Golden Eyes with Urban Decay's Naked Palette

My family and I are going to see the opera Aida by Giuseppi Verdi on saturday at the Detroit opera, and, since Aida is set in Egypt, I'm planning on doing some gold eye makeup.  I thought I'd try out today what I want to do on saturday.

Products:  NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cashmere as base
                 Urban Decay Half Baked on lid and lower lashline
                 Urban Decay Smog lightly in crease
                 Wet 'n' Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow in Creme Brulee under brow
                 Sephora Long Lasting Liquid Liner in Metallic Gold on upper lash line
                 Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Liquid Liner in Black in upper lashline
                 Milani Liquif'Eye Metallic Eyeliner Pencil in Gold on lower lashline
                 Tarina Tarantino Eye Dream Hyperliner in Tommy Jet on waterline
                 Guerlain Maxi Lash Mascara in Noir

From Left:  NYX Jumbo Eye pencil in Cashmere, Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Half Baked, Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Smog, Milani Liquif'Eye in Gold, Sephora Liquid Liner in Metallic Gold, Physicians Formula Liquid Liner in Black
I used the two liquid liners on the top lash line as a double line--the black closest to the lashes and the gold a little bit above it.

All of these golds are a little bit different, so I think it makes for a multi-tonal kind of look.  The Milani Liquif'Eye liner is definitely more of an antique gold, and the Sephora liquid liner is more orangey.  

What do you have planned this weekend?
