Max Factor Smoky Eyeshadow in Bronze Haze, £6.99: This cream-based, gorgeously textured chocolate eyeshadow pen glides on seamlessly for no fuss, no mess smokey-eyed seductiveness.

Yves Saint Laurent Luxurious Mascara Shocking Volume, £23.50: The multi-directional bristles and the super-lux formula of this magnificently thickening mascara creates full, high-impact lashes for the piece de resistance to this look.
