Kiss Tired Eyes Goodbye with These 4 Must-Have Products

Getting eight hours of beauty sleep is essential to maintaining a youthful and bright appearance; however, as we all know, that isn’t always possible. Between balancing busy schedules, work and home life, some of us are lucky to get a solid six hours of sleep. If you’re a mama bear to little ones, those hours are most likely even shorter. Catching those precious zzzz’s sometimes feels like a game you just can’t win. Losing sleep not only leads to non-stop yawning, but it also shows up right under your eyes. The appearance of dark circles and puffy eyes isn’t flattering on anyone and can make you look older than you are.

Lucky for us, there are so many wonderful beauty products out there that can help you appear well-rested and refreshed, even when you find yourself running on low batteries. While concealer can work wonders, it isn’t always the best option. If used incorrectly (like applying globs and globs of it), it can have the opposite effect, making your under-eye area appear crepey and more tired. Using a concealer isn’t your only option, either. If you truly want to make your eyes look refreshed, you’re going to want to use a few products to get the job done.

These timeless trends always come in handy when you want to look your absolute best but don’t feel like getting adventurous. As we head into the holiday season, your calendar is going to quickly fill up with holiday parties and possibly, work events. Before you pull out that red lipstick that’s been sitting in your bag since last December, consider one of our favorite classic looks for the holiday season: Sleek hair, smoky eyes and nude lips. This look will not only make you look polished, but it will spare you the discomfort of wearing that dreaded red lipstick you don’t even love.  

Nude Makeup Is The Hottest Red Carpet Trend Right Now

The MTV Video Music Awards were this past Sunday and it's official---Nudes are IN! (Nude makeup, that is!) This Sunday, the Red Carpet was flooded with bold outfit choices and sultry, nude makeup that focused on the eyes and lips. Where daring choices are normally applauded at the VMAs, this week proved that nude makeup can make a smoldering statement when it comes to beauty. We narrowed down our favorite looks from the 2016 VMAs and picked our favorite beauty products to recreate the gorgeousness from home. 

We loved everything about Hailey Baldwin's look at the VMAs. Her smokey bronzed eye and textured messy lob paired perfectly with her see-through jumpsuit. To create her tousled tresses, we love Matrix's Mess Maker from their Style Link Series. This lightweight sea salt spray gives the right amount of hold and texture without making the hair look dirty or matted. To copy her bronzed smokey eye, our go to product is Smashbox's versatile eyeshadow trio in Screenshot. Complete her look with the new Gen Nude Lipstick from bareMinerals in XOX. This dusty rose shade will give you a medium wash of color, while leaving your lips moisturized and ready to conquer the day.

Glow Like a Goddess With Our Summer Favorites

Getting a beautiful bronzed glow for the summer doesn’t mean you have to compromise your skin and spend hours under the sun. As a matter of fact, you don’t need to spend any time under the sun at all! If you’re looking to bronze up this summer without a burn, then you’ll need some of our favorite products to get that golden goddess look.

The first step to getting a bronzed look is creating a smooth base. We used Smashbox’s Studio Skin Foundation to create our summer makeup look. This buildable foundation not only covers imperfections, but also hydrates the skin for a natural-looking, demi-matte finish.  To conceal the under eye area and other problem areas, we chose bareMinerals’ bareSkin concealer for its silky smooth finish. High-definition mineral optics in the formula work to smooth out imperfections and create a brightened, luminous appearance. Achieving the ultimate golden glow requires some contouring to enhance the facial features and warm up the face naturally. For our look, we used Smashbox’s Contour Kit in Deep. To highlight, we went the warmer route and chose Laura Geller’s Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Gilded Honey. This sheer powder is caramel honey colored and infuses the skin with that warm, summer-like glow.

Get Ready for Summer With Our June Beauty Picks

Summer is just around the corner, which means it’s time for more fun in the sun! This also means we’re all going to be a little more vulnerable to the sun’s damaging UV rays. While protecting yourself against UV rays should be a year-round habit, you should be extra diligent during summer when you’re spending more time outdoors. Before you go on that summer weekend getaway or vacation, make sure you pack our June Beauty picks along for the ride!

With more visits to the beach and pool, the moisture and vibrancy in our hair can quickly become compromised. Chlorine and saltwater can dry our ends and make our hair look dull and lifeless. One way to keep your hair looking gorgeous all summer long is using a moisturizing leave-in conditioner. This June, we love Rene Furterer’s Okara Radiance Enhancing Spray to protect your hair.  This two-phase leave in conditioner is formulated with Rene’s Okara Extract which helps to repair hair at a deeper level. A hamamelis extract works to keep the bond between the hair’s keratin and color to maintain vibrancy while a double UV filter and antioxidant Vitamin E gives your hair the much-needed protection it needs against UV rays and damaging free radicals. A lightweight spray, hair is gently detangled and prepped for thermal styling. The lightweight feel of this spray also makes it ideal for your entire family. The fresh scent of grapefruit, peach, raspberry and rose instantly awaken your senses and invigorate your spirit.

If you immediately recoil at the thought of wearing a foundation for the fear of that “masked” feeling, then by all means, skip the foundation! Tinted moisturizers disappear right into your skin, while offering some amazing skincare benefits. jane iredale’s Dream Tint has been one of their customer favorites for years and comes as no surprise. Lightweight minerals give a sheer to medium coverage while Algae Extract hydrates your skin and shields it against moisture loss.
