The 4th of July has the great fortune of falling on Monday this year, and that means the party plans, or the parties themselves are already underway. Food, Fireworks, Fun… none of that spells high maintenance makeup. Polished skin, soft eyes and bold lips (in red. duh) is about all you need to shine for Independence Day.
We can’t get enough of By Terry’s Cellularose Moisturizing CC Cream. The creamy formula goes on sheer but instantly blurs imperfections without covering your actual skin. By Terry ‘makeup as skin care’ mission statement is evident, with a formula packed with goodies like Rose Extract (which also contributes to its divine smell). Even oily skin types can benefit from the soft finish; a thin layer dries demi matte and doesn’t go shiny or slide off the skin, even in the most challenging conditions.
There’s nothing worse than a mascara that ends up everywhere but on your lashes. Holiday proof your fringe with Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterpoorf Mascara. The original holds just fine without flaking or smudging, but if you’re looking for a little extra insurance, waterproof is always a safer bet. Too Faced made a name for itself with cheeky products that translate beautifully in practical application, and this mascara is no exception. The formula (which is on the drier side) thickens and lengthens lashes with minimal clumping, and it stays put until you take it off.
The new Christian Louboutin Loubilaque Lip Lacquer has finally arrived, after months of anticipation. The followup to the highly coveted lipstick collection features a lineup of eight glosses, from iconic red (Rouge Louboutin) to deep wine (Casanovella). There are even a couple of nude shades in the collection just for sport. What makes them unique is that the formula is more like a highly glossy liquid lipstick versus a traditional lip gloss. The pigment content is off the charts, and they even leave a bit of a stain behind (so a light touch to start is recommended). This holiday weekend, Rouge Louboutin is easy choice for color. It will wear beyond air kisses, tons of food and drinks, and leave a rosy stain long after the big finale in the fireworks show.
Stay safe, eat everything, and have fun!
Happy Independence Day.
