I always get nervous when I straighten/curl my hair. I hate damaging it! I go through so much heat protectant because of my long thing hair. In order to keep your hair growing long and strong, you need to protect it from damage. The main thing that heat protectant does is moisturize your hair, so why not do it naturally? Here is how:Olive-oil

I did my research and found that coconut oil can actually work as a heat protectant! It is inexpensive, smells wonderful, and works! I usually put it on my hair when it is wet and then use a brush to evenly distribute it. Only use a little bit because it can make your hair a wee bit greasy if you use too much. It makes my hair so so so silky smooth! Also, after I use coconut oil as heat protectant on my hair and then straighten it, it stays straight ALL day! You can use other oils on your hair that work just as well as coconut oil in the “protectant” area! These oils are argan oil, shea butter, olive oil, and grape seed oil.

Using oils on your hair helps your hair replenish its natural oils, which is super healthy for your hair! Try these techniques and comment below and tell me how it goes!

I am enjoying healthy, moisturized hair, and you can too!

Sugar scrubs are natural exfolaints! They can greatly improve the health of your skin by getting rid of toxins and impurities and gives you a healthy glow! Regular soap may appear to keep your skin clean, but only exfoliation removes dead skin cells and excess oil!

Here is how to make your very own lemon honey sugar scrub!lemonhoney

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp honey

Add all of these ingredients together and keep them in a jar in your bathroom so that you have easy access to it! I use my sugar scrub when I am in the shower and I have deep conditioner sitting in my hair. I have the water off and use the scrub on my face and all over my body! It rejuvenates my skin and gets all of the dead skin off. Then, I rinse it off in the shower! Easy peasy!

Comment below and let me know how this sugar scrub works for you!

“Do you want to build a snowman”? If you are familiar with this phrase then you have seen the movie “Frozen”! I absolutely adore this movie, and I am even more obsessed with the hair and makeup that the characters wear in this movie! Queen Elsa has the most beautiful braid in her hair throughout the movie. I knew I just HAD to learn how to do this gorgeous hair style. Read on to learn how!

chelsea crockett elsa

This style requires a LOT of teasing! Before you start this hair style, loosely curl your hair so it has some body to it. Also, spray some dry shampoo throughout your tresses to give it texture. Tease all of your hair at the crown of your hair and even a little throughout the ends of your hair. Spray it lightly with hair spray. Take three large sections from the top of your head and start a French braid down the back. Once you get to about the nape of your neck, start to braid more to the side of your head so that it can hang over the front of your shoulder. Once you have finished the braid, tie it off with a clear elastic. Pull on the braid and stretch it to loosen it to make it look fuller and bigger. Also, pull some strands from the top of the braid and loosely curl them to make the style look whispy and romantic!

Go show off your new look! It is fit for a queen!

XOXO, Chels

Never underestimate the power of blush. It can give you a sweet bashful look, or a “touched by

the sun” look, or just a cheery look! Blush gives me a little bounce in my step. A little blush goes

a long way, so it is important to find the right shade for your skin tone! You don’t want to use the

wrong shade or too much product so that you dangle closely in the “clown” zone! Here is a guide

to help you find the right look for you!

1. Fair skin: Fair skinned lassies should not get carried away with their blush! A soft pink,blush

light coral, or soft pink will be the perfect enhancer for your porcelain skin. The key is

light application.

2. Medium Skin Tone: You ladies are similar to your fair skinned friends! Pinks and

peaches are your bff’s. They will give you the dramatic edge you want! Just a quick tip,

stay away from shades that have a blue-ish undertone. It can make your cheeks look

almost slightly bruised!

3. Dark Skin Tone: For you beauties deep shades of red, orange, and brown are best. These

colors will leave you looking radiant!

Blush can give you a bounce in your step and a brighter smile. Why? Because it makes you

look like a million bucks!

Odds are, some of you are super athletic. I envy you! Exercise is so good for you, and it keeps you in shape! It’s tough to know what kind or how much makeup to wear when you are being athletic. That’s where I come in! Here are some tips on how to look your best while playing your hardest.

When you are at practice or working out, the best tip I can give you is to keep your makeup light. Sweat will melt off any foundation or cover-up you are wearing. Let your skin breathe! If you feel like you have to wear some form of cover-up, opt for a dab of concealer for under your eyes or over girl_running_on_beachany obnoxious blemishes you may have. Also, instead of using foundation you can use a BB cream! They are super light and give you just the right amount of coverage. Also, choose waterproof mascara. This will protect it from running and smudging all over the place. Try and minimize the use of eyeliner, also. It will just melt right off when you start sweating.

Now go out there and kick some butt, my ambitious athletic Insiders! (And look fab while you’re at it!)

