  1. But I can never sport such dramatic makeup but u look good with this kinda makeup! BTW r u using the La roche thermal water? hows it?

  2. Great Eye makeup Ankita. I am really scared to use kohl on my waterline. I Feel it makes my eyes look bigger.And eventually I end up with racoon eyes. Any suggestions ?

    1. Hi Manasi, firstly kohl makes eyes look smaller, it does draw more attention to the eyes, but it definitely makes them look more filled up and smaller. Regarding the smudging, you need to use a kohl that does not smudge so much and just powder your under eye area well. You can also gently pat some black/brown eye shadow over the applied kohl, this sets it and delays the smudging. Hope this is helpful 🙂

      1. firstly kohl makes eyes look smaller>> Really?
        It does draw more attention to the eyes>>May be I meant the attention. I really do not like that look of mine with kohl on the waterline. But will sure try your tips.Wanna try that smoky eye look. Thanks again 🙂

        1. You’re welcome 🙂 The powdering tip will definitely prevent the smudging. Do try smokey eyes and let me know how it turns out!
