Going green for St. Paddy’s Day is a must in our makeup book. Because what’s the fun in going out for some green beers if you don’t look the part? Whether your St. Paddy’s style never goes beyond ONE clover-colored accent piece or you’re covered in green from head-to-toe (the beads, head gear, tutu and green feather boa!), MDC is going to prep you for the O’Paddy party of your life!

Irish Inspired Eyes

If just a hint of green is more your celebration style, coat your long lashes in NYX Color Mascara in Mint — but if you prefer to go ALL out for St. Paddy’s Day, these Shu Uemura False Eyelashes in Green Folklore are sure to catch the attention of some Irish boys! Shadow is another great way to show off your St. Paddy pride! Add some shimmer to your lids or create a cool green cat eye like this.

Product Recommendations: Giorgio Armani Eye Tint in Emeraude, Lancôme Color Design Infinite 24H in Tremendous Turquoise, Maybelline Eye Studio Master Duo 2-in-1 Glossy Liquid Liner in Polished Green, YSL Effet Faux Cils Crème D’Eyeliner in Jade Black

St. Patrick’s Pout

While you might initially think this is weird (maaaybe — some of you makeup-lovers are more adventurous than us!) when else could you rock a green lippie and still fit in? None other than St. Paddy’s Day, that’s for sure! Go big or go home and try a bold green lipstick like NYX Wicked Lippies in Risque or a toned-down version like NYX Macaron Lippies in Pistachio for the ultimate green beer sipping experience.

Clover Colored Nails

Okay, so maybe green makeup is a little extreme for you…or maybe it isn’t and you want to just keep the green train going and use it in every way possible. Painting your digits is the perfect St. Paddy’s accessory (that of course, goes with all of your other accessories like the socks, clothes, bows, pot o’gold… you get the picture).

Product Recommendations: essie in Shake Your $$ Maker, Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer Polkadots Collection in Drops of Jade, L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail in New Money
