We have all heard that our eyes can speak volumes. Good eye makeup always enhances the beauty of your eyes. Kajal, also known as kohl, is one product that can transform the way you look. Be it a simple on-the-go look or something more elaborate like party makeup, who doesn’t love giving the eyes their due in the limelight? After all, they are the first things that grab attention.
Below is a step-by-step process on how to apply your kajal:
You Will Need
- Kajal/kohl pencil
- Smudging brush
Before you begin, clean the area under the eye as well as the eyelashes with a makeup remover or a cleanser thoroughly. For people with dry skin, moisturize the eye area well, and dab on some loose/pressed powder. This prevents creases on the eyes.
Apply the kajal on the lower eyelid to make the waterline prominent.
Take a sharp kajal pencil. Start lining from the outer corner of the eye and then fill it towards the inner corner.
If you wish to create a subtle smoky eye look, apply a thick layer of kajal on the lower rim of your eye and smudge it gently with a smudging brush.
Apply the kajal on the rim of the upper lid. This creates an illusion of wearing an eyeliner and opens up the eyes more.
Use your kajal as an eyeliner to create a more defined look. Start by applying the kajal on the upper eyelid by closing the eyes. Draw a soft line from the outer corner to the inner corner of the eye. Use shorter strokes for better application, and then, gradually thicken it.
For occasions like weddings, cocktail parties, etc. you can amp up your look by using different colored eye pencils. You can also use false lashes to add more glamor.
