To start off, I used Urban Decay’s Primer Potion in order for my shadows to stay pigmented and in place all day long. For an all over lid colour, I mixed “Buzz” from Urban Decay’s Naked 3 Palette with “Goldenleaf” from Pati Dubroff’s Spotlight Palette in order to create a beautiful golden colour with a bit of a rosy undertone.

In order to get rid of any harsh lines, I used “Mystic,” which is a matte taupe, as a transition colour. I applied this shadow on my crease in between my eye lid and brow bone.

To deepen up the look for a settle smokey effect, I used “Cognac” which is a beautiful brick brown colour and applied it on my outter corner. With a fluffly blending brush with no product, I carefully blended my life away until I was able to get rid of any harsh lines. From here, you can touch up any colour that has been rubbed off a bit from the blending for more pigmentation. After blending, I definitely went back to “Goldenleaf” and “Buzz” to do some touch up on the lids for a more vibrant effect since some of the pigmentation have been rubbed off from blending. As a highlight for my brow bone, I used “Cashmere” which is a matte cream in the Spotlight Palette. Lastly, I used “Cognac” for my bottom lash line (only from the middle to the outer) and then followed up with “Mystic” and applied it from the middle to the inner part of my lash line.

I then do my usual eye routine – winged liner and then follow up with a pair of falsies. In this case, I was going for a more settle, every day type of smokey eye so I decided to use a more natural pair of lashes just to add a bit of volume to my naturally thin and sparse lashes.

Here is how it looks when I’m looking down:
