Spring 2014: St. Patty's Day Makeup Look

It's St. Patrick's Day on the 17th! I'm not really one for celebrating this day but since I've seen a lot of people do makeup looks for it, I thought I might do one too to get into the festivities. As the title above says, it's part of my Spring 2014 makeup series. I was thinking of putting it up separately as just a makeup look but then, thinking how I used all this bright greens, I just settled for adding it on to the series. This look is a kinda dramatic though but as always, you can tone it down.

I was hoping to do the step by step tutorial, the one which I've been doing lately, where I show you through photos where you should exactly place the shadows but I'm pressed for time because I'm really busy lately,  I'll just settle for a quick run down of the items I used and how I used them. ^^


Graymelin Seven Tattoo Eyebrow in Dark Brown


  • NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk - Apply Milk all over the lid as a base and to give more vibrance to the colorful shadows, blend out with your finger.
  • e.l.f. Ultimate Eyeshadow Palette
    • Using the a pastel bright green shadow (1), pack all over the lid with a flat shadow brush.
    • Use a darker shade of green (2) on the outer half of the lid, carefully blending it in with the first shadow.
    • To create that defined wing with the next shadow, you may either use a scotch tape and place it on the lower lash line and remove it after placing the shade, or use a makeup wipe or Q-tip with a makeup remover to clean up the edges.
    • Take a brown/green shadow (3), bring it farther out of the corner of your eye and create a wing. Blend the edges of the shadow carefully along the crease with a clean brush.
    • With the tip of the flat shader brush, take shade 3 and connect it to the outer corner of the bottom lash line.
    • The next shadow is a a blue/green shade (4), apply it next to the middle part of the lower lash line, blending it with shade 3 on the outer corner. 
  • NYX Ultra Pearl Mania in Lime Green - With a wet eyeliner brush or angled brush, take the Lime Green pigment and apply it to the inner corner and inner half of the bottom lash line for a bright pop.
  • NYX Slide On Eyeliner in Jet Black - Tightline and apply on the waterline.
  • Graymelin Control Sharp Liner Waterproof in Black - Line the eyes, and wing dramatically. Also make the eyes pointy and bird like by extending the liquid liner on the inner corner of the eye and connecting it to the eyeliner on the waterline. Remember that using this method makes the eyes smaller and squinty looking so if you don't like that look just line the eyes as you normally do.
  • Maybelline Volum' Express Waterproof Colossal Cat Eyes Mascara - Curl the lashes and apply mascara.
  • Red Cherry 747S False Lashes - Apply false lashes for a fierce look.

That's my St. Patty's Day makeup look! this is perfect for a Mardi Gras look as well. Have fun experimenting and if you are in the mood to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with green makeup, tweet or tag me your Ur Made Up Face on Twitter and Instagram! ^^ Twitter&Instagram: @urhappybunnie

  1. Beautiful eye look!! I love green eye looks and this one looks gorgeous on you!

  2. I love it, joanne! I think this look gives a really great feeling of St. Patrick's day without looking too bright or too green. Some of us can't pull it off, you see. :) I'm especially in love with how clean you did the gradient on the outmost part. I certainly couldn't do it like that. :)
    Thank you for sharing this look! (I might need to pick up an e.l.f. palette now)

    1. Hi Elina! Glad you enjoyed this look! I got the e.l.f. palette as a gift from my god sister and I love using it for doing bright makeup looks. Some of the shadows can be a bit chalky but it's great when you have a white base. :)

      Oh and for the blending of the shadows on the outer part, just go back and forth with the brush you used for both shades and it will help out with the blending. :)

  3. love!

  4. You're right!! This look is so festive and is so perfect for St. Patty's and Mardi Gras!! I'm such an amateur when it comes to eye shadow, thanks for sharing your tips!!

  5. I also don't really celebrate St.Patrick's day but this makeup look is gorgeous! I like really how you emphasized different areas of your eyes using different green colours.

    1. Aww. Thanks! I used to think that my eyes are just too small but I kinda like how it is because it's easy to do different eye looks. ^^
