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!).

Thrifting is the perfect pastime.  It’s cheap, fun, and can bring out your creative side if you let it!  Many of your favorite looks can be recreated if you simply go to a thrift store with an open mind and a little creativity!  Here are 5 steps to master the art of thrifting. 🙂

  1. Be openminded. Chelsea Crockett - DIY High Waisted Shorts You will come across many interesting outfits, shirts, shoes, etc. (to say the least).  Maybe try on a few things that you think you’d never ever wear.  It may turn out to be your new favorite shirt!
  2. Be creative.  Think about how you can take one piece of clothing and turn it into a completely new creation.  There are so many DIY looks that you can create right in your room!  (If you don’t have a creative bone in your body, Pinterest is the perfect place to find some inspiration!)
  3. Think retro.  One of my favorite looks is DIY high waisted shorts.  Take a fun pair of mom jeans and cut them to the perfect length.  Roll the ends to create the perfect 70’s look like the picture on the right!  My friends and I have all done this and they’re so comfy!
  4. Go with friends.  Everything is more fun when you’re with your girls right?  Grab some of your friends and make a day out of it.  A second opinion always helps when shopping!
  5. Don’t go with a game plan.  If you go with a specific piece of clothing in mind, you might pass by tons of other things that may end up creating the perfect look!

What’s your go-to shop to go thrifting at?  Let me know below!

This summer has already been filled with new trends, styles, and fashion statements.  The cool thing about fashion is that there will always be new trends coming into play along with old trends circling back around!  There are many popular swimsuit styles of the summer but here are three that are the most stylish!

  • Peplum Swimsuits. Chelsea Crockett - Peplum Swimsuits Remember when peplum tops were the hottest trend of the year?  They’re making a comeback but in swimsuits instead!  They’re the cutest tops to pair with some patterned high-waisted bottoms.  Look at the picture on the right for example.  You can mix and match swimsuits for the perfect look!
  • Wrap Swimsuits.  Wrap swimsuits can come in many different styles and colors.  If you’ve never seen these, most have strings or straps that wrap around your stomach or just below your chest.  They might not be the best if you want to avoid tan lines, but they’re super cute and stylish!
  • Off-the-Shoulder Swimsuits.  It seems like all the best shirt styles are making their way into the swimsuit world!  You can find off-the-shoulder swimsuits in both one and two pieces.  If you prefer a two piece, mix and match different colors and patterns to find the perfect look!

Which style is your favorite?  Comment and let me know below! 🙂

What to Wear to an Outdoor Concert

Summertime is the best time, filled with sun, friends, and lots of outdoor concerts to attend!  If you’ve ever been to an outdoor concert, then you know just how fun they can be.  There are several guidelines you should follow when picking out your outfit, considering how hot and stuffy outdoor concerts usually are!  Here’s a little help. 🙂

Chelsea Crockett - Concert OutfitUnlike music festivals, you won’t have a long day filled with tons of different concerts and events.  In this case, you don’t have to consider the heat and sun as much as you would at a day-long festival.  Usually outdoor amphitheater concerts are at night, so you shouldn’t be too hot and sweaty!  First, you’ll need to consider the main look you’re going for.  I suggest a cute romper or high waisted shorts and a nice shirt/tank.  The picture on the left is a perfect example!  A jean skirt, with an off-the-shoulder shirt and double braids is so cute!Chelsea Crockett - Concert Outfit

Although you won’t go as “all out” as you would for a full music festival, you can still accessorize just as much.  Depending on the weather, you might even have to bring along a jacket for when the sun goes down!  The picture on the right is a super cute look too if you want to be a little more casual.

What are you wearing next time you go to an outdoor concert?  Let me know below, I may copy your look for this summer! 🙂

Whether it’s your first prom or your third, it never gets any less exciting!  I know I’m not the only one who loves shopping for the perfect prom dress.  Figuring out the right style, color, and all around look that I’m searching for can be tough, but once I find the right one, it’s worth it!  If you need a place to start, here are some pointers on which color dress would look best on you!

Chelsea Crockett - Prom DressIf you have dark skin, any pastel or bright shade will most likely look good!  Try colors on the warmer end of the spectrum such as pinks, yellows, purples, etc.  These will bring out the warmness in your skin tone and highlight your skin’s glow. 

If you have tan/olive skin, focus on complimenting your undertones.  Olive skinned girls are lucky because almost any color will look good!  I suggest a deep green or red, maybe even a burgundy shade like the dress on the left.  Especially if you have dark hair, try one of these colors!  If you want to really highlight your skin tone, try a bright pink that will make you look extra tan!

For the fair skinned ladies out there, pay attention to the undertone of your skin, whether it’s warmer or cooler toned.  If you have naturally rosy cheeks and a warmer skin tone, try earthy shades.  These will look beautiful on you!  If you have cooler undertones, look into purples, pinks, and blues!

I hope this narrows down your search options so finding the perfect prom dress can be a little easier!

New Year’s Eve is the one holiday you can go above and beyond with your makeup.  You can rock as much sparkle and glitter as you want since you’ll be ringing in the new year all night long!  In case you wanted to try something new this holiday, here are 3 makeup looks that are perfect for the night ahead!

Gold – If you want your look to focus more on gold tones, try out a look like the one on the right!  Chelsea Crockett - NYE MakeupDoing a smoky eye with brown shades will create the perfect base to add some gold sparkle.  Fill in your eyebrows and add a maroon lip to seal the deal!

Silver – If your outfit calls for a silver makeup look, focus on black and grey tones.  Since theses shades are darker, I suggest using black only on the outer parts of your lid.  You don’t want to use too many dark shades especially if you normally don’t wear a lot of eyeshadow.  Add a shimmer silver shade over your base.  (You can even add some blue tones to compliment the grey!)

Nude – Maybe you’re not into all of the sparkle and glitter and want to keep it a little simpler.  Pick a couple eye shadows that are more matte rather than shimmer.  You can do a light smoky eye paired with a matte lipstick!  Keep it simple but still complimenting your outfit. 

I hope this completes your look for this New Year’s Eve!

Sooner than later, the leaves will be changing and the temperatures will be dropping.  That being said, some fall wardrobe updating will need to be done!  There are lots of new trends to be aware of this upcoming season.  Different materials, patterns, and looks are going to make their statement in a month or two.  Keep reading to find out how you can be up-to-date!Chelsea Crockett - Long Line Vest

  1. Instead of puffy or fleece vests, try rocking a long-line vest like the one on the right!  They’re much more stylish and can be dressed up or dressed down!
  2. Although army jackets are super cute, try wearing a bomber jacket instead.  They have a much more retro feel to them and come in many different colors and patterns!  This is one of my favorite trends going into fall 2016.
  3. I have tons of dresses that I love to wear especially in autumn, but one trend that I’ve been seeing everywhere is suede dresses.  I love the material and the look it gives off!
  4. Instead of layered or chunky necklaces, don’t be afraid to be simple with chokers!  There are so many different kinds.  You can get a tan suede double stranded choker or a thick black stranded one, whatever you want!

Which fall trend will you be rocking this season?  Let me know below! 🙂

Graduation Attire 101

Summer, warm weather, and days in the sun are almost here… But first, graduation! With me being a senior this year, I’m graduating and moving on to bigger and better things. Graduation is a big deal, and I obviously want to look my best for the big day. So, I came up with a little guide on how to style your outfit for graduation day!Chelsea Crockett - Graduation Dress

First comes first, know your colors. Since it’s spring, see which shades look best with your hair color and skin tone. Use those to your advantage! I love floral patterns during the spring. If you do too, you can always find the pattern you like with which colors go best with you! Not only is floral good for spring, but patterns are always fun to play around with! Don’t be too limited when it comes to patterns and materials. Stripes, lace, chevron, etc. may turn out to be your fave trend!

As far as guidelines go, make sure your dress isn’t too short or too low-cut. Although your gown will be covering up the majority of it, people will still see it for pictures and before and after the ceremony. For your shoes, I would suggest a stylish pair of wedges or casual heels. I prefer wedges because they’re more comfortable and easier to walk in (which is a good idea for walking to get your diploma!).

I hope this helped you get an idea of what outfit you’ll wear for your big day!

XOXO – Chelsea

Whether you’re graduating middle school, high school, or college, graduation is right around the corner!  With so many eyes on you and hundreds of pictures being taken, it’s important to have the right outfit.  It’s time to find the perfect graduation look!

Graduation is a very important event, therefore go for a dress.  When shopping for a dress, avoid anything strapless.  Go for a dress with straps and one you will be comfortable in.  Graduation Chelsea Crockett- graduation dressceremonies usually last a long time, so you do not want to constantly be pulling up your dress, especially in front of your principals and family members.  Since the weather will be transitioning from spring to summer, go for a fun colored flowy dress as well!  You don’t want to look too business professional, so opt for a dress right above the knee with a bright color or pattern!

Walking across the stage at graduation can be nerve racking, so don’t wear 6 inch heels.  Instead, go for a wedge.  Wedge heels have more support and are easier to walk in!  If you’re still worried about falling, try finding heels that have an ankle strap.  This will prevent your feet from sliding around in your shoe.

Happy Graduation!

     In this day and age, styles and trends come and go and only stay for a season or two.  This season, a trend that’s in, hot, and popular is boho chic.  If you don’t know what it is, boho chic is a bohemian, Indy type style that’s hot in Hollywood right now.  Celebrities such as the Kardashians, Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, and Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen have been seen wearing this new Chelsea Crockett - Boho Chic Dresstrend.

            The boho chic look can be described as usually loose fitting with tie dyed colors, floral patterns, or solids with crocheted lace.  It is most often worn as a dress but some skirts combined with cute shirts can bring on the look, too! 

            If you’re into this look, you can find related clothing at Urban Outfitters or Free People.  Although these stores are a little more expensive, you can ask for their clothing for your birthday or for other events/holidays for gifts.  You can also find this type of clothing at Forever 21 (of courseWink) for a cheaper price.  I love this style because it’s unique and a fun, new way to dress.  It’s also super comfy!  You guys should totally check it out.  Enjoy!

            Hey girls!

            It’s the holiday we’ve been waiting for all year and it’s finally here!  One of the best things about the Christmas season, are the fun parties and gift-exchanges!  And along with these fun festivities, you’ll be in need of a stylish outfit.Chelsea Crockett - Style for the Season

            Sporting a simple holiday dress is perfect for almost any occasion.  Maroon is a gorgeous color to wear for a dress and also gives off a holiday feel.  On the right, I paired a maroon lace dress from Target with a cream infinity scarf.  Some Chelsea Crockett - Sweatergold flats or cream boots will finish off the outfit.  For a more casual outing, try out a black blazer.  This can be paired with a red infinity scarf or a chunky necklace.  You can also wear a red peplum or some fun patterned pants to spice up your outfit.  Throw on some heels or boots to tie your get-up together. 

            In you want to go even more casual, over-sized cardigans are a huge trend right now!  I rocked this one with a pair of leggings, boots, and an infinity scarf.  You’ll be sure to catch the attention of all the guests at the party!

                                                Merry Christmas! – Chels
