Beauty Basics: Copper Showstopper

Copper is my secret weapon for fall. Gold and silver can be overdone, but copper? It's bold and vibrant and just as eye-catching. It's reminiscent of summer with it's shimmery glow but this warmth is muted in the best way. Like in a "roasting marshmallows in front of a roaring, crackling camp fire" kinda way. Copper is all things fall with a dash of glam and the perfect pick-me up to any makeup look. Loving cuddle season but missing the perks of a radiant tan? The Body Shop's Honey Bronze Brilliance in 'Copper' ($22) and Iman's Blush in 'Sunlit Copper' ($11) will give you a flush of color in dreary November. Dazzle your eyes with must-have metallics like Stila's Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow in 'Copper Sheen' ($32) and Jane Iredale's Eye Shadow Palette in 'Daytime' ($55) to get that fiery glimmer. Dare to be different with a bold lip in an unexpected shade like YSL's Tint-in-Oil in 'Drive Me Copper' ($32), Estée Lauder's Pure Color Lipstick in 'Copper Flash' ($26) or OCC's Lip Tar in 'Authentic' ($9). For those who want the color but want to keep it simple, Butter London's 'Trifle' ($15) is your new luminescent love! Cop that copper tone and create your own spark! Click any product to shop!

After finding a complementary shade to perfect your pout with, you want your lips to be smudge-proof, food-proof and kiss-proof for long-lasting wear.

I want my smile to look on point all day especially when I can't be bothered to reapply! My fix? Liquid lipsticks! So many makeup brands are hopping on this trend and I couldn't be happier.
