Independence Day is just over a week away and I bet you have the barbecue food ideas in full swing but what about your overall 4th of July look? I like to think of Independence Day as a very toned down Halloween, giving me every excuse in the world to DIY that full size American flag into a rocking skirt or strapless dress. Pay tribute to your country by showing off some patriotic inspired beauty from our red, white and beautiful picks:
Create American flag inspired nails with three important shades from Deborah Lippmann. From left to right: Do Ya Think I'm Sexy (risqué red sequin), Lady Sings the Blues (silver sparkled blue), and Boom Boom Pow (glamorous gold). To create that popular ombre trend you can't go wrong with The New Black's Horizon Ombre Nail Polish 5 Piece Set.
Red lips are an absolute must. In our latest 4th of July beauty shoot (shown far left) we channeled classic Hollywood with pin curls, blue eyeshadow and bright, matte red courtesy of Kevyn Aucoin. With a velvety smooth application and zero fading or smudge, these lipsticks will last throughout the day, perhaps even through that 4th of July hot dog or hamburger!
