FOTD: Coppery Neutral Eye

Hey Everyone!
Hope you're all having a good week so far. I'm SO excited- I've reached more than 10,000 subscribers on my YouTube channel!! Thank you so much to everyone who subscribes and regularly watches my videos. I love making them! :D

I wanted to do a quick FOTD post.... well it's actually and EOTD (eye of the day). I did a toned-down version of a tutorial I saw Makeup Geek do recently- it was a Pamela Anderson Viva Glam look, and I actually had several of the same MAC products, so I thought I'd try to re-create it in a work-appropriate way. To check out her version- which is beautiful- just click the link:

Here's what I did...

-Applied Too Faced Shadow Insurance all over the lids
-Applied MAC Rubenesque Paint Pot all over lids (peachy gold shade)
-With eyeshadow brush, apply MAC shadow in Naked Lunch all over lids
-Apply a wash of Milani Flare (dupe of MAC Coppering) all over crease- extending upward, slightly on top of brow bone
-Deepen outer "V" with a small amount of sketch (dark brownish plum)
-Then highlight under the highest point of the arch with Naked Lunch

-F.Y.I...on my lips is L'oreal Colour Riche Lipstick in Eva's Caramel (Eva Longoria Signature lipstick), with Jordana lipgloss in Lovely on top.

Clockwise from left: MAC shadow in Naked Lunch, MAC shadow in Sketch, Milani shadow in Flare, MAC Paint Pot in Rubenesque.

Thanks for stopping by the blog, and have a great day!!

  1. Beautiful! I love the colour combo.

  2. Emily have a few questions that I hope you can help me with......

    1) I would love to know your ideas about make up for "older" women. I'm 40, so are there certain looks or types of make up that I should definately avoid. I just look at some of your looks/tutorials and think "oh so cute" and then I wonder if it's an "age appropriate" look for someone now 40ish......

    2) I also wonder how frequently you "purge" your make up. Do you just use it ALL up before you discard OR do you rotate your "stock" and purge on a rotation that way? Do you have/keep any products for a VERY long time? What is the oldest product you have and how long have you had it?

    3) Could you do some tutorials with your mom or some other model that's over 40 to show some looks for women in that age range. I don't want to give up the "fun" of make up, and I don't want to look like I'm trying to be a teen again.
