Fourth of July Makeup Tutorial!

The Fourth of July is just right around the corner and a fun and creative way to show your red, white, and blue spirit can be through your makeup. I always think it's kind of fun to get ready for the Fourth of July and to see how I can incorporate the three colors into my outfit, however, I never usually go for a makeup up tutorial that involves those colors. Having the combination of red, white, and blue is an intimating combination on the face. This makeup tutorial involves all three colors, but isn't as wild as the combination may sound. This tutorial includes a neutral and blue eye look with red lips and flushed cheeks.


First, apply a shimmery white eyeshadow in the inner corner and tear-duct area. Next, apply a neutral, light champagne color all over the lid and blend with the white eyeshadow. Blend a soft brown color in the crease to create a little more dimension. For the blue in this look, apply a dark blue liquid eyeliner on the upper lash line, and create a wing if desired. For a more fun and intense blue look, take a glitter blue liquid eyeliner and go over the dark blue liner.
Apply a white eyeliner on the waterline. Apply your favorite mascara to finish up the eye look.

Apply your favorite tinted moisturizer or BB cream, because foundation can melt off your face if it's warm outside. However, for a night-time look, a foundation would be good for full-coverage. 
Apply a red-toned blush on the apples of your cheeks very lightly for a light flush. Apply a light highlighter on the cheekbones to brighten up the face.

For the red in this red, white, and blue look, apply a red lipstick. A super bright red lipstick may be too bright against the blue eye makeup, so go for a classic red lipstick to finish off the look!
