St. Patricks Day Makeup: Green-a-palooza!

Happy St. Patricks Day! :) Here's a wicked-to-the-bone green look for ya! What's everyone doing to celebrate?  Oh, by the way?  Glitter doesn't show up nearly as fun in the photos as it was in person.  I put the glitter on my lashes, lower lash line,...

Subtle, cool-edged neutrals are another way to define eyes and still wear a bolder lip color. The black eyeliner on both the top and upper lash lines (but note you can always modify this!) really give eyes more definition and make them *pop* without being too much. ...

Bright gold, soft coppers complement coppery, bronzy red lips well for the holiday season. This kind of look lets you have plenty of color on the lid while still wearing a bolder lip color.

Bronzy golds, subtle green is festive, holiday appropriate, and yet not the...
