I’ve pulled together the ultimate Americana beauty bag filled with everything you need to show a patriotic spirit. Whether you want a pop of color for Memorial Day weekend, a summer barbeque or the independent spirit of the Fourth of July, you can show your true red, white and blue colors with a few fun beauty products and designs that are truly your own. Talk about getting in the Star Spangled spirit!
Don’t be afraid of blue shadow. It’s come a long way since the Bicentennial. This gorgeous, creamy formula glides on easily and lets you create a soft, subtle shimmer or, if you want a little more star power, a super shimmery look.
White eyeshadow, you ask? Sounds like a beauty fail, but it has its place in my makeup bag. I like this shadow in sugar cane for creating accents, using as liner and layering over another color for some added shimmer and shine. It’s also perfect for highlighting just under the brow bone.
I love the luxurious look and feel of liquid eyeliner in matte sapphire. And you add a little unexpected glamour when you skip the black and go for a little color. This luxe, rich blue give you just a hint of color for creating those dramatic, stylish lines that are so current right now.
Color rocks when you use it on your lashes. Blue mascara is a summer favorite of mine. It’s just a touch softer than black, but it still makes your lashes pop for a bold, gorgeous eye.
The easiest, quickest way to add a little color to your face is this simple stick. It moisturizes with a creamy, oil-free formula that you can layer to achieve the color and look you want.
When we’re talking reds, the lips are at the center of the discussion. There is nothing more classic, elegant and totally glamorous that full, red lips. Don’t just change your look…a red lip changes your attitude as well. And I love this formula because it hydrates, illuminates and creates sculpted, beautifully shaped lips.
Ladies, gloss is a must. It’s perfect for layering over a bold lip or wearing on its own for a more subtle shine. Your lips will love the look…plump, smooth and shiny. Create an unmistakably beautiful look with this gorgeous gloss.
Finally, a lip pencil that is creamy, soft, waterproof and delivers rich, bold color (scarlet). It glides on easily and won’t smudge or budge for hours whether you’re wearing it alone or as a liner with your favorite lipstick.
I’ve said it before…nail polish is a perfect cosmetic because it’s so easy to change colors and the sky is the limit when it comes to looks you can create. This creamy red is perfect for elevating your look this summer.
Blues have been on trend for several seasons and it’s a nail color I never get tired of seeing. Try this classic navy for a beachy, nautical look.
White nails are trending and it’s an elegant yet whimsical look that goes with almost every skin tone, and makes your tan pop.
And if you want to rock a little rock star, try this gorgeous blue violet created with superstar Kelly Clarkson. It’s fun, sparkly and perfect for your active summer lifestyle.
The colors of the moments are red, white and blue. They embody the bold, fun, summer, and they highlight your fearless approach to style. Honor that independent America spirit with a little red, white and blue in your beauty routine this summer!
