Whether or not you’re in the UK for the long weekend, there will be celebrations for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee happening around the world. And if you’re getting into the party spirit, how about trying out a jubilee-worthy makeup look with some red, white, and blue hues? While I am known for perfecting nude, skin-first makeup looks, I love getting creative with colour on occasions too. So, if you’re ready to party, try these red, white, and blue makeup products on for size.

Red Makeup Products
The obvious red to add to your street party palette is a bold red lip. You can read my post on finding the perfect red lipstick, and I’ve picked out a couple of gorgeous options for you here. If you want to get creative though, some people can pull off a rich burnt red hue on the eyelids, which can really draw attention to deep brown eyes, or make blue or green eyes pop with colour. A hint of red on the cheeks is a subtle way to work this colour into your look, too.
White Makeup Products
The easiest way to work a bright white into your makeup look is around the eyes. Try swapping your black liquid liner for a bright statement white graphic line, or be more subtle with a white pencil on the lower lash line to widen and brighten eyes. Another way to work white into your makeup look is to use a pearly white highlighter to add light to your cheek and brow bones.
Blue Makeup Products
Blue hues are perfect for this British celebration, but they’re perfect for summer in general, too, so if you find a blue eyeshadow that works for you, you’ll be wearing it all summer long. Try a smudge of pale blue on the upper lids, swap your black liner for a blue one, or even opt for a statement electric blue mascara. Of course, if you really want to turn heads, you could try a blue lipstick, too.
