We've never been the kind of gals to go all crazy with the patriotic spirit on July 4. Don't get us wrong, we love this country and what it stands for -- the land where dreams are realized, no matter where you come from. Sounds hokey, but roll with us on this one.

Despite the fact that you won't catch us at a 4th of July parade wearing red, white and blue, waving American flags in our hands (or worse, with American flags painted on our cheeks -- let's leave that to the kiddos, shall we?), we're all for supporting the U.S.A. And that's why this Independence Day, when we're wearing summer's hottest trends to our friends' annual barbecues (and our local 4th of July parades), we're going to reach for some of these American beauty products.

Merle Norman Cosmetics
Norman founded the brand in the kitchen of her Santa Monica home in 1931. And although the company has significantly grown since then, it's still family-owned and every part of the product is manufactured in the U.S.

Try Merle Norman's Age Defying + Lipcolor, $15, in Americana for an instant dose of patriotism in a classic red shade.

Rosebud Perfume Company
Possibly one of the oldest American beauty brands to date, Rosebud Perfume Company began in the quaint town of Woodsboro, Maryland, in 1895. Pharmacist George F. Smith created Smith's Rosebud Salve, $6, to soothe minor cuts and cracked lips.

The cult classic is still the company's best-seller, and is also available in strawberry, brambleberry, minted rose, mocha rose and rose/mandarin.

Tweezerman International
Tweezerman launched in 1980 with a single product -- the Splintertweeze -- and it was an instant best-seller. Two years later, the company introduced the Tweezerman Slant, $22, to the beauty world. It's still the company's No. 1 seller.

Estée Lauder
Perhaps the most well-known American beauty brand, the company was officially established with just four skin care products by Estée and her husband, Joseph Lauder, in 1946. Esté is also the woman behind the creation of Clinique, Aramis, Prescriptives, Lab Series Skincare for Men and Origins. Today, Estée's children and grandchildren are involved with the ever-growing beauty brand that gave us anti-aging staples like Advanced Night Repair serum, $92.
