A Fool-Proof Guide to Beautiful Insta-brows

Beauty trends come and go, but the interest in brows is still as popular as ever. Our brows set the tone for the rest of our face and can either enhance (if they’re done well) or distract (if they’re done poorly) from our entire makeup look. Any makeup artist will tell you the secret to beautiful brows every time is having the right tools handy, good product and lots and lots of practice. Even if you’ve fallen victim to over-tweezing, there isn’t a brow problem that can’t be handled with a little magic of makeup. We narrowed down our five favorite products to master the Insta-brow each and every time. If you’re looking to perfect your eyebrow game, do yourself a favor and check out our must-have products!

How to Make the Most of Your Skincare Shopping Experience

Making the upgrade from drugstore skincare to high-end skincare can be an equally exciting and daunting experience if you’re not totally skincare savvy. While scanning reviews online is a good way to start, it shouldn’t be your lone guide to purchasing a new skincare regimen. Luckily, there are plenty of knowledgeable and helpful beauty advisors at Planet Beauty that can help you find products that will work best for your skin. If you’re thinking about investing in high-quality skincare, here are some helpful tips to make the most of your experience.

1. Address your needs: Before you even shop, think about what areas of concern you want to work on. Since so many skincare lines have customized lines, you can get overwhelmed quickly with the amount of choices you have. Jot down what concerns you the most about your skin and what areas you would like to improve. If there is a particular skincare line you’ve wanted to try, keep that in mind. If you’re curious about certain ingredients or if there is an ingredient you might be allergic to, write those down, as well.

2. Ask for samples: The ultimate goal of every beauty advisor is to help you find products you’re going to love using. Don’t be afraid to ask for a sample. One thing to keep in mind is that you won’t see results overnight from trying a sample, but you can at least get the feel of a product and test for allergic reactions if you have sensitive skin.

Kick off 2016 With These Six Beauty Resolutions!


With 2016 right around the corner, it's natural to start thinking about those New Year's resolutions. If you're looking for some inspiration, I invite you to try these small and simple beauty resolutions that will give you a great start to the new year! Start them on the 1st or whenever you feel changing things up. You can make a resolution at any time throughout the year. 

1. Shake up your beauty products: When it comes to our beauty routine, many of us are loyal to the brands and products we love. While you should always try to fix what isn't broken, you may be missing out on a product that could be working better for you. If the thought of buying a new product terrifies you, try asking for some samples first. 

2. Upgrade your skincare regimen: Whenever I ask customers why they love the skincare they're using oftentimes, I'm told they love it because it doesn't bother their skin. Finding a non-irritating skincare line is great, but shouldn't you love it because it makes your skin look amazing? Don't settle for a skincare product that does the bare minimum. If you're going to invest in your skin, make sure it's actually giving you results you love.

Eyelash and Brow Extensions now offered at Planet Beauty Bluffs

Exciting news, Newport Beach babes! Our Planet Beauty location at the Bluffs is now offering permanent lash extensions as well as semi-permanent brow extensions. Flaunting beautiful, full lashes and brows are all the rage right now and can really enhance your eyes and face. For anyone who doesn't have naturally long lashes or anyone with thin brows, extensions are game-changers.

If you're tired of struggling to fill your brows or wearing falsies every day, consider booking an appointment with Myra Jimenez at Planet Beauty Bluffs. If you're wondering how brow extensions work, this revolutionary technique recreates the natural look and feel of brows. Through art and science, semi-permanent adhesive and human hair are used to mimic natural growing brow hair. A delicate process, brow hair is carefully attached to existing individual hair, placing it directly on skin one hair at a time. Being gentle with extensions is key for longevity, but a professional application can last up to three weeks. For maintenance, it is recommended to stop in every two weeks for a fill. The shredding process of extensions is very unnoticeable, too. 

If you do decide to book an appointment, Myra is currently offering 10% for first-time  clients who want a full set of lash and brow extensions. If you refer someone else for a full set of extensions, you will also receive 50% off your fill. Myra is a licensed esthetician who is certified and experienced in lash and brow extensions. Check out some of her beautiful work and book your appointment today!

Manager Kick Off 2014

On January 22, Planet Beauty held its first annual Manager's Kick Off Meeting. It was hosted by the gracious team at Dermalogica at its headquarters in Carson, California. 

The morning started off with an energy-boosting breakfast and coffee, where managers were able to socialize and catch up with associates from different districts and teams. Managers as far as San Jose came together to share a day of motivation and camaraderie.

After breakfast, one group was led on a grand tour of Dermalogica's beautiful facilities, while another group had a one on one  training on face-mapping, Dermalogica's key foundation to customizing skin care. The highlight of the morning was none other  than Dermalogica founder Jane Wurwand and guest speaker Annette King, who gave inspirational words about attaining s  success, finding purpose in chosen careers and being part of a fast-growing beauty industry. Both women shared ideas on how  to continue providing great customer service, which seems like a disappearing commodity in today's retail world. With Planet  Beauty's rapid growth, it was insightful for managers to hear Mrs. Wurwand share her personal story, as well as her passion for  Dermalogica and philanthropical work. It was definitely an honor and a treat for a company that is currently run primarily by  female managers.

After breaking for lunch, Training Manager Breean Carter spoke about making meaningful connections as a thriving business and  shared some exciting insight into upcoming changes for 2014. Managers then participated in 15 minute workshops where  associates exchanged ideas covering a range of topics from customer service to running a successful store. 

PB <3s JDRF!

There is nothing more beautiful than giving back, which is why Planet Beauty annually partners with a charitable organization to raise awareness for a cause.  On December 5th, Planet Beauty teamed up with JDRF, an organization that’s fighting to end Type One diabetes, to host a fundraiser to benefit the organization.  Twenty percent of the events sales went to JDRF, and helps take them one step closer to achieving their goal of ending juvenile diabetes. charity event rffle basket 300x200 Give Back with PB and JDRF!

All in all, the Buffs and 300 of our guests raised over $7,500 to donate to JDRF in the fight against Type One Diabetes.
