You’re five steps away from owning the night with this alluring smoky eye, courtesy of the Urban Decay Smoked Palette.

  1. SWEEP a mushroom shadow over lids, blending from lash lines up toward the creases. Build color for richer coverage.
  2. LAYER on a shimmering amethyst shade, working from the outer to the inner corners, then wrap color along the lower lash lines.
  3. LINE top and bottom lids—including the inner rims—using black liner to add density. Avoid harsh lines by blending the pencil and shadow together.
  4. ADD warmth and dimension by sweeping a matte peach shadow above the creases, then wrapping the color along the lower lash lines.
  5. FINISH the look with two coats of mascara on top and bottom lashes.
