Makeup Tutorial | Spring Copper Eye

Spring is here ladies and gentleman!!! YEEE!! So so exciting!! Even more exciting it's FINALLY baseball season :) :) haha anyway, here's a little spring tutorial using coppery shades. If you try this look you will be amazed as to how much more beautiful it looks in person than what is captured on camera. I literally go for this look almost every day now I love it that much. These tones will compliment almost any eye color, but especially bring out those green and baby blue eyes.

 1. After priming the lid, mix "Creme Brûlée" and "Peach Smoothie" (both by Makeup Geek) and apply generously to the crease with Sigma E40. Blend well.

2. Using Sigma E25 apply MAC "Brown Script" in the crease blending with transition shades. I find going in windshield wiper and circular motions work best with blending.
** If you are wondering how to perfectly blend out shadows so there are no harsh lines, applying a transition shade (in this case, Creme Brûlée & Peach Smoothie) helps your blending tremendously (MAC "Soft Brown" is my fav). It may seem like you cover up this layer with other shadows, but it makes such a difference in giving that "smoked out" look.

3. Next, take Tarte Amazonian Clay Smokey Shadow Stick in "Bronze" and apply to the lid.
Similar: Makeup Geek "Brown Sugar", Anastasia "Truffle" from Lavish Palette (or "Rum Cake" for lighter look), Too Faced "Haute Chocolate" from Chocolate Bar Palette ** Any brown shades with a copper undertone will work**

4. Go back in with the E25 and apply "Cocoa Bear" (Makeup Geek) and work into the crease just to make sure there aren't any harsh lines between the lid & crease ((this shade is almost identical to Brown Script, just slightly darker. I used this for added depth.))

Photo on the right reflects a more "true to color" photo than the other two. 
5. Next, spray MAC 242 with Fix+ and pick up "Coppering" by MAC. Add this to the outer lid, blending inward. I also stroked the brush into the crease to blend.

6. Add MAC "Gesso" to the brow bone to highlight, & MAC "Nylon" in Tear Duct.

7. Add a black winged liner (as always with me!), and tight line the upper waterline with a black liner (MAC Definedly Black), and the bottom with a nude liner (NARS Rue Bonaparte).

8. Then, smoke out the bottom lash line with "Brown Script" using any pencil brush. Make sure you take this the entire way over--inner corner to outer corner. Blend. Blend. Blend. Smoking out the lower lash line is really going to finish this look.

9. And finally, add mascara, and some falsies (MAC #7). I also used Milani Luminoso on the cheeks and Revlon Primrose + Stormy Pink on the lips.
