St. Patrick's Day Inspired FOTD

A week from today is St. Patrick's Day! So I thought I'd play around and come up with a green look. The pictures of the look itself came out looking a little blurry/washed out. Sorry about that! It's overcast today and I had to use my flash.

I used: MAC Paint Pot in Painterly, NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Horse Raddish, Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Zero, Smashbox Bionic mascara, MAC Vanilla Pigment, and my Urban Decay Book of Shadows Vol. 3.

Using Horse Raddish as a base, it makes the green shades stand out more. I used Kush on the lid, Loaded in the outer corner and crease, and Suspect as the transition color. Vanilla pigment was used as my brow highlight and to brighten my inner corner.

When I do colorful eye looks, I always go with a nude lip. In this case, I used MAC Viva Glam Gaga 2 lipstick and lipglass duo.

I definitely think I'll be wearing this look if I go out anywhere next Thursday! Nice and festive! :) If I do, I'll try to coincide it with an OOTD post. What are your plans for the holiday? Does your city do anything special to celebrate?

Beautiful! VG Gaga 2 looks gorgeous on you! I'm tempted, but I think they would look horrible on me!

@Christine- Yay! I rarely have plans. As a matter of fact, all I'm doing is going to Kelsey's with my husband and MIL. Yay for 1/2 price wing night! Haha! I'm such a party animal... ;)

@Antonia- Whoohoo! Let me know if you try it out or if you change something around. :)

@Linh- I understand. Some are saying it won't work on them. With the natural pigmentation of my lips, it works for me. I think this could work for others slightly more with a pinkish gloss over it and using a lip brush to apply it.
