St. Patrick’s Day Beauty: Green glamour
Instead of covering yourself in head-to-toe Leprechaun green on March 17, how about flaunting shades of green and gold with your make-up? Here are ten LUX products that will have you showing some glam Irish pride. You definitely won’t get pinched this St. Patrick’s Day while wearing any of these lucky charms!
A classic way to wear emerald green is with a thick line on your top and bottom lash lines. The Lancôme Longwear Calligraphy Gel Eyeliner in Emerald Seductive has a rich and creamy texture that makes it easy to apply the deep, luminous pigments. The rich green color will bring attention to your eyes whether you discreetly define or blend out for a smoky, dramatic look.
The Nars Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Celebrate has a bright neon green color that is sure to help you start the party at the pub. Use the fat pencil to create thick lines or to cover the entire lid. The long lasting and smooth and creamy texture of the pencil makes application mess-free and hassle-free. Use the pencil as a base and then add shadow over it for increased color intensity.
For a wild way to wear green on your eyes, use the Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Liner in Mullet. This festive green glitter liner will pair perfectly with that green beer you will be sipping on. Create intense sparkle by painting on precise, crystalline lines or sweep them out for jewel-encrusted wings.
Lancôme gives you another option of wearing green eye make-up with several shades of mint. Get the spring it-color with the 'Les Yeux Doux Color Design Shadow and Liner Palette in Verte Tendresse. This limited edition palette of cool mint and forest green eye shadows are long wear, lasting up to eight hours. Wear these colors from day to night by adding the dark green color in the crease for a more intensifying and smoldering shade.

For ladies that want to accentuate their already festive green eyes, they can use the Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Mascara Duo for green eyes. The dual-ended mascara creates volume and lengthens lashes while enhancing eye color with rich, metallic shade creating a green, glamorous glow. The clump-free, flake-free and smudge-free formula lasts for 24 hours—definitely throughout your entire shamrock shindig.

If wearing green make-up isn’t your cup of green tea, your nails are the perfect canvas to show some shamrock shades. Try some light green nail polish like Essie’s Mint Candy Apple and Navigate Her for hot hues. Butter London’s British Racing Green is a sparkling, hunter green color that will stand out. For a true shamrock color, OPI’s Simply Smashing will be a hit.
Like all Leprechauns, everyone wants to find their pot of gold on St. Patrick’s Day. To sparkle like pure gold, use the Tarina Tarantino Sparklicity Gold Shimmer Dust. When this fine glitter powder is sprayed over your bare shoulders, legs, décolleté and hair, you will be what every man wants to find at the end of a rainbow.
