Red, White and Blue Lips: Luscious and Bold

Show off your American pride on your lips! Go as bold as the occasion allows for. If the event is formal or in the evening, bold red lips will do the trick. If the wedding is very casual and laid back, combine red and white lines, paint a section of your blue lip and add silver glitter. Daytime summer and outdoor weddings are a great occasion to let your lips sparkle.

You can also opt for a 4th of July makeup that focuses on your lips.

Take your makeup to the next level with some stars and stripes! First prepare your lips with a white base – Paint your upper lip with glossy blue lipstick – grab a hold of a red lip liner and draw the red stripes. We are certain this little trick is already giving you some more ideas, amiright? 😉

1Paint your nails with the white nail polish

2Next, protect your fingers well – either with scotch tape as shown on the picture or with protective wax – there’s gonna be a LOT of splattering! The more surface you cover, the better off you will be.
