We know you spend hours trying to get the cat eye look right but this trend is far from energy-sapping. All you need to do is trace along the crease of the eyebrow using a liner or a crayon eyeshadow. Our suggestion? You can use the Lakmé Absolute Precision Eye Artist Kajal and draw a thin line right below your brow. These are metallic pencils in various colours and will easily lend that subtle glitter on your underbrows. Your other option is using the Lakmé Drama Stylist Shadow Crayons that come in a bunch of yummy metallic shades—perfect to draw that shimmery underbrow. If you’re feeling even more adventurous, you can use skin friendly glue and paste tiny sequins, glitter or even embellishments on this brow.
