4th of July Makeup Tutorial

Hey everyone! Happy 4th of July Eve! So today I decided to film a tutorial on 4th of July Makeup, but unfortunately it did not come out very well. My bathroom setup washes me out really badly, and this was the first time I had tried to film a colorful look there. Let's just say it did NOT work. I miss my bedroom at school so much - colorful looks always come out well there :(
Anyway I have decided to turn it into a blog post so that it would not be completely wasted. I basically did white on the inner corners, red on the outer corners, and blue underneath with navy liner. I will list all the products I used.
  • I first used Fascinating Eye Kohl from Mac, which is just a white eyeliner. You can use whatever you have lying around your bathroom (this goes for ALL the products in this look). I applied this all over the inner half of my eye, then rubbed it in. 
  • Next I used Artifact paint pot from mac, a deep red base on the outer corner of my eyes. 
  • I applied a white shimmery eyeshadow (Naked Cosmetics Mother Nature 1) over the white base and a red shimmery eyeshadow (MUFE star powder in 921) over the red part.
  • I used a deep blue shimmery shadow (Naked Cosmetics Ebony 2) under my eyes.
  • For Liner I used Navy Stain from Mac on both the upper line and the waterline.
  • For a inner corner highlight and my brow highlight color I used Naked Cosmetics Ivory 6, which is a gorgeous white with blue duocrome. 
  • For gloss I used Macs Underage for just a neutral pink. 
And then we are done! I like the way this turned out, I wish the video had been alright. Have a great 4th of July everyone!

Hmm, I did a blog post on my 4th of July look, but I might have to do yours instead! This look is pretty enough to wear anytime, not just for this holiday.

Such a pretty look! This is giving me inspiration for my French national day makeup (I'm french) as our flag has the same colors.
