She wanted to discuss the things in “college life” that are essential, so that every female business student around the world can become successful. Her blog is not just for the female college business student, you can find all kinds of helpful and interesting articles there. Check it out 😀

Hi girls,

Looking hot, sticky, sweaty, and having a makeup meltdown? Nothing is worse than having a makeup faux pas on a hot summer day; so make your makeup last all day even through the high heat, humidity, pool, summer sun, and ocean water by using a facial primer.

Primers are applied to your face in small amounts before your makeup to prevent your skin from becoming shiny throughout the day. They also help control oily skin problems and help your makeup stay put all day.

Using a primer along with a setting spray will help ensure that your face stays looking like a work of art and not like a wet shark!

So keep your face flawless by using a primer, here are a few faves below: (click on “Primers” link below or Sephora link)

This post comes to you today from precious formals . They had done a great post about the OPI’s Try it on App they have available on their website along with some great polishes to tie into some of their formal dresses. See below post for information about the blog, the company, website, and dresses.

Have you ever seen a polish color that looked so amazing in the bottle, you absolutely had to buy it? Then, once you got home and tried it on you found it totally clashed with your skin tone, or looked cheap on your perfectly sculpted but extra-long nails? What a waste of $10.

Well, O·P·I now has a solution for you! Their super-chic site, viewable in several languages, now offers a chance to virtually “try on” nail polish colors. Select your skin tone and nail length from a wide range of choices, and see how each color would look on you. There’s even an option to add a layer of shatter – their version of crackle – over your favorite color!

You can check out this awesome app here.

This app, combined with their great application and mani/pedi tips, makes O·P·I’s site a must-see for any girl preparing for a formal event or a night out. We especially love their new “Texas Collection” (our headquarters are in Houston). Scroll down to see a few of our favorite color-dress combos.
