Every year when March rolls around, there’s just one thing on our minds: St. Patrick’s Day! The 17th is just around the corner.

Now, we’ll be honest — we’re sick of seeing the same “Kiss Me I’m Irish” t-shirts and green tights parading around town year after year. We’ve got a new way for you to express your fondness for Irish culture and green beer – through your beauty routine! After all, Emerald Green is Pantone’s 2013 Color of the Year… so why not start stocking up on the shade?

Of course there are endless great options for fun green nail polish (always a favorite) but have you considered fake lashes with green tips? What about a green lip color? Want to stand out at a music festival? Go for green crystals! Looking for a more subtle option? A green twistband is the way to go! See all of our picks below.

Try these green ideas to shake up your make up for St. Patrick’s Day!
