Lauren Conrad is one of the biggest fashion bloggers of our time.  She’s an icon in all things fashion and beauty!  If you don’t know who she is, you may recognize her from the shows Laguna Beach and The Hills.  She has certain style secrets that she swears by that I think we can all learn a little from!

  • Keep things simple!  You don’t have to go above and beyond to make a fashion statement.Chelsea Crockett - Lauren Conrad  Keeping things sleek and classy isn’t a bad thing. (That being said, your style is how you want to dress so if keeping it simple isn’t your thing, then you do you!) 
  • Try rocking winged eyeliner.  I was always a little hesitant with winged eyeliner but now I love it!  Trying out a little wing doesn’t hurt!
  • Skinny jeans and loose blouses.  Like the picture on the right, Lauren always rocks a simple pair of jeans and a loose shirt.  Pairing it with simple accessories and a killer pair of wedges seals the look!
  • Rock a blazer.  Blazers can make an outfit go from boring to fashionable.  It’s definitely a staple piece, so if you don’t own one you should!
  • Mix style with comfort.  If you’re not comfortable in your outfit, then what’s the point?  Buy yourself a super comfy pair of jeans or a pair of wedges that fit just right.

Try these tips out from the style queen herself!

Supermodels are known for their image.  Whether it be their silky hair or “perfect” teeth, there are certain things that everyone thinks of when they hear the word “model.”  One of the first characteristics that pops into my head is their extremely clear skin!  A few models have opened up to share their simple, everyday skincare tips that you can use to your benefit!Chelsea Crockett - Gigi Hadid Skin

  • It is absolutely necessary to have a daily skincare routine set in place! Your routine should include washing your face when you wake up and before you go to sleep at night.  Hold yourself to it!
  • Focus just as much on what goes in your body as to what goes on it. Watch your diet!  You don’t need to solely restrict your diet to healthy food, but monitoring the amount of junk you have every day doesn’t hurt!  Cutting down on foods high in fat and drinking lots of water will help more than you think.
  • Secret beauty tip: steam. Exposing yourself to steam such as a sauna, DIY steam facial etc., will help open up your pores.  They can get very clogged after days and days of wearing makeup even though you wash your face.
  • Don’t underestimate the power of toothpaste. Everyone knows the trick to get rid of pimples quickly.  Apply toothpaste to your pimple to dry it out and reduce inflammation!

Try these out and watch your skin change for the better!

Gigi Hadid: an upcoming international supermodel that just so happens to be an inspiration to many girls around the globe! Not only is she gorgeous but she has an awesome personality… and an awesome fashion sense! Her makeup and hair are always spot on, so how does she do it? Gigi’s biggest beauty secrets are finally revealed!

  • Gigi always keeps a fresh face. She says she always goes for the natural look with a little bit of contour (like the picture below!). This way her skin looks flawless but not caked on with makeup, yet the contour allows her face to look like she still has a little makeup on.Chelsea Crockett - Gigi Hadid
  • The more Gigi washes her face or removes her makeup, the more her skin needs to be moisturized. She says to make sure you keep your skin hydrated. This allows your makeup to set better.
  • This isn’t the first time I’ve heard of this genius beauty tip. Gigi said her mother always tells her to apply toothpaste when she gets a pimple. And it totally works!

Gigi is absolutely gorgeous and I wouldn’t think twice about following her beauty tricks :)!

Selena Gomez is not only an actress and singer but a fashion icon to girls around the world! How she manages to look perfect 24/7 makes me wonder how she does it. I found some fashion and beauty tips that reveal a few of her secrets and advice that we can all try out for ourselves!Chelsea Crockett - Selena Gomez Red Carpet

When it comes to accessorizing, Selena always says that less is more! Wearing a simple necklace, a studded bracelet, and a clutch might be all she rocks with her dress on a red carpet. I think we all can learn a little bit from this! If you’re wearing an outfit that already has a lot going on, don’t overdo it with blinged out accessories.

