that have a pump delivery system (like the Advanced Active Radiance Serum from Murad) opposed to squeeze tube, which allows air to creep in.
