Happy July Fourth Weekend!!! Hope everyone is taking the time tomorrow to gather with family and friends and and celebrate our independence with the people you love! I wanted to share the two things I love for the holidays with you 1.) Makeup and 2.) Holiday Drinks for your guests!
Fourth of July Makeup Tips: If you are wanting a "Patriotic Look" in this summer heat make sure you use a translucent powder over your foundation to help absorb the pesky oils that the summer's humidity brings out. One I highly reccomend is Chanel's Double Perfection Powder. I am #2 but have your local Chanel representative match your color. As far as eyes go, an awesome eyeshadow primer is A MUST!!! My all time favorite is Too Face's eye Shadow Insurance!! LOVE IT! Keep the eyeshadows very neutral and maybe go as far as just using a beige or soft pearl color all over and and waterproof black liner, followed by mascara. My current favorite right now is Too Face's Lash Injection! I LOVE to make the cheeks super rosey to get that sun kissed look! Lips you have one of two choices, if you are doing a beach/pool day I would keep lips very soft maybe a soft coral lip gloss. However if you're not planning on getting wet, do it all up and rock the red lips! Go for it! It's the one day of the year to Red, White, and Shine!! Now I'm also going to give you one of my favorite drink recipies for this sparkly holiday:
Serves 2 to 4
3 cups small ice cubes
1 cup passion-fruit nectar
1/4 cup vodka
1/4 cup half and half
2 tablespoons Cointreau
1 splash orange juice
1 splas cocunut cream (optional)
Fresh passion fruit seeds for garnish
Place ice, passion-fruit nectar, vodka, half and half, Cointreau, orange juice, and coconut cream, if using, in a blender. Blend until smooth. Adjust consistency by adding more ice or juice as needed. Garnish with passion fruit seeds, and serve immediately.
ENJOY THE HOLIDAYS!!!! We will be throwing a party with friends and family at my beach house! Gianni is looking forward to day of fun in the sun! Hope everyone has a blast! Cheers to the USA!! Keep shining your positivity my sparkles!!! xoxoxoxo
