If there is one line to get the smoky eye look down to perfection, than this is it. CHANEL just launched an entire collection dedicated to the must-have smoky eye. The CHANEL Smoky Eye Collection really has all you need to get the look done right. It includes an eyeliner duo, shadow quad, single shadows, and mascara.
The difference in these products is that the end result is smoky, but softer with some great CHANEL "special effects".
LA LIGNE DE CHANEL PROFESSIONAL EYELINER DUO -
The powder-based formula easily mimics both the precision of liquid liner and the smudged look of kohl pencil. Two different applicators deliver two different results that never stray: one for a precise line, the other for soft definition and gentle smudging. Available in Noir-Lamé, a must-have black matte/black shimmer combination. $45.00
LES 4 OMBRES QUADRA EYE SHADOW -
The indispensable compact with endless options for shading and shaping eyes now comes in Smoky Eyes, the perfect colour harmony to create the most desirable smoky eye effects, from subtle for day and dramatic for evening. $56.00
OMBRE ESSENTIELLE SOFT TOUCH EYESHADOW -
The creamy-soft powder eyeshadow debuts two new dramatic shades: Black Star, a pearlized silver-black, and Platine, a soft white-silver. Used wet or dry, the shades can be blended to lighten, darken, or intensify a glamorous smoky eye look. $28.50
EXCEPTIONNEL DE CHANEL INTENSE VOLUME AND CURL MASCARA -
Thick, lush lashes are the all-important finishing touch to every eye look. Now, CHANEL gives lashes the fullest advantage with captivating volume and voluptuous curves for a deeply glamorous, intense effect. The beauty coups: clump-free separation — the CHANEL point-of difference in volumizing mascara — and an innovative six-sided application brush that ensures dramatic results. The high-shine, smudge-proof formula comes in four deep, smoky shades. $28.00
To get the best smoky eye possible, I have some great tips to share. These tips are from CHANEL Celebrity Makeup Artist Kate Lee gives Tips for Her Signature Smoky Eye:
“Start with the Professional Eyeliner Duo. Draw along the lash line, bottom, top, or both depending on the desired effect, and blend out with either your finger or a brush.
Line the insides of the eye with a kohl pencil in a dark colour for intensity, or use one of my favorite tricks of late which is to use a light color or metallic eye pencil to make the eye pop.
Next, take a flat brush and gently layer on the darkest eyeshadow shade on the lash line and lid being careful not to go beyond the eyelid for an intense smoldering look.
This must have collection is available now at CHANEL.com, CHANEL counters and specialty departments stores.
