FOTD: My St. Patrick's Day Look

Hey guys! I was originally planning on recording a green St. Patrick's Day tutorial but somehow my weekends always seem to be busy busy. The good news is that I did the second best thing, a "face of the day" from the actual morning of March 17th to show you how I really did my makeup. I feel like it's been a long time since I did a good 'ole FOTD without a video, am I right?

Here's a second little preview of my ombre hair which I am really loving so far. It's not too intense in real life that I feel uncomfortable with it, and it looks nice even when I don't do anything at all to it like in these photos.


Here's one with eyes closed so you can see the shadow. Although I actually do this a lot, it's actually a technique that I haven't used in a video yet so I might go ahead and show it in a video anyhow in the future. As you can see, the concentration of shadow is pretty horizontal as opposed to the rounded shape that I did in my smoky pink eyes tutorial.


Colors used:
Inglot shadow in AMC Shine 15 (orange-gold) for inner lid
Inglot shadow in Pearl 418 (dark green similar to MAC humid) for outer-v/contour
Teal shadow from Josie Maran Natural Wonders Palette in center of lid (looks bright green when layered)

When eyes are opened you see just a hint of color on the lids. It's a pretty effect when you are blinking.


I also used the NYX Mosaic Powder in Highlight for the browbones, inner eye corners, and tops of cheeks. Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Lucky is on my lower lash line. Lashes are Pretty & Cute Korean High Fiber Lashes in M146 which look nice and fluttery. I just have Blistex Silk & Shine lipbalm on my lips.

Here's a close-up of the eyes. You can click to see it larger.


Since I was totally kidding in my last post about talking about my hair here, I will do a hair post VERY SOON for real, and also have a review and swatches of both my Inglot palette (thank you sis!) and a few Josie Maran items including the one I used for this look.

  10. The look is very clean and polished and I really like it. I'll have to remember to wear it for next year's St. Patrick's Day :) Really love that hair color though. I've always wanted my hair to be that shade. <3

  15. This looks great and I really love your new ombre hair! Can't wait till you do your post about it!! I wonder if I can just let my roots grow up so it becomes natural ombre hair... haha... no, I'm really going to need to re-dye it before I let it get that bad!

  17. Ahoy! Newbie follower here :) Your blog is so interesting, I'm always so thankful for your entries! I never thought I'd 'meet' someone who also didn't start putting on make-up until college years!!!

    And not gonna lie, your vids are kinda persuading me to try out those falsies (eyelashes) you're currently in love with....and BB cream, lols.

  18. wow, you look gorgeous - as usual! :) love your new hair too. just wanted to say that I'd love to see you do a tutorial for this - especially the technique for how the eyeshadow is more horizontal; I feel like the more rounded eyeshadow application doesn't really work for my eye shape or something, so I've been looking for other tutorials...
