St. Patrick's Day Makeup: Beauty Gone Green!

Well aren’t you lucky? Not only is St. Patrick’s Day makeup fun and festive, but emerald green is also Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2013. Everything’s coming up green!

Seriously, green is everywhere, especially at Sephora, where they’ve got an entire shop full of limited-edition Sephora + Pantone Universe items. So much green! I’m not saying you have to go full-on Oz with your St. Patty’s Day makeup looks, but why not snag a new green product that adds just a dash of cash-colored glam? Just finish with a nude lip for daytime, or a bold coral at night.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Eye Liner—This soft pencil is perfect for this spring’s colorful under-eye liner look. Just make sure to blend well. ($19,

Sephora + Pantone Universe Liquid Lash Silk Mascara—Switch your regular mascara for this green version, especially paired with a shimmery taupe shadow. ($11, Sephora)

Nicole by O.P.I Nail Lacquer in Candid Cameron—Fan of Modern Family? Wear this shimmering green polish to show your devotion to the show. Or, you know, just because it’s an awesome color that looks really cool. ($3.58, Target)

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR Eyeshadow—Apply this shadow before going out to have a pint (or six) and be amazed when you return home to find it still perfect. This stuff Does. Not. Budge. ($6.79, Walgreens)

Hair Color Chalk in Green Energy—Why should your face have all the fun? Apply this chalk to strands using your fingers, and it washes out when you’re sick of it. (Blondes beware.) ($15.95,
