March Madness CHIC-style

March Madness is not just for the boys, and we are here to prove it. We’ve compiled a list of tips, tricks and styles to make sure your style game stays strong this month, whether you are at a local sports bar watching the game or sweating it out on your own! Have your own tips? Make sure to tweet us at @CHICSTUDIOS!

BEAUTY

Focus on the essentials and keep it simple! Apply mascara, tinted moisturizer (with SPF) and gloss to show your natural beauty. If you want a bit more color try using a bit of lip stain.

Minimal Makeup

Get the look with Laura Mercier Lip Glace in “Bare Pink” and Diorshow mascara.

lip stain

Get the look with Benefit’s Benetint.

HAIR

Go for loose, effortless waves (think Lauren Conrad style). The easiest way to achieve this look is by using dry shampoo and a flat iron! Apply dry shampoo before going to sleep (or before working out…yes before!). In the morning, or after getting back from the gym, your hair will have a slight wave. Smooth out with your flat iron. Not your thing? We also love a cute hair accessory!
