St. Patrick’s Day Makeup Looks to Rock the Holiday

Go Green on St. Paddy’s Day

We used to love wearing green on St. Paddy’s Day when we were in elementary school and continued wearing it up until we reached high school, until, finally, we outgrew both the color and the tradition.

As we started experimenting with makeup, we told ourselves that there were few looks we could create that wouldn’t be tacky. Green can be a hard color to rock sometimes, but with the help of these tutorials, you can definitely rock it!

Check out these tasteful, even beautiful, St. Patrick’s Day makeup looks you can do to celebrate the Irish (if only for a day) spirit in you!

1. Manny Mua’s Olive Smokey Eye

Manny brings the drama with this powerful olive smokey eye that’s perfect for a St. Paddy’s date or lucky charm-fueled drinking binge.

I really like this one because the smokey eye isn’t too loud and the olive eye shadow is a perfect take on St. Patrick’s day eye makeup.

2. Rupaul’s Drag Race-Inspired Green Spring Makeup

Nikkie’s green spring makeup is hitting two birds with one stone here. Not only is spring just around the corner, but this bright neon green eye makeup will also be a great look for St. Paddy’s Day!

3. Carli Bybel’s Pop of Green Makeup Tutorial

We love this beautiful, yet subtle makeup look. As we all know, the color green is the name of the game on St. Patrick’s Day and this pop of green eye makeup is just the perfect look!

4. Dark Smokey Green Arab-Inspired Makeup

6. Green & Yellow Smokey Eye Makeup Inspo

Isn’t this green and yellow eyeshadow combo just divine? Of course, we love wearing green and yellow for spring. But this bright look is perfect for a daytime pub crawl or family get-together on St. Patrick’s Day as well.

7. Emerald Green Smokey Eye

Whoever said green eyeshadow is only for fair-skinned women has got it all wrong. This beautiful makeup tutorial for darker skin tones is the perfect testament to green’s versatility. That emerald smokey eye is beautiful!

8. Neutral Neon Green Makeup Look

We liked Carli Bybel’s pop of green eye makeup earlier, but Carli used a darker green shade (which isn’t for everyone).

So for those who don’t want to commit to a 100% green look and wants brighter eyes, this makeup tutorial is the perfect neutral neon look.

Matte makeup is one of the hottest trends to take the beauty world by storm.

And if you’re looking to stay on trend for the holiday, you can keep your eye makeup shimmered but let the lips slay the matte look. That olive matte lipstick is an absolute show-stopper!

12. Glittered Green Eyeliner Makeup Look

Not a fan of matte eyeshadow? Then go for green eyeshadow and glitters! Actually, some might think that wearing glitters can be over-the-top, but not with this one.

15. Carli Bybel’s Deep Teal Makeup Tutorial

If green really isn’t your color, stay festive by wearing a similar color such as teal or aquamarine. These colors are a blend of greens and blues and are more pleasing to the eyes than a pure green shade.
