Christmas is creeping up on us faster than we know it… and I’m so excited!  Around Christmas time, my friends and I always do secret Santa gift exchanges.  It can be hard coming up with different things to get each year, so I wanted to tell you about the idea I’ll be using for my upcoming gift exchanges!

For me, I can never have too much makeup.  Who doesn’t love trying out new brands and products?  For your kit, you’ll need at least three different products, depending on how much you want to spend.  Chelsea Crockett - Makeup KitYou’ll at least need a lipstick, some type of skin product, and an eye product.  Since most people already have a certain foundation they like to use, pick out a highlighter, blush, etc.  As for eyes, purchase a mascara or eye shadow to add to their kit.

Now that you know what to put in your DIY makeup kit, here are a few of my favorites that are inexpensive yet good quality!  For a lipstick, try Tarte’s Color Splash Hydrating Lipstick.  There are 24 different shades to choose from!  As for a highlighter, you can buy Urban Decay’s Mini Naked Illuminated Powder for only $12 from Sephora.  Since the other two products are a little pricy, add your favorite drugstore mascara to complete the kit!

Are you going to try out this idea this year?  Let me know what products you fill your kit with! 🙂

XOXO – Chelsea

Spring showers don’t just bring May flowers, they bring, well, rain! I use every rainy day as an excuse to try out my rainy day outfits. Rain coats are no longer just a way to stay dry, they are also a fashion statement! Here are 3 of my favorite rain coat styles.

  1. Feminine: This coat is so cute – it has a fun feminine flare with the flowy back and blush color.
  2. Colorful: I love statement rain coats like this one. The color is so adorable, and it is a classic fashion statement. Very East Coast! This coat takes a simple outfit to the next level.
  3. Iridescent: This coat is the most fun rain coat! It’s iridescent coloring is so unique and is a cool way to rock your own personal style.

Rainy days don’t stand a chance against these adorable jackets!

This spring, peach pastel makeup is making waves! Shades inspired by fruit are going to be majorly popular in early 2017. Peach is trending right now because it is an easy shade to wear and is flattering on everyone! Here are a few of my favorite peach inspired pastel looks this spring.

  1. Eyeshadow: Peach eyeshadow is a sweet and subtle look. The light shades are fresh and playful.
  2. Blush: Peach blush adds a gorgeous glow to your face and adds warmth and friendliness to your skin!
  3. Lips: A peach lip color is a great sweet and sassy look. It is fun and feminine!

One thing to avoid when wearing peach shades is an orangey-peach color. Stay in the pink family. Choosing a more orange tone with red undertones can make your skin look sunburnt and irritated!

Let’s be real. Behind that 1 selfie you posted on Instagram there are 20+ pictures that were rejected and didn’t make the cut. You took selfie after selfie, switched angles and lighting, the works. I’ll be the first person to admit that a good selfie can give a little boost of confidence and spring in your step for the rest of the day. Here are some makeup products that are sure to get you selfie-ready.

  1. Highlighter: Use highlighter in a stick form to accentuate features like your brow and cheek bones and the bridge of your nose.3-Custom-clarifier-pencil-3
  2. Blush: Cream to powder blushes give you a natural glow and the perfect amount of color! They work better than powder blushes and can give your face a quick pick me up by using your fingertips to apply it to the apples of your cheeks.
  3. Eye clarifier: This is a nude/peachy eye pencil that gives you a bright-eyed look. It can also help hide the appearance of tired eyes or redness.
  4. Brow gel or brow pencil: Your eyebrows enhance your features and define them. Use a brow pencil or brow gel to shape those puppies to your liking.

Now say “cheese”, because you are selfie ready!

The list of brilliant beauty hacks I’ve found online is endless. The amount of crazy ideas and tricks with different products and utensils keeps getting bigger and bigger. Recently, I came across an article that had several beauty tricks using a spoon! What??? Since I was curious, I tried some of them out. To my surprise, they’re brilliant!

  • Ever have trouble getting your contour just right? Take a spoon and place it on your cheekbone. Then use your bronzer or contour kit to make the perfect line! (Don’t forget to blend!)
  • One of the most annoying things is applying mascara and getting it on your eyelid. Then you have to figure out how to get it off without messing up your lashes! Place a spoon on your eyelid to avoid this mistake. (This works for your bottom lashes, too!)Chelsea Crockett - Spoon Hack
  • As teenagers, we don’t get as much sleep as we should. I often wake up with bags under my eyes from not getting enough sleep the night before. Keep a spoon in your fridge to get it nice and cold and apply it to your dark circles in the morning. It’ll help reduce the puffiness!
  • If you’ve ever shattered blush, bronzer, or eye shadow, you know how frustrating it can be. Use a spoon to press the product back together! It may not solve all your problems, but it will press it back to its original state (as best as it can!).

