Happy St Patrick's Day!

What is St Patrick's Day without a slightly over the top green eye look??? No fun, that's what!
I don't really like how I look with so much green on my eyes.  For me green is more of an accent color, therefore I only dress up my eyes in green once a year.
 I'm not 100% sure if I have any Irish in me but there is evidence that points to my last name on my father's side being a variation of an Irish name that could have been Americanized during immigration. So...yay for maybe being part Irish!

I used only green products on my eyes except for my mascara.  It was fun but this is definitely a once a year only FOTD.

To achieve this glorious green look I started by taking my Electric Palette and placing Freak all over my lid. Then I took Fringe and applied it in my crease and inner corner to create a halo effect. I also lightly blended Fringe and Freak under my eye with Freak being closer to my inner corner. Next I finally got to use Ulta's precision liquid liner in Forest Green (which is seems they are already discontinued...that was fast.  Probably for good reason, they aren't that great) and used it to line my lid and create a small wing.  Finally I grabbed my NYX liquid crystal liner in Crystal Jade to add a line of green glitter to my lower lashline.  


Also take notice to my super cute shamrock earrings. I have no idea where I got them but without fail I have worn them once a year for St Patrick's Day for the past 5 years.
On my lips is Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipstick in Mystic Plum.

Whether you actually celebrate St. Patrick's Day or just use it as an excuse to wear green with crazy green makeup, I hope you have a happy one!


  1. I really like this look. The dark lip matches well with the green eyes.
