Bronzed Copper Goddess Smokey Eye Makeup Tutorial

Ahh today I shall throw another simple smokey eye atcha’. A common misconception by people happens to be “copper is part of the bronze spectrum”, and it’s not! Copper is such a unique reddish gold that can be PAIRED with bronze, but simply is a different color. With that being said I believe it is the perfect Winter shadow color for a common smokey eye or just an everyday makeup look! Paired with this coppery bronzed look I also focused on glowy sun kissed skin for a “bronzed goddess” vibe. Especially in the winter months when the light is sucked out of you, literally and physically (I miss the sun going down at 7pm) it is important to maintain a healthy complexion! Wether you do this by regular skin care routines or simple strobing techniques, its a must do! This look is a slight bit more dressed up than my previous Everyday Makeup Tutorial, however for those a bit more daring its the perfect alternative. In my last video I actually made mention of my everyday smoked out liner look, this would be it with a Winter twist 🙂 The lips can be changed as aways, however i’d remain in the pale nude and pale pink spectrum. I already ventured off using a red/berry color and…. it tends too look harsh against the copper shades (aka vampire Lillee).

One of the best things you can do for your body, specifically face other than cleansing is sleep, which is exactly what I did. Literally if I had a picture of my skin from 6AM to 11AM, when I woke up, the difference is significant less redness, and just a clearer complexion. Upon my awakening I simply patted cold water on my skin then set it with Fresh Seaberry Oil! Oil’s are generally the better pick in the Winter months, but who would’t love that? Oil’s make your skin “glow from within” which makes it super ideal for this Bronze/Copper goddess look! I let the oil set for around 10 minutes time. Just before getting into the priming section- If you’re contemplating buying this oil, since I know its in high demand all of a sudden, just go for it. I happen to have super dry and sensitive skin which is two of the worst conditions to have, this has saved my skin from looking like a scaled monster and has improved it for the long run. Hands down the best oil and I’m glad I purchased it during the Summer months!

After your skin has absorbed either an oil or moisturizer of sorts, move along to the priming stage. Very similar to the application of your moisturizers, smooth this all over your skin starting from the center working out towards the hairline! I went for Clinique’s Superprimer because as many of you know I am preserving my N28. Needless to say, depending on the type of primer you use (if it contains oil/if it doesn’t) set an allotted time for it to sink into your pores! Always use a tiny amount also- I used to glob it on and it doesn’t benefit the foundation longevity at all it simply wastes product plus clogs pores.

My normal foundations run rather light in tone other than my Becca Full Coverage Creme, so I decided to use Hourglasses Veil Fluid Foundation. It might seem rather odd to coordinate your foundation with a look as many people have a staple one, but my skin changes with the times (all the time LOL) which leaves me to use a different formula a day. With only a pump on the back of my hand and a Marc Jacobs Face II Sculpting brush, I gently brushed the formula out towards my hairline starting from the center of my face. Generally I like to pat the foundation under my left eye and then drag downwards as I move towards my lower jaw area. The only time I use stippling motions is when I have a super bad breakout but in todays case all of that will be covered with cream contouring! If you happen to not be a fan of cream contouring (its amazing so screw you), just work in light layers on the foundation to create a depth driven color :)!
