Why Mineral Makeup works Miracles

I have been aware of mineral makeup for a while, and I had heard it was so good for your skin, but I never really looked into it. But, recently a dermatologist told me that the reason I am having trouble getting rid of some of my pesky acne is because of my foundation! A lot of times drugstore foundations contain dyes and perfumes and can foster bacteria. Stay tuned to hear why you should make the switch to mineral makeup!mineral-makeup-300x292

Mineral makeup is composed of inorganic minerals and is oil free so it doesn’t promote bacteria growth- Hooray! If you have acne prone skin then this is very important. It is also great for people with sensitive skin because it does not contains harsh perfumes or dyes like I mentioned above. Mineral makeup contains zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, which are both natural sunscreens that provide sun protection against those harsh rays. Another cool aspect is that titanium dioxide has a high light refraction index, which means it reflects light, even higher than that of a diamond! This helps reduce the appearance of skin blemishes and even gives you a glow!

Mineral makeup also offers you great coverage, a natural finish, and a smooth appearance! Although it is a little more expensive than your traditional foundation and powder I think that it is worth it. Think of all the money you will save on acne medicines!

I love the look, feel and finish that mineral makeup gives me. I give it a perfect 10!

Clown Contouring. What is it?

Have you all heard of clown contouring? I hadn’t until recently. Youtuber Bella DeLune started the trend when she decided to stand up to people who called her a clown because she wore too much makeup. She posted a before and after picture of her with her colorfully contoured face clowned-up, and then with the makeup expertly blended, just to show the haters how artful makeup really is.

Bella has started a major trend! Girls everywhere are trying clown contouring…and loving it! It is an exaggerated form of color-correction that isn’t for everyday-wear, because quite frankly it takes quite a bit of time! But, the results are stunning. It made ME want to try my hand at contouring! Take a look at these before and after pics of Bella. She looks gorgeous! I love how she can take the hate and turn it into an educational video to show others her process and her artfulness. As girls we can get hit with a lot or criticism for wearing too much/too little makeup, but I believe that makeup is a form of self-expression! Your face is your own, and you can choose what to do with it! 
 
What do you think? Will you try your hand at clown contouring?

When I think of aloe vera I usually think of the stuff that I put on my skin after a sunburn!  While that’s one of its main purposes, it’s good for so much more than you would ever know!  Keep on reading to find out how you can incorporate aloe vera in your daily routine!

  • Did you know aloe vera can actually be a juice or water? It can be drank straight or added to your favorite smoothie! It is full of amino acids and minerals including A, C, E,Chelsea Crockett- aloe vera drink folic acid, choline, B1, B2, B3, and B6. If you have stomach problems it can aid in digestion by soothing and cleansing the digestion tract. It can also boost the immune system by stimulating white blood cells.
  • Aloe is a primary ingredient used in the cosmetic industry. It’s great for the skin! Not only can it get rid of a nasty sunburn, but it can also make skin more elastic when used as a cream or gel. This keeps skin youthful looking and flexible!

Next time you decide to make a strawberry banana smoothie or put lotion on your face, think about adding aloe vera to your lifestyle!

Love,

Chelsea

How to: Kylie Jenner Lips

What’s the first thing you notice when you see Kylie Jenner? Besides her gorgeous hair and perfect skin, her lips definitely stand out! If you follow her on Instagram, you’ll see that, in almost all of her pictures, she rocks a matte mauve color. There are several different ways and combinations to pull this off, but here are two of my favorites!

  1. NYX Cosmetics is one of my favorite brands to shop for makeup, whether it’s eyeliner, foundation, bronzer, and especially lipstick! They carry the perfect products to get the famous Jenner pout. Their Mauve Slim Lip Pencil is only $3.50 and adds the defined look to your lips that you want. Then, for only $6, you can purchase the Whipped Caviar Matte Lipstick for the flawless finish. If you want a glossier lipstick that doesn’t have exactly a “matte” finish, the Mauve Extra Creamy Round Lipstick works just as well!Chelsea Crockett - NYX Lipsticks
  2.  MAC Cosmetics is yet another brand that I love to get my products from! Along with NYX, they have an almost endless amount of lipstick colors to choose from. Since we’re going for the mauve look, I suggest the Midimauve Lipstick or the Faux Lipstick. On their website, you can check to see which color you think matches best with your skin tone that still gives off the look you’re going for. Highstrung, Fabby, and Plum Dandy are only a few of the many shades that are similar to the color you want. Just pick your favorite and finish it off with MAC’s Whirl Lip Pencil!

Now that you’ve got your dream celeb lips, find the perfect outfit and makeup to highlight them. Kylie’s look is absolutely perfect for fall! So… what are you waiting for?

Love, Chels
