Grey & Purple Smokey Eyes FOTD

After my initial success with Maybelline's Colour Tattoo 24 Hour eyeshadow in Painted Purple, I decided to pick up a second one in Tough as Tauple.

It's not a colour I usually wear, but I pulled it out for this look:

Without Flash:

With Flash

UDPP (primer)
Maybelline Color Tattoo in Tough as Taupe (base)
MAC Electra e/s (on lid)
Annabelle Carbon eyeshadow (in crease)
MAC Omega e/s (blending colour between crease and highlight)
Wet n' Wild Color Icon Vanity Palette (matte black in outer V)
Wet n' Wild Brulee e/s (as highlight)
Annabelle Eye Kohl e/l in Fiesta (on lower lashline)
MAC Violet pigment (on top of Fiesta e/l)
MAC blacktrack fluidline
Red Cherry lashes
Maybelline Define-A-Brow in Dark Brown
Maybelline One by One mascara

I ended up adding the purple on the lower lashline, because I'm not a huge fan of grey smokey eyes on myself.

Surprisingly though, this look ended up creasing REALLY bad at the end of the night. Not sure if it was Tough as Taupe base, or because of the Annabelle Carbon eyeshadow in the crease. I've noticed that whenever I use Carbon, I have trouble getting an opaque colour, and I notice it creases/fades badly on me.
