FOTD: Fourth of July Inspired Makeup Look!

Hello guys! So today I am creating a Fourth of July Inspired Makeup Look! I definitely think that this is an extremely fun look, its a bit different then the other looks I see beauty bloggers sporting.... probably because I didn't use the proper red, white, and blue    I just worked with what I had in my collection! I hope you enjoy my creation and keep reading to see how I created it!

For my face, I mixed CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation in Medium Beige (Review) and L'Oreal True Match Lumi Foundation in Nude Beige to create a long lasting but glowing skin! To conceal my undereye bags, I used Maybelline Dream Touch Lumi Highlighting Concealer in Radiant underneath my eyes in a triangular shape. For any spot concealing on my face I used the CoverGirl and Olay Concealer Balm in Light. To add some color back to my face, I applied Physician's Formula Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Blush in Rose on my cheeks. As always, I used the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Transparent to set my face makeup.

For my eyebrows I am using my go to eyebrow product, the Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade in Dark Brown (Review) and to set my eyebrows I used Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel (Review). I then primed my eyes using the Jordana 12 Hr Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencil in Continuous Almond (Review). For my eyeshadow look, I first placed Mac Matte Eyeshadow in Saddle into my crease as a transition color and to help make blending a lot easier. I then used Inglot Matte Eyeshadow in 353 (Review) as a highlight on my browbone and on the inner half of the eyes. Then, I applied Elf Essential Eyeshadow in Teal in the middle of my lids. After that, I placed Inglot Pearl Eyeshadow in 428 on my outer third and into the crease. To finish up my eyeshadow look, I placed Inglot AMC Pigment in 30 to my inner third for some extra dimension. To line my upper last line, I used Wet n Wild Mega Liner Liquid Eyeliner in Black and I brightened my waterline using thw Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in Nude. I finished off my eye makeup by applying Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara in Strauss Black, a glittery black mascara, on my lashes.

Prior to putting on my makeup, I prepped my lips using the Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch. Because I will be wearing a red lip, I will be using the Jordana Easy Liner for Lips Retractable Pencil in Sedona Red to ensure the longevity of my lipstick and to help fight against feathering! The lipstick I would be using is Victoria's Secret Color Drama Lipstick in Ignite. I found that the lips were slightly overpowering for the look, so I used NYX Megashine Lipgloss in Beige to help tone it down.

Of course, you need to set your face to make sure that the makeup sliding off! Today I used Urban Decay Deslick Setting Spray to help make my makeup last as long as possible.

I hope you guys enjoyed this makeup look and let me know what you think!
