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!

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.

Shell Crystal Mother Of Pearl Clutch Purse

Statement pieces are all the rage right now. They can add oomph to practically any look, making even the most basic ensembles look anything but. Whether it’s a clutch, statement necklace, shoe, or chiffon scarf, one of these pieces is sure to add a bit of flare and personality to anything you choose to wear. But when it comes to finding a bold accessory, don’t just limit yourself to jewelry. Clutch Bags are just as big a part of an outfit as anything else and people often forget just how much they can contribute to a look. A mother of pearl hard case clutch can do just that. It’s bold, it’s colorful and the texture is unique and rather versatile, despite what you may think.

No matter what your preference, the square shape of this clutch is rather adaptable and is simple enough to go with any style outfit. When worn with a more casual outfit, this piece can really make a statement. You can either play up the color with a blue patterned top to mirror the multifaceted nature of the shell inserts. Pair it with a pair of dark, slim fitting pants. You can even wear jewelry that has similar beading if you want to play up the design of this clutch. Either that or wear a simplistic, dark outfit which will make this piece stand out even more.

When it comes to formal events, a clutch is the go-to bag. While this piece can be worn for more everyday purposes, it can absolutely work in a formal or elegant setting. Just as with the casual outfit, you can play up the color of the bag by wearing a cornflower blue dress that brings out the blue overtones in the inlaid design. Choose glass beaded accessories in matching colors of blue, or bring out the bronze or deep purple undertones of the bag by accenting the ensemble with those colors. If you want the bag to stand out more on its own, then pairing it with a little black dress is the best way to go. The shimmering colors of the bag will be more of a focus when paired with black, allowing them to make more of a statement. Accent softly with blue toned jewelry and makeup but keep everything else simple to allow the clutch to speak for itself.

The great thing about this bag is its ability to look great no matter what sort of event you’re attending. It makes a statement or can provide a unique color palette from which to build an entire outfit. Have fun and experiment with bold accessories like this, you may just find some newfound inspiration and create new outfits you never would have considered otherwise.

Clutch Bags have the ability to make a statement just as much as any other accessory. This mother of pearl clutch can just be the “oomph” missing from your outfit. So buy them at Chicastic now!

Animal Prints In Formal Wear

Animal print is totally hot right now and is often associated with bold and daring looks. While this pattern does lend itself to casual wear or party wear, it can still be made appropriate for formal occasions. Like choosing anything for a formal event, it’s all about the cut, length and style of a piece that determines where it is best worn. The same goes for animal print. Choose your animal print accessories and clothing wisely and you can make it work for any formal setting.

When it comes to formal dresses, the cut and fit mean a lot. Depending on where you’re going or what sort of event you will be attending, most occasions allow will allow you to wear floor length or above the knee dresses. Even if both cuts are acceptable, it’s often that shorter dresses are not /too/ short and fall just above the knee. Neckline matters a lot too. A plunging neckline might be appropriate for a night out or if you’re planning to walk the red carpet, but is often not acceptable at most formal events. A strapless dress could be a good alternative if you want to be a little more bold, but be sure it still provides enough coverage.

Next, do you want to feature this pattern in the clothing itself? Or do you want to use it to accentuate what you are wearing? If you’re opting to choose a dress that features animal print, either in the entire dress or in some aspect of it (whether it is a color blocked dress or features a printed collar, sash, skirt or belt etc.) then you might want to accessorize with a simple statement necklace and clutches. Go for silver or gold, whichever best matches the print you’ve chosen, or go with monochromatic colored jewelry and shoes such as black or white. That way you can still look classy and elegant while exhibiting a bit of your wild side. If you wan to go for something a little tamer, then wearing a solid colored dress with animal print clutch purse may be your best bet. This look goes great with the little black dress but works with other colors as well. Go for a bold snakeskin print clutch or shoe matched with gold jewelry. This way you’re using the pattern to play up your ensemble while the solid color balances the entire look.

Chicastic has snakeskin clutches, leopard print chiffon scarf etc which may be perfect accessories for formal and casual wear.

Black Enamel Fashion Bracelet

Enamel jewelry is pretty hot right now. Available in a multitude of fashionable colors, these statement pieces are everywhere. One great incarnation of this accessory is the black enamel bracelet. Not only does it evoke the bold nature of the style, but it allows you more flexibility considering it features the ultimate, and arguably most exciting, neutral color. It can add a bit of glam to an outfit while still being versatile.

One great way to wear this piece is for a night out on the town. Black goes with anything, so if you’re wearing a dress of practically any color, this accessory will match. To make it stand out a bit more, try wearing it with a color other than black, so the bracelet can stand out in contrast against the color you choose. Usually if you’re going bold with color in the clothing portion of your ensemble, it means that the accessories should provide a point of balance. This piece does just that. The black enamel tones down the look while still allowing you to accessorize without looking like it’s too much.

Also consider playing with a bold shoe or clutch purse. The same rules apply as above for a dress or flashy top. You can also consider playing around with prints, too. The black and gold of this accessory naturally lends itself to leopard print which feature the same colors. This bracelet can effortlessly tie together leopard clutch purses by using the same colors instead of repeating the pattern. This way, the colors accentuate the print, allowing it to stand out more and make more of a statement.

This piece is also great for the office. If you’re looking to add some oomph to your normal workplace ensemble, a simple but chunk piece like this adds some personality to your look while still being professional and appropriate. Pair this bracelet with gold or other statement necklace. Buy this stylish bracelet at Chicastic now!

Spring Wedding Colors

Spring is one of the more popular times of year to get married. The land brightens up and fills with color following the snows from winter, and when it comes to fashion, bright, fresh pastels tend to take the forefront. While pastels can be bright, they can also be soft depending on your desired effect, and both options are more than appropriate for spring. Pastels usually consist of pale shades, such as yellow, green, pink and purple. Purple has been particularly hot these past few years and orange is also on the rise. These two colors can work great when used as pastels for your bridal accessories such as clutch purses.

In their raw form, purple and orange make a bold and bright color contrast. Normally yellow is purples complimentary color but orange, being in the same color family as yellow, is a close second. When in paler forms, such as in the pastel tone, purple and orange are muted but still bold colors both together and apart. When it comes to bridal accessories, accents are the best way to incorporate color without going overboard. While the bride and groom’s color schemes are essentially set (if you’re having a traditional wedding, that is) there is always room to play when it comes to sashes, bow ties, ties, and of course the bridesmaids dresses and bridesmaid purses. These are great ways to incorporate color into the bridal party and you can even alternate with between the two, whichever you choose. Have the men wear pastel purple ties and the bridesmaids wear pastel orange dresses, or even the other way around. And you can choose to go with either purple or orange alone, of course.

When it comes to decor, ribbons, balloons, place settings and floral center pieces can incorporate the pastels you want to accent your wedding. Choose pale orange flowers or use pastel purple napkins and ribbons for the silverware. And don’t forget about the invitations, RSVP requests and of course, the cake! All of these decor accessories can add some freshness to your wedding while keeping it classy and traditional. The schemes are entirely up to you, and whether you decide to go with one or two accent colors depends on your preference and personal style. Don’t be afraid to add some brightness to a traditional wedding, especially if you incorporate them by using accents and accessories. Evoke the warmth and freshness of spring into your wedding.

Check out Chicastic for beautiful bridal clutches and bridesmaid purses which will make perfect gifts.
