Urban Decay Smoked Look Book 1 Iconic & 2 Iconic With Colour

When I showed you guys the Smoked Palette, I promised to recreate all 12 looks based on the look book provided. I did the first 2 looks and find that there are lots of layering in the instructions. I followed the steps exactly, and for your convenience, I also included the instructions for you. I find that, with eyes this strong, it’s best to keep cheeks and lips nude. I think it’ll also look better with falsies so the lashes won’t disappear into the darkness – unless of course, you have thick heavy lashes yourself 🙂

This is the first look, Iconic.

  1. Apply Freestyle from crease to brow
  2. Highlight brow bone with Kinky, tracing it just along brow arch. Blend with Freestyle
  3. Using Perversion Pencil, line upper and lower lash line, about halfway across, from the outer corner toward the inner. Smudge
  4. Sweep Mushroom all the way across lower lash line blending it into the pencil. The shadow should be thick and smudgy; make sure the edges look soft and fuzzy
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for lower lash line
  6. Apply Mushroom across upper lid and into the crease, blending up and out of the crease
  7. Add intensity, “Push” Backdoor shadow into the Mushroom shadow along lower lashes, keeping the brush slightly tighter to the lash line. Go about halfway from outer to inner corner
  8. Layer Backdoor on upper lid about 1/3 of the way from outer to inner corner. Join with the lower lash line eye shadow at the outer corner and flare out slightly.
  9. Work Backdoor shadow into the crease and blend upward. It should blend seamlessly into the Mushroom
  10. Trace Blackout along upper and lower lash lines, extending out slightly at the outer corner. Smudge into Backdoor
  11. Reline outer 1/3 of eye with Perversion Pencil. With a brush, fuse it into the shadow along the lash line. Seamlessly blend pencil with shadow
  12. Line the lower waterline all the way across with Perversion pencil
  13. Line the upper waterline all the way across and into the inner corner with Perversion. Make sure the upper and lower lines meet
  14. Apply a touch of Mushroom at the inner corners of eyes

And this is the second look, Iconic With Colour

  1. Apply Freestyle from crease to brow
  2. Highlight brow bone with Kinky, tracing it just along brow arch. Blend with Freestyle
  3. Using Perversion Pencil, line upper and lower lash line, about halfway across, from the outer corner toward the inner. Smudge
  4. Sweep Loaded all the way across lower lash line blending it into the pencil. The shadow should be thick and smudgy. Make sure the edges look soft and fuzzy.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for lower lash line
  6. Apply Loaded across upper lid and into the crease, blending up and out of the crease
  7. Layer more Loaded on upper lid about 1/3 of the way from outer to inner corner. Join with the lower lash line eye shadow at the outer corner and flare out slightly
  8. Trace Blackout along upper and lower lash lines, extending out slightly at the outer corner. Smudge into Loaded.
  9. Reline outer 1/3 of eye with Perversion Pencil. With a brush, fuse it into the shadow along the lash line. Seamlessly blend pencil with shadow
  10. Line the lower waterline all the way across with Perversion pencil.
  11. Line the upper waterline all the way across and into the inner corner with Perversion. Make sure the upper and lower lines meet.

I think both looks are quite similar, but I think I can re-create these 2 looks with less steps. All the layering made it darn difficult and messy for me to remove the makeup! But of course, the layering of liner and shadow did intensify the colours and made them look super dark. I will try out all 12 looks before telling you my favourite, and for the favourite, I will post a full face shot…. because really, it’s much easier to create one look per eye so I can create 2 looks at one go 😛

Until the next 2 in the look book!

  • GAHHH so GORGEOUS Lily!! So smokey and amazing! I love it with the bit of colour a lot!

    • Thanks Tracy. I can’t wait to try looks 3 and 4.

  • wow, i love them all!!!
    so sultry and sexy. this is why i want this palette rather than any naked! 🙂

    • Definitely. All the blackened shades are sexy!

  • WOW. Your eyes….looks like a WOLF!!!! Don’t get me wrong; I was just saying that the colour that you have used made you look so sexy! oh dear, I don’t want this palette. *mantra of the day*

    • Lol fox! That’s something I haven’t heard before. Hahaha!

  • Gorgeous!! loved both the looks..so intense!

    • Right? Very intense indeed 🙂

  • Lyn

    Both absolutely gorgeous! Perfect for a night out.

    • Definitely great for a night out. Heck, if I feel like it, I’d wear it to work! HAHAHA!

  • Oh wow, I can’t really decide which one I like best! I am very drawn to Loaded, but even the completely neutral version is very amazing! That IS a lot of steps though! I don’t think I’ve ever done something that complicated!

    • Yeah, definitely a lot of steps which I find a little unnecessary >_<

  • Honestly, I’m kind of over all of UD palettes at the moment, I LOVE the ones I have but I can’t keep up with all their releases (meanwhile I’m about to check my email for Cyber Monday sales sooo clearly I’m not THAT over it 😉 But anyway beautiful look!

    • This is the last one I bought, since its launch a while ago. Didn’t get any UD palettes after that. Kinda overwhelming when there are new palettes all the time. I love this one though 🙂

  • UGH I LOVE. Especially the second version with the GREEN. It’s so pretty!!!!!! I love the smoky pops of green.

    • I had to edit that photo to make the green look exactly what it does in real life. Truthfully, it still doesn’t capture that hint of mysterious green. This one is gorgeous IRL 🙂

  • Liz

    Ooooh, LOVE the second one! I can never follow 11-14 steps, lol. Good to know there’s a step by step manual though.

    • LOL, I think the 14 steps are too tedious. There are definitely some steps which can be skipped.

  • The look is so mysterious and gorgeous Lily, love it! xx

    • I meant the looks!

    • Thanks Sofia 🙂

  • Oh Lily, gorgeous, both are!!! So many steps remind me of when I used to do makeup. This was in fact, most of the time a way of justifying a client calling to have it done instead of doing it herself! I agree with you, several can be skipped. 🙂

    • Really? Is that how to justify? HAHAHAHA!!!
