With summer in full swing, we can all expect a new wave of trends coming in!  Whether those be shoe trends, shirt trends, makeup trends, etc., you’ll have to get up-to-date with what trends will be “in” this season.  Here are a few makeup trends to look out for in summer 2017 so you can have the trendiest look in town!

  • Sunset eyes.  Soft reds, oranges, and yellows make for the perfect sunset eyeshadow look! Chelsea Crockett - Sunset Eyeshadow There are tons of different tutorials and ways to achieve this look.  You can go above and beyond or do a simple blended look!
  • Clean/no makeup look.  You can never go wrong with the natural look, especially this summer!  Light blush, thin eyeliner, nude lips, etc. are all something to try out this season.
  • Blue.  Too much blue can sometimes be too over-the-top, but it’s “in” this summer.  Light blue eyeshadow or even blue lips can make your makeup pop!
  • Soft colors/pastels.  I’ve always been a fan of pastels, and this summer they’re going to be super popular.  This could include pastel cheeks, lips, eyes, anything!
  • White accents.  White accented eyes are the perfect way to make your eyes pop.  Adding lighter shades around the inner corners of your eyes and your waterline will make your eyes appear bigger and brighter.

Which trendy makeup look are you going to try out this summer?  Let me know in the comment section below!  I’m hoping to try them all out myself! 🙂

I was recently in Florida and noticed a fun spring fashion trend that I and am loving – ruffles! As it warms up in Illinois where I live, I have a feeling I will see this trend start popping up here at home. My favorite thing about this trend is the whimsical and fun flare. Here are a few of my favorite ruffle tops this season

  1. Cut out sleeves: This shirt is completely unique! I love the way it has the off-the-shoulder ruffles along with the tank top style sleeves. This would look so cute half-tucked into some white skinny jeans!
  2. Bell sleeves and beyond: This shirt has it all, from babydoll style ruffles on the bottom to frilly sleeves and a lace-up back. There is so much going on, and so much to love! I feel like this is a great fun and flowey top for girls days or date nights.
  3. Off-the-shoulder: This top takes off-the-shoulder to a whole new level because it has 2 layers of ruffles! It would look great half tucked into some skinny jeans or even paired with a fun summer skirt.

If you are looking to add some feminine, fun, flirty flare to your wardrobe this spring, I think these shirts are a great place to start!

XOXO, Chels

Make the Most of Your Abandoned Eyeshadow

We all have a favorite eyeshadow shade. You know, that one that always seems to run out, while all the other colors in the palette are only slightly used. I got tired of having all sorts of eyeshadow palettes sitting around that were only slightly used, because all I was using was shades I knew and trusted! If you want to know how to wear the un-used, possibly obscure colors in your palettes, read on!

  1. Pink: Pink may seem like an awkward color for eyeshadow, and may give you “Barbie” vibes, but don’t let that stop you from using it! Gently dust some onto your eyelids, especially if it is a shimmery, light color! Bring the color across your lid down to the corner of the eye, and subdue it with other shadow shades like nude and champagne to tone it down.how-to-use-the-abandoned-colors-in-your-go-to-eye-shadow-palette-1656478-1455328442.640x0c
  2. Blue: This is a color that makes a stunning smoky eye, actually. Especially if it is slightly metallic! If a smoky eye isn’t your thing, use a small brush to run a thin line of shadow along your lower lash line for a pop of color.
  3. Purple: If you are unsure on how to wear that purple eyeshadow in your drawer, try the technique that I mentioned above in blue. Line your bottom lash line with the purple for a subtle color pop. You can even make a cat eye look with it!
  4. Black: Black can be an intimidating shade. Too much and you can start to look moody and dark! For a subtle look, use a fluffy powder shadow brush to dust a V shape along the outer corner of your eyes and halfway to the eye bone. This creates great definition.

Don’t let those abandoned eyeshadow colors go to waste! Get creative with them! You may find a new favorite shade in the process.

XOXO, Chels

            Do you ever get sick of your hair color?  I know I do!  Of course I’ll never do anything dramatic like dye my hair blonde, but adding a hint of color is a great way to spice up your look.  Some colors are more daring than others, but in the end a slight change in color is all you need!

            If you’re sick of your blonde hair, there are two really great options to change up your blonde hair color.  If you want to go lighter, try icy blonde highlights.  The highlights will add to your natural color without making your hair look too blonde, or worse…white!  If you’re looking to go darker without going brunette, adding honey highlights will do the trick!  You could even try going strawberry blonde for a more daring look.

