Fourth of July Beauty Essentials

I’m a sucker for pretty much any holiday. Give me a reason to lay out on the beach and dress up for a day and I’m there! With Fourth of July just around the corner, it gives us a chance to eat our hearts out at barbecues, star-gaze at the fireworks, and relish in what truly makes America beautiful.

Of course, with the eventful line up of events that our weekend will consist of, there are just some items we can’t afford to do without.

Here are a few beauty essentials that will not only show your patriotic spirit, but will also keep you looking flawless all day long.

  • Sunscreen

Nothing screams aging more than sun-damaged skin. Be sure to protect your skin from the rising temperatures with a great sunscreen.

  • Tinted Moisturizer

You want to look amazing in all your Instagram pictures, but never overdone. I mean, who really wants to be on the beach with a full face of makeup? Tinted moisturizers are the perfect way to give you just the right amount of coverage without the heavy feeling of foundation.

  • Nail Art

There are tons of ways to incorporate the flag with your nail art. Step out of your comfort zone for the weekend and show your nails some love with red, white, and blue polishes. Be sure to pick up Dashing Diva’s Patriotic collection of press-on and gel strip nails for a quick and easy festive manicure and pedicure. With designs retailing from $8 -$9, it’s the best way to sport your red, white and blue hassle-free, and made to withstand any holiday adventure you have planned this weekend.

  • Blue Liner

A fun way to add a pop of the flag into your beauty routine would be to add a blue liner to your look. It’s simple, yet just the right amount of pizazz you need for any event you’re at. Think you’ll mess it up? Don’t worry, it’s as simple as this video makes it look!

  • Red Lips

If you’re not truly daring at heart, 4th of July is the perfect excuse to whip out the red lippies you’ve had in hiding for so long. The key is to use a color that won’t smudge or move for the long day you have planned. Matte lippies are definitely a trend right now that’ll be perfect for this weekend. Here are a few of our favorites!

With all the fun you plan to have, your hair is the last thing you’ll want getting in your way. Make sure to use a serum, frizz control ,dry shampoo, and hair ties to keep your hair in place.

Fourth of July is one of those holidays where you never know where you’ll end up. Be sure to have a summery light scent with you at all times that you can easily use to keep you refreshed and smelling delicious all day long.
