St Patricks day makeup looks - 1



In a previous article entitled "Beware the ides of March is upon us," it was advised that makeup looks should be tested and perfected. Even great artists such as Michaelangelo and Da Vinci sketched their works prior to producing the final product.

The first St. Patricks day eye makeup look was achieved using Urban Decay.  No primer was used. Honey was dusted over the inner third of the top lid and an eighth of the inner corner of the bottom lid. Graffiti was swept over rest of the upper lid. Both colors were gently blended right above the crease to fade into the skin tone. Grafitti eyeliner was used on the upper lid close to the lash line. Ransom liner was used on the lower lid to make the green and gold less boring and make the chestnut brown irises pop. The look can be finished with mascara.

This look was drafted informally to wear to a professional office setting. It is great for St. Patrick's day or spring in general. Depending on eye color, turquoise is also nice to use instead of purple. Experiment and have fun with your makeup looks!

Notes: Photos were informal snapshots taken with an iPhone 3Gs. Makeup look was not polished as it was simply a sketch to experiment.
