Today I thought it would be fun to Recent Look post on my 4th of July makeup look. I always do a festive makeup look for the 4th, trying to make it different than the previous year, and I’m really happy with the one I did this year. I think it was really fun and it came out great.
So the first thing I did for this look was prime my face and to do that I used the GlamGlow GlowStarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow. Next I applied my Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation in 205, Ivory followed by my Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 5, Ivory and I set everything with the Ofra Pressed Banana Powder.
For the rest of my face the first thing I did was bronze using the Nars Bronzer in Laguna. I applied the blush from the e.l.f Bite Size Face Duo in Lychee and highlighted using the first two shades from the Touch In Sol Glowdient Makeup Palette, mixed together.
For my eyes, the first thing I did was prime them using the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow Primer. Then I went into the Pur Festival 2.0 Palette and took the shade Photo Op, a nude/brown, as a transition shade, putting it in the crease and blending it out just a bit. Then I went into the Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry Palette and took the shade Noir, which is a dark blue/black, put it on the outer corner of my eye and brought it in just a little bit. I then went back into the Pur Festival 2.0 Palette and took the shade Electric, a sparkly dark blue with a black shift, and put it on half of my eyelid. For the other half of my eyelid and the inner corner of my eye, I went back to the ABH Sultry Palette and grabbed Cyborg, a sparkly silver shade. I then took Noir, Electric and Cyborg and put them under my eye, matching where they were on my lid. I lined my eyes with the KVD Tattoo Liner in Trooper and topped it off with the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. I obviously wanted a red lip, and for that I used the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Famous Red. This is a new lip color for me, I’ve only worn it once, and I didn’t line my lips because I wanted the full effect of the lipstick and because it’s in pencil form you don’t always have to. And to set everything I used the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray.
That about wraps it up for this post, if you did a festive makeup look for the 4th I’d love to know what you did.
Until next time, have fun creating different makeup looks and I hope you had a fun 4th :).
