First up on my beauty suggestions is red lipstick! Most, if not all, of us own at least one pair of jeans and a white top. So all you have to do is apply a little red to your lips and you instantly have a patriotic look.
My top two budget friendly recommendations are by Rimmel London. Check out their Lasting Finish Matte Colors by Kate Moss in shades #111 (kiss of life) and shade #107. The first is a poppy classic red color and the second is a deeper red with a hint of wine color. Both will help you achieve a firework-ready look.
In case you’re wondering where the heck Lucy hales comes in, you can find her photo a.k.a. my inspiration for this look at the bottom of this post. My hairstyle can also be credited to her. On Wednesday I’ll show you how much of a difference one hair accessory can make!
