Fashion: Welcome to the big smoke

Here's an autumn trend you can get to grips with early: the classic smoky eye. Dior’s new three-colour palette contains a nourishing base to prep the eyelid, plus two shades of shadow - onematte for a simple and stark smoky look and one iridescent for when the dress code calls for a bit of disco. And to top it off there’s a long-wearing liner, which is just the thing for bringing out your more feline attributes. Out 16 August, £32, available nationwide
