Trendy Thursdays: Dash of Copper Eyemakeup on the Red Carpet (Oscars 2012)

One of the hottest celebrity makeup looks on the Red Carpet this year was a dash of copper in their eye makeup. I was just sifting through websites that day trying to get inspirations for celebrity looks to do a tutorial on, and suddenly realized that most of the photos on bellasugar had hints of copper in it! So I decided to adapt it to create an everyday makeup look for spring and summer! I chose to do this look with a slightly tanned skin tone, but you could use this look on fair skin as well. I tried it on fair skin as well and I just might prefer it, but hey, I’m embracing the coming of summer haha. In my opinion, fair skin makes the colours pop more, making your eyes look slightly more dressed up while on a slightly tanned complexion, it looks more natural with that little pop of glitter.

Below I’ll be including pictures of the celebrities from bellasugar with their eye makeup as well as a tutorial on how to create this look =)
