Go Green for St. Paddys!! (In style!)

By Anne Hutton Makeup & Beauty, Carlow

No need for Irish flags painted on your cheeks this year ladies! Celebrate St. Patrick's day 2012 in style with a splash of green on your eyes, nails or even funky green lips!

St. Patrick's Day hair and makeup inspiration

For a simple gorgeous green-eyed look (above), just blend green eyeshadow all over the eyelids, using a darker shade in the sockets. Then draw all around the eyes with bright green eye pencil, and smudge some green eyeshadow over it to smooth and blend. For more drama why not add some cute green stick-on jewels (available in most arts & crafts shops)
If you're feeling adventurous why not try some crazy green hairspray (or even just a streak!), available in most joke shops, some Boots, and discount stores.

To achieve funky green lips (neat and tidy!), use your brightest green eyeliner, and line the lips, filling them in too. Then just add some clear or gold lipgloss...and remember to check your teeth!
These looks can be achieved on any budget. Try Catrice (in Penneys and Dunnes Stores) for their range of earthy green eyeshadows and nail polishes that won't break the bank (above). MAC do fantastic green eye pigments and slick kohl pencils (pictured above is MAC Forever Green), and also pictured above is Lancome's ultra long lasting, crease free eyeshadow pallet no.104 - perfect colours for Paddy's Day.

Enjoy experimenting, and Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
