St Patty's Day Eye Tutorial

I am Irish. I also love the color green. So it was only obvious to me that I had to do a St. Patty's Day look for you all! I had a blast creating the look. I did not however have a blast photographing it. I am no photographer. The glitter in this look in combination of the dreary day outside (no natural lighting) and my lousy photographing skills means that the photos are not at all great. I took the best ones, zoomed em in a bit and cropped out everything but the eye look. Hopefully that will give you an idea of how this looks. The photographs just do not do it justice.But hopefully you can get a feel for how sparkly this is or pretty the green and gold are together!





I started off this look by priming my eyelids with the Elf eye primer in Sheer. I blended the primer with my fingers from my lash line to my brow bone and also brought a little bit down below my lower lash line. Then I took the Maybelline Color tattoo in Bold Gold and applied a little bit on the lid with my finger, blending it out really well. This makes for a great base for the eye shadows to stick to and also makes for a beautiful gold glittery undertone which is perfect for St. Patty's Day in my opinion!

I allowed that to set for a minute and then, using an Elf eyeshadow brush I patted Urban Decay's Chronic (a matte green) all over my lid. Then, using a pencil brush I applied a glittery green from one of the elf duos that came with the duo eyeshadow set I recently got in my mystery bag and applied that to the outer corner of the eye and slightly up into the crease of the eye. I also applied some of this same color to my lower lash line. Next, with that same pencil brush I took the crease shade from the wet n wild walking on eggshells palette and applied that into the crease and blended it up, so that there were no harsh lines. I used Urban Decay's Midnight cowgirl under my brow bone and patted lightly over the whole lid for a pretty highlight and some overall sparkle.

Next, I took the Elf shimmer eye liner pencil in twinkle teal, smudged it along my lash line and blended it well with a smudge brush so that it blended with the rest of the eye look and did not appear as a harsh line. Then, using the elf waterproof eyeliner Pen in black I lined really close to my upper lash line. I curled my lashes using my elf mechanical eyelash curler and applied two coats of maybelline falsies mascara in black. I also applied a bit to my bottom lashes as well.

Lastly, I went back in with the maybelline color tattoo in bold gold and applied a tiny bit on the inner corner of each eye for a pop or drama and glitter. This also helped open up my eyes.

I think this look would be perfect for an St. Patrick's Day party. Keep the rest of the face simple since this is a more dramatic and glittery eye look. Apply a bronze-y blush and a pink gloss and you would be good to go.
