Four Fun Makeup Looks Using MAC Coppering Eyeshadow

Bright golds are easily accented by blending Coppering eyeshadow into the crease. It also helps keep Coppering looking gorgeous rather than making your eyes look tired.

Add burned flavor to your look by deepening some of your browns with the tones of red from Coppering.

Make oranges even more vibrant with Coppering to emphasize their richness.

To rock pink, try adding it on top of Coppering, so you can get pink tones without just pink. The red and brown tones from Coppering help make pink more wearable.

How do you like to wear Coppering eyeshadow?

The Best Mascaras for Colored Lashes

Benefit BADgal Plum ($19.00) will help warm up eyes! You can see me using it here. I definitely prefer plum over brown for more natural-looking lashes, too! BADgal is a reliable mascara formula that gives some length, average thickening, but it doesn’t clump up easily (which is always a huge plus in my book).

Urban Decay Big Fatty ($17.00) is available in several different shades–from Electric Blue to Purple Haze. Use colored mascaras to help bring out different colors in your eyes. Big Fatty has a larger-sized brush, so for those of you who aren’t used to it, you may find it a little difficult to adjust to at first. However, I’ve found UD’s colored mascaras to work better than the average one, so it’s worth trying out.

Laura Gellar Line & Define ($20.00) is more than a mascara, actually, with one side meant to line and the other side is a mascara wand. There are five shades available, with New Navy being my personal top pick as it really makes your eyes appear whiter.

Givenchy Eye Fly Lash Extender ($24.00) comes in a gorgeous indigo blue called Fly in Blue, as well as a fun violet shade called Fly in Violet. It’s a little on the pricey side, but it gets the job done well. I particularly like the lengthening it gives me.

YSL Everlong ($26.50) comes in lots of fun colors, and the brush is really spectacular. There are just so many bristles on this baby that it really helps coat every lash.

To learn more about or purchase these mascaras, check out Drugstore.com, Nordstrom.com, Prescriptives, and Sephora.com.
