Irish or not, St. Patty’s Day is all about having fun, celebrating with friends and family, and spotting a leprechaun or two 🙂
Whether you’re hitting the parade, having a couple of green drinks or if you just want to avoid getting pinched, here are some amazing ideas to get your green on for St. Patty’s Day this year.
1. Green Streaks in Your Hair
Not everyone wants to don a green wig or (yikes) temporarily dye their hair green, but putting in a couple of green streaks is a fun, yet colorful way to dress up for St. Patty’s Day. Put a couple of streaks in the front of your hair and twist it back in a loose braid.
2. Duo-Toned Green Eye Shadow
Want to dress up your eyes in green? Try a duo-tone green shadow. Use a lighter green shade in your eye’s inner corners, giving you a wide and bright look. Brush on a darker green on the upper eye lid, to give a dramatic effect.
3. The Quick Fix
If you’re making a dash for the door, and forgot to put on your favorite green shirt or eyeshadow, don’t worry! You can still avoid getting pinched by strangers in the street. Wrap a pretty piece of ribbon or even a buckle-free belt around your noggin as a headband for a festive, yet sophisticated look.
4. French Manicure with a Twist
Want a subtle look, that’s also gorgeous. Try a twist with your French manicure. This you can either DIY or just let your manicurist take care of it. Paint your nails as you would with a French manicure, but instead of painting on white tips, try dark green tips instead. Throw on a four-leaf clover glitter ring for extra fun!
5. Green and Glitter
Want to really up your St. Patty’s Day makeup game? Take a green eyeliner and paint your eyebrows green! Find some green glitter and add it on after you’ve filled in your brows with green to make them shiny and sparkly. Take it a step further by using the green eye-liner on your rims, smudging and applying green eye shadow all over for a dramatic effect. Top off the look with black mascara.
6. Lips Green Enough to Kiss
Want green lips, but didn’t save any over from Halloween? Don’t fret! Many stores will be carrying green lipstick to help all of us dress it up for the St. Patty’s Day festivities. When picking your favorite shade of green, make sure you pick a lipstick that has SPF and aloe vera to keep your tender skin smooth and protected.
