Bring on the sparklers, backyard BBQ’s, red, white, and blue outfits and everything else patriotic. Let’s lacquer our lips in red together, pop on some lashes, and celebrate America big with this easy step-by-step makeup guide with MOXIE’S Chief Beauty Innovator, Bianca Alcazar.
Patriotic Makeup Look in 5 Minutes
If you want to get out the door quick for the 4th, here's a quick and easy makeup look that anyone can recreate in minutes. Follow the steps below to get Bianca's look.
Step 1: Apply Your Eyeshadow
First, prep your eyelids with an eyeshadow primer to keep your color strong. Then, sweep the color Hot Spell from Urban Decay Naked Petite Heat Eyeshadow Palette into the contour of your eyelid and under your lower lash line. If you don’t have this palette, opt for a matte light brown shade with a warm undertone. This gorgeous color will draw out the brighter shades in your eye, and make them stand out even more.
Step 2: Add Magnetic Eyeliner
Grab your black MOXIE Magnetic Eyeliner and apply it along your upper lash line. One layer works perfectly for a sleek like, high-definition look. Or, you can add a second layer for a slightly thicker, more dramatic eyeliner application. Once you’ve applied your liner, you need to let it dry for three minutes or until it is no longer tacky.
Step 3: Click on Your Magnetic Lashes
Once your eyeliner is completely dry—it’s time to elevate your eyes to 4th of July, firework-ready-status. For this look, Bianca is using our weatherproof Magnetic Lash style in Swaggy. This lash style is made with Bionic Silk, a premium eyelash material that is vegan and cruelty-free, but has the look and feel of mink. You can just pop it on your dry liner and it will stay on all day no matter what.
Step 4: Red Lips
Last, get your favorite red lipstick and apply it with a brush or from the tube. Make sure to blot it down with tissue, add another layer, and then blot again. This little trick makes your lipstick last longer so you can sip festive drinks and eat obligatory red, white, and blue dessert without it going anywhere.
Step 5: Baby, You're a Firework
You’re done! Easy, right? Now that you’re 4th of July ready in 5 minutes, throw on your favorite American Flag shirt and get on with your day. Let’s celebrate!
