Copper shadow and green eyes are BFFs in my book. Of course it looks great on all eye colors, really, but I especially love how it pops against green. I went for this look for an afternoon baby shower this weekend and was really happy with how it turned out, so I thought I'd share with you what I did in a little FOTD.
I used the Maybelline Master Prime on my cheeks, undereyes, and forehead to both smooth out the look of my skin and extend the life of my blush (which always seems to disappear first). Next up, to add a little illumination to my cheeks and the bridge of my nose I used the Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint in Pearl. This has the smallest amount of shimmer throughout the tinted moisturizer to add a lovely glow to your face without actually looking like a disco ball. I've really been enjoying using the NYX HD concealer blended in with a damp sponge and set it with the cult fave Rimmel Stay Matte powder in transparent.
The standard combo of the Anastasia Brow Wiz in Soft Brown and the Benefit Gimme Brow in Light/Medium. If it ain't broke don't fix it...
I added a bit of Nars Laguna Bronzer to the hollows of my cheeks and my temples for a little warmth. You all know about my love for the Laura Geller blush in Pink Grapefruit, so of course I popped that onto my cheeks and topped of everything with a bit of Mary-Lou Manizer from theBalm, because it's just so pretty!
Nada- just a bit of Vaseline!
Onto my fave part of this whole look- the eyes! I used the e.l.f. eye primer in sheer to get my lids ready for shadow. The Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics palette has proved to be so much more useful than I ever thought it would be. I used Stark, the nude pink as a quick wash of neutral shadow from lash line to brow, and then Frisk, the taupe-gray as a transition shade in the crease. For the star of the show, I used my favorite coppery shadow, Garnet, from the Lorac Pro palette all over the lid, building it up and blending out the edges until I was happy with the color intensity. I took Black from the same palette as a soft and slightly smoky liner along the top and bottom lash lines for some definition, then added the NYX Slide on Pencil in Jet Black in the upper and lower waterlines to intensify it a bit more. I typically only bring the liner on the lower lash line about two-thirds of the way in so my eyes look more open and not too closed-off. Adding Tarte's Lights, Camera, Lashes on the top lashes and Clinique's Bottom Lash Mascara on the bottom finished it off.
