Listen up, guys! Are you complaining about that seven-day Movember itch yet? Is your beard snowing like a White Christmas? Are you growing stubble too rough for your partner to kiss? Whatever your beard-ache might be, Meaghan Grigoleit, a barber at Old Glory Barber Shop in Venice Beach, California, recommends treating your beard to Layrite’s Concentrated Beard Oil! As a barber, she’s had her share of experiences with different beard oils. “Even if you’ve tried other beard oils,” Meaghan says, “You’ve never experienced a beard oil like this before.” Not only does she swear by this oil for clients, but she’s got her own boyfriend hooked.

Layrite’s new beard oil is revolutionary. The formula is thicker, easy to apply and doesn’t feel sticky or greasy on your manly beard.  Expertly formulated by barbers, its thicker consistency delivers superb moisturization to hair and skin, leaving your beard feeling softer, healthier and well-groomed.

The thicker formula and tube design also eliminates the annoying droppers and too-tiny caps that make other beard oils messy and hard to dispense. No one has time for messy application, especially if you’re trying to minimize your grooming time. When it comes to beard oil formulations, thicker is better. Layrite breaks it down for you guys:

   • Thicker means it’s easier to apply, making your beard faster to groom and easier to maintain.

Now Trending: Glossy Lids and Dark Lips

If you’re an avid beauty magazine reader, then you’ve most likely stumbled upon beauty trends that just don’t seem practical to wear out in the real world. (I’m looking at you, graphic eye liner.) Now, I’m not entirely knocking out-of-the-box beauty trends, but some are just better than others and look chic rather than sloppy or weird. One of those beauty trends is the glossy eyelid.

A runway-look favorite, glossy lids have been flaunted by both Beyonce and Kim Kardashian on several occasions. Glossy lids bring attention to the eyes in a way that’s different from other eye makeup looks. There’s something about a glossy lid that immediately gives off a fresh, youthful appearance. It also looks effortless in a way that can’t be compared with other eye shadow trends where a lack of blending can ruin the look or make you look like a hot mess.

We Are Loving these '90s Beauty Trends!

Like style trends, beauty trends have a way of making comebacks decades later, especially when they were popular to begin with. This year, we’ve seen the ‘90s make a huge comeback both in the fashion and beauty world. From plaid and floral skater dresses to leather and denim jackets, we’re feeling quite nostalgic for the ‘90s this season. Now, if you’re someone who completely embraces comebacks, then feel free to indulge in those Doc Martens and flannel skirts you bought at the thrift shop and still haven’t worn. If you prefer to pay homage to the ‘90s in a subtler way, then check out our 3 easy steps to creating a ‘90s vibe without going overboard. 

If you’re not fond of plaid prints or clunky boots but love wearing accessories, chokers are the IT accessory of the season! One of the best things about chokers is that they come in so many varieties of colors, designs and materials. You can wear them alone or layer them and the best part is you can easily dress them up or down, depending on the occasion. Planet Beauty now carries l’eminence accessories at some of our locations, so you can find a cute choker while you shop for the latest eyeshadow palette.

Gypsy Makeup Inspired by MUA Brookelle McKenzie

We’ve been on Halloween makeup watch on Instagram and we are loving all the amazing looks and tutorials some of our favorite makeup artists and social media influencers are creating! While it’s hard to pick just one look we love the most, we can’t stop obsessing over Brookelle McKenzie’s gypsy makeup on Instagram: @bybrookelle.

Whenever there’s an opportunity for a smoky eye, we’re not going to pass it up. A smoky eye is typically reserved for nights and weekends but since it’s Halloween, we’re going to make the exception! Besides, this is one look you’ll want to save and recreate again just for fun. To put together our gypsy Halloween look, we used a variety of products from Stila Cosmetics, Smashbox Cosmetics, Gorgeous Cosmetics and Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics.

The Three Eyebrow Trends To Master This Fall

Great eyebrows are a trend we never want to see disappear! The last few seasons have been all about celebrating your natural eyebrow shape. To help you stay up-to-date with the latest eyebrow trends, we spoke to the experts at jane iredale to get the brow-grooming tricks of Fall/Winter 2016.

Eyebrow Basics

Before you dive into fall eyebrow trends, here's a refresher on how to shape your eyebrows like a pro.

1.    Point A: To find out where your brow should begin, align the flat edge of a straight makeup brush to the outside of your nose/inner corner of your eye.

2.    Point B: Your true arch is found by taking your brush and laying it diagonally from your nostril to the outside edge of your iris.

3.    Point C: Determine where your brow should end by using your brush to create a line from the outside corner of your nose diagonally to the outside corner of your eye.

Sugar Skull Makeup You Can Recreate in 30 Minutes or Less!

Sugar skull makeup is super popular for Halloween and it seems like just about every makeup artist on Instagram is creating their own spin on it. If you’re anything like me, then you’ve undoubtedly spent countless hours on YouTube watching Halloween makeup transformations, wishing you could master the same level of skill and artistry. Unless you have zero life commitments and nothing but time, practicing your Halloween makeup skills isn’t going to be on your list of major priorities. (You’re probably still trying to master that winged liner, right?)

If you really don’t want to spend money on makeup you’re only going to use for one day or stress out over recreating a look that’s way out of your comfort zone, you can still create a Halloween look that looks fantastic and requires products you may already have in your makeup bag. We teamed up with one of our talented makeup artists to bring you looks that are easy to do and won’t take hours to perfect.
