How To Create a Festive 4th of July Makeup Look
Posted on June 25 2018
Independence Day is synonymous with red, white, and blue—and what better way to show off your USA pride than by incorporating the patriotic colors into your beauty routine?
Celebrate the 4th of July with the festive makeup ideas below.
Bright Red Lip. Red lipstick was practically made for this holiday. Plus, flaunting the shade on your pout might be the best (and easiest) way to show off your patriotic side. Try our creamy lip color in Pomegranate—the perfect deep scarlet—or Starlet—a cool candy apple red—for a seriously bold look. Pair it with our Classic Lipliner in Red and you’ll be good to go. If you prefer Lip Gloss, Caliente provides a delicious pop of color.
Blue Smokey Eye. After applying a navy eyeshadow—use our sparkling sapphire hue Ice Princess—fill in your top and bottom waterline with a pigmented eyeliner. Opt for our Liquid Eyeliner in Storm (a shimmering midnight blue) if you prefer a bold look, or go with our Eyeliner in Navy or Ocean for something more muted. Add a touch of our iridescent baby blue shadow Skylar to the inner corners of your peepers and on your brow bone for highlight.
Stars and Stripes Manicure. Paint on a red, white, and blue manicure with our natural, non-toxic, and “10-free” Nail Polish. Choose one of our reds—Classic Red (our reddest red), Holiday Red (a shimmering scarlet), or Emperor (a rich burgundy)—and pair it with one of our blues—Lagoon (a vibrant sea blue), Admiral (classic navy), or River (a serene pale blue)—and then complete your trio with Iceberg (a glossy white) for nails that will pop no matter how you combine them. Feeling extra creative? Add some stars and stripes nail art for more punch.
Cool White Eyeliner. Make your eyes look bigger and brighter with our Eyeliner in Snow. The pure white formula will not only define and highlight your peepers, but you’ll look instantly more awake. Use the pencil to line the inner corners and the upper lid of your eye, then blend with your finger or a Blender Brush to diffuse and soften the color. Finish by applying it to your waterline for added oomph.
Going for the ultimate America-inspired vibe? Combine all of the ideas above for a full-on patriotic look that definitely won’t seem overdone.
