5 Sunscreens to Try This Spring

It’s essential to wear sunscreen daily, but when you spend hours soaking up the sunshine during spring and summer it’s particularly important not to skimp on this important step. Just as crucial is finding a formula that is effective. Here are five great choices we’re loving just in time for the start of the season!

  1. La Roche Posay Anthelios 60 Body Milk Sunscreen,

4 Spring Beauty Trends & How to Get the Look

It’s a new season, and that means there are a slew of new beauty trends to watch. If you’re ready to make the most of spring, consider these fabulous looks that we scouted on the spring/summer runways.

The Bold & Beautiful Lip

From radiant pinks to show-stopping reds, there was no way to miss the brilliant shades of lipstick that turned heads on every catwalk. The key, though, was in their less meticulous application. It wasn’t the precision that made these looks special, but the soft, almost blurred effect that lent the face a more casual, soft appearance. You can make that look your own by investing in a sheerer product, like Glo Minerals Sheer Lipstick, to elevate your pout without that heavily drawn-on effect.The Hint of Sparkle

Glitter, shimmer, everywhere! The sparkles lent models ethereal looks that felt soft, natural, and elegant instead of unapproachable. You don’t have to coat your eyelids with glitter to make sense of this trend, either—even a subtle take on the look can elevate your beauty routine in the best possible way. Try something that is easy to include in your daily regimen, like bareMinerals Highlighter Stick . Swipe it onto cheekbones for an instant glow that nicely complements your skin all season long.

 
The Romantic Hairstyle

While sharp bobs and quirky braids are two highly popular looks this spring, the other end of the spectrum shows the beauty of pure romance. It was tough to avoid the delicate curls, the wound-up braids, and the Victorian-era stylings that created balance for the otherwise edgy, modern ensembles on the runways. A great hairbrush is key to getting each style right—try Bio Ionic BoarShine Paddle Smoother Brush  to smooth strands and elevate your shine.

 
The Pretty Pastels

If you’re not about to slick on a coral lipstick and don’t want to coat your eyelids in electrifying hues, you’re in luck—pretty pastel shades were just as present, if not more so, on the runways. These shades touch on the lighter side of the spectrum and provide you with a spring-fresh way to capitalize on some of the season’s sweetest products and most unexpected shades. Now is the time to experiment with the greens and roses you might not otherwise wear. Pick up a couple of Tigi Cosmetics HD Eye Shadows  to perk up your eyelids.

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!

 

3 Winter Beauty Products You Need to Survive the Season

If you live in a particularly chilly part of the country, no doubt you’re missing the comfort that only springtime sunshine and cozy summer can bring. The way winter wreaks its unique brand of havoc on everything from lips to skin can be traumatic, especially if you’re prone to irritation, have sensitive skin, or deal with frizzy hair on a regular basis. Here are three key products that are designed just for those winter beauty emergencies—the situations that require a little something extra to see you through the rest of the season without a hitch.

For Irritated Skin

It’s not unusual to develop a dry complexion even if your skin is normal. You may notice an increase in patchy, irritated spots anywhere from your cheeks to your undereye area to your nose. That sort of discomfort usually
can’t be mitigated by your usual moisturizer—the one you put on beneath your makeup. Instead, you’ll want to load up on a product like Avene XeraCalm A.D. Lipid-Replenishing Balm , which is an advanced formula designed to target those problematic spots and deliver just what you need for consistent relief. It’s even safe to use on skin exacerbated by eczema and atopic dermatitis, two conditions that can become aggravated by falling temperatures.

For Irritated Eye Areas

You may be surprised to feel small bumps beneath your eyes. While your normal concern is probably puffiness or dark circles, this is an added issue that isn’t normally on your radar. The SkinCeuticals Eye Balm  is designed to combat the worries that plague your undereye skin particularly during this time of year. It’s ideal for aging skin, which is thinner and therefore more susceptible to irritation. As it is, your undereye skin is particularly delicate—so it can only benefit from a product enriched with emollients that leave the area softer and continuously hydrated.

For Chapped Lips

It’s sad but true: our lips are usually the first to show signs of winter’s ravages, along with our hands. That’s why it’s important to upgrade your moisturizing game at the turn of the season. If you haven’t already started using something hyper-hydrating, turn to ToGoSpa Organic Lip Balm in Organic Love . This is a lush, feels-amazing-to-the-touch product enriched with organic virgin coconut oil and African shea butter. Together, the duo work to nourish on contact. The moisture lasts, lasts, and lasts—and that’s the key to persistent comfort throughout the season.

It’s that time of the year again! Whether you need to bulk up on your cold weather beauty loot or just want to add something extra to your routine to take care of that pesky dryness, you’ve got a great opportunity during out Winter Beauty Sale. It kicks off this Saturday, January 26, 2019. Snag a few items for yourself and prepare to face the rest of the season in comfort!

5 Body Products Everyone Needs in the Winter

Winter has a tendency to take its toll on the skin. Even if you aren’t typically dry or sensitive, the harsh, cold air can create uncomfortable tightness, itchiness, and scaliness. To combat these problems, you’ll need to swap your usual products for a few emulsions formulated with specific nourishing ingredients that soothe and protect the skin. Here are five we love for the season.

Fix Your Hands

With excessive hand washing—something many of us do throughout cold and flu season—comes the
tendency for rough, dry hands. In more severe cases, your knuckles may crack and even bleed. The trick is to find a product that does more than simply coat it with a little moisture that comes off when you next wash your hands. Avene Cicalfate Hand  is designed to create a protective barrier that locks out the aggravating effects of winter without leaving your hands sticky or greasy. Used regularly, it will make a visible difference in the condition of your skin.

