With summer in full swing, we can all expect a new wave of trends coming in!  Whether those be shoe trends, shirt trends, makeup trends, etc., you’ll have to get up-to-date with what trends will be “in” this season.  Here are a few makeup trends to look out for in summer 2017 so you can have the trendiest look in town!

  • Sunset eyes.  Soft reds, oranges, and yellows make for the perfect sunset eyeshadow look! Chelsea Crockett - Sunset Eyeshadow There are tons of different tutorials and ways to achieve this look.  You can go above and beyond or do a simple blended look!
  • Clean/no makeup look.  You can never go wrong with the natural look, especially this summer!  Light blush, thin eyeliner, nude lips, etc. are all something to try out this season.
  • Blue.  Too much blue can sometimes be too over-the-top, but it’s “in” this summer.  Light blue eyeshadow or even blue lips can make your makeup pop!
  • Soft colors/pastels.  I’ve always been a fan of pastels, and this summer they’re going to be super popular.  This could include pastel cheeks, lips, eyes, anything!
  • White accents.  White accented eyes are the perfect way to make your eyes pop.  Adding lighter shades around the inner corners of your eyes and your waterline will make your eyes appear bigger and brighter.

Which trendy makeup look are you going to try out this summer?  Let me know in the comment section below!  I’m hoping to try them all out myself! 🙂

When I first started out using makeup, I didn’t really have a clue what I was doing!  But over the years, I’d like to think I’ve gotten pretty comfortable with creating all the different beauty and makeup trends on my own skin.  Eyeshadow trends can sometimes be the hardest to pull off without knowing where to put each shade.  Chelsea Crockett - Eye MakeupThis guide helped me master eyeshadow and know the best way to accent my eyes!

  • Brow bone/Highlight.  As far as your brow bone goes, focus on highlighting it.  This will give your eyes the pop they need!
  • Crease.  To add some dimension to your eyes, add a darker shade to your crease.  Once again, this will make them pop!
  • Lid.  This is where your base color will go.  I suggest a neutral shade that will be a good foundation for your other darker tones!
  • Outer V.  If you’re a fan of the “cat eye” eyeliner look, then this part of your lid will practically be covered anyways.  But if you’re not big on eyeliner, then apply a darker shade to your outer v.  If you want a softer look, blend with a blending brush for a less sharp effect.
  • Lower Lash Line.  Once again, if you’re an eyeliner type of girl, then this part of your eye will most likely already be covered!  But if you want a little more definition, add a darker, neutral shadow to your lash line. 
  • Tear duct.  To add a little glow to your eyes, apply a shimmery or light colored eyeshadow.  This will make your eyes sparkle! 

I hope this helps you just as much as it helped me!

New Year’s Eve is the one holiday you can go above and beyond with your makeup.  You can rock as much sparkle and glitter as you want since you’ll be ringing in the new year all night long!  In case you wanted to try something new this holiday, here are 3 makeup looks that are perfect for the night ahead!

Gold – If you want your look to focus more on gold tones, try out a look like the one on the right!  Chelsea Crockett - NYE MakeupDoing a smoky eye with brown shades will create the perfect base to add some gold sparkle.  Fill in your eyebrows and add a maroon lip to seal the deal!

Silver – If your outfit calls for a silver makeup look, focus on black and grey tones.  Since theses shades are darker, I suggest using black only on the outer parts of your lid.  You don’t want to use too many dark shades especially if you normally don’t wear a lot of eyeshadow.  Add a shimmer silver shade over your base.  (You can even add some blue tones to compliment the grey!)

Nude – Maybe you’re not into all of the sparkle and glitter and want to keep it a little simpler.  Pick a couple eye shadows that are more matte rather than shimmer.  You can do a light smoky eye paired with a matte lipstick!  Keep it simple but still complimenting your outfit. 

I hope this completes your look for this New Year’s Eve!

XOXO – Chelsea

Born in the land down under, Quay Australia has been manufacturing sunglasses since 2004. They started roadside on the festival circuit only to windup selling their line of sunglasses internationally in 2009. Their brand has spread throughout the world and all of social media. Even celebs have been spotted rocking their shades!

Quay Australia is not like other brands of sunglasses. They offer tons of unique styles that aren’t like the classic looks such as aviators or wayfarers (although they do offer those as well!). Chelsea Crockett - Quay SunglassesA handful of celebrities have been seen wearing them including Shay Mitchell, Gigi Hadid, and Cara Delevingne! The shades and even the rims themselves come in different colors and patterns.

One of the most popular styles is called “my girl.” Even in this single style they offer four different color combos! The girl on the left is wearing them in the black/pink combo. They also have black/blue, clear/silver, and brown with speckled rims.

Another popular style is called “muse.” If you like simple and the aviator look, then you’ll love these! They also come in four different color combos as well. If you like more of a unique look, Quay offers tons of these too! Most pairs are around $60 which isn’t a bad deal when you compare their prices to other brands.

