BEST GROOMING ESSENTIALS FOR 2015

Good grooming will help you feel like a million bucks and look like a million bucks. With an array of products to select from in drugstores, retail stores and online stores, the options are seemingly endless!  With men’s grooming and fashion  on the rise, TheBeautyPlace.com editors have selected the top grooming products for 2015.

Face Cleansers

Steer clear from bars of soap. The best facial cleanser is one that does not contain soap and that won’t strip the skin of essential oils that keep your skin healthy looking. Anthony Logistics Algae Facial Cleanser is the top product for this category. Ideal for dry, sensitive or mature skin it is a gentle cleanser that won’t dry skin.

Moisturizers

Use it. Period. Moisturizers help ensure skin doesn’t age prematurely and prevents blotchiness and dryness. A daily moisturizer that will not clog pores is ideal. Anthony Logistics Oil Free Facial Lotion hydrates skin without leaving an oily residue. To protect against wrinkle-causing UVA rays, moisturizers with SPF protection are suggested even for cloudy days. Anthony Logistics Oil Free Facial Lotion SPF 30 soothes and tightens skin while providing sun protection. Murad Anti-Aging Moisturizer SPF 20 is great for those with acne-prone skin.

How To Shape Your Eyebrows Like A Pro

2293e7c47a6d9e2e04330fed4dd17228

The secret to a perfectly shaped eyebrow can be summed up in 4 points… or rather 4 lines: the beginning, the highest point of the arch, the end and where it all comes together.

1. The inner edge of your brow should line up with the outside of your nose.

2. The highest point of your arch should be where the diagonal line extending from the outside of your nose to the outside of your pupil would hit.

3. The outer edge of your brow should taper off at the point where your eyebrow and the diagonal line from your nose to the outside corner of your eye would intersect

4. The bottom of the inner and outer edges of your brow should line up horizontally.

EYEBROW TOOLS:

Spoolie brush: The spoolie brush is really the unsung hero of beauty tools. It’s a must for separating eyelashes and removing mascara clumps, and you can also use it on your brows to brush the hair up and away.

Small scissors: After you’ve brushed all the hairs in one direction, snip any strands that are noticeably longer than others. And always cut across the top of the brow, never down.

Brow pencil or powder: Before you begin to pluck, give yourself a guide. Fill in your browswith a brow pencil, and pluck away only the strays.

Tweezers: The most important tool is, of course, a sharp pair of tweezers.

Armed with these tools and tips you can achieve shapely brows.

New Year – New Look

714b675b27f96df2241003031c429366

There’s something about the turn of a calendar year or a change in season that makes everyone crave dramatic change, especially when it comes to physical appearance. But you don’t have to dye your hair red or max out your credit card to reinvent your image—smaller changes can add up to a big impact. Here are 4 almost-effortless ways to update your appearance. They’re quick, inexpensive and unlike the many trendy diets the season brings, require nearly zero willpower.

1. Try A Different Part
Experimenting with a new look can be as simple as flipping it to the opposite side of your head. The simple switch can add new volume at the roots and alter the way the front sections frame your face. Changing your part is an especially great way to get long hair out of a rut without sacrificing any length. Move your part before bed using a comb and a bit of styling cream, then put on a wide, no-slip elastic headband. Slip folded tissue beneath the band to keep it from leaving crease marks in your hair.

2. Red Lipstick
Don’t be scared off by its boldness—the truth is, red is one of the most universally wearable lipstick shades, and it’s a classic way to add both impact and femininity to your look. In general, reds that are more blue-based are flattering on all skin tones, and they make your teeth look whiter. When shopping for one, trust your instincts. Choosing a red lipstick is like choosing a great piece of jewelry—you should go for the one you’re immediately attracted to.

3. Modernize Your Manicure
Your nails may seem like minor details, but they say a lot about you. For example, oval-shaped tips painted with pale-pink polish are pretty, but a little predictable. Try this of-the-moment twist instead, and watch your nails suddenly spark attention: Instead of rounding off the tips, file them straight across and then round off just the corners, creating what manicurists call a “squoval” shape. When it comes to color, the chicest choices right now are warm brownish-beige shades, like OPI “Over The Taupe” Or, try one of the new palest-gray hues, such as OPI “Ballet My Point Exactly,” which is soft and subtle, but still thoroughly modern.

4. Get Glowing
Get your skin glowing! Foundation isn’t the most thrilling makeup topic, but it makes a huge difference to your overall look. To get the most flawless finish, take your application technique up a notch with Youngblood. The subtle shimmer in this foundation gives skin a youthful, dewy look, and by reflecting light, helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and other flaws.

Quick Grooming Tip – The Right Cut

quicktip-menhair

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The right cut can make all the difference. Men and women have many different ways in which to give their appearance a much needed boost. Just as there is a right shade of foundation for your skin or a certain style of watch that matches your suit, there is a cut for every face shape.

We typically follow the celebrity trends. What is trending amongst celebrities serves as inspiration for our next look or hairstyle. Yet, what we forget is that those styles are tailored to their face shape.

We did some research and found some helpful tips from the CEO of the Grooming Concierge, Craig the Barber. Thanks Craig!

First, note the different types of shapes. Men can have pear, triangular, oval, round and square faces.

