Fourth of July makeup tutorials are here! This year, we are excited to show you some of our favorite ways to sport red, white and blue makeup for Independence day. Ranging from spirited and sexy, to soft and natural, here are the steps to achieving these 100% natural, cruelty-free makeup looks:
Red, White & Blue Beauty
This 4th of July makeup look by the beautiful Ro, is a play on the traditional red white and blue theme. It has just enough color to make you feel like a patriotic goddess, while keeping it sophisticated and sexy.
Step 2: Apply #61m Semi Matte White pastel to the inner corner of the lid, arching it under the brow as a highlight. Blend in with fingertip.
Step 4 – Modified Wings: To complete the gorgeous modified wing Ro has done in the picture, break out your #20 London Blue versatile powder this time! With a wet angled liner brush, apply the London Blue powder in a foil application to add the wings.
Step 5: On the cheeks, apply #15 Rustic Rose Versatile Pastel with your fingertip and blend it out.
Step 6: Finish this all natural 4th of July makeup look with #86 Bordeaux lip gloss on the lips.
Natural July 4th Makeup Look
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 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 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 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 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.
