Hair and Makeup Tutorial – Dramatic Copper Eyeshadow with Soft Curls!

Hi everyone! So today’s blog is something a little different to my usual posts, a makeup AND hair tutorial! The focus of this look is the dramatic eyes and the soft curls in the hair, so I’m not going to be doing a step by step on my foundation, blusher etc. If you do want to know what products I used for that then please comment below and I’d be happy to answer!

Eye Makeup 

To achieve this look I only used my Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette, so if you have this then get it ready! I have included a photo of the palette with the shade names in this post, so you can see what the shades look like in the pan and this will help you to look through your collection and find good alternatives. img_0925 img_0935

For this look I started with the shade Truth, which I used as a base and applied this all over my lid and into my crease. This just helps to make all the shades stand out if you are planning on using bright colours.

I then took the shade Undone and just applied this through my crease quite lightly and blending out thoroughly – This will be our transition shade to help with blending the Copper shade later on.

The shade Sonic was then applied all over the lid, and through the crease. I packed this colour on as much as possible as I wanted it to be very bold and dramatic. I made sure to blend it out very well as it’s such a bright shade. I also lined under my eye with this shade.

Once I had packed on the Copper, I took the shade Defy just on the outer V and through the crease very lightly. This just gave some depth to the Copper so that it wasn’t all one shade.

Lastly, I used Last Sin to highlight my Inner corner to brighten up my eyes.

To line my upper lash line I used the Rimmel Exaggerate Liquid Liner as this is my favourite at the moment. It doesn’t smudge and is SO easy to apply!

For Mascara I chose the Benefit Roller Lash. This is a great mascara if you are looking for length and volume but don’t want the clumpiness that comes with some mascaras.

To finish off the makeup look I went for Mac’s Creme Cup lipstick which is a light pink nude shade.




The hair was actually pretty quick and easy to do. I parted my hair into a centre parting and then took my GHDs and added a few loose curls around the sides and back of my head, making sure to curl away from my face. I also curled each side of my fringe so that it looked like part of the main body of the hair. I then brushed through my hair to make the curls softer.


Once my hair was curled, I took my go-to hair product right now, which is the Parlor By Jeff Chastain Moisturising Sea Salt Spray. I sprayed this all over my hair (Not going right into the roots) whilst lifting my hair up to get to the underneath sections too. I then started scrunching my hair with my fingers just to give it a bit of body. I did this a few times and the end result gives you a lovely soft natural curled look.

Here is the finished look!


I hope you guys like it! Let me know in the comments if you would like to see more hair and makeup tutorials like this!
