My ‘Lucky’ Makeup Look of the Day! St. Patricks Day

Happy Saint Patrick's day everyone, I hope you all are having a very lucky day! For Saint Patricks Day I decided to incorporate some green into my everyday makeup look. Instead of doing a full on green eyeshadow look tutorial, I decided to do something that is a little more wearable and gives a hint of green so it is more suited for everyday wear. I went with a natural eye with very little eyeshadow (only a crease shade to be exact) with thick eyeliner on the top. For under my lashline I added a bright green shade and towards the inner corners and for my inner highlight I used a gold shade! I kept my cheeks very soft and went with a bright red lip! You could obviously use any red lip to go with this eyeshadow look but I went with red because on the colour wheel red is across from green which means they complement each other. This is more than likely the reason that Christmas has red and green paired together!

  1. Love how the green is subtle yet it brings the whole look together! xx Rena Kiss and Make Up

  2. I love how that turned out. I've only used gel once and it was a disastrous event for my eyes. I got it all over the place. It was an expensive one too (though I can't recall the exact brand).
