As far as we're concerned, Kendall Jenner can do no wrong in the makeup department—one of the benefits of being a supermodel, riiight? But don't write off the gilded smoky eye she rocked at last week's OUE Skyspace L.A. party as something you can't be rocking this summer. Bronze eyeshadow is universally flattering and makes your skin glow.
As we learned from Old Hollywood makeup artist Ida Gàl-Csiszar, warm sunset and amber orange tones enhance every eye color, as they accent the gold flecks in the iris' of brown eyes, and complement and intensify cool blue and green shades.
A rule of thumb: If you have fairer skin, you'll find pink and peachy leaning shades to be the most flattering, while darker skin tones are better equipped for the richer burnt and bronzed shades. As far as finish goes, we love a soft matte for daytime and shimmery metallic for the evening, but they're totally interchangeable based on preference.
