Easy Summer Gold and Copper Eyes

Hello, This eye look is inspired by the colors of summer, think golden sand on the beach and beautiful sunset over the horizon.  The focus is using gold and copper to create an easy going look that is suitable for everyday or the beach.

I chose a combination of high end and drug store products that I have been loving for this look.

Cream Base - Benefit Creaseless Cream Eye Shadow in Honey Bunny (discontinued), a neutral flesh tone.  MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre is very similar in color and finish, it works just as well.  Before cream base, you can use a primer of your choice to help with creasing and longevity of the shadows applied later. I have been loving Nars Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base (not pictured)

Eye Shadows - 1) Lid  - Loreal 24HR Infallible Eye Shadow in 997 Eternal Sunshine, gold shimmer 
                              2) Crease and outer corner - Wet N Wild Eye Shadow in 255B Penny, copper shimmer 

Eye Liner - Guerlain Terracotta Khol Kajal in 01 Black Frida

Mascara - Loreal Voluminous Million Lashes in 620 Carbon Black

Concealer - Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Dark Circle Roller in Sheer Tint

Swatches of products from above picture in same order, but skipping the mascara

Which eye makeup products are you loving this summer?   Have a great summer!

Until next post......
