Now is the time to take your makeup routine from soft and dewy to matte and rich. Summer makeup is all about soft tones, sheer coverage and natural vibes. Fall is about rich hues, smoky eyes and trendy tones. I’ll fill you in on how to transition your makeup routine from summer to fall! All it takes is a few minor switches.

  1. Start with the lips. During the summer I love wearing pink and coral colored lip shades. This fall opt for sheer, translucent stains of plum or burgundy. Last year’simages lip trend was opaque oxblood, but this year it is a little more subdued. There is also a trend of wearing unique lip shades such as navy, but I don’t know if I am ready to tackle that one!
  2. Next follow up with the eyes. Trade out neutral shadows with this year’s hottest eye trend: crimson. Create a smoky eye with crimson and russet tones.
  3. Figure out the finish. Summer makeup is dewy and makes your face glow, where as usual fall foundation has a matte finish. This year, avoid the “flat” look by using foundations and powders that allow your natural complexion to show through.
  4. Make your moisturizer count. In the summer you sweat a lot and the humidity keeps your skin moist. Cooler times call for different measures. Cold temps dry out your skin, so use creamy cleansers and moisturizers to make sure your face gets the moisture it needs! No one likes flaky skin on their face.

The transition from summer to fall makeup is completely painless! Easy peasy.

Beginner’s Guide to Eye Makeup

Are you new at the whole “makeup” thing? I know when I first started wearing makeup I had no clue what I was doing, and it was a little scary! It is hard to know where to even start! That is when I started watching YouTube videos to help show me how to do my makeup, and then once I learned I started making videos of my own. Eye makeup is my favorite because your eyes are what most people look at when they are talking to you and are the “windows to the soul.” Here are a few tips that helped me master the art of eye makeup:

Liner tips:fullsizerender-49

  • Use primer on your eyelids before you apply liner to avoid smudged liner
  • When you want your eyes to look bigger, use a white liner pencil on the inner rims of your eyes and the black liner on the outside.
  • Another tip on how to make your eyes look bigger is to use a softer pencil that smudges easily to make a more natural line.
  • Make sure to keep your liner as close to your lash line as possible so it blends seamlessly with them.

Mascara tips:

  • Apply mascara near the roots and the not the tips or your lashes to make your eyelashes look longer.
  • Make sure your eyelashes don’t clump together because they will look yucky, and to avoid this shake the brush horizontally to separate them while applying mascara.
  • For the bottom eye lash, you can use a tissue paper to prevent spoiling your makeup.

Eye shadow tips:

  •  Brush the base color (lightest color) on the eyes up to the brow bone first, then apply the lid color (the medium color) and lastly the highlighter (the darkest color).
  • Accentuate your eyes by using the same eye shadow as the color of your eye.

Hopefully these little tips will help you become a master at eye makeup! It is not too hard once you get the hang of it. J

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!

Beauty Products to Never Share

Whether it’s with your college roommate or at a sleepover, it’s easy to get beauty products mixed up or forget to bring your own. Sharing anything from makeup to facewash doesn’t sound like a big deal, right? Wrong! Using other’s beauty products spreads bacteria and can even lead to infection! Check out which products should be avoided!Chelsea Crockett- sharing mascara

  • Eye makeup and mascara are the very worst to share with friends. Since your eye is watery, it is a trap for bacteria. Avoid an eye infection by keeping your eye makeup to yourself!
  • Admit it; most of us are guilty of not cleaning our makeup brushes. Brushes can hold on to bacteria and dirt, which can make yours or a friends face breakout!
  • Cold sores, sore throats, and other sicknesses can be transferred through lip gloss and lipstick! Keep those to yourself!
  • Facial cleansing brushes are a no-go when it comes to sharing. This can lead to a skin infection, especially if you have any type of rash or acne prone area! Anything that touches open sores shouldn’t be shared!
  • Razors are never meant to be shared…I mean, do I even need to go into detail on this one?

If reading this doesn’t make you want to keep your beauty products to yourself, then I don’t know what does! Let’s practice safe beauty!

XOXO,

Hi Lovelies!

          Wearing glasses is a normal everyday thing for a lot of us.  Unfortunately they cover up the prettiest part of your face…your eyes.  Making sure your makeup is on point is very important!  You don’t want your glasses to be the main focus.  Follow these simple tips to make sure you look as beautiful as ever while wearing your glasses.Chelsea Crockett- makeup with glasses

  • Wear liner that is a different color from your frames.  If the colors are the same, it’s more likely that your eyes will blend in with the glasses.  Make sure they stand out!
  • Avoid dark eye shadow.  Wearing light eye shadow will make your eyes pop behind the lenses.
  • Mascara on the bottom of your lashes is normally a good thing…except when you’re wearing glasses.  The dark frame around the bottom of your eye and the mascara on your bottom lashes can cause the look of dark circles under your eyes.
  • Thick glasses call for thick eyeliner, while thin glasses call for thin eyeliner!  Don’t mix the two up.
  • Be sure to curl your lashes!  Curling your lashes will open up your eyes, making them appear to be bigger.
  • Don’t forget about the rest of your skin!  Just because glasses focus more on your eyes, doesn’t mean you don’t need to put a little foundation on!

Have fun trying these simple tips text time you rock your glasses!

Love,

Chelsea

Putting on eyeshadow is an art. Did you know that there is a certain order that you are supposed to apply your eyeshadow in? By using these simple steps you can maximize the effects of your eyeshadow and make your eyes pop! Here they are:

chelsea crockett

  1. On the inside of your eyelid, the part closest to your nose, is where you focus the lightest shade.
  2. In the middle of your lid, transition from the light shade to a medium shadow color.
  3. On the outside edge of your lid is where you focus the darker “smokey” color
  4. Use a transition color to blend the dark outside color and middle color together. Check out the diagram to see how to do it!

I use these tips all the time, so I know that you will love them! Try them out and comment below and tell me if they work for you!

“Ugh, glasses, they’re so nerdy”……WRONG!  Glasses are starting to make their way back into the fashion world.  They are seen on the front cover of fashion magazines and runways all over the world.  Now it’s your turn to throw away those contacts and give your glasses a try.  What was once nerdy is now fabulously chic! Chelsea Crockett- ray-ban glasses

            Glasses should always enhance your face, not cover it up.  Think of them as an accessory, not a necessity (even though they are).  Thick “ray-ban” styled glasses are all the rage.  They give each and every outfit that edgy look with a sophisticated twist.   Try them in a bold black and soft brown to bring out your eyes.  Be sure to enhance your eye makeup to keep your eyes a key focus.  You don’t want your glasses to over-shadow your beautiful eyes!  Another cool trend to try is ombré glasses.  It gives your glasses that eye catching appearance and have a modern feel to them.  They are casual yet dressy!  You can wear them to a wedding or just to class.  Remember, glasses are a must have!  While I’m not condoning to wear glasses if you don’t need to, it’s not a crime to buy a fake pair to wear every once in a while.  Embrace your glasses and your hot new look!
