Glitter is one of those things you either love or hate.  As long as it’s in moderation, I like adding a little shimmer to spice up my look.  If you’re a hardcore glitter lover, then I have a few hacks that will glitter-up almost any makeup look you’re trying out.  Here are five glitter hacks to satisfy your obsession!

  • Add a tiny amount of finely powdered glitter into your finishing spray.  Chelsea Crockett - Glitter LipsAfter your makeup is complete, apply this spray to make your whole face shine!
  • You can make your own body shimmer by mixing together body oil and loose shimmer pigment.  Then apply it wherever you want to make your body glow!
  • If you want to make your lips “glittered-out,” apply a coat of lip gloss to your lips.  Then, apply finely-sorted glitter to your lips with a Q-tip.  It will stick right to the gloss!
  • Use eyelash glue as a base for any glitter accents you want to add around your face.  If you’re going for that Coachella look, you can add glitter dots all around your eyes using this method!
  • Have you ever seen the glitter roots trend?  You can paint some glitter onto your part using a small eyeshadow brush.  Look at the pic above for example!  How unique is that? (Perfect for festival season!)

Which hack is your favorite?  Let me know in the comment section below!

What’s the first thing someone notices about you? Your smile! And what surrounds your dazzling smile? A pair of gorgeous lips! You can gloss them up or throw on a bright pink lip stick. There are many products that help plump your lips, but here are a few natural, inexpensive ways of doing so!

  • Exfoliate! This is the easiest and most recommended way to get the job done.Chelsea Crockett - Exfoliating Lips It not only removes dead skin and makes your lips softer but stimulates blood flow to the lips causing them to look a little bit bigger than they actually are.
  • Cinnamon. This ingredient increases blood flow, just like exfoliating. There are many, many DIY cinnamon lip plumpers recipes you can look up online! Pinterest is a hot spot for “do it yourself” remedies!
  • Eye shadow. You are probably extremely confused as to why eye shadow could help your lips. Well… it can help create any illusion of bigger lips! First apply your lipstick or gloss and pick a shimmery (or white) eye shadow. Apply it to the inner centers of your lower and upper lip. The effect your lips will have is gorgeous :)!
  • Lastly, don’t be afraid to try out a lip pencil. This will give you beautifully defined lips as well as amplify your look. Get a slightly darker shade than your lipstick/gloss and go to town!

Good luck insiders! Let me know how they turn out :).

When seasons change, so do wardrobes… and when wardrobes change, you have to adjust what colors make your autumn looks pop! Along with cute accessories and a stylish pair of boots, you have to make sure your makeup works to complete your outfit. The perfect way to do that is with a good lipstick to top off your full appearance!

Because bright lipsticks are always a yes, whenever you have the excuse to wear one, DO! Since fall is the time to rock your oranges, don’t be afraid to. For a nice dinner or a Halloween party, break out the orange. If you can pull off the dark red lips, try them out as well! You can’t go wrong with a little bit of color :)!Chelsea Crockett - Orange Lipsticks

Although a pop of color is fun every once and a while, toning it down with neutral shades is gorgeous yet casual. My favorite look is topping a light pink lipstick with gloss. Apply your lipstick then grab a clear gloss that’ll add some shine to your lips! (Beauty secret: add some white eye shadow or concealer to the middle crease above your upper lip. Then apply your lipstick/gloss. It makes your lips look bigger and plumper!)

Tweet me your favorite shades to rock during the fall so I can try them out :)!

            Hey insiders!  Whether you’re trying a natural look or a colorful one, you’ll need a pop of color to fully complete it.  As for me, I am never specifically set on a certain shade.  If I’m going for a more subtle look, I’ll finish it off with a clear or light pink gloss.  If I’m feeling a little more adventurous, I use a red or hot pink color which is fun and will be sure to turn heads. 

            With summer here, one of my favorite glosses is the “Kiss of Cherry” fruity lip care by Nivea which I talked briefly about in my May Favorites 2013 video.  It has an SPF of 15 which comes in handy during a day outside or at the pool.  It also moisturizes your lips and gives them a smooth feel which is definitely a plus!Chelsea Crockett - Red Lips

            Another shade that I can throw on with almost anything is a raspberry shade.  It’s a fun color that highlights those rosy cheeks.  It blends with any look and gives off a bright summer shimmer to your sun kissed skin!

            Hope this helps you next time you’re looking for a pop of color to your daily makeup!
