St. Patrick’s Day Green Makeup Looks 

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. 


Get the Look:

Step 1. 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


Step 2. 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. 


Step 3. 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. 


Step 4. Finish off by coating your lashes with the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara in Blackest Black for extra drama.


2. Shimmery Emerald And Gold Smokey Eye

We’re suckers for a smokey eye and game for any chance we get to bring new colors to the look. 


Get the Look:

Step 1. 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.


Step 2. Then apply a deep shimmery green eyeshadow — such as the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Green Promenade — to the center of the lids and blend it out towards the outer corner of the eyelids. 


Step 3. 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. 

Step 4. Finish by swiping 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. 


3. Thin Green Winged Eyeliner 

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.


Get the Look 

Step 1. Sweep on a shimmery champagne-colored eyeshadow, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Iced Latte, all across your lids. 


Step 2. Then use a green liner — like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Forest Green — 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. 


Step 3. Swipe on a few coats of mascara to boost your lashes, and your look is complete! 

4. Voluminous Green Lashes 

Try swapping your regular black mascara for a more festive color like green to celebrate the Irish holiday. 


Get the Look

Step 1. 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. 


Step 2. 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.


Editor’s tip: If you have really dark-colored lashes that won’t pick up the color, blend in some blonde falsies and then give them a swipe with the rich green formula.


5. Green Graphic Liner With Neutral Lips  

Raise the ante with a green graphic liner. This trend allows you to experiment with different geometric shapes on your lids and creases. Then, pair your look with a neutral lip color to let your eyes be the center of attention. 


Get the Look:

Step 1. With the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in True Teal, draw a thin line from the inner corner to the outer corner of your eye along the crease of your eyelid.


Step 2. Shimmy the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Noir Balm Washable Mascara onto your lashes to create an eye-opening effect.


Step 3. Apply a nude or pink-toned lip product of choice to your pout to complete the look. If lipstick is your go-to, we recommend the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Les Nus by Colour Riche Intense Nude Lipstick. If you prefer a matte formula, pick a shade from the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Matte Lip Crayon collection. For a glossy finish, reach for your favorite color from the L'Oréal Paris Infallible 8 Hour Pro Lip Gloss


Editor’s tip: Line and fill in your lips with a lip liner in a similar shade to make your lip color last longer. Depending on your finish, you can use the L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lip Liner or L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lip Liner.
