Hey all!

My name is Kate. I’m a rising junior at Boston College and I also happen to be the new tarte PR intern, doing my best to dive into this glamorous world. I am soooo excited to be working at such a great, green company, not to mention giddy over the access to all the fab makeup!

Recently, I have tried out some of tarte’s newer products, and I must say, as a “college girl,” many of these products are totally ideal.  For instance, as I think many college students can relate, the party scene at school can get overcrowded, hot, and sweaty.  This is why I am in love with tarte’s new summer collection of waterproof products, perfect for girls like us!  So I have decided to put together a list of beauty products, hair and nails included, that are particularly alluring to a beauty addict in the midst of her education.

First off are my fave waterproof products. lights, camera, splashes! and matte waterproof park ave princess. I for one love to look bronze, but don’t want brown streaks of sweat rolling down my face whether I’m stressing in the library, lounging on the campus green or at a party. PAP is the perfect, sweat resilient bronzer. Next in the bag I would include tarte’s cheek stain, in tipsy, and LipSurgence™ natural  lip stain (in charmed).  Again, great long staying products, as well as easy and quick to use– I’m a girl on the go!

Now we can’t forget about the hair.  I have long fine wavy hair, that I like best when straight, however it’s hard to keep it that way when engulfed in humidity.  To keep my hair in place, I have come to turn to L’Oreal Elnett Extra Strong hold hair spray. It gets the job done, but doesn’t make my hair hard or crunchy.  I’m also a fan of chi volume boost.  I loooove volume and this really boosts my roots! Now for the nails.  As I’m sure many of you have heard, OPI has a new gel polish that I guarantee will last over a month without a chip.  I know I don’t have the time or money during school to get a manicure every week (because that’s how long a manicure lasts), so this gel formula is the perfect solution!

Well that’s it for the “college girl’s” beauty bag must haves. Please share any additions and I’ll be back with another post next week!

Xo,

Kate
