While there are a zillion eyeliner styles out there to have fun with, it’s not every day that you’re in the mood for winging that wing or flicking that flick! There are days when you just want to take a sabbatical from your beloved kajal and eyeliner. So, how do you keep your eye makeup game going strong without these two essentials? We’ll tell you how!

B-town divas such as Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Ananya Panday are team minimalist (most times) and seldom wear any kajal or eyeliner! However, they still manage to slay every time they step out. How, you ask?

Here are five fool-proof hacks to make your eyes pop, without making you look sick or tired...

Tight line

If you’re not in the mood for eyeliner, then just go for an “invisible eyeliner”. This backstage trend is the secret to slaying any eye makeup look. Tight lining is to line the upper waterline to create a fuller, wide-eyed look. This technique also creates an illusion of dark, dense lash roots.

Brighten up the inner corners

Highlighting the inner corners of your eyes can make your eyes look more awake. Either reach for a highlighter or a nude shimmering eye shadow to highlight the inner corner of your eyes as well as your brow bone. We suggest you get your hands on the Lakmé 9 To 5 Eye Quartet Eyeshadow - Desert Rose and highlight the inner corner of your eyes to make them appear bigger and brighter.

Nail that cut crease

Fill in a warm eye shadow hue into the crease of your eyes with the help of a fluffy brush. Sweep the brush from the outer corner to the inner corner of your eyes in a windshield wiper motion. This fool-proof technique is sure to make your eyes pop instantly.

Add drama to your lashes

Dramatic lashes can take your eye makeup game to an all-new level. If you want to make your eyes appear bigger and more awake, go all out with your eyelashes. Curl them, prime them and add double coats of mascara to add volume to your lashes. Try the Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara for intensely curled lashes.

Fuller brows for the win

Fuller, arched brows can help frame your eyes and face. Groom your eyebrows by tweezing or threading regularly and to fill in the strays, reach out for the Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Eyebrow Pencil - Dark Brown. This will give you evenly, defined brows.
