Happy {early} 4th of July! I hope you enjoy a day full of relaxation, good food, family and friends. Get out your star printed tanks, some bright white shorts and some pretty gold sandals – you’ll be ready to go. After your beauty routine that is! In honor of the 4th I’ve picked out my favorite RED, WHITE & BLUE beauty products. These are not colors I reach for every day, but worn correctly, can be absolutely stunning.

RED [MAC Everyday Diva Mineralize Rich Lipstick & MAC Redd Lip Pencil]
Red is a shade I designate solely for my lips. I use to shy away from this color for the fear that it would bring too much attention and the worry it would end up all over my teeth. I have since learned to love bright reds for special occasions and parties {and holidays}.

WHITE [MAC Fascinating Eye Kohl] 
White eyeliner can serve many purposes in the world of beauty. The water line, the lower lash, on top of the lid, or even on the cupid’s bow for an added plumping effect. I love to use my fascinating eye kohl on the lower water line! It creates a beautiful brightening effect and makes the eyes appear bigger.

BLUE [MichaelMarcus Nail Polish – Relaxing by the Pool] 
Blue beauty products are few and far between in my collection. It’s a color that usually isn’t work appropriate and I find, personally, doesn’t look flattering on my skin tone. With that said, I love to wear blue on my nails. Turquoise blue, Tiffany blue, light blue, and even “American Flag” blue.

Have a safe & fun 4th of July – Happy Birthday America!
