Get the Look: 2018 Oscars Edition

Another year, another Academy Awards in the books! Of course, while the ceremony may be over, the beauty looks remain the most buzzed about element of the show. Who did we love, and who made the biggest impact? Check out some of our favorite looks below, including a rundown of how you can make them your own.

Lupita Nyong’o

Oh, hey, Lupita. Not only did the actress look like a vision in pure gold thanks to he metallic dress, but her makeup won accolades for its fresh, ethereal glow. Makeup artist, Nick Barose, took inspiration from her flowing gown, which had a faint goddess-like vibe. He achieved the look by prepping her skin with a gentle serum and moisturizer before applying foundation with a damp sponge. A highlighter brought her cheekbones out, while a brownish-nude lipstick played up her pout. Her eyes were the true standout, thanks to the unexpected pop of blue that added leverage to the gold powder on her lids.
Make this look your own by nabbing the Tigi Cosmetics HD Eyeshadow Palette ($22.99). It includes shades of bright blue, gold, and taupe to give your eyes that glam-goddess look Lupita owned. Add a touch of Glo Minerals Dust 24k ($23.99) to your cheekbones, temples, and tip of your nose to bring out a natural glow. Finish with a swipe of bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Get Ready ($16.99) to warm up your smile.

 

Jennifer Lawrence 

Prep, prep, prep. That’s the secret behind Jennifer Lawrence’s head-turning look at this year’s ceremony. Makeup artist, Hung Vanngo, achieved the look using a potpourri of makeup from Dior after liberally preparing her skin with a luminous moisturizer. The metallic cat eye was devastatingly sexy, while the unexpected rusty orange lip played well with her gleaming bronzed cheekbones. So can you pull this off if you aren’t an Academy Award-winning actress who’s worked with every enviable leading man and woman in recent cinematic history?

In a word: yes. Start with bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 8.0 Palette ($36.99), which contains all of the shades you need to achieve the ultimate smoky eye. Use the metallic bronze to tone the look down if it’s a little too bold for your everyday look. No smoldering eye look would be complete without some eyeliner. We’re particularly crazy for Youngblood Incredible Wear Gel Liner ($13.99), which is a dewy formula that is easy even for beginners to apply. As it settles, it dries down to a bold, long-lasting finish. Mimic Lawrence’s warm glow by applying Glo Skin Beauty Blush in Spice Berry ($28.99) to your cheekbones, and finish with Jane Iredale PureGloss Lip Gloss in Hot Cider ($22.99).

Five Easy Ways to Retouch Your Makeup

Four hours into work, you head to the bathroom. As you look at yourself in the mirror, you’re baffled at how faded your makeup looks already. That “waterproof” eyeliner miraculously smudged and your forehead looks like an oil slick. Sounds familiar? Don’t let all that time and effort you put into your makeup in the morning go to waste. By following these few tips, you’ll save your makeup—and trick people into thinking you just applied it even though you’ve had it on for a solid 10 hours.

1. Take off that first layer of oil

Before even touching makeup, the most important thing to do is to remove excess oil on top of the skin. If you don’t and try to just powder your face, your makeup will actually mix in with the oil, creating a cakey mess. Using blotting sheets like Glo Minerals Blotting Papers ($7.99) will instantly absorb sebum without causing your foundation to look blotchy. Focus primarily on the T-zone, pressing gently to get rid of any oil.

2. Lose the remaining shine

Instead of turning to powder to mattify, use liquid! Sounds counterproductive, but there’s a new innovative liquid product that works so much better at mattifying your skin: Murad MatteEffect Blotting Perfector ($36.99). This on-the-go compact was developed by a dermatologist and contains a unique translucent formula that effectively gets rid of the shine while visibly minimizing pores. Feel secure knowing that for up to eight hours you’ll be shine-free wherever you go!

3. Spritz hydration spray on top

Now that you got rid of the bad shine, time for the good kind of shine. Get a youthful glow by spraying Jane Iredale Lemongrass Love Hydration Spray ($27.99) all over your face. Not only does the organic spray control oil production, but also it hydrates and conditions the skin. The lemongrass awakens your senses in the process, helping you relax and decompress from the day. Getting your skin to look like it’s radiating from within has never been easier.

