Happy St. Patrick’s Day to everyone celebrating tomorrow. Although I don’t celebrate for religious reasons sometimes one can’t help but get caught up in the festivities. It seems that the entire city has gone green and even the CN Tower here in Toronto is illuminated in spectacular green light. The pubs here will be packed as crowds adorned in green hats and clovers chug their favorite drinks and celebrate well into the night.
My great grandmother was from Ireland. Unfortunately I never had the pleasure of meeting her but I am told she was a beautiful blonde with a kind heart. Although my grandmother was born with the red hair of her heritage she never really celebrated this holiday. I however decided to have some fun and commemorate the day by creating a bold green makeup look.
I used the Coastal Scents 120 palette (two).
To create this ultra green look I used a combination of the darker greens, light greens and a bit of black. This palette is great to play around with because it has so many colors. You can mix, match and blend to create many interesting look which is why it is one of my favorites.
On my lips I went all out using the green Xpress liner and eye shadow pencil by Ruby Kisses. I purchased this pencil at a beauty supply store and I love the formula because it is creamy enough to use as lipstick. For those who are not as comfortable with the green lips you can pair the look with subtle lipstick.
I hope this look inspires you to try something bold this St. Patrick's Day.
Enjoy the Guinness, have fun and be safe!
