St. Paddy's Day


I don't have any green clothes so I tried using some green makeup on St. Paddy's Day. I took a few photos after going out with a friend, but looking at them on the computer, they aren't very good. Still, I wanted to catalog the look for myself.



Products Used:
  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance
  • Urban Decay Eyeliner in Midnight Cowboy
  • Urban Decay Eyeliner in Baked
  • Urban Decay Eyeliner in Mildew
  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Virgin
  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Baked
  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Homegrown
  • Lioele Up & Down Mascara
  • Urban Decay Lip Liner in Ozone
  • YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick in #5 Beige Etrusque


First applied Too Faced primer all over my lids and on my waterlines. Then used Midnight Cowboy eyeliner in the inner corners of my eyes onto the inner half of the lids and waterlines. I set that with Virgin eyeshadow then used Baked eyeliner to darken the middle of my lids and lined the rest of my waterline. After setting Baked with the same named shadow, I took Mildew and softly went around Baked towards the inner corners. I set Mildew with Homegrown and blended the colors a little to make my eyes look more even. Finished off by curling my lashes, applied mascara, lipstick and was done in about 15 minutes!

sorry for the blurry quality ^.^;

My makeup lasted me all day except for some smudging in the outer corners (seen above). It barely budged after a vigorous threading of the brows too! I love Urban Decay, it is one of my favorite brands. I tried out a new lipstick which I liked as well. It's YSL's #5, has SPF but doesn't smell like it does, and is super moisturizing for a lipstick. I'm not sure if I suit the color, but I don't care. It's a rosy coral that isn't too bold.
