Tutorial Thursdays : Kareena Kapoor Heavy Kohl eye makeup Step-by-Step Picture Tutorial

 

Hey everyone!

Its Tutorial Thursday and today I’m doing a Kareena Kapoor inspired Heavy kohl eye makeup look which is her go-to look and has been seen on her on countless occasions. Many of you had requested a Kareena Kapoor look when I had done the Aishwarya Rai look last time so I decided to do this look today.

I hope you like it! Don’t forget to leave your comments below!

The look may not look *exactly* how it looks on her because her features are much different from mine and so is her skin tone! Her lower lash line has a much gentler curve(compared to mine) and her socket is much deeper. But I’ve tried to get as much of a likeness as possible! I always thought she wears jet black liner and kohl but on careful inspection, I realised just the kohl is jet black but the liner is a dark taupe-y brown and has a soft quality to it. Only the inner rims of the eyes are lined with an intense black which gives a dense appearance to her lashes as well.

Here are the products I’ve used for the eyes:

  1. NYX HD eye shadow base
  2. L’oreal Paris Infallible concealer (not pictured)
  3. MAC Naked Pigment
  4. Lakme Absolute kohl
  5. Bobbi Brown gel liner : Caviar Ink
  6. MAC Pro Long wear eye shadow : Legendary Black
  7. Bourjois Volume Glamour Max Mascara

Step-by-step Tutorial :

Step 1 : Prime the entire eye area including lower lash line, brow bone and inner corner.

Step 2 : Conceal using a stick concealer (it will help the pigment being used in the further steps to stick better). If you are worried about fall out, you can conceal the under eyes after finishing the look as well.

Step 3 : Blend the concealer well.

Step 4 : Apply a champagne-beige eye shadow all over the lid. I have used my favorite pigment MAC Naked for this step.

Step 5 : Tightline eyes with jet black kohl. Take the kohl all the way in to the inner tear duct to frame the eyes completely from the inner rims.

Step 6 : Apply a brownish black liner as close to the lids as possible to give a lush appearance to the lashes.

Step 7 : Wing out the liner at the outer corner using the liner making sure the wing merges with the lower lash line at the outer corner.

Step  8 : Apply a dark taupe brown eye shadow to the outer corner and a small section of the crease as shown. Kareena Kapoor’s eye makeup does not have the entire crease defined – only the outer corners and a small section of inner half of the crease  is defined. Apply the same eye shadow to the outer half of the lower lash line too.

Step 9 : Blend the brown eye shadow taking care not to spread it too much. Use a fluffy angled brush for this step instead of a round brush to prevent over blending. Using a thin angled brush, apply the brown eye shadow over the liner on the upper lash line to soften it slightly and wing it at the outer corner.

Step 10 : Darken the portion of the upper lash line closest to the lash by adding a little kohl on a liner brush. Clean up any excess in the outer corner or in the under eye area. Apply some loose powder/compact under the brow bone to give it a neat look. You can finish off at this step by applying 2 coats of volumizing mascara or darken the liner further like I have for a more dramatic effect!

The lips and cheeks :

Kareena Kapoor is really warm toned and uses a warm apricot blush which is applied on the apples of the cheeks with a rather heavy hand. She pairs this look generally with a warm nudedusty peach or coral lip color topped with some gloss.

I tried to get a similar effect but colors don’t appear as warm on me as I’m much cool toned compared to her and I ended up with a much pinker lip but I quite like this combo I’m wearing –

  1. luvly ankita, i wud try it wid my own stuff sum time, i luv such heavily kohled eyes :)))).. n thts blush is gorgeous on u 😉

  2. hey Ankita,
    happened to visit your blog during my net browsing session.
    I really liked the way you present all the details of each of the products. also your tuts are too good esp. for a person like me who has never been able to master the art of make up and i am 30+ as of now 🙁
    i need your guidance on one major issue…… i have lots of open pores. they give very bad look to my combination skin. can you help me in dealing with this issue.

    1. Hi Aru, thank u so much 🙂
      For open pores, you need to keep your skin really cleansed well and make sure to scrub twice a week. Unfortunately, there is nothing one can do to eliminate but by keeping the pores cleansed, one can minimize their appearance. Use a toner like Neutrogena Deep clean Blackhead removing toner after cleansing to tighten the pores. When you cleanse your face, make sure to splash lots of cold water after cleansing, this helps in minimizing their appearance as well.

  3. Sunbasque looks gorgeous on you Anki :-)) Its my fave blush too..

    And I totally loved the look…you have done a perfect job

  4. This look is super super sexy ankita.. Love it to the core.. just too good..!! btw I never get this cool toned/ warm toned funda! 🙁 I always thought Kareena is cool toned because of her pinkish white complexion..

    1. Thanks Ishita! Kareena has a lot of yellow undertones which is why she looks so good with warm shades rather than pinks or plums! Nude pinks with plummy tones look very muddy on her skin but nude warms look perfect!

  5. I luved the tute Ankita! I would request you a tute on Chitrangada Singh’s makeup! I love her skin and bronzed look a lot!

    1. Thanks Shivangi, I’ll try that though it would be a little difficult to go darker than 2 shades from my skin tone!

  6. Amazing look Ankita. As usual loveed it lots! Your eyes look so beautiful. I am looking forward for brown smokey eyes tutorial.

  7. Amazing. Its just perfect! 🙂
    kohl lined eyes suits you so much. I wish i could carry this look as beautifully1 Somehow i look very rude with kohl on both upper and lower lash line. :/

    1. In that case, try using brown on the lower lash line and use shadow instead of kohl! Glad u liked the look 🙂

  8. Hi Ankita! I came across your site randomnly but love it. Can you please start posting video tutorials esp for kareena looks. Also, can you please share some good brands on makeup brushes for face and eyes. Thanks so much
