Fourth of July Inspired Makeup feat. Thrive Causemetics

Red and blue is a color combination I believe everybody finds most intriguing. I know I sure do. They simply pair well together and I was blessed to get asked to collaborate with Thrive Causemetics, a brand I so much adore, for this past July 4th, 2017. They have a bundle of the products I used here. that you should check out. Each and every product works amazing because they’re definitely luxury quality for a great price. If you visit their Instagram page here, you’ll be sure to find me! To tell you more about Thrive, “Thrive Causemetics is Beauty with a Purpose: for every product you purchase, we donate one to empower a woman thriving through cancer or domestic violence. We believe changing the world starts with a single ingredient, and that’s why we create vegan, 100% cruelty-free formulas containing proven ingredients without the use of parabens, sulfates, or toxins,” it stands for everything I love.

Needless to say, I’m sure you’re here oozing for makeup details. So, below, I have put together a list of brands/products used to achieve this look on the go. I did half of it while driving and the other half at my desk. I truly hope you enjoy! (all with * mean you can see & shop specific product below)
