Halloween is the one night of the year where you get to be whatever you want to be.  There are so many different costumes and makeup looks you can try out to make it the best Halloween yet!  Mermaid costumes are easy to pull off and fun to create a makeup look for.  Here’s an easy makeup tutorial you can try out this Halloween!

Chelsea Crockett - Mermaid Makeup Look

First, let’s focus on the eyes.  You’ll need to apply a teal or lighter blue eyeshadow base on your lids to begin.  Next, take a darker blue and apply it to your brow bone to give your eyes some more depth.  Now, pick a bright purple and apply this to your lower lash line and up to the outer corner of your lid.  Make sure you blend!  You can even add some glitter and shimmer to make your eyes pop even more.

Next comes the fun part.  You’ll need a pair of classic fish net tights to create the “mermaid scale” effect on your skin!  Take your pair of leggings and slide them over your head (try not to mess up your eyeshadow!).  Take a brush covered in purple eyeshadow and dab the brush over the tights on your cheek bone.  You can even incorporate some pinks and blues into your scales as well.  After you’re finished, I suggest taking scissors and cutting off the tights to make sure you don’t smear your product!  Then, you’re finished! 🙂

What are you going to be this Halloween?  Let me know in the comment section below (I need ideas… Haha!).

When styling your hair into curls, there are two categories: fresh curls and messy curls. Both are great styles and are worn for different reasons. Fresh curls are meant to look pretty and put-together, whereas messy curls are a more “everyday” “effortless” casual look. I love the way my hair looks when it is freshly curled. The curls are all bouncy and shiny! Buuuuut, there is something to be said about “second day” curls. They are looser, messier, and give off that “effortless” look. Want to know how to get “second day” curls without having to sleep on them/wait a whole day? Stay tuned!mcx-beach-sprays-ogx

  1. The first step is to divide your hair into sections and curl it how you normally do. You can use a curling iron, wand, straightener, whichever you prefer!
  2. Okay, so after you have curled all of your hair, take your fingers and run them through your hair. The goal is to loosen up the curls and separate them. You can also use a wide-toothed comb for this step instead of your fingers!
  3. Take some dry shampoo or texture spray and spray it throughout your hair, on the roots and the curls. This will “dirty up” your hair and make it a little messier. I also use sea salt spray to mess it up a bit.

See how easy it is to get “second day” curls on the first day? Super-duper easy! Let me know in the comment section if your “second day” curls turned out cute!

How to Make the Perfect Messy Bun

Why is it that messy buns are harder to do than regular buns? The disheveled, effortless, “undone” look is way harder to achieve than people think. I wish I could look like I rolled out of bed with great messy hair, but I can never seem to get it right. Luckily I found a fool-proof way to get the perfect messy bun every time. Here is how!

  1. Pull your hair into a loose ponytail as high or low as you want. Don’t worry about smoothing out bumps or slicking your hair back, you want it to look imperfect.Messy-Buns-Blonde-Hair
  2. Separate the hair in your pony into 2 sections and tease them. Teasing is the key! It will change your bun game by giving you texture and volume.
  3. Take your 2 teased sections and wrap the hair in opposite directions like you are creating a topknot. Instead of pinning your hair neatly into a bun, pin bobby pins near the ends of your hair, leaving the ends splay out around the bun. This gives it the messy look! Pull the bun apart a little with your hands to mess it up even more.

The best part about messy buns is that they work better on dirty hair, so they work great on second-day hair, AKA you can sleep in longer instead of washing your hair! 🙂

Christmas Hair: Pullthrough Braid

Christmas is just around the corner, and with Christmas comes Christmas parties! With Christmas parties comes Christmas outfits, and with Christmas outfits comes Christmas hair! So, without further ado, here is a fun, pretty hair style for your Christmas party needs: the pull-through braid. PS. This style works best on thick, long hair.

  1. Pull your hair into a high ponytail and secure it with an elastic. Split your hair into 3 groups once it is in the ponytail. Wrap one of the sections (a small section) around the ponytail to hide it.braid
  2. Split the section of hair underneath your ponytail in half and wrap it around to the front. Secure it with an elastic. It should look like you have a little ponytail in front of your big one. See the picture for clarification.
  3. Keeping your spacing even, continue splitting the underside hair in half and wrapping it around to the front, then securing it. Keep doing this until you have reached the length that you want your braid to be. Secure all the loose ends with an elastic.
  4. Now to my favorite part! Pull apart the sections of the “braid” to make it fuller and bigger.

I love this look because it is unique and looks so interesting from the back. If you are someone who prefers wearing their hair up or if you just want to switch things up, this hair style is great for you!

