Fourth of July Makeup

We've all read the articles on how to bring the Fourth of July into your wardrobe. But let's be honest, how many Fourth of July weekends have you spent in that same old stars and stripes tank? Well, we're switching it up. This year we're leaving the flag shirt at home and instead rocking some of our favorite Fourth of July makeup looks!

I know it can be daunting to look at Pinterest for ideas, especially when most of the looks are created by uber talented beauty vloggers. So, in order to make your Fourth of July look easy to achieve, we've put together some of our favorites and ordered them by their difficulty!


Just A Touch

Fourth of July makeup doesn't have to be hard, and it shouldn't take hours of watching tutorials. There are a ton of easy ways to incorporate your American pride into a pretty and festive look, while still keeping it classic and easy.

Patriotic Eyeshadow

Just adding a bit of shadow in either red, white, or blue is a very simple way to bring the flag into your look. And it's a great way to make your eyes sparkle just like those fireworks you'll be watching.

Here are the best colors for your eyes

  • Green Eyes: Generally for green eyes you should stick with purple toned colors to get the biggest effect. So for your Fourth of July makeup, I'd suggest a red or blue that has a slight purple undertone, or even put down a purple base to bring out your natural green tones!
  • Blue Eyes: Oranges tend to bring out the sparkle in blue eyes the most. Finding a red eyeshadow that is warmer, or has a copper undertone will make your eyes stand out all day.
  • Brown Eyes: As it just so happens, blue is one of the best colors to pair with brown eyes. So get ready to throw on some deep blue eyeshadow this Fourth of July.

White Eyeliner

It doesn't matter if you prefer pencil, gel, or liquid-find a clean, white eyeliner and line your upper lashline for a quick way to make your eyes standout. This is also a great way to bring white into your look without worrying about dullness or colors bleeding together.

Red Lipstick

Bring out that bright red lipstick you only wear on special occasions and give it it's time to shine. It's classic, bold, and perfect for the Fourth of July. It instantly makes any look festive and fun!


Everything In Between

So maybe you want to stand out a bit more-I get it. Don't worry, we've got some looks for you too. Bring more color to your makeup with more vibrant shades and bolder looks for this Fourth of July!

All in One Eyeshadow

Putting red, white, and blue on your lids doesn't have to resemble the flag. Place your shades strategically and make sure to have your blending brushes handy. No matter what color your eyes are, this look will always pop with all three colors working together to bring the Fourth into every moment of your day.

Colorful Lipstick

Go bold with a bright lip this Fourth of July. Red is classic, but blue (or even white) is a fun way to switch it up and really stand out in the crowd.

Bring the Sparkle

We can't forget the stars! Bring the feeling of fireworks by adding some sparkle to your look. Whether it's glitter eyeshadow or lip gloss with a pop of shimmer you'll be sure to stand out.


The Bold

Sometimes going all out can be fun, especially when it comes to Fourth of July looks. So for you beauty experts out there, here are some crazy cool ways to show your pride.

Flag Lips

Lip art has blown up the past few years, so it should be no surprise that an American flag themed lip is one of our favorite Fourth of July looks! While this takes a lot of time and perfection, the result is seriously stunning.

Firework Eyes

Celebrate the night early by bringing the fireworks on during the day. This look can be done with makeup, or face paint, so your options are unlimited.


The Stars

I saved my favorite for last! While red, white, and blue are classic, we can't forget about the stars. Just add a few stars to your face using eyelash glue and have fun rocking the look all day.


Makeup is a trendy alternative to going out and getting yet another old flag shirt so why not have fun with it this year? The Fourth of July is all about celebrating and having a good time anyways. So whether you want to show off your skills or just go for a subtle hint of patriotism, you'll definitely have the best makeup around!
