Irish Eyes are Smiling!

by Laura Kronen on March 17, 2011

Whether you are Irish or just love any opportunity to celebrate a holiday, St Patrick’s Day is a great day to experiment with makeup and have a little fun.


You might think that green can be a tough shade to crack (it’s not), but when in doubt, you can’t go wrong with a palette of pre-chosen shades.Yves Saint Laurent OMBRES 5 LUMIÈRES 5 Colour Harmony For Eyes is a palette of five monochrome eyeshadow colors. Each palette holds four luminous, alluring shades of varying intensity and finish—matte, shiny, pearly, or iridescent—and one highlighter. The highlighter is the magic touch, to lighten and widen the look instantly, while the deepest color is used to structure and define the eyes.  Perfect not just for St. Paddy’s, but year-round. Sephora $56

Pots o’ Gold

A pot of real gold might not be a reality, but a pot of gold powder is a bit easier to come by. Try Bare Escentuals Brilliant Gold Beauty Duo. Sephora $24 This limited-edition Brightening Gold Mineral Veil finishing powder, with real gold powder, imparts a subtle, sheer pearlescent glow to your skin. The lightweight formula gently absorbs oil and minimizes the look of fine lines and pores for a fresh, flawless look all day.

The End of the Rainbow

There are no better eyeliners than Aqua Eyes by Make Up Forever. Available in every possible color under and over the rainbow, these award-winning, waterproof, smudge-proof, and fade-proof eyeliners double as vibrant eyeshadows.  Sephora $17
