We all have that one friend that never lets us down. In times of confusion, when we don’t know what to do, we turn to that one reliable friend who will bail us out. Wondering what we are going on about? The LBD, of course! This is the party season and when in doubt we always turn to the trusted little black dress to rock the party look.
But what makeup do you wear with your black dress? Smoky eyes and a nude lip are all the rage this party season and we tell you to match your smoky eye to your complexion. From Kareeena Kapoor Khan’s porcelain skin tones to Deepika Padukone’s warm tones, there is a perfect pair for you. Find it below!
Because Kareena has very pale, porcelain skin, a grey smoky eye works very well for her. Softer than the classic black eye, and more versatile, top the look with a nude lipstick.

Slightly warmer skin tones with golden undertones can experiment with emerald and metallic smoky eyes like Sonakshi Sinha.

We love the olive-gold smoky eye seen on Malaika Arora. It perfectly complements her olive undertones. And paired with her pale pink shimmer lips, it’s a winner all the way!

Anushka Sharma’s warm yellow undertones are perfect for black smoky eye. Don’t forget to dab a little highlighter on the inner corner of your eyes to really open them up.

Aditi Rao Hydari tries out a brown smoky eye with her trademark filled in brows and a nude lip with a heavily embellished gown.

We love green on Indian skin tones and it is a very festive colour. So try a dramatic, smudged green smoky eye like Deepika Padukone.
