Bronze Makeup Look ft Urban Decay 'Preen' Eyeshadow Palette

*please excuse the awful quality photos, I did not have my camera so I had to use the iPod Touch camera. Also please excuse my eyebrows, I badly need to get them done haha.

My Urban Decay Preen palette is one of my favourite palettes I own. I rarely use single shadows. To be honest I don't really use the blue (Painkiller), green (Mildew) or purple (Flash) shadows. I only use the three neutral colours 'Snatch' (1) 'Toasted' (2) and 'Smog' (3). (Ill probably do a review on the palette as a whole incl. the 3 other colours, the primer and the liner.)

So first of all, I ALWAYS prime my eyes using the Urban Decay primer potion. This is the best primer I've ever used and I'll probably never use another primer. I'll do a whole separate review on it because there is so much I could say about it.
After priming I apply 'Snatch' all over my lid using a flat eyeshadow brush.

Then, using a small brush I apply 'Toasted' to the crease of my eye and blend it out using a larger blending brush.

Now you can leave it like this if you like, or if you really want to make it dark and smokey, take the small brush again, and pat 'Smog' right into the outer corner and blend it out using the blending brush.

Using a taper brush, apply 'Snatch' to the inner third of your lower lash liner, 'Toasted' to the middle third and 'Smog' to the outer third, blending them together.
Finish up by lining your eyes, I used a brown Gosh pencil liner but you can use whatever liner you like and loading on the mascara. I used the Smashbox Full Exposure mascara for length and then put the Rimmel Scandaleyes mascara over it for thickness.
