Get the Look: 2018 Grammys Edition

To die for? Oh, yes. This year’s Grammy Awards were more than just a celebration of music, but also a tribute to sultry, seductive beauty and adventurous, out-of-the-box looks. We tapped into the genius minds of beloved makeup artists to find out exactly how to make some of those fabulous looks yours—with a few of your favorite products from TheBeautyPlace.com.

Rita Ora

Rita Ora dazzled the red carpet with her Ralph & Russo dress. The songstress is known for her brow-raising fashion, and this year’s style was a seeming homage to sexy old-world starlets who knew exactly how to bring the drama. The stunning complement to her sexy black dress was a bold plum lip that paired bea
utifully with her flawless complexion and luminous glow. Make it your own just like this:

Go heavy on the lips. We love Glo Minerals Lipstick ($12.99) in Cabaret for its bright finish and hydrating formula. Use it to perk up your pout and give your face the awards-
worthy look you’re envisioning. Of course, dramatic eyes play well into that old Hollywood look so many of us love. Jane Iredale’s Eyeshadow Kit ($38.99) in Smoke Gets In Your Eyes contains a breathtaking combination of brightening sheers and dramatizing darks to really play things up.

Another key product that makeup artist Kathy Jeung relied on was highlighter, which helped enhance Ora’s already fabulous complexion with a lit-from-within glow. Swipe Jane Iredale In Touch Highlighter ($20.99) in Complete over cheekbones and brow bones to accent areas that the sun naturally hits. You’ll look fresh even on the longest nights! A pop of color helps boost your fresh factor, too—Jeung used a cream to warm up Ora’s face. We love Youngblood Luminous Crème Blush ($20.99) in Luxe.

 

Janelle Morae

 Taking a cue from Twiggy, makeup artist Jessica Smalls gave Janelle Monae a truly unique red carpet look. The star’s stunning floral tux alone was enough to turn heads, but it was her glowing makeup that really got the attention of beauty aficionados. Here’s how to do it yourself

Even from afar, her gleaming skin was visible. To achieve the look, Smalls steamed Monae’s skin before mixing foundation with a luminizing product and applying with a wet sponge. You can achieve a similar appearance by spritzing Glo Minerals Moist Hydration Mist ($14.99) over your makeup—this helps refresh your look and illuminate your visage. Dust Tigi Cosmetics Bronzer ($33.99) on temples and cheekbones to contour and add a sun-kissed glow.

And turquoise eye shadow? Definitely. That was the highlight of Monae’s gorgeous look, which featured a bright water line that made her entire complexion pop. You can emulate that look by applying the Flirt color from Tigi Cosmetics HD Eyeshadow Palette ($22.99) wet to line the lower lashes. Finish with minimal lips by smoothing Jane
Iredale PureGloss Lip Gloss
($22.99) in Soft Peach over your pout—its shimmery finish is instantly glamorizing

Quick Beauty Tip – Make Perfume Last All Day

quicktip-make-perfume-lastIn order to make your perfume last all day be sure to spray it on your wrists, behind your ears, the base of your throat, inside your elbow and behind your knees! On top of choosing the perfect spots, go against your usual tendencies and don’t rub the perfume in. Rubbing the skin together after application compromises the smell. Just spray on & let your skin take it from there!

If you want to carry perfume with you, try a travel size travalo perfume atomizer. It is small enough to be TSA approved & fit in any handbag.

Tutorial Tuesday – Gel Eyeliner

You will be shocked at how easy it is to create your own gel eyeliner without shelling out the extra cash. Hold any lighter to a typical pencil eyeliner for 2 seconds. Be careful not to exceed this time as eyeliner melts fast! Let the liner cool a bit and then apply. It will glide on extra smooth! TT-Gel-Liner

Fall Makeup Trends

  • The virtual opposite of the orange-y eye look is this purplish, brown style. Combine eyeshadows to create a perfect shadow on your lid to pull this one off. This will go with any fall outfit and can be dressed up or down.

Get Her Look – Sarah Hyland

Sarah Hyland plays the cute little airhead on Modern Family. The reason we’re so intrigued by her look is because she is in her 20’s and plays a teenager. Plus, she looks younger than her character even is! She must be doing something right. Here is how to shave years off of your age with makeup:

1. Exfoliate. We have said this a million times before and we will say it again. Exfoliate to give your skin a fresh, polished look. 2. Tone. Add a toner to remove any remaining impurities. This will ensure your skin appears smooth and flawless. 3 Moisturize. Add moisture back into your skin. You will want this as a base before adding makeup. This will also give your skin the underlying glow that it needs to appear years younger.

4. Foundation. Use a tinted, moisturizing foundation as your base. This will start to give you some color while adding even more moisture. 5. Conceal. Use a brightening concealer under your eyes and to cover any dark spots or hyperpigmentation.  GTL-Sarah-Hyland-bottom 6. Eyeshadow. Use neutral tones for a younger look. The more natural you keep your colors the less heavy and aged your makeup will appear. 

7. Blush. Finish off your look with a pretty pink blush. Keep it super light to give your self a dewy, flush look. Darker blush can make your cheekbones look accentuated giving you an older appearance. 8. Eyeliner. Use eyeliner for your top lid only. Keep it off the bottom to keep your skin clearer. 9. Lipstick. Finish your look with almost nude lips. Be sure to  use a lipstick with natural oils so your lips stay moisturized.

Quick Beauty Tip – Fake Freckles To Look Younger

quicktip-frecklesEveryone associates a freckly face with innocent youngster. Faux frecks are achieved by applying normal foundation over the bridge and nose and on the tops of the cheeks. Then, draw large, light, and closely packed freckles with eyeshadow. You can place additional dots on your T-zone with a pencil brush and shadow powder. Of course, to make the freckles look as natural as possible, you should aim for a scattered effect. We can’t take all the credit for this though, we originally saw the idea on one of my favs: bit.ly/10EocVl

Tutorial Tuesday – How to use an eyeshadow palette

TT-Eyeshadow

Cosmetic companies do a great job of pairing stunning eyeshadow colors in a tempting palette. It is hard to choose one because they’re all just so gorgeous! When you make your decision and bring it home you have even more decisions to make… “how am I going to use all of these pretty colors on one eye?”. Here’s a simple tutorial – how to use an eyeshadow palette.

Use the lightest color as the base. Brush this color from the lid up to your brow. Use the darkest color in the crease of your eye. Use the accent color (in this case, the light pink) in the inner corner of your lid. Use the remaining color on your outer lid. Blend them together a bit. For long lasting eyeshadow, first apply a primer or eyeshadow base.
