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.

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.

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.

How to make your foundation last longer and look better

Is there any specific order when it comes to applying makeup? Oh yes… Most of the time, we start only with the foundation, and we can get a little frustrated because it doesn’t look as fresh and perfect as we would like. There are some steps we should follow before and after the foundation and some hacks to make it last longer and look even better!

 

Always apply moisturizer before starting your makeup, as it makes the application even. Wait a few minutes after your application before priming. Two of our favorite moisturizers are SkinMedica Ultra Sheer Moisturizer 2 oz ($35.99) and Jane Iredale BeautyPrep Face Moisturizer ($28.99). Remember that by moisturizing your skin, it will allow your makeup to go on smoother and last longer.

 

Whether you wear a full face of makeup every day or you prefer to keep it simple with BB cream and tinted lip balm, makeup primer is a godsend when trying to combat shine or create a smooth base for foundation. The bareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer ($20.99) is a great option because it prepares skin for flawless coverage. Plus, it conceals enlarged pores, uneven texture, and dryness while creating a silky, smooth canvas.

Many people often skip this step because they believe they don’t really need it, and are unsure of how to use it or don’t think it’s worth the investment. However, using a primer underneath your makeup will make everything last longer, whether that’s on your skin or in your cosmetics bag.

 

Sealing your pores is also essential! By taking care of this, you will be able to make your foundation even and it will give you that doll-face effect. In order to seal your pores, you should definitely go with Dr. Brandt Pores No More Anti-Aging Mattifying Lotion ($31.99) this product will take care of sealing pores and creating almost a blanket over them. This hack is extremely important if you like liquid foundations since they can make your pores more visible.

 

If you think it is time for foundation, not yet! Sunscreen protection is a must that your skin will highly appreciate! I know you’re probably thinking “My makeup already has SPF in it, so that should have you covered, right?” Wrong.

Applying SPF is a step we simply cannot miss to have our face fully covered. The John Masters Organics Natural Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 ($30.99) is a natural sunscreen that will replenish the skin of vitamins and minerals. It is important that you follow this step carefully before foundation, but allow the product to set and really penetrate the skin.

 

With these hacks, you’ll have that perfect canvas to create the makeup look you want!
