This is one of my favourite looks. I decided I would share my thoughts on the products I used to create this and a few pictures on how on how it turned out.
So, with any eye look make sure you prime the lid. I normally use Mac Paint Pot in the colour 'Painterly.' If you don't have a primer then use concealer it is a good substitute.
Once primed, start with the crease and use a neutral warm tone brown. This is your transition shade which will help you blend when you use a more pigmented and dark colour and this will make blending so much easier for you!
Once the transition shade is blended out on your crease we can have some fun with the colour.
In the picture you will see four single eye shadows. This is custom made Anastasia Beverly Hills palette to suit my liking.
I used the top left hand corner 'Red Earth' to go over the transition shade. This is a warm reddy brown shade which compliments the copper beautifully.
Once applied and blended to the heavens I can now focus on the best part and that is glitter!
I want the main focus to be on my lid, so using a flat brush I sprayed with Mac Fix Plus finishing spray and dip into the bottom right hand corner of the palette 'Wine' and work it in to the lid.
Using Mac Fix Plus to wet my brush helps with added pigment and make your eyes simply pop.
When I have finished patting the copper onto the lid, I again blend into the crease so there are no harsh lines.
I love my glitter ( which many of you will know ) I always use a pressed glitter to really make the lid stand out and as you can see from the picture its one of my popular choices as I am hitting the pan.
This one is from Colour Pop it is called 'Game Face.' I ordered this straight from the USA so be warned if you are going to purchase this then you may be stung with a tax bill. I will let you know if and when they ship to the U.K so at least you avoid paying more than you bargained for.
With this pressed pigment it is a lot easier to pat this on the lid using your finger. The texture is a soft gel so using your finger will give you better control and more pigment than a brush would pick up.
Again, once I pat on I simply blend blend and well blend. I finish the look by adding a highlight in my tear duct and under the brow bone. I used Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminator in 'Pure Hollywood' which is the perfect champagne gold. Then finish with winged liner and mascara.
Hope you enjoyed this blog post and let me know if you created it or something similar!
