Face of the Day: Red White and Blue Makeup

Happy 4th of July, Americans!

Since I love to tailor my makeup to the occasion, I couldn’t resist pulling out some seriously freedom-filled red white and blue makeup.

Specifically, red and white eye shadow with blue eyeliner.

FOTD: Red white and blue makeupIt ended up a lot prettier than I would have expected.

In fact, you can see another of my Independence Day FOTDs from exactly 5 years ago near the start of Makeup Files: Happy Independence Day.

Umm…I’ll put this politely: I look a lot better now. Yikes.

First, I used Sephora Eye Shadow in Aspen Summit for the swath of white eye shadow. Then, to add red eye shadow (that kind of looks pink), I used one of the red shades from the Elite Pro Cosmetics 88 Eye Shadow Palette.

I wanted blue eyeliner, so I busted out the Sephora Smoky Cream Eyeliner in The Deep End. Then I used NYX Doll Eye Volume Mascara on the top and POPBeauty Peak Performance Mascara in Inky Indigo on the bottom.

It’s full of freedom!

What are you doing for the 4th of July?

Even if you aren’t American, what are your plans for today? Fireworks? Swimming? Barbecue? Reading a book?

Will you be doing red white and blue makeup, too?

My answer: My plans aren’t totally solid yet, but there will definitely be a barbecue and some strawberry shortcake for dessert. Also, I want to finish the book I’m reading: The Vanishing by Jana DeLeon. I’m soooo close.
