Patriotic Beauty : Navy + Red

There is something about the color combination of the classics like NAVY + RED that feels a little bit patriotic and sophisticated all at the same time. Possible July 4th makeup inspiration, no?!!


Eyes – Too Faced Matte Eye Collection (used the browns for my crease and navy shadow on top of blue eyeliner to soften)  | Palladio Herbal liquid eye liner “Charcoal Blue”
Cheeks – butter London Cheeky Cream blush “Honey Pie” | Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick “Pink Quartz (to highlight top of cheekbones and bridge of nose)
90% of the time, I usually get my makeup ideas from the clothing I wear.  This day I was wearing my paisley Banana Republic shorts that were a sharp combo of blues, navy, oranges, and reds (photo of the print above).  
Since navy lips and red eyes probably wouldn’t look so hot, I used these classic shades in a classic way – NAVY winged eyes, ORANGE cheeks, and RED lips!  This red lipstick by Revlon is actually fairly sheer and is a good option for those scared of deep red lips.  And navy liner is a great way to shake up your makeup look from the boring browns and blacks, and navy looks good on EVERY eye color!!  I don’t typically speak a lot on hair because, well, hair styles and products baffle me, but my mom gave me this keratin product for my hair, and I LOVE it!! I spray it on before I blow dry and is like an instant shine and split end booster.  These pics made me realize how much it has helped my beat down hair from this summer sun.

I will definitely be recreating this look again come July 4th as we will be in the most perfect place celebrating – Washington, D.C.!!
