The greenest day of the Year is upon us. Yes, its St. Patricks day. While dressing head to toe in all things green was cute when we were younger it isn’t as easy to pull off now. However there are ways to wear hints of green this Paddy’s Day and be fun and festive.


 For all you green eyed beauties a green eye look can be so easily pulled off. Whether you like an emerald or an olive green tone apply a shimmery shade on the centre of the lid for a spotlight look. Or for a more smoked out subtle look, use some matte greens on a warm brown base making it totally wearable for brown eyed ladies too!
