4th of July Makeup

My 4th of July makeup complete with twinkling silver stars from The Born Pretty Store

I went for a red, white and blue makeup to go to an ironic party that me and my close friends have, I say ironic because we aren't American or in America. For dinner we had tacos and the table decorations were red and blue napkins on a white table cloth and we drunk delicious Mojitos because they were Castro's favoutie drink to add more irony. 

For the makeup, I pulled out the juicy Royal Sugar pigment from Sugarpill as a blisteringly bright blue eyeliner that made my camera go crazy! The lid is Sugarpill Tiara and Eye Kandy sprinkles in Confetti and I applied Tako to the brow bone and Velocity for the crease and lower lid. To complete the colour theme I chose Lime Crime Retrofuturist lipstick

I felt the look wasn't complete or festive enough, so I retrieved my Duo lash glue and proceeded to stick these fun aluminium stars I bought in an assorted set from Born Pretty Store to my cheek bone and also added some smaller sequin stars I got from around them.

I ended up with a very star spangled makeup that could work for a colourful pin-up look or nautical style, even with the stars!

If you love the look of these stars for manicures or makeup, check out Born Pretty Store and don't forget to use the coupon code MIHW10 at checkout for 10% off anything you order.
