Winter is finally coming to an end and spring is just around the corner. This year, try adding some fun green skincare and makeup products into your routine! We’ve rounded up our favorite green products - both in shade and in eco-friendliness. Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Eyeshadow Palette in “The Rebel”Charlotte Tilbury is known for their deeply pigmented products, including their elegant eyeshadow quads. This option is perfect for anyone who wants to experiment with a green eye look this St. Patrick’s Day. It contains three beautiful green shades as well as a peachy-pink accent color. Each shade is bold and full of shimmer, so it’s perfect for a nighttime look. Be sure to start with your favorite eyeshadow primer for the best results. Youth To The People Superfood Skin Reset MaskSometimes your skin needs a little pick-me-up after a long night out or a stressful week at work. This nutritious green mask from Youth To The People is a great option that works well for all skin types. It contains greens like kale, spinach, spirulina, and microalgae, which are full of the antioxidants your skin needs to protect itself from external damage. It also hydrates the skin, which makes it look fuller and smoother, and minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Not only is this mask a pale green color, but it’s actually made with green ingredients too - it’s completely vegan and made with cold pressed natural extracts. Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Lipstick in Midnight WasabiIf you’re feeling particularly bold, try wearing green lipstick to your St. Patty’s Day celebration. While it may feel a little intimidating at first, it’s actually a great way to enhance your features. Since green is such a bold color, try wearing it with just foundation and mascara to let the color really pop. We love this beautiful deep green shade from Fenty Beauty - it goes on smooth and is incredibly pigmented. It is a matte shade, so be sure to exfoliate and moisturize your lips ahead of time to ensure the lipstick goes on even and doesn’t cling to dry patches. Ursa Major Go Easy Daily ShampooMany mainstream shampoos are full of harsh chemicals that can dry your hair out and strip it of its natural oils. Switching to a green shampoo can help keep your hair healthier. This option for Ursa Major is excellent for people with thick or textured hair that still need plenty of cleaning power. Instead of harsh sulfates, it uses surfectants derived from coconut, which lather without drying the hair out. It also contains macadamia and balsam to keep hair feeling soft and looking shiny. Clinique Redness Solutions Daily Protective BaseIf your skin is prone to redness, green-tinted makeup is actually an excellent way to correct it. This primer from Clinique is fairly sheer, but it has a slight green hue that balances out any redness in your skin. It helps your foundation and other makeup products go on smoother, and it has SPF 15 to protect your skin from sun damage when you’re outside. Unlike some SPF makeup, this product contains both UVA and UVB protection. It doesn’t contain any oils, and it doesn’t irritate sensitive or acne-prone skin. Innisfree Green Tea Seed Intensive Hydrating CreamA moisturizer should always be a part of your daily skincare routine, and this option from Innisfree is an excellent green and organic option. It’s made with all natural green tea seed extract sourced from Jeju Island in Korea. This extract delivers moisture back to dry skin and helps strengthen the skin’s barrier, so you’ll retain moisture for longer. Antioxidants help protect the skin from external damage, so you can retain a youthful-looking appearance. You can also use this moisturizer around the eye area to manage dark circles and brighten up the eyes. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in “Stash”A green eyeliner is a fun way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day without doing an entirely green eye look. While this liner from Urban Decay is available in many different colors, including other green shades, we enjoy this one because it has small flecks of gold to add depth. This pencil looks particularly great on those who have green eyes, but can be worn with any eye color. It has a smooth formula with vitamin E and jojoba oil, which makes it very easy to apply. It’s also waterproof, so it will stay on all day, even though sweat and tears. Shiseido Controlled Chaos Mascaraink in “Emerald Energy” A green look isn’t complete without a bold green mascara. While there are plenty of green mascaras on the market, this beautiful deep green from Shiseido is a great way to get bold color while lengthening your lashes. The formula is long-wearing and doesn’t clump, unlike many other colored mascaras. The shade is bold and shows up on lashes without being overpowering. Milk Makeup Kush Lip Balm in “Green Dragon”A great lip balm is a daily essential that everyone needs. This option from Milk Makeup looks green in the tube, but goes on clear to hydrate and nourish the lips. It contains shea, mango, and cocoa butters for a thick moisturizing effect. It’s made with natural ingredients and contains antioxidants to protect the lips from external damage. It has a light peppermint and sage flavor that’s relaxing without being overpowering. St. Patrick’s Day is the perfect occasion to add some green products into your beauty routine. Whether you’re creating a bold green makeup look or just trying some fully natural skincare products, it’s a fun way to switch up your day-to-day beauty experience.

