Hey friends! Happy 4th! Your 4th of July celebrations have probably already begun, but I thought I’d give you a quick roundup of outfit and lipstick options that you’ll need for this year’s picnics, BBQs, and of course, fireworks!
Hard to admit this as an American, but I actually don’t own anything with an American flag on it! Now that I think about it, for the last few 4th of July celebrations, I have worn blue and/or white and incorporated a red lip to complete my red, white, and blue look. I’ll actually be doing the same thing this year because I’m obsessed with a red lip!
Here is a sneak peek of one of my outfits I have planned for the weekend: off the shoulder blue top by Romwe
and white pants by Joe’s Jeans. I absolutely love the detail on this top

If you also love a red lip and don’t have your 4th outfit planned yet, I have some blue & white ootd suggestions for you incorporating summer’s most stylish trends: off the shoulder, blue & white stripes, two piece outfits, sun dresses with a top ruffle, etc., all from Romwe
Ok! So now that you’ve got your outfit down, it’s time for my favorite part…the red lip! Here are some of my favorite new matte reds I have recently tried out:
- Lancôme’s Matte Shaker in “Kiss Me Cherie”
I love this one because it’s super bright and long lasting. It’s my new favorite lipstick of the season, so I’ll actually be wearing this one for the 4th of July rooftop party I’m going to! 🙂
2. Estée Lauder’s Pure Color Envy Matte Sculpting Lipstick
This lipstick by Estée Lauder is very smooth and gives you an elegant look. For a red lip, I prefer a lip stain because I hate reapplying, but this lipstick is fabulous and I strongly suggest using this color as the red in your red, white and blue look!
3. Kylie Lip Kit in “22”
Of course I can’t leave out a Kyle Lip Kit on this list! It look me a long time to get my hands on “22,” but the wait was so worth it. I love her lip kits because they are long lasting. I feel like I rarely have to reapply throughout the night. These sought-after kits will always be my go-to lipsticks!
There you have it! I hope you enjoyed my not-so-basic guide to your 4th of July outfit. Now it’s time for BBQ and fireworks! Enjoy 🙂
