Green may not be the first shade we gravitate towards in our beauty routines, but with St. Patrick’s Day coming up, this lively hue is only fitting. It’s true that green hasn’t had the best outlook, especially since it’s reminiscent of Elphaba’s viridescent complexion from Wicked. But let’s be honest: that witch made us envious with just how good she looked in it. From olive tones to mint pastels, green just may be the color we’ve been holding back on for far too long. In honor of the leafy shade, we’re inspiring not only you, but us too, with beauty looks you can master on none other than St. Patrick’s Day.
