Taupe & Aubergine Night Time Cat Eyes

Hi Everyone! I wanted this week's tutorial to be a little bit different, and I was determined not to use warm peachy colours :). I used the Smashbox Girls on Film Smokebox to create this look, I hope you like it!
I applied UDPP all over the lid as a base. A dark creamy base would work too, for a more intense look.
The first colour I used was Putty, a shimmery taupe shade and I patted it all along the moving lid, leaving the inner corner free.
Next, on the same flat brush, I took a little bit of Mist, and applied in the inner third of the lid.
On a pencil brush, I took the colour Royal, a deep matte aubergine/eggplant shade and smudged it along the lashline quite thickly, almost in a winged-liner shape. The colour didn't show up the way it looks in the pan, I presume thanks to the Putty shade underneath.
I applied some of the highlight shade, Bliss, to the browbone and tearduct.
On a flat stubby brush I took a little more Royal and applied under the lower lashes, mainly keeping to the outer half and connecting with the wing.
I used Inglot gel liner #77 to line the top lashline, the water line and take the two to a point in the inner corner for that feline look.
Gosh Show Me Volume Mascara.
Ardell 120's. I also filled in my brows with the Gosh Brow Kit. Et voila!
