Concealer is one of the best beauty tools in the world.  You can hide your tiredness by disguising dark circles or conceal stubborn pimples that won’t go away.  It color corrects, brightens, and evens out your skin to give you the perfect foundation for a beautiful face of makeup.  With that being said, we should know what we’re doing wrong with our concealer to guarantee that we’re making the most out of our product! 

  1. Rubbing in your concealer with your finger.Chelsea Crockett - Naked Concealer  It may be gross to think about, but our fingers are covered in dirt, oil, and lots of bacteria.  Our fingers also don’t absorb any of our concealer like a beauty blender would which leaves it feeling caked on.  A beauty blender will blend it evenly and leave you without creases or streaks!
  2. Using the same concealer for all your blemishes, dark circles, etc.  Although this isn’t necessarily the wrong way of doing it, you can get much better coverage by using differently textured concealers.  For dark circles, try using a thicker concealer such as a cream based one.  As for pimples, try using a light, liquid concealer!  
  3. Applying your concealer first as your base.  Although you may be anxious to cover up those zits as soon as you wake up, you won’t get your best coverage by starting with concealer.  Apply your foundation first, then apply your concealer!

What mistake are you making?  Now you know what to change when it comes to applying concealer!

For those of you that hate powder foundations, liquid is the only way to get the job done!  Sometimes it can be hard to find the right product that won’t sweat off after an hour or suffocate your skin.  All three of these liquid foundations are great for all skin types and are definitely worth the buy!

  • Clinique’s Superbalanced Silk Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15.  This is one of my favorite liquid foundations, especially if you have sensitive skin.  There are over 15 different shades to match whatever your skin tone may be!  It’s silk-enriched leaving a smooth, balanced base on your skin.  It also controls oil and hydrates the dry areas of your face!  It’s a win-win product. 🙂 Chelsea Crockett - Clinique Foundation
  • IT Cosmetics’ Your Skin But Better CC+ Illumination with SPF 50+.  If you’re looking for a light formula with good quality, then look no more!  This CC+ Cream gives you full coverage with a radiant afterglow, too.  It’s also guaranteed to camouflage any imperfections such as acne or dark spots! 
  • Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup.  If you’re willing to spend $40 on foundation, I suggest you spend it on this product!  There are over 30 different shades so you’ll be sure to find one that matches your skin tone perfectly.  It stays on for up to 15 hours so you won’t have to worry about reapplying throughout the day!  

Have you tried any of these before?  If so, give me your take on them in the comment section below!

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!

Liquid Eyeliner vs. Pencil Eyeliner

Hey Girls,

            Do you ever have trouble applying eyeliner?  Even beauty gurus like I do!  It can be a tricky task.  Liquid eyeliner and pencil eyeliner may not seem too different, but they are!  Finding your perfect eyeliner can make all the difference.  It can make doing your eye makeup hassle free.  Educating Chelsea Crockett- liquid eyelineryourself on different types of makeup is very important.  I will give you all you need to know about these two different eye liners so you can find your perfect match!

            Liquid eyeliner:  There are pros and cons to each type of liner.  Liquid liner lasts a lot longer than pencil eyeliner.  It is usually water proof and gives a more dramatic look.  It is great for days when you’ll be near water or for that “going out” look.  The downside to liquid liner is that it is harder to apply.  If your hand is shaky, it will show!  It just takes practice.  You also have to be careful not to apply too much.  Some people tend to overdo it with liquid liner.

            Pencil eyeliner:  Pencil eyeliner is typically what most people use.  It creates more of an everyday look and never dries out.  It lasts much longer than liquid liner does.  If you find the right pencil, it will glide on easy.  Pencil liner is usually easier to apply.  Pencil liner does not create a very defined look and can smudge easy.  Rubbing your eyes is not an option!  Taking all of this into consideration, you should be able to find your perfect liner.  Do you like bold defined, and long lasting, or simple and casual?  Take your pick!Chelsea Crockett- pencil eyeliner
