Happy Fourth of July to all! For the past few weeks, people around my apartment area have been setting off massive fireworks. Don't get me wrong, I love a good fireworks show, but NOT until the fourth (I will make an exception for beach fireworks as well). Needless to say, I'm ready for the real thing!
I wanted to share with you my simple, yet statement look for Independence Day. I kept things pretty simple but added bold features to spice the look up. Hope you like!
For some reason, I think gold and red are such timeless and classic colors. It's a perfect color combo for any special occasion look. I wanted to keep the eyes pretty simple since the lips are so bold.
First of all, I have to mention my new favorite face product of possibly all time, MAC MSF in "Cheeky Bronze". Holy cow, this is such a gorgeous multi-task product. I've been using it NON STOP ever since I received it. It gives your cheeks the most gorgeous golden glow but also acts as a natural peachy blush.
Of course the lips are the main focus. I used Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in "Live it Up" which is a true warm toned red. I'm not a huge fan of using blue based red lip colors so I knew I wanted to stick with this particular shade for this look. It's a firecracker red, for sure!
I kept the eyes simple with a golden champagne duo from Bare Minerals called, "The Top Shelf" and added MAC's Power Point Liner in "Buried Treasure" to the top and bottom lash line for soft definition. I also used a bit of "Charcoal Brown" in the crease.
What are you guys wearing today? I'd love to know! Happy Independence Day!