XOXO, Chels

Believe it or not, homecoming is just around the corner! You’ve got a lot of preparation to get to! There are so many things to think about: the dress, the group your going with, your DATE, where your going to take pictures…the last thing you want to be worrying about is your hair! I am here to help you pick out your perfect homecoming hair style, because you’ve got enough to worry about as it is!

  1. Heart shaped face: Ladies with this face shape have a broad forehead and then their face starts to taper from the cheeks photo (7)and jaw line down to the chin. I have this face shape! Since the lower part of the face is narrower compared to the upper portion, you want to draw attention to the lower part of the face. The best hair-do to help you achieve this goal is the half-up half-down look. Curl all of your hair and then pull the upper part towards the crown back while the rest falls gently around your shoulders.
  2. Round face: For my round faced babes, your goal should be to take attention away from the cheeks and ears. This will make your face not look wider than it really is! One way to do this is to draw attention up and elongate your face. A hair style that helps you do this is an intricate bun or sleek high pony tail. Never under estimate the impact of a strategically placed pony tail.
  3. Narrow or oval face: You lucky ducks have it made. The shape of your face is ideal because the proportions are just right. Truth is, you can do just about anything to your hair. The updoo that will highlight your beautifully shaped face is to pull all of your hair back into a bun. You can leave some loose wispy hairs down to give you a more wistful look if you prefer.

I hope this helps you choose which homecoming hair style is right for you! I am sure you will look gorgeous no matter what style you choose.

XOXO, Chels

I have a pair of black suede wedges that I absolutely adore. The only problem with them? They are a half size too big! When I walk in them my feet slide out and I look like I am walking on a waterbed I am so unsteady! I was so upset when I realized that they were too big, so I did some research! Here is how to make shoes that are too big fit just right!

 

The first thing you need to do is fill the space where your foot should be. For me, the heal is where I struggle. My gosh darn feet won’t stay in my darn shoes! Fill the gap between your heel and the shoe with Dr. Scholl’s Rub Relief Strips, which come on a roll like Scotch tape but have a thick, cushiony feel. You can find these at any drug store! Another way is to wear cushions on the shoes where the balls of your feet should be. These will jack you up a bit chelsea crockettand keep your feet cozy for long wear! If you are wearing shoes that will be covered by pants, then just throw on an extra pair of socks…or two..:) Sometimes, if you are wearing a dark pair of tights, you can get away with wearing a dark pair of ankle socks under your tights.  A cheap way to make your shoes fit, shove a few cotton balls in the toes of your shoes!

 

Hopefully these tips help you slip into your favorite pair of too-big shoes!

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

Matte polish is so chic. Add matte top coat to any color and it instantly becomes 10x edgier. There are some really cool, really unique ways to wear matte polish! Want to rock this trend and show your edgier side? Stick around!

Matte French Manicure: This is a totally new spin on the traditional French Manicure. I love this look with black 2f22f3f6c29b4a30b5432b4912e411f4polish, but you can really do it with any polish of your choice. Just paint your nails whatever shade you prefer (I am going to use black for my example) and let the polish dry for a good long time. Once the polish is thoroughly dry, place a small piece of masking tape over the tip of your nail to cover it up. Then, paint matte polish over the rest of the nail. The covered portion will remain shiny while the rest will be matte, which creates the “French Manicure” look.

The “Accent” Nail: Paint all of your nails but one. Leave one nail as an “accent” nail. Paint all of your fingers but the accent nail in one shade, and then paint the matte polish over them. Paint your accent nail in a different color or paint it in glitter polish, and then cover it with regular shiny top coat. This look is unique and totally adorable! Great for making a statement.

Diagonal Polish: Paint all your nails in the color of your choice and let them dry thoroughly. After they are totally dry, cover each nail diagonally with a piece of tape. This process is similar to the matte French tip, but the style of nail is different. Once your tape is diagonally placed over half the nail, paint the other half matte. This is another edgy, unique way to rock matte nails!

Never knew there could be so many great ways to wear matte nails, didja?!

Blackheads are the worst. They are persistent little buggers, because no matter how much we poke pinch and squeeze at them, they never seem to disappear. As it turns out, there are a few things that you may not know about these little devils that could help you treat them and prevent them from showing their ugly little faces:

  1. What blackheads actually are: Blackheads are open comedomes that are really just widened hair follicles that are filled with bacteria, skin debris, and sebum oil. Ew.34772427
  2. What is causing them?: Blackheads are generally caused by the overproduction of oil, so all of my oily skinned Insider should gear towards oil-free makeup and lotions to be on the safe side.
  3. What is a DIY blackhead treatment? There are plenty of cheap blackhead busting DIYs out there, and I have written about a few! Here is a quick one: mix some baking soda with apple cider vinegar to create a paste and gently scrub the blackheads away.
  4. Don’t wash your face too much: Sounds a little weird, right? Washing your face is great, but try not to go overboard. Cleanse your face once or twice a week, but no more than that because your face can dry out and become irritated.

