Share Your Look: The St. Patrick’s Day Edition

Published in: Just For Fun, Makeup


Hiya, girls! Because we’re all Irish today , I’m celebrating St. Paddy’s with a green shirt, green eyeshadow and a few pints of green beer — just kidding! — green tea. El Hub really is part Irish, and I’m planning to go to the store this afternoon to get stuff for corned beef and cabbage, yum.


I dunno if we’ll go out for green beer tonight… We shall see!

Anyhoo, I think it would be kinda fun if we did another round of Share Your Look. Send in your look for today or tonight. If you’re going green, great, but your look doesn’t have to be green. The sky’s the limit.

Inspire me!

My St. Paddy’s Day look’s posted above, and I’m putting together a tutorial for it right now.

  • Eyes: MAC Paint Pot in Painterly, MAC Eye Kohl in Powersurge, MAC Pigment in Golden Olive, MAC Pigment in Gold Mode, MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack, MAC Eyeshadow in Humid, MAC Glitter Reflects Antique Gold, Chanel Exceptionnel Mascara
  • Lips: Chanel Aqualumiere Gloss in Tangerine Dream
  • Cheeks: Benefit Coralista Blush
  • A description of my look: I wanted this shimmery gold and green eye to match my green polo. This look’s basically a neutral eye with some extra color on the lid.

It’s still pretty neutral (i.e. safe for non-St. Patrick’s Day use), but I dusted Reflects Antique Gold over the entire lid for a touch of sparkle.

Your turn!

      Hi BJ,

      Aww, I wish I could see your look!

      I will have to try the kelly green/mint combo. I usually go for khakis and gold-greens, so your combo would be a fun new spin on green! Oh, the Coralista and Lollipop Loving combo = hawtness!

      Hi Justine,

      Thank you for sending in your pic! You look great — I know I couldn’t look half as put together if I worked a 12-hour shift. What kind of work do you do?

  5. Justine says:

    I’m a Registered Nurse in an intensive care unit! I actually started doing my make-up (not smokey for work but…) since I thought it would make me look more awake. XD;

    Hi Justine,

    LOL, that’s part of the reason why I wear makeup too. Life without concealer would be ROUGH. All the little children would mistake me for a zombie, ha!

    Do you like being an RN?

  7. Justine says:

    I don’t use concealor yet… just a bit of foundation under my eyes… you can usually only see my dark circles if I’m realllly sleep deprived. Which I lucked out with 🙂

    I love my job! Although my definition of a good/exciting day is often quite horrifying to people who don’t work health care. >_>;;

      Hi Justine,

      Oooh, girl! Enjoy the non-concealer years while you can. They sneak up on you!

      That’s awesome that you love your job! Not many people can say that.

      I gotta give you RNs props — I worked in the ER as an intern a billion years ago and I could NOT HANG. I learned quickly that blood was so not my thing.

  8. Justine says:

    I have learned that blood is … tolerable but so many MORE things are worse which is probably why I only talk about work with other nurses. My best friends (most of which work in finance) give me very D: faces after they ask me how work is going. XD;

    I’ve only been a registered nurse for about a year 🙂 I’m sure I have lots more disgusting things ahead of me! And THAT idea is kind of exciting, so I’m probably in the right career.

      Hi Justine,

      LOL! It seems like you are in the right biz, for sure. I’ve read that it’s one of the most in-demand professions. I have friends who are nurses who can basically live wherever they want to in the world because hospitals are always looking for nurses, and I think that’s really cool!
