There's no law that enforces a dress code on Canada Day, but we're all for a subtle touch of patriotism. And with July 1st quickly approaching, you're probably trying to figure out how you're going to spend the day – or more importantly, how you're going to dress up and tailor your beauty routine to show your national pride. Take part in the holiday with anything from low-key nail art with Canadian flags, Canadian-coloured French tips, or a simple red and white colour pattern.
If you're feeling a little more in-the-spirit, you can pull out that red lipstick you've been waiting to try on, or sprinkle your eye lids with a little red and white shimmery accents. And if you're feeling extra daring, you can move the Canada Day party to your hair, opting for red and white accents, highlights or a full-on dye job – the choice is yours!

The easiest way to celebrate Canada Day and show your patriotism? Top your red and white look off with a bright red lip that will give even the Canadian flag a run for its money. Keep the rest of your look neutral, opting for minimal eye makeup besides maybe a hint of mascara to keep the focus on the red and let your lips do all of the talking!
If you aren't a lipstick person, you can show your love for this beautiful country in other ways, like through your eyes! Use a shimmery red shadow and gently sweep the colour across the outer corners of your eyes. Then, use a shimmery white shadow and dot it in the inner corners, and slightly outwards to meet the red shadow. Use a shadow brush to blend the two together where they meet, creating a patriotic look that doesn't resemble the makeup of a clown!
And if you'd really like to take your beauty routine to the next level this Canada Day, you can play up your hair with red and white coloured highlights, single streaks, or an head full of temporary dye. If you already have red hair – you're in luck! Try getting in the spirit by accessorizing your red locks with a pretty white bow, headband, or bandana!
How will you get in the spirit this Canada Day?
