Gold & Bronze Sultry Smokey Eyes

Hello Lovelies, I havent done a tutorial in a while and the sun was out today after I was finished work so I decided to do a sexy smokey, almost runway-like makeup look for you. I hope you enjoy it x
I applied UDPP all over the lid

I did strong brows using Urban Decay Buck and a Stila dark matte brown.

I applied Benefit Creaseless Eye Cream Shadow in Birthday Suit right in the middle part of my lid as well as all through the browbone. I avoided the inner and outer corners.

The Birthday Suit colour wasnt as bright as I wanted the lid colour to be so I put Urban Decay Half-Baked on top, but left the browbone area alone.

I placed the Urban Decay colours Darkhorse and Hustle in the outer and inner corners and sharply through the crease. Using a blending brush I blended them out roughly, I didnt want this look to be perfect, more of an "accidentally sexy" eye.

I took the dark colours messily underneath the eye, liner my lower and upper waterline with Avon Supershock Gel liner and added Collection 2000 Big Fake Lash Mascara. In the inner corner I added a tiny bit of Toasted from Urban Decay.

Face: Bourjoix Healthy Mix Foundation #52
GOSH Liquid Highlighter on cheekbones, centre of nose, cupid's bow.
GOSH Bronzer in 02 Natural Glow to contour.
Nothing on lips.

I dont know how wearable this look is, but it was fun to do and its something different. If I was wearing ths out, I would probably use a matte colour for the dark colour to contrast with the bright gold even more.
