What do you have planned for Independence Day? Whatever your plans, here are some beautiful beauty looks that are perfect for daytime fun.

Patriotic

When it comes to incorporating red, white, and blue into your beauty routine, less is always more. Red and blue are intimidating because they are both bold colors, but if you do it correctly, you can look both patriotic and posh! While your first instinct might be to go for big blue on your eyes, try a champagne color instead. This neutral hue looks good on everyone, and it will read just white enough to stay true to your theme. For a daytime BBQ, try a low-maintenance red-tinted lip gloss. Round out your look with a beautiful blue manicure: a deeper blue for a more sophisticated look, or something electric if you’re feeling feisty.

Bohemian

A daylight event is a great time to try out boho-inspired makeup. Think of the look as “natural +”. Apply a neutral palette, with hues like gold, bronze, and brown on the eyes. Use a brown liner (skip black, it will harden the effect) to define the outer corners of your eyes, and for your bottom water lines, contrast the neutral hues with a line of bold color. Bronze looks gorgeous with green, while brown can be pumped up with blue. Finish up with a coat of mascara, and leave lips natural.

Shimmering

Independence Day is the perfect time to have some fun with your makeup. Even if you usually prefer matte makeup, this is a great occasion to experiment with some sparkle – and, dare we say, some glitter! Incorporating shimmer into your beauty look is best done on the eyes and on the cheek. For some sheen on the face, use a bronzer to create a dewy, glowing look. Shimmer goes naturally with eye colors like gold and steely grey, and to take it into nighttime, use a dramatic black eye shadow with gold sparkle.
