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!

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?

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
