When it comes to makeup, our favorite part of the red, white, and blue synonymous with Independence Day is definitely the red. Our reasoning? We love any excuse to rock a bold scarlet lip color, and 4th of July festivities are the perfect occasion. Nothing pulls together your outfit—or adds an explosive touch—better than a swipe of red on your pout, and we’ve rounded up seven of our favorite products in the festive shade.
From a bright candy apple hue to a deep rich wine, check out our top picks below.
- Pomegranate: This deep red crème is the classic shade your lipstick wardrobe needs.
- Starlet: A vivid candy apple red that will keep your pucker looking peppy all night long.
