Bobbi Brown Smokey eye
The Bobbi Brown Smokey eye mascara (£22) has a specially designed formula of chicory root extract and acacia gum which combines to create dramatic volume and lash separation. The mascara’s creamy texture means it is incredibly buildable, while the extreme black colour gives the appearance of longer and thicker lashes which stay clump and flake free. For a high impact smokey look, the Smokey eye Kajal liner (£18) is the mascara’s partner in crime. The liner has a super-saturated, richly-pigmented kohl-like formula and comes with a built-in smudger to create dramatic smokey eyes. Available in six shades: Noir, Black Coffee, Pacific, Black Amethyst, Jade and Storm, the liner can create dramatic, soft or, when colour is added, playful looks.

Not just perfect for tweezing, this mirror can also be used for close up make-up and with suction cups on the reverse, the mirror can attach to any smooth, clean surface.
