Welcome to day 3 of my Fourth of July makeup series!
The last two looks, were definitely a little more understated, perfect for someone that just wants a subtle yet patriotic look. However, today we are dipping into some more color and creating this beautiful patriotic half cut crease!
I love this look because even though it’s colorful and a little out there, it’s not too much and can definitely still be worn out, whatever your Fourth of July plans may be!
First things first, we want to prep our lids, you can do this with a primer or a concealer. I’m just using some concealer and a little bit of setting powder.
Then, going into my Morphe x James Charles Palette, I’m taking the shades ‘Cola’ and ‘Acapella’ on a fluffy blending brush, and I’m going to apply this to my crease.
With another blending brush, I’m going to pick up the shade ‘playground’ and apply this slightly above the last two shades, before blending them all together.
Next going into the shade ‘ring light’ on a smaller shadow brush, I’m going to apply this to my brow bone.
Then grabbing a clean makeup wipe, I’m going to clean up any fallout, and start to carefully remove the makeup on my lid. Once my lid is clean, I’m going to take a little bit of concealer and a flat concealer brush and cut my crease.
Next taking a flat shadow brush, I’m going to dip into the shade ‘flashback’ and apply this all over my lid and the inner corner of my eye.
After that, I’m taking going to go back into the shade ‘Acapella’ and smoke out the outer corner of my eye.
I’m also going to take this shade on a small detailing brush and smudge this across my lower lash line.
Moving onto eyeliner, if you saw yesterday’s post, you’ll know that I can’t find a shade of red eyeliner that I like anywhere (let me know if you guys know a good one!) so instead of using a typical liner I’m taking a liner brush and my Ben Nye Rainbow Wheel, and I’m just going to dip into the red face paint and draw a wing on with that.
Because we did obviously use a face paint for eyeliner, I want to make sure it’s really set in place and it’s not going to smear anywhere so on another liner brush, I’m going back to my Morphe x James Charles palette and just dipping into the shade ‘You’re Kidding’ and applying this right over that wing.
Then just apply some False Lashes and Mascara and you are all ready!
and that is the finished look!
