Celebrate July 4 in style with USA-inspired beauty.
With Katy Perry gracing the cover of the latest issue of Parade dressed for the Fourth of July, we thought we’d celebrate by looking at U.S.A.-inspired beauty. The holiday is all about dressing eyes, lips, nails and hair in red, white and blue. Artistic nail designs are having a moment, so rocking festive tips are a must, and decorated fireworks, flags or stars mixed with subtle glitter accents are the best way to achieve that statement. Nail decals are an easy way to get the look in half the time. Temporary tattoos in a star spangled banner design add that something extra, while bold lip tattoos scream Independence Day. Eye concepts are endless; blue mascaras and liners are daringly festive, and YouTube and Pinterest are flooded with DIY tutorials on eyes adorned in red, white and blue. Pull hair back into a braided crown and it’s time to party in the U.S.A. Happy 4th! – Madeline Farina
