Seeing Green: Two Makeup Looks For St. Patrick's Day

14 comments
Green is a color that is rarely given any thought in terms of makeup, so I thought I would give the color a little love in honor of St. Patrick's Day. Today, I have two different looks featuring green eyeshadows. One is a smokey green more appropriate for a party or a parade, and the other is a neutral look with a pop of green.

Because I love the dramatic, I will begin with the smokey green. This is what I would wear if I were going to a party or if I were in a St. Patrick's Day parade. Let me admit that this look is inspired by a look I saw on celebrity makeup artist, Lottie Star's, instagram. She did a green smokey eye on a client for an Oscar party that was beautiful. Here's my spin on the look!




I used the same makeup on my face and lips for both looks, so I only changed the eyes. Here's what I used for the first look!




On my face:
Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector Combination to Oily Skin Light/Medium mixed with 
tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour full coverage foundation Fair
Rimmel match Perfection Concealer Fair
Hourglass Superficial Mirage Bronzer
MAC Mineralize Blush Warm Soul

On my eyes: 
Too Faced Shadow Insurance (not pictured)
Sonia Kashuk Eye on Glamour palette - bright green on lid and white under the brows
tarte True Blood palette Moss in crease, outer corner, and smudged on the lower lash line
Milani Shadow Eyez 01 Winter White on waterline
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Zero
Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Lash Extending Treatment Mascara 01 Black

On my lips:
Dior Lipliner Pencil 169 Grege
Nyx Butter Gloss Maple Blondie

Since the first look is dark and dramatic, I decided to do a look that uses more neutral eyeshadow colors with just a pop of green on the lid.





All of the products I used on my face and lips are exactly the same for this look. I changed up the eyes and just used one eyeshadow palette.

On my eyes:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance (not pictured)
Wet n Wild Eyeshadow Palette Drinking A Glass Of Shine (Limited Edition) -White on the inner third of eyelid - Green on lid - Tan color in crease - Brown on outer corner - Light Flesh Tone under the brows
Elizabeth Arden Eye Pencil Black Brown
Benefit They're Real Mascara

I hope you all have a great St. Patrick's Day! Let me know if you have a favorite green eyeshadow and if you do a special makeup look for the holiday.

-xoxo Lauren

  1. Oooh! I really like the smokey eye! The Wet and Wild "Comfort Zone" palette has a row of nice greens that would work, too. I may just have to bust that out tomorrow! :)

    1. I really like the tarte foundation. It's long lasting and will stay put if you have oily or combination skin. The finish is matte without being too flat, so it's just right for me. Thank you so much! xoxo
