How to Transition Your Skin from Winter to Spring

It’s that time of the year again. As you begin to swap your cozy coats and over-the-knee boots for lightweight cardigans and cute wedges, it’s time to rethink your skin care products. Daylight savings is this week (finally), and unless a last-minute winter surprise hits the forecast you can probably safely stow away the heavy-duty moisturizers and familiarize yourself with your warmer-weather favorites. Here’s how to make a seamless transition from winter to spring


Spring Clean Your Pores

Preparing your skin for warmer weather begins with a fresh canvas. Once or twice a week, swap your daily cleanser for a penetrating product formulated to purge oil, dirt, debris, and other impurities from the skin. Ingredients such as mud and clay are ideal for purifying the skin and dissolving oil that could otherwise leave your skin shiny for hours. We love Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud Cleanser.

Exfoliate Twice a Week

If you have dry skin, you may exfoliate regularly already in an effort to reduce those telltale flakes. Otherwise it’s worth adding a quality facial scrub to your routine to renew your complexion just in time for spring. Skin may appear a bit lackluster after months spend indoors in dry heat. A scrub revives your skin, boosts circulation, and leaves it softer, too. Try Glo Skin Beauty Pumpkin Enzyme Scrub  for a smoothing treat that smells great, too.

Try a Lighter Moisturizer

Unless your skin is extremely dry on a regular basis, you don’t need to stick with the same heavy-duty moisturizer that saw you through fall and winter. A lighter emulsion is just right for hydrating skin without leaving skin greasy. You can also easily wear makeup over these formulas. Try bareMinerals Smart Combination Smoothing Lightweight Emulsion  for instant softness without the weight.

Never Forget Your SPF

No matter what the time of year, it’s imperative to wear sunscreen to protect your skin from the ravages of potent ultraviolet rays. Be sure to select a broad-spectrum formula that combats both UVA and UVB rays to prevent both skin cancer and signs of aging, like wrinkles and dark spots. Remember to do this last—and make it a point not to skimp. If you’re short on time, try a moisturizing SPF product infused with a hint of color. We like Avene Complexion Correction Shield SPF 50+.

5 Key NYFW Beauty Trends We Love

The runways at New York Fashion Week were jam-packed with brow-raising, head-turning looks destined to transform our collective wardrobes. For all the amazing clothes and accessories, though, it was the beauty looks that truly took our breath away. From mesmerizing eyes to brilliant lips, here are a few of our favorites—and how you can make them work for you in the real world.

Pearlescent Finishes

In a week during which pearls were pressed into manicures, it seemed only fitting that the same pearlescent radiance appeared on model after model after model. In fact, the sheer, angelic illumination was often the star of the show, providing an uplifting and almost cosmic look to otherwise bare skin. The overarching theme is clean, simple, and softly elegant. You can make it your own by strategically applying bareMinerals BarePro Glow Highlighter  to brighten your complexion.

Glossy Eyelids

Nothing says runway-ready like a gleaming eyelid—but you don’t have to saunter down the catwalk to make this look work for you. As models at Tom Ford showed, it’s a saucy, seductive, often sexy look that may take some practice to pull off if you’re just headed out with friends. Make it easy with the PÜR Cosmetics 5-Piece Eye Polish Kit , which contains five vials of shadow infused with shimmery flecks. Try the navy hue tinged with a bit of the golden shade to emulate the sizzling smoky eyes spotted on the runway.

Ethereal Curls

Like something out of a fairy tale, the curls spotted at NYFW were enough to inspire even those with pin-straight locks. As always, it’s a matter of working with your own hair type—and faking it with the right tools and styling products if you don’t have waves or curls already. Amplify your tumbling mane with a product designed to define and add shine, like Curly Sexy Hair Curl Power Curl Bounce Mousse.

