Anna Kendrick knows how to switch up her smoky eye for summer!Smoky eyes are a go-to look for many women who want to play up their smoldering gaze, but it's not always a great option on warm summer nights. Dark gray and black eye makeup can get smudgy when there's a lot of extra heat, but actress Anna Kendrick has found a way to make her smoky eyes work for summer.

According to Glamour Magazine's beauty blog, Anna glammed up a regular smoky eye by using a halo of bronze eyeshadow around the traditional dark shades. It's a fresher take on the look that's perfect for summer, and it's easier to pull off when it's hot out.

To get the effect yourself, apply your smoky eye makeup as usual, but skip the black or brown eyeliner on your inner water lines. Then, use a bronze shadow like Jane Iredale – PurePressed Eye Shadow in Glimmer Gold all around the outside and especially in your inner corners.

Pair the look with a peachy-pink blush like Youngblood – Pressed Mineral Blush in Nectar, then use a matching lip gloss. Pretty!
