Get the look: Adele Grammys 2017

Adele was one of the biggest stars from the Grammys 2017, not only because all the awards she won, or her beautiful speech to Beyonce when she won “Best Album of the Year”, but also because her flawless hair and makeup. If you’re also dreaming on how to get that natural but still stunning look, keep posted!

To prepare your skin start by applying the bareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($20.99), providing skin-perfecting coverage, this primer-cream helps reduce the appearance of discolorations.

Then put a good base on your face with the Glo Minerals Protective Liquid Foundation Satin (25.99) to cover blemishes and other imperfections while providing protective antioxidant benefits.

To copy Adele’s sultry makeup start by lining your lids in Jane Iredale Liquid Eye Liner ($15.99) glide on with precision starting from the inner corner to create her signature cat eye before layering a swipe of bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 8.0 ($35.99). First, apply a cream color all over your lid and then contour the socket creating a shadow with the darker shade of the palette. Make sure to do the blending to create that effect of depth.

Going Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness

Did you know that one in eight women in the United States is diagnosed with breast cancer? That’s according to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. (NBCF), which also reports that it’s the most commonly diagnosed cancer among women—and the second leading cause of cancer-related death among women.bca-1

Sobering statistics like these are enough to stop any woman in her tracks. That’s why it’s so important that we all do our part to help during Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October. By raising awareness, instilling hope and courage, and being supportive of affected loved ones, you’re doing a world of good.

 

eltamd_20lotion-1341764-3Here, we’ve chosen a few of our favorite products straight from TheBeautyPlace.com—products that we hope will brighten spirits, raise awareness, and help the unique needs of those who undergo cancer treatments.

Dry skin is a common side effect of chemotherapy. The treatment can also worsen existing dry skin, and may also cause itchiness. A rich moisturizer designed to improve the skin’s moisture barrier and impart continuous hydration is key. We love the soothing texture of Elta MD Lotion ($14.29), because it helps strengthen skin while delivering continuous moisture for hours. Best of all, it can be used safely from head to toe (yes, even on your face).

 

avene-cold-cream-balmLips can also dry out considerably as a result of cancer treatment. A rich, highly moisturizing product like Avene Cold Cream Lip Cream ($12.99) infuses lips with deeply hydrating thermal spring water. It also feels incredibly luxurious and leaves lips pillow soft—almost suede-like, in fact. A little bit goes a long way, and because it’s hypoallergenic it’s safe even for those with sensitive skin.

 

Some cancer patients report that their skin feels remarkably smoother after using Egyptian Magic ($26.99) to soothe especially dry, cracked areas of the skin. It contains olive oil, honey, royal jelly, bee pollen, and beeswax, among other nourishing ingredients. The formula is designed to attack that dryness at its root, coating skin in deep moisture as it works overtime to minimize dryness and scaling. It can even be used on the hair, cuticles, after shaving, and just about anywhere else on the body.

Hair loss is one of the most common side effects of chemotherapy. Some other types of cancer treatments may cause the hair to thin. In that case, or in the event of partial hair loss, Toppik Colored Hair Thickener ($19.75) may be a viable solution. This spray product conceals thinning spots, touches up roots, and creates an illusion of fuller, richer hair. It’s available in several colors and is very easy and quick to use.

Cancer treatments can have an emotional impact on women. The side effects can be alarming, and the physical changes that affect the body, from hair loss to excessive dryness, can be disturbing. Remind her that she’s beautiful through it all and surprise her with a day-brightening beauty product, such as Tigi Cosmetics Brilliance Glow Blush ($15.99). It illuminates the complexion and can even be used as eye shadow in a pinch.

At TheBeautyPlace.com, our goal is simple: to do our own small part to help this very important cause. We’re hosting our Pink Sale from Saturday, Oct. 1 through Friday, Oct.7 in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We hope it serves a strong reminder that early detection is the key.

Fall Getaway: 5 Essential On-the-Go Products

Part of planning your fall vacation is stocking up on the essential beauty products you’ll need while you’re on the road. It’s true that hotels provide some limited items, like shampoo and conditioner, but you’re usually on your own when it comes to other things. Fortunately, theBeautyPlace.com is stocked with everything you need to look glamorous on the go. Here are five essential products for your next getaway.

Take your dermatologist’s best tools on the road! The Dr. Brandt Glow Travel Kit ($42.99) is a two-piece set that includes pump bottles of Overnight Resurfacing Serum and Ruby Crystal Retinol Hydracreme. Apply the cream to cleansed skin in the AM, making sure to follow with sunscreen (retinol can make your skin more susceptible to sunburn). Before bed, apply the serum to your skin and wake up to smoother, deeply hydrated skin in the morning.

