Warm/ Copper Eyes

Red and copper warm tones are tones I’ve always loved and gravitated towards particularly in hair and lip colours but I’ve been experimenting a little more with eyeshadow in these tones recently.

I used to always be a winged liner girl day in, day out but I’m definitely starting to prefer how eyeshadow opens up my eyes.

I recently purchased the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance eyeshadow palette (sold out online but I think the Chadstone store still has some) and I’m pretty in love with it. Below are two looks I’ve worn using mainly this palette.

Matte 

I love a bold matte eye for day time and this palette is so perfect for matte looks. The formula of these eyeshadows is so pigmented and buttery making them super easy to apply. I am uncoordinated and impatient but this palette is pretty foolproof despite the bold shades.

The main shades I used were Red Ochre, Antique Bronze and Realgar.

Metallic 

I was bored and have felt pretty hungover all day so I thought what better way is there to make yourself feel better than getting a bit of sparkle happening. I stuck to a lot of the more orange based colours and finished off the look with some metallic MAC pigments to really up to shimmer factor for a more night time look. Or whatever part of the day time, really. Who am I to tell you when to wear it?

The colours I used included Golden Ochre, Raw Sienna, Burnt Orange and Realgar topped with MAC pigments in Tan and Copper for the inner corner highlight.

For this look I also used one of the shimmery shades as my highlight and I’m pretty pleased with myself for it because look at that highlight! I used the shade Vermeer lightly dusted on the top of my cheek bones.

This is definitely a must buy palette, particularly going into winter. It’s definitely worth the hype and I’m pretty keen to see what other looks I can make with this. Let mw know what you think about the palette and if you have any suggestions on looks to create with it.
