I’ll admit it, I’m a sucker for finding the best mascaras.  Whether I’m feeling a natural look for the day or want my lashes to look big and full, I always have to try a few mascaras before I fall in love with one.  Benefit’s “They’re Real” collection has a wide selection of products to give you the bold eyes you’re looking for!

  • They’re Real! Lengthening Mascara ($24). Chelsea Crockett - Benefit Products Drugstore mascara might be a lot cheaper but they’re not giving you the amazing quality this mascara does.  It lengthens, volumizes, and lifts your eyelashes to give you beautiful lashes all day long!
  • They’re Real! Gel Eyeliner Pen ($12).  If you like matte, waterproof products, then you’ll love this eyeliner pen!  It applies smoothly to your eyelid and is guaranteed to stay on for 24 hours.  It comes in 5 different colors so you can get creative with your makeup!
  • They’re Real! Tinted Primer ($12).  Primer makes a world of a difference.  This brown tinted primer will give you the base you need to apply the lengthening mascara I mentioned above.  These two products will give you your dream lashes!
  • They’re Real! Double the Lip ($20).  I’ve never seen a product like this that works so well!  The lipstick itself is shaped like a teardrop, with the tip being lip liner and the rest of it being lipstick.  So you get two products in one!

I hope you check out this collection!  I promise you, their products are some of the best out there!

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!

Eyelash Curler Tips and Tricks

Let’s face it, unfortunately we all weren’t blessed with naturally long, beautifully curled lashes. Eyelash curlers are supposed to be our solution! They are meant to help our eyelashes to appear full and curled, but sometimes they fall short of their goal. There are a few reasons why your eyelash curler may not be hitting the mark! Here are a few of them.

  1. The curling pad is worn out: Having good pads on your curler is super important! Your curling pads need to be Eyelash-curler-review-184427_Lchanged every three months to ensure you are getting the most out of your curler.
  2. Mascara on the lashes: Curling your lashes when they have mascara on them is no bueno! This causes your lashes to stick to the pads and that is just crazy painful. Curl your lashes, THEN apply mascara.
  3. It isn’t the right size: A lot of eyelash curlers are so cheap that they are not made large enough to fit all of your lashes in the clamp, which causes some lashes to be curled more than others, or some not to be curled at all!
  4. Brush those lashes: When you brush out your lashes before you curl them, you ensure that there will be no “crimps” or tangles in your lashes.

Eyelash curlers can look pretty intimidating. As long as you follow these steps and practice, curling those lashes will be a breeze!

Eyes are the first thing you notice about someone. Whether it’s their gorgeous eye shadow or popping eye color, they draw attention along with luscious, long lashes. Some of us are lucky enough to be born with gorgeous lashes… most of us aren’t so fortunate. Here are a few natural ways to stimulate growth to give you fabulous eye lashes :)!Chelsea Crockett - Long Eyelashes

  • Try brushing your lashes before you apply mascara for a few minutes daily. Make sure your eye lash brush is soft bristled. You don’t want to accidentally hurt them instead of help them. That’s simple enough, right?
  • Petroleum jelly is good for chapped lips, dry skin, etc., but it can also help your lash length! For this, you can do one of two things. Either apply it to your mascara wand or apply it using a lash comb. Both remedies work and will help with moisturizing and stimulating growth.
  • Some vitamins that help your hair grow work just as well for lashes, too! Biotin, for example, is a B-vitamin that can help with brittle nails, hair health, etc., and surprisingly works for your eye lashes as well.
  • Castor oil! This is probably the most recommended remedy. Apply some of it to your lashes before you go to sleep and leave it on overnight. I promise, you’ll see a difference soon enough!
  • Green tea isn’t only for drinking. Apply it with a cotton ball to your lashes and let them soak for a few minutes.

Let me know your secrets for getting your own luscious lashes below!

Real vs. Fake Eyelashes

Have you ever seen someone with gorgeous fake eyelashes and wondered if you could pull off those luscious lashes, too? Whether you worry about looking unnatural or hurting your real lashes, there are several pros to fake lashes… but with pros come cons and I’m here to help you decipher the two!   So, here are my thoughts on the great debate: real vs. fake?

CONS

  • Infections. Not that these are very commonChelsea Crockett - Fake Eyelashes or unavoidable, but they can occur! As long as you use your fake lashes and yours only, then the risk of infection goes way down. Sharing isn’t always good :)! Be extra careful you don’t accidentally get yours switched up with your friends. (Make sure you’re not allergic, too!  Yikes!)
  • You have to be very careful when putting on your false lashes. If you’re wearing long-lasting ones, you have to be sure not to drip the glue onto your real lashes. You don’t want to accidentally pull off your real ones when taking off your fake ones! Ouch!
  • The cost is yet another con. Although a set of fake lashes aren’t super pricey, they’re still more than mascara. With mascara, you have several days’ uses for long lashes instead of continually paying the price for false ones.

PROS

  • The most obvious pro is making your lashes look lusher, fuller, and longer than they actually are. If you’re one that has thin, short eyelashes, these might be for you!
  • Another fun positive is being able to dress up your look. Having bolder eyes than you normally do can make your makeup look more formal, and can even brighten up your whole look!
  • False lashes come in a huge variety of sizes, shapes, prices, etc. You can get individual lashes that are more natural looking or go full out and get a thick strip to make your eyes pop!

I prefer real lashes for the more natural look and quick application, but I’ll let you decide! So… real or fake?

Finding the perfect mascara can be tricky. Some barely coat your lashes, while other make them look clumpy.  Finding the right balance is the trick!  So how can you get perfectly plump lashes without trying multiple mascaras?  Baby powder!  Sounds crazy, I know, but in a few simple steps you’ll have longer, fuller lashes.Chelsea Crockett- baby powder eyelashes

Start by applying your normal mascara once or twice on your upper and lower lashes as a base. While the mascara is still wet, place a small amount of baby powder on a Q-Tip and coat your lashes with it from base to tip.  At this point, your lashes should look white, not black.  Lastly, apply a final coat of mascara.  The mascara will attach to the baby powder for added length and volume.

I love how easy it is make your lashes longer and fuller without the hassle of trying hundreds of mascaras! Chances are, you’ve got baby powder hiding in a drawer in your house already!

XOXO,

Chelsea
