You know when you were a kid and got light up sneakers, so you’d stomp around all day long and then try to peek down in time to see them light up? That’s me with this makeup.
I love this makeup so, so much. It’s the kind of eye makeup that I find myself trying to look at all day long. I close one eye and try to look through the other eye to see the lid in a mirror. It’s just shimmery, coppery goodness.
It’s my fav look on redheads, but not gonna lie, it really looks good on just about every hair color/ eye color/ skin tone combo I’ve tried it on. A little shade adjusting (darker/lighter) is needed obviously, but overall, copper + dewy skin for the win!
This is a long, full face tutorial, so I don’t want to ramble too much. But just so you don’t feel like you have to use the exact same products as me, here are the key elements, so that you can find and use what you already have.
Key elements to look |
- dewy skin, only matte in t-zone
- copper eye makeup, but you prob already guessed that, ha!
- a matte or satin finish (not shimmer) eye shadow one shade deeper than your skin tone for your crease (transition) shade. The matte or satin looks beautiful against the metallic finish of the copper.
- bronzed cheeks, I use a satin-y cream bronzer as my blush here.
- nude/ish brown lips, to tie the look together but not compete with the copper.