Amazing Drugstore Mascara
I am in love with this mascara duo I picked up at the drugstore 😍 essence - Volume Booster Lash Primer CVS: $4.99 priming my lashes is usually a frustratingly long experience , but since all I have is time I figured I would try this out and I’m so impressed! It’s not sticky - it’s made with açaí and mango butter & helps lift my lashes without leaving them sticky. I followed up with essence - Lash Princess False Lash Effect Waterproof Mascara CVS: $4.99 and I only used two coats of this. I am loving the volume and dramatic effects and when it came time to take these off, I didn’t find myself scrubbing for days. Because I’ve been home (and will be home) for the foreseeable future - I haven’t wear tested these just yet, but I’m definitely going to keep using and repurchasing these!!
Mind blowing dupe 👄
I almost can’t believe this one, now this one is not a color dupe but a texture, look and feel dupe. Are you ready to hear something crazy? Dior gifted me their new DIOR - ADDICT STELLAR HALO SHINE lipstick in the shade 976 Be Dior Star which is a beautiful fuchsia as you can see in the photo and the texture immediately reminded me of something I already have in my collection, the UNDONE BEAUTY - Light On Lip I swatched them both side to side and yes, I was right. The texture, the look and feel of the product on the lips is super similar!! They both feel hydrating and have, as you can see, a lot of shimmer. The shimmer doesn’t translate to the lips, it just add that reflective sheen that looks so pretty! The shade is definitely different but I just went on the Undone website and it looks like REALLY RUBY would be a great color match! Again, it all comes down to price. The Dior lipstick is $38 a pop and Undone is $10 each. I knocked one star down for the Undone lipstick because I’ve had it for just a little while and it’s a bit hard to twist to get the product to come up.
Mono chrome that packs a punch 💥
I am in love with this palette. The pigment is insane! The shadows are buttery to the touch and blend amazing. I love how you can create so many different looks with this palette. Also has a killer highlighter in the Center that makes you shine bright✨ must have in your collection.
Skin tools I love!
PMD: microdermabrasion tool, I use 1x a month and it helps with texture PMD Clean: facial cleansing device. Every day and night, so gentle but thorough and the back side is rose quartz that heats up, to help serum application! EMS tool: electric muscle stimulator from Japan. exercises the muscles in my face, giving a lifted and contoured look Gold facial roller: from history of who, a great Korean brand. This roller is LUXE, the weight is perfect so it does an amazing job of relieving stress in the skin Dr Dennis gross steamer: love for deep cleansing, Tho I actually really like the traditional way of steaming which is face over a bowl of hot water
SPOT THE DIFFERENCE
so i tested two foundations side by side.... Too Faced - Born This Way Foundation lets start with this one... i had seen so many people rave about this foundation on instagram, youtube, and in reviews. i saved up my money and made the plunge to buy this from ulta when i had a birthday coupon. i was super excited at first to have my hands on this. i would say this is a higher medium coverage - my freckles still peek through a bit. Believe Beauty - Skin Finish Foundation i recently purchased this because i was very curious about this $5 foundation. then i was upset for spending $40 on a foundation (too faced born this way) when this $5 foundation did the exact same thing!! i tested these two products side by side. the too faced is on the right and the believe beauty is on the left. i bet you couldnt tell a difference. i primed and set both sides with the same product, and i applied two layers for each side. these two foundations look the exact same in my opinion, so why spend $40 on something that you can get the same outcome with a $5 dupe?
