Coppering was one of the first eyeshadows I bought from MAC. It was a bit of an impulse buy, and after getting back home and trying it under natural lighting, I found the color a bit too frosty and bright for my liking. I didn't use it much after that, and it's only recently that I have finally figured out how to use this color. Coppering pairs beautifully with a lot of the MAC warm brown eyeshadows, and for today's makeup look, I have added Urban Decay's Loaded to the mix.
|For my eyes, I used: |
Smashbox Photofinish Lid Primer
Urban Decay Eyeliner Pencil - Loaded
MAC Eyeshadows - Soba, Coppering, Saddle
Chanel Le Volume Mascara in Black
Here's a quick how-to on an easy copper and green eye makeup look with MAC eyeshadows - Coppering, Soba, and Saddle - starting with a scary nekkid face photo...well, almost nekkid, since I did add in a bit of concealer and foundation and dabbed on some lipstick. I usually don't apply concealer over my eyelids, but I have added that here.
And this is the finished look - I kept the rest of the makeup neutral too with a peach-nude lipstick and a soft blush.
So..umm..I forgot to take a photo of the lipstick or the blush, but if you don't mind a bit of Google searching, it's NARS Tzigane lipstick and NARS cream blush Montenegro.
Not really related to this post - I stopped by a MAC store today and picked up Blacktrack. Also wanted to pick up a good loose/pressed powder to set my makeup and keep the oil a bit under control, but I just didn't have the patience to deal with the SAs at the counter. Any suggestions on a good powder I could try (don't want anything with shimmer)?
