Love Those Lips: Pinks & Nudes

Every woman needs 3 shades in her lipstick arsenal to complete any makeup look: nude, pink and red. While I love myself a bold red lipstick, I've been on the hunt for a perfect nude as well as that ideal medium pink. Here are some of my latest finds that are on constant repeat for both myself and my clients:

1. Revlon "Enchanting" ColorBurst Matte Balm

The perfect amount of sheen equals healthy looking lips for beauties on a budget.

2. RMS Beauty Lip Shine in "Honest"

This gorgeous shade boasts plenty of pigment for an all-natural line.

3. Dose of Colors "Bare With Me"

A liquid lipstick that delivers a beautiful matte finish, especially perfect for medium skin tones.

4. Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in "Coachella Coral"

Found! That pinky coral shade that immediately brightens your complexion.

5. Trust Fund Beauty Lipgasam in "Never Basic"

Fair to light skin tones will find this shade gives the perfect amount of definition and drama to the lips, especially when paired with a smokey eye.

Be My Valentine

Hello my loves! That Hallmark Card holiday is upon us and if you're still looking for some gift ideas, beauty must-haves or #ootd inspo, below are a few of the things on my "I heart this" list:

1. Topshop Embroidered Heart Sweater 

Dressed up with a pencil skirt and heels or paired down with ripped jeans and Stan Smith sneaks, this sweater is versatile and appropriate to wear well beyond Valentine's day.

2. Kate Spade Pretty And Witty Scented Candle

It aptly says "Pretty and Witty Make the Perfect Pair" and smells like a bouquet of fresh peonies. The stripes and gold rim will add glamour to any space. Fun Fact: Did you know Kate Spade's brother-in-law is actor/comedian, David Spade?!

3. House of Lashes "Heartbreaker" 

These strip lashes are equal parts flirty and wispy. If you prefer a glamorous look, try "Temptress" it's one of my ride or dies. Have petite eyes? Go for the "Sweet Romance" style.

4. Revlon ColorBurst Balm Stain in "Sweetheart Valentine"

I mean.....kind of an obvious choice. Besides it's name, this medium, cool-toned pink adds enough punch of color while keeping you lips hydrated for, well, you know [making out].

5. Fresh Flowers from The Bouqs

Receive or send the freshest flowers (grown on a volcano!) that are cut the day you order them, meaning delivery just 2-4 days after . You will not find a more vibrant selection delivered to your door. Ever.

6. "Love" Doormat 

It's love at first sight, literally. Add a little whimsy with Target's super cute doormat and because it doesn't say "Happy Valentine's Day" you can use it year round if love is all you need.

7. Jennifer Zeuner "Rebekka" Lariat

One of my favorite jewelry designers presents this creative take on the four-letter word. Available in gold or rose vermeil, or sterling silver.

8. Casetify "Lipstick Kisses" iPhone case

This site has so many options I still can't make a decision. But if I had to choose right this second- okay I'd mostly probably maybe pick this one. I'm a sucker for hot pink lip prints. These cases are durable, yet sleek which is why I'm totally getting one.
