5 Makeup Looks Inspired By St Patrick’s Day

5 Makeup Looks Inspired By St Patrick’s Day

Happy St Patrick’s Day to all our lovely subscribers! If you’re planning on making a statement when day drinking with friends or attending a St Patrick’s Day themed party today we’ve got some great makeup inspo for you! We picked the best St Paddy’s Day inspired beauty looks on Instagram created by makeup artists AND suggested products on how you can recreate them.

1. ‘Look’ of the Irish

This is such a unique twist on liquid liner that’s a little more subtle for your themed makeup! To recreate this unique look we would suggest using the NYX Vivid Brights Eyeliner available in both orange and green. For the white in the Irish flag you can also use the NYX White Liquid Liner.

Apply as you would your usual liquid liner, just in three different stages for each colour. You can put your own twist on the eye shadow colours but we love the colours Sarah has chose as the glittering gold on the lid ties in with the Irish myths.

2. Pot of Gold

Only one week until St. Patrick’s Day! ? This one is actually a recreation of a look I did about a year ago that I wanted to give a little re-vamp ?? I’ve used the Jaclyn palette enough that I might have to pick up a backup or two soon ? Products used: ? @anastasiabeverlyhills Dipbrow pomade in Granite ? @maccosmetics painterly paint pot as an eyeshadow base ? @morphebrushes X @jaclynhill palette ? @nyxcosmetics Epic Ink liner ? @holyglitter Glitter ‘snow’ on inner corner ? @houseoflashes Noir Faux Mink Lashes and Lash glue . . . . . #stpatricksday #stpatricksdaymakeup #greenmakeup #greeneyeshadow #goldeyeshadow #goldmakeup #glittermakeup #cosmeticglitter #cutcrease #cutcreasemakeup #anastasiabeverlyhills #anastasiabrows #abhbrows #maccosmetics #macpaintpot #morphe #morphebrushes #morphebabe #morphegirl #morphexjaclynhill #jaclynhillpalette #jaclynhillxmorphe #holyglitter #nyxepicinkliner #nyx #nyxcosmetics #nyxprofessionalmakeup #houseoflashes #fauxmink

Everyone knows the Irish tale that there is a Leprechaun with a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. We love this full glam look by swayzemorgan who is fully embracing St Patrick’s Day as you can see through not one but three different looks on her Instagram. Swayze used The Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette, a collaboration with Morphe (£37) to create this look. If you’re feeling a little tight for cash, you could also use Thebalm Meet Matt(e) Shmaker Eyeshadow Palette with the shades Jamie Wong and Matt Wong (£27.50) and then add a gold shadow of your choice.

 3. Emerald Glitter Liner

We love any excuse to add a bit of sparkle to our eyes. Lit Cosmetics are rising alongside the release of  Disney’s new film Wrinkle in Time as Oprah’s makeup artists revealed that he used Lit Cosmetics glitter for her glitter lip throughout the film! This St Patrick’s Day look was created using the shades Caviar Dreams & Magic Dragon. Peaches & Cream do stock Lit Cosmetics for the UK, however they usually sell out SUPER quick so keep checking if you want this product!  As an alternative, use MAC Pigment in the shade Emerald Green (£16.50) for a similar affect. Apply this glitter pigment with a dry or wet brush on top of your liner for glittering liner.

4. Green with Envy

This look can transition from St Patrick’s Day to Halloween! This lipstick by Lime Crime in the shade Serpentina (£12) is a metallic green long lasting liquid lipstick that will give you the effect of iridescent emerald lips and has a matte finish that will have you feeling in the mood for St Patrick’s Day celebrations and will hold up on a night out. As an alternative try MAC Grand Illusion Glossy Liquid Lip Colour (£18) in the shade PEACE, LOVE, UNITY, RESPECT.

5. Somewhere Over The Rainbow

• C U T | T H A T • . . . Weird paddy’s day rainbow vibes! The feedback I’ve been getting about the make ups have left me quite happy the last while so I’m back to wreck your head again? (ps thanks for the support y’all give me) The cut crease was inspired by the insanely talented @makeuplooksli ? . . .

We love this Rainbow inspired look by Erin! She used the bright colours in the 35B Morphe Palette (£23) to achieve this eye catching look that could also double as a Pride look in August! A dupe we would recommend to try this look, that you can get with your GLOSSYCredits, would be the Lottie London ‘The Rainbows’ Eyeshadow Palette (£9.95)! To make it a little more Irish, apply a some eyelash glue to where you want to add a bit more sparkle and place a single Shamrock confetti or green glitter on top of it. 

We’d love to see your attempts of these fantastic looks! Share your pics on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and tag #glossyboxuk!

I think it is so important to follow a beauty routine that works for YOU - you don't need to follow the crowd. I am always researching and trying out new looks, products and routines that are fresh and popular amongst the global beauty community to keep up to date with what's on trend and what works best. If you name a product, I've probably tried it.
