Copper Eyes


This isn't my regular colour choice when it comes to my eye makeup, I'm more or a cool tone kind of girl. But since purchasing the Copper Fizz Eyeshadow from Maybelline I just had to do this makeup look and I wanted to show you how I actually created the look. I haven't done a post in this style before so bear with me as I try my best and any feedback is greatly appreciated. Let's get into it...

This is my first time bare faced on my blog so please be nice, and I hope I haven't scared you too much already. I've started off with my base done. 
I wanted to show you the skincare products I apply before putting on my makeup. I'm sure you're sick of seeing Soap & Glory on my blog but I really do love these products, and use them on the daily. Nothing else compares at the drugstore to there quality or how they perform on my skin. 
Skincare: Soap & Glory Make Yourself Youthful Super Serum // Soap & Glory You Won't Believe Your Eyes Eye Cream // Soap & Glory Feel Good Factor Moisturiser //
Base: Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot Primer // Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation // The Body Shop Shade Adjusting Lightening Drops // Real Techniques Expert Face Brush // Beauty Blender // Maybelline Anti-Age Rewind Brightening Concealer // NYX HD Concealer in 01 // Barry M Light Reflecting Concealer // 

Brows: My brows are already filled in with the Soap & Glory Archery Pencil with the Model Co More Brows Brow Gel

Step 1: Blend Soap & Glory It's About Primer Eye Primer all over the eyelid to prime and keep your eyeshadow lasting all day long.

Step 2: I then go in with the Maybelline Sultry Sand Eyeshadow over the top of the primer using the Real Techniques Bold Metals 200 Brush which prevents the primer and your eyeshadow from creasing and also helps the eyeshadows to blend seamlessly.

Step 3Next is time for the base of the look and it's a beautiful copper shade from Rimmel, this is from the Kate range and I love these Shadow Sticks this particular one is in Rose Gold

Step 4: Now we have the base on, it's time for the star of the show. The Maybelline Color Drama Eyeshadow in Copper Fizz is such a beautiful shimmery copper shade which is such a great affordable eyeshadow. I use the the Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush.
The Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette is my current favourite at the minute, it's out of my comfort zone and I have been loving trying these out to create different warm looks. But anyway, I used a few shades from the palette for this look...

Step 5: ...I take Freshly Toasted in the crease with this Blending Brush to blend out the copper shade and add some extra definition. I then smudge this along the lower lash line too as I just cannot go without anything on my lower lashes anymore.

Step 6This is such a beautiful shade and I love using this on the outer corner to add some depth to the look. This is the shade Subtle Blend. I also smudge some of this along the lower lash line too. So for anyone who isn't used to such warm coppery shades, this is a great way to transition to those tones.

Step 7To finish off the eyeshadow, I use a small pencil brush to apply the shade Beans Are White on the outer corner and the lower lash line to place it exactly where I want the colour and then go back to the blending brush to make it fade seamlessly.

Step 8: I also put this along the top lash line using this Flat Brush. I prefer to use eyeshadow rather than eyeliner as I think it looks better and I want as much of the copper and bronze tone to show as possible. I ended up putting some of the Too Faced Eyeliner along the top lash line and smudging out with the flat brush to add some extra darkness. 

Step 9Now to line the top waterline. I didn't realise just how gross this looks when taking photos of this so this was the easiest way to show you without grossing you all out. I am obsessed with the Too Faced Perfect Eyeliner in Perfect Black. I also apply this on the lower lash line too.

Step 10: Is mascara and I am loving the Benefit Roller Lash, and although I do normally curl my lashes using my Japonesque Eyelash Curlers, it's not something that is a necessity on an everyday basis at least. 

That's eyes done. I really like how this turned out and I will definitely be rocking this look again. I'm going to finish off the complexion now and show you what I use and how I apply everything.

Starting off with bronzer and the Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Bronzer which is my favourite bronzer ever. I use the Real Techniques Duo-Fibre Face Brush as this applies the perfect amount, and this is the brush I go back to to make sure everything is blended and to give a natural look. I apply this on my temples and forehead, cheeks and the chin and neck to make sure it all looks seamless and matchy matchy. 

Now it's time for contouring and I will be doing a post on how I contour but this is just a quick guide. I used the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow and I use the sculpt size with the Real Techniques Bold Metals 301 Brush which has a nice sharp edge to really get under those cheekbones and sculpt your skin. SO I go under my cheekbones, around my temples and forehead and then under my chin, similar areas to my bronzer, but I then also go down the sides of my nose as well as across the bridge just to slim it out and make it look a bit more straight. 

As for blush the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Posh and is a neutral tone to go with the eyes as well as the pinky nude lip. My favourite blush brush is the Look Good Feel Better Angled Contour Brush as this is the perfect size and shape to apply blush in one sweep which is great if you'er a beginner to makeup or in a rush.

Possibly my favourite part of my makeup is highlighter and my current favourite is the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Highlight which is such a beautiful gold shade that is great with this look to add a beautiful radiant glow.

I'm not a massive powder user but the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light is on a whole other level and I cannot get enough of this stuff. I like to use the Look Good Fell Better Powder Brush to apply any powder, translucent or illuminating. I apply as little powder as I can but I like to set the centre of my forehead, under my eyes and down my nose and on my cheeks. It gives the most beautiful glow which is what I like my makeup to look like. If you want a more affordable alternative then check out the Makeup Revolution Radiance Palette and also check out my review/face off on both of these products here

Whether I use any powder or not, I always go in with a facial spray and my current favourite is the L'Oreal Infalliable Pro Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray. This settles any powder I have on my face and settle the other makeup products in to my skin and obviously keep it locked in in place all day.

I hope you liked this makeup look and the step by step tutorial to achieve this. If you recreate this look or have a copper makeup look then I would love to see it.

What is your favourite warm toned palette?
