St. Patrick’s Day Makeup Looks To Rock the Holiday
We used to love wearing green on St. Patrick’s Day when we were in elementary school and continued wearing it up until we reached high school, until, finally, we outgrew both the color and the tradition. As we started experimenting with makeup, we told ourselves that there were few looks we could create that wouldn’t be… how do we put this? Tacky. So because, let’s face it, green can be a hard color to rock, but with our help, you can still rock it! Check out these tasteful, even beautiful, St. Patrick’s Day makeup looks you can do to celebrate your Irish (if only for a day) spirit in you!
