Bright Copper Eye Tutorial Using My Charlotte Ronson Palette in Nicole

The Look

I recently got a request to do a tutorial on the eye look I did in my Charlotte Ronson All Eye Need in Nicole Palette: A Review  post, so here it is...

The Products...

 Charlotte Ronson All Eye Need Palette in Nicole
Milani Eyeshadow Primer in #01 Nude
Mica Beauty Cosmetics Cream Liner in Black
Cover Girl Lash Blast Volume in Very Black

Creamy yellow shade, light bronze shade, bright copper shade, dark brown shade with fine gold sparkle

The Tools...

various brushes and my ELF Eyelash Curler
From left:

Sigma Large Fluff E50 brush-I use this brush to apply my brow bone shade, any fluffy brush will work
Sigma Eye Shading E55 brush- flat shadow brush used for packing color onto my lid
SOHO blending brush- small fluffy brush used for blending out any harsh line
ELF Professional Blending Eye Brush- small domed brush used for applying shadow to my crease
Sigma Eyeliner E05 brush- for applying my cream liner
Sigma Small Angle E65 brush- smudging liner/shadow into my lower lash line

The Tutorial...

I have already applied my foundation, powder, and Milani Eyeshadow Primer to my entire eyelid, up to my brow bone and on my lower lash line

Using a large fluffy brush, I applied the creamy yellow shade to my brow bone and the inner corner of my eye

I like to bring my brow bone shadow down into my crease, this will help me later with blending

Using a flat shader brush, I applied the light bronze shade to the inner half of my lid

Using the same flat shader brush, I tapped the bright copper shade on the outer half of my eyelid and up to my crease
Blend out any harsh lines using a small fluffy blending brush

Using a small domed crease brush, I applied the dark brown shade to my outer corner

I first press the shadow on my outer corner and then blend it out with light pressure "windshield wiper" motions from the outer corner to my inner corner
Pressing the shadow into the lid first keeps the most color intensity in the outer corner. "Windshield wiper" motions blends the dark brown into the crease and inner corner.  
Using the same fluffy brush as before, blend out any harsh lines

fully blended shadow look

I applied black winged liner to my upper lash line
 See my step by step eyeliner tutorial here
I used the remaining product on my brush and smudged it on my lower lash line
Using a small angle brush, I smudged out my liner with the dark brown shadow on the outer half of my lower lash line and the light bronze shade on the inner half of my lower lash line
finished shadow and liner look
I curled my lashes and applied two coats of mascara to my upper lashes and one coat to my lower lashes
