For us in beauty land, there’s no better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day than with a heavy-handed slick of green. As others paint the town green with leprechaun hats and four-leaf clover paraphernalia (and guzzle down Guinness) in ode of the patron saint of Ireland, we are celebrating thy holy Irish day with green-inspired beauty instead. And to get the party started, it’s dream team Hung Vanngo and Selena Gomez.

Posting a photo of Selena Gomez with sexy, slithery, minty fresh lids, Vanngo has set the mood for today’s green-inspired festivities. A soft apple green swallowed up Gomez’s entire lid with the kind of experimental glee we’ve come to know and love of the pair. Ironically, with the luck of the Irish, it’s also the biggest eye trend of 2019, with celebrities far and wide going green with eyeshadow, eyeliner and mascara. Serving a superb pearly sheen, Gomez’s lids also play with frost, another 90s comeback kid worth a second go.

But for today, we’re content with just a mere smear of green across lids. Have a happy St. Patrick’s Day with the following green eye products.
