Shimmery Copper Bronze Eyes of the Day

I love shimmery eye makeup.  (And the rest of the face, really, but lets stick to the eyes today.)

I used Mally Evercolor Shadow Stick in Topaz, a rich, shimmery, reddish coppery brown, as a base for this look on the lids and lower lashline.

Topaz is incredibly creamy, but "dries" quite quickly, so super fast blending is required in order to soften any edges.

I used the incredibly shimmery LORAC TANtalizer Baked Bronzer all over the lid, into the crease, and the lower lashline.  I actually prefer using this bronzer as an eyeshadow, and not so much as a bronzer on the face because it is SO shimmery.  I used theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer, a beautiful shimmery gold highlighter, under the brows and in the inner corner.

To darken the crease, I did use a matte shade.  It ended up looking not matte and pretty shimmery because it was blended into the shimmery bronzer shade.  I chose to use Sable, a matte warm chocolate brown, from the LORAC PRO Palette as the darker crease color.

For liner on my lower waterline, I used Tarina Tarantino Hyperliner in Tommy Jet, a black eyeliner.  Maybelline Full 'N Soft was the mascara I used.

I think this shot shows just how shimmery the Mary-Lou Manizer is as a highlight under the brow.

I tried to include the word "shimmery" as many times as I could in this post.  I'm not sure I used it enough, so... shimmery shimmery shimmery shimmery.  There you go.

Have a wonderful day, friends!!


  1. How beautiful! I've heard great things about those Mally shadow sticks!

  2. The shadow stick applied so wonderfully, and it really is "bulletproof" as she calls it.

  3. The copper color is gorgeous! It looks so pretty with your blue eyes.

  4. How pretty! I don't own any Mally products, but I'm loving the shade and shimmer of this :)

  5. Thanks Tanya! Copper still feels like a summery color, but transitions well into fall, I think.

  6. The only other Mally product I have tried is her Poreless Face Defender, which is great. I really wanted to try some of her "bulletproof" makeup colors, and I love eyeshadow crayons, so this seemed perfect. I should try to write a review. I'm really impressed by it.

    Quite shimmery if I do say so myself. You look great! I actually have a set of those Mally eyeshadow sticks but have never used them. I'm gonna have to pull them out to the front and try those out soon!

  8. Ohh they are so good. You should totally pull them out!!

  9. Beautiful! I don't have all of these products but you've inspired me to wear a bronzed eye this week! :-)