Especially since summer is in full swing, I urge you to buy a pair for days in the sun! 🙂

Love, Chels

What’s the number one must-have accessory for summer? A rockin’ pair of shades… DUH!  Every girl needs a great pair of fun and stylish sunglasses.  Here’s a look Chelsea Crockett - Sunglassesat the latest trends for sunglasses for 2015.  Aviators and Wayfarers are always popular…you can never go wrong with them.  However, this season’s frames are taking on a more geometric frame with muted colors.  Don’t be afraid to super-size them!

If you are in the mood to be bold, colorful frames with ombré hues are also trendy this summer.  Feel free to give them a go if you dare :).  Another look making a comeback is retro styles that are chic and glamorous from the 60’s and 70’s.  Pair them with a fresh, cool outfit and you’ll love your new look.

Lastly, white framed sunglasses are stunning and classic.  You can’t go wrong with cat eye, oval, or square frames paired with a sporty white dress.  White frames were adorned by many of the designers during fashion week.  Therefore, you can’t go wrong with white!

XOXO, Chels

How to Mix Light and Dark Outfit Shades

We all know that black and white are the chicest of all color combos.  It’s the ultimate mix between light and dark shades and will never go out of style!  Some color combinations can be tricky and look misplaced if not paired with the right color!  It’s important to contrast correctly and when done right…it looks amazing!Chelsea Crockett- emerald green and tan outfit

Pastel shades are absolutely perfect for the upcoming spring season, but wearing too many light colors can wash a person out (especially since bronzed summer skin hasn’t arrived yet).  Pastel blue and pink look amazing paired with a dark charcoal grey!  Try dark grey skinny’s with a pastel sweater, blouse, or jacket!

Another one of my favorite color combos are emerald green and light tan/cream.  The green will bring out more brownish tone of the tan, while still keeping it subtle.  It’s a great way to wear a bold color without going overboard!  Try this with dark teal and heather grey as well!

Don’t be afraid to mix light and dark colors.  It can be done during any season and always looks high fashion!

XOXO,

Chelsea

The Best Lipstick Shades This Winter!

Winter is a time when most people’s complexion tends to be lighter.  We spend less time in the sun and more time indoors, therefore the sun hardly reaches our skin.  Lipstick can be a scary thing to try when you’re feeling pale and many colors can wash you out easily.  It’s important to find the perfect winter shade for any occasion.Chelsea Crockett- dark winter lipstick

It’s officially time to put your hot pinks and corals to the side.  Winter is the time to break out deep reds and plum purples.  If you’re aiming for a bold look, try one of these colors with a smoky eye to balance out your face.  In contrast, icy colors such as a cool nude or light pink are also acceptable for a more laid back approach.  Pair this with a shimmery eye and thin eyeliner.  It’s so important to keep a good balance throughout your whole face.  You don’t want one half to be too overdone.  The most important rule when picking a winter color is to avoid warm oranges and hot pinks.  They scream summer!  Don’t get your seasons confused!

Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and rock a maroon lipstick.  It will look beautiful!

XOXO,

Chelsea

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!

Bright Summer Lips!

Your smile is one of the first things someone notices about you.  Whether it’s your white teeth or your bright red lipstick, your mouth draws attention from the moment you first meet someone.  That being said, summer is a time for colorful outfits and bright lipsticks such as the ones below!

You may think that lips only look good in pinks and reds, but another trendy color is orange.  One of the best ways to pull this off would be throwing on a white dress and an orange chunky necklace.  Then, put on some orange lipstick to tie the look together.  I definitely suggest orange for those with lighter hair such as a light brown or dirty blonde.

Although pinks and reds are super traditional, they are still extremely popular and seem timeless!  Hot pink and neon red look good with almost any outfit.  Lucy Hale is a perfect example of someone who can pull off both the red and hot pink lips.  The shades look flawless with her dark hair and pale skin.  Taylor Swift is also one who is iconic for red lipstick.  It’s elegant and classy and goes well with neutral colors.  As you can see below, Lucy and Taylor know how to pull off bright pink and red lips!Chelsea Crockett - Taylor Swift and Lucy Hale

So… next time you get dressed up, don’t be afraid to make your look pop with some bright, summer lips!

XOXO – Chels

How to Make Your Eyes Pop

          Hi girls!  One of the most attention-catching parts of your face is your beautiful eyes.  From blue to brown to hazel, your eyes can always sparkle if you know the right colors and shades to use. 

          For the baby blues out there, use navy or grey shades of eyeliner to highlight your eyes.  Those colors allow your eyes to reflect off the eyeliner and show off the blue hue in your eyes.  As far as brown eyes go, try out dark brown or black eyeliner which will bring a fiercer feel to them.  Try to remember to outline the eyes but not to go to thick and dark with black eyeliner.  And of course I couldn’t forget about the green/hazel eyes.  For you, try light brown or green colored eyeliner.  This will bring out the brown or green in your sparkling hazel eyes.Chelsea Crockett - Eyes

          To add an even more defined look, curl your lashes with an eyelash curler.  This will give them a little extra lift before adding on your favorite mascara.  Concealer is another product to use slightly below your eyes.  Getting rid of those dark circles will help others focus on your eye color and pop!  Hope this helps!