4. Clean up any makeup smudges

As the day goes on, your makeup naturally tends to smear a little, even if all you do is sit at a computer. Keeping BioSwiss Paper Stick Cotton Swabs ($2.99) on hand will help you clean up any imperfections without disrupting the rest of your makeup. Just grab a swab and gently wipe away any lipstick or eyeliner smudges. The inner corner of your eyes can also collect gunk so check for that, too.

 

5. Reapply makeup and soften lines

The last step to reviving your makeup look is to touch up any makeup that might have faded away. Some of the most common areas include the lips, eyes, and any blemishes that may have popped up from underneath your concealer. With the BeautyBlender Micro.Mini ($15.99), you can quickly patch up of any of those spots. Simply apply a tiny dot of concealer on the area, pat it in with a clean finger, and smooth with a dampened Micro.Mini. For a finishing touch, use the sponge to blot any harsh lines in your makeup like your smile lines.

 

 

 

 

The Skincare Products Celebrities Swear By

It’s no secret that one of the perks of being a celebrity is receiving a ton of free products. From skin creams to masks, celebrities probably have a huge array of luxury items to choose from. But have you ever wondered what they actually use in their routine? We’ve discovered five celebrity favorites you can incorporate into your own skincare regimen that surprisingly won’t break the bank. Getting red-carpet skin is easier than you might think!

1.Cleanser

Everyone needs a good cleanser on hand, especially actresses who have makeup caked on their face all day long for filming. Lea Michele already knows this quite well, which is why she uses iS Clinical Cleansing Complex ($31.89). This gentle, yet clarifying cleanser works double duty as it gets rid of pore-clogging gunk with salicylic acid while also healing skin damage with three types of vitamins. Michele told InStyle she uses this cleanser because it “takes off everything without being too harsh.” It’s no wonder her skin is so Glee-fully clear.

2.Cleansing Brush

If you feel like you’re not getting a deep enough clean, it’s time to bring in a face brush. The Clarisonic Mia Fit Sonic cleansing device ($146.99) is a game-changer: It removes up to six times more makeup and debris than cleansing with your hands alone. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley said in an interview with Byrdie that one of her favorite things to use is the Clarisonic since “it’s great for really, really cleaning the skin of any makeup, impurities, or any dirt that has built up throughout the day.” The former Victoria Secret bombshell pairs the brush with the iS Clinical Cleansing Complex.

3.Face Mask

You don’t need a $200 face mask to give yourself the Hollywood treatment—and apparently neither does Khloé Kardashian. The reality star revealed to Us Weekly that she turned to Bliss Multi-’Face’-Eted All-In-One Anti-Aging Clay Mask ($30.99) once a week to detoxify her skin, claiming that “just seven minutes a week in this mask will do your face years of good.” Packed with skin-renewing ingredients such as glycolic acid and quartz, this mask definitely has us agreeing with her! 

4.Serum

Once your skin is squeaky clean, it’s time to move on to a serum. SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic ($159.99) is Brooke Shields’ obsession and key to making her skin look as youthful as it did back in her Blue Lagoon days. “It’s packed with antioxidants and really brightens my skin, and since I began using it, I’ve noticed a difference in my fine lines,” she told Redbook. No surprise there—this award-winning serum contains 15% pure vitamin C and ferulic acid, which effectively protects the skin from skin damage and builds up collagen

5.Sunscreen

Last, but certainly not least, every star knows how important it is to defend against the aging effects of the sun. There’s one sunscreen that keeps popping up in our celebrity radar, and that’s Elta MD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46 ($25.49). Ideal for acne-prone skin, this sunscreen reduces hyperpigmentation while relieving irritation and redness caused from blemishes. A few celebrities who use this SPF include Mindy Kaling, Kourtney Kardashian, and even Zac Efron. If nothing else convinces you to wear sunscreen…do it for the love of Efron. “Wear sunscreen every day, please. No amount of sun is safe, in my opinion,” he advised Refinery29. Can’t say no to that.

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

New Year, New You: 5 Beauty Resolutions to Keep

We know: It’s easy to make a New Year’s resolution. The hard part is actually keeping it. How many times have you sworn you’ll go to bed earlier, lose five pounds, stop buying a latte every morning, and work out regularly? We’ve definitely all been there. In the interest of punching up 2018 and making it the absolute best year ever (positive thoughts breed positive results!), we’re ready to kick things into high gear with our five top beauty resolutions for the year—that you can actually keep. Here we go.

