Ah, the 4th of July. It represents America, the Declaration of Independence, and — if you’re us — some fantastic beauty picks! If you need to look like Miss America this July 4th weekend, then we have some fantastic products for you. Keep reading for more details!
There’s nothing we love more on July 4th than a good barbecue, good friends — and some good beauty! These beauty finds will make sure your skin is looking fresh, there’s not a drop of sweat in sight, and that you’re sporting red, white, and blue! Make sure you’re looking patriotic on the 4th by checking out our gallery below.
Fourth Of July Beauty Basics
As we all know, beauty starts with the basics. To make sure you’re looking your best this 4th of July weekend, make sure your skin is in tip-top shape! We love using Alba Botanica Pore Purifying Gel to make sure our skin is looking bright and glowing. This gel peel strips away toxins and lifts dead skin with it’s 6% concentration of Alpha Hydroxy Acids and Fruit Acids and leaves skin without any dullness. We’re also big fans of Yes to Blueberries Ultra Hydrating Body Wash, which is formulated to soothe and hydrate dry skin so you’ll have no flaky patches at that July 4th pool party.
To make sure you aren’t breaking a sweat in the heat, use Secret Outlast Deodorant. The clear gel won’t leave any white marks on that american flag tank top!
Your Best Fourth Of July Hair
As the 4th of July usually involves some sweltering heat, you’ll need to make sure your hair is in check. We’re obsessed with these stars-and-stripes themed hair ties from Kitsch! Since they’re made with stretchy-soft elastic, they won’t leave any dents in you hair as you switch up styles. If you’re on the beach and your hair goes from surfer-girl to Cousin It, use the patriotic The Wet Brush: Stars & Stripes Edition. The flexible bristles detangle hair without tears or breakage.
If you’re feeling especially passionate about our founding father’s, go a little wild and use Anatasia Hypercolor Brow And Hair Powder to color the tips (or even whole sections) of your hair! The powder washes right out, so don’t worry about suddenly having performed an accidental dye job.
No post about 4th of July beauty would be complete without some makeup! To display your love of our nation, try Julep Modern Essentials 3-piece Nail Wardrobe and Pure Ice Nail Polish to create some American-themed nail art. And as July 4th is the obvious time to try a red lip, we suggest Bite Beauty Lush Fruit Lip Gloss in Spice. The orange-red shade is so bright, everyone will be looking at your lips — not the fireworks. We also love bareMinerals Lip Quickie Collection which gives you two color options in one compact package.
And finally, between the cocktails, refresh and rehydrate with Liquiteria Cold Pressed Juices in Watermelon and Coconut. Not only are these juices red and white, but they’re delicious and nutritious as well.
