I used my Maybelline Tough as Taupe as a base first, before applying the dark gray color all over the lid. Then, I took the dark, matte purple and applied that to the outer lid, while blending it upwards to the crease.
Then, I took the lighter creme colored highlight and blended it towards my brow.
I think that using Tough as Taupe as a base is what made me like this palette a little bit more. I just wanted to create a wearable smoked out look for the weekend or special occasion, say- a birthday outing? :)
