Party eyes: For me, a glittery shadow is the ultimate going out product

We’re right in the thick of parties, soirées and catch-ups and I can’t be the only one who has a wardrobe bursting with clothes, and yet seemingly nothing to wear. Come December, with its avalanche of invitations, my year-round tactic of dressing on the casual side of smart-casual suddenly feels woefully inadequate.

But better to be under rather than over-dressed I say, as long as the host hasn’t specified a dress code of Black bloody Tie or something equally unrealistic. And if there’s one way I can get in the party spirit it’s with a bit of slap. I tend not to wear eye make-up for every- day – I blame it on the fact that I wear glasses and have a mole-like tendency to rub my eyes, but it could just be bone idleness. So for me a glittery shadow is the ultimate going out out product. Of course woman cannot sparkle by shadow alone, so out too come the eyelash curlers, mascara and eyeliner – and a good primer to stop it all sliding straight off.

This is a one-pot wonder: a rich blue-green that will look particularly special on those with brown or hazel eyes.
