Party season is fast approaching, but Selena Gomez just proved that she is totally ready for the influx of festivities.

 As one would expect from the founder of a cool-girl beauty brand, Selena's makeup game is always on point.

 The former Disney star's latest look, shared on her Instagram Stories, poses no exception, providing a masterclass in smokey festive glam.

Rare Beauty's ethos is all about "breaking down unrealistic standards of perfection", but frankly, from where we're standing, her recent sultry eyeshadow looked nothing short of flawless.

 The Only Murders in the Building star practically broke the internet when she showed off her new blonde highlights, but what caught our eye was how her lighter locks paired seamlessly with a makeup trend classic: a cool-toned smokey eye.

The star opted for a grey-toned smokey eye

 Tight liner accentuated her dark brown eyes, extending out into graphic double-flicks, richly reminiscent of the look that defined the 1960s.

 Selena's dramatic eye felt categorically high-octane, complemented by an apricot flush across her cheeks and a neutral lip.

 She styled her makeup with a black bouclé blazer, allowing beaded trims to provide the glitz.

 Party looks traditionally go hand in hand with chunky glitter, but Selena's grey smokey eye posed an excellent alternative if you prefer more subtle tones, but still with a high-drama focus.

Selena's chic eye makeup moment comes just after the star schooled us in courtside cool.
