Makeup Tips and Tricks



Here at Chicastic, we sell an excellent makeup brush set that comes with 24 pieces! We have it all in this kit, ranging from foundation to lip brushes and everything in between.

So you’re sitting in your satin robe with the kit you ordered for yourself and you need a little help with how to create that perfect look.

No worries! Chicastic is here to help!

♦  Eyebrows: As we all know your eyebrows must be “on fleek” but how do you know if you’re looking polished and not like you drew them on with a marker? Begin with picking out the perfect shade for your hair and skin tone. Your eyebrows should be a little darker than your hair color while complimenting your skin tone. Next, you need to decide how to fill them in…pencil or a pomade? A pencil adds shape and precision while a pomade will define with color. The final step in getting the perfect eyebrows is using your eyebrow comb found in your Chicastic makeup set to comb your hair into place. This will also set the color giving the final definition of shape.

Contour Brush: The newest beauty trend is contouring. Contouring is adding definition and shape by changing the shade of face makeup. By contouring you can completely change how your face appears! Using a bronzer and the Chicastic Contour Brush, apply the makeup just under your cheekbone in a diagonal towards your ear. Then apply bronzer to the outer edge of your nose and just at your jawline. Finally, using the powder brush, blend in the bronzer. Tah-dah! You have successfully contoured your face!

Eyeliner: Winged eyeliner is a classic look and perfect for any occasion! Take the eyeliner brush and dip it into a gel eyeliner. Starting from the outside corner of your eye, create an angle as high as you want the wing to be. Then from the top of the wing, begin a downward angle towards the inner corner of your eye. Last step, fill in the lines. You can make this as simple or drastic as you wish.

Lip Brush: Nothing is better than a good shape of lipstick to compliment a perfect look. Dip the lip brush in any shade lipstick (we are loving the classic red lip) and start by lining the top and bottom lip. Don’t over-line too much or else you’ll look like a clown! Follow the natural arch of your lips and then fill in. Don’t forget to blot the extra makeup with a tissue, you don’t want it all over your teeth. Finish by setting your lipstick with a translucent powder and you’re ready to go!

Stay Warm This Winter With Ponchos!

One of the hardest decisions to make when getting dressed in the winter is how to stay warm while being trendy. You don’t want to bundle up so much that you blend in with the neighborhood snowman. But you don’t want to be so cold that you become a snowman.

So what do you do?

Chicastic recommends a fashion trend that is super cute and practical…ponchos!

Just like a cardigan a poncho goes with almost any outfit. You can wear it with jeans, leggings or even a dress.

They are incredibly comfortable and feels like you’re wearing a blanket. It’s perfect for a chilly office with the look of professionalism still present.

Check out a few ways Chicastic would wear a poncho:


A black poncho over a dress keeps the outfit classic without looking bulky. Accentuate your look with a deep color envelope clutch.



Make a sleek all black outfit standout with a red poncho. It’s the only statement piece you’ll need!



This white poncho is perfect for daytime shopping! Pair it with jeans for a bright look during your black Friday shopping.

Do’s and Don’ts to Holiday Fashion

It’s a week before Thanksgiving and you still don’t know what to wear. This is a holiday that’s all about eating. So how do you dress cute while still comfortable enough to fill your stomach with delicious turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing?

No need to worry, Chicastic has the perfect advice for you! Here are the do’s and don’ts for what to wear to this holiday dinner.


Wearing white anything to a holiday dinner is risky. Especially Thanksgiving. There are so many colorful foods and drinks that you have a high chance of spilling it on you.


Instead of white, opt for darker colors. Deep plums, reds, greens, and blacks are perfect colors for this season. And if you do end up spilling something on you it won’t be as noticeable.

Try to stay away from tight clothing. It looks great when you arrive to the dinner party but you don’t want to be sitting at the table feeling like your clothes are going to pop off.


Wear loose shirts or even a dress. This will allow you to fill up on food without filling out over your clothes. You’ll feel 10x more comfortable and confident. Plus you won’t want to skip over dessert for the sake of fashion.

Don’t show up in a big chunky coat. Yes you want to stay warm when arriving to a party but what are you going to wear when you get cold during the party?


Make sure you bring a light shawl or sweater. Chicastic recommends wearing a poncho. They are this seasons must-have item and they are guaranteed to keep you warm.


Use a clutch pocketbook as your statement piece! Find more ponchos and shoes in different colors on our website.


Using these do’s and don’ts for holiday fashion will ensure a comfy and chic holiday dinner! Check out what we would wear to a Thanksgiving dinner here.
