I hate when I spend half an hour doing my makeup only to be disappointed with how it turns out.  Whenever this happens, it’s usually because my face looks too dark or too dull.  I found a guide on Pinterest that helps me take any dull look and transform it into a bright, glowing face of makeup!

  • Inner corners of eyeChelsea Crockett - Bright Makeups.  Making your eyes brighter is the key to making your entire face appear brighter.  Lightening around your eyes, especially around the inner corners, will not only make your eyes pop but make you look more radiant than before!
  • On top of cheekbones.  You have to make sure you lighten your cheekbones because they cover such a huge area of your face.  Use a light highlighter that will make your cheekbones pop but leave you with that natural look, as well.
  • On top of nose.  Since your nose is the most central part of your face, you can’t forget about brightening that area, too.  Take your highlighter and apply it lightly to the bridge and tip of your nose to give it a little pop! 
  • Center of lips.  You may not have heard of this before, but adding a little white shimmer to the center of your lips can make them appear bigger and obviously brighter!  Try it out for yourself!

Try out these steps and let me know if your makeup look does a total 180 like mine does after following this guide! 🙂

Instagram is all the rage right now!  It’s almost become a sort of art work!  When it comes to the pictures themselves, making sure they’re perfectly brightened, contrasted, and cropped is key to achieving the perfect Insta pic.  Keep on reading for my greatest tips, tricks, and applications.

Afertlight is one of my favorite picture editing apps from the App Store!  Although it’s $0.99, it’s totally worth it.  You can choose between filters, brighten, contrast, saturate, add borders, and crop photos!  When brightening a photo, don’t go overboard!  If your nose or other facial features start to disappear, then you know you’ve gone a little overboard.  Brighten it enough so that you can easily view the scenery, background, or person.  Next, contrast photos that seem a little blurry or need to be sharpened.  Sometimes too much contrast can make a photo look fake, so be careful!Chelsea Crockett- Afterlight

When it comes to picking a filter, remember…less is more.  Try choosing colors that look natural, but bring out the beauty of the photo.  Trying to “make yourself look better” shouldn’t always be your goal.  Last, if desired, try adding a border to make the photo stand out or more unique.  The sky’s the limit!

Happy editing!

Brighten, Tone, & Soothe With Homemade Face Scrubs

Hi girls!

Store-bought face masks and scrubs can sometimes be expensive and threatening to your skin.  You have to be careful with what you pick and choose to try on your face.  Luckily, there are several household ingredients you can mix together to create your perfect face scrub to give off a brighter, smoother feel!

Brightening and toning our faces is something we could all use every once and a while.  A simple recipe for this includes strawberries, almond oil, and sugar.  There are no exact measurements for each ingredient, so you can make as much as you want and however thick you want it!  I suggest using a small dish and filling it about halfway with sugar.  Then, add a little bit of almond oil.  Smash up about four or five strawberries and add them to your paste.  The end product should be a perfect brightening scrub!

Chelsea Crockett - Cucumber ScrubTo soothe sensitive skin, we can make an easy scrub using cucumbers, avocado oil, and brown sugar.  Once again, there are no set measurements, so you can make it to your desired thickness.  For a small amount that works for about one use, take a small dish and fill it, once again, halfway with brown sugar.  Smash up your cucumbers and mix that, and the avocado oil, in with your brown sugar.  And you’re done!  Wash your face and rinse with warm water!

Let me know how your beautiful, new skin turns out!
