Concealer is one of the best beauty tools in the world.  You can hide your tiredness by disguising dark circles or conceal stubborn pimples that won’t go away.  It color corrects, brightens, and evens out your skin to give you the perfect foundation for a beautiful face of makeup.  With that being said, we should know what we’re doing wrong with our concealer to guarantee that we’re making the most out of our product! 

  1. Rubbing in your concealer with your finger.Chelsea Crockett - Naked Concealer  It may be gross to think about, but our fingers are covered in dirt, oil, and lots of bacteria.  Our fingers also don’t absorb any of our concealer like a beauty blender would which leaves it feeling caked on.  A beauty blender will blend it evenly and leave you without creases or streaks!
  2. Using the same concealer for all your blemishes, dark circles, etc.  Although this isn’t necessarily the wrong way of doing it, you can get much better coverage by using differently textured concealers.  For dark circles, try using a thicker concealer such as a cream based one.  As for pimples, try using a light, liquid concealer!  
  3. Applying your concealer first as your base.  Although you may be anxious to cover up those zits as soon as you wake up, you won’t get your best coverage by starting with concealer.  Apply your foundation first, then apply your concealer!

What mistake are you making?  Now you know what to change when it comes to applying concealer!

Have you ever wondered how celebrities make their skin look flawless in every picture they post?  Is it their makeup?  Or maybe some app that eliminates blemishes?  Although some people really do have naturally perfect skin, there are certain things you can do to make your selfies look insta-perfect!

  • Use a serum to enhance your glow.  Instead of highlighting your face, try using a serum to enhance the glow of your whole face, not just above your cheekbones. 
  • Get rid of acne and pimples with a dab of concealer.  Whenever I have pesky pimples that don’t want to go away, I always cover them up with a little concealer.  After it sits for a minute or so, even it out with some foundation or powder.
  • Camouflage your dark circles with concealer followed by a setting powder.  Dark circles can make you look 10x more tired than you actually are.  If you want an insta-perfect selfie, make them disappear by applying concealer to make the area a little more lively.Chelsea Crockett - Concealer
  • To add to a more natural look, try using a darker foundation to add depth to your face instead of fully contouring it.  It’s always good to have a foundation that’s two to three shades darker than your normal shade for purposes like this!

Try some of these tricks out next time you want to take a killer selfie!  They really work!

You may or may not have heard of the newest ice roller beauty trend.  If you haven’t, well then you’re in for a treat!  I’ve always heard that ice and coolness can help certain aspects of your skin such as dark circles, wrinkles, etc.  Here’s a little insight on why you should try it out for yourself!

As I’ve said already, applying ice to breakouts, morning under-eye bags, etc. can reduce redness and swelling.  Chelsea  Crockett - Ice RollersSo with that being said, I was super intrigued when I first heard about ice rollers.  It’s described as an inexpensive cooling therapy for your skin that is proven to result in many noticeable benefits!  Applying the coolness of an ice roller increases blood flow, which reduces redness, inflammation, and tightens your skin.

If you break it down, it’s actually a very simple product.  Ice rollers are either filled with gel or water and kept in the freezer to maintain their temperature.  They have many short and long term benefits including wrinkle and pore reduction and minimizing puffy morning eyes!  Some are as cheap as $15 while others can creep up to $70 or $80!

Ice rollers are a much bigger product in Asia and Europe than they are in America, but they are starting to make their debut!  Buy one and watch the magic happen for yourself!

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!

“Sleep considered to be sufficient to keep one looking young and beautiful.” This is the real definition of what us girls call beauty sleep. Whether sleep really helps us stay looking awake and youthful, there is some evidence behind the truth of it. So… beauty sleep: real or fake?

You all know the feeling of staying up way too late for a big test the next morning. Then, the minute you wake up and look in the mirror, the bagsChelsea Crockett - Dark Circles under your eyes show everyone else just how much sleep you actually got. Dark circles are one of the first indicators of lack of sleep. And let’s face it, we all hate dark circles and would do anything to get rid of them. Sleep really does help and is one of the only ways to fully reduce those awful circles!

Sleep benefits more than just tired eyes. Your skin actually replenishes and repairs itself faster while you sleep. A lack of sleep can slow or disrupt this process. As teenagers, we’re supposed to get a recommended 8 hours of sleep. Without enough of it, our skin ages faster. Along with that, your skin actually loses its radiance. It’s proven that little sleep can make your skin look duller.

Beauty sleep is REAL! A continued lack of sleep can actually make a difference. So ladies, buy a planner or make a schedule to make sure you get your hours in! You won’t only feel different but look different too!

XOXO – Chelsea