There’s no guarantee your brows won’t go astray even during a short weekend trip. Keep them in perfect control with some help from Tweezerman Mini Brow Rescue Kit ($20.99), which is packed with everything you need to achieve picture-perfect arches on the go. Use the tweezers to pluck pesky strays, the Browmousse to keep brows in place, and the Eyenhance pencil to highlight the brow bone for an eye-opening finish. There’s also a shaping brush to help control thicker brows.

Lip moisturizer is a must, especially if you’re flying and exposed to dry cabin air. Avene Cold Cream Lip Balm ($12.99) works instantly to hydrate parched lips. It even soothes the pain of chapped lips. Its formula is a revitalizing cocktail of vitamins E and F, plus Avene thermal spring water. The combination imparts long-lasting moisture while keeping lips healthier and smoother in the long run.

fb_fallskincareSince most hotels don’t offer toothpaste, you may as well pack the best of the best. The Supersmile Pro Whitening System ($2.99) includes tubes of whitening toothpaste and whitening accelerator. To use, apply a drop of each onto a dry toothbrush and gently brush. This tiny duo will last you a month—or several trips!

Why lug around a heavy bottle of foundation when you could slip a tube of La Roche Posay Rosaliac CC Cream SPF 30 ($1.99) into your cosmetic bag or purse? It evens out your skin tone and is gentle enough to use on even the most sensitive skin. It also hydrates dry skin and contains sunscreen to protect skin from harmful UV rays.

Tutorial Tuesday – Use a Curling Wand

The use of curling wands can be tricky. Depending where you hold it, vertical or horizontal position or how tightly you wrap your hair around the barrel and so on can change the look and feel of your curls at the end. To end this battle with yourself, follow our tutorial to get easy curls perfect for any occasion!

You will need:

 

  1. Before you begin curling, make sure your hair is clean and dry.
  2. Prepare your hair by gently detangling it with a paddle brush or wide tooth comb.
  3. Horizontally part your hair starting at the temple and clip it out of place.
  4. Start with a vertical section of hair around an inch thick (the smaller the section the more curls you’ll have).
  5. Start wrapping your hair at the base of the barrel, and keeping a firm grip on your hair, wrap the entire section around the barrel without overlapping.
  6. Hold the tip of the section tightly around the barrel for a few seconds and release. The longer you keep your hair on the barrel the more defined your curls will be.

P.S. When you’re done with your whole head, don’t forget to run your fingers through your hair! This will give your curls a more natural look.

Spritz a shine mist to leave your hair smooth frizz-free.

Stay beautiful!

Quick Beauty Tip – Homemade Treatments for Damaged Hair

treatments-for-damaged-hairI’m obviously obsessed with beauty products and I’m not ashamed to say it – but I am also a fitness buff and fully understand and recognize the power of the natural ingredients we all have access to. So many of the delicious & nutritious things we include in our diet can also be used to make us more beautiful too! Here are a few of my favorite hair masks using all natural ingredients you can get at any grocery store!

1. Banana & Avocado: YES we are obsessed with avocados! Mash a ripe avocado and ripe banana and mix well. Apply an even layer to clean, dry hair and let sit for at least 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and condition as usual. Your locks will be moist & shiny when you’re done! Plus, this mixture smells delicious!

2. Honey & Olive Oil: Sounds like the beginning of a salad dressing recipe – but this combo does wonders for your tresses! Combine equal parts of the two and apply from roots to tips. Secure hair in a shower cap and let it sit for 45 minutes. Shampoo lightly and condition normally afterwards. Your hair will be silky & shiny when you’re done!

3. Thyme Treatment: If you suffer from dandruff, try this – boil 8 sprigs of fresh thyme in 2 cups of water. Once rapidly boiling remove from heat and let cool. Strain and massage the leaves into your scalp. Rinse and repeat with leftover mixture in a couple days. This is a natural way to fight flakes!

Tutorial Tuesday – Lighten Your Hair With Lemon Juice!

Tutorial Tuesday Lemon Juice Highlighter!If keeping up with the Summer Beauty Trends has been breaking the bank, save on highlighting your hair this month by using the age old lemon juice technique! This may not give you the most predictable, and professional look, but if you have wavy or curly hair it can provide gorgeous and natural looking streaks! Here’s what you do:

  1. Squeeze a few lemons into a bowl, strain seeds out. The amount of lemons to use depends on the length and amount of hair you want to highlight.
  2. Pour lemon juice into a clean spray bottle.
  3. Section out the pieces you want to highlight and start spritzing!
  4. Once you have the desired amount of juice on your hair, step outside and soak up some UV rays for 30 minutes.

Caution: be extremely careful not to get any citrus on your hands or face. Wash your hands thoroughly after applying juice or you run the risk of getting phytophotodermatitis! And we can’t leave out the part where we remind you to apply sunscreen too!

After 30 minutes, head back inside and wash your hair normally. Be sure to use a deep conditioner to add the moisture back in that the sun and lemon juice has stripped. Enjoy your  new look!

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!

Khloe_Kardashian_Red_Hair_5

 

 

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!
