No matter how much Irish DNA you have, Saint Patrick’s Day is the holiday of luck, gold and late night celebrations. (Even if you’re just celebrating at home this year.) It’s also a time to experiment when it comes to beauty. Sure, you could just cover your face with shamrock paint. We want something a little more creative, though. Still festive but with a decidedly glamorous vibe. So we’re turning to the runways for some green makeup inspo.

Green makeup gets a bad rap. But it can actually be beautiful and flattering in all forms. Afraid green won’t look good on you? There’s no reason to worry since greens enhance all skin tones and eye colors. You simply have to find the right shade for you. Emerald shadow and neon green mascara are great ways to make your eyes pop. A pastel green or even glittering ivy lipstick will make your lips stand out. So anyone can go green on March 17.

Don’t believe us? These runway beauty looks will inspire you to give green a try. You can even sport them way beyond Saint Patrick’s Day.
