Subtle St. Patrick's Day Eye Look

Part 2 of this little Paddy's Day themed series (Part 1) is a lot more wearable and soft while still embracing the green, white, gold (and orange!). You could actually use this look any time of the year by just changing up the green line for another colour.

I started off once again by using MAC Paint Pot in Painterly as a base. I then packed on MAC Eyeshadow in  Ricepaper all over the lid using a flat shader brush (MAC 252). This colour is a very pale gold as opposed to the yellow-gold we used in the dramatic tutorial. In the crease, using a tapered crease brush (MAC 217), I applied MAC Eyeshadow in Texture, a really unique burnt orange/bronze shade that is very wearable while still keeping with the theme of St. Patrick's Day. I blended Texture out quite a lot towards the brow bone as it is a very intense and pigmented colour and too much looks a little too orange in my opinion. 

Eyeshadows (L-R): Gesso, Ricepaper, Texture and Humid.
Paint Pot: Painterly.

To give the look a little bit of a kick, I used a small dense brush (MAC 214) to apply a line of MAC Eyeshadow in Humid to the bottom lashline, winging it out at the outer corner. I then used MAC Eyeshadow in Gesso as my brow bone highlight and inner corner highlight. I lined my waterline using MAC Eye Kohl in Minted to carry on the green theme and applied MAC False Lashes mascara to my lashes. 

I hope that you all have a fun (and safe!) St. Patrick's Day!
