St. Patrick’s Day is next week Tuesday, 3/17. If you’re looking for beauty inspirations from makeup to mani, my fellow bloggers and I got you covered today! I chose to do wearable jewel-tone green smokey eyes and went some kinda glitzy with my nails, take a look!

I’m a great fan of subtle and well-blended smokey eye makeup because even if you integrate some pop of color here and there, it remains wearable at daytime. For this look, I used Givenchy Ombre Couture Kaki Brocart as base, then layered with Evergreen from Too Faced A Few Of My Favorite Things palette. For transitional color on the crease, I used matte brown and beige also from the same Too Faced palette. For my lower lash-line, I used Clinique Cream Shaper For Eyes (olive green) then smudged with Evergreen for softer effect. I applied two coats of Clinique Lash Power mascara to complete my eye makeup.

#iwokeuplikedis, my hair that is! I washed my hair the night before, fell asleep with it damp and literally woke up with side waves and vavava-volume. I guess it’s one of those days, hair behaving nicely!

Quite predictably, I opted for nude puckers to compliment my jewel-tone peepers. I line and filled in my lips with Marc Jacobs (P)Outliner Longwear Lip Pencil Nude(ist) and swiped Marc Jacobs New Nudes Sheer Lip Gel Understudy on top.

Finally let’s go to my festive tweed mani. I rarely do mani posts because it’s not my mojo. My nails are cut super short and in most days, they are not painted. Low maintenance so to speak. It’s for a reason: my degree of handwashing and sanitizing is through the roof (I deal with patients every single day just so you know). With that said, it’s a waste of time to paint my nails the night before, only to chip the day after. Case in point is Ciate Tweed. Paint today, gone in a few hours.
