Smokey burgundy eyes with the Smashbox Double Exposure palette

In a recent video, I think it was my February favourites, I'd some lovely comments which is always nice.  Except this time the majority of the comments weren't about the products I was loving and talking about!  No, everyone wanted to know what I was wearing on my eyes.  So I thought it was high time I film a tutorial to show you my current favourite go to smokey eye because we all know I love to play up the drama on the aul eyeballs.

You can read my full review of the Smashbox Double Exposure palette here where I show you this eye look in detail, but long story short is that I love it.  This palette was made for me with it's array of purple, neutral and burgundy shades and has fast become my go to palette of choice.  The look I've been doing the most is this deep smokey eye which makes my eyes look even greener, but be not afraid, for one does not have to pack on as much makeup as I like to!  You can totally do a more subtle look and I might do a video on that too, to show you that I don't always go full on!

You can see a full list of products used in the Description Box of the video here.  But for now, watch me pile on all the makeup!

The Double Exposure palette is on Smashbox counters now and it's €44 well spent.  You'll see in the video that there's no fallout whatsoever with any of the shadows, they blend effortlessly and make eejits like me look like I know what I'm doing!



  1. Gorgeous! I got this palette for Mother's Day and love it. I swear the shadows get better as the day wears on, melting into the eye..fab X
