Can you believe it? July is already here and the 4th of July is right around the corner and on a Wednesday. Let’s repeat that and all groan together. The 4th is on a Wednesday, so we all get 1 day off in the middle of the week. Most of Europe – 1, America – 0. Each Independence Day, you can usually find me smack dab in the heart of the Mojave Desert sipping on a few cocktails watching the 4th of July Fireworks, happy that makeup and cute outfits are not needed. Really, the only thing I ever need is a festive bikini and amazing sunglasses. Since leap year has ruined my usual plans, I’ve spent the last week brainstorming amazing 4th of July makeup ideas to help the fact that I must wear clothes this holiday. To the good stuff! Here are 3 trendy beauty ideas to usher in another USA birthday in style.

One of the hottest beauty trends of the season is to temporarily color your locks a pastel shade. I’ve seen a lot of pink, lavender and purple on ladies these days. Instead of taking the color plunge on the day to day, this is the perfect time to add a little ‘wild-child’ into that mane. Try using Streekers temporary hair color in blue or red. Take the applicator wand and paint just a few streaks on a couple 1 inch strands in the mid-section of your hair. This will create a perky pop of color without going overboard.

If you don’t want to wash your hair more than once in a week, you can always turn to your nails. Red, white and blue nails are a no-brainer to pair with any drink in hand! Give everyone on Pinterest a run for their money by creating a gorgeous polka-dot design or build your own color block mani.

Dare I say it? The most classic makeup trend alive… the red lip. If there’s any appropriate occasion for this look, it’s this one. Since most of us will be enjoying beverages and BBQ, I prefer to go with a red lip stain instead of traditional lipstick. I’ll be wearing 3 Custom Color Specialists Lip and Cheek Stain in Rose which is a poppy red, perfect for my Independence Day pout.

How will you celebrate the 4th of July this Wednesday?
