By Carla Snuggs
Independence Day is just days away, so Posh Beauty Blog has rounded up some amazing red, white, blue and gold beauty products that are sure to make you look both patriotic and POSH on the 4th of July!
For a subtle touch of sparkle, reach for Merle Norman’s Liquid Shimmer. This light reflecting liquid beautifully highlights the face with advanced HD pigment technology ($15, available at Merle Norman Studios, MerleNorman.com.
A bold and beautiful red lip is yours with Merle Norman’s Age Defying Lipcolor in Americana. Formulated with the exclusive age-defying complex, this smoothing lip color provides full, lasting color while diminishing fine lines ($15, available at Merle Norman studios, MerleNorman.com).
Turn up the heat with a smoky blue eye! Merle Norman Color Max Shadow in Cobalt provides the perfect patriotic look. Line lids with Merle Norman Age Defying Eyeliner in Sapphire for a true blue waterproof eyeliner that combines eye care with intense color ($12-14, available at Merle Norman studios, MerleNorman.com)
Get in the spirit of the holiday with OPI for Merle Norman - Custom-formulated by OPI to help celebrate Merle Norman’s all-American heritage. It features red, white and blue mini OPI Nail Lacquers. The main star is the exclusive Merle Norman OPI Nail Lacquer shade, Hussy — a ravishing red inspired by the world-renowned classic car. The set also includes OPI Nail Lacquer in Alpine Snow and Yoga-ta Get this Blue! as well as RapiDry Top Coat ($12.50, available at Merle Norman studios, MerleNorman.com ).
The 4th of July would not be complete with a burst of gold! Festive for holiday is the OROGOLD 24K collection. My faves are the OROGOLD 24K Perfecting Foundation Mousse ($98, OrogoldCosmetics.com) and the OROGOLD 24K Vitamin C Booster Facial Serum ($198, OrogoldCosmetics.com).
The OROGOLD 24K Vitamin C Facial Booster Serum is flecked with 24K gold pieces. Combined with 24K Gold, Vitamin E & C, it helps skin look youthful and bright and it has an amazing citrusy smell that I just can’t get enough of. I love that it is absorbs easily into the skin, so skin feels moisturized but not greasy. It really brightens the skin!
OROGOLD 24K Perfecting Foundation Mousse comes in 7 gorgeous shades and gives a perfect velvet finish for the 4th of July holiday. It’s formulated with Titanium Dioxide to prevent and reduce damage from the sun. I love it because you get light coverage so you can enjoy your super fun day in the sun, but it’s also long lasting and ultra-moisturizing so you don’t have to keep reapplying it. Definitely worth the splurge- treat yourself!
Fireworks, flags and so much more! Get into the Independence Day spirit with new customizable INNI nail wraps.
