Get your game face on with some great eyeshadow palettes. We like the ones from M.A.C and Chanel for their selection of smoky, evening-appropriate shades and variety of textures — including shimmer finishes for nights out.
1. M.A.C Navy Times Nine, $72
2. Chanel Les 4 Ombres in Tissé Smoky, $90
Finish up your eye makeup with a good eyeliner. This version from Dior allows you to create either thin, precise lines or more dramatic looks depending on which side of the applicator you use.
3. Diorshow Pro Liner in Pro Black, $37
If you're letting your eyes take centrestage, dial down your lipstick a notch. This one from Givenchy has a balmy texture and sheer colour, but the hot pink shade will still allow your lips to stand out.
4. Givenchy Le Rouge-Á-Porter in Rose Perfecto, $52
If you want your hairdo to stay in place — especially if you're sporting waves or an updo — mist it with a generous dose of hairspray. Fix any emergencies throughout the night by carrying a mini version in your purse.
5. TONI & GUY Hair Meet Wardrobe Mini Creative Extreme Hold Hairspray, $9.90
If you need to touch up your makeup throughout the night or refresh skin that's been dehydrated by air-conditioning, a facial mist that can be used over and under makeup is a must-have.
6. SK-II Mid-Night Miracle Essence, $89
Finally no evening out is complete without a sensual scent. We love this distinctive one from Maison Francis Kurkdjian as it offers a different twist on the traditional oud note.
7. Maison Francis Kurkdjian OUD Satin Mood Eau de Parfum