Scrub It Up

Even if you don’t typically exfoliate your skin, winter is an opportune time to start. In order to reap the rewards of any moisturizing products that you use, your skin needs to be free of flakes and dryness. Use a product like John Masters Organics Raspberry & Blood Orange Body Scrub  at least three or four times a week to enjoy a smoother, softer canvas that’s more accepting of your body creams and lotions. This formula is made with sugar and raspberry seeds, which make it gentle enough for most skin types. Bonus points for the gorgeous scent!

Add Rich Moisture

A generic body lotion that you tap into your skin during spring and summer won’t do much if you’re suffering in the winter. Upgrade your moisture game with something richer, creamier, and more protective, like Peter Thomas Roth Mega-Rich Body Lotion . It’s packed with nourishing vitamins B5, C, and E, all of which work together to heal irritation. The nourishing formula sinks right into the skin without leaving you sticky, so you can get dressed quickly.

Treat Your Baths

There’s more to winter skin care than simply hydrating your skin. If you take regular baths, make the most of that time by treating the water with a conditioning product, like Dermalogica Hydro-Active Mineral Salts. The combination of soothing mineral salts and seaweed gently slough off dead skin cells to reveal the softer skin beneath. And because of its enzymatic content, you may even notice a slight glow when you’re done with your soak. It also boasts a fragrant spice scent.

Use Some Oil

Some body oils are capable of doing anything, from smoothing frizz to soothing dryness to healing irritated cuticles. A product such as John Masters Organics 100% Argan Oil  is as versatile a taskmaster as anything you could imagine—it’s able to handle all of the above and so much more. Use it to soothe freshly shaved skin, or put it on before you apply lotion to lock in some extra moisture.

A Guide to Wearing Matte During the Holidays

Although typically associated with shimmer and glimmer, winter is also a great time to break out your most adventurous matte hues. Richly saturated lips and deeply colorful eyelids set the stage for a beautiful cold-weather look that’s appropriate for everything from holiday season parties to The Nutcracker showings at your local theatre. Thinking of experimenting with matte for the first time? Here are some important tips to keep in mind.

Make a Statement With Your Eyes

It’s usually the aforementioned shimmery shadows that make the boldest statement. But when applied properly, even matte eye makeup can transform your look into one that is stunning and seductive. Think in terms of your agenda. If you’re headed out, it’s more than appropriate to rock a deep, smoky eye and complement the look with bold eyelashes. Start by priming your lids with bareMinerals Gen Nude Eyeshadow Primer . Smooth the cream on and watch it transform into a matte powder before your eyes.

Then it’s time to dip into your favorite colors from the Jane Iredale Eye Shadow Kit  in Naturally Matte. Dust the medium shade onto your lids, using a light hand so that you can build color gradually. Then add some dimension by working the darkest color into the crease. Extend that color to the inner third of your eye and blend it just slightly upward. Apply the lightest shade to your brow bone for an eye-popping look. Don’t forget to add a few generous coats of mascara!

Give Your Skin a Little Boost

The right matte products can make a world of difference in how your complexion looks. The key is to select formulas that are designed specifically for your skin type. If you have dry tendencies, for example, seek out items that are enriched with hydrating ingredients to bring out the best in your complexion. The Revision Skincare Intellishade Matte SPF 45 is an excellent starting point. The moisturizing product dries down to a flattering matte finish and leaves just a hint of color on the skin.

If you don’t want to bother with foundation or like using a setting product as a final touch, consider Glo Minerals Loose Matte Finishing Powder . The translucent product is easy to dust on with a fluffy brush, and is expertly formulated to combat oily skin and prevent pesky shine from breaking through in the middle of the day. The best part is how flawless your skin will look after application—and for hours after.

Add a Pop to Your Lips

If the holidays aren’t the right time to add a dash of crimson to your lips, then there will never be a right time. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, add a matte version of the color to your repertoire. The hues provided in the bareMinerals Go Bold or Go Bare Trio Matte Lip Kit  are especially fitting for this time of year. You’ll have your choice of a pale mauve-pink that’s ideal for the work day, a bold violet to punctuate your night-out looks, and a seductive oxblood red that breaks all notions of timidity and gives you a perfect excuse to finally rock red lips before the year ends.

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.

How To: Ace The Red Smoky Eye Look!

It’s official! — red/pink eye shadow is the new neutral. With stars like Ruth Negga, Lily Collins, and even Queen Bey turning up in pink eyeshadow, pink blush and bright red lips, the combo is proving to be a real stunner — and a refreshing departure from the typical red lips and black, winged liner pairing we see this time of year.

Though it’s a risky shade, it can be surprisingly easy to pull off with the proper placement and blending skills. Choosing the right shade depends on your skin tone, and experimenting with the color base will help make sure you choose the right shade of red for you. However, to create this look, the Tigi Cosmetics HD Quad Eyeshadow  has the perfect red tone that goes with almost every skin tone, they also go on smooth and ensure long-lasting wearability!

Also, don’t forget you’ll need to add some orange to the corners to make it a little softer and less dramatic. The Glo Minerals Elemental Eyes Collection  this palette includes eight eyeshadows that will help you to perfectly get the smoky red look.

After you applied and blended the eye shadows, define the entire eye with a brown eye pencil, lining the upper and lower lash line so no skin is showing. Actually, we have the perfect product for that! Check out the Tigi Cosmetics Perfect Eyeliner  this pencil easily glides onto the eyelid without stretching the delicate skin around the eye.

To get this perfect look, apply a few coats of volumizing mascara. The more, the better! bareMinerals Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara – Intense Black creates larger-than-life lashes. This mascara helps lengthen, thicken, and separate lashes for volume you can see.

 
Last but not least, an outstanding red smoky eye look needs to come along with tons of highlighter! Jane Iredale In Touch Highlighter illuminates skin and adds a glow to any look. Shine bright babe!