Brunettes have a lot of options when it comes to changing up their hair color.  Adding dark or light brown highlights is an easy transition to a different shade of brown.  If you’re looking for a more daring color, try adding dark red or plum undertones to your hair.  The change won’t be too dramatic, but the colors will really stand out in the light! Chelsea Crockett- red hair When it comes to black hair, there isn’t much that can be changed; but if you want to try something really different try adding blue undertones to your hair.  This will make your black hair appear softer, but have an edge to it.

I do not recommend dying your hair on your own.  Go to a trusted salon for any of your hair color desires and talk to your parents first!

XOXO,

Chelsea

If you live in or have ever visited the east coast, then you know what the nautical look is!  Cape Cod, famous for its nautical atmosphere, is buzzing with this style!  Sailor shorts, stripes, anchors, and colors of the sea are all part of the look!  Even if you don’t live in that part of the country, that’s okay!  Check out how you can bring the nautical style to your closet!Chelsea Crockett- nautical looks

The stripe is the first and foremost most important part of going nautical.  Whether it’s a striped dress, shirt, or shorts, this pattern must be incorporated into your outfit.  One of my favorite ways to wear stripes is to pair a navy striped shirt with white or red shorts.  These colors scream nautical and it’s the simplest way to obtain the look!  If you want to try something bolder, grab a pair of sailor shorts and pair it with an open button up or striped tee.  Looking effortless is what it’s all about!

An open scarf and fedora hat are also key pieces.  Try a pair of white skinny jeans paired with a red, navy, or yellow top.  Complete the look by throwing on a fedora and a scarf draped around your neck.  Keep the colors neutral or, once again, try stripes.

The nautical look, with a few key pieces, is easy to obtain!  Shock all of your friends this summer with an effortless, nautical ensemble!

Love,

Chelsea

           A beautiful, bold, or subtle color is an obvious part of any wardrobe.  Whether you’re wearing a hot pink dress, black blazer, or jean shorts and a neutral tee, the colors you wear say a lot about your personality.  Next time you take a look at your outfit or closet, check out which color you own the most of!

  • Black: If you find yourself wearing a lot of black, you’re probably a strong, powerful woman.  Black is a fierce color, which is perfect for a job interview or a presentation day at school!
  • Brown:  This is a very down-to-earth color, which exerts a chill mood.  Try wearing brown for a casual day to the park or a day lying around the house.
  • Purple/Blue/Green:  Deep bold colors like royal blue, emerald green, and purple show intelligence and creativity.  Incorporating these colors in an outfit show a fun side to any personality through a pop of color. 
  • Yellow/Pink:  Those who wear yellow and pink have a fun side to them!  Yellow and pink are bright, bubbly colors which are perfect for anyone who is upbeat.  Try wearing these colors more during this spring season.
  • Red:  This is one of the most ambitious colors out there.  Red shows power and energy.  Most people who wear red are goal-oriented, courageous, Chelsea Crockett- red dressand aren’t afraid to stand out!  You can’t be shy if you’re wearing red!

Colors are so powerful and tell a lot about a person!  If you’re bored of your wardrobe, try adding color and flaunt it!

Hello lovelies!

 Memorial Day is fast approaching! Today I am going to give you some suggestions on how to look your best on this special day! Whether you are hanging out with friends, throwing a party, or just chilling with your family, I am here to make sure you are looking fab this Memorial Day.

       I don’t know if you all know this, but I am really loving the high-waisted shorts trend. They are so adorable and give you a retro look. Search for a pair here:http://tiny.cc/HighWaistedShorts!  You can pair a white or red shirt with a pair of high-waisted shorts for a casual look on Memorial Day. You could also rock an American Flag printed pair like the ones shown in the picture below. Love em! Throw on a pair of white or red sneakers or strappy sandals to complete the look. This outfit is perfect if you plan on hanging out with your friends and keeping things low key. 

Another outfit idea is to sport a sweet sundress. Sundresses are ideal when it comes to staying cool while enduring hot weather because they are so loose and flowy. If you are attending a barbecue or an outdoor event, this is your best choice. Not only are sundresses classic and adorable, they are also super comfy. I suggest wearing a sundress that is either white or is accented in patriotic colors for this occasion. Throw on a pair of classy wedge sandals and the outfit is complete! Need help picking out a dress? Check out my example below!

And finally, accessories! A sure way to spruce up any outfit is to add nail color. Paint your nails red or stripe them with white and blue! Another way to add a patriotic splash to your ensemble is to pucker up and apply bright red lipstick. Red lipstick adds character to any outfit!

Memorial Day is about honoring those who have given their lives for our country. On this day we thank the men and women who have sacrificed so much for the freedom and safety of this country. Have a blast this Memorial Day!

Love, Chels
