Confession time: I deal with a lot of closet ginger envy. Aren’t we supposed to make fun of them or something? (Kidddddding.) Whatever it is, I definitely didn’t get the memo, because I would trade in my dark hair and ghostly pallor for a splash of freckles and an auburn mane any day of the week — see: Amy Adams, who is basically a walking Renoir, and her glossy copper-red hue isn’t even natural. Speaking of copper, check out the gorgeous bronze shadow lining her lower lashes. It gives definition without the heaviness of a darker matte shade, which can really drag down the lower eye, and the warm metallic tones really make blue and green eyes pop. It looks like she also has a bit of a shimmery champagne color in the inner corner around her tear duct as a lighter complement to the rustier color.

I love this look, and it’s surprisingly easy to achieve as well. Apply the shadow sparingly to the lower rim with a small tapered liner brush (or better yet, try a shadow pencil like Make Up For Ever Aqua Shadow in 22E), sweep the same shade over the lid and up into the brow bone, then tap just a touch of gold highlight to the inner eye (Benefit’s cult fave Moon Beam is a better-than-safe bet for any complexion) to glow like Amy. And for the love of god, if you have the coloring to pull off ginger hair, do it. Redheads are so hot.
