Keeping your makeup natural and effortless will help to avoid looking overdone, and also speeds up your morning routine.

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.

 

You probably don’t want to put much make up for school because you like it to keep it simple. We get it, and we support that! However, you cannot skip your window
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.

This product is formulated to help lashes look longer, thicker and fuller without clumping, smudging or flaking.
To keep with the simplicity of the look, always add a swipe of your favorite nude or pink lipstick. bareMinerals Mini Moxie Plumping Lip Gloss Collection ($23.99) has many options to match your lipstick with your mood or even wear a different one each week!

If you want to add a pop of color, try it in smaller proportions like blue eyeliner! Tigi Cosmetics Perfect Eyeliner, tone “Peacock” ($11.99) easily glides onto the eyelid without stretching the delicate skin around the eye. You can get this pencil not only in blue, but also in purple and green

4 Sunscreen Myths You Need to Stop Believing

It’s no secret that sunscreen is essential. What does seem to cause some confusion, though, are the many myths and half-truths surrounding this essential beauty product. Which are facts, and which would best be described as complete fiction? Here are four common sunscreen myths you need to stop believing.

 

Myth: You Don’t Need Full Body Coverage

Truth: Many people feel they’re sufficiently protected so long as they slather sunscreen on the face. But sun damage can affect any area of the body, from foreheads to toes, and eventually lead to skin cancer. That’s why it’s so critical to apply sun protection everywhere. Think of the wrinkly hands and aging necks that are often dead giveaways of a person’s true age—they’re also highly indicative of poor sun care habits.

Try: Avene Mineral Light Hydrating Lotion SPF 50+ (Face and Body), $24.99

 

Myth: You Need Sun Exposure for Optimal Vitamin D Levels

Truth: Vitamin D is the “feel good” nutrient all healthy humans need. While the sun helps skin produce vitamin D, it’s not the only source—and certainly not a reason to skimp on sunscreen in an effort to soak up as much D as possible. In fact, that’s counterproductive because your skin only produces so much of the vitamin within a certain time frame before it stops. (Imagine if your skin generated vitamin D during every waking moment spent in the sunlight—it would quickly reach overdosed levels!) Keep wearing that sunscreen, and rely on a combination of supplements, a healthy diet, and brief sunlight exposure to enjoy optimal levels.

Try: Dr. Brandt XYY Power Dose D Sunshine Vitamin for Skin, $30.99

Myth: You Only Need Sunscreen During Peak Hours

Truth: Peak sunlight time is typically defined as 10 am to 4 pm, when the sun’s rays are especially powerful. Naturally, it’s vital to wear sunscreen during these hours, but that doesn’t mean the rest of the day is precluded from harming your skin. Harmful UVA rays are present throughout the day, and can lead to skin damage and some forms of skin cancer. Even cloudy days aren’t enough to protect skin. In fact, those are the days that often produce some of the worst sunburns because people neglect to wear sunscreen altogether. Clouds block only a small percentage of UV rays, meaning that you can still suffer even if you don’t necessarily see or feel the sun.

Try: La Roche Posay Anthelios 50 Mineral Ultra Light Sunscreen, $24.99

 

Myth: You Can Wear Any Sunscreen to Prevent UVA and UVB Damage

Truth: Sunscreens that are labeled “broad-spectrum” are the only ones that prevent damage from both UVA and UVB rays. UVA rays are responsible for producing visible signs of aging, including spots, fine lines, and wrinkles, while UVB rays cause sunburns. Both of them can ultimately lead to skin cancer, so it’s best to wear a product that effectively combats them equally.

Try: Elta MD UV Shield Broad-Spectrum SPF 45, $38.89

4 Products to Soothe Sensitive Skin

Coping with sensitive skin is, well, a sensitive issue. There’s lots of trial and error involved, and it can often result in unnecessary dollars spent, tons of product wasted, and endless frustration. Anyone who regularly wages war with ruddy skin, irritation, and itchiness knows this all too well.

In the interest of alleviating your stress (which, by the way, can make those sensitive skin woes even worse) and easing your skin’s discomfort, we’ve rounded up four of the most effective products for sensitive skin. The next time your cheeks, nose, and forehead decide to flare up, you’ll have just the thing in your beauty arsenal to put an end to the misery.

Moisturize Gently

A healing moisturizer is the key to soothing inflamed skin that doesn’t respond to traditional products. Pevonia Soothing Sensitive Skin Cream ($48.79) is formulated specifically to treat redness resulting from irritation and rashes. Its cocktail of aloe and propolis helps relax oversensitive patches and decongestion. Your skin does its best work overnight, so apply it liberally before bed and enjoy softer, more comfortable skin by morning.

