Lippie Love: I’m Ryan Kelley and I’m a lipstick lover.

As you may well know I’m kind of obsessed with lipstick. If I haven’t said it enough lip color is the perfect accessory. Your lippie makes your entire look live and breathe!

A basic nautical striped dress goes from sweet to sassy with a swipe of Kaior Harlem Knight.

Style Secret: For a statement lip color, a matte texture

trumps a glossy sheen. Less is more.

Glam up your girls night look with an electric pink shade. Milani offers their Violet Volt and NYC serves up a similar shade in #405 Blue Rose.

Style Secret: If the voltage on the electric pink is a bit too high, temper it with a dark pink or nude lip liner.

Experiment to find the perfect nude for your complexion. Ladies with deep skin tones like mine, give Milani’s Teddy Bare a shot. Nude looks boast major beauty in both matte and gloss.

Style secret: Going for a bold eye? Nude lips give balance.

Wanna be on trend for fall? Try dark, vampy lips. I’m going insane for Black Radiance’s #5023A and #5023B. A is reminiscent  of chocolate covered cherries while B is more like a dark chocolate.

My lippie love story is an ongoing affair. What are your favorite lipsticks? Are you trying new shades?

Let the party begin right at the tips of your fingers.

•Keep it classic and professional with a sleek french mani.

•Step out of the box! Add just a little spice to your traditional mani.

Image

Image

•Achieve pretty picture perfect nails with nude colors and neutrals.

Image

•Color your party spot to pop or sizzle! Vibrant spring colors make an awesome office friendly statement.

•Get wild! Animal prints are fun for nail art fanatics of any age and great for the weekend!

•You can also add a touch of flair with modest designs.

•Or simple switching just one nail color.

•May your nail party be endless and know that your options are unlimited. Nail polish and nail art don’t have the reputation they used to (i.e. when black was strictly goth, now it’s red carpet chic.) Be chic & sleek, pop or sizzle, get wild or keep it simple. Just don’t be a chip off the old block a chipped nail can sabotage an entire look.

With Love,

Cristen Sudberry

Finding the best shade of red for your skin tone may take some trial and error but it is oh so worth it. Experiment with intensity and texture; try matte, gloss or even a subtle tinted balm until you find the rouge for you.
