PATRIOTIC MAKEUP

Ummmm, has anyone else realized that Fourth of July is around the corner? For those of you who do not live in the United States, July fourth is the day that America declared it’s independence! We celebrate with fireworks, pool parties and barbecues. Most of show our pride by wearing the colors of our flag and listen to great songs about our country. So in honor of our celebration, I have created a fun and patriotic makeup look for all of you! I had a ton of fun coming up with this look, it took me a couple of tries to figure out what I wanted, but I finally did it. This is a very bold day or night look, but don’t be scared to give it a try. I hope that you all enjoy this post, as much as I enjoyed putting it together. If you have already created something similar, I would love to check it out. Leave the link in the comments and I will give it some love. Now let’s get started with the good stuff.

Before I applied any face makeup, I created my eye look. This blue eye shadow got all over the place! If you choose to apply your face first, be very careful, you don’t want to look like you got attacked by a smurf. I like to apply tape underneath my eyes to create a sharp, crisp line. If you are confused when I say apply tape, I will leave a link explaining that. I am horrible with explanations, you can check that out on my Pinterest. From there, I created a wing with a blue eye shadow, feel free to use a blue eyeliner if you have one. It might be easier to apply, but I don’t own a blue liner. I should really get one, it would have made things a lot easier. Anyway… The next step was applying that same blue shadow in my crease, for those of you that are not comfortable, feel free to skip that step. My “winged liner” kept transferring  to my lid so I went ahead and placed it in the crease. If you can’t beat them, join them! Once that you have blue all over the place, I applied some false eyelashes, just to glam the look up a little. I feel like falsies can make or break a make up look. They just give so much life to your creation, it is unreal!

OK, so now that you are satisfied with the blue and are out of your comfort zone, it is time to apply the rest of your face. My face consists of; moisturizer, concealer, foundation, setting powder, bronzer, blush, highlight and eyebrows. I have a post on the products that I use on a everyday basis, I will leave the link to that here. Once I completed my usual face stuff, I felt like this look needed a little more jazz to it. I took a glittery liquid liner, this one is from E.L.F, I applied it to the tops of my cheek bones like a highlighter. I feel more like myself now. Ahh, sparkles! If glitter doesn’t make you happy, you are not considered a human, I don’t know what you are.

Now for the fun, yet most complicated part of this look as a whole. The application of red lipstick, try to keep it on your lips and off of your elbows. If you accidentally get it on other parts of your face (or body), like I do every time, just cover it with a small (or a large) amount of your foundation. I used a liquid lipstick from Colourpop and a CoverGirl gloss on top. After that you look more patriotic than ever before! You can sing a little a song, preferably a Toby Keith one and feel free to do a little dance. Now put on your party clothes, change outfits at least two more times and then go have fun! I got this cute top at Charlotte Russe in the Plus Size section. They had American flag tops and all kinds of patriotic fashion items there! Cute stuff and amazing sales, you will thank me later.

Thank you all for reading this post, I hope that you liked it. Remember this is a fun look, not my everyday look, so please be nice. If any of you recreate this look, I would love to see it! Please tag me on Instagram, Twitter, wherever! I love you all, until next time!

Let’s be friends!

Wedding Wednesday! 

Hello everyone! I have just a few updates on the wedding. Nothing too crazy, but just enough to share. Before I get into all of that I want to stop and take a minute to say welcome to all of you who are just not stumbling on to my blog. I hope that you enjoy this post and follow me! I follow back. I also follow on all of my other social media! Twitter is the best way to get a hold of me. For any collaborations, I will link my email down below. Let’s get on with the updates. 

First I want to share that 5 out of 7 girls have bought their dress and shoes! I am going to have to say, that is a pretty good number and they bought them all the same day. It was so easy and I have to thank David’s Bridal for making it all happen! I went with two different dresses; one for my maid of honor and the other for my bridesmaids. The color of the MOH is petal and the other girls dresses are going to be like a dark grey. Here are the styles. Modeling for us today is my baby sister, I love her!  The dress on the right is the style that my MOH will be wearing and the other style is for my BM. Let me know what you all think? I fell in love with these dresses as soon as I laid my eyes on them and they looked so good with the shoes I picked out. The ladies that worked there were so helpful and the manager was amazing. I am really glad that I chose David’s. 

 

Next up I have the shoes, absolutely gorgeous. At first I had my mind set on converse, but the moment I seen these, everything changed. I want my girls to feel comfortable and not cause a domino effect as we all walk down the isle. Since I am not wearing heels, why make my girls wear them?  Here they are, the lace is going to go so well with the lace on the dress. Hopefully I can find some lace converse to go with my dress! If you haven’t seen my dress I will link the blog Here.

 

I am still in search for a veil,headpiece and a hair style for myself. I did find the hairstyle that I want my girls to rock!  I think an up do like this one is going to be amazing! I just love how they look so elegant. Please feel free to let me know what you think! Any suggestions and tips I am willing to listen! I am constantly on Pinterest doing research, so if you would like to see what I pin, follow me. I will have all of my social media listed below. I hope all of you have an amazing day!
