It’s no secret that some of the most influential beauty trends have gotten their start on social media. Take for instance overlined lips à la Kylie Jenner’s Instagram selfies or the halo eye makeup trend that took Pinterest by storm. And while these trends are still pertinent, it’s only natural that a new one comes along to shake up our routine. The latest social media sensation to do just that? Copper eye shadow.

If you’ve scrolled through Instagram, you’ve likely seen beauty bloggers sporting copper-colored lids in preparation for summer, which when you think about it, is the perfect hue come the sunny season—nothing pairs better with a bronze glow than a metallic shadow, right? So, we've compiled seven copper eye shadow images on Pinterest to inspire your warm-weather beauty routine.

Put a twist on the halo eye makeup trend, and add a dash of metallic copper into the mix via Nyx Hot Single Eyeshadow ($5) in Showgirl.

Dab Jillian Dempsey Lid Tint ($28) in Bronze on your lids for a hint of color and a lot of shine.

For a soft, smoky copper eye like the one above, blend Mehron Metallic Powder ($10) in Copper along your lid and up into your crease.

For major pigment with a high-shine finish, try MAC Pigment ($22) in Copper Sparkle.

Update a smoky eye with a wash of metallic shadow along the center of your lids.

For an everyday look befitting summer, apply a swipe of bronzer to both your cheeks and lids.

Apply a copper eyeliner like Nars Long-Wear Eyeliner ($24) in Via Appia to both your upper and lower lash line.
