Hot weather can be a blessing and a curse. Beautiful days spent in the sun can be a sneaky disguise for beauty disasters such as frizzy hair or clogged pores… YUCK! I have a few hacks on how deal with the hot outdoors and get one step ahead of the Mother Nature!

  • What’s one of the first things that pops into your head when you think of summer nights? BUGS. Yuck. I learned a trick to help keep the mosquitoes away! Rub dryer sheets all over your clothes/body and keep one in your back pocket. It works just as well, if not better, than bug spray.
  • I cannot stress my love for dry shampoo enough. Use it at night before you go to sleep and you’ll literally feel the difference the next morning. It gives the shampoo time to absorb any sweat or oil left in your hair.
  • NEVER underestimate the power of deodorant!Chelsea Crockett - Waterproof Mascara Just because you put on a few swipes before your day doesn’t mean you don’t have to reapply. They have tons of different scents in the travel size for you to throw in your purse. Plus, it’s there if you forget to apply… which is a nightmare!
  • Waterproof makeup is a must during the summer if you’re going to be spending most of your days outside. Whether you’re swimming or just plain sweating, you’ll need some makeup that’ll stay on your skin!

Do you have any of your own tricks? Let me know :).

When I first think of Vaseline, I immediately think of dry skin.  I typically put it on my cracked lips or other dry areas that need some extra moisturizing.  Recently, I found out all the other amazing beauty hacks that Vaseline can do and needed to share them with you!  Life just got so much easier!Chelsea Crockett- Vaseline to remove lipstick

  • Rub a small amount of Vaseline on your eyelashes to condition them and even help them grow longer!
  • Dab a little on split ends for a quick hair treatment! Wash it right out with shampoo and conditioner.
  • If your lipstick seemed to stain your lips, rub some Vaseline on them and then wipe it off with a tissue. The color will come right off!
  • Before you spray your perfume, rub in a small amount of petroleum jelly on your skin where you typically apply it for a longer lasting scent.
  • Use it with cotton balls as makeup remover!
  • For a cream eye shadow effect, apply some Vaseline on your lid before applying your powder shadow.
  • Having trouble opening your nail polish? Rub some petroleum jelly at the bottom of the cap to screw it off easier!
  • If your brows won’t stay in place, comb some Vaseline through them to keep them tamed.
  • If you’re having trouble getting an earring in, rub a little Vaseline around the piercing hole so the earring will slide right in!

Who knew Vaseline had so many amazing uses!

XOXO,

Beauty hacks are every girl’s best friend. They can save us from even the slightest beauty mistakes and turn any mishap into a success.  You’d be surprised at all the tricks and tips there are in the beauty world!  In a few simple steps, you can learn multiple beauty hacks that will make your everyday routine easier and easier.Chelsea Crockett- lipstick on teeth

  • Do you love lipstick, but get nervous about getting it on your teeth? No problem! After applying your lipstick, stick your index finger in your mouth, wrap your lips around it, and slowly pull out your finger. This wipes the lipstick off from the inside out leaving it away from your teeth.
  • If you have an eye shadow that you love, but it’s too light or doesn’t stay on very well, try priming your eyelid with white eyeliner first. This creates a base for the eye shadow that makes it more vibrant and stays on longer!
  • Did you run out of your gel liner and are stuck with that gross pencil liner? Don’t worry! If you’ve got a lighter, then you’re in good shape. Just hold the tip of the pencil in the flame of the lighter for 15 seconds and let cool for another 15 seconds. The pencil will melt down and turn into a gel!

Next time you find yourself in a pickle, remember this quick and easy beauty hacks!

XOXO,

Chelsea

When I think of eyeliner, I typically picture myself using it to line my upper and lower lid.  Eyeliner is the perfect way to bring out your eyes, but did you know it has tons of other uses as well?!  Check out all these tricky eyeliner hacks to make your next makeup application a breeze.Chelsea Crockett- eyeliner smokey eye

  • If you have trouble applying liquid eyeliner, especially for a winged look, start by outlining it in pencil and going over the line with liquid. Use the pencil as a source of direction.
  • If you have a light colored eye shadow that doesn’t show up well, start by priming your eye lid with white eyeliner and then putting the shadow over it.
  • For an instant eye lift, put a line of white eyeliner under and above your eyebrow and blend it in. This will highlight your brows creating an illusion that they are lifted.
  • If your pencil liner is crumbly, put it in the freezer for 10 minutes for it to regain its shape.
  • Get the perfect smoky eye by drawing a hashtag on the outer part of your eyelid and blending it in.
  • For a more flattering look, try switching to brown instead of black eyeliner. Black can often make your face look harsh and drain the color from your skin.
  • By dusting nude colored eye shadow above and below your eye, your eyeliner will set better, thus making it last longer.

It’s crazy all the things a small tube of eyeliner can do! I hope this helped!

XOXO,

Chelsea

Everybody wants in on all things quicker and cheaper. Whether it’s easy beauty fixes or affordable DIY shorts, we want to hear it! I’ve discovered a few fashion hacks that work well and don’t empty your wallet!Chelsea Crockett - Closet Rack

  • Rub a pair of jeans on your shirt to get rid of deodorant stains. It’s definitely not the first thing you think of to get rid of stains! Make sure you use an older pair of jeans that won’t rub any color off on your shirt. It’s as simple as that!
  • We’ve all had that day where our moms ask us to get rid of any clothes we don’t wear anymore. Then we find ourselves frantically searching for any clothes to throw out! Here’s a tip: turn all of your hangers a certain way. Then, whenever you put something back in your closet, switch the hanger the opposite way. After a certain amount of time, you can see which clothes you’ve actually worn lately! Problem solved!
  • If you’ve ever sat on your bed untangling a necklace for half an hour, this tip’s for you! You’ll need to buy a box of tiny zip-lock bags and something to keep your jewelry in (jewelry box, sectioned container, etc.) Then, take each piece of jewelry and place them in a separate bag. You can organize the bags in several different ways such as by necklaces, bracelets, and earrings or by how casual to how dressy each piece is… however you think it will be easiest to keep organized!

Being a girl is hard, especially with all the boy problems, friend problems, and school problems going on in our lives. Apart from those, us girls also have to encounter many beauty problems that are such a hassle! Although there may not be easy fixes for other issues, there are many solutions to beauty problems that are simple, quick, and cheap!

  • If your eyeliner ever crumbles or cracks while putting it on, try freezing your eyeliner. It may sound dumb but after leaving it in the freezer for about 15-20 minutes before using, it’ll set perfectly on your eyelid.Chelsea Crockett - Loose Curls
  • If you want highlights or simply lighter hair, try using lemon juice instead of expensive dyes or salon prices. I suggest putting a little juice wherever you want it lighter and then staying outside in the sun for a few hours. The sun is the key for making this work!
  • Did you know toothpaste isn’t only for your teeth? You can actually use toothpaste to get rid of your pimples! Put a little dab of it on your acne, go to sleep, and wash it off with a warm washcloth in the morning. Make sure you use a paste and not a gel toothpaste.
  • Every girl wants the perfect beach wave to her hair. I know from experience that it’s not the easiest thing to accomplish! If you curl your hair into super tight curls and sleep on it, you’ll wake up with loose, beachy curls! Set in your waves with some hairspray and you are set!

I hope these help solve your next beauty crisis!
