FOTD: Intense Smokey Eye w/ Mac Smoked Ruby

I didn't so much intend for this to be Arabesque but it just turned out that way! Smoked Ruby is very intense and over Rust Jumbo Pencil (NYX), it intensified it further. The look was quite dark so I ran with it... and added the hit of orange underneath for some interest. I really like how this turned out, especially with how my camera freaks out over reds and oranges! Could have done with some falsies, but my parents were coming over for dinner ;-)

As a side note, I finally watched Inception (late, eh?). Holy what the hell, Batman! It certainly sparked an interesting discussion afterward and I'll have even more interesting dreams (or will I? Haha!)
