6 Bollywood-inspired Smokey Eyes to wear to your Diwali party this year

Some makeup looks come and go, but the smokey eye is forever. It could be anything you want it to be, if done right. Just take a look at Bollywood’s most gorgeous leading ladies—all of them have managed to rock different kinds of smokey eye looks at a variety of events.

This Diwali, why not don this timeless makeup look? If you’re looking for a bit of inspiration, we’ve put together 8 different smokey eye looks that have been worn by our favorite Bollywood divas…


Kareena Kapoor Khan

Sonakshi Sinha

We’re head-over-heels for this beautifully simple smokey eye look. The stunning actress managed to give the usually bold smokey eye look a fresh spin by making it seem subtle. This look uses smudged kohl to define the lower lash line, and nude eye shadow on the crease for a lighter, more natural look.


Anushka Sharma

Sonakshi Sinha

When in doubt, just go for the regular, classic smokey eye! And that’s exactly what Anushka Sharma did here! With all-black eyeshadow and kohl liner, the actress managed to nail the classic look, even with a traditional outfit.


Priyanka Chopra

Sonakshi Sinha

Priyanka Chopra makes smokey eyes look a lot more fun by adding some vibrant colour to them. She goes for a more casual, laid-back look by using teal eye shadow to amp up her smokey eyes.


Shraddha Kapoor

Sonakshi Sinha

We’re totally diggin’ this ‘subtle-but-not-quite’ smokey eye look on Shraddha Kapoor. What we love is how the bottom lash line of the actress’ eyes is only slightly defined, while the top carries all the drama.

Kajol never fails to impress. Whether it’s her acting, or her makeup— she’s always on point! For this smokey eye look, the actress has only defined her lower lash lines and eyelids with kohl liner, and has applied nude eye shadow to her creases, creating perfect definition!
