I recently posted an article on Urban Decay Thunderbird eyeshadow (you can read more, see photos and swatches of this product here) and wanted to share a look using this product. I used black eyeshadow, a shimmery light peachy-brown eyeshadow and a little black eye liner to add extra smokiness to the look.
Here’s how to re-create this look:

Base: Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Eden (matte beige)
Lid: Urban Decay Thunderbird eyeshadow (metallic coppery-bronze with black base)
Outer Lid/Crease: MAC Typographic eyeshadow (muted matte black)
Inner Corner: MAC All That Glitters eyeshadow (light shimmery peachy-brown)
Upper/Lower Lashline: Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil Eye Liner in Zero (black)
Highlight: MAC Brule eyeshadow (light matte beige)
Lower Lashline: Urban Decay Thunderbird eyeshadow (as above)
Black mascara (upper and lower lashes)
1. Apply Eden all over the lid as a base. You can either use your fingers or a flat synthetic brush (e.g. MAC 242).
2. Take a flat shader brush (e.g. MAC 239) and pat Thunderbird on to the lid.
3. Take a fluffy crease/blender brush (e.g. MAC 217) and pat Thunderbird on to the outer part of the lid in a slight ‘v’ shape. Take the colour slightly up into the crease to add extra dimension and shape to the eyes.
4. Take a flat shader brush (e.g. MAC 239) and pat All That Glitters on to the inner part of the lid.
5. Take a fluffy crease/blender brush (e.g. MAC 226) and sweep Brule on to the browbone to highlight.
6. Take Zero eyeliner (or any other black liner) and draw a thin line along the upper lashline. Take the same eyeliner and lightly draw a thin line along the lower lashline. This step adds a little extra definition to the eyes.
7. Take a pencil brush (e.g. MAC 219) and lightly sweep Thunderbird along the lower lashline to soften the liner.
8. Apply black mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