So, did you learn any more about those pesky black heads? Hopefully you can use this info to help prevent and treat your blackheads!

White Eyeliner: Why You Need It!

Have you ever used white eyeliner? It can give you an instant eyelift! Most people think that white eyeliner is only used on the runway, but that isn’t the case anymore! Here are 3 every day uses for white liner:

 

1. To give yourself a brow lift: Glide the liner under your brow. Use a smudger or a clean bush to blend it downwards. This creates a visual eye-lift and defines your brow.

2. To open up your eyes: Glide the liner along the top lash line and smudge it out over the eyelid. This makes the eye look larger and the lashes lookwhite eyeliner longer and more dramatic! Work it!

3. If you’re feeling a bit drowsy: Glide the liner along the inner rim of your lower lash line to cancel out any redness. This reflects white into the eyes which creates a well-rested, fresh look.

 

Alphonse Wiebelt quoted “White eyeliner is an absolutely essential tool that every makeup artist has in their kit.” Do YOU have white liner in your collection? I suggest you add it to your Christmas list!

I love sheer blouses. They are loose, flowy, and flirty! A lot of times, though, I am kind of reluctant to don a sheer blouse because I don’t know what to wear under it! I want to be modest in the way that I dress, and sometimes it is hard to know how to achieve this goal when wearing sheer clothing. Here are 3 tips for when you wear sheer clothing.

  1. Layer it: Of course, when you are wearing sheer shirts you want to layer them. Sheer shirts with nothing under tumblr_m8xzv8VJIr1rbicmeo1_400them leave little to the imagination, which is not our goal! Try pairing your sheer shirt with a stylish tank or crop top. Or you can even layer your favorite simple cami!
  2. Keep it loose: Sheer blouses are best worn loose. The tighter the sheer shirt, the more revealing it is. Your sheer look should be relaxed and floaty, so keep your sheer shirt chic by wearing it in a looser fitting style.
  3. Button it up: Look chic when you wear your sheer blouse by buttoning it up all the way. When you wear your sheer shirts in this modest manner, you balance out the sheer nature of the shirt. Tuck your sheer top into a pencil skirt or toss on a blazer for a more professional look.

Now you can rock sheer shirts without a problem!

Hi Insiders,

I’m sure you’ve seen your dad light up a grill using charcoal for a yummy dinner.  Even though it’s great for grilling steaks, did you know it can actually help get rid of oily skin?  Sounds crazy, right?!  Beauty experts have found that charcoal has been proven to be able to suck dirt, oil, and acne causing bacteria right out of your skin.  It’s a skin clearing secret weapon.  It’s a fast and effective way to get the skin you’ve always wanted.

One of my favorite products of all time is the Michael Todd Charcoal Detox Cleanser.  It really gets in my pores and gets all the dirt out.  Since I have really oily skin, it’s the perfect product for me!  It’s really cleared up my acne.  Another great product is the LUSH “Dark Angels” Fresh Facial Cleanser.  LUSH is made with all organic products and is so fresh and natural.  The “Dark Angel” cleanser is a powdered charcoal mix that when mixed with water creates an all-natural charcoal treatment. Chelsea Crockett- Michael Todd Charcoal

Don’t be afraid to branch out of your normal facial routine and try a charcoal based product.  Your skin will be brighter and cleaner in no time.  I promise, you won’t be disappointed.

XOXO,

Chelsea

We all know what ombre hair is, but have you ever heard of Balayge? They are very similar, but also have some key differences. Want to know which style is right for you? Need to know the deets? Stay tuned!

Balayge: This word literally means “to sweep” in French. This style is defined by sweeping highlights that create anatural, sun kissed look. The highlights are focused on the front of your hair, and gradually sweep to the back. This look is more natural looking than ombre, so if that is your cup of tea then go for it!c6fba2c81ad04adf483f3c33d282a020

Ombre: Ombre is a gradual lightening of the hair, fading from dark near the roots to lighter at the ends. Ombre can be both striking or subtle, it just depends on your preference and the stylist! Just a word of warning, ombre can be a bit rough on your hair because it concentrates the bleach on the ends of your hair, which are already the most damaged part of your hair. If you decide on this style, deep condition your hair regularly!

Have you decided which style is more “you”? If so, comment below!

XOXO, Chels
