The overall mindset when learning to accessorize like a celebrity is to first realize that anything that is not in your core outfit (pants, bottoms, dresses) is considered an accessory. This basically means that everything else is an accessory, including your lip color. Brandie Price, image consultant, explains more below.
1. Less is more. Keep it simple, while investing in quality pieces. Though it may look like celebrities have an overflow of accessories to choose from when seeing the red carpet events, know that this isn’t what they are wearing on a daily basis. You can start by up-leveling your handbag game. Instead of purchasing several different bags to go with each outfit, consider investing in one high quality handbag. My favorite place to shop is Milk Honey Collection. This is a great way to dip your toe into the world of high design handbags, while not paying full price for those pieces.

2. Choose a signature lip color. For this, you will need to do a little trial and error, but choosing a signature color is one of the quickest ways to get that celebrity style. We know that Taylor Swift sports her Red hue proudly, while Blake Lively is usually spotted in a soft Rosewood cream lip. Finding you signature shade is not as hard as we can make it out to be. In fact, our signature shade usually finds us.
3. Don’t be afraid to be bold and try something new. A larger pendant necklace, over-sized sunglasses tall stacked heels, anything that you have been wanting to try, just give it a whirl and see how it elevates your style. This is how celebrities find some of their most coveted pieces, by trying something new!
