BBQs. Pool parties. Bonfires. Fireworks. We love it when all of our favorite things come together, which explains our excitement for the long weekend ahead of us. July Fourth is a day to be festive and a time to celebrate freedom, so why not take some liberties with your beauty routine as well (hello, blue lips)? 

Below you'll find a roundup of our favorite Fourth of July makeup looks—continue reading for enough red, white and blue inspo to last you through the holiday. Go on, Miss Independent, you do you!

Fourth of July Makeup

Red Lipstick

Flaunting a red lip may be the best, and easiest, way to show off your patriotic side. Just a couple of swipes across your lips, and you've reached “All-American” status.  We say, go bold with a cherry red lipstick shade.

White Eyeliner

If you’re going for a less obvious, more edgy Fourth of July makeup look, pair white eyeliner with your denim ensemble. Not only is this look effortless and cool, it also brightens the eye area, creating a subtle highlight in all the right places.

Blue Eye Shadow

If you’re the sort to go all-out on holidays, wear blue eye makeup and own it. Try pairing a bright blue eye shadow with red lips to earn the title "Miss America" long before the fireworks are over. 

Glitter Makeup

Give those stars and stripes a run for their money by making your face sparkle brighter than the night sky. Glittery makeup is a major beauty trend right now, so what better way is there to show of  your affinity for fashion than by putting this glitter makeup tutorial to the test? 

Party-Perfect Hair

Fourth of July parties always seem to embody the perfect mix of fun, whimsy and family tradition—make sure your hair follows suit. Go for a feminine, braided hairstyle to keep your strands from getting in your face while you nosh on hot dogs, pie and summer cocktails.

Starry Nails

Last but not least, don't forget your nails! Mix things up with starry DIY nail art tutorial from budding artist and YouTube star Harli G.!
