How to apply copper smokey eye makeup
1. Moisturize your entire face, in order to hydrate your face and its also an additional feel good factor. Apply extra moisturizer on and under your lids. You can now use your concealer / foundation in the eye area as a primer. This will really remove the creases from your eyes and clean it and prepare the area for makeup. Research has it that a good primer makes the makeup lasts longer. We couldn’t ask for more. Use some rose powder, this is preferred over foundation and concealer since it has a soothing effect on the eyes.
2. Cover the entire lid with copper eye shadow, this step is still the part of preparing the base for the Copper Smokey eye. This is why, you need to apply this is lesser quantities. Do not make it very dark since it will steal the real texture of the copper color away.
3. Use a pinch of grey or Black eyeshadow on around the corners of your eye and start applying them towards the eye, use small quantities. Smudge as you go since blending is the Key to get the perfect copper Smokey eyes. Use a sponge end t smudge. You could also use a cotton bud.
4. You could even use a cheek bone brush, which is a fluffier brush to blend, brush along the eye, use some loose powder and brush on your eye. Brush using a to and fro movement.
5. Use some gold colored eye shadow and apply it on your brow bone, which is the highest point of arch on your eye brow. Use some on the corners of your eye too. Blend this along the rest of the makeup.
6. Do not forget to clean up as you go. You don’t want blotches of colors on your nose and cheeks. If the makeup becomes darker it’s just as much difficult to clean up.
7. Use dark powdered eyeliner and draw a line all the way on the upper lid and about three fourths of the lower lid. You could try blending this too. This is why it is recommended to use an eye pencil than a liquid liner; since it gets difficult to blend it.
8. You round strokes to blend they always work wonder. You could do this with your finger.
9. You need to apply another round of a darker copper eyeshadow and blend it to the liner as you go. This time around use a darker shade as it will accentuate the rest of the makeup well.
10. As a finishing touch you need to use an eyelash curler. And curl your eyelashes with them.
11. You need to finish it off by using at least 2-3 coats of mascara. This will certainly help in adding volume to your eyes.
