Face of the Day | Copper Lover

While bronze and gold seem to be the popular shades for summer, moi leans more on copper for that punch o’ glow. It compliments my medium skin tone and it’s subtle enough to wear to work.

The challenge to wearing copper eye makeup is finding a blush-on that harmonizes but not really matchy-matchy. Huh? say that again madam. What I mean is, there is balance in simplicity.

Pinks don’t flatter and copper-orange is a tad overboard for daytime wear. Good thing I have this peachy- bronze blush from Laura Mercier (Sunsoaked Bronze). I finished the look with a sheen lippy from Sonia Kashuk (Sheer Bronzey Nude).

Get the eye look: For reference, I used my old MAC Mineralize eye shadow (Mix & Switch). Sweep shimmery champagne on lids and brow bone. Apply copper eyeshadow on crease and blend. Line upper lash line with shimmer dark brown (Laura Geller Eye Rimz Baked Shadow in Bewitching Bronze). Amp this to night time ~> Wear false lashes and wing out your eyes.

What’s your favorite look this summer?
