Makeup for the 4th of July

Each year, many women wonder what style of makeup they should wear on the 4th of July. As a glam girl, you want to look classy, but also fun.


The number one mistake I see women making is combining red lips with blue, smoky eyes. This can look too heavy or too 80’s. Unless you want to go completely festive and decorate your face with sparkles, flags and stars, I suggest you go for the classic pin up look that is characterized by eyeliner and red lips. If you REALLY want to incorporate blue, replace the black eyeliner with blue or just use a little blue on the lower lid. For lips, try to wear a red lipstick with an orange undertone for a more playful and in-season look, versus a retro pin-up look with a darker shade of red.


Personally, I prefer to keep my face classic and incorporate the red, white and blue theme into my fashion.

I've always had a huge passion for fashion and glamour, but sometimes felt both could cross an invisible line and become too "cheesy". I wanted to combine the two and create a GUIDE for women who want to become glamourous, smart and classy with a very feminine style. Working in Hollywood for a decade helped me understand what women,and men, find beautiful and attractive. More importantly it helped me gain perspective that everyone can be beautiful and attractive, regardless of what you look like. Ah the magic of Hollywood! Yet, being a model and a beauty specialist were only two avenues of my expertise. With an exceptionally well developed three dimensional vision and a degree in Business, Marketing and Graphic Design, I was on my way to create the world I wanted to live in. Viva Glam Magazine is on a rise to become the one and only guide every woman will ever need. "Stay Beautiful!"
