Copper Autumn Makeup Tutorial

October 12, 2017

Hey everyone! Today I thought I’d give you a tutorial on this autumnal, copper makeup look that I have been obsessed with lately. This warm, metallic look is simple to do and looks beautiful on all eye colours, but will really make blue/green eyes pop. I really love this look and think it’s perfect for autumn!

  • As always I prime my face with the Guerlain L’or Primer and then apply my Kat Von D Lock It Foundation.
  • Then I conceal under my eyes with the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer to brighten the eye area and cover up any redness and scarring.
  • I then powder my face using the RCMA No Colour Powder.
  • For eyebrows I use the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in the colour Blonde and a Spectrum A14 brush.
Contour, Blush, Highlight:
  • To contour I always use my Kat Von D Shade and Light palette and today I’ll be using the darkest shade to get a really defined, sharp contour.
  • For blush I’m using Bobbi Brown Blush in rose, which is a really beautiful, subtle pink colour.
  • I highlight using the Sleek Solstice Palette and apply this to the top of my cheekbones, tip of my nose and cupids bow.
The Eyes:
  • If you’ve read my other makeup tutorials you should know that I always prime my eyes using the Urban Decay Original Primer Potion, so that it lasts all day and doesn’t crease.
  • For this look I use the Marc Jacobs Starlet palette, one of my favourites in my collection. With a fluffy Spectrum brush I take the dark brown shade and apply it to the outer corner of my eye, blending it up and taking it into the crease a little.
  • Then with a flat brush I take the copper shade, making sure there’s lots of pigment on my brush, and pat that all over my lid. This colour is absolutely stunning, each time I apply it I have to take a moment to marvel at it’s beauty.
  • Using a Spectrum A12 brush I use the second shade to highlight the inner corners. This colour is blinding and my favourite to use for inner corner highlighting.
  • I then use both the copper and the brown and apply these to my lower lashline.
  • For eyeliner I use Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper and attempt a wing, not my strong point haha.
  • Then to finish off I apply two coats of The Bodyshop Super Volume Mascara to my top and bottom lashes.

  • Lastly for lipstick I use the Milani Metallic Matte Liquid Lipstick in the colour Matterialistic. Matterialistic is a really pretty metallic copper and finishes off this warm toned, autumn look perfectly.
