Simple Steps For Fun St. Patrick’s Day Makeup

-Base/Foundation

Begin with a foundation base for a smooth look that will make your makeup last longer.  Make sure that you also apply concealer over  imperfections so that your skin will become flawless. Next, apply press powder for a finished look.

-Eyeshadow

First, apply a light green glittery eye shadow all over your eyelids, with a darker shade of green on the outer half end of your lids.  Afterwards, green eye shadow as a smudge liner under your eye, and use a medium green or brown shadow on your crease. This will create an interesting green eye with a pop of intense green color.  For extra pop, line your eyes and waterline with plum or black eyeliner, and then apply a decent amount of mascara for an extra dramatic look. You could also apply a bit of shimmer on your brow bone and tear ducts so that your eyes will pop even more.

-Lips

Since your eyes are already pretty strong, apply a nude lipstick on your lips. If you are not used to wearing nude lipstick, then you should just apply a slightly brown/pink lipstick just to add a bit of color to your lips.

-Cheeks

For the cheeks, all you need to do is contour the bones with bronzer or a slightly pink blush if you want to have rosy cheeks for the holiday. Don’t try to make your cheeks over extravagant, since you do want your eyes to be the star.

Basically, with this very simple and easy to follow St. Patrick’s Day Makeup, you will then look your best on this very festive holiday.

Best Of Make Up For Ever Kit Review

Make Up For Ever is one of my favorite brands overall. Their aqua eyes liners are simply incredible (see aqua eyes swatches at Beauty and Fashion Tech), and both their liquid and powder high definition foundations are my regular daily use foundations. Make Up For Ever also makes good primers and lip products. A good way to test them out is through the Best of Make Up For Ever Kit at Sephora.

Best of Make Up For Ever Kit

The kit contains the following products:

High Definition Microfinish Powder: A wonderful finish powder.

Aqua Cream in 13 Warm Beige (champagne shimmer): A beautiful shimmer highlighting cream that is great as a pretty overall shimmer eye shade or as an eye highlighting cream (which is how I use it).

Travel Aqua Eyes in Mat Black 0L (black): I love aqua eyes. The liners are seriously waterproof, glide on easily, and wear all day and evening.

Lab Shine Lip Gloss in Star Collection – S4 (pearly pink beige): A pretty pink gloss in a neutral shade that will work for just about anyone.

High Definition Microperfecting Primer: a great overall skin and makeup primer.

Smoky Lash Extra Black Mascara: a Good basic black mascara for daily use.

Here are swatches of the the Make Up For Ever Lab Shine Gloss and Aqua Cream.

It’s that time of year when everyone’s mind is on one thing: Valentine’s Day, February 14th. If you’re in a relationship, you may be thinking how to gage the situation and what to do to make your loved one feel special, and if you are set to spend it alone you may be thinking of how to cheer yourself up or make the most of single life.
