You might have often painted your face with tricolour while in school, but If you’re not sure about using paint on your face, we have the perfect Independence day makeup idea for you. Start with a quick no-makeup makeup look and enhance the natural colour of your lips by applying a tinted lip balm. Next, dampen your fingers with a setting spray and then dip them in orange, white, and green eyeshadows. Swipe your fingers horizontally across your cheeks to add a touch of patriotism to your makeup. The setting spray not only keeps these colours on your cheeks for longer but also makes them appear more vibrant. You can go a step further by pairing your look with a navy blue bindi, painting your nails with tricolour, and choosing a classic all-white outfit!
For every Independence Day makeup idea to stand out or look perfect, you need a base makeup to support it. The first step of your base makeup should be using a primer to create a smooth base that keeps your makeup in place all day. Then, apply foundation to create an even complexion and highlight certain parts of your face like your eye contours and the top of your cheekbones with a concealer. You can use the Maybelline Foundation Finder tool to find the perfect concealer shade match and use a shade or two lighter to create the brightening effect. If you wish to add some natural colour to your face, apply some powdered blush to the apples of your cheeks.
