5 Tips for Barbeque-Chic Make-Up

Labor Day weekend is coming up quickly and we all know what that means: time to spend with family and friends over good food, good drinks, and a fond farewell to summer.

For many Labor Day is that last time we get to wear white jeans and flip flops. There will be so many photos taken and you’ll see everyone you know in the neighborhood or at the lake. Think cookouts, bonfires, and sunbathing. This is a weekend we suggest putting some thought into.

That’s why we are giving you the guide to the perfect chic look for your upcoming Labor Day party. Summertime makeup should be natural and focus on your suntanned skin and dewy glow. That being said, there are a few simple additions of color we suggest for the perfect Fourth of July makeup application

  1. Bold red lip

    There is nothing more vibrant than a bold red lip. We suggest pairing it with simple eye makeup and mascara. You do not want to look like you’ve got the entire American flag on your face, but rather just the simple touches. Think MAC’s RubyWoo or Kylie Cosmetic’s Mary Jo K shade.

A matte lip is probably the best formula as you’ll be eating and drinking and may go a while without reapplying.

2. Bold blue lip

If a bright red is still too similar to what you’d wear to the office, you might kick it up a notch with a bright blue lip. A blue lipstick doesn’t have to remind you of your childhood Halloween or gothic days. Blue lips can be stunning when applied in shades that are good for your skin. This is also a look we would suggest pairing with minimal other colors. Let the blue do the talking. We suggest adding a loose side braid and short shorts!

3. Add some glitter

Glitter is a fun surprise to those at your party. Too much and you risk looking like a disco ball, but when applied strategically, you will be Instagram perfect. Add just a few glitter stars on your cheeks and near the outside corners of your eyes! This is super popular this year. You’ll be right on target with it.

4. Blue liner

If you are looking for a lighter lip but a bold eye, blue eyeliner will be a chic and patriotic look with a shimmer shadow. We recommend a cat eye and bold mascara or perhaps false lashes. Don’t forget to bring extra glue. It could be a long night.

5. Highlight

No matter what your preferred lip, shadow, or mascara situation is, the final touch should always be highlight. Summer is for glowing, friends. Highlight is always the answer in the summertime and Labor Day is no exception.

We love the shade Hippo by Colourpop or the Aurora Glow Kit by Anastasia Beverly Hills. Both will ensure your face is the best spark of the night.

Have fun at your parties don’t and forget to look and feel your best.
