Have you ever wondered how celebs take flawless photos over and over again? The secret lies in the makeup. The way in which you apply your makeup can change the way you look in pictures due to the lighting, flashes, etc. Check out a few of my favorite makeup tips for getting camera ready!Chelsea Crockett- photo ready makeup

  1. Make semi-matte makeup your new best friend. It will cover up any, if not all, blemishes, without giving you that “fake look” like complete matte makeup can. It won’t make your skin look shiny, but it won’t make it look flat either.
  2. Contouring is the best way to capture all of your features in the lens. It’s important to brighten and bronze in the correct places. Bronzer will keep you from looking washed out due to a camera flash.
  3. When it comes to eye makeup, it’s important to choose one or the other: a blended look or a sharp look. If you’re going for a more natural, blended look, be sure to blend in all of the eyeshadow colors and smudge your eye liner. If you want a sharp look, go for a bold, one color and straight eye liner line.
  4. Filling in your brows can be tricky. It’s hard not to make them look overly filled in. To avoid this problem, try using an eye shadow that is one shade light than your hair color. Lightly fill in your brows with a brush. This will keep them from looking harsh on camera.

If this doesn’t make you want to go take the perfect selfie, then I don’t know what does!

It’s easy to throw on makeup and run out the door. We’ve all done it; but have you ever looked in the mirror afterwards and seen the damage you did?! I know I’m guilty! There are so many little details we don’t think about when putting on eye make, but they’re VERY important. Keep on reading to find out the most common eye makeup mistakes, so you can stop doing them today!

Before you begin your makeup process, priming your eye lid is SO important! Throughout the day, our shadow can start to bunch up in the creases of our eye lids. By priming your eyelid, your shadow will stay in place! Once that step is complete, it’s time to pick your shadow color. Less is more, people!!! During the day, stick to nude colors. Too many people over do their daytime eye makeup, which can look very off. Also, make sure to blend! You don’t want it to look like you put a line of color on your eye. Incorporate a little blending of the eye shadow with your upper eyeliner as well. When it comes to your water line, only apply liner to the outer corners. By putting a harsh line under your entire eye, you’re creating the illusion that your eye is smaller. No one wants that! Last, but not least, highlight! While this step might seem small, it plays a very big role! Dusting a beige or champagne highlighter in the inner corner of your eyes brightens your entire look, ties everything in, and makes your eyes whiter and bigger.

Next time you’re applying makeup, think about some of these mistakes! Are you committing a makeup crime?!