Electrifying Neon

Neon was one of the most dominant themes to emerge from NYFW. Seen on everything from clothes to beauty products, it charges your looks with a shock of brilliance—and it’s surprisingly easy to wear if you select the right shade. While there are highlighter-yellow and cyan eye shadows galore, you might have an easier time slicking on a pop of Jane Iredale PureGloss Lip Gloss  in Red Currant. It’s a juicy coral-red that energizes your look with serious color and shine.

Pretty Plums

Possibly the most-seen color on the runways was purple. The beauty of the trend is that it isn’t limited to a single variation of the shade. Whether you favor lilac, eggplant, or lavender, there’s a hue for you in the mix. For fall and winter, nothing elevates the drama and adds richness to your complexion more effectively than a deep shade of blush. We love Youngblood Crème Blush in Plum Satin  to achieve a shade that’s rich and elegant.

Speed Up Your Beauty Routine With These Time-Saving Picks

If it seems you’re always running a little behind schedule and wishing you could magically add a few extra hours to your day, you aren’t alone. The general chaos of life leaves us all a little overwhelmed. Usually those feelings arise early in the day, when we’re rushing to handle everything from getting ready to grabbing a bite to shuttling off to work. The problem? You want to do all of those things without sacrificing your much-beloved beauty routine. Fortunately, you don’t have to thanks to the advent of dozens of time-saving products designed to slash your beauty routine in half. Here are a few we love.

Foundation

On average, it probably takes you a few minutes to properly apply concealer and foundation, especially if you’re focused on covering imperfections. The PÜR Cosmetics 4-in-1 Foundation Stick changes that in an instant by putting everything you need into one sleek, swivel-up package. The creamy formula melds to a matte finish once it makes contact with your skin, providing a flawless finish that conceals dark spots, redness, and uneven tone. The formula is enhanced by anti-aging ingredients that promote a smoother complexion with regular use.

Eye Shadow

Are you sensing a trend here? Stick formulas make it easy to get ready on the go if you can’t avoid it, and they make it easy to apply your makeup with precision. Eye makeup can be tricky when you’re in a hurry, but the Glo Minerals Cream Stay Shadow Stick simplifies the process. It’s available in a multitude of hues that range from light to bold. We suggest washing the pale shade over your eyelids to wake up tired eyes, then adding a darker color to elevate the drama if you’re headed out after work

Highlighter

A healthy complexion looks bright, fresh, and radiant all day long. The beauty of makeup is that you can easily fake it if need be—and that’s what makes the Jane Iredale In Touch Highlighter so essential to everyone’s arsenal. This easy tool twists up to reveal a light, soft tone that lends the skin that enviable lit-from-within glow you covet. It’s perfect for waking up a sallow face, illuminating cheekbones, and accenting areas that you feel need a little life. It’s infused with nourishing moringa seed oil for a hydrating touch.

Lip Gloss

If only there were a product that made your lips look just a little healthier than their natural state. The famed quest for a “your lips but better” shade may just come to a halt once you give bareMinerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipcolor a try. Available in 20 colors, the collection proves that there’s a nude for everyone. The beauty of this gloss is in its ability to completely pull together your look in an instant. It glides on smoothly and dries to a natural, pretty finish that never feels drying.


Hair

Sometimes it’s the seemingly endless battle with our hair that takes up the most time. Shampooing, conditioning, drying, and styling all seem to take forever, and you don’t want to leave the house with what amounts to your own personal nest right on top of your head. What you need is an amplifying dry shampoo, such as Big Sexy Hair Volumizing, to plump up your roots while eliminating excess oil, dirt, and debris that amassed since your last shampoo. Bonus points for the refreshing scent!

How to: Get the Best Halloween Look with Just Makeup

With Halloween mere days away, it’s time to finalize your costume plans. The only problem? You aren’t quite sure what you want to wear. Thank goodness for makeup—that almighty tool that’s capable of transforming your look from plain Jane to plain fabulous in just minutes.

Here are just a few ways to get the Halloween look that you want—only with makeup!

