St Patrick’s day is a fun holiday. It is a weekend spent with love laughter and maybe even a few cheeky mojitos. Regardless of how you spend your St Patrick’s day, it is a fun time to embrace green and get creative with it. Whether it be getting creative with your clothes, makeup or even facepaint.
My makeup is usually quite natural, it is how I feel most comfortable. Coming into different holidays I like adding subtle colours to my makeup, to add some festive vibes. My St Patrick’s day inspired makeup is an illuminating and fresh base, while adding some boisterous green to make my eyes pop for The St Patrick’s day celebrations.
I enjoy keeping my contour soft and gentle with a dewy finish. NYX have launched their Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette.
