Are you dying for some fun this Saint Patrick’s Day? We figured we’d start you off with some cool and edgy beauty ideas! After all, we imagine you’ll be spending the day taking lots of pictures, so we want your look to be as memorable as the fun you have for the holiday!
From our favorite celebrities to our friends, unnatural hair colors have become a crazy but fun phenomenon for quite some time now. We thought this holiday might be an exciting time to join in on this trend, and here are two options to choose from.
For those wanting to switch up their mane without the semi-permanence, hair chalk is a fantastic idea. You can either color in a strand of hair or do the whole bottom half of your tresses, which would create the popular two-tone style. Enchanting pastel greens may be more flattering on lighter hair tones while more vivid greens might be more complementary and show up better on darker hair tones. Some product options include: 24 Colors Non-toxic Temporary Hair Color Chalk Square Hair Chalks, Hot Huez Hair Chalk, and Splat Hair Chalk.
On the other hand, those who might like to be a little more daring can try the colored ombre, which is a great way to keep your natural hair color while also adding a slight edge. The best way to achieve this style might include going to a professional, particularly if it’s something you’re open to keeping even after Saint Patrick’s Day. However, if you decide to take up the challenge yourself, we recommend Manic Panic Semi Permanent Hair Dye Enchanted Forest Green or Pravana ChromaSilk Vivids Hair Color in Green.
Lastly, if you’re in the mood to play with your eyes, we have an eye look that is universally beautiful. Of course when we think of Saint Patrick’s Day, we think of green, so naturally there’s bound to be tons of green eye shadow; however, to make sure your eyes pop and stand out from the crowd, we’ve decided to add a unique twist.
A gorgeous eyeshadow combination would be gold and green eye shadow. Makeup Geek Eyeshadows or BH Cosmetics are reasonably priced, have great pigmentation, and offer plenty of colors to choose from. A shimmery gold eye shadow enhances all eyes and would look beautiful dusted on top of the lids, while the green is striking and bright when added to the lower lash line. Matte black liquid eyeliner, such as Make Up For Ever or Kat Von D, would balance out the shimmer from the gold eye shadow while also making a stunning addition. The cat eye is optional depending upon whether you wish to dress up or dress down your look. Be sure to complete your eye makeup with mascara as it adds definition, flair, and gives an overall finished look.