Ice Queen

You don’t have to be a five-year-old to appreciate the ethereal looks spotted in Frozen years ago. You can easily make that magical look your own by icing up your lids, lashes, and brows with shimmery white hues. Make it work by running the Tweezerman Folding iLashcomb through your lashes first, setting the stage for a plush white mascara and allows your peepers to stand out. Add a generous dusting of Jane Iredale PurePressed Eye Shadow  in white to your lids and over your eyebrows. The result? Brrr! You look hot for someone so cold.

Easy Giraffe

Yep, we’ve moved from cheetahs to giraffes. And we’re absolutely here for it—it’s a fun, playful look that anyone can pull off using just a few key items. First, bring your eyes to life using copious amounts of black liner. Try a liquid formula so that it remains budge-proof throughout the night—we’re particularly loving the Youngblood Liquid Liner Pen . Then curl, curl, curl! Your lashes need to stand out because, well, you’ll never meet a giraffe without a serious lash game. Clamp down with Tweezerman’s Super Curl Eyelash Curler , and finish with multiple coats of bareMinerals Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara . Get those telltale spots using your choice of bronzer or body makeup. Don’t forget to add a pair of ears!

Zombie Girl

When else can you really rock bloody lips and dead eyes but Halloween? Make the most of the occasion by vamping up your makeup. Try a deep, rich lip color that saturates your pout with something brazen—think Youngblood Kranberry or Bistro lipstick . Get those dark, dramatic eyes by lining with TIGI Cosmetics Precision Black Eyeliner. Apply some false lashes to really elevate your look, then apply multiple coats of Glo Skin Beauty Lash Lengthening Mascara for extra oomph. Precisely applied pale makeup is the key to a seriously effective zombie look. We’re wild about Dermablend Flawless Creator  for its staying power. Finish with strategically applied reddish, dark, and gray color around your eyes, and a few drops of “blood” trailing from your lips down your neck.

Feeling adventurous? Let your imagination take control this Halloween! You’ll find an amazing selection of color cosmetics to help you achieve a look that’s sure to win “best costume” awards and turn heads all night. Whether you’re going for wild, wacky, or wondrous, you’re sure to find what you need at TheBeautyPlace.com.

 

What Image Skincare Product Is Right for You?

Treating your skin to quality products that are as effective as they are nurturing is essential to its long-term condition. Value and efficiency lie in the scientifically backed collection formulated by IMAGE Skincare. The brand is designed to make a visible difference—and it’s no surprise, given that it was developed by an aesthetician whose keen awareness and understanding of varying skin types is evident in every product in the line.

You’ll discover products that are tailored to different needs, from acne and aging to sun damage and rosacea. So how exactly can you navigate the line and select the ones that will do the most favors for your skin? Here’s what you need to know.

Acne

Dealing with acne can be a beast. You may go through product after product, eventually feeling like a guinea pig for every single blemish brand in existence. Bring those woes to a halt by adding the brand’s Clear Cell Salicylic Clarifying Pads  to your medicine cabinet. It’s infused with glycolic and salicylic acids, both of which tackle excess oil and help control the production of sebum in the long run. That’s key to preventing more acne from forming. The pads also reduce the incidence of clogged pores, leaving your skin brighter, fresher, and clearer with every use.

Dryness

Dry skin is tough to tackle, especially when you feel like you’ve gone through every heavy-duty moisturizer available. Once you smooth Vital C Hydrating Intense Moisturizer  onto your visage, however, you’ll notice the difference you’ve been hoping to see. It boasts a light, silky consistency that melts into the skin, leaving it buttery smooth and touchably soft. That’s key for anyone who deals regularly with rough patches that feel practically immune to hydration. This is the key to reversing the problem, and creating a smoother canvas.