 

Less Heat Styling

This one doesn’t sound all that exciting, we know. Where would be without our flat irons and blowdryers? The problem is that all of those heat-blasting tools do a number on your hair over time. So while it’s completely fine to use them occasionally, you’ll do your hair a huge favor by cutting usage just a bit and adding TIGI S Factor Body Booster Plumping Spray ($13.29) to your routine. It works by amplifying lackluster locks at the roots, so you can enjoy a fresh, just-washed look even if you really shampooed yesterday. No heat styling tools needed!

Basic Neck Care

It’s one of the most overlooked areas of the body, but it’s also one of the most telling. The neck is often a dead giveaway of aging skin, primarily because the skin is so thin. Fine lines and wrinkles seem to develop almost overnight, and skin seems to loosen and lose its luster. Make it a point to add a smoothing product to your routine, such as Dr. Brandt Do Not Age Moisturizing Neck Cream ($36.89). Enriched with sugar cane-derived glycolic acid, this natural alpha hydroxyl cream drenches skin with moisture while improving the appearance of aging skin.

Break the Habit

It’s one thing to have a favorite lip color, but it’s quite another to marry it because you’re too afraid to branch out and experiment with your look. If you fantasize about shaking up your makeup routine every now and then, invest in a tube or two of boldly colored lipsticks that dare to take you in an entirely different direction. We love Youngblood Intimatte Mineral Matte Lipstick ($14.99) for this reason—it delivers the kind of no-fuss, check-me-out color that you can’t help but admire on someone else. The only difference is that this year, you’re the one rocking this fearless hue.

Enjoy Me Time

If there’s one resolution you should absolutely keep in 2018, it’s to take better care of your emotional health. Whether that means giving yourself the occasional mental health day to unwind or immersing yourself in a tub full of Mama Mio Liquid Yoga Restorative Bath Soak ($32.99), you’ll feel the difference in both the short- and long-term when you allow yourself to relax in the comfort of soothing oils and healing salts. It’s that combination that’s both rejuvenating and uplifting, and it’s ideal even if you just want to reduce your stress or shake off the day’s difficulties. Bonus: Your skin feels amazing when you’re done.

Practice Foot Care

All too often, we neglect our feet simply because they’re encased in socks and shoes. But what if you gave them the same attention you did, say, your face or your hands? You’d be walking on sunshine! Start now and your feet will look pretty much perfect in weeks—and certainly in time for your springtime pedicure. If excessive dryness is a concern, as it is for many during winter, try Baby Foot Deep Exfoliation for Feet Peel ($18.99). In just about seven days, you’ll enjoy softer, truly baby soft feet—without a hint of that old dryness in sight. It’s worth it even if it’s a little out of your comfort zone.

New Year, New You! We’re celebrating 2018 with a fabulous sale on your favorite brands and products. Save big on some of the year’s hottest beauty loot, and prepare to make all of your resolutions a reality.

Pop Art Makeup for Halloween

Halloween is just around the corner and I know you want to win the costume game this year! What about trying something different this year with a Pop Art Make Up to take your spooky look to the next level. Trust me, it is easier than you think.

Prep: Flawless Face with Heavy Blush: prepare your skin as you normally do. But this time, go heavier on your blush since it is going to show up through all the dots you will be adding later on. The Jane Iredale In Touch Cream Blush ($17.99) will give you flawless application in one easy swoops.

Use some yellow eye shadow –very bright yellow eye shadow – and apply it to your eyelids and slightly beyond the inside corners. The heavier you go on this, the better! The Tigi Cosmetics HD Quad Eye shadow ($19.99) can help you to get that bright effect, perfect for the pop art costume!

Now, apply black eye shadow to the outside creases using an angled shadow brush to create a large slightly smudgy wing tip. Then blend a white eye shadow on your brow bones to highlight the look and give it an extra pop of dimension. The Jane Iredale Eye shadow Kit ($38.99) has both the black and white colors you need to slay this look!

 

Use the white Jane Iredale Eye Pencil ($10.99) to create a white line along your lower lash line. This is going to give the illusion of having a larger eyeball and now, with the black eye pencil, draw a new faux lower lash line below the white line you just made.

 

Before finishing your eyes, create a more dramatic look with really intense brows, for this, use a black eyeliner like the Youngblood Eyeliner ($7.99) Remember, you are not going to the movies with this make up, it is a Halloween costume so it is suppose to look over dramatic. Don’t forget to go big with your mascara and apply a few coats of the bareMinerals Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara – Black ($16.99).

