Show off your patriotic style with this retro eyeshadow design.

The Fourth of July is a fun way to show off your patriotic style, and why not do it with a little retro flair. Here is a wearable look that can be paired with any color scheme to make a flirty statement.

Step 1: Using an angled brush and NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk, map out the outline for our shape. Draw a line extending out from the lower lash line, then connecting right above the crease.

Step 2: Fill in the entire lid to create a base.

Step 3: Apply any white eyeshadow (such as M.A.C. White Frost) from the inner corner halfway to the lid. This will set the cream base to prevent it from running and creasing.

Step 4: Use a pencil brush for more precision, and apply a blue eyeshadow at the corner and fade it into the white. To help blend the contrasting colors together, use a light hand while fading the blue into the white. At this point, to perfect the shape of the cut crease use a Q-tip or a small concealer brush and outline the edges to make them sharp and perfect.

Step 5: Apply white liner in the waterline and rim the top lid with a cat liner.

Step 6: Apply mascara and lashes.

Step 7: To finish off the look, apply a red lip. To make it even more festive apply a red glitter on top of your lipstick.
