From bright shimmery shades to deep and sultry hues, keep reading to see how to make green work for you. 

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 on your lids using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Golden Emerald, then take the color down to your lower lash line. Complement it with  winged liner using the highly-pigmented L’Oréal Paris Infallible Grip Precision Felt Waterproof Eyeliner in Black, which won’t smudge your beautiful green eye look.

2. Voluminous Green Lashes 

Try swapping your regular black mascara for a more festive color to celebrate the holiday. Apply 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, apply the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Original Washable Bold Eye Mascara in Deep Green to make your lashes look longer and voluminous.

3. Green Cut Crease

Take your green makeup look up a notch with a cool cut crease. Apply the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Green Promenade all over your eye, then take the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Full Wear Concealer up to 24H Full Coverage and carve out your crease. Go back in with the green eyeshadow to make a wing shape at the outer corner of your eye, then top with some green glitter or rhinestones for an extra glam look.

4. Green Halo Eye

A halo eye look will make your eyes appear bigger and brighter. Use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Golden Emerald on your lids and lower lash line, and for the center of your lids, apply a bright and shimmery color like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Gilded Envy

For your inner corner, highlight your eyes with the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Little Beige Dress. Top off the makeup look with the L’Oréal Paris Telescopic Instant Lift Washable Mascara to make your lashes lifted and curled so they’ll stand out against your shimmery eye makeup. 

5. Shimmery Eyeshadow and Green Eyeliner 

This look combines colored eyeliner with a shimmery lid. Sweep a brown shadow, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Acro-Matte, all over your eyelid. Next, apply the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Green Promenade to the center of your lids. Then, take the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof, Up to 24HR Pencil Eyeliner in Black and apply it to your upper and lower lash line before smoking it out with the same eyeliner in the shade Forest Green on the lower lash line.

6. Ombré Green Lipstick

A colorful lipstick shade can brighten up a neutral eye look, or perfectly pair with green eyes. Line your lips with the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lip Liner in a shade close to the color of your lips, then color your lips in with the same liner to create a waxy base for your lipstick to grab on to.


Apply your green lipstick, then use a nude lipstick like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lipstick in Matte-Cademia in the center of your lips. Blend the two colors together, then finish your lip look off with the hydrating L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Gloss Plump in Mirror.
