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.

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 BareMinerals Highlighter Stick  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 bareMinerals Invisible Light Translucent Powder Duo 0.31 oz 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”  really brightens it up. For the cheeks, try the Youngblood Pressed Mineral Blush 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

 

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. 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.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide Celebrity Edition

With Mother’s Day right around the corner, it’s time to begin the search for the perfect gift. We’ve narrowed it down to the seven most indulgent products that will make her feel like the queen that she is. All of these skincare products have been favorited by celebrity moms so rest assured your own mom will be receiving the star treatment this year.

Avene Thermal Spring Water

If your mom is into natural and organic skincare products, then Avene Thermal Spring Water ($16.99) is the way to go. Effective at calming itchy and red skin, this soothing mist excels in replenishing moisture back into the face. Gwyneth Paltrow, who loves holistic healing and detoxifying treatments, considers this water one of the best French beauty products in the market. She says it works as both a quick refresher on a hot day and helps set makeup.

 

 

Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber De-Tox Foaming Cleanser

Although Kelly Rutherford is almost 50 years old, her skin still looks flawless. Her secret? Peter Thomas Roth’s skincare products, which she’s been using since her twenties. Aside from applying sunscreen, she advises to invest in good skin products and wash your face nightly—advice handed down to her by her own mother. We recommend Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber De-Tox Foaming Cleanser ($18.99) because it’s great for all skin types. It’s effectively sweeps away dirt yet still nourishing as it supplies the skin with vitamins and aloe.

 

Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant

When she’s not caring for her son or working on a project, January Jones loves to take moments for herself by doing treatments at home. In fact, she prefers to do those then get a facial done because she finds it therapeutic. The actress first uses Avene to cleanse her skin, then she follows up with Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant ($35.99) because “you look so shiny and new after you use it.” The two-in-one exfoliating mask really does help the skin look brand new because of the natural fruit enzymes that help stimulate cell renewal from within.

GlamGlow Gravity Mud Firming Treatment

Convenient and easy to use, GlamGlow Gravity Mud Firming Treatment ($55.99) is an amazing mask for sculpting the skin without any cosmetic procedures. The product gives the illusion of a face lift as it instantly firms and tightens the face. All your mom will have to do is watch as it turns from white to chrome and then peel it off. Used by Cat Deeley, among many other celebrities, this product will give your mom the Hollywood treatment.

SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic

Sienna Miller’s skincare regimen often consists of freezing ice masks “that make you feel as if your brain is going to fall out of the top of your head.” Fortunately, you can get your mom something even better that won’t leave her with a brain freeze: SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic ($160.99). When Sienna is not getting an intense facial massage, she maintains the glow at home everyday with this product. Fortified with vitamin C and ferulic acid, this powerhouse serum works to diminish the appearance of wrinkles while brighten the skin’s complexion.

Dr. Brandt Do Not Age Transforming Pearl Serum

Another excellent serum you can get your mom is Dr. Brandt’s Do Not Age Transforming Pearl Serum ($79.99). In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar Magazine, Madonna said she loves how tight her face felt after applying more than she probably should. The award-winning serum fuels the skin with vital energy, helping restore the look of firmness for a more youthful appearance as the Queen of Pop knows all too well.

Jane Iredale Loose Mineral Powder

Original supermodel Cindy Crawford has always had to take care of her skin as part of her job. Now as a mom to a rising supermodel, she has shown her daughter all the best products. Jane Iredale Loose Mineral Powder ($34.89) makes the cut because Cindy feels “like you can’t mess it up” since it doesn’t streak and it’s really easy to use. We couldn’t agree more—your mom will love this product if she’s not into heavy makeup but likes an all-over even finish.

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.

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.

 

 

 

 

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

Mid-Day Refresh: How to Touch Up Your Makeup in a Rush

You’ve got places to go, things to do, and people to see. Where does your makeup routine factor into the schedule? If you’re anything like us, you usually need to refresh your look a bit by midday. We’re here to share several helpful tips to minimize the time it takes you to usually revamp your complexion. Here, how we pull it all together even in the midst of a crazy day.

Invest in a Crazy Good Concealer

If your goal is to minimize imperfections and perfect your skin, your best bet is to invest in a concealer that is designed to hide everything from dark circles to ruddiness. We love bareMinerals bareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer ($18.99). Available in four versatile shades, it features a lightweight consistency. When applied, it smoothes and drenches skin with moisture, conceals precisely what you want to hide, and nourishes to reveal a brighter, healthier complexion with regular use.

 

Brighten Up with Tinted Moisturizer

By midday, your entire complexion could look a little sallow. Forget about starting afresh with every single product in your beauty routine. Just whip out a product like Jane Iredale Dream Tint Tinted Moisturizer ($30.99). Not only is it infused with protective SPF 15, but it also moisturizes skin and leaves behind a hint of color that helps banish imperfections with a natural finish.

 

Put On a Kiss of Color

Sometimes all you really need is a pop of color on your lips to shake things up after a busy morning. In fact, that’s often all you need to feel more pulled together before a big meeting or gathering with friends for lunch. Slick on Tigi Cosmetics Diamond Lipstick ($17.99), available in eight shades and perfect for livening up your look when you need something peppy to perk things up.

 

Warm Up Your Complexion

Particularly helpful during the cooler months, Youngblood Luminous Crème Blush ($20.99) will quickly warm up apale complexion. Just smudge it onto your cheekbones and blend, blend, blend to achieve a natural glow that brightens your face and gives winter paleness a little nudge.

 

Liven Up Your Lids with Cream

If you’re focused on playing up your eyes, you don’t want to spend half of your lunch hour applying primer, shadow, liner, and mascara. Keep the routine simple by touching up your lids with Tigi Cosmetics Cream Eyeshadow ($13.99). Thanks to its crease-free formula, it slicks right on and stays put without budging—and it leaves behind a gorgeous shimmer, too.
