A California Fourth of July! (Makeup Look)

Happy Fourth of July lovelies! My readers come from so many different countries, but to those of you in the states, happy Fourth! Last summer during this holiday, I was watching the Eiffel Tower sparkle in France. It was so magical but I missed out on fireworks that summer! This year I’ll be spending the holiday with my fam and working a short shift as well. Luckily, I”ll be home in time for fireworks and firecrackers! I wanted to share a little makeup look with you guys that I created especially for the Fourth. Hope you enjoy!



For this look, I (clearly) took a lot of inspiration from the American flag colors. If you’re in the states for this holiday, you’ll see everybody sporting red, white, blue, or all of them combined! For my lid, I started with a silver shade from the Modern Renaissance palette and added a gold shade from the same palette. This acted as a shimmery base before I started adding color. I then went in with a couple red tones from the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill palette and placed that on my outer V, as well as blending it into my crease and the gold shade.


I also placed that same red tone on the outer corner of my lower lash line. Next, to add a pop of blue that is so iconic from the American flag, I took a couple blue shades from the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill palette. This was placed on the center portion of my lower lash line and blended with the silver shade we used previously. I love the nice gradient the red, blue, and silver created on my lash line! Taking that same blue, I sprayed my brush with the Urban Decay setting spray and placed it in my water line to act as blue eyeliner (because I couldn’t find my actual blue eyeliner pencil).


I then took my Stila Stay All Day liquid eyeliner in black and created a simple wing to add some definition to my eye. With that same eyeliner in hand, I really wanted to add some stars to this makeup look (in reference to the stars and stripes, of course!) It took some great attention to detail and precision to create these tiny stars, but I popped them right below my wing. I think they actually turned out pretty nicely considering I was free handing this in the mirror! Let me know what you think of them!


Last but certainly not least, I placed my Azeredo Cosmetics lashes in “Doll” on my lash line. I can’t say enough about these lashes, guys. I tried falsies for the first time just a couple months ago, but my Azeredo lashes have quickly become my favorite! This pair in particular are simply an extension of my own lashes. They are so natural and extremely light on the lid. I wore them for over eight hours the other day at work and they looked beautiful the entire day! It’s just a small extra step, but they make me feel a little more put together! If you love these lashes too, be sure to use code SAGE10 at checkout for 10% off your Azeredo lashes! 



I know there has been lots of turmoil in my country lately, but I still love taking this day to appreciate where I’m from. I’ve been all over the world and experienced so many cultures but in the end, the US is my home and I feel blessed to be a part of such an amazing and beautiful place. Especially being from California, I’m very biased and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else!

The weather has really been heating up lately here in Southern California, so I’m hoping to spend a little time in the pool or tanning today! My mom usually makes a little snack platter in the shape and colors of the American flag on the Fourth, so check out my Instagram to see that plus the recipe! It’s definitely one of the cutest food platters I’ve seen for this holiday. Let me know down in the comments what you thought of this makeup look! Also, how do you and your family or friends celebrate the Fourth of July? I’d love to know! Talk to you all very soon!
