On the Fourth of July, fireworks and patriotic berry trifles are sure to catch everyone’s eye. But you can show off your holiday spirit — and earn some “ooohhhs” and “ahhhhhs” too — with these bright red, white and blue makeup and nail ideas inspired by Jessica Chastain, Julianne Hough, Naomie Harris that will have you shining bright like a sparkler tonight all the way through the Rio Olympics.
The Inspiration: Jessica Chastain’s Candy Apple Red Lips.
Want your lips to look like the fair fave without actually having struggled to gnaw at one all day? Then pick up a non-sticky gloss. Reach for a long-lasting formula to avoid reapplying after each trip to the picnic table. Make your patriotic pout stand out in selfies by choosing a tube with a hint of glitter, like Rimmel London’s Oh My Gloss! in Rebel Red, or with a super high-shine finish, such as Christian Louboutin Loubilaque in Rouge Louboutin.
The Inspiration: Julianne Hough’s White-Hot Manicure.
You’re probably too busy prepping your world-famous pasta salad to paint stars and stripes on your nails. So simplify your celebratory manicure by opting for a pop of white on your tips. A bright tone will hold its own no matter what you’re wearing. If you prefer a warmer shade, try Essie Coconut Cove, but if you’re looking for something cooler, use Topshop Nails in Joni.
The Inspiration: Naomie Harris’ Nautical Eye Liner.
Want to make a splash this season without ruining your makeup in the process? Then toe the line in sea-inspired blues that happen to also be waterproof. Too Faced Stretch Marker Liquid Art Liners come in an array of oceanic shades so you can go bold like Harris or Jessica Biel, below. But if you desire a more traditional dark blue like Emma Roberts, below, glide on Dior Diorshow gel-like Waterproof Pro Liner in Pro Navy.
