Happy Cinco de Mayo- a day that means more than tequila and Coronas! Once upon a time, some unlikely Mexican forces took down a little man with a big army, and muchos bebidos were served in celebration! Today, we may not think of ole defeated Napoleon III, but we thank your great nation for a great excuse to drink margaritas. In honor of this Mexican holiday, here are my favorite green, white, and red makeup products so you can get festive like the flag while you sip your cerveza.
Don’t Get Envious Over My Greens
I had a surprisingly difficult time narrowing down my favorite green products! If you know me, you’ll know it’s a color that I quite adore (even tho benjamins are now blue). From eyeshadow, to concealer (bye bye blemish), to liner, or glitter- even lippies- there’s a lot you can do with this color. My favorite green eyeshadow is from a small indie brand, Johnny Concert Glamour, Lovebud is a shimmery forest green. If I need a bit of neon in my day, I always grab Xenon from Melt Cosmetics! And I gotta give a shoutout to Kylie with the Ironic lippie– I’m dying to get my lips on this shade.
Don’t Be the Evil Queen You can Be Snow White
Turn up your cute, sweet side by popping some white in your look! Another color you can’t live without in your makeup kit. If you’re trying to make your shadows pop or your eyes larger, grab Nyx Milk for you waterline or eyeshadow base. Make sure you keep a good white shadow on hand, too, like Sugarpill Tako (best white shadow I’ve ever used!). Add some fun accents to your makeup with a white liquid liner like the Nyx version!
Get Spicy with Some Red Hot
Turn up the heat with these favorite red products! You’ll be lookin’ spicy and catching some eyes with this bold pop of color. If sexy red lips are your style, then try our LiveGlam KissMe lippie in Goals from January. Red lips aren’t the only way to go bold. Warm up your eyeshadow with some red tones to bring out green or blue eyes! Check out Kylie Burgundy palette for different red-ish hues to match your day, or grab Sugarpill Love+ for a serious punch of color!
Enjoy your margaritas (responsibly) this Cinco de Mayo and turn up for Mexico! Enjoy some of these green, white, and red products while you enjoy that tequila! Let me know some of your favorite traditions!
