Urban Decay’s Rehab Makeup Prep Collection has all your makeup prep needs fulfilled with just four products!  This collection targets your face, lips, skin, and pores specifically with each different gel or serum.  I wanted to tell you a little bit more about their Rehab Makeup and show you just how great each product is!

  • Hot Springs Hydrating Gel ($28). Chelsea Crockett - Rehab Makeup Prep I’ve always tried to find a hydrating gel or cream that gives my skin the nourishment it needs without making it look or feel oily.  They made this product ultralight so it won’t weigh down your skin while hydrating it at the same time!
  • Lip Love ($15).  This lip balm is an oil-based formula that leaves your lips smooth and soft.  It provides the perfect base for applying lipstick, lip gloss, or whatever lip product you’re rocking that day.
  • Pretty Gritty Skin Polish ($28).  Dry or peeling skin can oftentimes be the hardest surface to try and apply a long-lasting face of makeup to.  And since it’s summertime, I’m sure lots of us have some peeling skin here and there.  Use this polish to exfoliate your skin for a perfectly smooth face!
  • Pore Refining Peel ($26).  Are your pores clogged with oil, dirt, or other bacteria?  If your skin feels heavy and oily, try using this peel-off face mask to draw out any impurities that are harming your skin!

Have you ever tried out this collection?  If so, tell me which product is your favorite and why in the comments below!

Are You Shaving Your Legs the Right Way?

Usually when we need to shave our legs, we simply like to get the job done.  But there’s certain things that we can do to make our legs smoother, more hydrated, and better shaved!  Here are a few tips and tricks that will make you think twice about how you’ve been shaving your legs!

Before: With shaving, it’s all about making your legs as smooth as possible.  The day before (or at least before you shave), use a scrub to exfoliate.  Chelsea Crockett - Vaseline LotionThis will clear out any dead skin and leave your skin smooth for a gentle, clean shave!

During:  Before jumping in and shaving right away, wait toward the end of the shower.  The heat and moisture will loosen up your pores and allow for a better shave!  Although this may be obvious, make sure you’re shaving in the opposite direction of your hair.  Also, a gel or foam is the best product to use to prevent dryness, rashes, or razor burns!

After:  Especially when you shave, you’ll need to moisturize and hydrate your skin.  Try using a lotion that isn’t overly perfumed or includes a ton of alcohol like the one on the left.  This way you can make sure your legs are getting all the hydration they need!

If you’re not following these pointers, then I urge you to do so!  They really do make a difference!

Many of us are guilty of spending hundreds of dollars on hair styling products. Brands such as Chi can charge over a hundred dollars for a single straightener… Yikes! There are hundreds of different brands that offer the same types of products, but do they work just as well? Or is it worth the splurge?Chelsea Crockett - Hair Styling Tools I’m here to answer your questions!

Don’t get me wrong, the brand Chi offers amazing hair products. Their prices may be high, but their quality is worth it. They’re long-lasting and work really well on all different types of hair. That being said, there are many other brands that have the same effect as the higher quality products. When you’re shopping for a new straightener or curler, it’s hard to know which product you’re getting the best deal on based off the box or price. I suggest reading up on reviews and ratings before buying! They’re usually pretty accurate and can save you time and money!

As for styling products such as gels and oils, the same rules can be applied. One product that comes to mind is Moroccan Oil which can be pretty pricey. Argon oil from Target works almost just as well and is much more reasonably priced! You have to read up on different reviews of products to see if they’re worth the money!

