Hope everyone is recovering well from St. Patty’s Day – the festive day where anything green goes! Shamrocks, green beer, green-adorned patrons, and even some green make-up looks were to be found all around Toronto yesterday. As festive as it is, true green coloured make-up is hardly flattering…on anyone! Check out the products below and learn how to make green make-up more than just a St. Patty’s Day fling:
MAC Eyeshadow in Sumptuous Olive
This neutral green coloured eyeshadow is a perfect shade for both day and night looks, and suits a wide variety of skin tones. For a light daytime look, sweep the colour all over the lid up to the browbone and blend softly into the crease. For a sultry evening look, replace your usual black eyeshadow with Sumptuous Olive for a fresh take on the classic smoky eye look.
MAC eyeshadows are consistenly well-pigmented, gliding on the skin true to the colour in the packaging. The formula is also long-lasting, but to increase its longevity, I always like to start the application with an eyeshadow base. Applying the base not only helps it to last longer, but also helps to bring out the true colour of the eyeshadow.
Tarte Eyeliner Birth of Venus
Tarte’s eyeliners are well-pigmented and glide on easily without tugging or dragging the delicate eye area. Tarte’s signature liners are also infused with “skinvigorating” ingredients which means not does this product make you look good, the ingredients of it are also good for you!
Birth of Venus is a gorgeous neutral green with depth. Apply it just to the top lashline for an easy green daytime look…or fully rim the top and bottom lashline for a smoky eye that will have others green with envy!
