I know I said the blog post would be up tomorrow 😦 but I was just feeling so rough the past few days I’m sleeping and napping all the time, so apologies for the delay of posts. Best start downing that berroca because momma will kill me if I get sick, they always know best after all!!!
I was looking around MAC of course the other day and I spotted this gorgeous copper pigment and I could not put it down, I had to get it such a gorgeous intense copper colour ughh in love!! Rather than just doing a regular copper smoked eye, I added a twist of a double winged liner which I personally feel it needed for extra detailing just for fun….
I didn’t actually take pictures of steps for this makeup look, instead I filled in my face chart because I feel like it might be easier to show it. To be honest I was so tempted to just whip out the camera and start recording a video, but I don’t have the greatest of lighting currently. But I think, I actually might start making youtube videos this year once I get proper lighting who knows!! Seems like a fun project but I will still post blog posts of course. So enough of my rambling nonsense I’ll get straight into it!!!
Products used to achieve this look:
- MAC’s pigment in (Copper Sparkle)

- Sleek’s makeup (ultra mattes palette)
- The Naked Palette by (Urban Decay)
- Inglot’s mattifying pressed powder in (301)

How to achieve this look :
- Prime and moisturise your face to keep it lovely and hydrated and to create a smooth canvas.
- Apply an eyeshadow base so that the there is no fallout from the shadow and it prevents any creasing, I used MAC’s painterly.
- With a large fluffy blending brush lightly buff a light brown shade in the crease to create your transition shade.
- Then dampen a flat eyeshadow brush, so that the pigment sticks well and apply the copper pigment all over the lid.
- Then using that same brown for the transition shade go back into the crease and blend the two together because we don’t want any harsh lines.
- Using a darker brown eyeshadow just contour the outer corner of the eye and the inner and blend it all out, this creates definition for the eye and depth.
- Using gel/liquid liner trace out your wing and line the top lid. Then on the lash line use the dark brown and draw a line parallel tot the previous line we drew with the liner and sharpen it up with liner if you prefer a sharper look. Then use a white shadow and highlight in-between the two lines so they stand out.
- Then fill in your brows as normal, apply one coat of mascara and lashes if you like the more dramatic fun look.
- Onto your face, apply foundation with a stippling brush evenly making sure that there are no patches. Apply under eye concealer also to your nose forehead chin and cupids bow, blend blend blend!!!
- Contour your face using a bronzer and highlighter, I used Sleeks contour and blush palette, then set with pressed powder.
- Line the lips and fill in with a nude/pink lipstick I used MAC’s Brave lipstick and Soar liner.
- YOUR LOOK IS COMPLETEEEE!!!!! XXXX
Here are some close ups of the finished look, hope you like it!!! I will have another blog post up either on Friday or Sunday I promise…
