St. Patty's Day Makeup!

For St. Patty's Day this year, I decided to be festive and do a eye look using greens. Now, being a person who isn't afraid of using color, I have never used green eyeshadow in my life! For some reason, I thought it'd be less wearable than say purples or blues.
With that being said, I also did not have any green shadows to use for the look, so I turned to my little sister's ELF 100 pan eyeshadow palette, which had a pretty good selection of greens. I had never used ELF eyeshadows before either, but I must say I am completely satisfied with the quality of the eyeshadows and have fallen in love with the way green looks against my brown eyes.
I can't believe I didn't try this sooner!
