Soft Party Eyes

Hey guys, here's a softer alternative to all of the heavy 'in your face' (which I do love, by the way!) party looks that we usually see cropping up in the makeup comm around this time of year.

Not everyone is comfortable with glitter strewn across their eyes, so I thought it'd be nice to show that you can still look playful and how to make a subtle statement with colour as an alternative to piling on the sparkles but of course you could always amp it up as you please ;)

I personally always go for something dark and smokey at parties and on nights out but I'm going to make it my mission to try out more looks like this over Christmas and New Year. 

What kind of looks are everyone else normally drawn too at this time of year? Leave a comment! :)

  1. Your eyes always look so blue no matter what eye shadow you wear! I really like the mint green on the lid.
