Drugstore makeup doesn’t get enough credit for its quality.  Some of my all-time favorite makeup products come from stores like Walgreens, Target, etc.!  In 2016, there were some drugstore products that sold like crazy.  Here are the top 10 from last year!

  • Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Nail Polish ($5).  This stuff is a lifesaver!  Instead of waiting half an hour for your nail polish to dry, this polish dries 10x faster!
  • E.l.f. Poreless Face Primer ($6).  Chelsea Crockett - Wet N Wild LipstickE.l.f. is one of the most affordable brands out there.  Their Poreless Face Primer should be your go-to primer if you’re looking for the best bang for your buck!
  • NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream ($6).  If you’ve never tried out NYX’s matte products, I highly urge you to do so!  They’re my favorite brand to go to when I want the longest lasting and highest quality matte lips.
  • Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipstick ($1).  For only ONE dollar, this lipstick comes in lots of different shades with good quality, too!  The picture above shows only six of the several colors to choose from.  What’s a better steal than that?
  • Oil Absorbing Sheets ($5).  These sheets are great for all skin types whether you have oily skin or not.  You can use them to blot away excess oil or shine before or after you apply your makeup.   

If you like any of these products, let me know which is your favorite.  And if you haven’t tried them, give them a try in in 2017!

Mineral Foundation: What’s the Difference?

Mineral makeup may be something you’ve never heard of before, or it may be something you use every day!  I’ve never really known the difference between normal makeup and mineral makeup, but I came to find out that it actually has a lot of benefits, especially using mineral foundation on your skin.  Here’s a little insight on what mineral foundation is and which ones I recommend!Chelsea Crockett - NYX Mineral Foundation

Some foundations feel extremely heavy on your skin throughout the day.  Although you may only put a little on, it can feel like it’s caked on and clogging your pores!  Mineral foundation feels much lighter on your skin and lets your pores breathe a little more than normal formulas.  It’s known for making your skin feel soft and natural.  If you have sensitive skin, you might want to give it a try!  Most of these formulas leave out any unwanted ingredients such as chemical dyes, fragrances, etc.

As far as which mineral foundations are the best, there are a few I highly recommend!  NYX Cosmetic’s Stick Mineral Foundation is easy to apply since you don’t need a brush or beauty blender.  Plus, you can apply it anywhere at any time!  If you’re more into powders, L’Oréal Paris True Match Naturale Mineral Foundation gives you a smooth complexion along with SPF protection!

Do you use mineral makeup?  Let me know your take on it in the comments below!

At Beautycon last weekend, I got to take home a NYX beauty bag filled with tons of wonderful NYX products! One of which was the soft matte lip cream. I brought home not only one of these but around ten different colored creams! I wanted to give you a little review based off of my personal usage of it :).Chelsea Crockett - NYX Lip Cream

I was super excited to try out this product to see if it was all it claimed to be. I had tried matte lip creams before, some good and some not-so-good, so I was curious to see how this cream would compare to the rest. I gotta say, it was amazing! Only about 10-15 seconds after I applied it, the cream started to dry and looked perfect! There wasn’t any cracking or rubbing off, even after I licked my lips or took a drink. Even the pastel purple color covered all off my pink lips. The cream settled to a matte finish and was one of the only few matte creams to actually work the way it was supposed to!

NYX’s soft matte lip cream was definitely one you should try out for yourself! I promise, you won’t regret it :).

BeautyCon LA 2015

AH INSIDERS!! BeautyCon LA was absolutely dreamy and I can’t wait to tell you about it! I was so excited to get to hug so many of you in person!!…

AH INSIDERS!! BeautyCon LA was absolutely dreamy and I can’t wait to tell you about it! I was so excited to get to hug so many of you in person!! The smiles I saw made what I do so worth it!

