Someone once said it, “It ain’t easy being green.” That someone was Kermit the Frog. That may be true in some cases, but it isn’t true when it comes to your beauty products. It is St. Patrick’s Day today which means you’re probably decked out in green, themed clothing, and sporting some sort of clover manicure and a green makeup look. You’re wearing green because you do not want to get pinched, but if you ignore the pinching and focus on your beauty look, you will see that green makeup is actually very flattering. It works on all skin tones and makes your eyes pop. Green makeup is something that you will want to wear the other 364 days of the year.
