I love coppery eyes, especially in the summer when it’s all about the bronze! This is a fairly easy Copper Eye look and fun to create! I love adding a pop of color to my lower lash line to really make my eyes stand out. I would love to see your summer eye looks, so please leave them in the comments. Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!
BEFORE AND AFTER:
Copper Eye TUTORIAL:
Step 1: Add a sunscreen to your face to protect from the sun. I used Coola Classic Sunscreen in Fresh Mango.
Step 2: Prime your face using any type of face primer. This will prolong the wear of your makeup. I used SmashBox Photo Finish Primer.
Step 3: Apply a golden glow cream to your entire face. This will allow a little shimmer to peak through in the sunlight. I used Marcelle BB Cream in Golden Glow.
Step 4: Apply a thin even layer of a light coverage foundation to the skin. You can build up the layers if you need more coverage. I used Maybelline Dream Wonder Fluid-Touch Foundation in Ivory.
Step 5: Apply a concealer under the eyes to cover dark circles and brighten the under eye area. I used Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser in Fair.
Step 6: Apply a face powder to set the makeup. I used Maybelline Dream Wonder Powder in Ivory.
Step 7: Apply an eyebrow pencil to fill in any sparse spots. I used Chella Tantalizing Taupe Eyebrow Color.
These are the initial steps to the face makeup. Click here to see a picture of how the makeup looks at this point.
NOW ONTO THE EYES:
Step 8: I am using Be a Bombshell Cosmetics Eyeshadow Palette in Bora Bora.
First apply a light shimmery pink eye shadow to the brow bone. I used Loreal Wear Infinite Eye Shadow in Taffeta.
1.) Apply this color with a fluffy brush in the crease as a transition shade.
Next apply a bronze/copper base to make the eye shadows pop and last all day. I used Cailyn Cosmetics Gel Eyeliner in Bronze.
2.) Apply this color to the entire eye lid.
3.) Apply this color to the outer V of the eye and blend into the crease.
4.) Apply this color to the lower lash line.
Step 9: Apply wing eyeliner. I used Physicians Formula Sexy Booster Cat Eye Collection Liquid Eyeliner.
Step 10: Apply your favorite mascara to the top and bottom lashes. I used Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (personally I love the name).
This is what the finished eyes will look like!
NOW TO FINISH THE FACE:
Step 11: Now to finish the face. Apply a bronzer around the edges of the face to bronze. I didn’t do a heavy contour because it is summer time and I was just going for a summery glow. I used NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny.
Step 12: Apply Blush to the apples of the cheek and sweep back to your hairline. I used Be a Bombshell Cosmetics Blush in Sweet Cheeks.
Step 13: Apply a highlighter to the top of the cheek bones. I used Laura Geller Baked Highlighter in Golden Rose.
Step 14: Finally a nude lip gloss to finish the look. I used NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Sugar Pie.