The LA weekend started off with the Teen Vogue and Neutrogena party with a bunch of my beauty babes. We live all over the U.S., so getting to hang out with some of my fav YouTube friends is always a blast! I love soaking in every moment. The next morning I headed over to the AwesomenessTV Studios to discuss some secret projects *wink, wink*! Once the meetings were over, I got some time to soak in the Santa Monica sun with Lexi, Ana, Rachel, and my family! Now that the day was over, I was pretty excited to get to bed after a long day (who doesn’t love a nice and fluffy hotel bed?). Let’s just say sleeping was a little difficult with how excited I was. Next stop? BEAUTYCON!Chelsea Crockett- BeautyCon LA

Pulling up to BeautyCon gave me a rush of excitement! I couldn’t wait to get to my meet and greet to see you all. When I saw how many of you were lined up I couldn’t believe my eyes! You guys are incredible!! I wish I could’ve meet and talked to each and every one of you! Thank you for being the high light of my day! I also had a panel later in the day with Barbie! It was so fun to meet new faces, including Madison Pettis (like whaaaat?!), and I love hearing all the amazing girls talk about their journey! I was excited when my website got brought up at the panel. My team and I put so much work in it, which was so rewarding to talk about!

I could talk about my BeautyCon LA experience forever! If I had to sum up the weekend in two words it would be: THANK YOU! Thank you for watching my videos, thank you for lifting me up, and thank you for putting a smile on my face. I do it all for YOU! I love my Insiders and hope to see you next time I attend BeautyCon!

XOXO,

            Chelsea

Buy and Try videos are some of my favorite videos to do on my channel. I love picking out different products and giving feedback for you guys to try them out yourself! Since I loved several of the products I tried last month, why not elaborate on a few? Here are three of my faves!

  • Botanics Organic Rosewater Toning Spritz. This was heavenly! As I said in my video, it gave my skin a gorgeous glow without drying it out. It’s only around $10 depending on where you find it. It’s 100% worth the buy! This works great on sensitive skin, hints the organic part of the product! Instead of worrying about breaking out or developing a rash, you can enjoy your smooth and toned skin.
  • ScandalEyes Lycra Flex Mascara. This mascara is GOLDEN! I can safely say I used this pretty much every day! It doesn’t rub or smear at all and maximizes your lashes to their fullest potential. If you like a thicker formula, this product is the way to go. If you’re interested, click here!Chelsea Crockett - NYX Roll On Shimmer
  • NYX Roll On Eye Shimmer. I could not get enough of this! I particularly chose the nude shade, but there are several others you can pick from. If you’re more of a bright eyed kind of person, they have colorful shades like sea foam, light blue, pink, and lots of others! I use this almost every day to give my eyes a little bit of glimmer. Click here and try it out yourself!

What’s the first thing you notice when you see Kylie Jenner? Besides her gorgeous hair and perfect skin, her lips definitely stand out! If you follow her on Instagram, you’ll see that, in almost all of her pictures, she rocks a matte mauve color. There are several different ways and combinations to pull this off, but here are two of my favorites!

  1. NYX Cosmetics is one of my favorite brands to shop for makeup, whether it’s eyeliner, foundation, bronzer, and especially lipstick! They carry the perfect products to get the famous Jenner pout. Their Mauve Slim Lip Pencil is only $3.50 and adds the defined look to your lips that you want. Then, for only $6, you can purchase the Whipped Caviar Matte Lipstick for the flawless finish. If you want a glossier lipstick that doesn’t have exactly a “matte” finish, the Mauve Extra Creamy Round Lipstick works just as well!Chelsea Crockett - NYX Lipsticks
  2.  MAC Cosmetics is yet another brand that I love to get my products from! Along with NYX, they have an almost endless amount of lipstick colors to choose from. Since we’re going for the mauve look, I suggest the Midimauve Lipstick or the Faux Lipstick. On their website, you can check to see which color you think matches best with your skin tone that still gives off the look you’re going for. Highstrung, Fabby, and Plum Dandy are only a few of the many shades that are similar to the color you want. Just pick your favorite and finish it off with MAC’s Whirl Lip Pencil!

Now that you’ve got your dream celeb lips, find the perfect outfit and makeup to highlight them. Kylie’s look is absolutely perfect for fall! So… what are you waiting for?

Love, Chels

Bronzers are great for giving you that sun kissed look and beautiful glow.  How to get this is very easy and affordable!

