St Patrick’s Day Green Smokey Eye Makeup

Get into the St Patrick's Day spirit with this step-by-step guide for creating a sultry green smokey eye, the perfect party makeup tutorial!

If there was ever an excuse to rock a green eyeshadow, it’s St Patrick’s Day. But we’re not talking 80s inspired lime green block colour, oh no. We’re thinking a sultry, smokey emerald eye; festive enough for the weekend celebrations, but sexy enough to wear with your favourite cocktail dress this St Paddy’s Day!



  1. Charlotte's Light Wonder Kit with Light Wonder foundation, Magic Complexion Brush and Magic Cream 15ml

    Step 1: Prep & prime skin

    Always prep and prime your skin with Charlotte’s Magic Cream moisturiser, Wonderglow face primer and Light Wonder foundation for a flawless base that will leave you with glowing, fresh skin.

  2. Swatch of a shimmery powder eyeshadow in a soft champagne shade.

    Step 2: Apply prime shade

    Using the Luxury Palette eyeshadow palette in The Rebel, apply the Prime shade all over the lid and in the corner of the eyes to brighten and widen your gaze. The Eye Blender Brush is the perfect tool for this!

  3. A shimmery, khaki-bronze-coloured powder eyeshadow.

    Step 3: Apply enhance shade

    Use the Eye Smudger brush to nestle the Enhance shade in the outer corner crease, and blend. Then apply across the upper and lower lash line for a defined look.

  4. Swatch of a shimmery, powder eyeshadow in a smokey green shade.

    Step 4: Apply smoke shade

    Blend the Smoke shade from the outer corner up and inwards of your eyelid and across the upper and lower lash line.

  5. Swatch of a shimmery, powder eyeshadow in a bright golden shade.

    Step 5: Apply pop shade

    Using your ring finger, apply the Pop shade directly on the eyelid for a super glam, disco look!

  6. Swatch of a black kohl pencil with the open liner pencil in front of it and its cap next o it.

    Top tip: Use Rock 'n' Kohl eyeliner
