Happy St. Patrick's Day! This holiday always makes me smile. Not only because all holidays are fun, but because on St. Patrick's Day (many years ago...) my husband and I met for the first time. So, it always makes me sentimental. In the past, we would head to a restaurant to celebrate or we would have a little themed dinner at home. Since the pandemic, our celebrations have been much more low-key, though we still try to make it special. This year? It will be another low-key celebration. Even though restrictions are starting to lift where I live, the idea of going out to a restaurant is totally overwhelming to me at this point. I'm still trying to stay inside as much as possible and limit interactions with others. Maybe one day that will change, but for now, inside it is. That means it is my job to bring St. Patrick's Day into our home. We don't have a lot of decorations, but I put up what we have, and even planned out some St. Patrick's Day makeup. Ready to take a peek at this holiday inspired look?
As you can see from the products above, there are some really beautiful colours to choose from. From the eyeshadow palette, the idea was to make good use of those greens. There is a medium green, a deeper green, and a gorgeous sparkly green shade. Not to mention lots of really lovely warm colours. To create my St. Patrick's Day inspired makeup look, I used the shade Sage Advice on the inner portion of the lid, Like a Moss on the outer portion of the lid, and then Beleaf to deepen the crease. Then there was a bit of Slow Burn through the crease and a bit of the gold shade, Glamping for an extra little pop! On the cheeks, the Too Faced bronze shade was applied with a bit of the blush on the cheeks. To add in even more green (it is St. Patrick's Day, after all) there was an emerald highlighter on top. Then all of the essentials, like liner, mascara, and a brown pencil. The Kylie Cosmetics liquid lipstick finished off this holiday inspired makeup look.
Makeup is a fun way to celebrate the holiday. And it is nice to tap into my Irish roots with a little green makeup! However you choose to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, here is hoping that you have a wonderful and special time.
Will you celebrate St. Patrick's Day today? What do you think of this makeup look?
