What: Yves Saint Laurent Ombres Duolumieres Eye Shadow Duos, $39.50

There's no better time to test-drive sexy smoky eyes than the upcoming holiday party season. But sometimes, no amount of visual research can help you create the perfect smoky eye.Yves Saint Laurent makes things just a little bit easier, combining complementary shades in their eye shadow duos to ensure foolproof color mixing.

Their Ombres Duolumieres each contain a light shade to brighten and widen eyes for a wide-awake look plus a complementary dark shade to add some smoky structure. The dense pigment of the shadows holds their sheen and sparkle beautifully, making for a rich, long-lasting wear. Follow your own color cues to determine which color duet—greens, golds, blues, navies, peaches, tawnies—works best for you (hint: matching your eye color is always a safe bet). Then use the two brushes—a fat, flat one for contouring and a pointier, smaller one for lining and defining—to finish off your smoldering new look.
