Kareena’s glamorous smokey eye

Steps to achieve Kareena’s glamorous smokey eye:

Step 01: Start with a primer, take a tiny dot for each eyelid and spread evenly. If you have oily eyelids, pick a primer that gives a matte finish like the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Primer; this lightweight formula gives a smooth matte finish.

Step 02: Pick an eyeshadow palette with neutral brown and black shades to create the smokey eye look. We recommend the Lakmé Absolute Infinity Eye shadow Palette - Midnight Magic for this. Use a neutral brown eyeshadow that’s two shades darker than your skin tone as the base.

Step 03: Now, take the black eyeshadow from the same palette and apply it on your upper eyelid close to the lash line.

Step 04: Blend well to soften the look.

Step 05: Repeat steps 04 and 05 if you wish to create a bolder look.

Step 06: To add definition, apply the same colour on the lower lash line.

Step 07: Finish off the look with your favourite kajal and mascara.