For the lips, make a statement using the Tigi Cosmetics Decadent Lipstick in color “Honesty” ($12.99) Again, use white to give a highlight that will really complete your cartoon-like look. To finish the lip, outline in black, allowing the lines to taper off on the center of your lower lip line.

Now, the dots!! Using white paint, apply small dots all over your face. Now, Draw black lines to create your cheekbones and side of your nose using the black cream pod. This is going to finalize that two-dimensional character vibe.

 

How to Wear Hyper-Charged Blush

While it’s been the norm to wear just a pop o flight blush for years, the trend recently has shifted to a bolder, more intense look. It’s not for the timid, but it turns out anyone can wear a bright blush when it’s applied the right way—and in the right color, of course. Here, are the best shades to wear, how to pull off that deeper hue, and how to ensure that that the rest of your makeup doesn’t compete with the color.

 

The real key to pulling off those brighter-than-bright shades that look a little alarming in the packaging is to use a cream formula. Given their malleable consistency, they’re much easier to blend into the skin, and you can easily tone it down just a touch if you feel you’ve been a bit too heavy-handed with your application. And if you happen to want more color, you just need to tap a bit more onto your cheekbones to achieve the desired look.

 

So what’s the best way to accomplish this? You need to play with texture. Cream formulas don’t sit well if they’re applied over powder, so bear that in mind if you’re tempted to layer it over powder blush or even a powder foundation. The goal is to move from one creamy consistency to another, so that the two work together instead of against each other.

 

Of course, not all cream blushes are the same. The key is to select a formula that is truly creamy—one that doesn’t skip and bump as you attempt to rub it into your skin, and that leaves your complexion glowing with a healthy flush. We’re big proponents of Youngblood Luminous Crème Blush ($20.99) for that reason. Its oil-free formula is extremely light and airy, and it blends beautifully into the skin.

 

Don’t be taken aback by the devilishly dark hue in the pot—it looks incredibly fierce, but once applied it’s easy to bring down to a more natural (yet very noticeable) level. The idea is to work your way up to the point where hyper-charged is totally hyper-normal for you. That’s why a cream formula is so genius—it builds up nicely and creates beautiful definition.

 

To achieve the best results, we suggest a tool like bareMinerals Angled Face Brush ($17.99). Its slightly geometric cut allows for more precise application to the areas you really want to cover. Begin by applying color to the apples of your cheeks. Blend in a slightly circular motion, taking the brush upward and away from your cheekbones to your temples. This creates a slight “C” configuration that appears the most natural. Be sure to blend like crazy to achieve a soft flush.

 

What if powder is your formula of choice? No worries at all—the genius of Tigi Cosmetics Glow Blush ($12.99) is that it’s fairly foolproof. Remember to go light with the initial touch, because this is a heavily pigmented product that doesn’t demand hard-hitting application. We love using wider brushes with powder products, as they leave behind the kind of impish glow that is usually only seen on magazine covers. The Jane Iredale White Fan Blush Brush ($12.99) is an outstanding choice for its broad bristles and ability to pick up just the right amount of product.

 

After running it over the powder, tap away any excess and swirl away onto your cheekbones. Again, use a light hand to begin, and feel free to build it up after the first application. Remember that the brush is your friend—the fan silhouette is specifically designed to produce a softer, more natural look. Yet we’re after a hyper-charged complexion, remember? So repeat the process twice if you want to really amplify that color even more.

 

What good is all that hard work if the color doesn’t last? The beauty of wearing brighter blushes is that they have a tendency to stick around a bit longer. That said, you can prevent fading by applying Jane Iredale Balance Hydration Spray ($25.99) as your final step. Not only will it lock your makeup in place, but it also helps moisturize and retain a fresh appearance all day long. You’re guaranteed to have the best skin in the place thanks to your brilliant glow!

We’ve all been there and that’s why we’ve put together the perfect look just in time for back to school! Check it out!

Providing even coverage, it helps diminish the appearance of blemishes and fine lines. It helps create a smooth and supple texture with a dewy finish.

frames! Fill in your natural brows with a pencil that is two shades lighter for darker hair or two shades darker for lighter hair. Glo Minerals Brow Powder Duo ($18.99) are powders that are specially made to match all brow colors. They are designed to fill in any areas of less hair of the eyebrow you would like to fill in.

