Everything You Need to Perfect Your Eyebrows

You and your eyebrows have been through a lot together. There’s that now infamous junior high photograph of your unibrow. The overplucked arches you rocked in high school. Maybe the adventurous attempt to grow them out 80s-style in college. Whatever your brow history was and your current brow game is, you’ll find everything you need to perfect your eyebrows today at TheBeautyPlace.com.

Every woman needs a great pair of tweezers. The industry gold standard is the Tweezerman Slant Tweezer ($18.99). Made with a stainless steel tip, it’s designed to precisely grip individual hairs without irritating skin. Be sure to squeeze firmly as you bear down on the hair, and then pull swiftly. You’ll be amazed at the clean finish that’s left behind.

 

What if you make a mistake and over-pluck some brows? Hey, it happens to the best of us—you’d be hard-pressed to find a woman who hasn’t accidentally gone a little overboard during a brow grooming session. To the rescue comes the Youngblood Brow Artiste Kit ($28.99). Available in four color sets, the kit includes two pressed brow powders, a tinted wax, a double-sided brow brush, and a pair of tweezers. Use the powder to fill in those bare spots. The wax is exceptional for taming unruly hair and adding just a hint of tint at the same time.

If your main concern is just unruly brows, keep in mind that it’s better to have more hair than less. You run the risk of waiting a long while for those brows to grow back. Try a brow gel, such as this clear formula from Glo Minerals ($12.99), to sculpt brows into place and achieve a sleeker appearance. Enriched with nourishing vitamins and green tea extract, it also pampers the delicate skin in the brow area for a double dose of benefits.

 

Another way to tame especially uncontrollable brows is with a pair of scissors. The Tweezerman Brow Shaping Scissors and Brush Set ($16.59) is designed for this very reason. Instead of tweezers, you’ll use the scissors to deftly trim long brow hairs and precisely shape your brows to perfection. Use the included brush to test your work as you trim. Simply smooth your brows into shape after every snip until you’re satisfied with their shape. The key is to take it slow—if you rush, you run the risk of overcutting.

 

It’s not unusual to develop irritated skin after tweezing the area. Use a gentle treatment, like Anthony Logistics Cool Fix Rollerball Lip and Brow Formula ($14.29), to immediately soothe and nourish aggravated skin. Since it’s free of fragrances and parabens, it’s safe to use on even the most sensitive skin types, and can even be used after waxing to speed the healing process.

Skincare 101: Everything You Need to Know

 Choosing the right skincare products can be a tricky thing. Once you’ve settled on a regimen, you have to make sure you’re using your products in the right order, applying them at the right time of day, and treating your concerns effectively. It can be mind boggling simply navigating the skincare aisle at the drugstore! That’s why we’ve broken down the fine art of caring for your skin. Here’s everything you need to know.

 

Q: In what order should I use my skincare products?

It’s no good having a great collection of products if you aren’t applying them in the proper order. The first step is to remove all traces of dirt and debris with an effective cleanser formulated for your skin type. The goal is simply to start with a clean canvas. Make a commitment to exfoliate dry skin two to three times a week with a gentle scrub. Focus on those areas where clogged pores are most prominent, like your cheeks and nose.

Follow with a serum that’s packed with ingredients that target your skin’s unique needs. Formulas enriched with retinol’s and hyaluronic acids are designed to target aging, while nourishing oils lock in moisture for dry skin. Remember to pat your serum on—don’t rub. Next, pat eye cream on gently, taking care not to rub or tug the delicate skin in this area. Work your way from the outer corners of your eyes and down along the orbital bone. Then apply moisturizer. Your final step is sunscreen, which is essential if you’re headed outdoors.

 

Q: Can I use a face oil if I have oily skin? 

It may sound counterintuitive, but face oils are remarkably effective even on oily skin. They key is not to go overboard in your usage, and to stick with nourishing ingredients that help balance your skin. We like Peter Thomas Roth Oilless Oil 100% Purified Squalene ($23.99) for its gentle, non-comedogenic formula. If you find that most oils feel too heavy, look for a product specifically formulated as lightweight. You might also want to add just a drop to your nighttime moisturizer instead of slicking it onto your skin full throttle. Nighttime is definitely an important qualifier, too: your skin is less oily at night, so it’s best to apply your face oil right before you hit the sack.

