st patrick's day In honour of St Patrick's Day, we're going to talk about all things green. From skin ingredients to how to pull off green makeup. Green is the theme!

St Patrick's Day Skincare

St Patrick's Day is the one day a year you can go crazy with the colour green and no one will bat an eyelid! It's the perfect excuse to try out colours you'd never usually go for. But of course, before you can confidently pull off a bold makeup look, you need to ensure your skin is flawless and healthy. We've listed a few ingredients which are fantastic for the skin.

Aloe Vera st patrick's day

This a strong anti-inflammatory ingredient which heals and moisturises inflamed skin. Aloe Vera has exhibited the ability to stimulate collagen and elastin synthesis and aid in the removal of dead skin cells. You can find this ingredient in glo-therapeutics Gentle Eye Makeup Remover. Gently and effectively remove all traces of eye makeup with this non-oily, anti-inflammatory formula. It has been both allergy and clinically tested to be non-irritating for the delicate eye area and so is suitable for all skin types and conditions.

As with Aloe Vera, cucumber is also known for its anti-inflammatory effect on the skin. This ingredient has high water content, amino acids, proteins, lipids and Vitamin C to relieve irritation, puffiness and dehydration. What's more, it's silica content can help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. We love this ingredient so much we based an entire product around it - the glo-therapeutics Cucumber Recovery Mask. It reduces inflammation in sensitive and post-procedure skin. Soothes, hydrates and tones while relieving puffiness and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive and dehydrated skin.

Green Tea Extractsst patrick's day

All glo-minerals makeup is formulated with an exclusive blend of antioxidants, including Vitamins A, C, E and Green Tea Extracts. Green Tea has incredible benefits for the skin, from helping to fight ageing skin, including sagging skin, sun damage, age spots, fine lines and wrinkle to helping to draw out impurities, reduce large pores and give your skin a healthy glow. The benefits of Green Tea are endless.

St Patrick's Day Makeup

Green can be a scary colour to pull off, which is why we think less is more. Take inspiration from some of our favourite instagram looks below, where glo-minerals Precise Micro Eyeliner in Teal is used to add that extra touch of drama to the eyes. Use our glo-minerals Smoky Eye Kit - Warm to add depth to the crease and a little shimmer to the centre of the eyelid. Then apply a very thin line of glo-minerals Precise Micro Eyeliner in Teal to the upper lashline, then apply into the waterline and smoke out into the lower lashline. This will really make your eyes pop! Learn how to create a warm smoky eye with the Smoky Eye Kit here.

Apply glo-minerals Eyeshadow in shade Bamboo all over the lid to brighten the eye. Then take your glo-minerals Precise Micro Eyeliner in Teal and create a bold winged liner look. To add the glitter effect, you could use our Dust 24k. First put a little Shadow Primer onto your brush to help the glitter stick. Dip your brush into Dust 24k and then carefully pack it on top of the liner for added dramatic effect.
