Smokey eyes is always is a difficult look to sport. Many a times, it turns out as a punched eye or a racoon eye. That too on Indian skintones, the precise description would be, when it looks like 'Under eye dark circles', you know you're grossly wrong with the way you applied smokey eyes!!!
A couple of times, I had tried to sport the smokey eye when getting ready to go somewhere. But everytime, invariably it turned out bad and everytime, I had to start over again on the make-up part.
So finally, I decided to try this when I am free and not in a hurry when I am getting ready to some event. Now, was the prefect time and I sat in front of the mirror.
I didn't want the typical, 'just around the eyes' smokey look, but a dramatic look, so I extended the eyeshadow to the outer edge of my brows. I am not a big fan of mascara, so I skipped it!!!
And the result, I think..... Not Bad!!! I liked whatever turned out!!! :)
Eyeshadow: Lakme Quartet in MoonDust
Eyeliner (also used as Kajal): Lakme 9 to 5 Defining Eyeliner in Black
Errr... Forgive me on two things. First, I didn't apply a make-up base at all. Not even my Lakme Creme Compact... Just my moisturizer!!! I thought, just a trial, why apply base coat. But it turned out well, that I thought I should share it with you!!! Secondly, my eyebrow is not shaped. Its been a couple of weeks since I got it done!!! :(
