EASY, WEARABLE St. Pat’s Day Green Eyes☘️☘️

Hello!

In the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, I felt inspired to look through my makeup collection and put together an easy, wearable green eye look.

I am definitely not a person that wears a lot of color on my eyes, I keep it pretty neutral. I’m in the process of trying to get out of my comfort zone and create looks that are a little bit more creative and colorful. The goal was to put together a look that is super approachable and achievable for everyone. The end result kind of had Tinker Bell vibes which was totally unexpected and pretty!

Here’s the products needed: 

[Note: I try not to over-emphasize one particular palette, I think it inspires creativity to pull from different sources to customize your own look using things you might already own!] 

  • Your favorite matte bronzer [I used Marc Jacobs O!Mega Bronzer Coconut Perfect Tan–I LOVE and highly recommend]:Start with a matte bronzer. Using wind-shield wiper motion all over the crease and slightly above, build up color using a fluffy blending brush. The goal here is to create some dimension to your crease, using the bronzer as your transition shade. Don’t worry about being precise with this, its ok if you get color on your lid.
    • Next, go back in with the bronzer and gently tap (using soft patting motions) the bronzer to your outer crease with a a more defined, precise crease brush to further help define your eye and add even more dimension to your look.
    • Finally, use a clean blending brush to smooth out any harsh lines.
  • Optional Extra Step: Use a dark hunter/olive green shade to even further darken and add dimension to your eye by patting to outer crease. Use your bronzer to blend it all in and eliminate harsh lines. I used the Natasha Denona Pallet #8 with the shade “Dark Sepia” for this —again, this step totally optional. You can stop with the bronzer and have a beautiful look. If you’re interested, I’ll list other great dark green shades from other palettes you may own– I know ND is a splurge! Message me with questions about this.
      • Great alternative pallets I own with dark greens:
        • Too Faced Sweet Peach and Too Faced Chocolate Bar both have great dark greens
        • Makeup Revolution, Reloaded Basic Mattes has a green that would work–it just requires some building up!
        • ABH Sultry Pallet 
  • For the lid: ColourPop’s Super Shock Shadow in the shade “IRL” The last step for this look is to pat on this cream eye shadow shade to the lid, using a flat sided brush or your finger for more pigmentation.
    • “IRL” is a super gorgeous, unique shade that is described as a green-yellow/bronze duochrome.
    • (PSA: ColourPop.com is having a limited time site-wide sale–Everything is 20% at the moment!!)Get “IRL” here: Colourpop.com
    • Alternatively, you can use the green shade “Bombshell” in the Persona Identity Eye Shadow Palette (an absolute must-have!!) to achieve a very similar look. Love, love, LOVE this pallet.Get that pallet here: Ulta.com
  • Finally: Curl those lashes and apply mascara I really wanted the emphasis for this look to be on the green colors, so I decided to skip eyeliner (I have small eyes so liner tends to take color away)
    • Mascara really finishes off the look!
      • I love using the L’Oreal Lash Paradise for this
    • If you are feeling super glam and fabulous, add some falsies!

 

Here’s my final look: Same eye, different lighting