Which hack is your go-to? I hope this was helpful!

Did you know you can make your own blush from raspberries?! How great is that! Nature’s own blush. When you make your own blush you can be confident that there are no nasty chemicals in it and you will know for sure that your blush is all natural. Here is how to make your very own raspberry blush!

You will need:

  • 4 teaspoons raspberry powder (made from freeze dried raspberries)Blush_Main
  • 1-2 tsp arrowroot starch

 

  1. Place the freeze dried raspberries into a coffee grinder and process until you have a fine powder. Make sure that all of the seeds are ground up!
  2. In a small bowl, mix the raspberry powder with arrowroot starch. Start off by adding one teaspoon of arrowroot starch and test the shade using a blush brush. If the color of the blush is too bright or intense add more arrowroot starch until you have the desired color.
  3. Honestly, you only need one piece of equipment to make this blush and that is a coffee grinder! If you do not have one, use your food processor.

 

This blush is so good, you could eat it! 😉

XOXO, Chels

Do you use powder or liquid blush? I use both! For a while I didn’t even know that they MADE liquid blush! So, would you like to know a little bit about each to decide which is best for you? Read on!83231_900px_100011

 

  1. Depends on the look you’re going for: Powder blush gives off a more finished look and is perfect for contouring cheeks. It is also a more natural look! Cream/liquid blushes create a dewey look.
  2. Skin type: If you have an oily complexion, then powder blush is your go-to. It helps absorb grease for a matte finish. If you have dry skin, go for a cream blush to minimize flaking.
  3. How long they last: Powder blushes don’t last quite as long as liquid blushes. When you wear liquid blush the color lasts longer!

When it comes down to it, it is all about personal preference! Whichever one feels better to you and whichever looks best on you! I’ve found my fave, now it’s time for you to find yours!

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!

When you put on makeup, you want to look your best! You always want to feel young and lively, but what if your makeup makes you look the complete opposite?!  Makeup applications that people do every day can actually make you look years older than you are!  Find out how to avoid these mistakes to have the best makeup look possible!Chelsea Crockett- too much bottom eye liner

  • Thick, heavy black eyeliner can make your eyes pop! But in reality, most people do not apply it correctly. When black eyeliner is placed heavy on the bottom lid, it can make you look like you have darker bags under your eyes than usual.
  • Purchasing the right foundation is crucial. If you apply a thick layer of matte foundation to every inch of your face, it will start to settle into fine lines. Instead, try powder or a sheer liquid foundation. Only use it in the necessary areas.
  • If you have small lips, stay away from dark lip colors. Dark colors make surface area look smaller. For fuller looking lips try a pink or peach color.
  • Light reflects off skin for a luminous glow. If you wear too much powder, your face will not catch the light and your skin will look matte.
  • Never skip blush! Adding a small pink tint to your cheeks instantly brightens your face and makes you look younger!

Trying using these age defying tips next time you apply makeup!

Love you Insiders!

Hey cuties!  Being at a young age, it’s a good thing to show off your natural beauty.  Trying to find a look that highlights your natural features is quick and easy to do.  Before applying any makeup, know that you want to keep it light, light, light.  Your goal is to show your natural self and you can’t do that by caking on makeup to cover it up!

Chelsea Crockett - Natural MakeupThe first step to almost any tutorial is to apply moisturizer and you’re ready to go.  An easy start to this look is to apply an airfoam foundation which will blend perfectly with your skin and keep it extra light.  After, cover up any imperfections with concealer to keep your face looking clean and beautiful.  Place more concealer under and in the inner corners of your eyes to eliminate any dark circles and to brighten up your face as well.  As far as your face goes, finish it off with a light pink blush on the apples of your now rosy cheeks.  And for eyes, that’s easy.  Keep it simple by dabbing a nude colored eye shadow to your eyelids and just a little mascara on your upper and lower lashes.

That should do it!  Everyone has their own natural beauty so it’s time to show off yours!

Love, Chelsea

Putting on makeup seems easy, right?  Just throw on your favorite products and you’re good to go for the day.  Surprisingly, when it comes to makeup, there are a few “don’ts” that most girls aren’t aware of.

  1. DON’T curl your eyelashes after Chelsea Crockett - Applying Makeupyou apply mascara.  I sometimes get asked when to curl eyelashes, before or after you apply mascara?  Before, before, before!  If you wait till after, your lashes will get clumped and messy!  Curling them before allows you to solidify them by adding your mascara after. This leaves them looking just right!
  2. DON’T use eyeliner on your waterline.  If you do this, you probably noticed your eyeliner doesn’t last long.  It removes almost immediately.  Make sure you put it directly on the lid so it stays and leaves you with the look you wanted all along!
  3. DON’T sleep with makeup on.  Be sure to wash off all makeup before you catch some Z’s.  Your skin absolutely hates sticky makeup residue!
  4. DON’T forget to apply eye shadow first.  You don’t want to get caught trying to put your eye shadow on while trying not to smear your eyeliner and mascara!  By doing this, you can also see a better picture of how you want your eye shadow to look and how you want your colors to blend.
  5. DON’T over-do it when it comes to foundation and blush.  Try your hardest to evenly distribute your foundation on your face.  You want to avoid caking on your makeup.  This overlooks the natural and subtle look you’re aiming for.

