Finding the right eyeshadow for day can be confusing (how smokey is too smokey?). But when in doubt, go for the gold. A soft, subtly shimmery wash of gold shadow on lids is so flattering – and surprisingly neutral! – on brown skin. We’re huge fans of Shiseido Hydro-Powder Eyeshadow in Goldlights, a dewy cream formula that transforms to a powdery glaze on skin. The finish is gorgeous, the color is brilliant, and it lasts for hours. Your lids will thank you!
