It was one of the best 4th of July’s I’ve had in a long time. We went over to our friend’s place around 1pm and stayed until after 1 in the morning! We ate bbq, chips & dip, drank some wine and beer, played poker, hung out at the spa, played Apples to Apples, and watched fireworks. Of course there was also a lot of laughter and good conversation too. Today’s my friend Marie’s birthday, so I gotta give her a shout out – Happy Birthday Marie! Ok now on to what I wore…
It was a toss up between wearing a blue shirt and doing bright blue eyes or wearing a red shirt and doing red lips. I threw both around for a while because I like the red shirt better, but red lips is hard to keep up with all day long! In the end, I decided to go with the shirt that I felt was more flattering, and decided to keep up with the red lips, and it worked! Thank you YSL!
So what did you all do makeup-wise for the 4th??
For this look I used:
- Eyes: UDPPS (primer), Bare Study PP (base), Bobbi Brown Nudes Palette: Pebble (inner lid), Maple Sugar (middle lid), Caviar (outer lid & crease), Beige Linen (highlight), Smolder Kohl (liner), Plushlash mascara
- Cheeks: Bobbi Brown Flame Shimmer Blush + Bobbi Brown Nude Shimmer Brick
- Lips: Brick lipliner + YSL Rouge Velupte #18

This is a nice work appropriate look I’d like to try. I did not wear makeup over this 4th holiday but I did wear Zoya’s Indigo n/p. Here in the south it has been over 100 degrees and way too hot for much of anything-let alone wearing makeup. lol Glad you enjoyed your 4th (I did too).
