With luxe fabrics gracing the party scene, with glittering lurex and sequined glamour, why not add a bit of shimmer to those smokey party eyes!?

Ditch the safe blacks, browns and greys and opt for the coppers, golds and jeweled hues in deep blues and greens for a dramatic or demure take on the traditional ‘smokey eye’

If cream effect is what you are after, but in easy application form, then try Bobbi Brown longwear cream shadow sticks (Bobbi Brown/ John Lewis £21.00). You can slick this onto your lid from lash line working up to the socket and with a soft blending brush blend the edge to avoid any harsh lines, taking a sweep of colour under the bottom lid and creating that ‘cat’ eyed shape.

Take the colour this season, into the inner socket of the eye and finish the look with a slick of black mascara to add some drama and definition.

Add a nude lip to keep the dramatic impact focused on the eyes, I love MAC Crème D’Nude (Mac Cosmetics £15.50) Pat the edges of your lips to break the line and make your pout look bigger and totally kissable!
