IT'S A DATE

The allure of a smokey eye knows no bounds. Enhance and entrance for date night, holding them in your gaze with a step-by-step guide from Aidan and Elena of our Beauty Style Team. Your date night game has never been this strong.

1. PALETTE CLEANSER
For the ultimate smokey eye, it’s got to be Tom Ford’s Coco Mirage Eyeshadow Palette. Combining soft and sexy, vanilla tones pop under the eyebrow while deeper hues around the lash line emphasise the eye’s contours.

2. JUST BROWSING
Achieve perfect arches of seamless colour by filling in brows with Charlotte Tilbury’s Legendary Brows Clear Sculpting Gel.

3. BAT THOSE LASHES
A little of Armani’s Eyes to Kill Mascara usually goes a long way but on this occasion, only a generous coating will do. In inky black, expect a smouldering finish.

4. STRAIGHT DOWN THE LINE
Smudge a sweeping winged liner but don’t forget to accentuate your waterline too. Our top picks are NARS’ Larger than Life Long Wear Eyeliner in Rue Bonaparte or M·A·C’s Eye Pencil in Coffee.

5. BRIGHT EYES
A smokey eye is all about balance. Lift and brighten under the eyes with bareMinerals’ Stroke of Light Eye Brightener. For concealing any darkness, only NARS’ Radiant Creamy Concealer will do.

6. IT’S FACE TIME
To finish off this look, treat your skin to a great foundation like Laura Mercier Silk Crème Foundation or Armani Luminous Silk. With a look like this, you can look forward to a second date.