Pear shaped faces are identified by the broad jaw line and narrow forehead. Round haircuts work best for this shape. Make sure the sides are equal in length to help balance the face.

Triangular faces can be quickly identified by the narrow chin. If you don’t want to have others focus on the wide hairline, keep your hair short.

Oval faces allow for more versatile cuts. Men with oval faces can try any hair cut and length because of the face’s symmetry.

Round faces benefit with haircuts and hair styles that have more length. With a round jaw line and sometimes a round hairline, longer hair aids in lengthening the face.

Square faces, like the oval faces, can work with any haircut. Typically, we suggest staying away from flattops (think Simon Cowell from American Idol), it will just make your face look more square.

Next on your list gentlemen: Find the perfect suit.

Tutorial Tuesday – DIY Teeth Whitening

When asked what you would like to improve about your smile, what comes to mind? Whiter teeth perhaps, brighter smile, straighter – the list can go on.

Teeth whitening procedures belong to the cosmetic arena of dentistry. According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry a brighter smile reflects youthfulness, warmth, happiness and good health. In a survey they facilitated, 74% of adults felt that an unattractive smile hurt a person’s chances for being successful in their career.

TT-diyteethwhitening

Tooth whitening is suggested to be done by your dentist but there are also many home tooth whitening systems available. Even so, professional supervision for teeth whitening is still preferred to ensure safety and effectiveness.

When we are not able to do either of the above or prefer a cost-effective natural remedy, we turn to DIY tutoruials like this one! With toothpaste, water, hydrogen peroxide and baking soda you can begin to notice the difference in your smile within weeks.

Ingredients:

  • One Teaspoon of Baking Soda
  • Small Amount Toothpaste
  • Half Teaspoon of Water
  • One Teaspoon of Hydrogen Peroxide

Materials:

  • Container
  • Spoon/Mixer
  • Toothbrush

Instructions:

STEP 1: Mix the baking soday, toothpaste, water and hydrogen peroxide in the small container. Make sure the ingredients are thoroughly mixed and look like a paste.

STEP 2: Apply to toothbrush and brush for about two minutes and rinse. We suggest doing this at the end of the day.

That’s it! Use the mixture once a week until you see the shade of whiteness you would like. Once it is achieved, use this teeth whitening method once a month to maintain that bright, white smile in full force.

Stay beautiful!

Quick Grooming Tip – The Perfect Shave

quicktip-perfectshaveLooking for a smoother shave? Use the following tips to ensure your shaving routine is the best yet!

When to shave:

The best time to shave is after a hot shower. The steam will soften your hair and the steam will open your pores

How often:

You can shave daily if you keep your skin moisturized. The plus of shaving is that it helps exfoliate your skin by removing dead skin cells. If your skin gets irritated, shave less frequently.

Before:

Use pre-shave oil and make sure you lather the shaving cream or gel with warm water soften even more so the coarse hair.

Tools:

There are multiple options for what type of blade or razor to use. Angled multiple-blade razors are meant to glide easily around the curves of your face while catching any stray hairs. Electric razors and shavers are better for sensitive skin.

Shaving Cream or Shaving Gel:

It depends on your skin type. Normal skin type can use either. Gels are better for sensitive or dry skin while creams are better for oily skin. Look for moisturizing ingredients and make sure it is alcohol free. Check out this DIY Shaving Cream as an alternative as well!

To reuse or not:

Replace disposable razor blades and cartridges weekly and clean electric razors/shavers with alcohol after each shave.  If your blades are dragging or pulling on your skin that time has come to let go of that blade gentlemen. It has been said that being limited to a razor of three blades does the job. Two if your skin is sensitive.

Aftermath:

Use an alcohol-free aftershave and/or moisturize your skin. In the long run, this will create a huge difference in your skin health.

Tutorial Tuesday – DIY Shaving Cream

The key to a perfect shave can be argued to be the razor, the pre-shave oil, the amount of times, the type of shaving product – anything.

Let’s focus on the product you use. Many men experience irritation from the ingredients found in shaving creams especially those that are alcohol-based.

Sensitive skin? No problem. This homemade shaving cream is chemical and alcohol free and does not contain irritants.TT-DIY-Shave-Cream

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You will need:

  • 3 TBSP Coconut Oil
  • 2 TBSP Sweet Almond Oil (olive oil can serve as a substitute
  • 4 TBSP Raw Shea Butter
  • 6-10 drops of essential oil (citrus or peppermint can help to awaken the senses)
  • Double-boiler
  • Mixer
  • Bowl

Step 1: Use the double-broiler to melt the shea butter and coconut oil at the lowest heat setting. Stir occasionally.

Step 2: Once completed, remove from heat. In a bowl, add the almond oil and essential oils. Stir to combine completely.

Step 3: Put bowl In the refrigerator and allow the mix to harden.

Step 4: After it hardens, use a mixer (electric or hand held) to whip until the mixture has the consistency of frosting.

Step 5: Let it sit and transfer to an airtight container.

P.S. If you have these skin types, use the following type of shaving product:

  • Sensitive or dry skin – pick shaving gels as they are more hydrating than the creams
  • Oily skin – pick shaving creams for the rich, protective lather
  • Normal skin – any works but look for moisturizing ingredients (like glycerin)
