Fourth of July Makeup Products to Add to Your Cart, STATJune 30, 2020
Fourth of July may be looking a bit different this year, but you can bet we’re still celebrating. And what better way to show our Independence Day spirit than with a colorful, sparkly makeup beat? Whether your plan is to BBQ with family at home, chill by the pool with a few friends (socially distanced, of course) or watch the fireworks from your backyard, an America-inspired makeup look is your best accessory. If you need some inspo, keep reading, because we’re rounding up everything from bright blue eyeshadow and red lipstick to white eyeliner and glitter ideas to help you complete your look.
If you want to be a little more subtle than wearing a full-on flag bikini, we recommend opting for a bold, unexpected red lip like the Lime Crime Matte Velvetine in New Americana, a flame red shade that’ll pop with any makeup look. We also love the NYX Professional Makeup Filler Instinct Plumping Lip Color in Besos, a glossy coral red.
Try incorporating white eyeliner into your makeup looks this Fourth of July. You can rock a bold wing, dotted liner or even a graphic vibe — it’s really up to you. We recommend reaching for NYX Professional Makeup White Liquid Liner, a tried-and-true favorite that’s opaque and easy to use.
Blue eyeshadow is one of our favorite makeup products to wear for the Fourth of July. It’s a bright, summer-y statement look — you can’t go wrong. Try the Urban Decay Vice Eyeshadow in Evidence, it’s a shimmery navy that’s perfect for a nighttime festivity. If you want something a tad brighter for daytime, use the shades Chaos and Fluorescent from the Urban Decay Wired Palette.
Glitter is a fun way to switch up any look — and gives a nod to fireworks. Feel free to dab a bit onto your blue eyeshadow, let it shine on it’s own or even add some as body makeup or highlighter. We love the NYX Professional Makeup Face and Body Glitter in the traditional red, blue and silver hues. Wanna get even more creative? Apply the NYX Professional Makeup Shaped Glitter in Electro on your lids for a starry-eyed look.
Stars are a natural element for Fourth of July festivities, so why not sport one as a hair accessory? We love this super cute star bobby pin set from Amazon. It’s all of the sparkle you could ever want, plus an undeniable cool factor. Best of all? You can wear it long after the fireworks have ended.
