D&G Eyes: Quick trick for a night out!

I've been super jazzed to try this new palette from Dolce & Gabbana. Judging from their lipsticks, I know I'm gonna love the tone and velvety feel of their shadows. I was happily gifted a tester in color "Nude", but you can purchase the "full" quad which comes in Dolce's signature, gold packaging. Isn't it too pretty!?
Step one towards softly amped eyes: Outline lid to crease with a soft, highlighter shade in a peach, pearl, or champagne, like so:
Step 2: Create a wash of color with the middle tone from lid to crease, concentrating the bulk of the saturated color on the center of the eye lid. In this case, I chose the orangey tone shown above.
Step 3: Add the medium brown  tone from crease to beginning of brow-bone.
Step 4: With an angle brush followed by blending brush, add darkest tone in plum shade to outer edges of
the upper and lower lash line, and blend out creases to create a "winged" effect.
Step 5: Darken outer edges for further contour.
Step 6: Smooth all edges with a rounded, blending brush. No hard lines should be apparent!
Step 7: Finish with a swoosh of black line on the inner rim of the eye and Voila! Subtly smokey eyes for a night out.
Love those smouldering neutrals! And if you want to take a crack at them, you can find the Quad sets from D&G at these locations in the United States. And for you LA based readers, head straight to Sak's here.