XOXO, Chels

As you know, I am somewhat of a “no heat hair style” kind of girl. I found a totally new way to curl my hair without heat and I am totally pumped about it! YouTuber Kayley Melissa did a tutorial on it. It is called “heatless halo curls” and all you need is an old t-shirt or bandana to make these curls happen!496fb45a003fbff38c0aaee262bf84cd

  1. Make sure your hair is damp. Grab a t-shirt or bandana (I prefer to use a bandana) and twist it, tying the ends together with a pony tail holder to make it into a halo.
  2. Brush the front part of your hair forward so it is hanging in your face. Place the halo on top of your head and start wrapping your hair around the bandana or t-shirt in small sections.
  3. Once you reach the end of the section you are wrapping you should secure the end with a bobby pin. Once you have wrapped all of your hair in sections around the halo, sleep on it! Since it is on top of your head it won’t interfere with your sleep.
  4. In the morning take out all of the bobby pins and run your fingers through your hair. You will have loose wavy curls that are to die for!

I love no heat curls because it takes less than 10 minutes to prep your hair and it curls while you sleep! Easy peasy!

How to Keep White Shoes Squeaky Clean

White shoes look awesome the first week you have them, then it is downhill from there. They only stay white for a short time, and then they turn a queasy shade of brown that is extremely unappealing. I have a pair of white Keds that are my everyday go-to shoes, and they get dirty so quickly! Luckily there is an easy way to get your favorite white converse or canvas shoes squeaky clean!

  1. Take the laces out” This will make it easier to clean them! You can clean the laces by by letting them soak in a bucket of warm, soapy water.8e9c5af696880cca661a7e42e7df729e
  2. Rinse them: Rinse your shoes in cold water in a sink.
  3. Make a paste: Combine baking soda and vinegar, enough to form a paste, but don’t use a metal bowl or spoon. The paste should be 2 parts baking soda and 3 parts vinegar.
  4. Scrub away: Use a clean toothbrush to scrub the paste into the surface of the shoes. Once you have scrubbed the heck out of your sneakers, rinse them under cold water.
  5. Wash: Put your shoes into the washing machine and wash them on cold. Put them in a laundry bag so they don’t bang around.
  6. Air dry: Let your shoes sit outside in the sun and dry. The sun will help bleach them! DON’T put them in the dryer, it will make them lose their shape!

I have a pair of white Keds and white Converse that are calling my name! I can’t wait to return them to their pearly white glory!

How many of you have a Clarisonic or a similar type of facial cleansing brush? I have one and I looove it. I love how clean my face feels after I use it! On the other hand, you know all of that dirty stuff that the brush scrubs off? It goes into the brush, so that means it needs to be cleaned out or else you are just rubbing dirt all around your face! Here is how to clean your brush to keep your face nice and healthy. 
You need: 
 
– Baby shampoopro
-a small container
– 1/4 cup of water
-1/4 cup of hydrogen peroxide
 
Use a dime size amount of baby shampoo to clean your brush and use circular motions to rub it against the palm of your hand. Rinse well with water. Next, pour 1/4 cup of water and 1/4 cup of peroxide into a glass. Stir it well abd place your brush head into the glass and let it soak there for about 15-30 minutes. Don’t leave it in the solution too long or it will ruin the bristles!

Today I am going to walk you through one of my favorite fashion trend DIYs. The fashion trend is boot socks! These are the socks that stick out of the top of your boots. They are super stylish and help keep your legs warm! Today I am going to show you how to make some of your very own! Here is an example of what they look like when they are finished:

chelsea crockett boot socks

The first step to making these boot socks is to go through your dad’s sock drawer and find a pair he does not want anymore. Pick a neutral color that you know you can wear with a lot of things.

Here is the pair I chose:

Next: You have to cut the toes off! You can choose to cut anywhere on the sock you want. If you prefer your socks to be bunchy, then don’t cut off very much. If you want your socks to be

barely visible or not be shown as much, then just cut right above the heel of the sock.

After that: You are done! That was totally easy, right? I love this trend because it adds detail to your outfit and spices up your boots a bit too! They even keep your legs nice and toasty. Bonus! Here are some pictures of what your socks should look like and an example on how to wear them! Enjoy!

Teasing your hair can be a daunting task. Knowing how to tease your hair and the steps to take when teasing it can be crucial if you ever want full hair with lots of body! Here are 4 tips to teasing your hair:

1. Start off on the right foot: get a good teasing brush! I recommend a brush with boar bristles. When washing your hair in the shower, do not use conditioner. The silicone in conditioner prevents the hair from locking in texture!

2. Do the prep work: When your hair is damp, spray the roots with a sea salt spray. Then add in your favorite mousse and blow dry your hair! When your hair is dry, spray dry shampoo to the roots.chelsea crockett teased hair

3. The manual labor: Once your hair is totally dry and you have sprayed the dry shampoo on your roots, take a section of hair about a half inch wide. Hold your hair tightly and straight back, away from your head. Then tease the section! Use the pointed end of the handle of the brush to shape your hair after you have teased it.