Eyes 

How you treat your eyes today will impact how they look in the future. That’s never been more true than today, when excessive exposure to sunlight contributes to those advanced signs of aging. The key is to add a potent product to your routine, such as The MAX Stem Cell Eye . It’s designed to use day or night, and contains nourishing ingredients like plant stem cells, plus alpine edelweiss, which is thought to absorb the sun’s potent ultraviolet rays before they have a chance to do harm to your skin. It’s a major task for this little bottle of genius!

Aging

You’ve got your anti-aging routine down pat—or so you think. Maybe you’re invested in your cleanser, toner, and moisturizer, but chances are you aren’t properly exfoliating that skin as well as you thought. To the rescue comes the Iluma Intense Brightening Exfoliating Powder . It contains micro exfoliants that gently yet effectively slough away dead skin, revealing the smooth and bright surface beneath. It’s enriched with antioxidants, which combat those pesky free radicals that can contribute to the visible signs of aging.

Seasonal Skincare Swap

Real talk: we’re freaking out about fall. Although summer heat isn’t ideal for a full face of makeup, cooler weather can present a slew of skin concerns—especially for those who struggle with acne. For an easy, blemish-free transition, you’ll need to change up your skincare routine the same way you swap out your wardrobe. Here’s how:

Correct your cleanser: In the summer, we like reaching for heavy-duty cleansers that ensure salt & sand stay on the beach and out of our pores. In the fall, you’ll want to switch to something gentler like this PCA Skin Creamy Cleanser . Packed with beneficial oils like rosehip (a Kate Middleton favorite) and omega-6 essential fatty acids, this formula will remove dirt without stripping skin.

Peel away: Forget diamonds—chemical peels are your new best friend. While you should be careful not to over-exfoliate during colder months, you should add this Peter Thomas Roth FirmX Peeling Gel  to your lineup once a week. This gel uses a combination of pineapple & pomegranate enzymes that lifts away dry, dead skin to prevent clogged pores. Just be careful not to scrub too hard!

Tone and balance: After months of sun exposure, this Obagi Nu-Derm Toner  will help restore your skin’s natural pH level. Unlike most toners, this product features a natural astringent instead of alcohol, which can overdry skin. Aloe and calendula soothe & smooth skin as witch hazel tightens pores without over-drying your complexion.

Add a serum: Most people try to avoid extra oil in the summer, but it’s about to make a comeback. To build up your skin’s natural defense against the elements, we suggest using bareMinerals Eternalixir Skin-Volumizing Oil Serum. The calcium-rich concoction enhances your moisture barrier and fights signs of aging with nourishing botanical oils. Be sure to take this product down your neck, as well.

Thicken your moisturizer: Though it’s hotly contested, moisturizers should follow after serums! At night, show your skin some love with a generous coat of this  Peter Thomas Roth Camu Power CX30 Brightening Moisturizer . This product is loaded with a superfruit called the Camu Camu berry, which packs 30 times more vitamin C than your average orange. This is crucial during sun-deficient seasons to maintain collagen production and iron absorption.

Throw on a mask: If you’re in need of emergency hydration, it’s time for the GLAMGLOW ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment
. Having dry skin can be itchy and uncomfortable, so this mask was formulated to provide instant relief. Leave on for 10-20 minutes before going out, keep it on overnight, or slick on during a long flight to arrive glowy & soft!

Saying goodbye to summer is already hard enough—we hope this guide helps you winterize your routine with ease!

 

How to Get a No-Makeup Makeup Look For Summer

Less is definitely more when it comes to creating a no-makeup makeup look. That being said, you’ll still need certain products to achieve it. We’ve found the best seven beauty products that will get you a fresh face for summer that will endure even in the hottest of climates. Versatile and affordable, all of these products will become essentials in your beauty bag.

Concealer

Skip the foundation, and opt for a full coverage concealer instead. Dermablend’s Quick-Fix Concealer ($18.89) will give you all the coverage of a foundation without making it feel like you have a mask on. Use the stick concealer to cover everything from under-eye circles to blemishes to scars. Since it comes in a variety of yellow and pink tones, you’ll be able to pick your perfect match. With its smudge-proof SPF 30 formulation, this stick concealer will be your go-to during the summer.


