Even if you're not Irish, St. Patricks day brings a glee to society that in my opinion is much needed due to all the chaos going on politically. I personally am not Irish, and still enjoy embracing the holiday, and dressing up in green! That all being said, today (yes sorry for the double posting) I put together a golden St. Patty's day look, in which can conform to a wide variety of skin tones! For instance, if you're of a cocoa complexion, just change up the striking gold tones to more coppery and bronzy colors. This goes for if you're extremely fair as well! I know a lot of Irish people who have that alabaster skin tone-- instead of the gold I'm wearing in the photos, opt in for PALE golds, or even a light pinky glow! Trust me, the eye makeup has it, the glow comes second. On another note, THANK YOU love bunnies so much for the repins on my St. Patricks day makeup tutorial I did last year! 2K and counting makes my heart warm, and melt.
(this is how I USED to do my makeup, so be warned for a bit of cakeyness)
Just so you loves know, I made sure to comment on the products with ALTERNATIVES for those with either COOL complexions or DARKER complexions! I really want my future makeup looks to work for all, and they can with just the right suggestions :). Why go through the hassle of dupes, when ya' have a Lillee?!
