MAC Eyeshadow: Coppering

Color:  Orange copper
Finish:  Veluxe Pearl
Description:  MAC Coppering is an orange-copper eyeshadow with a metallic sheen finish to it.  The texture is smooth, and it scores high on pigmentation and blendability.  I use this as an all over lid color with a dark brown eyeshadow in the crease.  Other options:  It would work great paired with green and blended along the crease for darker eye looks to give a metallic copper sheen.

MAC COPPERING EYESHADOW - SWATCHES/FOTD

As I mentioned before, I find this the easiest to use as an all over lid color.  Lined the upper and lower lashline with a black eyeliner (Chanel Noir Intense) and applied MAC Coppering all over the lid.  Applied a dark brown shade from the Anastasia She Wears It Well palette to the crease.  Curled lashes and applied my new favorite mascara - Maybelline Mega Plush.  Here's how the eyeshadow looks - in swatches and on my eyes:

I was a bit worried the orangey-copper tones in this eyeshadow might be a little too much for my dark skin tone, but it turned out quite wearable. If you love brown-rust colours and/or want something with a hint of color without straying too far from the safe neutral shades, you will love Coppering.  From what I have read online, I guess this would also be a must-have shade if you have green eyes.

  6. Coppering suits you :) I don't have it but I have a similar shade that came out with the Venomous Villains collection known as De-Vil.

    Another shade you could consider is Amber Lights. It's a bit more 'amber'-ish than orange. It also goes really well with forest green or purple (your favorite :)).
