Happy St. Patrick's Day to those of you who celebrate! Downtown Chicago goes all out for this holiday, and if you live here you'll know exactly what I'm talking about- we dye the river green, do the obligatory parade, and basically everyone comes out to celebrate. My roommates and I went over to the parade and then to see the river, and there are so many people out that it's hard to walk! I wish I had my camera so I could have taken some pictures of the funny costumes- some guy die their beards green, spray paint themselves, and most everyone is wearing one of those plastic green top hats.
I wore some green but didn't go all out like most people (I'm definitely in the minority here!). You know I had to do green makeup, though. I actually tested out both of these eye looks yesterday and wore a variation of the first one today.
This is a bunch of chartreuse green with a deeper, olive-brown in the outer corner to make it more wearable. I really like how this one turned out! The OCC pigment is a little funky to work with, but it ended up balancing out the matte shade I used all over the lid from my Coastal Scents palette.

This look leans much more to the blue side of the spectrum, but is still in the green family (though my camera makes it look very teal in these pictures!). Can you tell I didn't feel like doing a straight up kelly green look? :)
