St. Patrick's Day! Get your green on with these green makeups

Hello Gorgeous!
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
 There is much to celebrate today and make St Patrick proud. You do know that Patrick was not Irish, right?

More on that below along with today's beauty product feature full of gorgeous green tones from Palladio and Glo Minerals cosmetics for today's celebrations honoring the Irish!

The Glo Minerals cosmetics are amazing and a professional line that every day ladies can use!

glo minerals

Our award-winning formulations deliver unsurpassed coverage, UV and environmental protection and an exceptional spectrum of mineral pigments. Talc-free and non-comedogenic, glo minerals provides the ideal choice for even the most sensitive skin.
• Exceptional coverage that lasts
• Powerful antioxidant blend
• Talc-free

 I have Glo Minerals eye shadows in Rain Forest on the left, and Fern on the right, to create a smokey green St Patricks Day eye look. The eyeliner is Deep Olive with a smudge tool on the end.

 The Glo Minerals eye shadows are $18.50 each and the eyeliner is $16.00. The shadows are super smooth with high pigment load and a lot of blendability. (*I'm pretty sure that is not a word in Webster's Dictionary, but it's definitely a word in my own!)  The eyeliner is soft enough to draw a smooth line but firm enough to not break off.

Now, Palladio Beauty is one of my favorite lines for being budget friendly and effective!

Created more than 25 years ago, Palladio is renowned for its line of color cosmetics enriched with herbs and vitamins. Fashioned for women with all types of skin, Palladio helps you look radiant while helping protect your skin from the signs of aging. 

Among the ingredients used in Palladio products are antioxidants such as Ginseng, Green Tea, Gingko Biloba, Vitamin E and natural humectants and skin soothers such as Aloe Vera and Chamomile. Palladio is beautiful and beneficial.

“Pretty”, “Colorful and easy”, “High qualityand “On-trend” that’s Palladio.

 These Palladio eyeliners from left to right: Sea Foam Green, Dark Green, Olive, Lime Green, Olive, and my favorite, Emerald Sparkle.

The basic eyeliners are $6 each, the retractable is $5, the jumbo eyeliner crayon is $6 and the sparkle eyeliner is $5.

These are smooth and gentle on the eye and a great value. If you need a last minute pop of green to your makeup, get some Palladio from a Sally's Beauty Supply near you!

Now let's talk eye shadow sets from Palladio. There are two wee round discs and one quad.
 Palladio eye shadows have a good pigment load and blend well, though just so you know, the shimmer shades have A LOT of shimmer to them!
