There’s still a little bit of summer left, but as the weeks go by, our wardrobes and make-up kits are starting to embrace the change brought on by another wonderful fall season. So to help you shift the focus from day to night, we’ve selected these 6 smoky eye makeup looks that makes you irresistible once the evening arrives: they’re sexy, sultry, modern and they really make your eyes pop. Smokey eyes have been a big style for quite a long time and there's no sign this particular trend is dying anytime soon. It’s partly because they can make a woman look hot even if she’s wearing pyjamas.  

Wear them now, paired to a radiant complexion and nude lips, and keep on perfecting them all throughout autumn, when they will look just as wonderful teamed to a wine lip and bold eyebrows. Choose your favourite shimmery smoky eye look below and get that glam diva look.
