4th of July makeup- red white and blue cut crease
4th of July may have been weeks ago but that doesn't mean I'm done talking about it!
The truth is that I will probably never be one of those bloggers that posts their makeup/nails for an event..before the actual event happens. I mean let's just be real I don't know what I'm wearing until I put it on my face on my way out the door!
So here's what I came up with for July 4th this year. A totally predictable red, white, and blue cut crease
Pretty patriotic looking, eh?
This look came to life thanks to my Sugarpill @#$%! pressed eyeshadow (red), Nyx Jumbo pencil in Milk and Wet n Wild white from I <3 Matte 8-pan (white) and Chella indigo eyeliner (blue).
Then I completed the look with Nyx soft matte lip cream in Amsterdam
This was definitely a very tricky cut crease since white is obviously very easy to mess up!! So I'm pretty proud of myself for keeping it white!
Once again I must comment that the Chella eyeliner is extremely difficult to use. I discovered this is because the liquid does not come out when you first press down, so this makes it difficult to make an even and straight line because you actually have to put the pen down ahead of where you want to start, for the line to show up where you want it.
All in all I was feeling very festive!
Now here's some bonus pictures of me messing around with some sparklers! You can kinda see my outfit in these pictures which is, of course, very festive at all.
For what it's worth the top is from Target from 2 years ago that I got on clearance for $3 and kept saving for July 4th. Well I missed last July 4th because I couldn't find it so I finally got to wear it this year!
And the red pants are from Kmart.
I live on a budget, yo.
I hope everyone had a fun and safe Independence Day! Did you do any festive makeup for the holiday?