4. Make it last: When you spray your hair with hairspray, make sure the spray is not water based, because that will make your freshly teased ‘do all frizzy! Hold the hairspray the length of the can away from your hair and spray in the direction you want your hair to lay. Finish the look off with shine spray!

I LOVE BB creams, and I was SO excited to find this DIY on how to make it myself! It is cheaper and you can customize it to your skin type.  Since I have oily skin, I make it so that it would be long lasting and fight shine. Here is what you will need:

–          Your favorite sunscreen- Sunscreen that is sweat and water resistant is best. Try to find something that isn’t too greasy so it doesn’t clog your pores. Plus, your BB cream will stay on forever if you use a water resistant sunscreen!

 chelsea crockett sunblock

–          Your fav moisturizer- if you have dry skin, use a creamy moisturizer. If you have oily skin, try an oil free one.

Chelsea Crockett moisturizer

–          Your desired foundation- Liquid/cream foundation is best for this DIY. It mixes best with the other ingredients. Pick a shade that matches your skin tone!

Chelsea crockett liquid foundation

–           Chafing gel- Crazy, right? It is the main ingredient in several makeup primers, and it makes your BB cream go on smooth and stay nice and matte. Just a word of warning, this gel causes breakouts in some ladies. If your skin is prone to breakouts, don’t put as much in or just leave it out. It has not caused me any issues, but I can’t promise it will be the same for you.

Hey lovelies!  Whitening your teeth can be super expensive and somewhat bad for your teeth, but I’m sure there are a few tips you haven’t come across.  Although teeth whitening has its benefits, it comes along with dangers as well.  It can cause your teeth to become more sensitive as well as your gums.  There are a few whitening tips that will do the job without the costly prices and dangers.

A free way to help your teeth keep their color is to avoid certain foods and drinks.  Drinks such as coffee,Chelsea Crockett - White Teeth soda, and tea are just a few beverages that stain your teeth.  Berries, soy sauce, popsicles, and candy are foods that also have an effect on the brightness of your teeth.

            My favorite and most used trick to brighten up my smile is baking soda.  If you take a little cup and mix a ½ teaspoon of baking soda and a ½ teaspoon of water then you end up with your own whitening paste!  After that, just brush!  I recommend doing this only once or twice a week so you don’t end up with damaged gums.

              Crest® 3D whitestrips are a great product to buy if you want your teeth whitened well and quick.  If you’re interested, find them here: http://tiny.cc/Crest3DWhitestrips.  Although they’re a little more expensive, you’ll be sure to have fantastic results and bright, pearly whites!

For those of you that don’t know, honey is a cheap and excellent start for a recipe for healthy skin.  You may think of it as only an ingredient, but now you can put it to other uses!

Besides its great taste, honey has a wide variety of vitamins and minerals that soothes and hydrates your skin.  Along with moisturizing, honey also helps remove acne and other skin blemishesChelsea Crockett - Honey.  Putting it into action can be done easily at home.  Homemade recipes such as honey masks, lotions, and even hair products are easy to make and results are easy to get.  If you plan on whipping up your own creation, make sure you use raw, natural honey.  This will promote new tissue growth and help exfoliate your skin.  After washing off your honey, a small amount of it still remains in your pores, attracting moisture from the air and leaving your skin hydrated and fresh.  One neat thing about honey is you don’t need to mix it with anything!  Using a teaspoon of raw, natural honey and spreading it on your face will do the job.  Leave it on for as little as 10 minutes or as much as an hour.  After that, just rinse it off with warm water.  It should come off real easily and allow you to have beautiful, glowing skin.

Many natural substances can benefit your body and can be found in items you never would’ve guessed!  Honey is the new “buzz” for flawless and fresh skin!

Who doesn’t love soft lips?  I know I do!  Soft, smooth lips make wearing lipstick look better and give your face an all-around better look.  I mean, cracked lips aren’t exactly attractive?!  Many lip balms and other lip products moisturize your lips for a short period of time, but do not remove the dead skin.  This dead skin is what gives your look that cracked appearance…gross.  I will show you how to make a once a week DIY lips scrub with 3 simple ingredients.  It’s SO simple!

Chelsea Crockett- DIY Lip Scrub LipsAll you need for the lip scrub is sugar, 1 tsp. of honey, and ½ tsp. of olive oil.  Mix the olive oil and honey together in a small bowl and then add as much sugar as you please.  Go for a good consistency.  You don’t want to cover up the honey and olive oil with too much sugar.  I like to use about 2 tbsp.  Once all the ingredients are mixed up, apply a small amount to your lips, and rub them together for about a minute.  Remove the mixture with a wet paper towel and there you have it! Soft, luscious lips!

Love,

Chels
