MAC Coppering Eyeshadow (available here) - $15/$12Color: 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/FOTDAs 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.
