Green makeup is the perfect way to show your spirit this St. Patrick’s Day. This festive color can be a bold party look or toned down for a day at the office. Incorporate green into your routine with these makeup tips and tricks.

There are tons of green eyeshadows out there to choose from, so we’ll stick with a few of our favorites. jane iredale Eye Gloss in Green Silk is perfect for the working girl. This cream shadow is a lighter shade of green with a very sheer finish.

Control the amount of color you want with glo minerals GloEye Shadow in Rain Forest. This pressed shadow is a medium green that allows for buildable color.

Create a bold party look with Colorescience Loose Eyeshadow in Shimmer Green. This glittery shadow is highly pigmented to give your look a pop of color.

Add a splash of green by lining your eyes with Mirabella Graphic Girl Magic Marker Eyeliner in So Jaded. This marker’s precise tip can create everything from a classic cat eye to a more intricate design.

If green makeup seems too intimidating, anti-redness primers offer a more subtle shade that blends into your skin. The light green tint of DermaBlend SkinPerfector Redness Reducing Primer counteracts redness for a more even skin tone. stila CC Color Correcting Stick SPF 20  also has a green core to correct redness.