Make your lipstick last longer with these 5 tips

Whether you’re wearing a nude shade or you’re braving a fuchsia color, there’s nothing more frustrating than leaving your house with a perfect pout and needing to adjust and reapply an hour later after two sips of coffee. The secret to setting your lipstick isn’t really a secret. It’s a combination of prep, application, and product choices. Check out these tips for a long-lasting lip.

Prepare your lips. Exfoliate them

The first rule of lipstick is to have smooth lips, and the best way to ensure a perfect canvas is to gently exfoliate lips to remove flaky, dry spots. You can employ the help of an unused toothbrush (seriously, don’t touch the one you use in your mouth) or a lip scrub. One of our favorite exfoliants is the PCA Skin Gentle Exfoliant ($21.99) This product exfoliates while cleansing for a soft and smooth complexion. With a creamy texture, it is formulated with hydrating ingredients.

 

Add some concealer to your lips!

Pat a little foundation or concealer over lips. Don’t entirely erase your mouth, but cancel out your lip’s natural pink so that your lip color’s true hue comes through. This also gives it a little something extra to adhere to. Jane Iredale Enlighten Concealer ($22.99) can be the perfect option!

 

Use the Reverse Lining

You may think to reach straight for the liner that matches your lipstick of choice, but using a technique known as the reverse lining is actually the better way to go. Using a flesh- or clear-hued lip liner, like bareMinerals Gen Nude Lip Liner ($14.99) this helps prolong wear and prevent feathering, or for post-lining to clean up the edges and finish off your nude lip look.

 

Go for a liquid formula

Liquid lipsticks are definitely the trend of the moment, but they’re also here to stay for good reason: Their staying power is unparalleled. And no liquid stays put longer than Glo Minerals Gloss ($12.99) which protect and nourish your lips while conditioning and coloring them.  Let your lips sparkle and shimmer with this spectacular gloss.

 

 

Put some powder on it!

Take a tissue and separate it into two halves. Place one sheet on your lips and dust a translucent powder like Dermablend Setting Powder ($22.99) over the lips, through the tissue. This is a trick you’ll see makeup artists doing backstage at fashion shows. This sets the color and helps set makeup and enhances wearability.

5 Ways to look Younger in less than 5 minutes

We all do what we can to make sure we don’t look older. Night creams, wrinkle-reducing serums, and under-eye creams aren’t the only ways to blur the lines of aging. For those of you who might have missed the anti-aging memo, check out this makeup tips that can make you look younger in less than 5 minutes!

Illuminate your faceHighlighter not only gives you that nice glow, it can be used strategically to lift and contour the face, making it look more youthful! Try a little highlighter like the Jane Iredale Eye Highlighter Pencil ($11.99) on the inner and outer corners of the eyes and along the brow bone to brighten up the eye area. You can also use the Glo Minerals ($12.99) highlighter to lift the cheeks. This will draw your cheeks upward.

 

Warm It Up!

Nude lipstick and matte bronzer look lifeless on skin that’s dull. Instead, a neutral rose color applied to the lips like the Tigi Cosmetics Decadent Lipstick “Bliss DL” ($12.99) really brightens it up. For the cheeks, try the Youngblood Pressed Mineral Blush – Plumberry ($15.99) this mineral based sleek blush formulated with mica and jojoba oil to deliver a smooth application and cheeky glow

 

Open those eyes!

As your skin loses elasticity, your eyelids begin to droop. To fake lifted eyes, go for a good mascara. This product is one of the easiest things you can apply to make your eyes look bigger—and therefore younger. We couldn’t think of a better option to add that volume to your eyes better than the bareMinerals Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara – Intense Black ($17.99)

 

Go for a Liquid- Base Foundation

There is a time and a place for matte skin. However, powders can make your skin look dull and give you a cakey finish that accentuates lines and wrinkles. Go for a liquid-based foundation with a dewy finish, something like or similar to Youngblood Liquid Foundation ($26.99). The moisture and illuminating properties will minimize those pesky lines and make your skin look fresh and youthful. Plus, it is recommended to go for a yellowish foundation. Yellow warms up the skin, and the warmer your skin looks, the younger it looks!

 

Fill in your Brows

Because your brows thin out and droop at the ends as you get older, fill them out to look way younger! Lift your brows by applying a powder or brow pencil with a brush-through spoolie along the top line of the tail of your brows. Then, fill in any sparse areas lightly and brush through for a soft but defined look. We recommend the Glo Minerals Precision Brow Pencil ($12.99) since it works to fill in, sculpt, and shape your brows just how you like them.
