Nothing beautifies your eyes more than a smokey-eyed look. Bollywood’s love affair with dramatic eyes is no secret. From Kareena Kapoor to Deepika Padukone – smokey eyes have been a constant show-stealer. Even though this trend of smokey eyes started decades ago, this turned out to be a signature makeup idea that stayed with us forever. From books to movies tos songs, proud owners of kohl black eyes dominated countless hearts. They make your eyes look more intense and attractive. Since smokey eyes are back to trend or re-gaining their throne, we decided to do a piece on them. So, let’s get into it.
What You Will Need
Creating a perfect smokey eye requires a ton of makeup products, right? Well, not really. If you know how to make the look, you can achieve it just by using only three products. Or we must use only gel-based eyeliners and many eyeshadows to get the effect. But you can create the look with a perfect waterproof kajal, concealer, and eyeshadow (preferably black and brown). Check out the Lotus cosmetics products while looking for eye makeup products.
If you are anything like this, you will try to achieve maximum results from minimum products.
In that case, products you will need the following:
- Ecostay Longlasting Kajal – Black
- Lotus ECOSTAY Insta Hide Crème Concealer in the shade Rich Shell
- Ecostay Velvet Eye Shadow-moon night
- Proedit HD Mascara
You must clean your face before using any makeup products. So, before you go for any eye makeup, clean up your eyes and eyelids.
How to Achieve the Dramatic Smokey Eye
Step 1: Let the Concealer help you
To create a smokey eye shadow look, you must even out the skin tone of your eyelids. If you don’t have eyeshadow primer, don’t worry. You can use concealer to hide the pigmented parts of your eyes. You can use concealer on the crease as well. Make sure that the base makeup for the crease is well-done. For a skin-friendly concealer, you can check out Lotus Herbal concealer in the shade Rich Shell. This concealer gives a great coverage and helps you cover the dark and pigmented areas around your eyes. It gives a perfect finish to your base.
Step 2: Masterstroke of Kajal
Ecostay Longlasting Kajal can be your perfect choice to create your dream smokey eyes. As the kajal is our key product here, you have to use it with patience and precision. This smudge-proof and waterproof kajal will help to draw intense black lines around your eyes and give them the definition. Start with drawing the border on the upper lash line. After you are marked on the line, draw a thick line. Now you have a thickly drawn line. You can use a Q-tip brush to smudge the upper part of the thick line. Now draw on the line with your lower lash line. Smudge it just a teensy bit on the outer corner.
Step 3: Let the Eyeshadow Do its Magic
Now comes the time to bring out the big gun- the eye shadow. Pick an eyeshadow palette with the natural tones needed to rock smokey eyes. You can try Lotus Ecostay Velvet Eye Shadow – Moon Night. The charcoal grey shade of this palette will help you carete that coveted smokey effect. This eyeshadow has a soft velvety finish and it is quite pigmented and stays on for a long time. You can also opt for dark brown and black eye shadows. Use your eyeshadow brush and colour your lower crease with dark colour and a lighter version of the same colour on the lower section to create a shadowy smokey look.
Step 4: Mascara
For the final touch, put lots of mascara on your lashes. You can apply Proedit HD Mascara. This amazing mascara provides volumes to your lashes, lengthen and curl them in the process. It gives your lashes the perfect dark balck colour, adding mystery and drama to your eyes. This HD mascara is the ultimate product to create those beautiful lashes.
If You Are Feeling Bold
If you want to avoid settling with the traditional smokey-eyes look, choose peppy, vibrating shades that go with your vibe. You can try a pink and golden combo or electric blue and silver combo for a new stylish look. If you are looking for interesting eye shadows, check out Lotus Herbals’ eyeshadow range.
When You Can Opt for Smokey Eyes
Smokey eyes are perfect for any fancy party and an intimate get-together.
If you choose western attire, you can wear a short bling dress with heels and keep your hair down. With this look you can wear big dangler earrings. Go for a neat bun for your hair and try the same look in the maxi dress too. If you choose an ethnic look, we would suggest going for a black or bottle green georgette saree, a black sequinned bluse and pairing it up with a pearl choker, big studs, and glossy lips and heels.
Smokey eyes are a cklasic look. This is one such makeup trend that will never be out of fashion. A beautiful pair of smokey eyes are enough to create storms in the brave hearts. With our easy tips, now you can create the eternal smokey eyes like a pro. We hope you are ready to turn heads.
