Red, White, and Beautiful

Posted on

Hey everyone, I wanted to post about my look that I wore for the 4th. I know the holiday is behind us now, but guess what? The 2012 Summer Olympics start in a few weeks on July 27th and this look also works to show your USA pride!

I saw a lot of crazy looks out there for the 4th, but I didn’t want to be hanging out at our friends BBQ with stars, stripes, and flags all over my face. o_0 I wanted to do something subtle, but still celebratory.

Cute and simple, right? Red lipstick, white shimmery shadow, and blue mascara. It’s as easy as that. I also decided to use some peachy blush, and blue eyeliner winged-out. I bought a cheap eyeliner at Walgreens for $0.99 so it was pretty hard to work with and had little color payoff. Boo.

My outfit you ask? I got this flowy red top at Target and these really cute and appropriate shorts at Forever 21.

Product spotlight:

Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer (SPF!)

MAC Eye Shadows in Shroom and Blanc Type

Great Lash mascara in Royal Blue

Smashbox Brow Tech in Brunette

Crappy blue eyeliner in Who Even Cares? x_x

MAC lipstick in Russian Red

MAC lipliner in Brick

Neutrogena Age Shield Face Sunblock SPF 70 (Seemed to work well, my face didn’t get red at all!)

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunblock SPF 70 (Not impressed, still got a little red, but maybe I didn’t spray enough?)
