Colourful Wednesdays│St. Patrick's Green

st patricks 6 

Hey everyone! This look is inspired by the shamrock, a three-leaved plant that was worn along with green ribbons in celebration of St. Patrick's Day in the 17th century. I used pigments and pressed eyeshadow to create this look. I know sometimes using loose pigments can be a little tricky and they can fall off and make a mess, but all you really need is precise application and a good eyeshadow primer. I use Urban Decay Primer Potion and Benefit Stay Don't Stray. To blend in 3 shades is fairly easy to do, all you need is practice and patience. I used bright shades in light, medium and dark to create depth, all in shades of green. On my waterline I used the Illamasqua Medium Pencil in Stephanie, a smoky lilac shade to make my eyes appear brighter and awake. For the rest of my face I did a simple look, applying peach blush, pink highlighter and nude lips.
