There is not a whole lot you can do when it comes to face makeup because it acts as a base for the rest of the makeup. The key here is to find a shade of makeup that matches your body and blend it well on your entire face.
Blush is one way that you can add some American pride to your face. There are many shades of blush, but they are typically in the pinkish-red range. A bright red blush would work perfectly for your fourth of July makeup look.
Add the blush to your cheekbones and lightly blend it toward your temple. For an extra sunkissed look, add a little bit of blush to your nose. You can also add a tiny bit to your forehead.
Highlighter can act as a bit of glitter when it comes to your face makeup. You can use a brush if you like, but you can also get some of the highlighter on your finger and slowly tap it on your cheekbone, just above the blush.
You can also use silver glitter if you really want a bold look. Make sure you blend it into your face makeup so there is not a harsh line. When the light hits the glitter, you will absolutely shine like a sparkler!
Getting creative with your eye makeup is the easiest way to have a bold look. There are many makeup tutorials out there if you are looking for a specific look. It can be fun to make up your own look though.
One of the biggest tips is to do your eye makeup before your face makeup. That way, if you mess up on the eyes, you can start over without messing everything up. Makeup wipes and cotton swabs are helpful with removing eye makeup.
You will also want to plan ahead before you start on your gorgeous look. Make sure you have the right eyeshadows and eyeliners that you are wanting before you sit down to do your makeup.
Blue eyeshadow is a classic look when it comes to Independence Day eye makeup. You could sweep on some blue eye makeup and call it a day, or you can take is up a notch and try something new.
First, you will want some Scotch tape and star stickers. You can use the star stickers wherever you want to on your face, but you can also use them for a fun patriotic look on your eyes.
Red, White, and Blue Eye Look
Take the Scotch tape and place it below your lower eyelid at an angle away from your eye. Sort of where the eyeliner would go for a cat wing eyeliner look. Place it gently on your skin under one eye.
Now, you can grab your eyeshadow. For this look, you will pick up blue eyeshadow on your makeup brush (or finger). Lightly dab the blue color on the outer corner of your eye, right around where the tape is.
You can put the shadow on the tape; make sure everything is blended. Now, place a white (or cream) color in the middle of your eyelid, just barely next to the blue. Let the blue and cream blend just a tad.
Now, you will take a red color and tap it on the inner corner of your eyelid. You are going for a red, white, and blue look here. Once everything is blended evenly, you can remove the tape.
The tape makes the eyeshadow go into a winged eyeliner look without the eyeliner. You can add eyeliner if you want (you could do black or go for a bold eyeliner like white eyeliner or blue eyeliner).
For this look, you can use Scotch tape, or you can go without it. Either way will look great. You will need star stickers for this look, though.
First, put the star stickers on the outer corner of your eye. You can do as many or as little as you want. I would recommend at least one or two.
Once the stickers are in place, brush a blue shade of eyeshadow across your eyelids and over the stickers. Make sure everything is blended out evenly.
You have two options now. You can leave the stars in place, or you can remove the stars so there are star shapes in the blue eyeshadow. Either look is cute.
Add some white liner, and now you have a fun look. A great option if you really want to shake things up is to use white mascara so you can have white lashes. This look takes serious dedication.
Lipstick is always a great option when it comes to a pop of color. You can go for a classic red lip, which always works for the 4th of July. Or...you can try something new.
Blue lips may not be the most common, but how cute would they be with some sparkles or silver stars? Find a midnight blue and add star stickers to it on your lips.
You can also make an American flag on your lips. Use blue lipstick on your top lip and do red and white stripes on the bottom. Then, add some tiny stars or glitter to your lips.
If you want your eyeshadow to be the center of the makeup look, try using a nude lip color or a lip gloss. Neutral colors help accentuate the bright colors.
Why do just face, lip, and eye makeup when you can also do your eyebrows? Eyebrows are an essential part to makeup looks, so we should not leave them out for our 4th of July makeup.
To keep it simple, you could find a red eyebrow pencil and color your eyebrows. You will have a red pop of color, and you can find a red eyebrow pencil fairly quickly.
You can also find red, white, and blue eyeliner or eyeshadow. Follow the shape of your eyebrow and color them in like you normally would, but with a different color.
Hopefully, you have some ideas now of patriotic makeup looks you can use for the 4th of July. Have fun with it, and get creative!
