Audrey Hepburn look

Here's a look with a sort of Audrey Hepburn style to my eyes. She usually had quite thick eyeliner on top and just a little bit of the dark shadow under the eye, just on the outer corner. I put the shadow on the bottom with a small slanted brush and made sure to blend it so it doesn't look too dramatic. From pictures I've seen it looks like she usually used more natural colours like browns and neutrals. For this look i used natural warm colours for all the makeup i was wearing so it would all blend nicely together.

The colours for eyeshadow i used are:
~Medium -french vanilla by covergirl
~dark -matte dark brown
~highlight -matte white (put on lightly so its not too white)
~just a tiny bit of black shadow blended on outer corner of eyelid

Dark purple night look

Here's a look that I think is good for going out on a date or just a night out with friends. The colours I used are really good for green eyes because it will make the green stand out a lot more since purple is opposite on the colour wheel. I used different shades of the same colour because its always best to not use different colours that will clash. I also made sure to keep the rest of my makeup in the same colour family, warm tones mixed with cool tones could just make your makeup look a little confusing. well anyways, here's what i used:
~medium shade(on the inner three quarters of eyelid, just up to crease of eye lid)-light lavender
~dark shade(on outer corner and blended into the crease)-dark purple
~highlight(under eyebrow blended into the dark in the crease and on the inner corner)-lightly shimmery white
~plus a bit of black shadow just on the outer corner
