St.Patty's Day Looks.

St.Patty's day is fastly approaching. My girlfriends and I are going to a stag and doe on Saturday night and it's a St.Patty's day theme. I already have my outfit (a green dress I bought from Forever 21!) and now I need to figure out my makeup! I am going to try different looks throughout the week, probably all using GREEN! :)

Look #1: Green and Gold!
For this look I used a green all over my lid. I blended a darker green into my outer crease and then blended in along the crease, slightly blending up. I carried first the lighter green and then the dark green to line under my eyes. I used gold and blended it into the inner corner and slightly up into the crease. I then lined my upper lashline with black eyeliner and then lined over top of the black with gold. I lined my waterline/lashline with black eyeliner and went back over both with the darker green. I then lined the green under my eye with gold. For my highlight I blended in beige starting from the colour up to my brows. The colours are a lot more vivid in person, I wish my camera captured it better!

Look #2: Green and More Green!
For this look I did the lighter of the two greens on the inner third of my eye. I carried it under my inner lower lashline as well. I then took the darker green and started at the outer corner/crease and patted it on bringing it to meet the lighter green and blending. I then blended the darker green along my crease and slightly upwards. I used a very very pale green as my highlight. Black eyeliner on both upper and lower lashlines, mascara, and there you have it!

Look #3: Leaping Leprechaun's!
Well, i'm pretty sure this is the winner in my books! I will probably add some green (or gold) glitter to this look for Saturday night! Here's what I did:
I took the goldish-green and swept it onto the inner third of my eye. I also swept it on the inner third of my lower lashline. I slighty blended up. I then took dark green, starting where the goldish-green ended and slightly ontop, sweeping to the outer corner and blending up as well as along the crease. I made sure the two 'greens' were blended well. I then took black (which is actually a black with green shimmer in it found in my Avon 8-palette) and in a circular motion using my blending brush swept that into the outer 'V' of my eyes, slightly blending upwards and along the crease. I started adding a little at a time until I got the darkness I wanted. I lined my upper and lower lashlines with black eyeliner. I used my Double Extend and my falsies mascara to get full lashes and then added the gold shimmer from the Double Extend.