DIY Gel Manicure

Going to get your nails done is always a great time! Getting a gel manicure is wonderful, because it lasts for about 2 weeks. You get to sit back, relax, and have someone else do all the work…it’s fun until the bill comes. The problem is that it’s SO expensive! They’re great to get every once in a while, but affording to keep them up can be costly. I recently discovered a way to give yourself a gel manicure at home with a few simple (and cheap) products! Take a look!Chelsea Crockett- Gelous Advanced Nail Gel

What you’ll need:

  • Gelous Advanced Nail Gel Coat: the must-have!
  • ANY nail polish
  • ANY top clear coat

This requires 6 coats, but I promise it’s worth it! Also, let nails fully dry between each coat of polish. Keep each application thin and don’t apply too much polish at one time. Apply each polish in this order:

  1. Gelous Advanced Nail Gel Coat
  2. Nail Polish Color
  3. Gelous Advanced Nail Gel Coat
  4. Nail Polish Color
  5. Top Coat
  6. Gelous Advanced Nail Gel Coat

Voilà, you’re all done! Make sure you give your nails plenty of time to dry before doing anything. You’ve just created your own perfect set of gel nails!

If now isn’t a better time to try out gel nails, I don’t know when is! Gel nail polish is extremely popular right now and healthier for your nails than acrylics. You can get them done at almost any nail salon or you can even do them at home yourself! Here are some tips to get salon nails at home!

Chelsea Crockett - Gel Nail Polish KitFirst off, you will have to purchase a gel nail starter kit. You can find one at Sephora, Ulta, or on Amazon (If you want to explore some, click here!). They can be pricey, so putting it on the top of your Christmas wish list isn’t a bad idea! After you have your kit, the directions will let you know the next step… But getting the salon finish isn’t hard with a little advice.

For each of your polish coats, here are a couple secrets to keep them long-lasting. First, make sure your cuticles aren’t overgrown. Second, make sure you keep the polish from touching your skin. Both of these secrets will prevent your polish from peeling off within the first few days. Another tip that may or may not be obvious is to keep your nails clipped. If your nails are brittle and overgrown, they’re more likely to break off along with your polish!

So… what’s a better thing to be listed on the top of your Christmas wish list?

Enjoy! – Chelsea

Disguise Crying, Puffy Eyes

Tears are a part of life!  Whether you’re crying because of good or bad news, because you’re sad or happy, or because you just saw The Fault in Our Stars,…

Tears are a part of life!  Whether you’re crying because of good or bad news, because you’re sad or happy, or because you just saw The Fault in Our Stars, tears can be tough to avoid!  If you’re an overly emotional person, then you know exactly what I am talking about!  What about that time you cried at a wedding, but had to look presentable for pictures afterwards?  Well, no worries!  In a few simple steps, you can disguise your crying, puffy eyes!Chelsea Crockett- garnier anti puff eye roller

Before applying makeup, use a cool gel de-puffing eye roller under the eyes.  This will immediately wake them up and prepare them for makeup.  If your eyes are red, then use a green toned primer to counteract the redness.  You can also use a brightening primer to make your eyes look more refreshed.  Next, using liquid concealer, apply a light layer to your under eyes for a smooth finish.  No one will even know you’ve been crying!  Reapply your mascara and you’re good to go!

Next time you find yourself crying, don’t panic.  With makeup, there is always a solution!

Love,

Chelsea

Hi Insiders!

Smelling good is definitely essential.  It feels great putting on a new perfume and walking out of the house.  Even trying new perfumes is fun!  Unfortunately over time, your sweet smell will wear off.  Lucky for you, I’ve got a few simple tips to make your perfume last longer.  Smell amazing all the time!

Rubbing in perfume on your wrists and neck are the most popular areas to spray your sweet aroma.  Although most people do this, don’t!  Instead, spray your perfume in the air and walk through it so it will stick to your clothes.  If you spray the perfume on your neck or wrists don’t rub it in.  This causes the scent to disappear more quickly.  Let it dry on the surface of your skin.  Even try spraying perfume or Febreze in your closet to make your clothes smell fresh all the time!  If your perfume comes with a lotion and gel combo, then be sure to use it!  That’s one of the simplest ways to smell amazing!Chelsea Crockett- perfume

Another great way to smell great is to use shoe spray.  Your shoes are one of the smelliest clothing items in your closest.  Have fresh smelling feet with scented odor dissolving spray!  One of the newest fragrant products is scented nail polish.  Check out your local department to have delectable smelling hands!

Smell lovely beauty gurus!Smile