Since she goes by the “less is more” motto, Selena always keeps a natural, fresh face no matter where she goes. I try to do the same! Caking on makeup is never a good idea, especially when it comes to your skin. Keeping your face cleansed and moisturized will help unclog your pores and have a good foundation for when you apply your makeup!

When it comes to style, Selena isn’t one for going all out or overdoing it. Sometimes her go-to outfit is simply a tee, boyfriend jeans, and a solid colored scarf with boots. Keeping a neutral, simple style is hard to do in Hollywood, but she makes it look easy!

Although Selena might like toning down her outfits, style is really all about expressing yourself! She also says to feel free to be yourself and not care what other people think. She’s definitely a role model and beauty icon to look up to!

Love, Chelsea

Tips for Gel Nail Polish

If now isn’t a better time to try out gel nails, I don’t know when is! Gel nail polish is extremely popular right now and healthier for your nails than acrylics. You can get them done at almost any nail salon or you can even do them at home yourself! Here are some tips to get salon nails at home!

Chelsea Crockett - Gel Nail Polish KitFirst off, you will have to purchase a gel nail starter kit. You can find one at Sephora, Ulta, or on Amazon (If you want to explore some, click here!). They can be pricey, so putting it on the top of your Christmas wish list isn’t a bad idea! After you have your kit, the directions will let you know the next step… But getting the salon finish isn’t hard with a little advice.

For each of your polish coats, here are a couple secrets to keep them long-lasting. First, make sure your cuticles aren’t overgrown. Second, make sure you keep the polish from touching your skin. Both of these secrets will prevent your polish from peeling off within the first few days. Another tip that may or may not be obvious is to keep your nails clipped. If your nails are brittle and overgrown, they’re more likely to break off along with your polish!

So… what’s a better thing to be listed on the top of your Christmas wish list?

Enjoy! – Chelsea

Girls, we all agree our lives get tough sometimes.  Between bad hair days and smeared mascara, we have seen it all!  Here are a few “under the radar” beauty tips that most girls don’t know about!

If you are one of those people that prefer morning showers than night, I’m going to guess you have had that 20 second blow dry that doesn’t quite do the trick.  I suggest setting apart three minutes of your morning and dry the necessary parts of your hair: the front and top.  If you can settle down the fizziness around your scalp and the outline of your face, you will look 100x more finished then those “20 second blow dry” days!

Chelsea Crockett - Plump LipsPlump lips are the dream of any girl, and I know just the secret to getting them.  Before adding your favorite lip gloss, add a little dab of white eye shadow in the crease above your upper lip.  Sounds a little weird, I know, but this tip actually works!  Try it out for yourself!

Dry skin is another struggle we all go through.  There is nothing better than a warm shower, I totally understand, but don’t be afraid to take a cool shower every once and a while!  When we take hot showers, we instantly get out into the cold air of our bathroom which leads to dry skin.  Don’t forget to apply your favorite lotion afterwards :)!

Hope these tips help you lovely ladies out! – Chels

Secrets for Making Thin Hair Look Thicker!

Some people are naturally born with beautiful, thick, luscious hair… others aren’t as lucky. Although thin hair is at times both a blessing and a curse, making it look thicker than it actually is, is tougher than it looks. I’ve learned a few tricks and tips that’ll help you thicken your hair without hundreds of pricey products or remedies!

Chelsea Crockett - LayersFirst things first, make sure you’re using the right shampoos and conditioners. Avoid conditioners that say “hydrating” or similar things that will lead to actually flattening your hair instead of helping it. Volumizing products can really make a difference when it comes to expanding the look of your locks.

Apart from products, next time you’re at your hair salon ask your hairdresser to put in layers like the picture on the left. Sometimes adding variety to your hair gives off a lusher look than before. Also, if you’re struggling with your thin look in the mornings, try teasing your hair just enough to add a little height to it. It’s not hard and only takes a few seconds!

Another tip to try out is blow drying your hair upside down and avoiding brushing it. Keeping your hair as high as possible without flattening it down is the way to go with thin hair. Also, when it comes to styling your hair, try curling instead of straightening. Like I said before, volume is always the way to go!

