Blackheads can be such a hassle, ya know? They can make your skin so clogged and yucky. There is a way to give yourself an in-home facial that will clear those pores right up! Here is how to give yourself a facial steam!

downloadAll you need is a large bowl and some semi-hot water. Soak a washcloth in the water, wring it out, and then press it to your face. Repeat this step a couple of times. Once you are done with this, take your face and lead it towards the bowl, hovering your face over the hot water. Then, place a towel over your head to make sure no hot air escapes. The hot air will open up your pores so you can clean them out and it takes the oil and dirt build up off of your skin! Keep your head leaned over the bowl for about 5 minutes to allow the hot water to do its thing. After that, wash it with a good exfoliating face wash and moisturize!

 

Who knew getting an at-home facial could be that easy!

If you have dark blue eyes, then gold and peach is the way to go. Wear a peach cardigan with some dark jeans to emphasize your eyes!download

If you have light brown lookers, then honey brown and green are the colors for you. Toss on a honey brown blouse to make those eyes sparkle! If you have dark brown eyes then olive green and camel brown are your colors. I absolutely love olive green, and I have dark brown eyes, so this works out perfect for me! I grab an olive green blazer and pair it with dark skinnies to make my eyes pop.chelsea crockett

3. If you have dark/light green or hazel eyes:

If you have pale green eyes then lavender and blue-gray clothing is the thing for you. Throw on a lavender headband or scarf! If you have dark green eyes then choose plum and peach clothing if you want to make your eyes sparkle. Try pairing plum-colored pants with a light peach top!

 1. More is more: You know what washes you out like a snowman in January? A camera flash! The flash will wash out colors no matter what. Do not worry about putting too much blush or eye shadow on, the flash will even it out.

2. Blend: When talking about concealer, contouring, and eye shadow, the quality of your brushes is key. The camera flash will bring out those unblended edges and create a clown-like look, and unblended concealer highlights fine lines.

3. Mellow with yellow: When you are setting your makeup, go with a yellow powder rather than a translucent powder. Similar to SPF, translucent powders cast a

CHelsea crockett primer

1. Go lighter: Avoid going too dark when it comes to your shade of foundation. Have a makeup professional match you with your perfect shade! (You can go to places like Beauty Brands, or even to the makeup counter at Walgreens, and they will totally help you out!)

2. Matte it up: For cheeks, avoid shimmery powder, and when it comes to eye shadow, keep the shimmer strictly on your lids.

3. Prime focus: Primer is vital for making your makeup last. Oil-free versions are the best and also sensitive-skin friendly.

4. Hold off on the..: SPF! Your primer and foundation should be SPF-free. Products that contain SPF cast a ghostlike glow with the camera flash.

5. Line it up: When you are lining your eyelids, start in the center and work your way to the outer edge. When you line the entire lid, you will cause the eyes to appear smaller. Use a slanted brush with a dark shadow to line the lower lash line.

 

Stay tuned for part 2! Get ready to say cheese!

Who likes spending hours brushing, drying, and then curling their hair? Not many people enjoy this loooonnngg process, but they love the end result! What If I told you that there was a way to curl your hair using nothing but paper towels?  There is a new method of curling hair that I just discovered that takes about 20 minutes to accomplish and doesn’t damage your hair whatsoever! Ladies and gentlemen,  I introduce paper towel curls!

Wash and comb your hair as you usually would. Let it dry a little bit so it isn’t sopping wet.  Start taking sections of your hair, the smaller the section the tighter the curl, and roll the hair the hair into 2 inch strips of paper towel just like you roll a curler. Tie the ends of the paper towel together tight so that it will hold all night.  The paper towels will absorb the water in your hair, so it will dry overnight. In the morning, unwrap the paper towels and DSC_0088presto! Beautiful bouncy curls. Take your fingers and run them through the curls to loosen them up a bit, and mist them with hairspray to help them stay in all day. You can save the strips of paper towel for next time you want to do this hair style so you don’t have to cut the strips all over again.

This hair style saves so much time, and it doesn’t require you to use heat so you can save your hair some damage! Score! If you try this hair style, comment below and let me know how it works out for you!

