This natural look is fun and simple for Independence day. It plays on some of the bright tones of red white and blue, while keeping it down to earth.

 Step 1: With a firm shadow brush, apply versatile powder #21 Crest lightly across the lids.

Step 2: Using a contour eye shadow brush, apply ultra-matte shadow #101 Teal Light starting at the inner corner of the eye, and buff it out around the inner ball of the eye and into the inner crease.

Step 3: Begin applying versatile powder Moondance #90 to the outer corner of the eye using your contour brush. Bring the color close to lash line and blend it up into a thin arc along the crease.

step 3 or 4 - apply 90 to outer corner of eye and outer ball of eye

Step 4: Line top and bottom lids with smokey blue eye liner. For added depth, apply a dry application of #20 London blue versatile powder over the smokey blue liner using an angled liner brush. If you don’t want to wear a red tone on your eyes, and want to stay simple, then this is a good stopping point for a blue/silver  look.

Step 5: Using a contour shadow brush, dab a small amount of versatile powder #85 Sienna onto the very outer corner of eye, starting at the lash line. Work this color into the outer corner of lid. Bring it up into the crease lightly, just below the line of #90 Moondance powder you applied earlier. This creates a slightly smokey effect around the red Sienna shadow.

Step 6: Apply versatile powder #61m Semi Matte White under the brow and to the very inner corner of eye. Finish this natural look with black brown mascara and #503 Candy Apple lip glaze on the lips.

Learn how to easily replicate this fabulous bright and colorful look by one of our makeup artists, Dani, for a bold 4th of July makeover!

Step 1: Begin by applying all natural Mineral Foundation. Dani is wearing a 50/50 mix of Teporah and Canela Foundation, applied all over the face, using a short flat top foundation brush.

Step 2: Add contour to the face using our Vegan Concealer Crayons. Dani is wearing Brandy crayon applied with a flat top foundation brush, along the cheek bones, nose, and perimeter of her forehead. Kerrie crayon was applied with a sponge to her T-zone, center of her nose, and under her eyes. Use a flat top foundation brush to finish blending everything together.

Step 3: With an angled liner brush, Ultra-Matte shadow #111 Tierra Medium is applied to the brows. First, apply this color  as the outline and shape of the brow, in wet form using water to moisten the brush. Fill the brow in with a dry angled liner brush and powder application of Tierra Medium #111.

Step 4: With a baby buki brush, apply #303 Brandy Bronzer to the cheeks, around the forehead, and blend a quick dusting over the rest of the face.

Step 5: Now for the eyes! Apply Versatile powder #20 London Blue to the outer corner and crease of the eyes. Then, apply versatile powder #61m Semi-Matte white to the inner corner of the eyes, and under the brows. Using a flat, square liner brush, apply #55 Black Vegan Eye Pastel as a liner to the upper lids. Apply wings and line the bottom lids using versatile powder #85 Sienna with a short angled liner brush.
