The color green color is often associated with life, energy and of course, nature. If you don't want to get pinched or get abducted by a Leprechaun on the 17th of March, it's the time to start thinking of your St. Patrick's Day makeup look! From wearable light green to smoking emerald and shimmering green - here's the most magical and appealing green makeup looks we think you might want to wear this St. Patrick's Day holiday.
If you are going for a light, everyday version of this St. Patrick's Day, try one of these wearable green looks. These green looks aren't as bold and loud as a typical green smoky but a more subtle combination that's easier to wear. Combine muted shades of green with pastel pink, peach and taupe shades - basically your everyday neutrals, for a more wearable look. Add the tiniest amount of a deep dark shade such as charcoal, grey and chocolate brown to the outer corners for an evening smoky look.
HEAVY SMOKY GREEN:
Wearing a heavy smoky eye with bold eyeliner is no easy task especially when it involves a dark color palette such as smoky black. Instead, go for a matte shade such as deep green and apply to the lids, staying below the crease. Feather out the edges for a seamless look with a shade lighter or using a neutral beige or taupe always works, too.
Green, just like every other shade, comes in an array of different shades and textures with everything from cool to warm tones. So not every shade of green will beautifully emphasize your eye color and complexion, so you need to find an ideal shade of green that will actually match your face. Try going for a versatile shade like forest, seaweed and sage green. These universally flattering shades look great on everybody!
SHIMMERS & GLITTER:
These appealing shimmering and sparkling eye looks are perfect for partying and other evening occasions. Prime eyelids with your fave long-lasting eyeshadow primer, fill in your eyebrows and apply an eyeshadow base on the lids. Touch the inner corners of your eyes, the brow bone and the center of the lid with a luminous golden pigment to make your eyes pop. You can also use glitter primer to secure green pigments and glitter on the lids.
Refreshing and bright shades of green like lime green, apple green and cooling green-gray shades are the most festive colors and they perfectly fit the celebratory mood of St. Patrick's Day. Combine with complimentary pastels like sky blue and lavender into one makeup look for a pop of color. Don't forget to blend for the perfect bright-eyed gradient look.
Dilute your green St. Patty's makeup with more bright eyeshadow colors such as purples, blues, yellows and reds. Use them all together to create the ultimate colorful party look. To make your brights even more vivid, being with a matte white eyeshadow base such as this OG-cult fave! From a neon blend to an intense cut crease, there's so many different ways to rock a colorful look.
What look will you be rocking this St. Patty's Day?
