Face of the Day: Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

It’s that time of year again. Time for some corned beef and green colored food, clothes and makeup.

That’s right, it’s St. Patrick’s Day. Since my family is Irish (and German), we really like this holiday. In the past, we even marched in the St. Patrick’s Day parade in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Though there’s no parade for us this year, that doesn’t mean we aren’t celebrating.

And, to do my part, I’ve covered myself  in a whole lot of green. Today’s makeup look is evidence of that.


I like this year’s St. Patrick’s Day look a lot better than last year. It’s more dramatic and has better blending and technique.

And yeah, I’m wearing some weird green headband thing. Wanna make something of it? I’ll fight you. It’s the Irish spirit.

fotd031711-02My eyes are featuring quite a few different eye shadows. Most of the colors, including two shades of green and a brown (for adding smoke to  the crease) came from the Elite Pro Cosmetics 88 Eye Shadow Palette. Then, I used MAC Eye Shadow in Chrome Yellow on the lid below the crease, with Sephora Eye Shadow in Aspen Summit over it. Then, I used Revlon Matte Eye Shadow in Vintage Lace at the inside corner of my eye and up around to underneath my eyebrow.

I opted for blue for the liner. Because I’m a rebel. So I used the Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen in Black Blue on the top and bottom, with some Maybelline the Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara in Glam Black for good measure.

I’m all set!

I’m hanging out with my family tonight to eat corned beef (but no cabbage, because it’s ewwy). What are you doing today to celebrate being Irish (even if you’re not really Irish)?
