Red lips and a cat eye are timeless classics that will always remain close to our hearts. Well, in recent years, the bold and sultry smokey eye has also earned a place on this list. It adds drama and oomph to anyone looking to take their simple eye makeup look several notches higher.
That said, let’s also agree that getting the smokey eye right is one of the toughest jobs. If you’ve aced it, you are a true blue makeup diva. But for those who are still struggling, we have one quick hack that will make mastering the smokey eye look a child’s play.
You will need:
- Eyeliner pencil (we prefer the Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal – Black)
- Eye shadow blending brush
- Mascara (our go-to is the Lakme Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara - Night Drama)
Step 1: Start by applying primer and concealer to correct uneven skin tone around the eye area.
Step 2: Now take the Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal – Black and draw a ‘#’ symbol in the outer corner of your eyelids, but not beyond the crease.
Step 3: Use the smudger tool attached on the other end of the kajal pencil or an eyeshadow blending brush to blend the colour into your eyelids. The aim is to get a lighter shade towards the inside corners of your eyes.
Step 4: If it looks too light draw another ‘#’ and repeat step 3.
Step 5: To accentuate the look further, you can apply a darker eyeshadow on the outer corner of the eye and a shimmer eyeshadow on the inner corners.
Step 6: Finish it off by applying the Lakme Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara - Night Drama.
