Eye'd Try It Look™: Phoenix Desert

Prep and FinishUrban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion,  L.A. Girl Mark My Eyes Eyeliner, L'Oreal Hip Color Truth Cream Eyeliner (905) (Black), Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil (Zero), Maybelline Natural Accents (Phantom Grey), Revlon Beyond Natural Defining Mascara (Black)
BrushesModern Basic Chisel Pointed Fluff (#808), Sephora Professionel Smudge Brush (#14), Smashbox Eye Liner Brush (#28) 
ShadowsMicaBella Shimmer Powder Carnival (#9), NYX Ultra Pearl Mania Orange Pearl (LP18), OCC Authentic
How I did it:

Applied the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Potion on the entire lid. Using the Modern Basic brush, I applied OCC Authentic to the lower lid working my way upward (Area #3). Still using the Modern Basic Brush I applied the NYX Ultra Pearl Orange Pearl directly above the OCC Authenic (clay color) (Area #2). Next I applied the MicaBella Shimmer Powder Carnival (same brush) above the NYX (Area #1) sweeping across the entire brow bone area.
NoteWhen using the same brush, be sure to tap off the excess color before applying the next color.
Still using the Modern Basic brush I applied all the colors again for a touch more color. Using a chisel brush helps apply color moderately without going too heavy which is perfect for this look because you want it to look natural and soft. It also helps to precisely place color. I then applied the Urban Decay Liner (White line) and the Revlon mascara.

On the lower lid I applied the L.A. Girl Liner at the water line and using the Smashbox Eye Liner Brush I applied the L'Oreal Hip Creme Eyeliner. To soften the line, using the Sephora Professionel Smudge Brush I applied the Maybelline Natural Accents Eyeshadow then applied Revlon mascara.

The great thing about these colors I chose, I didn't really have to blend very much because they fall in the same color family AND they all have lots of shimmer!
