Smoke It Out
The classic go-to for dialling up a look from day to night is a smoky eye. If you’re going for a bold eye look, choose a nude lip colour that doesn’t wash out your complexion.

Metals for an Edge
You can focus on the eyes with shimmery eye shadows that catch the light beautifully. Metallic greens and golds can be blended to create a smoky, sultry effect, while a touch of champagne or gold shimmer in the inner corners of the eyes to add a twinkle.