 

Q: What’s the difference between a hydrator and a moisturizer?

Thought the terms are often used interchangeably, hydration and moisturization are two different concepts. Hydrators are designed to increase your skin’s water content, while moisturizers lock in moisture to prevent that water content from being lost. This is why it’s advisable to apply moisturizer to slightly damp skin—it’s the water that keeps skin hydrated, while the moisturizer seals that hydration and keeps skin soft and supple. For extra dry skin, we love Skinmedia HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator ($329.89) to really ramp up your skin’s ability to combat fine lines while maintaining a smoother, healthier complexion.

 

Q: How long should I wait before applying sunscreen?

 

You’ve slathered sunscreen all over your face and body about 20 minutes before heading outside. You’re good to go—for now, at least. Pay attention to your sunscreen’s SPF rating. That number indicates how much time you can safely spend in the sun before your skin starts to show signs of damage (like pinkness or redness). As a general rule of thumb, it’s a good idea to reapply sunscreen after two hours. If you’re using a water-resistant formula, note that their efficacy times may differ. So if you’re swimming or surfing, be sure to reapply as often as the packaging instructs. One of our favorite head-to-toe formulas is Avene Mineral Light Hydrating Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50+ for Face and Body ($24.99).

Get the Look for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is one of the most wonderful days of the year for beauty junkies. Whether or not you’re part of a duo, you’re guaranteed to fall in love with the fabulous selection of pretty pinks and reds at TheBeautyPlace.com. Shop for date night, for a special friend (Valentine’s Day can easily be GALentine’s Day for your BFFs!), or for your very special self, and enjoy these picks that are destined to make this Valentine’s Day the best yet.

Give the gift of perfect skin! The Clarisonic Mia 1 in Electric Pink ($97.79) is designed to reduce impurities that may contribute to troubled skin. With regular use, it diminishes the appearance of pores, helps eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, and smoothes the complexion to leave behind a more radiant finish. If you’re a little lazy about your skincare routine or know someone who is, this is the ultimate kick needed to get into the habit—and see real results quickly.

You’ve always been told not to brush wet hair, but things have changed with the advent of the Wet Brush Detangle in Punchy Pink ($7.99). Not only is it sure to be the cutest thing on your vanity, it’s also guaranteed to be one of the most useful. Use it to detangle wet or dry strands by simply running it through from your roots down. It’s designed specifically not to damage, and it won’t tug or break your strands. Instead, it makes hair even more manageable and easier to style. So you can rock that glam Valentine’s Day ‘do you’ve been envisioning.

When better than date night to sport flushed cheekbones? Achieve the look with Tigi Cosmetics Glow Blush in Brilliance ($15.99), a warm pink with a golden finish. The result is natural, colorful, and effortlessly pretty—it’s not unlike the glow you might experience after jogging around the neighborhood. In a pinch, you can even use this color on your eyelids to brighten up your entire look. The formula is light, but you can build it up easily for a more intense finish.

Wanted: A creamy lipstick with a stay-put formula that you can slick on and go. Found: Jane Iredale PureMoist Lipstick ($19.99), which ticks all of the boxes and goes well beyond expectation to deliver gorgeous results. It’s available in dozens of colors, but if you’re feeling especially festive you might want to try Margi, a brazen, no-fuss red that will probably turn a few heads. If you love the Valentine’s Day color spectrum but want to play it a bit safer, try Lucy, a soft, juicy pink that flatters nearly every skin tone.

The warm, alluring scent of vanilla adds the perfect finishing touch to your Valentine’s Day routine. At this time of year, a thick, nourishing moisturizer is practically law, and we think the Bliss Vanilla + Bergamot Body Butter ($21.69) is an essential that really stands up to the challenge. It delivers lasting hydration and is loaded with free radical-busting vitamins. It also exudes a light, pleasant scent that combines a hint of vanilla with sweet almond. It lingers but isn’t overpowering, and your skin will feel amazing.

