Step 1 : Apply a base/primer

Since I’m doing a golden smokey eye, I have used MAC Indianwood paint pot as base.

Step 2 : Apply kohl on upper lash line and waterline.

I have used MAC Smolder kohl pencil.

Step 3: Smudge the kohl using a pencil/smudging brush

I have used Coastal Scents pointed crease brush for this step.

Step 4 : Apply black eye shadow on outer corner and crease.

I have applied the marked shade from Coastal Scents 88 original palette using MAC 217 brush. Since I am already using a blending brush to apply the product, I do not need to blend separately. This reduces time as well as makes it easier.

Step 5 : Intensify the black eye shadow by applying more product (optional)

Remove the excess black eye shadow from lower lash line using Q-tip. Also blot some of the excess from the outer corner to soften the look.

 

Step 7 : Apply highlighter on browbone and inner corner and finish with a coat of mascara

I have used MAC Naked pigment to highlight and Avon supercurlacious mascara. Also apply concealer to the under eye at this step.

    Your skin is looking flawlwss and its glowing! Sorry for goin off the track, can u suggest some good product to prevent pimples and fade blemishes? And will himalaya neem face pack solve the 2 problems?

      I have plenty of highlighter, hence the glow! 🙂 Himalaya neem face pack does help Shruthi but ultimately, if you have heavy scarring or pits, the only solution is a laser procedure. If its mild/moderate scarring then these remedies can help. I have also picked up a product from Vichy recently which is supposed to help. Once I’ve tried it out, I’ll review it and you can purchase it if its effective.
