Independence Day Makeup Looks That Are Guaranteed To Make Heads Turn!

When you’re given only three colours to work with, your creativity can feel a little stifled. Lucky for you, we’ve scoured Instagram to compile a guide to quintessentially chic Independence day makeup looks to try, with no obvious flag designs in sight.

A swipe of punchy orange lipstick and an inventive take on the green eyeshadow is perf to spice up your glam this Independence day. Just begin by creating a luminous base. To create those bold brows, begin by brushing your hair with a spoolie. Then, use a powder with a small angled brush to fill any gaps.  Prime your eyelids with primer to set the rest of the eye makeup products up for success. Next, apply a wash of iridescent green shadow across the eyelids. Coat your lashes in mascara. Apply a rust orange lipstick to complete the Independence day makeup look. 

MyGlamm Recommends: Powder Magic Eyeshadow Pencil - Aquamarine

This eyeshadow pencil will allow you to create dramatic or natural eyeshadow looks with ease and precision. 

Spotlight Illuminating Liquid - Stardust

If you love a liquid highlighter, this is the highlighter to call on. It feels undetectable, and the glow factor is buildable, super wearable, and totally believable. Beauty mavens praise it for exactly that, noting that it’s perfect for everyday use.

2. Green Liner To Turn Heads

Green liquid eyeliner is the unexpected go-to eye makeup trend for this year. Try this makeup for Independence day and you are sure to rake in compliments. Prep the skin with a rich moisturiser and buff a radiant-finish foundation all over with a damp sponge. You could also mix a few drops of priming oil into your foundation for added glow. Apply a slim stroke of a green liner. With a powder bronzer, warm up your complexion, focusing on the areas where the sun would naturally hit. Apply a cream highlighter on the cheeks and high points of the face, using your fingers to pat and press the product. Then, apply rosy cream blush on the apple of your cheeks, and blend it upwards towards the temple. Finally, prep your lips. Grab a matte brown lipstick and liner duo. Focus the liner on the outer corner of your lips and fill it in with nude lipstick.


MyGlamm Recommends: Tinted Perfection Brightening Banana Primer 

This one is a true multi-tasker and a cult-favourite for all good reasons. The multi-action balmy formula instantly blurs pores and reduces excess oil so you get your base in place on a silky-smooth canvas. The tinted formula will prolong your makeup and give an instant brightness boost and there’s a subtle hint of yellow to revive dull, tired skin. We just love it!

LIT Liquid Matte Lipstick - RBOMB

When lipstick stays put through a three-course meal, you know it’s worth stockpiling. This lipstick is truly one you can trust not to smudge, fade, or flake. 


MyGlamm LIT Matte Eyeliner Pencil

Yass is a greyish green shade. Little bit sass, a little bit badass—this is the perfect shade for the unapologetic heartbreakers.

3. Inner Corner Pop To Make A Statement

The concept here is simple: add a pop of colour to the inner corner of your eye and get ready to turn heads. Just grab your favourite orange hue and apply it to the inner corner of your eyes for a trendy Independence day makeup look. All you need to do is give your face a 2-minute massage with your go-to creamy moisturizer. Then, apply a layer of primer followed by your foundation. Fill your brows for A+ arches. Take a neon orange eyeshadow over a precise brush and apply it to the inner corner of your eyes. Dap a few dots of cream blush on the apple of your cheeks and blend, try to blend all the harsh edges before the product dries out. Apply a liquid highlighter to the high point of your face including your cheekbones and the bridge of your nose.

MyGlamm Recommends: Chisel It Contour Kit - Face Value

4. Floating Liner

If done right, even a slim stroke of liner can make a very big impact – take a cue from Camila Cabello. Prep your base using primer and a foundation. Dab some concealer on areas that need more coverage. Take an orange eyeliner and trace it as a slimline just below your brows. Add some blush on the apple of your cheeks and complete the Independence day makeup look by applying a peach nude lipstick.

MyGlamm Recommends: MyGlamm LIT Brow Definer Pencil

Goodbye bad brows, hello definition! Pro eyebrows in a jiffy – no pressure, not if you’ve got the LIT Brow Definer Pencil by MyGlamm. 

5. Bleed Blue

Let your eyes do the talking. There’s nothing like bold blue eyes - It’s fuss-free yet fashion-forward. Grab an electric blue eyeshadow and apply it sparingly all over your lid - a light wash is all you need. Load the same eyeshadow on a pencil brush and apply it along the lower lash line. Complete the Independence day makeup look by applying some mascara.

MyGlamm Recommends: Twist It Mascara

NGL, but it’s pretty tough to find a natural mascara that’s also waterproof. This product has everything we love about mascaras - it will curl and lengthen your lashes and give it a nice, clump-free volume that stays put no matter what! Also, you’ll never see the dreaded mascara goop in the corner of the eye that Chandler Bing complained about.

Pose HD Lipstick Nude Pink

You cannot go wrong with this legendary lipstick formula - the line has a perfect nude lipstick for everyone.

This Independence day makeup look is straight-up art. If you’ve been considering trying orange eye makeup, now is the time to do it. Use an eye primer and apply it all over your lids. Firstly, apply a darker orange transition shade on the outer crease of your eyes to define your eye sockets. Then, apply a lighter orange shadow all over your lids and on the inner corners. Complete the look by applying a cat-eyeliner. Stick on a pair of falsies if you are exacting!
