Get a Sun-Kissed Look like Diane Kruger’s with the Latest Trend in Metallics!
Summer is fast approaching, and that means bronzed is beautiful! With that in mind, copper colored makeup is the latest makeup trend in metallics. Celebs like Diane Kruger are showing off this hue beautifully, and you can too!
Copper makeup is ideal in the summertime, since its warm tones look great on tanned skin. The metallic specks also catch the summer sunlight just right, causing you to literally shine! Copper is such a versatile color; you can wear it as eye shadow, nail polish, or highlighter. Here are some great picks for copper makeup products that will flatter any skin tone:
Copper Eye Shadows
As an eye shadow, copper brings out the subtle gold flecks in dark eye colors and makes lighter eye colors pop. Try a copper eye shadow like L’Oreal Wear Infinite Single Eye Shadow in Copper Penny and sweep it across your entire lid from the lash line to the crease, applying a good amount of pigment. Don’t go any higher than your crease line or you’ll run the risk of making your eyes look shimmery instead of sultry. For a night out, add a little liquid liner to your eyes to really give your eyes a sexy style.
Copper Nail Polish
Copper colors worn as nail polish are perfect for beginners. This way you can show off the trend without going overboard. Estee Lauder has a great nail lacquer called Copper Rose, which has a hint of pink mixed in with the copper. It will give your toenails, fingernails (or both) a beautiful sheen that can be shown off poolside or at the beach.
Copper Bronzers & Highlighters
Body bronzers and highlighters are another great way to display this latest color trend. Look for products like Urban Decay’s Baked Body Glow that has hints of copper and cinnamon, and comes in an easy and convenient stick style applicator. You can apply it on your décolletage, shoulder blades, or on your legs to highlight all the right spots.
For your face, try Sugar Cosmetics Travel Tan Face and Body Bronzer, which comes with an easy-to-use brush applicator. Sweep it on over your blush to highlight your cheekbones. This will show off the beautiful coppery tone as well as make you look like your cheeks got a bit of color.
Copper colors look great when showcased in the sun, because this is when they can truly sparkle. Before you head off to your next barbeque, pool party, or beach bash, swipe on a bit of copper colored makeup so you’ll be the shining star of the party!
