Step 4

Once you’re through with the makeup for the base of your eyes, use the Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal in Brown to draw a thick line on the upper eyelid as well as the bottom lid. Smudge it with your fingers for maximum effect.

Step 5

Next comes the kajal Application. First make a triangular shape on the corner of your eyes. After this, take the same eye-shadow brush that already has the brown shadow on it and smudge the kajal on the upper eyelids as well as the entire socket.





Step 6

To play up your eyes further, add some black kohl on the lower lash line, especially toward the corners. Once you’re done with this, use the brush to smoke it out a little bit.

Step 7

Choose the lightest shade of eye shadow in your palette and taking some of it on each of your ring fingers, apply it on the centre of your eyelid. Line the upper eyelid yet again, this time with the Lakmé Absolute Precision Liquid Liner. Finish off with a generous coat of Mascara and you should be ready to rock a smokey eyed look.

Remember that a smokey eye look can be achieved with other colors too. The basic smokey eye involves both brown and black but if you are feeling adventurous, you can follow the same steps to achieve a smokey eye in just about any colour.  Wear a brown smokey eye to transform your work look into something more exciting and add the intensity of black for sexy, sensual eye makeup that is guaranteed to make you stand out in the crowd.