Love, Chels

Summer is all about the laid back lifestyle: not a care in the world, beach wave hair, and minimal makeup.  Once your skin gets tanner, it’s easier to leave out your foundation!  Try this minimal makeup look with 3 simple products: blush, mascara, and lip gloss.Chelsea Crockett- lip gloss mascara blush

Have you ever wanted that California lifestyle makeup look?  Well, I’ve got it for you!  In Cali, it’s all about letting your natural beauty shine through.  Since your skin will already be tan, there is no need for bronzer!  Try dusting a light pink blush on your cheek bones to give your face a little color!  Next, apply black mascara to your lashes to make your eyes pop!  In this case, eye shadow and eyeliner are not needed.  It would over power the look.  Last, pick out your favorite shade of lip gloss and apply it to your lips.

If you’re all about makeup, I challenge you to try this look.  Although it’ll be different, show everyone how naturally beautiful you are!  Remember, everyone is beautiful!

I love you all!

Orange lipstick can be a tricky lip color to wear.  It requires the right outfit, the right bronzer and the right blush.  To truly pull off an orange lip, follow my simple guide to get the perfect look!Chelsea Crockett- orange lipstick

When it comes to pulling off an orange lip, it’s all about the tan.  If you’re someone who tans easily, wait until you’ve been out in the sun a few times before trying this color.  If you tend to stay pretty pale, then try a shimmery bronzer!  Start by applying the bronzer to your cheek bones and outer part of your forehead.  (Remember: never apply bronzer all over your face!  This will make your makeup looked caked on and make you look darker than you should.)  Finish off your face with a light pink blush!

Two of my favorite shades of clothing to wear with orange lipstick are hot pink and nude.  If you want to stick to the neon trend, throw on a hot pink dress or top.  The contrast of colors will help each one stick out!  If you want to go a more subtle route, try a flesh colored top or dress to let your lips be the primary focus.

I hope all of you can try out this new makeup trend this summer!!

Love,

Chelsea

            Hello darlings!

            One of the most annoying things about makeup is having to reapply it continuously throughout the day.  Smeared eyeliner, disappearing blush, and runny mascara are only a few of the daily problems girls struggle with!  Here are a few pointers for long-lasting makeup:Chelsea Crockett- highlighting

  • Instead of blush, try a cheek stain or gel.  Powdered blush can get rubbed off easily especially those with oily skin.  Because stains, gels, and liquids are so highly pigmented, you’ll be sure to have noticeably pink cheeks all day long!
  • Mascara has the easiest, (and most obvious), solution.  Just use waterproof!  That’s all there is to it.  Buy some here:http://tiny.cc/MaybellineMascara
  • For eyeliner, liquids and gels last the longest.  If you’re more of a pencil user, there’s still a solution!  Apply your pencil eyeliner, then put a matching shade of eye shadow on top.  This will help keep the liner right where you left it.
  • Last but not least, foundation seems to be one of the hardest powders to keep locked into place.  The best formulas to use are oil-free.  This way the foundation finds it harder to slide off your skin.

            Let me know what you use to keep your makeup on in the comment section below.

Hi Girls,

            Fall and winter are great times of the year!  Unfortunately, it’s that time when your summer tan fades.  So what should you do to keep that summer glow all winter long?  Check out a few of these beauty tips to get a nice tan without hitting the tanning bed! 

            In the winter, most of your body is covered up with clothing.  If you’re just looking for a glowing face and not planning on sporting a bathing suit any time soon, then go for a powered bronzer!  Apply your foundation as you normally would and begin highlighting your cheek bones with a bronzer suitable for your skin tone.  Since your skin is lighter in the winter, don’t use your summer bronzer, it’ll be too over powering.  Try a lighter bronzer and after highlighter your cheek bones, apply a small amount to the rest of your face.  To top off your look, use a light pink blush to get that summer shine.Chelsea Crockett- bronzer blush duo

            If you want that all around summer glow, go for a tanning lotion!  Try Jergans Natural Glow for a streak free summer tan!  After showering, rub it in like normal lotion and let it dry for about 10 minutes.  You won’t see results right away, so do this every day for about a week!  Don’t go to a tanning bed to get that beautiful summer glow.  Take the healthy route and get the tan you’ve always wanted!     

Love you all!
