Too Faced has always been one of my favorite makeup brands.  They always have such fun, unique products that carry out the quality they promise!  This upcoming fall, they’re coming out with a new Peaches & Cream Collection with several new products that will give you the perfect matte finish you’ve always wanted!  Here’s what to expect.

  • Peach Perfect Comfort Matte Foundation.  This foundation comes in 12 different shades so no shade is left out!  This matte formula is guaranteed to last over 12 hours so you won’t have to worry about it rubbing off throughout your day.
  • Peach My Cheeks Melting Powder Blush.  I’m so excited to try out this blush because although it looks like a cream blush, it applies as a powder.  So, it’s perfect if you’re looking for a light, free feeling!Chelsea Crockett - Too Faces Makeup
  • Bronzed Peach Melting Powder Bronzer.  Just like the blush, this product may look creamy but it’ll apply as a smooth powder!  It’s not too heavy but still gives you the perfect glow you’re looking for.

Smashbox’s 3 Step Contouring for Beginners

Contouring is a difficult process that I’m still learning to perfect myself. One side is always too dark, too light, too whatever, and it’s hard to master the process! Chelsea Crockett - Smashbox TrioSmashbox has come out with a much easier way to successfully contour… So, for those of you that want a quick and easy process, follow this three step guide.

To start out, you’ll need to purchase Smashbox’s Step-by-Step Contour Stick Trio pictured on the left. This product includes three different makeup sticks: the contour, the highlighter, and the bronzer. The main focus of this trio is to shape and define your jawline, nose, and of course, cheekbones. The contour stick adds the shaping feature to your face while the highlight stick brings brightness to the area. Chelsea Crockett - ContourThe bronzer works to blend the two together to create the perfect blended contour!

Once you’ve bought the set, you’re ready to begin! Depending on your skin tone and face structure, you’ll have to play around with where and how much you’ll apply to your skin. Add the contour stick to the areas shown on the picture to the right. Then apply the highlight stick to the areas above the cheekbones. Finish by blending the two together with the bronze stick!

Smashbox considers this trio one of their favorites because it “mimics perfect lighting.” So… what are you waiting for?!

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!

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!

Contouring can be such a difficult task. Sometimes magazine articles, blogs, and YouTube videos can’t even help you! Although once you perfect it, you’ll basically feel like a professional makeup artist :). If you’re one of the fortunate that do… here are a few “don’ts” you need to avoid when learning how to contour!

  • First of all, make sure you get the right products for your skin. Some people watch YouTube tutorials and automatically buy those products right off the bat… But if your skin is super sensitive and doesn’t always react well to unknown products, find some that will react well to your skin (such as Clinique or Bare Minerals). Think before you buy!Chelsea Crockett - Contouring
  • Check your bronzer/foundation to make sure you have the right shades for your skin. If you’re pale, don’t go out and buy a super dark shade of bronzer. It’s mostly common sense!
  • The number one mistake made when contouring is not blending in your bronzer. Visible makeup lines are perfect examples of what NOT to do! Make sure you use the right brush that thoroughly blends in your concealer, bronzer, and blush.
  • Lastly, you must know where and how much concealer to apply on your face. You don’t want super white under eyes and extra dark cheek bones!

Good luck! – Chels

Our skin and overall complexion changes drastically from winter to summer. From pale to tan, no freckles to a face full of freckles, and a bad complexion to a good complexion…this change calls for a full “makeup makeover”! So how exactly do you go about switching over your makeup? What do you keep and what do you set aside for a few months? I’ve got you covered!Chelsea Crockett- bright lipstick

In the winter it’s all about faking the tan with bronzer and rocking a dark or nude lip. This is not the case for the summer! Since your skin will already be tan, ditch the foundation (except for covering up blemishes) and bronzer and stick with an icy pink blush. It’s great to contrast the dark and light colors. Don’t try to make yourself tanner by adding bronzer to your already bronzed face. It’s also time to swap your maroon lipstick for hot pinks and orange! These colors will make you look tanner and can actually act as an accessory to a plain colored dress or outfit. It’s also important to realize that less IS more! Ditch the dark eyeshadow and heavy eyeliner and go all-natural! All you really need is a good icy blush, mascara, and some fun lipstick to give yourself the perfect summer makeover. HAPPY SUMMER INSIDERS!

