For those of you who are afraid to try the smokey eye look because of its complexity, or for those new to makeup, the 3-step smokey eye is your holy grail. Scroll down to know how to get the look…
STEP 1
 

STEP 1

Grab a brownish glittery kajal/liner and apply it on your eyelid. Start working your way upwards and apply the kajal/liner to about half of your eyelid. Now, take a small brush and smudge the kajal while spreading it all over your eyelid (stopping before the crease) for a shadow-like effect. Don’t worry if you don’t have the steadiest hands—when it comes to a smokey eye the messier, the better.

STEP 2
 

STEP 2

Apply the same brown kajal you used for your eyelid on your bottom lash line. Don’t go all the way in though—your eyes will look smaller. Work your way from the outside, and go three quarters in, while keeping your eyes open. Then, grab your brush as fast as you can and spread the kajal out. By doing so, you’ll ensure there’s darkness at the root, but the rest is blended well and gives a smokey eye effect.

STEP 3
 

STEP 3

Grab your black mascara, and apply it to your upper eyelashes—be sure to start at the root, though. Then, use a flat eyeliner brush and push your bottom lashes downwards with a sweeping motion, and you’ll be done.
