By this time in December you’re deeply entrenched in the holidays. And we are coming at you with another dressy ensemble that you can wear to either Christmas or New Years! Most people expect you to wear gold, red, green and sapphire. Mixed metals and holiday colors are the total norm! So why not throw people off with a coral punch? Gold pumps, a gold clutch and gold and coral necklace are the perfect glittery pieces for a holiday look, but how about a coral lip and delicious Kate Spade perfume to complete the look? XX
We always hear mixed reviews about makeup. Some women love to try new shades and colors, other disregard the products all together. And then there are some women who stick to routine because it’s what works! So we’ve decided to help you step outside the box by coming up with some different color pairing to help you with you experiment! Today’s story features a dark red scarlet lip, a pale pastel eye and cheek pairing and a nude nail. That way the lip stands out and the other features aren’t as bold. What do you think? Do you dare? Xx
How comfortable, chic and fun is this ensemble we put together for you? Ladies – we know you love to wear black, so we paired tall riding boots, black jeans and a chic black bag with a simple cranberry sweater! It’s perfect to wear while you holiday shop this week and prepare for a feast! XO
Summer is a great season to try out different lip colors. You’re skin is (hopefully) sun kissed – meaning that their is less foundation and blush to worry about. All you need is a bit of tinted moisturizer, mascara and a pop of color lipstick! We adore three different lip colors – pinks, corals and red. The darker color red can be a little much at times – so try and pair it with a simple ensemble. We are currently coveting corals, however – they go with any tan! Pinks are the instant fall back color. They tend to pair with any outfit and are appropriate for most events. Pucker up! XOXO
March madness means something different for everyone. To your husband or the man in your life, basketball March madness means lots of television time. For YOU it means a major color moment. And that color? It’s green! Now, we’ve said it before, but all greens go together. How convenient? It’s the perfect color for springtime! And you can incorporate this color in so many different ways! How fun is that? So next time your out, pick up a mint colored sweater, emerald purse, poppy green phone case, lime pencil skirt, olive dress or apple colored necklace! Any of the above items would be a fun addition to your wardrobe!
There is something to be said about a hot red lip!
Glamour girls like Taylor Swift, Madonna and Brooke Shields love a red lip. It trendy, glamorous and will take you from day to night with the swipe of a scarlet shade. There are so many different types of red to choose from, so be careful! If you tend to have fairer skin stay away from reds with yellow undertones. If you tend to have darker skin – why not rock a reddish, brown color? So this holiday season – rock it! You won’t be sorry you tried it!
Yesterday we told you how to change over your closet for fall, and now we are bringing you the first of many beautiful looks that you can implement into your wardrobe. Jewel tones are best for saturated color combinations this fall, but we are kicking off our look of the day series with delicious neutrals! We urge you to be careful with wearing brown. Rich cognac colors tend to be our favorite. Pairing cognac leather with cream and camel makes for such a luxe look. It’s professional and fashion forward!
We love to switch up our nail color in the summer, here at Kyle Alexandra. Poppy reds, radiant purples, pretty pinks and delicate blush colors are on our radar, this month. Since we have past the fourth, you can begin to experiment with different tones, instead of sticking with a festive, signature red.We suggest a radiant orchid or blush pink to show off your summer tan or a bold hot fuchsia for a statement look. Whatever you choose, it is sure to look smashing!

Print out this post and bring it to your next nail appointment in order to join us! Don’t you want to be perfectly polished for spring?
Fall is here and if you have not already, it is time to switch up your make-up palette, nail polish colors and seasonal fragrance! Here are few easy to apply and simple beauty products that we recommend that will leave you feeling illuminated and beautiful this fall season. The Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer is a fantastic bebe cream that will have you glowing for hours on end (don’t forget to the purchase the right brush to apply). We recently purchased and applied this rich, luxe nail polish color from Essie, called Stylenomics- and we are obsessed! It is that quintessential fall color that is dark, mysterious and sumptuous. At some point during the fall and winter lips may become chapped or dry. We rely on Aquaphor to keep our lips healthy and moisturized so that we can apply a supple coat of Marc Jacobs lipstick. We all need a little shimmer on our lids, right? Apply the smooth, shimmering Dior 5- Color eyeshadow as part of your easy breezy fall make-up look. And of course the number one beauty product we can never leave the house without applying is the Extreme Party Mascara (the name alone makes us do a little dance before applying!) from Bobbi Brown-just an amazing product! Your make-up is on, nails are looking gorg…just one last thing to do before you leave the house-a spritz of a fabulous frangrance! Here is a KA tip: We suggest leaving your favorite perfume at the door and give yourself a spritz on the way out-we are just loving this delicious
Dolce & Gabbana fragrance…just perfect for fall!
