Four Easy St. Patrick’s Day Looks!

27

St. Patrick’s Day is coming up and while I’m not planning to leave my house, I thought I’d share some makeup inspo for those of you that are. Green is one of my absolute favorite eyeshadow colors and I’ve created a ton of looks using it. I decided to choose four recent ones that are really simple and use different tones of green. All three palettes that I’m going to mention are very affordable but of course, if you don’t own them, just use whatever you have. I’ll show you the palettes I used first and then get into the looks!

For this look and the next, I used the essence Dancing Green Eyeshadow Palette. This mini palette is only $4.00 and contains my favorite forest greens. This type of look is an easy way to incorporate that green color but still be “wearable.”

  1. I set my primer with a satin cream (You Can Dance).
  2. I blended a matte taupe brown (Watch That Scene) into my crease and applied it on the outermost part of my lid.
  3. I applied a metallic olive toned gold (Feel The Beat) over the rest of my lid.
  4. I applied a metallic olive toned silver (Only Seventeen) in my inner corner and on my brow bone.
  5. I lined my water line with a matte forest green (Night is Young).
  6. I smudged a metallic forest green (Rock Music) on my lower lash line.

For this look, I once again used the essence Dancing Green Eyeshadow Palette. I wanted to really focus on those beautiful greens and I was SO impressed. I did use the e.l.f. Mint Melt Eyeshadow Stick in Ice Creame in my inner corner. 

  1. I set my primer with a satin cream (You Can Dance).
  2. I blended a matte forest green (Night is Young) into my crease and smudged it on my lower lash line.
  3. I applied a metallic forest green (Rock Music) on to my lid.
  4. I used my finger to lightly tap a metallic olive toned silver (Only Seventeen) on top of the metallic forest green (Rock Music); over the inner half of my lid.
  5. I lined my water line with a matte taupe brown (Watch That Scene). 

If olive toned greens are more your thing, the Colourpop The Child Eyeshadow Palette is a good choice. Of the three palettes I used, this one is the most expensive at $16.00. I did have some issues with this palette, which you can see in my review that I linked, so I advise waiting for it to go on sale.  

  1. I set my primer with a matte cream, which this palette does not contain.
  2. I blended a matte olive (Little Frog) into my crease.
  3. I deepened the crease with a matte deep olive (Float Your Crib) and I also smudged this shade on my lower lash line.
  4. I applied a metallic moss green (Sipping Soup) on my lid and in my water line.
  5. I applied a metallic silver (Right Hand Mando) in the inner corner.
  6. I applied a metallic opal (Precious Cargo) on my brow bone.

Last, is this gold and green look using the Profusion Citrine Eyeshadow Palette and the L.A. Girl Shockwave Eyeliner in Dragon. I also used the L.A. Girl Shockwave Lip Liner in Gingerbread as an eyeliner on my water line. The palette is $6.00 and both liners are $4.49. This look is similar to the first one but brighter and warmer toned.  

  1. I set my primer with a matte cream, which this palette does not contain.
  2. I blended a matte light brown (Tea) into my crease.
  3. I applied a metallic golden bronze (Taboo) all over my lid.
  4. I applied a metallic light gold (Goal Digger) in my inner corner and on my brow bone.
  5. I applied a brown eyeliner on my water line and smudged a green eyeliner on my lower lash line.
