We have already covered our favorite all American hairstyles in our previous article. In this blog we’ve put together some of our favorite natural and classic makeup looks, that will perfectly complete your all American look!
All American Makeup: Red Lips
Taylor Swift, America’s Princess, knows that red lips are the way to go! That red bold lip, classic thing is something we love. Red lips instantly take a look to the next level! There are so many options, go orangey-red, blue-red, or dark red. Bright, vivid reds are perfect for summer events, and deep, vampy reds are great for winter and holiday events. Find your perfect red and stick with it for any occasion with a stunning red prom dress!
All American Makeup: Outlined Eye
Michelle Obama always looks polished! Get her look with nude lip gloss, and softly outlining your eyes with a complementing color. Pick a color that goes with your complexion and dress, such as black, brown or navy, and outline the top and bottom of your eyes with eyeliner. Go back with matching shadow and a thin brush, and blend it out so there aren’t any harsh lines. Do this all around your eye, and clean up if it gets too thick. Don’t forget mascara, and some highlight!
All American Makeup: Glossy Lips
Keep it classically simple with some light pink, glossy lips! Show off those pearly whites with some pale pink lips, and a touch of gloss on top for a kissable look. Go big with the mascara – big lashes make those eyes stand out, along with the pink lips, is the perfect pair! This is a classic look perfect for everyday and for a special event with formal dresses! Play up your beautiful natural features with a bit of lip gloss and some mascara.
All American Makeup: Bold Brows
Bold brows are essential to a complete, polished look. Don’t overfill, or you won’t have the natural look that is apart of the all American style. Follow your natural shape, and softly fill in where it is sparse. Comb together and ensure they stay in place with some clear mascara!
All American Makeup: Soft Makeup
For a soft, natural all American makeup look, avoid bold and harsh colors. Blend everything out very well. Go for pearly or glossy lips, and keep them moisturized. As far as eyes, mascara and soft smokey eyeshadow are the ways to go. Highlight your inner corners so that your bright eyes stand out! Use some soft bronzer and blush to accent your natural, beautiful features. Lastly, highlight with some highlighter so you gently glow.
Focus on keeping your makeup simple, and enhancing your natural beauty! Anything too bold or too dark will take away from the classic, put-together look you’re going for. Opt for some low-maintenance, natural makeup for your next event to get that all American, simple look!
