Makeup Wars: Favorite Holiday Metallics

(*Please ignore the dumb purple streak in the pic. Silly replacement camera is being whackadoodle.)

For this edition of Makeup Wars we are discussing our Favorite Holiday Metallics. Well, I took a little bit of latitude with this one. I don’t have a specific “holiday” metallic, because to me I almost always think of glittery golds and silvers and that’s just not really me. However, I do have one metallic that is a regular, every season, staple for me – Copper. Specifically, Three Custom Color “Copper” eyeshadow.

Now, I normally wouldn’t pick this color, as I am much more of a jewel tone girl. But, my fab pal Meredith, from Retrodiva’s Beauty, and I spent the afternoon with Chad Hayduk, co-founder of Three Custom Color, discussing Color Science and Chad enlightened me on how to make my eyes pop by adding Copper into the middle of my eyelid. And, he was so right. Here, listen for yourself:

Anyway, ever since that day, when I need a little extra oomph to my eye look, I grab my 3CC “Copper” to my lids and pop away.

Have you figured out what your opposite, yet complementary, color to add to your eye to make it pop? Do you wear metallics only during the holiday’s or do you rock it all year round?

Don’t forget to find out what metallics the other gals are wearing this holiday season:

    Copper, yes! Copper is indeed a metallic. Why didn’t I think of that? I have so few copper shadows. What a shame. :(

    I love me some copper shadow. My eye color changes depending on what I wear so I would have to have a whole arsenal of shadows to “compliment” my eye color of the moment….oh wait. I already do. Thanks for the video.That was really helpful!

    I love that you choose to feature copper! Plus, I am a fan of color theory. It can really work for you! :)
