Everyone knows the color wheel, yeah? Okay so green and red are contrasting colors obviously and since I have green/blue eyes I decided to try out a copper/reddish eye shadow a while back to bring out my eyes. In magazines I always read to stay away from red eye shadows because it makes your eyes look “irritated” but turns out mags are full of it sometimes! I got this color called ‘coppering’ from mac and it has been my favorite eyeshadow since I got it a couple years ago.  I never wear it just plain (unless I hardly use any just to add a tiny bit of color to my lid), I dont think its meant to be worn by itself, but I will put a brown on my eyes and then blend the copper on top. I like to use weird combos for fun so I actually use it with purples too (since purple also brings out green eyes) and I love that also! It mixes great with pretty much any color eyeshadow (if blended well). 
And if you’re wondering if it will look good on you because you don’t have green eyes, it will. I have also tried it on my sister (blue eyes) and cousin (brown eyes) and I love it on them too. I feel like it brings out the honey colors in brown eyes and blue eyed beauties are lucky because practically any color brings out blue.
Anyways here are some wayy cheesy pictures of me wearing the copper shadow:

 have you ever taken a picture of yourself while closing your eyes? its super weird.
but the shadow looks better in person.. this pic is not the best
That is what it looks like! I have had it for seriously over two years and that is how much I still have left! You hardly need any on your brush because it is super pigmented! 
And yes.. my make up drawer is completely unorganized. That will soon be changed!

  1. As in the case of blue eyes, the color of green eyes does not result simply from the pigmentation of the iris. Rather, its appearance is caused by the combination of an amber or light brown pigmentation of the stroma, given by a low or moderate concentration of melanin, with the blue tone imparted by the Rayleigh scattering of the reflected light.^,
