Purple Smokey Eyes

A few weekends ago I went out to a party (a Nigerian one to be precise) and after much deliberation whilst I was getting ready I decided on a subtle purple smokey eye with a nude lip. I wasn't too sure about it at first because over the years I somehow have fallen into a comfortable zone where I prefer to go simple on the eyes and then wear a bold lip. However, once I finished my makeup I realised that I actually do like bolder eyes on me and I may even start to wear them more often.
