Eye of the Day! Great Look for Blue Eyes Using Copper and Bronze

I've been getting in to this whole taking pictures of my makeup looks lately, partly because sometimes you think your makeup looks amazing when you look in the mirror but when you look at photos you're thinking.. uhm, what happened to the hot piece I just saw in the mirror? Or what's worse, when think you look amazing under nice, soft, forgiving, bathroom lighting and then you catch a glimpse of yourself in the rear view mirror in natural light where all flaws are revealed and poor technique and bad color combos are put on blast. But that didn't happen today, at least not where the eyes are concerned, so I thought I'd share. This is a great color combination for blue eyes because oranges, coppers, bronzes, and browns are a blue-eyed girl's BFF. So this is what I used today:
Eye Products:
TFSI eye primer
Urban Decay Half-Baked in the inner corner of the eye (its in the original Naked palette and about 1/2 a dozen other UD palettes)
MAC Coppering eyeshadow (a must-have)
A nameless bronzey eyeshadow from Tarte in the crease
Bare Escentuals The Truth quad, the darkest brown in the outer-v
Bare Escentuals Dream Sequence, the matte ivory as browbone highlight
Prestige Retractable Waterproof eyeliner, brown (upper lash line and waterline)
Tarte Shimmering Taupe Waterproof cream eyeshadow (blended into lower lash line over the Prestige brown)
Kat Von D Sin-Ful Lash Mascara
YBF brow pencil, taupe
