Copper Eyeshadow Look - Featuring Copper Mineral Eyeshadow
October 09, 20194 min read
A cozy copper mineral eyeshadow look that is oh-so-perfect for Fall!
The perfect shade to wear as an everyday neutral, or a glam looks for the holiday season. The gorgeous warm tones in this shimmery, sweet look feature: Copper, Golden Glam, Sable,Velvet and Glitz Mineral Eyeshadows. (Links Below)
We paired one of our new Mineral Rich Lipsticks in Jazzed (a warm, glowing peach) with the eyeshadow look to complete this Autumn-inspired ensemble.
To help you see the eyeshadows more clearly, I left the eyeliner and mascara off of one of my eyes for these photos. You could wear it with or without eyeliner depending on your personal preference, but I would definitely recommend adding the mascara in at the end to both eyes to complete the look.
BASE - Sable: To begin, lay a soft base of Sable Matte Mineral Eyeshadow all over your lid, into your crease, and continue to blend out achieving a super soft gradient finish on all the edges with your Mini Fluff Brush.
BRUSH - A wash of color: This is my favorite brush for blending a single eyeshadow when I am not trying to be particularly precise, and mainly just want a super soft, perfectly blended finish.
BLEND - Velvet: Go in with a tiny bit of Velvet Mineral Eyeshadow and blend it into the base you just created with Sable, not going all the way to the edges but just adding in a little touch of warmth and color to your overall base.
DEFINE - Copper: Switching brushes, load up your Eyeshading brush with Copper Mineral Shadow and pack it into the outer third of your lid, even going a little bit further in towards the center but mainly focusing on the outer area (the photos shows this well!).
CENTER of lid - Golden Glam: Switching again to a clean Eyeshading Brush, load it up with the next color, Golden Glam, and focus it on the center of your lid.
BLEND - At this point, use your clean Fluffy Eye Shading Brush to ever so lightly blend the line between the Copper and Golden glam, not mixing the colors together, but simply softening the line. Repeat this on the other side of the Golden Glam as well, lightly softening the line between the warm brown base on the inner portion of your lid and the bright gold in the center. At this point you can touch up the Golden Glam or the Copper if you want to add more after blending to intensify the color, it just depends how much you blended them out and the amount of definition between colors you want to see.
LOWER lash line - Now use the smaller side of the Double Sided Angled Eyeshadow Brush to smudge a little Copper Mineral Eyeshadow along your lower lash line.
HIGHLIGHTER - Glitz: Follow this step by using your (clean!) Fluffy Eyeshading Brush to apply a little Glitz to your brow bone and to the inner corners of your eyes as a subtle highlight to tie the look together.
Complete Your Look
EYELINER - At this point, if you want to add in eyeliner, I would suggest using the wet application method with our Soft Black Mineral Liner and Fine Angle Brush to get a clean, well defined line over the rest of the shadows. If you choose to apply it dry it will create a smudgy look, and because there is so much shadow it will not be as intense at first (you would want to play around with adding a few layers perhaps to try and build it up). I found the wet application method to work quite well however, even over so many layers of eyeshadow!
And, of course, for the finishing touch? You can't go wrong with a beautiful, vibrant, and buttery smooth mineral lipstick. So naturally we paired this look with one of our warm, shimmery, Fall favorites, Jazzed Mineral Lipstick. And there you have its the completed look!

Lisa's Notes: Oh, I do adore this Copper Eyeshadow. I love it as a glam look and an everyday look. I also love it as a blush! A lip color!
