Kohl rimmed soft smokey gold eye makeup tutorial


Hi everyone!!!
I will share an eye makeup tutorial after a long time where I have used colours like gold, brown and kohl rimmed eyes to make it appropriate to go with Indian wear.
I have used only two eye shadows and a kajal with a mascara and nothing else for this look.
Here are the steps:
I filled in brows (and later I realized that above the brow bone, it was smudged accidently, which I wasn’t even aware.:P)

1. Anyways, I applied eye shadow primer and then some loose powder under my eyes so that I could dust off any eye shadow fall outs.
2. & 3.. I used a gold shadow on my lids and kept it below the crease area.
4. & 5. I used a brown shadow which was matte on the crease
6. With a blending brush, I blended the matte brown shadow over and above the crease.
7. I applied kohl on the water line.
8. Applied some below the waterline and using a smudger brush I smudged it.
9. I used the same kohl, (Lakme Eyeconic kajal) and lined my upper lashline with that, smudging it again with a smudger brush.
10. & 11. Used my Avon mascara and the upper and lower lashes.
12. And I am done!!

As the eyes are lined with kohl making the look sultry, I kept the eyeshadow colors very neutral and something that can suit most of our Indian skin tones. If you are more towards the duskier side then you may use a darker brown to define the crease and a coppery gold instead of a yellow toned gold.
Hope you like!
Have a great weekend!
