Erin here! And since St. Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite holidays, I just had to do a look for Phyrra. Green and gold, baby!
I started with Too Faced Shadow Insurance as primer and then applied Sugarpill’s Goldilux to the inner half of my eye. This is one AMAZING gold, let me tell you. Definitely worth the purchase. Next, I took the olive green shadow from Lorac’s TANtalEYES Baked Eyeshadow palette and applied this to the outer part of my lid, blending it out a little. Lorac is becoming one of my favorite higher end brands for eyeshadow. Very pigmented and smooth. I used Fyrinnae’s Dressed to Kill to my crease, blending the color back and forth. This is another amazing color; a beautiful, saturated gilded green with tons of sparkle (I even see holo!). I then mixed Dressed to Kill and the olive green shadow and applied a little under my lower lash line. Next, lined my upper and lower lash lines with an E.l.f brown cream liner, flicking them both out so there was a slight space between the two at the outer corners of my eyes. To add a little depth, I also applied some of the sparkly black shadow from Lorac’s Multiplex 3D Eyeshadow palette to the outer part of my liner on the upper lash line. (Note: I picked both of these Lorac palette up via Hautelook, so keep you eyes peeled!) For a highlight under my brows, I used the gold champagne color from the TANtalEYES palette and for the inner corners of my eyes, I used Sugarpill’s Lumi loose shadow. Mixed with Goldilux, Lumi makes an amazing bright green color. To finish up, I layered on Benefit’s They’re Real! Mascara to both upper and lower lashes.
I wanted to keep the eyes the focus, so I filled my brows with a rich dark brown shadow, and warmed up my skin with MAC’s Wonder Woman ‘Pink Power’ bronzer combo (though I can’t recommend it, even if it was limited edition, due to the recent change in their testing policy). For the lips, I also kept it simple with Silk Naturals’ lipstick in Foreplay.
And that’s it! I am not one for greens but now that the Hawaiian sun has kissed my skin, I feel like the color really works!
Have a happy and safe St. Patrick’s Day! Have a Killian’s or Guinness for me And remember, don’t ever drink and drive. A cab ride is not worth your, or anyone else’s life. Erin Go Bragh!
