¬†Over Independence Day weekend, while everyone is dressing to theme, covered in as much red, white and blue as possible to show their pride for the country. From flags, to stripes, stars all over, freedom, Eagles, firework prints, even Uncle Sam, and don’t forget your token patriotic pin up babe. And then there’s me, dressed in all black from head to toe, so I figured my best bet was to try and have a festive face.


I used my Makeup Revolution Mermaid Forever palette to create a half and half look. Making my left eye red, and my right eye blue with white shimmer in my inner corners and over the center of my lid. I used my NYX white liquid liner to create dots all over my lid, making them more sparse toward the center and more concentrated in the outer third, these were inspired by fireworks! I used the same white liquid liner to create my wings…of freedom. I then used my Too Faced better than sex mascara to liven up my lashes, followed by my Colourpop eyebrow pencil in black & brown to fill in my brows to my liking. I also used my Colourpop highlighter in the shade Hippo on the high points of my face to shine bright enough to be seen from space. I also adorned my cheeks with some star face stamps to add a bit more pizazz.

My outfit consisted of my Black Milk Clothing velvet romper and my all black Nike Roche runs. I threw my hair into two asymmetrical French braids and called it a day. I spent plenty of time outside stuffing my face with all the BBQ I could handle and then as the sun went down I spun some fire for my friends and it was a great day. I hope your holiday weekend was fantastic and would love to hear about it. Tell me what you did over the weekend in the comments below! And let me know what you want to hear and see from me in the next coming months over on my YouTube channel and on here as well. In the mean time…

Stay Stylish,
