Contouring is the biggest fad in the makeup industry right now!  Basically, it’s highlighting and bronzing key parts of your face to either make them stand out or be covered up.  It’s a great way to make your face look flawless.  While contouring can make you look radiant, knowing how to do it is key.  It can look quite “clown-like” if done incorrectly.  Check out how to contour the most important features of your face! Chelsea Crockett- contouring cheek bones

What you’ll need:

Contouring palette (light and dark)

Light eye shadow

Beauty Blender

Nose: For the effect of a slimmed down nose, place the dark color along the outside bridges of your nose and the light color along the top.

Cheek bones:   For the look of super-model high cheek bones, suck in your cheeks and apply the dark color into the sunken in area.  Add the lighter color to the cheek bones themselves. 

Eyes:  To make your eyes pop, apply a light, shimmery eye shadow to the entire lid and the dark color along the bone above the lid. 

The most important part of contouring comes last: blending.  When applying the light and dark colors, just put a stripe across each area.  Then, blend both colors together so no lines are visible.  The result?  A picture perfect face!

Enjoy experimenting with makeup!

We all know that black and white are the chicest of all color combos.  It’s the ultimate mix between light and dark shades and will never go out of style!  Some color combinations can be tricky and look misplaced if not paired with the right color!  It’s important to contrast correctly and when done right…it looks amazing!Chelsea Crockett- emerald green and tan outfit

Pastel shades are absolutely perfect for the upcoming spring season, but wearing too many light colors can wash a person out (especially since bronzed summer skin hasn’t arrived yet).  Pastel blue and pink look amazing paired with a dark charcoal grey!  Try dark grey skinny’s with a pastel sweater, blouse, or jacket!

Another one of my favorite color combos are emerald green and light tan/cream.  The green will bring out more brownish tone of the tan, while still keeping it subtle.  It’s a great way to wear a bold color without going overboard!  Try this with dark teal and heather grey as well!

Don’t be afraid to mix light and dark colors.  It can be done during any season and always looks high fashion!

XOXO,

Chelsea

Makeup in the 1900’s was so fun and lively; so when I watched the movie The Great Gatsby, I became inspired by each and every look! I looked more into how they did the makeup and wanted to share one of my favorite tips I learned! Keep on reading to find out how you can get The Great Gatsby inspired lip look! Chelsea Crockett- The Great Gatsby Lip

Start by choosing your lip color. The colors used for this look are dark and deep, so go with a maroon or wine shade. Begin by applying a primer so the dark colors don’t sink into your lip lines. Next, using a lip pencil of the same color as your lipstick, fill in your entire lip. This will keep the color looking rich all night long. Apply the lipstick, preferably a long-lasting brand, and spread it evenly on your upper and bottom lip. You can even use a lip brush to fill in the lines. Last, apply a gloss of the same shade on your bottom lip and rub them together. This will give your lips that “plump” illusion, while bringing out the rich colors.

There you have it! Now you can put on a little black dress and rock your Gatsby inspired lip all evening!

XOXO,

Chelsea