Powder

If you can’t live without foundation, no worries! You can still use it—in powder form that is. Jane Iredale’s Amazing Base Loose Mineral Powder ($34.89) offers sheer to medium coverage so you can either apply it as a setting powder for the concealer or build it up for that extra bit of coverage. The water-resistant SPF 20 product diffuses the appearance of fine lines and pores all while concealing redness. Great for those with sensitive skin types, including those with eczema, acne, and rosacea.

Eyeshadow

For the eyes and brows, all that’s needed is a good eyeshadow palette like Jane Iredale’s Eyeshadow Kit ($38.99) in Daytime. The kit provides five neutral colors that work well for all skin colors. For a subtle, but noticeable highlight, apply the lightest color in the inner corners of the eyes, brow bone, and cheek bone. Apply the medium shade in your socket and underneath the tip of your nose for dimension. Apply the remaining medium to dark colors to your brows.

Mascara

To make your eyes really pop, use YoungBlood’s Mink Lengthening Mascara ($19.99). This long-wearing mascara doesn’t flake or smudge so rest assured it will stay put in the blazing heat. For the best results, apply the mascara close to the base of the lashes, then wiggle upward for maximum volume and length. Make sure to separate each lash for the most natural look.

Blush & Bronzer

Get that flushed look with TIGI Cosmetics’ Glow Blush ($12.99). The highly pigmented product appears dark, but it goes on sheer so you can easily and seamlessly blend it into the skin for a rosy glow. Same goes for BareMinerals’ Invisible Powder Bronzer ($26.99)—the baked bronzer gives a naturally radiant finish that is both buildable and multidimensional.

Tinted Lip Balm

Finish it off with lips that look naturally stained with BareMinerals’ Pop of Passion Lip Oil-Balm ($13.99). Ingredients like vitamin E and passion fruit seed oil deeply hydrate the lips while leaving behind a beautiful color stain that lasts. Initially applied the product is sheer, but you can layer it to achieve a full coverage glossy pout.

How to Get Rid of Dull Skin—Just in Time for Spring!

After a long winter, it wouldn’t come as a total shock if your skin seemed a little sallow and lackluster. Whether you spent months cooped up inside or just haven’t soaked up much sunshine lately, we have the solution for you. Here are our suggestions for eliminating that dull skin just in time for spring.

Start with an Exfoliating Product

No question about it: Dull skin needs exfoliation. The problem is that dead skin cells collect on the skin, disturbing the natural appearance of a healthy visage and instead contributing to the slightly washed out look you’re trying to avoid. Unless you get rid of the cells that don’t naturally come off on their own, you won’t be able to truly enjoy that healthy glow. Try La Roche-Posay Physiological Ultra-Fine Scrub ($15.99), a gentle exfoliate that minimizes buildup without causing irritation.

Brighten Up with the Right Cleanser

Don’t make the mistake of using the wrong product when you cleanse your face. Some are so harsh that they can cause dryness, while others just aren’t effective enough to target your specific concerns. Revision Skincare Brightening Facial Wash ($28.99) is formulated to rid your skin of impurities, dirt, debris, and makeup while smoothing rough spots. The result is a more refined complexion that glows.

Treat It with a Targeted Mask

Masks are everywhere these days, of course, and it might be overwhelming to choose the perfect one if your goal is strictly to get rid of dullness. To the rescue comes Peter Thomas Roth Brightening Bubbling Mask ($34.89), a deeply nourishing treatment that provides the kinds of results you’d expect at a spa. Simply smooth it on for a near instantaneous boost. It’s filled with free radical-busting antioxidants that leave skin looking more youthful and healthier.

