Christmas is creeping up on us faster than we know it… and I’m so excited!  Around Christmas time, my friends and I always do secret Santa gift exchanges.  It can be hard coming up with different things to get each year, so I wanted to tell you about the idea I’ll be using for my upcoming gift exchanges!

For me, I can never have too much makeup.  Who doesn’t love trying out new brands and products?  For your kit, you’ll need at least three different products, depending on how much you want to spend.  Chelsea Crockett - Makeup KitYou’ll at least need a lipstick, some type of skin product, and an eye product.  Since most people already have a certain foundation they like to use, pick out a highlighter, blush, etc.  As for eyes, purchase a mascara or eye shadow to add to their kit.

Now that you know what to put in your DIY makeup kit, here are a few of my favorites that are inexpensive yet good quality!  For a lipstick, try Tarte’s Color Splash Hydrating Lipstick.  There are 24 different shades to choose from!  As for a highlighter, you can buy Urban Decay’s Mini Naked Illuminated Powder for only $12 from Sephora.  Since the other two products are a little pricy, add your favorite drugstore mascara to complete the kit!

Are you going to try out this idea this year?  Let me know what products you fill your kit with! 🙂

As you all know, I’m a makeup fanatic. I love playing around with different products to see what looks best on me. My favorite part about putting on makeup is doing my eyes. There are so many ways to switch up your look just based off your eyeshadow, eyeliner, etc. Here are three of my favorite palettes that I use every day!

My number one go-to brand of palettes is Urban Decay. Their Naked Palettes are amazing and filled with a variety of different shades. As of now, they’ve came out with four different palettes. The fourth one, and most recent, is called the Naked Smoky Palette. Chelsea Crockett - Tarte PaletteIt’s probably my favorite out of the four! It has tons of different dark and light complimentary shades that create the perfect smoky eye in a variety of different combinations.

Another brand of palettes I’ve recently fallen in love with are the Tarte palettes. My favorite one is the product on the right. It’s called the Tartelette in Bloom Clay Palette. All of the nudes and browns are perfect for a natural summer look! The palette is $45 which may seem expensive at first, but it’s worth it!

Two Faced is another good brand to check out! Their Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Collection not only has a great variety of colors but even smells like chocolate… WHAT? As soon as you open it, you’ll smell the sweet chocolatey aroma! Each eyeshadow is even made with cocoa powder. How cool is that?

Let me know which is your favorite!
