St. Patrick's Day Green Makeup

We love any excuse to play around with pigment, so it’s only natural for us to take green makeup looks up a notch for St. Patrick’s Day. Although celebrating may be different this year thanks to social distancing, 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 and Roll

No matter what you’re doing this St. Patrick’s Day, all eyes will be on you with this gradient emerald green look by @makeupby_sulenny. A simple gold line created with a metallic eyeliner, like the Lancôme Drama Liqui-Pencil, adds definition to her crease while green butterfly clips in her hair finish off the look.

It’s Easy Being Green

Swap out your black or brown eyeliner for a festive green one like the NYX Professional Makeup Vivid Brights Liner in Vivid Envy for an instant wash of bright color. To make the look even bolder, we recommend applying an eyelash primer like the L’Oréal Paris Lash Paradise Mascara Primer to prep the lashes and help them appear thicker under mascara.

Lucky Charmed

Take a less traditional approach and recreate @cheriserenee’s negative space look. To achieve smooth, whimsical lines, we recommend using the Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow Stick in Freak, Mildew and Hey-O.

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 Lip Lingerie Gloss in Clear is perfect for locking in intricate details and keeping lips looking sleek.

Emerald Aisle-Inspired

Experiment with different shades of green to achieve a St. Patty’s Day look that’s all yours. We’re loving this playful neon eyeliner by @callmechim. Use Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Eyeliner Pencil in Freak to take your eye style a notch.
