  • Chic Ways to Add Green to Your Look on St. Paddy’s Day

    St. Patrick’s Day is a fun end to the winter blues and amping up your beauty look with a little green is a great way to celebrate. This Friday, even though Leprecon is a thing of the past for Hoboken residents, many will go all out and be covered with green attire from head to toe. But for those of you out there taking a more modest approach — keep reading. We’ve gathered a list of products that will allow you to add a little green to your St. Patty’s Day look without feeling over the top — the best part being that each product can be found in our Mile Square and at local drugstores. Try these products for festive bar hopping or use these tips and tricks for a little added luck of the Irish all month long.

    Nails {The Easy Way Out}

    We all love a good mani, but this might be the easiest way to incorporate some green into your beauty routine. Two coats of this deep bold Essie shade, Going Incognito, and you’re set, which is great because this color is muted enough to transition tastefully from weekend to workweek. Pick this up at Makeovers in town {4th and Washington}. And if green is not your color, they have a wide selection of other options for stocking up on all your mani needs.

    Eyeliner {For Some Dramz}

    Nothing adds a bit of {green} drama like some liquid eyeliner. This new COVERGIRL Intensify Me! Liquid Liner in Emerald is ideal for adding a bit of definition to the eyes. The paddle tip is super thin, making it easy to apply. Because the color is dark enough that it could be fooled for some black liner, it is the perfect festive statement to take your St. Patty’s Day look from day to night.

    Shadow {For Just a Hint of Glam}

    It’s hard to pass up a great pigmented eyeshadow and this new L’Oreal Infallible 24hr Eyeshadow in Golden Sage is beyond gorgeous. The best part is that this look works wayyyy beyond St. Patrick’s Day. Since it’s not the traditional Kelly green, this shadow is THE perfect way to add a pop of color to the lids any day of the week, but especially on March 17.

    Green Lips {Channel Your Khloe/Kylie Lip Sitch}

    If you’re feeling bold, this NYX Cosmetics Wicked Lippie in Risque is sure to make a Kelly green statement that channels your inner Khloe/Kylie lip sitch. Looking for a stained effect? Just dab a bit in the center of your lip and blend out topped with a touch of lip balm. Want something slightly bolder? One swipe is more than enough.
