Contouring is a difficult process that I’m still learning to perfect myself. One side is always too dark, too light, too whatever, and it’s hard to master the process! Chelsea Crockett - Smashbox TrioSmashbox has come out with a much easier way to successfully contour… So, for those of you that want a quick and easy process, follow this three step guide.

To start out, you’ll need to purchase Smashbox’s Step-by-Step Contour Stick Trio pictured on the left. This product includes three different makeup sticks: the contour, the highlighter, and the bronzer. The main focus of this trio is to shape and define your jawline, nose, and of course, cheekbones. The contour stick adds the shaping feature to your face while the highlight stick brings brightness to the area. Chelsea Crockett - ContourThe bronzer works to blend the two together to create the perfect blended contour!

Once you’ve bought the set, you’re ready to begin! Depending on your skin tone and face structure, you’ll have to play around with where and how much you’ll apply to your skin. Add the contour stick to the areas shown on the picture to the right. Then apply the highlight stick to the areas above the cheekbones. Finish by blending the two together with the bronze stick!

Smashbox considers this trio one of their favorites because it “mimics perfect lighting.” So… what are you waiting for?!

I recently received an awesome little gift box in the mail from Smashbox, one of my favorite cosmetics brands! It was their holiday collection called Art. Love. Color. in which they collaborated with artist Yago Hortal to create a vibrant, inspiring collection. I received the studio set with several products that I wanted to give you a little review and inside on!Chelsea Crockett - Smashbox Holiday Collection

When I opened the box, there were two containers with different products in each. In the first container, I received five products: the Full Exposure Mascara, the Be Legendary Lipstick in Primrose, two Photo Op Eye Shadow Trios titled Callback and Spectral, and the Be Legendary Lip Gloss in Disco Rose. The second little box came with three different priming products: the Photo Finish Foundation Primer, the Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer, and the Layer Lash Primer.

Of course I could go into each product one-by-one, but I’d rather tell you about my favorites! First off, I LOVE the mascara. The brush makes my lashes look extra full and long. It applies easily and slides right off at the end of the day. I’m also loving the Be Legendary lipstick. It’s shade is a darker pink that looks great for fall. You can even apply the lip gloss over it for a glossier look! The rest of the products in the studio set are just as good. Check it out!

Face primers can be hard to find. Some leave an oily residue and others dry out your skin! I’ve been through several products that have done just that, but luckily I have found a few that work well with my skin! Here are three that I absolutely suggest :)!

Bare Minerals is one of my fave makeup brands! No matter what I purchase, I’m almost always satisfied! Their Prime Time BB Primer-Cream not only primes your skin for makeup but helps both dry and oily skin. Since it is part BB cream, it covers blemishes and presents an even skin tone. It also contains 30 SPF so you’re prepared for your day poolside or at the beach!

For those with sensitive skin, Clinique is always your best bet! Their Superprimer Face Primers are perfect for those who worry about trying new products on their skin. Clinique makes sure their products won’t breakout your face, yet still do the job! The primer does just that and has amazing quality.

Chelsea Crockett - Smashbox PrimerAlthough this is technically a primer, I just have to throw in one last product. Smashbox’s Photo Matte Anti-Shine is a cream-gel formula that is absolutely amazing for people with oily skin. You can apply this cream before or after you put on makeup, depending on the type of foundation you use. It instantly soaks up any excess oil and minimizes your pores. It works for up to 8 hours so you don’t need to reapply continuously throughout the day!

Let me know which product is your favorite!
