Brides, bridesmaids, girlfriends can celebrate Independence Day and your wedding with these gorgeous 4th of July makeup ideas. Get inspired by stars and stripes or by the classic red, white and blue. These 4th of July makeup ideas and tutorials can be as simple or as daring as you want them to be.

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.

3Suck some red nail polish through a straw and blow it all over your nails. Don’t suck too hard and make sure you cover the surface you will be working on.

4Repeat the process with the blue nail polish!

5Arm yourself with a Q-Tip and some nail polish remover and carefully clean up your fingers.

6Don’t they look amazing? You’ll be getting compliments left and right!

Feel free to do the same to your toes and give yourself a very patriotic pedi.

Now that the hardest part (finding that perfect wedding dress) is over, do you know how you will complement it with the perfect hair style? We are loving some of the daring looks brides are trying out this year. Whether you plan to wear your hair up or back, you will look flawless in any of these styles.

Take a look at the list below for some of the biggest 2017 trending wedding hairstyles. Buns, flower crowns, braided up-dos, bangs and even boxer braids for the most daring brides. We are covering them all!

2017 trending wedding hairstyles: Buns

Buns? Yes, a few variations of buns are on-trend this year. If you are looking for a romantic, ethereal look, a low braided bun might be the ideal look for you. For a more polished, modern look, ditch the braid and wear a simple low, side bun. This look pairs quite well with neutral makeup to show off the bride’s natural beauty.

Higher buns are also expected to be a top look amongst the 2017 trending wedding hairstyles. But not the tight, ballerina buns we have seen in the past. Carolina Herrera bridal show showed off top knots that were loose and frayed to give the bride a more relaxed look.

This year, brides are embracing their inner romantic, bohemian goddess by adding in flowers to their braids and up-dos. These looks were everywhere during the 2017 wedding shows and are expected to be a big trend for 2017. The flowers also perfectly compliment the natural look that is on trend. We expect to see brides start getting creative when including florals in their wedding hairstyles.

With hair tightly pulled back, there is nothing to distract from the dress. It also makes dancing at the reception easier and cooler, which is all the reason we need. 😉

2017 trending wedding hairstyles: Bangs

Bangs can be hit or miss and, we’ll admit they might be too big of a risk to test on your wedding day. But if you are game for it, a little fringe can help accomplish an effortlessly chic look. Bothe styles of bangs are amongst 2017 trending wedding hairstyles: side-swep and long bangs that reach down to your nose! Well-styled textured bangs can really show off a bride’s natural beauty. You can style them by either letting the rest of your hair lay down or into an up-do.