 

Treat Specifically

Sometimes it’s just a few select areas that need a little TLC. Keep a tube of Avene Antirougeurs FORT Relief Concentrate ($29.99) in your medicine cabinet for those moments when your skin really freaks out and needs immediate treatment. Free of parabens and fragrances, it diminishes ruddiness and calms the symptoms of rosacea. It’s also hypoallergenic, so you can feel safe using it when your skin needs some serious help.

 

Cleanse Softly

Avoid cleansers that strip your skin and opt for a milder product, like bareMinerals Pure Plush Gentle Deep Cleansing Foam ($19.99). Infused with gentle elderflower and rosemary extracts, it drenches skin with moisture will leaving it soft and refreshed. A little bit goes a long way—that’s important to remember when your skin is sensitive. Avoid overusing products or doing too much to your skin in general.

Cover Up

Sometimes you have no option but to conceal sensitive skin before you head out the door. It’s a good idea to keep a potent product like Dermablend Cover Crème Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($26.99) on hand for such emergencies. Available in a whopping 21 shades (there is truly one for every skin tone!), it provides instant full coverage on even the most difficult spots. Long-lasting coverage means you’ll never have to worry about it smudging or budging, and essential sunscreen protects your skin from those harmful ultraviolet rays.

Highlighter is here to stay!

Makeup trends seem to come and go faster than we can hit our favorite Makeup store. It seems like a new product comes out every day and it’s hard to keep up sometimes! One product that seems to be taking over everyone’s makeup routine is highlighter. It seems like every makeup artist and fashion magazine is always mentioning and swearing by this magical, glowing beautifier.

But what exactly is highlighter and why is it so important when it comes to looking your best? Basically, highlighter is face makeup that attracts light, creating the illusion of brightness and height. It can completely change your look in a subtle way that can’t exactly be placed but makes all the difference. For instance, the Glo Minerals Highlighter ($20.99) can add a hint of radiant light to your makeup. Apply this pink luminizer anywhere you want a subtle, natural glo that can instantly brighten your complexion. It is the perfect finishing touch!

There are three main areas you should apply highlighter: the cheekbones and temples, the eyes, and the Cupid’s bow. Applying highlighter in a diagonal line from just beneath the center of your eye socket up towards your hairline gives your cheekbones some extra definition. If you need to look awake when you’re working on three hours of sleep just a pinch of highlighter to the inner corner of your eyes can brighten up those dark circles. For these areas, Jane Iredale Eye Highlighter Pencil – White/Pink ($11.99) is literally perfection! This product instantly wakes up tired eyes and give eyes a lift with this white and pink pencil. Use the white side to line inside the eye ledge to make eyes appear bigger and brighter. Use the pink side to give a soft, radiant appearance. Use to highlight the brow bone or cheek bone. On the other hand, highlighter can also benefit your lipstick by giving it a really clean look with one swipe of the product.

Highlighter has become so popular that a new makeup trend called “strobing” is taking over the internet. Instead of using a darker color and a lighter color to chisel the face through contouring, all you do is use highlighter. Another great option that we suggest is the Jane Iredale In Touch Highlighter – Complete ($20.99) this creamy lightweight formula can be applied to the tops of cheekbones, brow bones, and nose bridge.  The result is more natural-looking, dewy skin that glimmers in all the right places.

The Best Concealers for Every Need

To conceal or not to conceal: That is the question. In nearly every case, most of us opt to conceal some sort of complexion imperfection. Dark circles under the eyes, ruddiness around the nose, and acne scars stand no chance against a powerful concealer that covers any type of skin concern. At TheBeautyPlace.com, we have a concealer for every need. Here are the best of the best.

For Oily Skin

If your skin is of the slick and shiny variety, you already know how challenging it can be to use any sort of makeup on your face. One of the best is Glo Minerals Camouflage Oil-Free Concealer ($22.99), a hyper-pigmented product in a reliable cream formula. Best applied with a brush, it stays put while reducing the appearance of unwanted marks and hyperpigmentation. It’s also enriched with nourishing vitamins and green tea extract.

