Look: 4th of July with Red Lips

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).

    Yes, you should try it Denny! That Bobbi Brown palette is amazing – can be matte or shimmery! Ooooh Zoya’s Indigo huh? Sounds lovely! Ouch on the weather though! I grew up in Birmingham, AL so I hear ya on the heat :-) Hope it is still an enjoyable summer though!

    I do want to try Bobbi’s palette and have been wanting to for quite some time. :-) I will make the best of this summer – even with the heat. lol

    You should try it – I really like that it can go shimmery or matte. Plus, if you use up all of the colors, they pop out and you have the outer part to save and pop in whatever other product you want. It holds everything from those shadows to blush to lipgloss. Really nice!
