Orange and Copper Halo Eyeshadow Tutorial
This is one of my favorite color combinations to wear and also one of my favorite styles. Orange eyeshadows look great on blue eyes since orange is the complementary color to blue. This orange and copper halo eyeshadow tutorial will flatter blue eyes the most but will look nice on other eye colors, as well. (Check out my Champagne and Purple Halo Eyeshadow Tutorial if you want something perfect for green eyes or you just don’t do orange.)

Start out by priming your eyes. I am using Mac Painterly Paint Pot today.
Add a base shadow which will help us blend out shadows later on. Choose an eyeshadow that is close to your skin tone and matte. I am using Mac Blanc Type (matte, off white) on a Sigma Large Fluff.
Now add a transition eyeshadow. This will give a nice transition between your skin and the colored shadows. I am using Mac Wedge (matte, neutral light brown) on a Hakuhodo J5522 and applying it from the crease, blending towards the brow and along the lower lash line.
Take Mac Red Brick (matte, red-copper) and start applying it to the outer quarter of the eyelid. I use a Hakuhodo J142 to apply and I apply it as a slight v shape.
Now we’re going to repeat that color on the inner corner and also taking it along the outer quarters of the lower lash line. I use a Sigma E30 Pencil Brush to apply.
With the same pencil brush add a touch of Mac Brown Script (matte, burnt orange) to the very outer v.
Add some Makeup Geek Shimma Shimma to the center of the upper and lower lid. I use a Mac 242 to apply.
Add some of MAC Coppering (shimmer, red-copper) just on the edges of the Shimma Shimma on both lids. I use a pencil brush for this step.
I wanted to emphasize the halo effect even more so I used a brown liner on the outer and inner corners of the waterline and then a nude liner just in the center. I have also curled my lashes and added mascara.
Here’s the finish looked with some lashes. I am wearing Velour lashes in Whispie Sweet Nothings.
I hope you like this look. I think it’s very pretty, especially on blue eyes. If you want something less intense, go for more orange or gold coppers instead of the very red coppers I used today. Please let my know what other tutorials you’d like to see next in the comments below!
