American Beauty

The Americana trend is a strong look for the season and what better way to give a nod to the 4th of July celebrations than with a little red, white and blue make-up pop?

For summer days, red lips are best served in more lightweight formulas, with the Clinique Chubby in Tomato being a perfect daytime colour hit, while for evening, switch up to the more matte rich pigments of the YSL Rouge Pur Couture in Le Rouge.

Nail the trend with mix-and-match polishes, from the cobalt blue hue of the YSL La Laque Couture in Bleu Majorelle to the Clinique Nail Enamel in Call My Buff ivory tones. 

And for the colour daring, shimmer into the hazy evenings with Clinique's All About Shadows in Lagoon or for a more minimal lid, Bobbi Brown's ice white eyeshadow brick is the perfect frosting.

Don't forget to play matchy-matchy with a red, white or blue accessory or two - we're loving the Charlotte Olympia Paloma platform pump in rich satin.
