Urban Decay Smoked Tutorial!

 It's HERE!!! The NEW Urban Decay Smoked Palette! I got so excited, I had to do a quick "tutorial" for you guys. I took this really quick on my camera phone just to show you guys a quick look.
Step 1: Take Perversion eye pencil (included in kit) and draw a smudgy line across top & bottom lash line.  I used an UD brush designed to smudge the 24/7 pencils (not included), to smudge it all over eyelid, focusing on outer corner. This created the base for the look.  Step 2: Take the color Mushroom and focus it on the inner half of the eyelid.
 Step 3: Layer Asphalt on the center of the lid (NEW COLOR), then put Blackout in the "outer V" and blend into the crease.  Blend the rest of the shades lightly together using a fluffy brush.  Step 4: Apply Kinky to the brow bone as a highlight & a little Freestyle between the crease & brow bone to warm it up.  Step 5: Line waterline and tight line using included Perversion eye pencil. Smudge a little on top & bottom lash line as well if desired.
 Step 6: Apply Urban Decay's SuperCurl Mascara (no lash curler here!) to curl, lengthen and define lashes(not included). And here it is the finished look! Yes I was running around my house with only 1 eye done, but it was super fun to try this out. I recommend this palette. Such a good value. It comes with a mini primer potion too!

Shortly after I posted this Urban Decay posted a contest for a smokey eye look. I did not win, but here is the look I submitted. I basically followed the same steps above, but added some Rockstar to the lid for a more modern look. Here are the pics:
