The Best Holiday Shadow For Your Eye Color
While a killer pair of heels never hurts, one of the prettiest (and easiest) ways to dress up your look is a smoky eye.

If you want to play up your peepers this party season, look no further than these eye color and shadow pairings. They’re guaranteed to make your lids merry and bright.
