Love Your Skin With Complexion Rescue

bareMinerals new Complexion Rescue has arrived at Planet Beauty and I'm so excited to invite you to come in and give it a try. I've always been a huge fan of any makeup that has skincare benefits. After all, if you're going to wear something all day long, it might as well help your skin out. Complexion Rescue is already creating buzz among dedicated fans of bareMinerals, and it is sure to be a customer favorite at Planet Beauty in the coming months.

No one likes the feeling of dry and dehydrated skin and finding the perfect balance of moisture can prove difficult at times. If you've experienced dryness or dehydration first-hand, then you'll know the feeling of wanting to avoid heavy face makeup. This gel-cream formulation is the perfect solution for anyone in search of a sheer to medium finish. The perfect combination of a BB cream, CC cream and tinted moisturizer, Complexion Rescue helps restore much-needed hydration to dry and dehydrated skin and leaves a beautiful, radiant finish. Made with marine botanicals, skin is left feeling dewy, refreshed and soothed. It also contains a non-chemical SPF 30 for protection from the sun and is made without silicone, oils, parabens and fragrance. Ten different shades are available to choose from, so stop by your local Planet Beauty to find your customized tone.

Get Fresh-Faced with Modern Pop

Bare Escentuals has launched their Modern Pop collection and it is going to be a hit with Twiggy fans everywhere. This 60's mod-inspired collection comes with three lipstick shades, a quad eyeshadow palette, classic cream-colored eyeliner, Lash Domination mascara and a creamy glaze lip topcoat for a look that's youthful, gorgeous and totally mod.

The Modern Icon quad palette features four beautiful shades for the perfect mod look: smokey taupe, peach sherbet, natural amethyst and pink cashmere. Just like the other READY eyeshadows, these high pigmented shades last up to 12 hours and are made with bareMinerals' proprietary SeaNutritive Mineral Complex, which helps deliver skin-nourishing benefits that fight the appearance of fine lines, puffiness and wrinkles. No look is complete without eyeliner. The Modern Pop Eyeliner in Classic Cream is perfect to use on your water line to really make your eyes pop. You can also use this liner for brightening the inner and outer corners of your eyes. 

The three Modern Pop Marvelous Moxie Lipstick shades are going to be a huge hit this spring. Express Yourself (Bright Peach), Fall In Love (Tawny Peach) and Dream Big (Nude Peach) are highly-pigmented and creamy for a full coverage while looking satiny and smooth. Whether you buy just one or all three, you will be wearing these shades through the end of summer. Enriched with Abyssinian Oil, Omega fatty acids and encapsulated vitamins A, C and E, your lips will be moisturized, nourished and protected for a healthy, voluptuous pout. Soften the look of your lipstick with the Modern Pop Cream Glaze Lip Topcoat. The sheer pearl gloss takes any lip color you own and transforms it into a shiny and creamy pastel lip shade. You can also wear it alone for a classic, glossy lip.

Back-To-School Beauty Must-Haves

It's back-to-school time, which means long hours at the library and endless cups of coffee to get you through classes without falling asleep. It can be a hectic time, and let's be honest--hitting the snooze button is a lot easier than getting up to style your hair. However, just because school's a priority again doesn't mean you can't look fresh and fabulous as you make your way to finals season. If you're in need of some no-fuss beauty tips, check out my back-to-school must-haves. 

1. No-fuss foundation: If you still want your skin to look flawless, but don't have a lot of time to apply it, I suggest going for light foundation that blends seamlessly into your skin. bareMinerals foundation is always a winner because even the lightest application adds a flattering glow. Another great option is Gorgeous Cosmetic's Base Perfect Liquid foundation. It's oil free and contains antioxidant Vitamins A and E for a beautiful, silky finish. For very minimal coverage and a load of skincare benefits, consider Dr. Perricone's No Foundation Foundation. 

2. Dry Shampoo: Let's face it, when you have an early morning class, shampooing your hair is the last thing on your mind. Plus, any extra time you can spend sleeping is always a plus. A good dry shampoo will refresh your hair, remove excess oils and give you some volume and texture for an easy, ready to go style. Pureology's Fresh Approach Dry Shampoo has a wonderful scent, absorbs oils and leaves a nice satin finish. You can follow it up with Fresh Approach Dry Condition to help eliminate static and frizz.

Eye-Opening Tips and Tricks

Sometimes, keeping busy during the summer months cause us to neglect some of our much-needed rest. Whether you're a busy mom who's been trekking back and forth between summer camps or just a single gal who's been spending a little extra time with the girls, it's easy to lose out on some shut eye. Our eyes are always giving away how tired we are, but it doesn't mean you still can't look your best and trick those around you into believing you get 8 hours of sleep every night. Check out these eye-opening tricks to make you look rested and rejuvenated daily. 

1. Start with a good eye cream: Whether you're concerned with puffy eyes or dark circles, you have to use an eye cream to give your under eyes the much-needed hydration and love they deserve. Rodial's Dragon's Blood Eye Gel targets puffiness and dryness with Rose Water, Dragon's Blood and Arnica. Hyaluronic Acid helps restore hydration, helping soothe dry under eyes and smoothing out fine lines. This gel formula cools and soothes upon application, which is a great morning pick-me-up. 

2. Incorporate an under eye brightener: bareMinerals never disappoints with the Well-Rested Face and Eye Brightener. The sheer formula is lightweight, making it easy to blend underneath the eyes for instant radiance and luminosity. For a little color, try their Stroke of Light Eye Brightener. These awesome brighteners come in 3 shades and instantly diffuse darkness under eyes, while reducing dark circles and wrinkles over time. These are ideal for anyone who doesn't want a heavy concealer.

Trends Spotted at the Billboard Music Awards

The Billboard Music Awards are always fun to watch, not just for the artists performing, but for the edgy fashion and beauty trends seen on the red carpet. Celebrities seem to take more liberties with their style and the atmosphere is a lot more casual, which can lead to some interesting choices in hair and makeup. Here's what we loved about the red carpet beauty trends.

Edgy hair color: Both Ke$ha and Kylie Jenner rocked pink and turquoise hair, respectively. Ke$ha's hair was dyed entirely, while Kylie rocked dipped turquoise tips, which looked really fun with her long bob. If you've been wanting to experiment with fun colors, Jerome Russell has Punky Colors, which deposits temporary color while conditioning hair. Of course, this product works best on bleached hair, but you can even use it on dark hair to create some fun highlights. Or, if you're really feeling brave, call your local Planet Beauty and see if any of the stylists specialize in funky colors. You can always try a few peek-a-boo highlights and take it from there.