XOXO, Chels

Putting on eyeshadow is an art. Did you know that there is a certain order that you are supposed to apply your eyeshadow in? By using these simple steps you can maximize the effects of your eyeshadow and make your eyes pop! Here they are:

chelsea crockett

  1. On the inside of your eyelid, the part closest to your nose, is where you focus the lightest shade.
  2. In the middle of your lid, transition from the light shade to a medium shadow color.
  3. On the outside edge of your lid is where you focus the darker “smokey” color
  4. Use a transition color to blend the dark outside color and middle color together. Check out the diagram to see how to do it!

I use these tips all the time, so I know that you will love them! Try them out and comment below and tell me if they work for you!

Do you have thin hair and wish that you had thick hair? I have super thick hair, and I thank God every day for it. For girls who have thin hair, finding ways to do it it can sometimes be quite a chore. Having thick locks can open up your styling options quite a bit! Here are a few tricks to make fine hair look thick!

  1. Watch your conditioner. This is where a lot of products can weigh down your hair. Steer clear of anything that says “smoothing” and “hydrating” on the bottle because these products most likely have oils in them which keep your hair from gaining volume.chelsea crockett
  2. Blow drying. Your first step should be to spray your locks with heat protectant. Flip your hair upside down and blow dry it with a round brush. After the dampness is gone, flip your head back up and blow dry the rest in sections.
  3. Velcro Rollers are your best friend. I am in love with these babies. Set the front pieces of your hair in the velcro rollers and clip them in for around 20 minutes to get mega volume.
  4. Tease tease tease! Let the rollers out and lightly tease the parts of hair at the crown of your head.

If you have fine or thin hair, these tips will be a lifesaver! Try em out and comment below!

Best Lipstick For Your Skin Tone

So you are at the lipstick section at the store, and you are surrounded by 23847 different shades of lipstick (okay, maybe not THAT many), and you are thinking “how in the world so I know which one looks best on me?!”. The best way to determine which lipstick will look best for you is by seeing which one complements your skin tone.

 For my pale skinned ladies:

Nude shades are the best for people with pale skin. Think peachy lipsticks and nude colored glosses. If you are looking for a bold, glamorous look, try red lipstick!

Chelsea crockett Mac-Nude-Lipstick

 If you have dark skin:

You girls are lucky! Anything goes with darker complexions. Try orange or coral shades for a fun pop of color. Also, don’t forget to load up on the gloss to show off your full lips. Avoid milky or chalky colors with a lot of white in them because they will contrast with your skin tone too much.

 If you have olive-toned skin:

If you have olive-toned skin, such as Italian or Hispanic heritage, then the options are pretty open for you lovely ladies! For a super fab look, try coral lipstick! It is super hot right now. Some shades you should steer clear of are purple, which will accentuate the yellow undertones in your skin and give you a sallow look, and two, brown, which can look too monochromatic.Chelsea crockett coral lipstick

Now slather on some lipstick and knock ’em dead!

Olive Oil Treatment for Damaged Hair

Are you grossed out by the nastiness that you call your hair? Is your mane damaged beyond compare? Do your split ends have split ends? Never fear, Chelsea is here! Now don’t get grossed out when I tell you the ingredients to this hair treatment. Hang with me here ladies. This treatment requires olive oil……and a raw egg. There, I said it. But no worries, once you feel how silky smooth your hair is after this treatment, you will want to have raw egg in your hair all the time! (Okay, maybe I took that one a bit too far..) But on a serious note, this treatment is totally worth sitting with raw egg in your hair for a bit. Read on, Insiders!

Step 1:

Chelsea Crockett Olive Oil

Warm about 1/4 of a cup of olive oil in the good ‘ole microwave. Then, mix in that lovely egg.

Step 2:

Work that fabulous mixture into your locks. Put a shower cap over that noggin of yours and let the mixture sit on your hair for 30-60 minutes. While it is in your hair, you can kill time by reading a book, browsing articles on ChelseaCrockett.com (hint hint 😉  ), whatever floats your boat!