 

The Do’s & Don’ts Of Self Tanning

Get ready to glow! With the winter season here, we’re not as exposed to the sun as we wish and our tan lines are most likely to be invisible. But don’t worry, there’s still hope that we can have our summer sun kissed skin even when the temperatures are going down. Do we even have to mention that tanning beds and lying out, with out sunscreen are not viable options? By now, you should know to practice safe sun and the only safe way to get a tan is to fake it. Faking it is far easier than you think, and rather inexpensive. However, there are some things to keep in my mind that you should and you shouldn’t do when doing self-tanning:

self-tanner_1

Do’s:

  1. Exfoliate your skin before: in order to get better results with self-tanning, your skin needs to be on great conditions. One way to prepare your skin is to exfoliate it at least 8 hours before. The Avene Akerat  ($25.99) is a smoothing, exfoliating cream for body. Ideal for dry to very dry skin types, it minimizes rough and hardened skin and improves the skin’s ability to retain moisture.
  1. Use an applicator: knowing how to get the perfect tan can take some time. If you’re pulling and rubbing at the skin when applying your self-tan you are likely causing streaks. That’s why we recommend a tan applicator, a mitt or a self-tanning product for beginners such as Tantowel Endless Tan Classic Kit ($16.99) This is a combination of the TanTowel Classic self-tanning towelettes and the clear liquid Tanning Mist. You won’t believe how easy is to apply it and get the tan everyone is dying to have!
  1. Moisturize to maintain your sexy tan longer! It is recommended to apply a good body lotion at least once a day. Not only to maintain a beautiful tan, but also to hydrate your skin. John Masters Organics Bare Unscented Body Lotion ($14.99) is ideal for all skin types and perfect to use every day.

c681cc599bbe810d93c66fef7bd227ed

Don’ts:

1.Don’t use anything with oil before self-tanning — no moisturizing products. It will get in the way of your tan. Self-tan needs to get right down to your skin without something blocking it.

2.Don’t layer It on! Your skin can only absorb a certain amount of product. Depending on how you apply. What we recommend is two decent coats or a few light layers is always sufficient. One of our favorite ones are Bliss FatGirlSlim Hide and Glow Sleek – Fair to Medium ($33.99) this tinted body firming spray contains Amazonian maracuja oil and caffeine to firm and reduce puffiness. It gives you that luminous glow and you won’t have to apply hundred on layers to get the tan you want.

3. Don’t shave immediately before applying. Shaving exfoliates the skin, leaving it supple and ready for bronzing, so it should be done before self-tanner is applied, just not right before since shaving can     open pores and create cuts. Prevent irritations and take your precautions.

Don’t forget to take into consideration these previous advices and achieve your desired golden glow without the dangerous effects of the sun!

The Must Have Products In Every Gym Bag

It’s a bit of a challenge to haul yourself to the gym before sunrise, but more often than not you get it done. What you do post-workout, though, is just as important as actually getting to the gym and completing your hardcore regimen. That’s because all that exercise has a tendency to do a number on your hair and skin. You don’t necessarily have to shower at the gym, but you should pack your gym bag with a few of these very essential items to take your workout game to the next level.

gym-essentials-2

No matter your hair type, you’ll probably have some sweat lingering on your scalp after your workout. Macadamia Professional Style Extend Dry Shampoo ($23.99) is a game-changer in the ever-burgeoning world of dry shampoos: it smells amazing, plumps hair up at the roots to provide some much-needed volume, and resists the usual powdery mess that is so typical of most of its counterparts. It contains hydrating argan and macadamia oils, both of which nourish your strands without weighing it down.

