St. Patrick’s Day Beauty Products! (Irish Girl-Approved)

Growing up with fair skin wasn’t easy, to say the least.  I can’t even tell you how many summers I spent in the shade, slathered in sunblock, watching my friends rub baby oil on their skin and soon after get the sexiest golden tan that you could possibly imagine.  It’s a simple fact: being pale with freckles wasn’t desirable when I was a teenager; however, now, at almost 30, I am SO GLAD that I was born with freckled, Irish skin that I was given.  Why?  Well, for one, I look way younger (and age slower) than everyone else and it’s really just now that I’m starting to appreciate that little fact.  Sure, a nice tan makes you look thinner, but that’s what spray tans are for…I digress.  With St. Patrick’s Day coming up, I got to thinking about my fair-skinned beauty tricks that I’ve learned over the years, mixed with a little Irish makeup fun.

Don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel! My manager has been giving me tips and my videos are definitely getting better, if I do say so myself, haha.

Featured in the video:

Neutrogena Beach Defense Water + Sun Sunscreen SPF 30: a MUST for everyone. Learn more about their Helioplex Complex HERE.

Fusion Beauty PrimeResults Anti-Redness Primer: This primer is great for fair, Irish skin since rosacea is quite common.  The primer has claims that show 50% reduction in overall redness after only six weeks.

Lancome Flash Bronzer Anti-Age: Every pale-skinned girl needs a good self-tanner!  I’m a longtime fan of Lancome’s tanning products; they don’t streak and they give a natural bronzy glow.

Sue Devitt Hydrating Marine Minerals Eye Palette in “Green Isles”: Probably the prettiest green eye palette that you’ll ever find.

COVERGIRL Liquiline Blast eyeliner in “Green Glow”: If you want a subtle green eyes look for St. Patrick’s Day, this bright green eyeliner is the way to go.

Physician’s Formula Shimmer Strips Glam Hazel Eyes mascara: Gold mascara? YES.  It reminds me of the whole “pot o’ gold” thing that used to make me so excited as a little kid.

St. Patrick’s Day Gift Guide

So St. Patrick’s Day is totally the forgotten holiday when it comes to presents and being raised in a predominantly Irish and Italian area of New York, St. Patrick’s Day was always a HUGE deal and a big celebration in school as well.  Since this is my first St. Patty’s in LA, and there aren’t many Irish people out here, I decided to call a little extra attention to the biggest drinking day of the year.  And, as my freckled counterpart, Ashley Brady, says “on behalf of Ireland, we thank you.”

Sue Devitt Hydrating Marine Minerals Eye Palette in “Green Isles”

This beautiful Destination Eye Palette just screams the rolling green hills of Ireland to me.  The colors, though green, are universally flattering and blendable.  I’m kind of in love with this palette.

Michelle Roy is known for her trendy and fun designs and I’m really into both of these pieces.

Wood and coral stretch bracelets with charm, SRP $58

Chain with clover, SRP $72

Erin Condren is one of those brands that people instantly fall in love with and if you’re super Irish, you NEED some St. Patty’s Day paper goods like these gift labels, flat note cards, folded greeting cards, etc.  Best of all- the entire St. Patrick’s Day collection is 20% off!!!