Step 3:

Rinse all that goo out of your hair and shampoo and condition that mane! You may have to shampoo twice to get all of that oil out.

Step 4:

Feel your silky smooth locks and tell yourself how happy you are that you checked out this very article.

How super duper easy was that?! Now comment below and tell me how this works out for ya!

Washing your hair: You’re doing it wrong! I had no idea that I was making so many mistakes! Here is an inside look on how to get the most out of your shower.

 1. If you have long hair, condition first.

Yes, you read right! If your hair is past your shoulders, you can protect your ends by running a small amount of conditioner through them and lightly rinsing, before you shampoo. This not only keeps your ends healthy, it will boost your shine! 

2. Lather up at the scalpwoman-shampooing

You really only need to lather up at your scalp! The hair closest to the scalp is the youngest and oiliest, and the hair at the ends is the oldest and driest! The best way to shampoo is from roots to ends.

5. Don’t rinse and repeat.
There is no need to wash your hair twice.  You can avoid stripping and drying out your hair by only shampooing once. If your hair is super oily, then you can lather up a second time.

I hope these tips give you shiny, voluminous hair, ladies!

XOXO, Chels

I was on Pinterest this week and discovered something really cool! I found a recipe for all natural homemade mascara! Now some of you may be thinking “I’d rather buy mine from the store, thank you very much,” but then there are those who may say “bring it on!” Some people cannot wear store bought mascara because they are allergic to the chemicals in the makeup, so this is a great alternative for them! There are also ladies who just feel more comfortable knowing what they are putting on their eyes, so they like to make their own! Whatever your reason, this handy dandy recipe may be just what you are looking for!

 Ingredients:

2 tbs coconut oilmascara

4 tsp aloe vera gel

½ tsp grated bees wax pellets (you can find this on Amazon)

1-2 capsules activated charcoal (you can buy this at most health food stores or online)

1 clean mascara container

 

Directions:

1. Put the coconut oil, aloe vera gel, and bees wax in a small sauce pan over low heat. Stir until wax is completely melted.

2. Open 1-2 capsules of activated charcoal, depending on how dark you want it, and pour it into the sauce pan along with the other ingredients. Stir the mixture until all of the ingredients are blended together. Remove it from heat.

3. Pour the mixture into a small plastic bag and push it down to one corner. Cut a very small hole in the opposite corner of the bag.

4. Stick the cut-open corner of the bag into the empty mascara container and squeeze in the mixture(CAREFULLY). And there you have it! All natural, made by you, how much better can it get?

Hey Insiders,

Today I am going to fill you in on some of the best kept secrets in the world of beauty. You might be surprised at what you find!

1. Do you have dry brittle hair? Here’s a great trick.  Use mayo as a hair mask! It may smell kind of disgusting while you are applying it, but it gives you’re a hair a quick picker upper. The oils and fats in mayo give your hair moisture and a shiny sheen. There is also egg in mayo, which works to strengthen your luscious locks.

2. Don’t pick at a chipped nail. If you cant stand having cracks in your nail polish and cannot get to a salon, check this tip out. Grab something small and sharp (items like toothpicks, or the tip of a pin works) and swipe a tiny bit of nail glue into the crack, let it dry, and then paint over it with a base coat and polish.

3. Get shiny hair in seconds. Douse your hair in ice water. The cold of the water seals your cuticles. This makes your hair look smoother, silkier, and shinier. The one warning I will give you is not to dip your scalp in the water if you are prone to brain freezes. If you can handle cold water, working it into your scalp is actually very beneficial to hair growth. The cold stimulates your hair follicles and promotes hair growth.

4. Use Pam help solidify your manicure. By spraying Pam cooking spray on your freshly painted nails, it is preventing them from smudging or getting divots. Oil helps them dry faster!

 5. Got super oily hair and need a quick fix? Snatch up a packet of plain dry oatmeal. It absorbs oil just as well as powder and dry shampoo, and it’s easy to brush out. It is also super cheap and you can find it around your house!

Are you surprised at what you have found? I know I was.
