Kiss Me, I'm... Lucky!


It's that time again my friends, and even though I'm definitely not Irish, I'm eager to celebrate St. Patrick's Day this Saturday! Today's makeup post is clovers & shamrocks inspired and is subtle enough to wear to work tomorrow. If you're not a true O'Malley, Sullivan or Kelly, but are still feeling the spirit of Irish Day, this look is just for you, so keep reading for more pix, instructions and details! 



On to the makeup!



A hint of Kelly green
If you've been reading my blog for a while, you know that I tend to shy away from green eye shadows and barely have any green in my wardrobe. I always fear that green makeup and clothing make Asian skin look jaund-ish, so I admit to being a bit hesitant when it comes to this color. For St. Patty's, however, I'm changing it up and embracing my inner Leprechaun--after all, it is the true color of spring time and I'm definitely eager to find my pot of gold! To warm up my yellowish skin, I decided to go heavy on the blush--this is my trick to counteracting the green effect.

On my face, I'm wearing:

On my Lips:

 On my Eyes, I'm wearing:

Kiss me I'm "Irish" :))
One doesn't have to be Irish to join in the fun! How will you be celebrating?