For On the Go

Who has time to stand around meticulously applying concealer in the middle of a hectic day? Not you, we suspect, which is why we suggest the Jane Iredale Zap & Hide Blemish Concealer ($19.59) to resolve any of your pesky skin woes. This double-ended concealer is a double threat: It both hides the imperfections you wish to keep under wraps and treats them! It works its magic with a combination of tea tree leaf and lavender oils, both potent anti-blemish ingredients that are gentle and effective.

For Brightening

Dark under eye circles need a boost! The goal is to both cover and reflect light—a job for the marvelously talented Jane Iredale Active Light Undereye Concealer ($18.99). Available in six shades, it doesn’t just cover those stubborn circles. It also highlights the area to brighten and reduce the visible appearance of your most difficult complexion issue. Choose your shade based on your unique need: some neutralize redness, while others eliminate brown discoloration.

For Complete Coverage

Sometimes it’s easier to just apply moisturizer, smack on some concealer, and head out the door. We all have those days when applying a full face is just too much trouble. Yet what if you really need serious coverage? That’s when you turn to bareMinerals bareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer ($18.99). It feels lightweight to the touch—almost like your favorite lotion—but quickly transforms into a high-potency makeup product that works overtime to hide just what you want it to, whether it’s spotty acne marks on the chin or a sallow complexion.

Long gone are those days of spending hours getting ready in the morning. We’ve taken our favorite eye products and have made a few short videos showing you just how easy it is to get this perfect everyday eye look.

The Best Sunscreens for Every Situation

The importance of wearing sunscreen has been hammered into us for as long as we can remember. Most would say it’s beauty rule number one—the one rule you absolutely should not break. That’s why it’s so important to choose one that you can use daily before you head outdoors.

That said, not all sunscreens are alike. Some are more suited for the body, and others are designed exclusively for the face. Here are some of the best sunscreens available on TheBeautyPlace.com for every warm-weather situation you may encounter.

For Your Makeup

Some foundations are infused with sun protection, but they don’t provide sufficient coverage against harmful ultraviolet rays. You would need to pile on the foundation in order to reap the benefits, which is why it’s a good idea to wear a separate sunscreen underneath your foundation. Try broad-spectrum John Masters Organics Natural Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 ($30.99), a lightweight formula enriched with hydrating and nourishing green tea and shea butter.

For the Beach

It’s no secret that some sunscreens literally stink. The key to choosing a great sunscreen for the beach is to find a formula that works overtime to protect you from damaging UV rays while also adding a nice tropical fragrance to the mix. COOLA Classic Sport SPF 50 ($26.99) ticks every box on the list—it contains an anti-inflammatory dose of organic arnica extract, hydrating oils of omegas 3 and 6, plus a cocktail of nourishing vitamins. All that, plus a juicy mango scent, makes it the ultimate beachwear option.

For Outdoor Fitness

 If you’re an outdoor fitness maven, you’ve probably lost count of the number of sunscreens you’ve tried. There’s got to be at least one that won’t streak away while you’re out there getting fit, right? It’s safe to say you need a tube of La Roche Posay Anthelios 60 Body Milk Sunscreen ($28.99). In addition to high-performance sun protection, it’s water-resistant for better wear in the sweltering heat. It also contains moisturizers and antioxidants to protect your skin from dryness and free radicals.

For Sensitive Skin

 If you can barely use fragrances without breaking out into hives, you may find it difficult to find a sunscreen that really suits your sensitive skin. To the rescue comes Murad Redness Therapy Correcting Moisturizer SPF 15 ($28.89). It’s formulated to improve the appearance of ruddy, inflamed skin while drenching it with moisture and protecting it from dangerous UV rays. It also has a hint of tint to correct discoloration, and may even help minimize flakiness that could result from summer dryness.

For Combating Aging

Fine lines and wrinkles are no match for a potent sunscreen with built-in anti-aging ingredients. Dermalogica Age Smart Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 50 ($51.99) is essentially the superhero of the skin care world. It combats even stubborn lines while preventing the formation of new ones, all while protecting skin from sunlight. You’ll notice an improvement in your skin’s texture and elasticity over time, both of which are key in reducing the visible signs of aging. 

For Daily Use 

Who wants to wear a face full of makeup when it’s hot outside? Treat yourself to a two-in-one product that actually works: Peter Thomas Roth Radiant Instant Mineral Brush-On Bronzer Sunscreen SPF 30 ($19.99). Tucked inside this discreet bottle is a powder that leaves your skin beautifully bronzed. That healthy glow, though, comes second to the product’s potent, broad-spectrum sunscreen. A little color and a ton of sun protection is all you need to get through the day, and this delivers perfectly.
