Ezio Auditore makeup ideas

Okay, so I know I've gotten on here before and annoyed you guys trying to figure out what to do for makeup for a character, but I'm back again... what can I say, you guys give me the best tips....
Anyway, here's what I'm trying to do. There's a guy who does some really cool Assassins Creed cosplay and he does the characters Altair, Connor, and Edward... funny thing is, he doesn't do Ezio... I thought to myself "I may able to do that...". This guy literally transforms himself into each of these characters, and it's pretty incredible, because you'd never know it was the same guy...
So anyway, I would like to transform myself using makeup into Ezio from Assassins Creed 2. I've already figured out I will probably have to use a nose prosthetic, which I have figured out how to apply from the tips you guys gave me before...
I'd really like to have a very strong resemblance to the character when I'm cosplaying as him, so please give me your honesty on how close you guys actually think I can get and all that you can think of....
Me:

Ezio:

Use shading with eyeshadow to create the shadows above and below the inner parts of the eyebrows. Start on the inner corners of your eyes, make a rounded L shape from right underneath the inner portion of your eyebrow to the outside of the upper bridge of your nose, then blend out the inside of the L thoroughly and only a little bit on the outside so it's soft and somewhat natural looking with no harsh lines.

Then make little C shapes on the upper inner part of your eyebrows to give the serious/brooding (angry eyebrows) effect. The opening of the C shape should face the upper right corner of your forehead for your right eyebrow and the upper left corner of your forehead for your left eyebrow.

Example of the inner eye shading:

See how she shaded the inside of the bridge of her nose on the finished eye? It should look like that, but more dramatic, more of an L shape extending as far as your inner eyebrow.

Unfortunately I can't find any pictures that are a good example of the C shapes on the upper inner corners of the eyebrows, but if you give me a few minutes, I can find a video by MadeYewLook on YouTube where she demonstrates the angry eyebrow technique. I'll edit my post and add it in in just a bit.

That is something I've actually never heard of, but is really awesome!!! Definitely something I'm going to do now!

Yeah, I'll definitely be doing some contouring around my nose area, but his nose sticks out a lot further than mine, so I think i want to use a prosthetic as well
