GUYS GUYS GUYS!! 😀
I know it’s like super late / super early (midnight at time of posting this–my time zone), way earlier than I usually post, but I have teamed up with Britney from Surrealistique to bring you yet another collaboration and I’m so excited about this one too!
Britney DM’d me on Twitter and she had the idea to do something for St. Patrick’s Day and I immediately loved it! I did want to do something for St. Patrick’s Day but I was kind of stuck and this collab gave me the little push I needed.
For this collab, Britney and I each created TWO makeup looks. We will each be featuring one of our looks on our own blog posts, and the second looks we have swapped. So I will be showing you ONE of Britney’s looks and she will be showing you one of mine. So if you want to see a total of FOUR makeup looks, or you simply need a few more ideas for St. Patrick’s Day, look no further, we have you covered! 🙂
I’m not going to lie to you guys, this final look was actually my third attempt! I knew I wanted to create a gradient look, but I had a hard time picking the right shades lol. Despite all that, I ended up really loving this [third] and final look.
This makeup look took a long time because black shades can ruin a makeup look quicker than you’d imagine. So I spent quite a while blending it all out until I was pleased. I think my hard work payed off. 🙂

I think Britney’s look is super gorgeous and I looove the glitter she used. Glitter always makes everything look a bit more festive, so why not?! I’m loving the bold green, glittery lips too! 😀
Here’s what she had to say about her makeup look:
One thing I love about any holiday is that it’s a great opportunity to be festive and get creative, especially with makeup. I didn’t want to do a simple every day makeup look. Instead I wanted to do something a little more crazy that you might wear to a St. Patrick’s Day themed party, rave, or some other fun event. In this case, I decided to go with glitter because it’s not something I wear often, but it’s super fun.
I used some colorful and cheap Shany eyeshadow palettes for the base on my eyes and lips. (The palettes don’t even have names). I used beige/gold shades on my eyes, topped with gold glitter, black liquid eyeliner, and of course mascara. I used a vibrant shade of green eyeshadow on my lips and then topped that with the gold glitter as well.
What do you think of these two looks?
