Paddy's Day Makeup Look

| Paddy's Day Parade Makeup Look! | 

Ireland's big day is tomorrow and every corner of the world will dawn a bit of green to celebrate the renowned Paddy's Day. Every year I opt to wear a subtle hint of green to embrace the day but this year I decided to create a fun 'out there' makeup look that would be ideal for anyone that's heading to a parade tomorrow. If you're spending the day with your kids or nieces and nephews then this would be such a fun look to wear - They'd certainly get a great laugh out of it! My thinking behind this look was to create a Snapchat filter style look whilst representing the three colours of the Irish flag.

I started off my normal foundation routine and then instead of my usual contour, I decided to contour using green eyeshadow. I used an turquoise shade called "Heads Will Roll" from the Urban Decay Alice In Wonderland palette that was released last Summer. What I love about this palette is the fact that it's so versatile as you can create a subtle daytime look using the neutral brown, peach, copper and pink shades, but you can also use it for creative looks using the bright shades like blue and green.

I also donned green on the eyes using the NYX Lid Lingerie in the shade Morning Sky*. The bright teal shade is ideal for Paddy's Day and the formula is very different to anything I've tried before. It has a liquid formula that's much easier to blend than a standard cream shadow, and the doe foot applicator makes it easy to apply. It provides a gorgeous metallic finish and I'll definitely be picking up some of the neutral shades as they would be so handy in my everyday makeup bag!

And the final green step of the look was the lips and for this, I used the NYX Cosmic Metals Lip Cream in the shade Electromagnetic*. The gorgeous deep green shade of the lip cream has a futuristic metallic finish and it feels comfortable to wear.

To represent the orange on the flag I applied some of the Mac Copper Sparkle pigment on the inner corners of my eyes. And lastly, to represent the white part of the flag I packed on 10x more highlighter than I would normally wear.