Don’t Forget Heavy-Duty Moisturizer

While it may seem counter-intuitive to use a heavy-duty facial moisturizer when the weather is finally warmer, it’s actually what many of us need to rescue our skin from a season of complete dullness. The reason is simple: the more moisture your skin needs, the more tired and sallow it looks. Your skin essentially appears thinner and less lively, resulting in that less-than-healthy look you’re sporting. Try PCA Skin Collagen Hydrator ($28.99), which contains soothing almond oil, shea butter, and olive fruit oil. The trio pack a punch and deliver much-needed moisture on contact, giving your skin that healthy glow you’ve been craving.

 
Add Retinol to the Mix

Another reason your skin might be looking a little less than fab lately is because your body is producing less collagen. That’s one of the unfortunately natural downsides of aging, but there are tons of fantastic collagen-boosting products out there that actually work. One we love is PCA Skin Intensive Brightening Treatment ($55.99). It’s enriched with retinol, which helps protect your existing collagen and boost the production of new collagen—in other words, your skin will look a lot healthier if you use it.

The Beauty Tools You Always Need In Your Bag

You might find that carrying beauty staples like powder and lipstick are essential to maintaining your makeup look on the go, but including tools in your bag is just as important, if not more so! Even if it’s one of those days where you cannot be bothered with makeup, there are certain tools that come in handy when you least expect it. We found the five best tools from Tweezerman that will barely take up any space in your purse—and will save the day in unanticipated situations.

r a f a e l a . @rafaelaelia Instagram photos | WebstaBlender Brush

We know what you’re thinking—why not use a kabuki brush instead for powdering? While a bigger brush is good for dusting a light layer of translucent powder over freshly applied foundation, it’s not the best option when you need a quick touch-up. Tweezerman’s Blender Brush ($12.99) is the perfect size to get rid of any shine, blend blotchy eyeshadow, and dust away mascara flakes that may have fallen on your cheek during the day. Plus, if anything lands on your keyboard at work, you can easily dust it off with this brush. (Just make sure to wash it after!)

Point-Tip Tweezers

Considered the sharpest of all tweezers, these bad boys can grab even the tiniest of eyebrow hairs. Our favorite is the stainless steel Tweezerman Point Tweezer ($18.99) because they’re rust resistant and have the most precise points. Aside from plucking your hairs, these tweezers can be used for so many different things in everyday life. To name a few, you can remove splinters, clean debris underneath nails, and untangle delicate necklaces. As with a brush, we recommend cleaning it before every use.

Is it spring yet? Because I sure can’t wait for it to get here already. Give me all the bright colors, the sunshine and warm…Brow Scissors

They’re great for trimming your brow hairs, but they’re pretty versatile all around since they’re scissors. Tweezerman Brow Shaping Scissors & Brush ($16.59) are small enough to carry in your bag, but have large enough blades to cut packages, stray threads from clothing, and hangnails. The tweezers also come with a spoolie brush, which works well for removing any stubborn mascara smudges on your eyelids, exfoliating your lips, and calming down any of your fly-away hairs.

Magnification Mirror

Measuring at 3.4” by 0.4”, the Tweezerman Tweezermate 12X Magnification Mirror ($11.99) is as compact and practical as a portable mirror can be. With its optically correct 12X magnification feature, this sleek mirror works well for any precision tasks you need done while traveling. We’re talking tweezing to makeup application to contact lens insertion. It’s clear from edge to edge so you’ll be able to see everything up close and personal—you can practically examine every pore with this tool if you want!

Nail File

Last but not least, every woman needs a sturdy nail file in her bag. You never know when the edge of your nail will start to snag on everything, or—even more painful than a breakup—your nail breaks. Tweezerman Neon Hot Nail Filemates ($3.99) includes three colorful files in a travel-friendly size so you will always be prepared if tragedy strikes. You could also use it to rub away super glue on your skin and over pills on a sweater to get rid of fuzz. And as an added bonus, you can sharpen your tweezers with it by pulling it across the nail file a few times in the same direction.