Let me know any secrets you have for helping thin hair below!

Love, Chelsea

Apple Beauty Remedies!

It’s apple picking time here in the Midwest.  I love to go out with my family to the local orchards, get on a wagon, and pick some apples!  Believe it or not, apples aren’t just for eating.  There are actually quite a few beauty remedies that apples can be used for. Since they’re in season, I’d thought it would be fun to share a few ideas with you. Chelsea Crockett - Apples

Apples are a natural beauty product.  They can work wonders on your complexion by treating acne.  One easy mask to make is an apple and honey mask.  You can make this by grating half an apple and mixing it with four teaspoons of honey.  Then, apply it to affected acne skin, leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes, and rinse off with warm water.  This should leave a natural glow and radiance to your skin!  It can also be used to prevent pimples and other imperfections!

Apples can also be used as a natural facial cleanser.  The natural acid helps to remove excess oil from the skin and leave an instant shine and glow to the face.  An apple, milk, and honey cleanser can be made by measuring one tablespoon of fresh apple juice, two tablespoons of milk, and one teaspoon of honey.  Mix these ingredients together thoroughly and apply to your face and neck.  Massage for two minutes and then rinse off with warm water.

Your skin will be soft and glowing! If you have any apple beauty remedies, please be sure to share below :)!

Enjoy, Chels

Beauty and fashion trends are always started from a popular celebrity showing off their look to anyone and everyone who sees it. For example, most of my fashion inspiration comes from Lauren Conrad! Celebrities are great at influencing young teens with different beauty trends or advice. Here are a few beauty tips from some of the biggest stars in Hollywood!

We can all agree that Beyoncé Knowles has some of the clearest and prettiest skin ever. She suggests always using a good skin moisturizer. She also says that a girl is most beautiful when she smiles, which boosts both happiness and beauty. Olay has great moisturizers that contain SPF and hydrate your skin (to check them out, click here!). If you go to a dermatologist, they often sell products that are perfect for your skin!  Also, don’t forget to drink water.  Water is the secret to clear skin and bright, white teeth!

Chelsea Crockett - Miranda  KerrMiranda Kerr, a widely known model, uses clear lip balm to highlight around her eyes. As long as you find a natural balm that won’t clog up your pores or leave too much of a thick residue on your skin, then consider using this tip more often! By adding the lip balm to the inner corners of your eyes, it lightens up the areas around them.  Try it out!

Jessica Alba is absolutely gorgeous, and she has a few secrets for highlighting her features! Her eyelash curler is her best friend and should be yours, too :)! If you think it doesn’t do anything for your lashes, try quickly blow drying the curler to heat it. Then, try curling your eyelashes and applying mascara after. They’ll look 10x better, I promise!

Good luck! – Chels

            Hey insiders!  Every girl wants to know how to get their hair soft, shiny, and most importantly, healthy.  With endless treatments of various shampoos and gels, it gets frustrating trying to find successful ways to treat your hair.  What girls don’t look for are the things you can do at home without expensive products.  Here are a few secrets to getting those healthy locks.Chelsea Crockett - Hair

            First, condition your ends each time your hair is damp or wet even if you don’t shampoo it each time you’re in the shower.  This helps with tangles and also keeps your hair moisturized.  I hate when my hair feels dried out, so this tip definitely solves the problem.

            Second, let your hair flow every once and a while.  Pulling back your hair on a daily basis creates damage and causes your strands to break.  If you’re the kind of person who relies on up-dos, try pinning your hair up with clips or pins.  Avoiding elastic bands will decrease the breakage in your hair.

            Lastly, monitor the amount of heat applied on your hair.  Too much of anything can be bad so avoid straightening or curling your hair every day.  Try putting it into a simple braid or, if you can, leave it natural.

            Along with these, there are many more secrets to discover in order to receive healthy, beautiful hair.  I hoped this helped and good luck!
