Outfit? Check. Nails? Check. Makeup? If you’re planning your St. Patrick’s Day look, you cannot forget about beauty. Even if you’re wearing head-to-toe green and your nails are decorated with shamrocks, a gorgeous green makeup look can still add a little bit of extra luck. If you’re not into the idea of using face paint to cover your cheeks and forehead with shamrocks, there are plenty of other ideas you can try. Go green!

Take a look at the gorgeous green makeup looks you can rock on St. Patrick’s Day.

1. Green and Gold Eyes with Ombre Green Lips

Feeling bold? Use green on your eyes and your lips. We cannot decide whether we like the shading on the eyes or the ombre lip more. Thankfully, you don’t have to choose between one or the other.

2. Green Crease and Nude Lipstick

If you’re used to wearing neutral eyeshadows, a bold green one can be pretty intimidating. This look shows how wearable it can be. Use a soft oyster shade on your lid then add the green to your crease. Complete the look with a glossy nude lip.

3. Green and Gold Eyes with Winged Eyeliner

Talk about St. Patrick’s Day makeup goals. The lip and eyes would have been festive enough if they were worn separately, but together they create a dazzling look. Make sure you add the glitter in the inner corners of your eyes because that takes things to the next level.

4. Two-Tone Eyes With Winged Liner

There are countless ways you can apply green and gold eyeshadow. Here, the bold green shadow is on the lid and crease and the gold is reserved for the inner corner of the eye.

5. Green Lipstick and Soft Green Shadow

Now this is a different type of monochromatic look. Try to find an eyeshadow and lipstick in similar shades of green to achieve the same effect. Alternatively, you can search for a pigment that you can apply to your eyes and lips.

6. Deep Green Eyeliner

Can you see the green? It might not be as obvious as some of the other looks, but it is just as festive. Use a black eyeliner on your upper lash line to balance out the green on the lower one. Don’t forget a flirty set of lashes to make your eyes really pop.

7. Green Eyeshadow with White Flick

It’s quite common to see green eyeshadow paired with black eyeliner, but this stunning eye makeup swaps the black for white. It gives the green eyeshadow an ethereal vibe. Go on, try it out.

8. Bright Green Eyeshadow and Nude Lips

St. Patrick’s Day makeup can be whimsical, bold and dramatic. This look falls into the edgy category. Choose the brightest neon greens you can find and paint them over your entire eye area. Complete the look with an understated lip.

9. Green Eyeliner and Pink Lipstick

It’s easy to become so focused on the green makeup that we forget about other colors. This look reminds us that it’s about your entire face as opposed to only one feature. You cannot go wrong with some green eyeliner paired with a matte pink mouth.

10. Ombre Green Eyeshadow with Speckled Lashes

This look might just make you want to keep your eyes closed. Choose a makeup palette with multiple green shades to create a green smokey eye. A pair of decorative lashes are the finishing touch. If you can’t find polka dot ones, try glitter, feathers or anything else you can get your hands on.

11. Glittery Green Eye Makeup

Now these are some party eyes. Apply brown shadow to your eyes then swipe an opaque green glitter on top. Don’t be afraid to really layer it on.

12. Glittery Crease Green Eyeshadow

The glitter crease gives the eyes such dimension. Take a cue from this look and choose a glitter in a contrasting shade from your green eyeshadow.
