You want your party eyeshadow look to keep the focus on you

Want your eyes to be the attention-getters this party season? Whether you’re using pale cream to brighten, bronze to add warmth or rich aquatic hues to add intensity, there’s a trick to bringing everything into focus.

Check out our favourite party eyeshadow look picks that you can wear while clinking glasses and raising eyebrows!
