Face of the Day: Going Green for St. Patrick’s Day

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to the Irish, those with Irish ancestry (such as myself) and those who are Irish for only one day a year!

Today is about celebrating, having fun, possibly drinking green beer (if you’re into that, unlike me), eating corned beef and cabbage and soda bread and decking yourself out in green from head to toe.

You know me. I find any excuse to do a themed makeup look. And just like past years, I’ve totally gone green for St. Patrick’s Day. It’s a tradition!

fotd03172013-01I’ve ended up wearing the only green shirt in my wardrobe: this green Quidditch Team shirt from 6DollarShirts.com. Good thing it’s cute! And I have my hair in braids, so the whole situation is doubly cute.

I created this smoky green eye shadow look with a couple of different eye shadows. The black is Urban Decay Eye Shadow in Perversion and the green is from the NYX 5 Color Shadow Caribbean Collection palette in I Dream of St. Lucia.  I created the lighter color at the inside corner of my eye by combining the green and the Sephora Eye Shadow in Aspen Summit.

It turned out pretty awesome and festive! What do you think?

And how are you celebrating St. Patrick’s Day? Are you wearing green?
