It’s not wrong to stick to your tried and trusted smoky eye come party season, but if you’re willing to go out on a limb with this season’s sequined jumpsuits or velvet tuxes, why not take a chance on your makeup, too? Your eyes are the best place to begin and lend themselves to a wardrobe of different looks. From crystal-encrusted lids to smudgy sunset tones, metallic washes to thick graphic flicks, it actually doesn’t matter what finery you’re clad in from the neck down, because everyone will be focused on your beautiful blinkers. These are much less maintenance than a lip look as well; there’s no need for endless reapplications every time you need a drink top-up. Win-win. Click through for inspiration.
