In the winter time is when I wear the most lipstick. I like how dark reds and maroon lips look paired with a stylish winter ensemble. Plus, I go to a lot more parties and gatherings because of the holidays so I dress up more in the winter, which means I wear lipstick more often. If you want to get the prettiest pucker, follow these lipstick rules!

  1. Get off to a good start: Before you apply lipstick, exfoliate the dead skin off of your lips with a damp washcloth. This gets your lips prepped and ready for appication!download (2)
  2. Know your stuff: You should also know what lipstick formula works best for you! Matte formulas last long, but they also dry your lips out a bit. Creamy formulas hydrate your lips, but they arent long-lasting. Experiment with different ones and find which one works best for you!
  3. Go bold: If you want your lip color to be bold, line your lips with a lip pencil before applying lipstick.
  4. Be wise about blotting: Blot your lips with a tissue in between applications by gently pressing a tissue to your lips. Just don’t put a tissue in between your lips and close down on it because this may cause the color to rub off.
  5. Top it off: Top your lipstick off with some gloss. The shine helps your lips look plumper.

Follow these rules to get the perfect pout!

XOXO, Chels

How to Touch Up With What’s In Your Purse

After a long day of school, work, or running errands, it’s easy for our makeup to fade and look a little messy.  If you have something important to be at after a long day, a quick touch-up is just what you need!  So what do you do if you don’t have your makeup bag on you?  No problem!  Here’s your 101 guide to touching up your makeup with what’s in your purse.Chelsea Crockett- mascara under eye

Getting rid of excess oil built up throughout the day is the first thing you must do in order to touch up correctly.  Blotting paper works best for this, but you can use a tissue instead.  Pat the tissue throughout your T-zone until you feel your skin becoming dryer.  Next, remove mascara and/or eyeliner that has gotten under your eye.  It’s easy for mascara to rub off on your under eyes from constant blinking.  Use the tissue again to wipe this off.  If you’ve got concealer on you, then touch up under your eyes and any blemishes you wish to cover up.  If not, turn the attention elsewhere.  Throw on a bright colored lip gloss or lipstick to make your lips the focus on your face…not that pesky zit!

All of this can be done in less than 5 minutes and is a quick way to refresh your makeup…without your makeup bag!

XOXO,

Chelsea

Summer is all about the laid back lifestyle: not a care in the world, beach wave hair, and minimal makeup.  Once your skin gets tanner, it’s easier to leave out your foundation!  Try this minimal makeup look with 3 simple products: blush, mascara, and lip gloss.Chelsea Crockett- lip gloss mascara blush

Have you ever wanted that California lifestyle makeup look?  Well, I’ve got it for you!  In Cali, it’s all about letting your natural beauty shine through.  Since your skin will already be tan, there is no need for bronzer!  Try dusting a light pink blush on your cheek bones to give your face a little color!  Next, apply black mascara to your lashes to make your eyes pop!  In this case, eye shadow and eyeliner are not needed.  It would over power the look.  Last, pick out your favorite shade of lip gloss and apply it to your lips.

If you’re all about makeup, I challenge you to try this look.  Although it’ll be different, show everyone how naturally beautiful you are!  Remember, everyone is beautiful!

I love you all!

Turn Crystal Light into Lipgloss!

How many of you love drinking Crystal Light? It can be quite a tasty beverage! But, I bet you didn’t know that you can make this sweet drink into lip gloss! Now before you go and call me crazy, read on and find out how! The whole process takes a total of two minutes! I found this tutorial on loveumadly.com

Materials:

–          Crystal Light packets, preferably flavors with red and pink colors.lip-gloss-41-1024x680

–          Vaseline

–          A small, portable container

–          A mixing tool (such as a plastic knife)

Fill your small empty container with your Vaseline. Add the Crystal Light and keep adding and stirring until you have the color you want. Wait an hour for the Crystal Light granules to dissolve so you don’t have gritty lip gloss. After the granules have dissolved, slap some on those lips! You just made your very own, super tasty, lip gloss! Pat yourself on the back and pucker up!

XOXO, Chels

Makeup Faceoff!

Hi Insiders,

            Have you ever had trouble picking the perfect makeup?  Since there’s so many different types and formulas, putting together the perfect makeup bag can be tough.  So how exactly do you choose which type of makeup for your face, eyes, and lips?  It’s time to investigate with a makeup faceoff!

Liquid Foundation vs. Powder Foundation

            Liquid and powder foundation serve the same purpose, but are completely different.  If you have oily skin and need minimum coverage, then go for the powder.  Powder foundation will soak up oil creating a more matte finish.  If you have dry skin and some blemishes that need extra coverage, then definitely go for the liquid foundation.  Since liquid tends to be thicker, it will cover even the worst acne and hydrate dry skin.  Make sure to blend it in well, so it doesn’t look too thick.

Liquid Eye Liner vs. Pencil Eye Liner

            Liquid and pencil liner are a close call!  They both get the job done.  If you prefer to wear only bottom eye liner or like a softer look, then aim for pencil.  It doesn’t go on as thick and looks more natural.  If you love a cat eye or a bold eye liner, then liquid is the way to go.  It goes on smooth and clean.  It’s a great idea to have both on hand! Chelsea Crockett- nyx the curve

Lip Stick vs. Lip Gloss

            Every girl needs both lip stick and lip gloss in their makeup bag and purse!  Lip stick is more formal and bold, while lip gloss can be worn 24/7.  If you want long-lasting wear, then go for a bright lip stick to get you through the day/night.

            Picking the right makeup is very important!  Look your best and feel your best with your best makeup yet.
