Here's my copper eye shadow tutorial! I wanted to do something different and dramatic using some new copper shadows I've got. I love coppers on blue eyes, but they look great on all eye colors! This is a dramatic, very copper eye look with a different shape than I normally go for, but I am a big fan. Follow along if you wanna see how I created it.
Personally, I like this look with a purple lip, but I included a picture with a nude lip too.
Here's the video version if you perfer those!
Prime your lids! I am using Lorac Behind the Scenes Primer.
Brush some Saucebox Beaming (matte, pale white-yellow) from the crease to the brow bone as a base shadow. I have a bit of a false tan here, so I went for a slightly darker base shadow. I use a Simga E60 to apply.
Put Mac Coppering (shimmer, bright red-copper) all over the lid. I use a Mac 242 for this.
Now, following the weird shape I made with dots apply Mac Saddle (matte, warm brown). So you're applying from the crease up to under the brow. I use a Simga E40 for this.
Apply some Mac Red Brick (matte, red-orange) just inside where we applied Saddle. I use a Sigma E45 for this step.
We're blending a lot of shadows here, so now add Mac Brown Script (matte, warm burnt orange) with a Sigma E45).
To add more depth to just the crease, add a touch of Mac Embark (matte, warm brown) only into the outer third of the crease. I use a Sigma E45 for this as well.
Now bleeeend it all together. I am using a Mac 217 for this.
To blend out the lower lash line, start with Mac Saddle and apply it along the lower lash line. I use a Sigma E45 for this, but opt for a smaller brush (pencil brush) if you don't want it so dramatic.
Blend it out.
Use a pencil brush to add some Mac Antiqued (shimmer, deep copper brown) to the outer third of the lash line.
Here's where it's going to get fun. On a pencil brush apply some of Mac Shadowy Lady (matte, deep purple) along the lower lash line.
Drag it up along the crease, too.
I went for a copper highlight, too. Wet a brush with some type of setting spray (I used NYX Matte Setting Spray and a pencil brush) and pack on Mac Copper Sparkles (shimmer-glitter pigment, copper) into the inner corner.
Add a touch of gold to the very inner corner. I used a pencil brush to apply Urban Decay Half Baked (shimmer, bright gold).
Line your eyes, the water line, tight line and upper lash line with a black pencil. I am using Nars Larger than Life Pencil in Vio Venito. Then, using an angled brush pack Mac Shadowy Lady over the top to give it a deep purple look.
Add lashes and mascara and you're done!
