5 Rich Copper Eyeshadows

Not orange, not brown, but some kind of magical mix of the two with a little bronze thrown in. ¬†Copper is typically accompanied by a more frosted and/or metallic finish. ¬†It’s nearly always very, very warm in undertone, but if you need to cool down, try pairing it with a violet or blue.

  1. Make Up For Ever #12 — creamy, rich copper with a metallic finish
  2. NARS Isolde — two shades of coppery browns
  3. MAC Amber Lights — rich, metallic copper with a strong golden-copper shimmer
  4. Giorgio Armani #5 — darkened coppery brown with a metallic finish
  5. Inglot #405 — metallic copper

Make Up For Ever #12 Aqua Cream

Make Up For Ever #12 Aqua Cream ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “soft copper shimmer.” It’s a rich copper with a heavy metallic sheen. Being a copper. it has a reddish orange tone to it, so it tends to suit warmer complexions more than cooler ones. Though it’s a cream, it is similar in color to these powder eyeshadows: theBalm Meep Meep, Urban Decay Baked, MAC Amber Lights, and Giorgio Armani Gold Blitz.

I’m a big fan of Aqua Creams, because they really stay on well. The formula is all about bringing “rich color payoff” with long-lasting wear that does not crease or smudge. These have a creamy consistency that applies easily and smoothes out beautifully, but they do have a quicker dry down time–and once they set, they’re set for the rest of the day. I’ve worn numerous shades since they originally launched, and I’m never disappointed. The wear is truly phenomenal!

A
I love this on warmer complexions, especially deeper ones, as a quick wash or to enhance bronzes and golds. It has a very smooth texture that makes it a great base for powder eyeshadows as well.
