2017 Beauty Resolutions: Products to Help You Stay on Track

a320f0d81ecea4f176abea6b67004157As we welcome the new year, it’s time to put aside the bad habits—you know the ones—and replace them with some real, solid, actually-doable resolutions. When it comes to beauty, there are some places we all naturally tend to skimp: maybe it’s that little issue we have with removing makeup without fail every single night, or that kind of unsettling decision we make to let nail polish chip away on its own.

At TheBeautyPlace.com, we realize life gets in the way—which is why we’ve collated a few of our favorite products that will make it easy to make and keep your biggest beauty resolutions for 2017. Here is everything you need to stay on track!

Resolution: Remove my makeup every night

Solution: Murad Clarifying Wipes, $15.99 or Jane Iredale Magic Mitt $13.99

How easy life would be if we could just wave a wand and watch the makeup magically disappear into thin air. The next best thing could be these wipes, which come 30 to a package and are infused with nourishing ingredients that do far more than justremove cosmetics, dirt, and debris. They also soak up excess oils and help normalize your skin. The more you use them, the clearer and brighter your complexion will look. With this added benefit, there’s no reason to skip this essential step any longer—your skin will look amazing by the end of the month!

 

Resolution: Keep my manicure fresh

Solution: OPI Euro Centrale Collection My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours, $7.99

The problem with manicures and pedicures is that they kind of don’t last forever. That’s unfortunate for those of us who are too busy to sit down and remove those last remnants of color, but actually pretty cool too because it allows you the opportunity to play around with so many different shades. Enter this nail color: a fiery, sexy hue that’s primarily red, yet injected with an orangey undertone that gives it a warmer feel. You can wear thisanywhere, at any time of year, and because it’s so dark you’ll want to remove the chipped bits as soon as possible. What better way to stay on top of your nail game?

Resolution: Stop damaging my hair with heat

Solution: Style Sexy Hair 450 Headset Heat Defense Setting Spray, $9.99

There may have been a time when you resolved to completely eliminate heat styling products from your regimen. If you’re a slave to your blow dryer, though, or you can’t actually envision life without your flat iron, then you absolutely must make sure you’re protecting your hair before you use them. This setting spray keeps your hair safe from temperatures up to 450 degrees, so that you can freely dry or straighten without fear of damage, like breakage and brittleness. It also reduces frizz and adds a healthy, shiny finish, so your hair will look amazing all day long.

 

Resolution: Clean my makeup brushes

Solution: Jane Iredale Botanical Brush Cleaner, $13.99 or bareMinerals Quick Change Brush Cleaner 3.7 oz$15.99

One of the biggest beauty faux pas out there is something most of us are guilty of committing: not washing our makeup brushes regularly. It can be a difficult habit to settle into, primarily because it takes a bit of time for brushes to dry. Make this process just a little more convenient with this spray, which helps brushes dry more quickly. It contains extracts of grapefruit, plus seaweed conditioner, to soften synthetic or natural hairs and rinse away gunky buildup from your makeup. It’s free of parabens, too, so individuals with sensitive skin don’t have to worry about dealing with reactions.

3c5a8c0c5a8d4b4e19a3d35f4c10c79eResolution: Protect my skin from the sun

Solution: COOLA Eco-Lux Sport Continuous Spray SPF 30 ($30.99)

Not only is wearing sunscreen a smart habit, but it’s also potentially a life-saving one. Why risk the chance of developing premature wrinkles, age spots, or even skin cancer? This spray-on sunscreen makes application a breeze. It’s water resistant for up to 40 minutes, and is enriched with antioxidant-busting, organic ingredients that combat the signs of aging and drench skin with hydration. With additions like algae, cucumber, and strawberry, it’s not unlike a healthy cocktail for your skin. Even better is its refreshing citrus mimosa scent—it’s a crisp, summery, sweet fragrance everyone you’ll love to wear.

Resolution: Make myself a priority

Solution: John Masters Organics Roll-On Fragrance, $19.99

Carving out some much-needed “me” time can be difficult when you’re bogged down with responsibilities of work, family, friends, and household. Even if you don’t have time to curl up with a good book, enjoy a lazy cup of tea, or take a nap, you can add some small details to your day to change your overall outlook. It’s the little things that count, after all, and applying some of this fragrance to your pulse points will serve as a reminder that you’re treating yourself to something special and indulgent. The Sultry Spice fragrance is a lovely blend of bourbon vanilla, orange, neroli, and cypress, yielding a warm, cozy scent that’s reminiscent of an embrace.

Quick Beauty Tip – Flawless At Home Manicure

Put a layer of Vaseline around your cuticles  before painting your nails at home. This acts as a shield for your skin so if you color a bit outside the lines, the nail polish won’t adhere to skin and can be wiped right off! quicktip-vaseline-nails

Tutorial Tuesday – DIY French Manicure

Get the perfect French Manicure at home using the simplest tool – a rubber band! Use a classic white nail polish for your tips, or get creative with another color!

