Get The Look: Copper Brown Eyes

If you follow me on Instagram then you would have seen this look posted on there about a week ago. If you don't follow me on Instagram then you know I'm questioning why but still here it is. (love you really)

This look is perfect for the evening time if you're someone that doesn't want a full smokey eye but likes to have a little colour. It's also super easy even if you aren't into make up! I used the Smashbox Full Exposure palette and the Make Up Revolution Iconic 3 palette to brighten up the pigmentation as the Smashbox Pallette wasn't as intense as I would have liked.

To start of this look, you want to prime your eyes, I usually use a concealer, today I used Mac Pro Longwear concealer in NC15 & 20. I then took a fluffy brush and a soft brown colour in the crease of my eye lid to give it that definition.

I then went in with the light ivory shimmer shade on the inner corner of the eye with a flat eye shadow brush from the Smashbox palette, followed by the darker ivory colour next to it.

Followed by a shimmer toupe and the copper colour from the Make Up  Revolution Iconic 3 palette. (Apologies that this photo doesn't show the true copper tone like the next photo)

Then, on the outter corner with the shimmery chocolate brown colour and the last brown shadow from the Iconic 3 palette as it had a nice copper and red shimmer undertone to blend in well with the copper shade! I then went back in, blending in the colours where they meet and going back in where I  think may need intensifying.

I went in with an eye liner that took me forever as I'm no liner pro and it senses my fear so it always messes up. I need to get a chunkier pen liner as this one is difficult and the Eyeko Skinny Liner is pants over eye shadow! 

My bottom lashes were coated.. 

Falsies we're applied.. 

And voila! A copper brown eye look complete! 

You can swap and change any of the colours that blend well together to make it your own style. I prefer it on Instagram so I'm going to be doing more collages on there but maybe step by steps on here! Enjoy

I just want to say that this is one of my first make up looks on the blog, so if the pictures are crap and the lighting isn't good then I'm sorry, I'm still learning!