Those nightmare stories about breakouts that develop after a workout are no joke. Nip the problem in the bud by cleansing your skin with a powerful product, like Murad Clarifying Wipes ($15.99). They’re formulated to combat blemishes, remove dirt, sweat, and debris, and limit your skin’s excessive oil production. Swipe it over your face and neck after a workout to achieve an instantly fresh complexion.a274d5b420c9639472cd7a27e88fd0f0

To wear before, during, and after: Bliss Fabulips Glossy Balm ($11.99) absolutely nails it with an impressive formula that keeps lips continuously hydrated. It’s made with a hyper-moisturizing blend of shea butter and vitamin E, both of which deliver the goods on contact to leave your lips soft. There’s even a hint of mint to leave your breath smelling fresh. Dry air in the gym can really do a number on your lips in no time, so it’s a good idea to keep something like this on hand.

You don’t need to apply a full face of makeup after that fabulous workout session. Chances are you’re already sporting some pretty rosy cheeks, but if you want to boost your complexion while you’re running an after-gym errand, apply some Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain ($16.99) onto your cheekbones and call it a day. This is all you need to achieve that natural glow that mimics your skin’s innate beauty, and the twist-and-go formula is perfect for on-the-go touch ups.

Who actually wants to stow all of this stuff in an oversized gym bag and rummage around for it? What you need is a cute case to tote it in style, like this TIGI Cosmetics Bag ($1.99). An unbelievable deal, it’s sized just right for all of your essentials, and you can stick a few extras in there, too—think travel deodorant, hair ties, and a comb. P.S. Starting this week if you spend over $175 on SkinMedica Products you can receive a gift bag with four travel size SkinMedica products valued at over $105, that would be great additions to your gym bag.

This product does it all, and it’s earned all of the accolades for a good reason

The SPF Products You Need Now

Sunscreen is the most important ingredient you can add to your skin care routine. This potent product protects your skin from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. There are two types of UVA rays: UVA and UVB. UVA skins penetrate the skin deeply, and leave it susceptible to premature lines and wrinkles. Skin may appear leathery and droopy with repeated sun exposure. UVB rays, meanwhile, are the key cause of sunburns.

00-spf-lip-balms

At TheBeautyPlace.com, we recognize that there’s more to your beauty routine than simply looking great—it’s also about adding effective products to the mix that actually make a long-term difference in the condition of your skin. We carry an extensive range of products loaded with SPF, including makeup and skin care products. Here, the ones we suggest to help protect your skin from those dangerous UV rays.

Dry skin benefits from ultra-hydrating moisturizers that drench skin with much-needed emollients. One to try: PCA Skin Hydrator Plus Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($25.99). This enriching moisturizer is loaded with free radical-busting antioxidants that leave skin looking healthier over time.

If you wear makeup every day, you may as well choose a formula that offers more than just the standard coverage. bareMinerals Mineral Veil Finishing Powder SPF 25 ($17.99) is perfect for completing your look. It gives skin a natural, practically flawless finish, and it’s ideal to use on oily skin because it soaks up the sebum to prevent that telltale shiny gleam.

coola-eco-lux-sport-continuous-spray-spf50-unscented-8-oz-bfRain or shine, it’s smart to wear sunscreen year round. One of the easiest to use is COOLA ECO-LUX Sport Continuous Spray SPF 50 ($30.99). The spray-on formula is quick and easy to use, and it provides continuous, water-resistant coverage for up to 80 minutes. As it blocks those harmful UV rays, it also kisses skin with a fresh, fruity guava mango fragrance. It’s perfect for summer—but during those cooler months, it will remind you of the warmer months to come!

 

If you’re at all familiar with the no-makeup movement, you probably wish you could get on board with it. Try a tinted moisturizer, like Quitessence Sunshade SPF 30 Tinted ($22.99), which contains green tea and vitamins D and E to help repair existing damage while preventing further problems. It’s available in light, medium, and dark skin tones, so there’s one for everyone.

 

uvlipbalmtube_mediumDon’t forget your lips! Smooth and creamy, Elta MD UV Lip Balm Broad Spectrum SPF 30 ($9.99) is a water-resistant formula that combats the harsh effects of dry air. Your lips will feel softer for longer, and over time you’ll notice a visible improvement in the condition of your pout. Feel free to wear this over your favorite lipstick—it’s lightweight and colorless, so it’s perfect for adding a much-needed layer of protection.
