St. Patrick’s Day Eyeshadow Look

14 Mar

We loved the eye look we created for Saint Patrick’s Day last year so much we decided to share it with you again this year!

With St. Patrick’s Day this weekend, we’ve decided to embrace our green side and create a makeup look for the celebration that is fun and fabulous. We love themed holidays, a day where we can dress up and have a good time, and this makeup look is perfect to accent any green outfit.

The Steps

1. Apply shimmery white eyeshadow to your entire eyelid. We love Polyester Bride by Urban Decay.

2. Brush on gold shimmery eyeshadow from your lash line to your crease. Draw a thin line using the same eyeshadow along your bottom lash line. We love Golden Crown by M.A.C.

3. Using an eyeshadow brush, apply an emerald green eyeshadow, sweeping the color onto your eyelid, continuing past the outer corner of your eye, towards your eyebrow. We love Swimming by M.A.C.

4. Use the same emerald green eyeshadow and draw a thick line under your eye, from the center to the outer edge.

5. Apply glittery false eyelashes to your upper lash line and then line over the lashes with black eyeliner. We love Guilty Pleasure by NYX and Liquid Eye Liner by M.A.C.

6. Apply clover-shaped gemstone stickers and small silver stone stickers around the outer corner of your eyes. You can purchase these from any craft store.

We hope you enjoy this look and have a fantastic St. Patrick’s Day! Leave us a comment and let us know!

    This is super cute, I love it!
    I just finished painting my nails green and was searching for a fun green eye shadow look. For my nails I used Wet N Wild Carribean Frost + Milani’s 3D Holographic Lacquer in Hi Tech as a top coat. They look AMAZING. I’m very impressed that two drugstore brands could look like a pro manicure. For my eyes, I bought two different green shades from Mattify Cosmetics: Irish Eyes and Pixie Dust. Think they’ll compliment eachother well and I’ll be able to duplicate the look you have above. Minus the adorable shamrock glitters..just because I didn’t plan far enough ahead to buy them! But anyways thanks for this post!
