The 10 Commandments of Lipstick

Just by adding lipstick, it can change your outfit or your "look"drastically!  I often hear a lot of people say, "I can't pull off red lipstick" or "Nude just doesn't look good on me", but it's probably because you just aren't used to yourself with a different lip color!  These 10 commandments will help you with any "lipstick problem" you may be having!

1. Start with a clean lip for a fresh base
Remove any and all previous lip color with your normal makeup remover.

2.  Know your formulas
Whether you want a neutral or vibrant color, knowing the different formulas can help perfect your desired look.

3. To intensify a color, use a lip pencil
A lip pencil can help add shape and volume to your lip lines.

4. A brush will help a lipstick last longer
Applying your lipstick with a brush can help the color last.

5. Blot the right way
After applying your lipstick, blot with a Kleenex to get rid of the unnecessary extras.

6. Don't get lipstick on your teeth
Every now and then, check your lipstick and teeth to make sure this embarrassing situation 
does not happen to you.

7. Top with gloss for a more dazzled look
Gloss is a glamorous way to show your flirty side.

8. Don't be afraid to go nude  
A nude lipstick can help add a classy look to any outfit.

9. There is a red for everyone
 Contrary to belief, there is a red for you! Try out different shades of red to find that perfect look.

10. Experiment with colors
A pop of lipstick color can always brighten your day. Don’t be afraid to mix it up every now and then.

Solving Your Monday Blues

We all know that Mondays can either make or break your week. But don’t fear, solving those Monday blues are easier then you think. Plus, it’s February, which means less Mondays!

1.     Wearing a cute outfit can start your day off with a bang! Look good feel good right?

2.     Grab your watch! I’m obsessed with my gold Kate Spade watch, and every time I look at it while in class or at work, I smile.

3.     Getting Starbucks on a Monday morning is well worth waking up ten minutes earlier.

4.     Lunch with a friend can make your whole week! Monday afternoons are the perfect time to catch up with sisters about your prior weekend.

5.     Bring your planner. A trendy day planner always makes getting organized easier and more fun.

6.     Get your Ray-Bans out. Sunglasses help hide those unwanted Monday dark circles.

Say Yes To The Dress- Formal Edition

With spring formal coming right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about the perfect dress. Whether you attend your sorority formal, get invited to a fraternity's formal, or are fortunate enough to go to both, dress shopping can become expensive and difficult to fit in your college budget. 

Here are a 3 easy ways to save money and have fun with your sisters while finding the perfect formal dress.

1. Ask around and borrow a sister’s dress: 
Many of your sisters have extra dresses they've previously worn that are just lying around. We girls love being complimented on our style, and wearing someone's dress would be the ultimate compliment.  Dress sized all run differently, so you never know who might be your size and your style, which makes branching out a great idea for more options! 

2. BYOD (bring your own dress) Party: Host a dress exchange! Invite your pledge class or your entire sorority to get together and bring cute dresses they've worn to formals or events. Girls can trade dresses, sell for a good price, or loan to one another. This is a fun way to get your sisters together for a night of bonding while also finding the perfect dress! 

3. Rent the Runway: My newest obsession is Rent the Runway. They have everything, from dresses to clutches, I have had so much fun renting all sorts of things from their website. Their website is easy to navigate and has hundreds of styles to choose from. Whether you are looking for long and elegant, short and fun, or chic and sophisticated, Rent the Runway always has you covered.
