When it comes to make-up I score a big Zero.
However I do love Kohls and eye-liners.
I feel naked without earrings and the same goes for my eyes.
Without the liner and kajal I can never step out.
At the behest of a fellow blogger and follower I decided to bring something to this blog that would be helpful in grooming myself a little bit more too- A small little lesson in make-up. I just love this trend of eye make-up that is doing the rounds. Smoky Eyes!
oooo how it makes those beautiful eyes look seductive. A whole new personality surfaces...
So here goes Rose aka Ms. Inky Pink tells us how this is done.
She works with a very basic professional eye make-up set from Kuwait.
But you may find many lovely ones with Chambor / Maybelline she says.
Step 1. : You need a Mettalic Eye Shadows Pallet and an applicator.
Step 2 & 3: You will need to cover the eye lid and the area under the eyebrow with a base of the metallic white you see in the left top corner of the pallet.
Then only the top of the eyelid gets a coat of the lightest shade of silver on the pallet ( Top right corner) And the eye will look like this..
Moving the applicator from the inside corner of the eye to the outside in smooth strokes but stop in the middle of the eye. Like this..
We are trying to achieve a gradation of shades from dark to light metallic silver beginning from the inner corner of the eye-lid to the outer corner.
Step 5: Then take the darkest charcoal silver shade on your applicator and apply it on the inner corner of the eye-lid with smooth but short strokes. Like this..
Now we are almost done. She has taught me the simplest method of achieving the smoky eyed look.
Step 6: Give the finishing touches with a wet waterproof eye-liner . Trace the shape of your eye on the upper eye-lid and from the outside on the lower eye-lid and it will look like this...
Step 7: She shapes the brow with a black Givenchi kajal pencil to enhance the smoky look and to refine the shape.
And our model Riya Alizadeh looks like this..
Wearing a day eye make-up done in a similar style but working with lighter shades Riya looked like this....
She is pretty, isn't she?
