I'll post the directions for the tutorial later on because I am crazy tired. I just got back from work and I've been out for 15 hours. I'm totally parched. Tomorrow's another long day of work for me as well. -- UPDATED!
Meantime, enjoy the step-by-step pictures. I need to sleep. My head is pounding like crazy.

Apply L'Oreal De Crease all over the lid up to the brow bone. Get a tiny bit of Metallic Gold Paint and swipe+pat up to the crease with a synthetic brush (I've used my concealer brush).
Apply 24K Gold pigments onto the gold base with a fluffy eyeshadow brush. Pick up some 2-I3 with the tapered crease brush. Start at the corner of the eye and start doing little circles.
Then you'll get a blob of color. Blend the blob into the crease using circular back and forth motions. Go back to the fluffy eyeshadow brush and blend the pigment residue on the brush on top of the 2-I3.
Using the round crease brush, get some Dark Plum and apply it half way into the crease. Blend the Dark Plum with the tapered crease brush.
Apply P Gold 91 under the brow bone as highlight color. Using another round crease brush, apply Sunny Beige into the inner corner of the eyes.
