Your beauty collection is jam-packed with the hottest lipsticks, the most up-to-date skin care, the trendiest hair products. Can you say the same about your tool collection? At TheBeautyPlace.com, you’ll find an enormous selection of the key tools you need to achieve a gorgeous look every single day. Here are four tools of the trade you absolutely have to have.

beautyblender

If you do nothing else, purchase the BeautyBlender Original + Mini Solid Cleanser Kit ($20.99). This duo includes the genius teardrop-shaped makeup applicator that’s designed to minimize waste and give your complexion a flawless appearance. The rounded tip makes it easy to hone in on those problematic areas, like the corners of your nose and the inner corners of the eyes. The included cleanser is a solid substance that’s great to carry on the go—it removes excess residue and keeps your BeautyBlender pristine for longer (and it smells great, too!).

Ask anyone who maintains their brows at home: It can be tricky to get it right every single time. A good pair of tweezers can help! The Tweezerman Wide Grip Slant Tweezers ($15.99) makes it easier to achieve just the look you desire. The oversized grip provides a more comfortable tweezing experience, while the slant tip makes it easy to grip even the smallest, most stubborn hairs. (Bonus points for the fun purple color—it’s a great addition to any tool kit!)

A foundation brush is one of the most important tools you can add to your kit. The Glo Minerals Dual Foundation Camouflage Brush ($24.99) provides a great alternative to applying makeup with your fingers. This product hits the nooks and crannies beautifully, and the tapered end is ideal for expertly applying concealer beneath the eyes, in the corners of the nose, and other areas that don’t require a great deal of product.

It’s important to keep your makeup brushes clean, no matter how tedious a chore it might be. Jane Iredale Botanical Brush Cleaner ($13.99) makes it a bit more of a palatable process, thanks to its lightweight formula enriched with mild seaweed conditioner and grapefruit extract. It works on contact to wash away debris, oil, and grime that collect on brushes over time.

There’s nothing like a visit to the spa and a pampering pedicure. Let’s face it, though: sometimes life gets in the way, making it incredibly difficult to drop funds on a luxurious treatment. In the meantime, you can enjoy a DIY treatment with some help from the BioSwiss 5-Piece Pedicure Set ($7.95). It contains everything you need to achieve a gorgeous at-home pedicure, including nail clippers, a nail file, a nail brush, a pumice stone, and a pair of toe separators.

A great hairbrush is often the key to an amazing hair day. Just think about how awesome your mane looks when you leave the salon. It’s time to add your own high-end hair tools to the mix! The Bio Ionic BoarShine Brush Set ($37.99) includes BoarShine brushes in medium, large, and extra large sizes. Use them to achieve a smooth, sleek finish, add volume, and control frizz.

Don’t miss our Tools of the Trade sale, running from Saturday, Oct. 8 through Friday, Oct. 14. It’s a great time to stock up on all of the essentials you need for your tool kit!

Blondes Rock the Oscars: How can I get that hair?

J-Law aka Jennifer Lawrence seems to be just about everywhere from dating the lead singer of Coldplay to leading the charge in the Hunger Games and now rocking the red carpet with a Best Actress Nomination for Joy with hair that left us wishing we had the look!

With shoulder length locks with long layers, J-Law’s platinum blonde LOB (long bob) with golden highlights is not hard to achieve with the right products and can go formal or casual for whatever your life requires.

Snag the look by:

  • Start with straightening shampoos and conditioners.
  • Apply Strong hold gel while hair is damp (towel dried).
  • Blow dry and straighten each strand to complete the look. (Be sure to use a protective oil during straightening process.)
  • Tease it at the root to get some extra volume and set.

Cate Blanchett – She’s always been a blonde stunner but this short and classy hairstyle finished the Oscar look for Cate Blanchett. Nominated for her role in Carol, the Australian beauty chopped six inches off her blonde tresses that graced her strong jaw-line to create the sexy look that turned heads on the red carpet.

Transform the cool, choppy bob into a sleek, Oscar-quality do with a blow dry, a few curlers for volume and add texture with a texturizing finishing spray.

Rachel McAdams – Nominated for best actress for the movie Spotlight, Rachel McAdams seemed to want to show off as much skin as possible; from her thigh high slit in her deep green gown to her pulled back blonde hair to highlight the skin of her stunning face. Here are the steps to grab the look:

Saoirse Ronan Nominated for best supporting actress for Brooklyn, Ronan rocked a young and fun blonde style at this year’s Oscar celebration.

Quick Beauty Tip – Long Lashes!

quicktip-curl-your-lashes

Using a lash curler helps to open up your eyes and create more visible lashes. Everyone would like to have lashes that can make a statement. Well there’s a way to do that.

Before you curl, heat up your lash curler with your blow dryer or stick it under warm water for a few seconds. Test the temperature on your wrist so you don’t burn yourself! Similar to heating your curling iron to curl your hair; a heated tool will create a curl much more effectively that an unheated tool. So, a warm curler will give the effect of longer-lasting, noticeably curlier lashes. This trick works on false lashes, too!

Let’s Go Halvsies

It is no secret that our blow dryers and flat irons dry out our gorgeous locks! That’s why here at The Beauty Place we live and die for our hair masques, heat primers, and shine sprays. But lately we’ve come up with an even better technique. We like to call this “halvsies”. You save part of your hair from intense heat by only straightening half of it at a time!

Option 1: For pretty waves just iron halfway down from your roots. This will straighten the pieces around your face and head, but leave you with a natural look. The best part? Your hair iron will never touch your sensitive tips, therefore lessening the likelihood of breakage, and dry, split-ends.

Option 2: For lots of body only straighten the bottom half of your hair starting about 3 inches away from your scalp, depending on your length. The best part? You’ll get tons of body up top while rocking silky, straight hair on the bottom!

Smooth Hair with Macadamia Natural Oil Hair Products

Taylor Swift's signature curls are smooth and frizz-free.   Do you straighten or blow dry hair more than 4 times a week? Do you use hair color? Do you put your hair though any chemical processing?

All of the above leads to dry hair.

Dry hair is easily damaged and the results are split ends, poofy ends and unhealthy looking hair that is weak and easily broken.

What to put on dry hair:

Today’s Flash Beauty Sale includes the Macadamia Natural Oil Rinse, Deep Repair Masque and Hair Oil Treatment. These are your go-to essentials for whenever you wash or style hair that needs some TLC.

The Macadamia Natural Oil Rinse is a super-hydrating deep conditioner. It will smooth out poofy ends after 5 minutes. You will notice the results once you comb your hair. It works for all hair types and is ideal if your hair needs moisture. Use it daily to soften, moisturize and detangle hair.

The Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque is a hair reconstructor ideal for twice a week. This will be your ally in preserving your hair color after last week’s salon visit! It also helps to keep your hair smoother in between hair straightening. Use it twice a week and enjoy your super-soft hair.

The Macadamia Natural Oil Healing Oil Treatment is oil for your hair. You apply this hair treatment on damp hair before straightening with a flat iron or before blow drying your locks. The hair oil is perfect for using with any styling tool because it creates a barrier that protects the hair cuticle from losing its moisture. If your hair loses moisture, it dehydrates and looks dry. This hair serum or oil can be used by itself after washing your hair. Apply a nickel-sized amount to palms before using any styling tool or after washing on damp hair. Comb through and style away.

Macadamia Natural Oil Hair Products is a hair care line infused with Macadamia and Argan oils. It is exactly what you need to achieve the shiny, luscious hair that you spot on the red carpet!
