The party season is officially upon us, y’all. It’s taking every ounce of self control we have not to crack a bottle of champers and say laters to the rest of our 2016 workload already, but we’ve decided to hold it together long enough to wise you up to the benefits of metallic eyeshadow these holidays.

Your social calendar is about to pop right off with a milli end-of-year parties and beginning-of-year parties, presenting countless opportunities to be your glammest self. Nothing will you get you more holiday appropos than a swipe of metallic on yo’ lids, and boy do we have you sorted — whether you’re after a splash of gold, silver or bronze.

Go for dewy skin and a low-key makeup look to ensure that you look more like a DTP goddess and not akin to Ke$ha in her ~iconic~ ‘TiK ToK’ music video.

Scroll through the above gallery to see how it’s done.
