We love any excuse to play around with pigment (have you seen our love of bright eyeshadow palettes?), so it’s only natural for us to take green makeup looks up a notch for St. Patrick’s Day. We challenge you to commemorate the Irish holiday (and avoid getting pinched by a leprechaun!) with these green makeup looks we love on Instagram

Ready to Shamrock ‘n’ Roll

No matter what you’re doing this St. Patrick’s Day, all eyes will be on you with this completely green makeup look by @marcieartistry. Try the versatile mix of greens in shimmers, mattes and metallics in the Urban Decay Wild Greens Eyeshadow Palette to recreate the look. (Bonus: The shades are actually green too, meaning they’re vegan and clean.)

It’s Easy Being Green

Swap out your usual black or brown mascara and brow gel for a festive brows and lashes. We recommend applying an eyelash primer like the Lancôme Cils Booster XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Primer on both areas and then dusting with a loose pigment. Here @aoife.cullen uses the Stargazer Neon Green Dust.

Emerald Isle-Inspired

Take a less traditional approach and recreate @cheriserenee’s negative space look. Instead of filling the rest of your eyelid with shadow, add lashes for a va-va-voom effect.

Lucky Charmed

Go all out with a face full of glam that screams “luck of the Irish.” The key elements to nail here are the four-leaf clover wrapped around an eyebrow, the rainbow gradient eyeshadow and the deep green cut crease.

Kiss Me, I’m Irish 

Irish or not, give this glossy lip with a festive rainbow and shamrock a try. The only thing missing? A pot of gold. The NYX Professional Makeup This Is Juice Gloss in Coconut Chill is perfect for locking in intricate details and keeping lips looking sleek.
