9 Red-and-White Beauty Looks to Wear Whilst Watching the World Cup Semifinal

Updated 07/12/18

Since we can no longer chat on about the unpredictable weather (it's hot and sunny, okay), our attention has turned to football. This week we're all feeling a bit patriotic thanks to England's football team and the prospect of a World Cup victory. Since we're not really football-shirt wearers, for the semifinal match, we'll be showing our support for England with some patriotic red-and-white beauty looks. Any excuse to experiment with makeup, right? Take inspiration from the six looks below, and then shop products that scream "Go England!" We're not here to jinx anything, but we're really hoping you'll get more than just 90 minutes' worth of use out of them.

Add a touch of gloss to your lip look for extra shine, and draw a subtle white liner over your lids so you can feel extra patriotic.

A slick of red liner looks seriously chic, and leaving your lips bare means you won't need to retouch your makeup whilst sipping your beer.

Pair white liner with a red lip. Use a little white liner in your Cupid's bow to highlight your pout.

Not keen on a full, bold red-lip look? Tone it down by swiping a pale pink lipstick along your bottom lip to get an ombre effect.

We'd totally wear this liner look well after the final whistle has blown.

A dusting of white shadow and a precise red lip nods to the England flag so perfectly.

This fun nail-art look feels patriotic thanks to its colours, but it has way more longevity than being too literal and shellac-ing your nails with the English flag.
