Don't Teal Me It's St. Patrick's Day!

If you want to see a green eye shadow look check out my Halloween Green Cat's Eye Look.  Green eye shadow can look a bit wrong with blue eyes and over the top for work, so here's my toned down St. Patrick's Day look with only a flash of green, well teal, which goes better with blue eyes.

I used No7 Stay Perfect Eyeliner in Jewel on the top lid and Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Electric on my lower waterline.  I don't know what's wrong with mine but the pencil is incredibly hard and I had to tug my eyes into submission to get the colour to show up.  If I were to do it again I'd use Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer in Emerald Sparkle. 

You can just do a streak of green like above, but I decided to wing Jewel out over my black flick for a more striking effect.

For the shadows I used the UD Naked Palette: Toasted all over lid, Hustle on outer corner and crease and a swipe of Sidecar over the lot with more in the inner corner.

Kiss me, I'm Irish!

My mum is insisting on being as Irish as possible, so I have to take her to the Empire Cinema in Leicester Sq. to watch 'Lord of the Dance 3D', as if seeing it and Riverdance live when I was a teen were not enough! If it gets too much I can always nip around the corner to Waxy O'Connors for a cider and check out hot Irish men :)

Have you any plans?


  1. Your skin looks so fresh and perfect, I'm totally jealous!

    @Anonymous - Hi Kathryn! Thank you! It's a random pink rimmel gloss...will bring it in tomorrow!

  7. I love love love the opportunity for festive beauty... I also used lower eye liner and also my choice of outfit. And joy of joy for the festive nails from Claire's Accessories!!!!

  8. i know what you mean about blue eyes and green eyeshadow. Ive got pale skin too, so its so unbearable to even try and attempt. Thats why i generally tend to stick to browns and neutrals. The look youve done looks lovely though. Definitely not OTT.
