How to Wear Green Makeup and Green Hair for St. Patrick's Day How to Wear Green Makeup and Green Hair for St. Patrick's Day How to Wear Green Makeup and Green Hair for St. Patrick's Day

With tons of festivities to partake in on St. Patrick’s Day, it’s no wonder you want to get in on the shamrock-heavy holiday. And what better day to experiment with green makeup and a green hair color than St. Paddy’s Day? After all, green makeup and hair are big beauty trends right now. Of course, we understand if you’re a little intimidated when it comes to rocking this color—it can be quite bold, after all. But trust us: You can pull it off! Without further ado, allow us to introduce you to three of our favorite St. Patrick’s Day-inspired hair and makeup looks.

1. GREEN ombré hair with GOLD GLITTER ROOTS

If you’ve seen any of the latest hair color and beauty trends, then you’re no stranger to ombré hair or glitter. What looks like it’d be a complicated runway-only ‘do is actually really simple to bring to life sans the help of a pro colorist. Sure, this colorful hairstyle fits the bill for St. Paddy’s Day, but as soon as you switch up the the colors, you’ll quickly find it’s perfect for any occasion where you want to add a little extra sparkle to your mane.

What you’ll need:

Rat tail comb

L'Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color in Green

L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel

Gold glitter

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Color your hair. Use a semi-permanent hair color (which will fade in 4-8 shampoos) to create a green ombré effect.

Step 2: Part your hair. Once you’re done color your hair, use a rat tail comb to part your hair down the center or to the side—whichever you prefer.

Step 3: Apply hair gel. Using a dye brush, spread some of the hair gel to your part extending about an inch in every direction.

Step 4: Sprinkle on glitter. Before the hair gel completely dries, sprinkle gold glitter directly overtop of your roots to create your shimmering shamrock look.

2. EMERALD + GOLD SMOKY EYE

We’re suckers for a smoky eye—and any chance we get to bring new colors into the picture, we’re game. Want to wear green and gold eye makeup like nobody’s business? Here’s how to do it!

What you’ll need:

L'Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Kabuki Blender

L'Oréal Paris True Match™ Super-Blendable Multi-Use Concealer

Eye shadow primer

L'Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Iced Latte

L'Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Golden Emerald

L'Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner in Black

 L'Oréal Paris Voluminous X Fiber Mascara

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Fill in your brows. Before diving directly into your green and gold eye makeup look, start off by framing your soon-to-be glam stare. First, fill in your brows, then dab on a tiny bit of concealer to help accentuate your brow shape while blending out any imperfections.

Step 2: Use an eye shadow primer. Apply an eye shadow primer onto your lids to help make your smoky eye go on smoothly and wear evenly.

Step 3: Start your smoky eye at the inner corner of your eye. Gently brush gold eye shadow onto your lid starting from your inner corners and working your way to the middle.

Step 4: Blend from the outside corner in. Next, use green eye shadow to trace the outside of your eye and blend it up past your crease for the appearance of a slightly elongated eye. Be sure to blend the gold and green in the middle of your eye to create a natural-looking fade rather than a line of harsh demarcation.

Step 5: Add color under your eyes. Apply a bit more of the green eye shadow along your lower lash line to fully tie your bold eye together.

Step 6: Create a wing. Now that you have a super-bold eye shadow look, don’t stop there! To add extra definition to your eyes, outline your top lash line with pencil eyeliner. Be sure to flick your line up at the end to create a gentle lift that can make your eyes appear more open.

Step 7: Top your look off with volumizing mascara. Apply a coat of fiber mascara. Voila!

3. GREEN LIPSTICK

There’s no denying it: Green lips have been making a bold statement across runways. Sure, lining your lips with green might seem a tad intimidating, but why not take a risk?

What you’ll need:

L'Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Face Scrub

Lip balm

Clear wax lip liner

Green lipstick

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Exfoliate your lips. Slough off dead skin cells with a scrub to help ensure smooth lipstick application.

Step 2: Swipe on a lip balm. After scrubbing your pout, apply a hydrating lip balm.

Step 3: Line your lips with a clear wax lip liner. This can help prevent your color from bleeding outside the lines.

Step 4: Apply your green lipstick. It’s time for the main show. Get your green lipstick on. Talk about fierce!
