Pops of Green for St. Patrick’s Day


Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I will be celebrating by making banana pancakes, wearing my favorite green scarf from World Market, and perhaps painting my nails with Essie’s First Timer, a perfect mint-green. I’m all about incorporating color in subtle ways, so below I have listed a few ways to incorporate green into your look for St. Patrick’s Day – whether it be with an accessorie, nail polish or makeup product!

  1. I love a solid green scarf, especially when worn over a white or black top. This light weight scarf from Sole Society is the perfect St. Patrick’s Day shade of green, and is great cozy accessory to transition into spring.
  2. If you’re looking to incorporate green into your makeup today, go for a pop of green with liner rather than applying a solid green shadow to your lids. Start by washing a neutral shade over your lids, applying a darker brown shadow to line your upper lash line. For the pop of color apply a green liner like Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Junkie or Mainline to your water line and lower lash line.
  3. Go for a Blair Waldorf inspired look with an adorable skinny green headband, like this one from Etsy.
  4. If you want to show your Irish pride all week long, give yourself a manicure with my favorite green nail polish, Essie’s First Timer, a gorgeous mint-green that is perfect for spring.
  5. Yet another way to incorporate a pop of green into an otherwise neutral outfit is with a pretty statement necklace, like this one from Hudson’s Bay.

I hope all of you have a very happy & safe St. Patrick’s Day!
