I'll take any excuse to celebrate a long weekend, which is why Fourth of July is one of my favorite summertime holidays. How can you not get excited about a day off spent watching fireworks and eating soft serve ice cream on the boardwalk? This year, I'm headed to South Jersey to catch up with some old friends over BBQs and beachside hangouts.
For the casual itinerary that's in store this weekend, there's no place for fussy makeup. So, I'm going for a chic and easy smoky eye that would be perfect for your own outdoor cookout. And just because it's Independence Day doesn't mean you have to get cheesy with your makeup. Click on for the glitter-free look I'm wearing this weekend.
