Tomorrow is 4th of July, and that means it’s time to BBQ! It’s one of my favourite things about summer – just relaxing and putting some food on the grill for a low-key get together with family & friends
Even though a BBQ is casual, that doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun with your makeup…go ahead, try something new & eye-catching!

For a low-key summer BBQ, I love to choose one feature to enhance and leave the rest very natural – so easy & quick (so you can get back to eating/socializing ASAP )
NAILS: Try a bright shade with a glimmery finish for maximum impact
LIPS & CHEEKS: Go for a rosy-raspberry colour that creates a cute & coordinated look in an instant
SKIN: Apply a luminous primer all over before makeup application and also use as a highlighter as an ultra-glowy finishing touch
EYES: Smudge a shimmery teal liner around the eyes for a mesmerizing gaze, or just underneath the eye for a quick shot of colour
Now that you’ve got the makeup taken care of, a signature BBQ dish is in order! My favourite is below.

This watermelon, basil & feta salad is AMAZING – there’s never any leftovers! Here’s how I like to make it:
Cut 1 small seedless watermelon into cubes. Add the following to the watermelon in a large bowl: 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, 1/2 cup fresh basil cut into strips, 1/2 cup roasted pine nuts, 1 cup crumbled feta cheese, plus balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt & pepper to taste. Toss to combine all ingredients & enjoy!
Happy 4th of July!!! What is your favourite way to celebrate?
