FOTD: Glorious Copper

Here's a makeup look that's pretty easy to do, doesn't involve blending two hundred shades of eyeshadow, and that looks rather nice on greenish eyes.  Copper is a great juxtaposition to green, and even though my eyes veer more towards hazel than towards a pure green, the copper shadows used really bring out the green.

Here's the look within the context of my whole face (and wet hair).  It's interesting: photographing makeup like this helps you to realise how your makeup looks outside of the mirror; I'm always very careful with blush as I don't want to overdo it.  In reality, you can barely see the peachy blush I'm wearing here... so tomorrow, I'll be slapping on a bit more.

  1. This is such a beautiful look :) It really suits your complexion.

  2. The eyeshadow really brings the colour of your eyes out.

    I know what you mean about makeup outside the mirror. When I apply my blusher in my bedroom and look in the mirror, I can't even see it. When I check it in the bathroom though, it's clear I've got a little too much on. I shudder to think of the times I've been to work without checking in the bathroom mirror.

  3. This is such a nice eye look. It really does bring out the green and I can see that most obviously on the full face picture. Lovely!

  4. Wow this looks gorgeous on you! The copper really does bring out the green in your eyes and the eyeliner makes them look really intense. I love the blush on you too, you just look very healthy :)

  5. That is a wonderful color on you

  6. I actually love this even more with your hair colour than your eye colour :)
