How To Get The Perfect Makeup For 4th Of July

USA! USA!

When it comes to any special makeup looks you're considering for 4th of July, your options are pretty much limited to three (patriotic) colors—red, white, and blue. Of course, you could skip makeup all together or, y'know, go with your day-to-day look, but with a holiday with such prominent colors, you may as well do it up.

For a look that gets you in the spirit without being too in-your-face, we gotchu.

Here's a tutorial that will have you ready for a #covermoment in no time.

    Start by lining your top lid with a bright blue eyeliner like COVERGIRL Liquiline Blast in Blue Boom.

  2. Eye Shadow

    Using an angled brush, add a blue eye shadow like COVERGIRL Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Sapphire Flare to extend the liner into a subtle cat eye. If you want to make sure you have all the patriotic color elements, you can add white using an eye shadow like COVERGIRL Flamed Out Shadow Pot in Blazing White.

  3. Lipstick

    For your lips, the redder the better. We mixed two different COVERGIRL Colorlicious Lipstick shades—Hot Passion on the bottom, and Garnet Flame over top.
