Copper Eyeliners
Copper Eyeliners: Chanel Peche Cuivre, Giorgio Armani #05, UD Baked, UD Lucky, MUFE #10L

Copper Eyeliners: Your Guide

I feel like I should have more coppery eyeliners, but there were only five that I really felt fit here!

  1. Chanel Peche Cuivre is a warm peach with a subtle sheen. (LE)
  2. Giorgio Armani #05 is a lightened copper with a soft, metallic sheen. (LE)
  3. Urban Decay Baked is a warm copper brown. It is not quite as warm-toned as Make Up For Ever #10L. (DC)
  4. Urban Decay Lucky is a rich copper with strong red and orange undertones.
  5. Make Up For Ever #10L is a warm copper brown. It is a touch warmer than Urban Decay Baked.

TEMPTALIA PICKS:  #4 (pigmentation, longevity), #5 (pigmentation, longevity)

Behind-the-Series:  It was my intention to provide heavy, opaque swatches to provide an accurate color comparison.  Some eyeliners required one pass, some required five, and a few even more.  When possible, the shade name (above) is linked to the original review so you can read more about the quality, wear, etc. of a particular eyeliner.  If we’ve never done a review, there will be no link.  Shades that were limited edition will be marked with “(LE)” and shades that were discontinued will be marked with “(DC)” after the color description.  You can also find all comparisons on The Dupe List.

Look:  Warm Green & Brown

This was the second look I tried to test drive MAC’s new long-wearing eyeshadows! :)  I don’t know if I’ve paired green (without being brownish or olive) with browns – it’s a very earthy combo!  Hope you’re having a fabulous day!

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by laying down your eyeshadow primer all over the lid and until the brow.  Apply Fresh Flare eyeshadow on the lower two-thirds of the lid with the 239.  In the crease, gently brush Keep Your Cool eyeshadow with the 222 and diffuse above the crease.  Apply Lie Low eyeshadow in the crease to add warmth with the 239.  Use Lucky eyeliner on the lower lash lin, then soften with Lie Low eyeshadow.  Finish lashes with Film Noir mascara.

For face, apply Matchmaster all over face with the 193.  Add color to the cheeks by gently dusting Natural blush near apples and blended out towards temples with the 116.  Lightly dust on illuminator with the 165 or 188 on cheek bones.  Set with Les Violettes with the 134.

For lips, apply To the Future onto lips and then layer over Show Me.

Copper & Bronze Look

You could also add more color to this combo by adding a burgundy or berry eyeshadow (like MAC Cranberry) into the crease or on the outer third of the lid.  I loved the lip combo the best from this look!

P.S. – Happy 500,000 comments! :)

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. Using the 239, apply Paparazz-she eyeshadow on the lower lid. Lightly blend Spectacle of Yourself eyeshadow onto the outer corner and crease with the 222. Apply Tweet Me eyeshadow on the inner tear duct and crease with the 239.  Blend Trench eyeshadow with the crease shade and highlight the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying Lucky on the lower lash line and pat Tweet Me eyeshadow on lower lower lash line. Finish by sweeping lashes with Inimitable Intense mascara.

For cheeks, apply Bella Bamba blush on the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116.

For lips, apply Garance lipstick first, then layer Apricot Cloche lipgloss for a complementing lip.
