3 Things: St. Patrick’s Day

St Patricks day makeup 3 Things: St. Patricks Day

Happy Paddy’s Day to ye! Dye that river green, have a pint and eat something salty: it’s time for the 3 Things: St. Patrick’s Day edition.

(And a quick hip hip hooray for Samuel Adams, Heineken and Boston’s Mayor for withdrawing sponsorship/refusing to appear at St. Patrick’s Day parades because gay and lesbian groups aren’t allowed to march openly.)

Favorite green makeup item: I LOVE me a good chartreuse eye shadow. Nothing pops in the inner corner of your eye quite like it. My favorite is MAC Three Ring Yellow.

Every St. Patrick’s Day, I look forward to: Irish Bread Pudding With Caramel Whiskey Sauce, something that tester Pamela Irene introduced me to and that I look forward to eating as much as I do Thanksgiving turkey!

Leprechaun’s aside, my favorite mythical creature is: Medusa is pretty bad ass. I mean, can YOU turn someone to stone with your gaze?

Your turn! Cut and past the following and join us for a round of 3 Things:

    I have to admit; I have a VERY Irish last name and I sent my kid to daycare today without a stitch of green on. I fail at St. Paddy’s Day…

    Favorite green makeup item: Nail polish, natch! A good green glitter is awesome, but a green holo is even better!

    Every St. Patrick’s Day, I look forward to: Drinking Irish whisky at the bar, and every year I punk out and sit at home. Drinking Irish whisky, but still…

    Leprechaun’s aside, my favorite mythical creature is: Oooo, a unicorn! I know they are trendy right now, but I was SUCH a Lisa Frank girl that I can’t quit them…

    I don’t own any green items but there is lots of nail polish that’s green that I wish I had!

    I usually go out to Kells when I’m in the US and I enjoy it! Drinking scotch and being semi reserved listening to great Irish music is the best!

    I’m pretty sure Unicorns are real, so I’m going to have to go with Puma. 10 points if you know the reference!

    Favorite green makeup item: Green eyeliner makes me so happy! I have about ten, but my favorite of the moment is Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Freak, a minty green that I’d be wearing out on the town today if there wasn’t another freaking snowstorm going on.

    Every St. Patrick’s Day, I look forward to: Irish soda bread. My local bakery makes the most scrumptious version, full of raisins. I’m eating a piece right now, listening to The Pogues’ “Red Roses for Me,” another thing I enjoy once a year or so.

    Leprechaun’s aside, my favorite mythical creature is: As much as I love pretty unicorns and mermaids, the Jersey Devil is my #1. I love summer drives through the Pine Barrens on the way to the Jersey Shore, hoping for a glimpse of the JD.

      The Jersey Devil? I too spent many summers driving “down the shore” and I don’t know this legend! Do tell! (And I guess this explains their NHL team name as well!)

      Ha, @tyna , I’m shocked! The Jersey Devil lives in the Pine Barrens, where he flies around and mostly scares people. He’s kind of a chupacabra with wings. There’s a stretch of Route 40 on the way to the shore that’s really spooky after dark!

    Favorite green makeup item: Can’t pick one… gotta have them ALLLLLL. Eyeshadow, eyeliner, glitter, nail polish–going overboard is half the fun ;)
    Every St. Patrick’s Day, I look forward to: an excuse to drink more beer.
    Leprechaun’s aside, my favorite mythical creature is: the LIGER.

    Favorite green makeup item: I have a shimmery olive green loose shadow by OCC that I love. I’d share more specifics but the label is illegible. Senna’s pressed shadow in Emerald is also awesome.
    Every St. Patrick’s Day, I look forward to: a black and tan
    Leprechaun’s aside, my favorite mythical creature is: a centaur…I loved the Hercules cartoon as a kid.