XOXO,

Chelsea

Bronzers are great for giving you that sun kissed look and beautiful glow.  How to get this is very easy and affordable!

Chelsea Crockett - BronzerAt only $9, NYX cosmetics carry a Matte Bronzer powder.  Known for how well it blends, this bronzer gives you a super natural look that still gives you the glow every girl wants.  It also comes in five different shades so you will be sure to find one that will match perfectly with your skin tone.  One way to make sure you don’t overcoat your bronzer is to focus on three spots: your forehead, cheekbones, and jaw line.  This way you can get full coverage without making your face look too tan for your body.  If you have extra sensitive skin, try using Clinique’s True Bronze Pressed Powder Bronzer.  This will guard your skin against unwanted breakouts or rashes and still give you the glow you want.  After applying, make sure you show off your sun kissed look!  That’s all there is to it!

We have already discussed the minimalist jewelry trend, so might as well hit minimalist makeup as well! Minimalist makeup is pretty much defined by the “natural” look. Like the minimalist jewelry trend, less is more. Here are three must-have products to pull off the minimalist makeup trend:NaturalBronzer_TEASER_0

  1. Mascara: a little mascara goes a long way! Mascara enhances your natural features, so it is the definition of all
    natural makeup.
  2. Lip color: even if it is just a little bit of color, it still adds a little something something to your look!
  3. Bronzer: bronzer adds definition to your face, and also helps to contour your cheeks. When you are wearing less makeup, you want to define your features.
  4. BB Cream: This stuff is a lot lighter than foundation, so it is more natural looking and feeling!

Want to try for a more natural look? Try the minimalist makeup trend!

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

Have you ever been in a rush and realized you ran out of the one beauty product you needed?  Well don’t worry!  Luckily, there are a handful of beauty hacks that you can use to substitute almost any product; and all of them can be found lying around your house!  Check it out!

  • Doing your nails can be a hassle, especially when you run of out nail polish remover.  Although it may smell strong, you can use your perfume to remove the polish.  Spray the perfume on a cotton ball and it’ll do the trick!
  • Have you ever run out of primer?  No problem!  Put a thin layer of aloe vera gel on your skin as a substitute.  The aloe will reduce pores and smooth over skin.  It will also help your makeup stay on longer.
  • Bronzer is a girl’s best friend, but only when you use it in the right amounts!  If you ever run out, try cocoa powder.  Use this in small amounts, for it may be darkerChelsea Crockett- cocoa powder bronzer than you’d like.
  • Are you feeling stinky, but realize you are out of deodorant?  Simply mix together baking soda with water and dab it on under your arms.  It’ll eliminate the smells!
  • Out of eyeliner?  Using an angled brush, lightly dab the brush onto your mascara brush and then use that as your eyeliner.

When life gives you problems, beauty problems that is, remember there’s always a way to fix it!

Fake a Summer Tan Even in the Winter!

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!

            Spring is just around the corner; and thanks to the runways of New York and London Fashion Week, we’ve got a heads up on all the fabulous trends to keep our eye on this spring.  From eyes to lips to skin, I’ve got all the details on how you can be makeup forward this spring season!

            This spring, it’s all about the eyes!  Try a soft berry (purple/pink) lip with light pink eye shadow and bold eyeliner with dark lashes.  The contrast of colors will really show off the berry tones!  If you want to go for a retro look, the cat eye has made its comeback!  Start by using a liquid liner making the line thicker as you reach the outer corner.  Another option with eye liner is to use white liner.  For brighter eyes, line your top lid with white liner and skip out on bottom liner.  It’s the perfect way to transition into spring.Chelsea Crockett- white eyeliner

            Bronzed glowing skin is a must this spring, but this does not mean to hop in a tanning bed!  Instead, opt for a shimmering bronzer and light highlighter to bring out your bone structure.  Lightly brush on bronzer over your foundation and down your neck.  Next, apply a creamy stick highlighter to your cheek bones, eyebrow bones, and above your lip to make every feature pop!  Also, be sure to use moisturizer.  Hydrated skin is glowing skin!

            Staying on point with trends each season is very important!  Now you can be on top on things as soon as spring strikes!  Have fun with your beauty routine!

Happy spring,

            Chelsea