Follow the pictorial below and don’t forget to clean up the extra paint afterwards.

TT-french-rubber-bandP.S. For a better result, tie a knot on your rubber band so that it fits snugly on your finger. This will help avoid the rubber band sliding around while you paint. Don’t forget to top off with a clear coat!

Stay beautiful!

Tutorial Tuesday – DIY Gel Manicure

TT-DIY-Gel-Manicure

Gel manicures are a hands on girl’s best friend! They last far longer and keep your nails strong and less prone to breakage. The downside is that they can be costly, and your local salon may not have the color that you want in gel polish. Here is how to recreate a gel manicure in any color of nail polish you want!

Step 1: Apply two coats of Gelous Advanced Nail Gel Coat

Step 2: Apply one coat of the nail polish color you want to rock for the next couple weeks followed by another coat of Gelous.

Step 3: After allowing the coats from Step 1 & 2 to dry, apply another coat of the color polish & finish it off with top coat.

Your friends will be super “gelous”! (Was that too cheesy?)

Follow our previous tutorial tuesday to learn how to remove a gel manicure at home when you’re done!

Quick Beauty Tip – How To Avoid Bubbly Manicures

quicktip-prevent-polish-bubblesToday’s quick beauty tip is more like 5 in 1! Follow these steps to avoid dreaded bubbles in your manicure forever! 1. Swipe your nails clean with nail polish remover even if your nails aren’t painted. This will give you a clean canvas to work with. 2. If you moisturize, be sure to wipe the nails down before painting. This is great for your skin, but can leave residue that leads to bubbles on your nail. 3. Stop shaking the bottle before use. If you feel the need, take the bottle between the palms of your hands and swipe them back and forth. 4 & 5. Keep your coats thin and resist the urge to put nails in front of a fan or dryer. You want to ensure that the each layer of polish dries at the same time. If the top layer dries before the first, you may create bubbles.

Enjoy your perfect mani!

Quick Beauty Tip – Make Your Manicure Last Longer

skip-manicure-soakNext time you’re getting a manicure, skip the soak! Seems like a silly move because this part softens your cuticles, but when soaking in warm water, your nails expand. After being painted they gradually shrink back down to size and your manicure is more likely to chip! If you simply can’t go without the soaking step, opt for cold water instead!

Tutorial Tuesday – Tuxedo Nails

If you love nail art you have to master this simple and uber cute one! Step 1 – paint nails white. Step 2 – paint black triangular border. If you don’t have a steady hand, you can apply tiny triangles of painter’s tape on each nail. Step 3 – Add two black dots as buttons in the small point of the triangle. If you don’t have a dotting tool, use our at home dotting tool tutorial to create one. Step 4 – draw a small bow in the large end of the triangle. The best way to do this is with a dotting tool. Draw an x and then fill it in. TT-tuxedo-nails

Quick Beauty Tip – How To File Your Nails Properly

file-nails-correctEver wonder why your at home manicure isn’t as flawless as the one you get in a salon? A lot of it has to do with the way you file! File your nails in one direction to get a smoother shape. This will decrease the likelihood that your nails will crack and break.

Feed Your Nails

healthy-nailsThat’s right! I want you to literally feed your nails the nutrients they need to grow faster and stronger. The only thing worse than un-manicured hands are unattractive un-manicured hands! My mom always told me not to judge people by their nail beds, but I just can’t help it!

Follow these steps to keep your fingernails at their full potential:

1. What you eat: eating healthy foods that are rich in protein do good for more than just your body. They help your hair and nails grow stronger and prevent breakage. Try to add foods into your diet including avocados, salmon, and nuts.

2. Pamper them: it may make you feel like a diva, but you deserve it! Use gloves when washing dishes and cleaning up around the house. Cleaning supplies and dish soap break down your nails and make them weaker and prone to breaking. When you type away on any of the many keyboards you use, press with the pads of your fingers instead of the top of your nails. These tips will make your manicures last longer too!

3. Trim often: Some of us have trouble growing our nails so we let them grow in however they please and refuse to trim them. Those uneven edges end up snagging more often and you end up with broken nails that are shorter than they would have been if you just filed them down!

4. Moisturize: it is important to apply oils to your cuticles and nails. If you let them dry out, you’re even more prone to breakage. If you don’t have professional cuticle oil, you can always use some good old EVOO (extra virgin olive oil).

5. Apply a nail hardener: seems like a no brainer, but this clear, simple step is often skipped when manicuring. Lots of nail hardeners double as base or top coats, it is just a matter of preference, and guess what?! They actually work!
