Update: Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!! I attempted this look today and it’s obviously not as good as the original since I’m no makeup artist, but I had a blast wearing my green glitter today. I wore it to the office, so I used a nude base, vs. the black smokey eye in the tutorial. I also found a glitter sticker at Michael’s, so that saved me a bunch of time this morning since I did not have to paint it on. Loved the look and I didn’t get pinched :) I definitely want to try this again with different colors for other holidays, or just for a fun night out – maybe with some gold or silver glitter.

PS – I need to figure out my camera settings already. I don’t know how they come out grainy and blurry at the same time, haha. Wish you could see the detail better.

Original Post – March 3rd:


I found this video last year right after St. Patrick’s Day, so I’ve been waiting nearly a year to attempt this look. St. Patricks day is coming up on Wednesday March 17th, so you have plenty of time to stock up on glitter and eyeshadow for your night out. I’m thinking about wearing this all day (wake up super early before work), so I don’t get pinched :) Thanks @kuuipo1207 for another amazing look.

    Ooh I love that metallic liner, looks awesome! I’m on the hunt for some St Pattys Day Eye Shadow ideas, this one looks promising. The colors I’m working with are Irish Eyes and Pixie Dust from Mattify Cosmetics. They look great used wet or dry, so the Irish Eyes will be the perfect green liner to duplicate this look, and then I’ll dust some of the Pixie Dust over the top for that iridescent look. Time for painting my lids green, then drinkin the green beer. Happy St Pattys Day everyone!
