Happy Memorial Day Weekend everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Today is a day to honor and remember those who have lost their lives serving in the United States Armed Forces. It’s also the unofficial beginning of the summer vacation season. Being an American federal holiday, I’m acknowledging the day with an All-American makeup look. Pin this page and save it as 4th of July makeup inspiration too!

My All-American Makeup Look
Being an American holiday it was a no-brainer to go with red, white, and blue when creating this look. As you can see I focused on red and blue. I started with the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Blue Blood Palette. I used the shades Blue Blood, Crystal Flesh, and Ocean Ice.
To add a brilliant pop of red, I grabbed a matte red lipstick. This was actually my first time trying The Body Shop Matte Lip Liquid in Tahiti Hibiscus and I absolutely love it! The color is bright and bold, it feels light and has a powdery finish. Lately, I absolutely love lipsticks that have a powder finish. I wrote all about one of my other favorite liquid powder-finish lipsticks here.
Accessorizing My Look
Accessorizing my makeup look, that’s right I built this entire look around my makeup, I slipped on a shimmery red and blue headband from Cara. My red loose-fitting crop-top t-shirt is from Amazon and my ring is from Henri Bendel, I miss you HB!
What do you think of this All-American makeup look? Would you wear it? Do you love red lipstick? What about Blue eyeshadow?
Have a great day off and enjoy the unofficial beginning of the summer vacation season!
