7 Green Eyeshadow Looks For When Green Slogan Tees Aren't Your Thing

Get out of our brown smokey eye rut.

Stop drawing shamrocks on your cheeks, immediately. 

As wild as it sounds, today is St. Patrick’s Day.

Of course, among mass toilet paper outages and a directive to stay home, today's holiday will feel different this year — but that doesn't mean it's been forgotten. In addition to wearing your finest green pyjamas, bingeing your favourite Irish TV shows on Netflix and sipping on a delicious Irish inspired cocktail, another way to get into the festive spirit is to try some green eyeshadow.

While the hue may not be an everyday staple, it is a great way to mix up your beauty routine, as just a smidge of jade eyeliner can turn a traditional smoky eye into an exceptionally gorgeous piece of art.

If, like us, you too are stuck in a rut of neutral palettes, take St. Patrick's Day (and your extra free time) to test drive colour on your lids, be it in the form of bright, pastel mint, or sumptuous forest shade. Keep scrolling for the best green eyeshadow looks for St Patrick's Day PLUS the products you'll need to recreate them. 

BRIGHT LINES

If you're into St. Patrick's day, but you're also, like, cool, pay a subtle(ish) nod to the holiday with a thick swipe of lime liner and leave the rest of your makeup neutral and clean.

Nope, the Euphoria craze isn't going away anytime soon, and I'm completely fine with that. I mean, look how cool this flushed-cheek, green-eye combo is. Recreate it for St. Patrick's Day by building up layers of shade A1 from the Norvina Pro Pigment palette volume 3 by Anastasia Beverly Hills on the inner corners of your eyes.

Okay, this makeup looks intimidating, but I promise it's not. Just draw your regular old cat-eye with black liquid eyeliner, then, once it dries, trace the inner half with a green cream eyeliner, gently smudging the two colours together in the middle with your finger.

All that shimmers

Blend a mint cream eyeshadow over your lid and up to your crease, forming a cat-eye shape, then tap on some shimmery, green shadow to make it really pop.
