The Ravens have more helmet mascots/emblems than most teams in the NFL.  Their first helmet emblem was submitted by Frederick E. Bouchat. He was excited to have a football team back in Baltimore.

Royal purple and black.  These colors are perfect for a smoky eyeshadow. If you look carefully at the Ravens’ color scheme you’ll notice they take on cooler tones.  You may have to experiment to see which cool toned colors will work best for your skin.  The colors are a great way to unlock your inner cartoon villainess.  I used these colors for a basic smoky eye with a graphic interest.
