Daytime Beauty Apps

Posted: Updated:

Tampa Fashion and Beauty Examiner, Kelly Machbitz, shows us new fashion and beauty apps that do everything from organize your outfits to help you pick out your favorite nail polish shade -- even how the weather will impact your hairstyle. Who doesn't need that?

•GoodGuide:It's a good idea to steer clear of harsh ingredients like phthalates, parabens, and sodium lauryl sulfate, but it's hard to pick out which products contain them and which don't. Sound familiar? If so, simply photograph an item's bar code and you'll find out just how green the product is. Bonus: Within seconds, expect to receive an assessment on how good the item is for your health and the environment, accompanied by a list of ingredients and picks of greener options. Price: Free

•Haircaster: Think of this as a daily horoscope for your hair. This app prompts you to enter your zip code and hair texture, then tells you how the weather will impact your strands, along with styling tips. Price: Free

•Stylebook: If you love being organized, then download this app...right. This. Second. It allows you to photograph your clothes, shoes, bags, etc., and collage the images to create different outfits. Bonus: You can even keep track of what you wore on a particular day, thanks to its built-in calendar. Price: $3.99

•OPI Nail Studio: If you spend a solid five minutes choosing your polish shade at the nail salon, consider this app a time saver. On your way to get a mani, download this app, change the skin tone of the hand to match yours, and then test out different polish shades so you can choose your fave at the salon in a flash. Price: Free
