I hate when I spend half an hour doing my makeup only to be disappointed with how it turns out.  Whenever this happens, it’s usually because my face looks too dark or too dull.  I found a guide on Pinterest that helps me take any dull look and transform it into a bright, glowing face of makeup!

  • Inner corners of eyeChelsea Crockett - Bright Makeups.  Making your eyes brighter is the key to making your entire face appear brighter.  Lightening around your eyes, especially around the inner corners, will not only make your eyes pop but make you look more radiant than before!
  • On top of cheekbones.  You have to make sure you lighten your cheekbones because they cover such a huge area of your face.  Use a light highlighter that will make your cheekbones pop but leave you with that natural look, as well.
  • On top of nose.  Since your nose is the most central part of your face, you can’t forget about brightening that area, too.  Take your highlighter and apply it lightly to the bridge and tip of your nose to give it a little pop! 
  • Center of lips.  You may not have heard of this before, but adding a little white shimmer to the center of your lips can make them appear bigger and obviously brighter!  Try it out for yourself!

Try out these steps and let me know if your makeup look does a total 180 like mine does after following this guide! 🙂

Contouring is the biggest fad in the makeup industry right now!  Basically, it’s highlighting and bronzing key parts of your face to either make them stand out or be covered up.  It’s a great way to make your face look flawless.  While contouring can make you look radiant, knowing how to do it is key.  It can look quite “clown-like” if done incorrectly.  Check out how to contour the most important features of your face! Chelsea Crockett- contouring cheek bones

What you’ll need:

Contouring palette (light and dark)

Light eye shadow

Beauty Blender

Nose: For the effect of a slimmed down nose, place the dark color along the outside bridges of your nose and the light color along the top.

Cheek bones:   For the look of super-model high cheek bones, suck in your cheeks and apply the dark color into the sunken in area.  Add the lighter color to the cheek bones themselves. 

Eyes:  To make your eyes pop, apply a light, shimmery eye shadow to the entire lid and the dark color along the bone above the lid. 

The most important part of contouring comes last: blending.  When applying the light and dark colors, just put a stripe across each area.  Then, blend both colors together so no lines are visible.  The result?  A picture perfect face!

Enjoy experimenting with makeup!
