Truly, we didn’t see this coming! Just when we thought that smokey eyes were a thing of the past, B-town beauties surprised us with their smokin’ hot smokey eye makeup looks that complemented their traditional outfits oh-so perfectly. And, here we were thinking that smokey eyes looked better with modern, western looks. But oh boy, were we wrong!

The past weekend was all about celebrating the festival of lights and no one does it better than Bollywood. Biggies like Amitabh Bachchan, Anil Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor threw the grandest Diwali parties for the film fraternity, which meant a treat for our eyes. Being the beauty junkies that we are, we obviously took notes of every celebrity look that stood out. And guess what? Wherever we looked, we saw smokey eyes -- the highlight this festive season. Here’s proof.

Bold and beautiful

Shraddha Kapoor looked like a million bucks in a purple and green silk saree as she stepped out to celebrate Diwali. The actress, who is otherwise not big on dramatic looks, went all out with a sultry smokey look. The sleek, centre-parted bun adorned with a gajra tied her desi look together.

Black-bronze hybrid

Anushka Sharma’s Diwali look is unmissable! The diva rocked a bright, embroidered lehenga as she stepped out with her better-half Virat Kohli to attend a Diwali party. Her eye makeup was a mix of black and bronze. While her upper lids were covered in a bronzy hue, she had a black smokey effect going all over her lower lids. We are totally digging this combination!

Subtle yet smokey

Trust Kareena Kapoor Khan to make a statement each time she makes an appearance. This begum looked all things royalty in a blue and sea green lehenga that she sported at Sonam Kapoor Ahuja’s Diwali bash. The diva, who is always keeping it minimal with makeup, surprised us with a subtle smokey look—a combination of gold and black. It went perfectly well with all the gold detailing on her attire.

Shimmer baby

If there’s one actress who’s always has her eye makeup on point, it has to be Sonakshi Sinha. From bold smokey looks to edgy eyeliner, she is never one to step back from experimenting. Therefore, we weren’t surprised when we saw her sport dark blue smokey eyes matching the colour of her shimmery lehenga. If we had to describe Sona’s Diwali look in one word, it’d be regal!

Kat eye

Knowing how minimal her makeup looks have been in the past, we certainly didn’t expect Katrina Kaif to do a full-fledged smokey look for the festive season. Dressed in a gorgeous red Sabyasachi lehenga, the actress played up her eyes with an extended smokey look. We love how she broke away from the regular no-makeup makeup look for a change!
