Some people make red, white, and blue desserts for the 4th of July.
Me? I make my favorite red, white, and blue selections from my nail polish, lip gloss, and eyeshadow collections. Here’s are my selections in celebration of our patriotic holiday!
My favorite red, white, and blue nail polishes are: Rescue Beauty Lounge Cherry Love (popsicle red), China Glaze White Cap (sheer white with gold shimmer, I am wearing this one now!), Cult Nails Princess (light dusty blue with pink shimmer).
My holiday lip gloss picks include: Butter London Come to Bed Red (classic cream red), Elizabeth Arden Crystal Clear Lip Gloss (sheer shiny gloss), It Cosmetics News Anchor Blue (sheer blue that makes teeth look super white).
My Z Palette holds my favorite red, white, and blue eyeshadow 4th of July collection. Here are my picks:
Far left row from top to bottom:
Nars Tibet (the consummate shimmery sheer white)
MAC White Frost (a buttery white frost that is perfect for the brow and inner corner of the eye)
MAC Crystal Avalanche (fabulous pigmentation, and this works beautifully as a face highlighter too)
Second from left row top to bottom:
MAC Vanilla (this is a homemade pan made from the Vanilla pigment. I prefer this to the regular MAC Vanilla eyeshadow, which I think is rather boring. My absolute favorite for an eye-widening lid shade)
MAC Star Violet (just enough plum to keep it from being too red, and the Veluxe Pearl texture can’t be beat)
MAC Plum Dressing (gorgeous, different, and makes a great smoky eye look)
Far left row in picture above, top to bottom:
MAC Moon’s Reflection (stunning periwinkle blue that is totally wearable)
MAC Leisure Time (red-gold-bronze that is unique and stunning with brown eyes)
Giorgio Armani #46 (fantastic red-bronze that doubles as a beautiful blush, it applies soft but is buildable for more drama)
Second row pictured above, top to bottom:
MAC Electric Eel (not for everyone, but this is the prettiest, most dramatic blue I have ever owned)
MAC Freshwater (fantastic ocean blue, love this as a liner…and it’s got that fabulous Veluxe Pearl texture)
MAC Deep Truth (sultry true deep blue, one of my most favorite blues of all time…it is a perfect liner shade)
Far right row top to bottom:
Sue Devitt Alexandria (totally underrated brand…this is a fantastic cobalt blue)
MAC Contrast (deep violet-blue, try this over black eyeliner for some mega sultry drama)
Giorgio Armani #1 (rich,velvety navy blue that is a fabulous eyeliner)
