Embrace the luck of the Irish with these emerald hued makeup ideas.
While St. Patrick's Day traditionally calls for slipping into something green, this year, celebrate in style and forgo the emerald frock. For a subtle take on festively verdant beauty, why not opt for a jewel-toned eye instead? After all, from a quick glance at Instagram feeds everywhere, fashion's favorite rulebreakers have already gotten a head start.
Celebrity makeup artist Hung Vanngo's riff on a classic cat eye includes dashing a blue-green liner over Emily Ratajkowski's mod wing while Patrick Ta blends a moss-colored shade underneath Joan Smalls' lower lashes—bonus points for a contrasting pale pink shadow on the corners of the eye.
For a high-shine take on the shade, look to model Kristina Sheiter's slicked dark green lids, easily recreated with a deep pigment and a clear eye gloss. But for a truly boundary-pushing take on color? Look no further than Kiko Mizuhara's lemon lime wash, accented with just the right amount of highlighter and a mint brow moment that will inspire even makeup amateurs to plunge wholeheartedly in the trend.
