Busy mums don’t have time to fuss around with an extensive cosmetic setup, so make St. Patrick’s Day your excuse to freshen up your arsenal of beauty supplies with at least one or two fun new items.
If your cosmetics drawer seems filled with a lot of stuff that look tired and beat, maybe it’s time for a little makeup housecleaning. Begin by taking a hard look at whatever comprises your makeup stash, and then get rid of out any items that are dried up, worn out or that you haven’t used in ages.
And since St. Patrick’s day is just around the corner and green has been voted in as one of this season’s hot colours, check out a few fun items I’ve found that will rev up your Irish spirit, while updating your look at the same time.
You’ll stop dead in your tracks when you see the elegant look of this limited edition deep emerald green nail polish and St. Patrick’s day is just perfect for busting this one out. It’s not only a high-shine and chip resistant lacquer, but you can rest free knowing this formula is also free of toluene, DBP and formaldehyde too.
Laura Mercier Sherazade eye shadow’s are well known for their quality pigmentation that allows you to wear them all day without any need for retouching. And you’ll love the versatility of this luster/gold khaki green eye shadow, because it goes great with just about any skin tone, is crease-resistant and adds just the right amount of luster to your eyes, but without looking overdone.
This well thought out lime green cosmetic bag is not just visually appealing, but it’s design is also really well thought out. It features both clear and roomy zippered compartments, so you’ll be able to easily see and keep all your makeup neatly organised in one place or be able to grab it quickly if you need to take it with you while on the go.
And if you don’t have time for anything else, this jumbo eye pencil is super quick to apply and will give your eyes that wide awake look, especially on those days when you’re a little bit tired, so you just might need to fake it a little bit when your Irish eyes aren’t quite as bright and shiney as they should be.