Chelsea Crockett - BronzerAt only $9, NYX cosmetics carry a Matte Bronzer powder.  Known for how well it blends, this bronzer gives you a super natural look that still gives you the glow every girl wants.  It also comes in five different shades so you will be sure to find one that will match perfectly with your skin tone.  One way to make sure you don’t overcoat your bronzer is to focus on three spots: your forehead, cheekbones, and jaw line.  This way you can get full coverage without making your face look too tan for your body.  If you have extra sensitive skin, try using Clinique’s True Bronze Pressed Powder Bronzer.  This will guard your skin against unwanted breakouts or rashes and still give you the glow you want.  After applying, make sure you show off your sun kissed look!  That’s all there is to it!

Hello Insiders!

According to NYX professional makeup, wine-hued lips are one of falls hottest trends!  Taylor Swift made red lips come back to the forefront and now it looks like wine colored lips are in.  NYX makeup line offers many different finishes for your lips.

Soft matte lip cream comes in 14 different wine colored shades.  It’s not lipstick or lip gloss. Chelsea Crockett - NYX Matte Lipstick It’s a cream that is specially formatted for your lips.  It goes on silky smooth and sets to a matte finish.  It is extremely durable and moisturizing.  They also offer a matte lipstick that glides on smoothly and lasts with a matte finish.

Chelsea Crockett - NYX Jumbo Lip PencilNYX also offers a jumbo lip pencil.  It’s a lip liner and lipstick all in one.  It goes on really evenly.  It has a mineral oil formula so it won’t dry out your lips.  They offer twenty different nourishing wine colors.  It’s nice to outline and fill in with the same lip pencil!

Another fun option for your wine colored lips is NYX mood lip gloss.  Each color transforms into a different hue based on your mood!  How cool is that?  At first, the moisturizing formula appears as a clear, shiny gloss.  As time goes by, it develops into a rosy tint.  It is beautiful alone or over a lipstick.
So, Insiders, what are you waiting for? Get to your nearest NYX retailer and try out some of these fun looks!

Lots of love,

Chelsea

The beauty world is constantly coming out with new products.  There are so many to choose from!  Recently I’ve stumbled upon a few new products and I’m totally obsessing over them!  If you haven’t tried them yet, then it’s time to start!

I have never tried a NYX foundation that I didn’t like.  If you tend to have oily/acne prone skin like I do, the Stay Matte, Not Flat Powder Foundation is amazing!  It goes on evenly and covers up pesky zits.  It also dries up any oil so your face doesn’t look shiny.  After applying the foundation, add a little NYX blush and you’re all set!Chelsea Crockett- nyx stay matte not flat powder foundation

Another product I’m obsessed with right now is Secret Deodorant in “Paris”.  It stays on even after I workout, so I don’t have to worry about being smelly, and the scent is fresh and clean.  It also goes on clear, which is great when you’re wearing dark colors.  Beat the sweat with this powerful deodorant.  The last product that you need to try is the bareMinerals Volumizing Mascara.  The product goes on evenly and does not leave clumps in your eye lashes.  It also spreads out each lash and extends them for extra length and volume.

I hope you’ll get a chance to try all of these amazing products!  Clink the links below to purchase them; I promise you won’t be disappointed!

Love,

Chelsea

Winged Eyeliner Look

Hi Girls,

            Perfecting your eye liner can be a tricky task!  Between choosing the type of eye liner, the right color, and the right thickness, getting your eye liner right the first time is tough.  One of my favorite eye liner looks is a winged look.  It’s an old school look with a 50’s flare that can be dressed up or down.  It really makes your eyes and eyelashes pop!  I will give you the step by step to creating the most beautiful winged eye liner look.Chelsea Crockett- NYX The Curve

            Using a gel or liquid liner is the easiest to use, because it glides on smooth.  You’ll want to start with a fresh palette, so make sure there’s no makeup on your eyes!  Start by drawing your eye liner line from the outside in.  Begin at the end of your eyebrow, slowing moving towards the inner corners of your eye.  The end of your eyebrow is a good indication on how far out the “wing” should be.  Draw over this line multiple times until you get the thickness the way you like!  You can even draw over the wing part a few extra times for a more dramatic look.  Keep checking both eyes to make sure they are even.  Now, add you’re bottom eyeliner and eye shadow and you’re good to go!  I hope you enjoy this look as much as I do!

Love,

            Chelsea
