St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday known for its fun festivities centered around celebrating Irish culture, equipped with parades, dancing, and a whole lot of green. That makes it the perfect day to experiment with green eye makeup. There are endless ways to create stunning green makeup looks using eyeshadows, liners, and mascara. If you’re in need of some inspiration, check out our round-up of a few easy to-do eye-catching looks and affordable L'Oréal Paris products you can use to help achieve them. From bright shimmery shades to deep and sultry hues, keep reading to see how to make green work for you. 

St. Patrick’s Day-Inspired Eye Makeup Looks 

Look #1: All-Over Green Lids

Putting a St. Patrick’s Day makeup look together doesn’t have to be complicated. In fact, it can be as simple as sporting all-over green lids. Start off by blending a deep green shimmery eyeshadow into your crease using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Golden Emerald. Then apply a lighter green shade like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Gilded Envy onto the center of your lids and blend it out towards the outer corners of your eyelids. Use a small tapered eyeshadow brush and apply a bit more of the deep green eyeshadow to your lower lash line to fully tie the look together. Finish off, by coating your lashes with the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara in Blackest Black for extra drama.

Look #2: Shimmery Emerald And Gold Smokey Eye

We’re suckers for a smokey eye and we’re game for any chance we get to bring new colors to the look. Start by sweeping on a medium brown shadow like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Acro-Matte all over your crease to start your green and gold smokey eye. Then apply a deep shimmery green eyeshadow to the center of the lids and blend it out towards the outer corner of the eyelids. Use a small eyeshadow brush to tap on a yellow-gold toned shadow, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Eternal Sunshine, into the inner corners. Be sure to blend the green and gold where they meet to create a natural-looking fade rather than a harsh line of demarcation. You can also swipe on a few coats of the L’Oréal Paris Air Volume Mega Mascara, Lightweight Mega Volume Washable in Blackest Black for a pop of bold lashes to add to the look. 

Look #3: Thin Green Winged Eyeliner 

Not sure if green eyeshadow is your thing? For a slightly subtler St. Patrick’s Day eye makeup look, consider adding a pop of green via a green eyeliner. For this look, you’ll need to keep your lids simple to let your eyeliner stand out. Sweep on a shimmery champagne-colored eyeshadow like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Iced Latte all across your lids. Then use a green liner, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up To 24hr Pencil Eyeliner in Forest Green or the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up To 24hr Pencil Eyeliner in Ivy to create a thin wing. If you want, you can gently smudge out the liner with a small eyeshadow brush for a more sultry look. Swipe on a few coats of mascara to boost your lashes, and your look will be complete! 

Look #4: Voluminous Green Lashes 

Try swapping your regular black mascara for a more festive color like green to celebrate the Irish holiday. Start by applying an eyelash primer like the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara Primer/Base to help prep your lashes and help them appear thicker. Then layer on a few coats of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Washable Bold Eye Mascara in Deep Green to make your lashes look thicker and voluminous. Its formula also includes ceramide-R to help condition the lashes, making them stronger and feel softer.

Complete The Look With A Beautiful Lip  

After finishing up your eye and face makeup, it’s time to move on to the lips. You can choose to go for bold lips or pair it with a neutral lip color that will let your eyes be the center of attention. Whether you prefer lipstick or lip gloss, there are plenty of options to choose from. We recommend picking out a shade from the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Les Nus by Colour Riche Intense Nude Lipstick line for a nude-toned lipstick. For a glossy finish, reach for your favorite color from the L’Oréal Paris Brilliant Signature Shiny Lip Stain Lipstick line. If you prefer a matte formula, pick a shade from the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Creamy Matte Lipstick, Rich Hydration collection. 

Editor’s Tip: When applying a lip product, make sure to prep your lips. We recommend exfoliating your lips with a scrub to remove dead skin cells that may cause your lip color to look patchy. Reach for a gentle sugar scrub that is also hydrating, such as the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Cocoa Scrub, which contains coconut oil and cocoa butter for healthier, softer lips.
