St. Patrick's Day is one of those fun holidays where pretty much anything goes, makeup-wise. The trick is to look festive without being tacky! I challenged myself to create some fun St. Patrick's Day makeup ideas that weren't too “out there” and today I'm sharing one of my favorites.

That “Freak” eyeliner is so striking! It's not something I'd wear on a daily basis, but it's a really unique look for St. Patrick's Day. I love how the brown and copper eyeshadows blend with the green! The Carli Bybel deluxe palette is one of my favorites whenever I'm reaching for shadows with pretty coppery tones.
If you're interested in adding freckles, be sure to check out my faux freckles tutorial. Mine are fake most of the time — except in mid-summer when I'm outdoors a lot. I made them slightly more dramatic in this look than I usually do.
