Many of us reach for neutral makeup colors on a day-to-day basis but St. Patrick’s Day is the perfect time to break out that vibrant green shade. Whether you want to go subtle or all out, here are some of our favorite green-tinted makeup products in honor of the holiday.
For a pretty and understated look, start with the lashes. blinc Mascara in Dark Green gives just a hint of color without looking overdone. Plus, this mascara creates longer, fuller lashes by forming a tube over each individual hair. The formula is resistant to smudging, flaking and water so it will last all through the day and night.
For a more intense burst of green, you can create a bold cat eye with your liner. Mirabella Graphic Girl Magic Marker Eyeliner in Jade Green gives the intense color of a liquid liner without the difficult application. This felt-tipped applicator glides on easily and works perfectly on the upper or lower lash lines.
If you want to use a green shade as an accent rather than the main event, use an eyeshadow palette such as glo minerals GloEye Shadow Trio in Palm. You can use the subtle pink and cream shadows in this trio as bases and then apply the green shade to the crease and outer V of the lid. The dash of green will be noticeable but not overwhelming.
To go all out with your St. Patrick’s Day look, all you need is some glitter. You can apply jane iredale 24K Gold Dust Minis in the shades Green and Aquamarine to create an intense look. Apply a primer to the lid and then use a flat brush to pack the glitter onto the lid. This will help prevent fallout and keep your look intact all day long.
