Posted by Rachael Funnell in Makeup
Happy St Patrick's Day! It's the annual celebration of the patron saint of Ireland, the end of lent (that's right, you can eat chocolate again) and in more modern times, a celebration of all things green and alcoholic. Because everyone is Irish on March 17th we decided to commemorate one of the funniest days of the year with our top 5 clover-green online beauty buys, perfect for celebrating this patriotic day.
This shimmering emerald green eye pencil is the perfect way to add a quick flash of colour to your lids and lowers. With it's creamy sheer formula it glides on effortlessly for precision and a flawless finish. Definitely a beauty must-have for adding a subtle touch of the luck of the Irish on St Patrick's Day.
Mojitos? Love. Nail art? Love. Fun-loving lime nail polish? St Patrick's Day perfection. This bold and beautiful green is the perfect way to add a splash of colour into your St Patrick's Day look, plus with it's fast drying formula you can be ready in minutes. Now where are those Mojitos?
For a sheer, vivid green eye makeup look this St Patrick's Day we love this Cailyn Mineral Powder Eye Shadow in Ocean green. Made with 100% pure natural minerals this silky powder is effortless to apply for a subtle smokey look, or for a bold flash of colour.
We are head over heels for the uh-mazing Spring 2016 collection from Yves Saint Laurent, our brand of the month, but this gorgeous Hippie Green mascara has to top the charts for St Patrick's hero products. If you're not feeling the green then we couldn't help including a picture of the gorgeous Bohemian Pink edition, perfect for this year's festival season. YSL also do a gorgeous shimmering Full Metal Eye Shadow in Misty Green £25.50 if you're looking to expand your green makeup wardrobe...
I know what you're thinking... "Lipstick in green?! Rachael you've gone too far!" Welllll I have to admit I'm cheating a little with this one, but I just thought it's such a cool product (and still technically green) I had to include it. This magical lipstick transforms on your lips to become a bespoke shade of pink decided by the pH of your lips. This velvety lipstick enriched with Shea Butter and Vitamin E glides onto your lips in an emerald green before changing before your eyes into a gorgeous pink hue. Pretty cool, hey?
So put the novelty-sized Leprechaun hat down because with these clover-green online beauty buys you can do St Patrick's Day in style. Then again, auburn hair is in this season, maybe you could stretch to a big, fake bushy ginger beard?
