Cha Chas’s tips and hints on how to do the perfect Smoky Eye:
As with most makeup experimentation, I’ve learnt how to get the most out of our little pots of treasure by accident. I used to layer multiple colours on top of each other and blend as I would have with the powder shadows I was so used to using… I found the colours lost their clarity and became smudgy. The trick with EYE2EYE is to layer gently and blend cleverly, using flashes of accent colours as a finishing ‘’top coat’’ brings the eye to life.
Build up layers
Starting with the base EYE2EYE, whether light or dark, build up light layers until you have reached your desired depth of colour. Blend each layer as you go, over the lid and into the socket to achieve the overall shape of your eye. Using a lighter colour over the top of your base colour, will lift and brighten the eye.
Add a wash of the lighter shade
When doing this look I like to wait until the base colour has set a little, then wash the lighter shade over the centre of the eye lid, where the light would naturally catch and then blend a little either side. A touch of the lighter accent shade under the lower lashes is a pretty and eye catching extra touch.
For a more traditional smoky eye look
If the second shade you are using with is darker and intended to add depth and drama to a smoky eye option, then application is be concentrated, closer to the lash line and sparingly on the outer lower corners. A little in the socket and on the outer corner of the lid will add the definition of a ‘’traditional’’ smoky eye.

All the products featured on my social media channels are products I have personally gone out and discovered. As I only try make-up and skincare on myself I cannot guarantee that all of the products I recommend will suit you because everyone’s skin is different, and some people might be allergic to certain ingredients.
Wherever possible please test products out on yourself before purchasing.
Nothing on my social channels shall be interpreted as providing dermatological, medical or other such advice, and it is always best to seek the advice of a suitable professional should you have any such concerns.
I only feature products I like, or want to try. The products I use in these videos are either purchased by me, or occasionally sent over by PRs when I have specifically asked for that product. (This saves me spending a fortune every month!)
I do not accept payments to make any of the videos on this channel, so to make it easy for you ladies, where appropriate, I will embed links so that you can have seamless ways to purchase. (As I know that some of you require instant gratification).
