5 Independence Day Beauty Looks To Celebrate the Red, White, and Blue

The Fourth of July is almost upon us, and while that means sparklers, fireworks, and good food, it also means some red, white, and blue beauty looks. This list of five Independence Day looks will inspire and get your creative juices flowing. The good ole USA will feel the love when you wear some American pride.

1. Full Red, White, and Blue Make-Up

This look is definitely go big or go home. From the star-spangled lipstick to giant false lashes, a full makeup in patriotic colors is a fantastic way to show your USA spirit. This look isn't for the faint of heart, though. It takes a lot of prep time and patience. Those lip stars aren't going to draw themselves. Your friendly neighborhood barbecue might not be prepared for this look, either. If you're looking for something a little more subtle, you could just glam up your eyes.

2. God Bless the USA Eye Shadow

So maybe the lipstick and the false lashes are too much. American flag eye makeup is still festive, without being totally in your face. This look is much easier to put together but still requires some time. Sugarpill makes a stunning red eye shadow to get this Independence Day look popping. Maybelline's Color Tattoo in Blue adds just enough shimmer to shine up the theme. Finish off with NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk, and boom! You've got a firecracker look.

3. Fourth of July Style Manicure

Don't forget about your nails! It's easy to beautify your manicure with some Fourth of July flair. You'll need three colors of nail polish and a steady hand. Sephora X The Cosmics in Cold Hearted is the perfect shade of blue, just like the one pictured.  To stud out the look, apply silver rhinestones with nail glue. You'll need a precision art brush to draw on the stars and stripes for your American flag. That part can be tricky but well worth it. An Independence Day manicure is less bold than makeup, yet it's still super fun and festive.

4. Independence Day Tank Tops and Shirts

July Fourth gets hot, so to show your pride but keep cool, flag tee shirts and tank tops are the way to go. Dressing up in red, white, and blue is a lot easier than painting the colors on your face or nails. Lots of clothing stores sell patriotic clothing as the day gets closer. You can find cute items online too, like the American Flag tank pictured. Enjoy celebrating the day in comfy clothes that still show you're Team USA.

 5. Old Glory Accessories

Maybe you don't want your look to be too red, white, and blue. If you're looking for something more subtle to show your American love, you can accent your style with accessories. A flag purse is handy and stylish. You'll look cool in some sweet, striped shades. And if you're thinking of dressing patriotically from head to toe, you can even get high heels in the USA colors. Flag accessories are a great way to shine bright but not overwhelm yourself. 

 Hopefully these looks inspire you and give you a few ideas of what to wear this Fourth of July. Whether you deck out in red, white, and blue or you play it cool with subtle accessories, you can show your USA pride with these products.
