St. Patrick’s Day typically involves wearing green everything, so make sure you’re decked out from hand-to-toe!
Paint each finger and toenail with a vibrant green color—the brighter the better.
Follow with polish infused with glitter or confetti-like pieces in metallic green shades to accent certain nails, or go all out by coating each nail in festive sparkle.
This St. Paddy’s Day lip look involves a green and gold ombre effect that resembles a pot of gold. Mix a matte green shade and a gold shimmering topper for treasure-inspired lips.
Apply a dark ivy green color all over your lips and let dry.
Pat on a golden glitter lip topper formula to the center of your pout for a smile that’s good as gold found at the end of the rainbow.
Rainbows symbolize wealth and fortune in Irish history—and of course good luck, if you spot one. The best way for people to see a rainbow on St. Patrick’s Day? Create one on your eye.
Using an angled brush, softly line your eyes with a neon green eyeshadow. Apply the shade on your upper lash line and wing outward. Smudge onto your lower lash line.
Then, add multi-colored individual lashes to your natural strands for instant rainbow eyes.
Add green glitter to your eyes, brows, hair—basically everywhere and I guarantee you won’t be pinched. Using a precision applicator and glitter adhesive, create fun shapes, like hearts, stars, or even shamrocks, if you’re feeling super artistic.
Dip a detail brush into a water-resistant glitter base and add to your features or draw desired designs.
Add green glitter and you’re good to go celebrate the luckiest day of the year!
