Since Lakme has introduced the Eyeconic White Kajal (review HERE) into the Indian market making white liner accessible to everyone, I thought this post would be quite useful. White isn’t the most ‘natural’ color on the Indian skin but with these few tips, you can make it look really good!
If you’re wondering why White? White kajal brightens up the eyes, makes them look bigger, wider and more awake! So if you have small eyes, these tips can make your eyes bigger!
Step 1 : Apply the white liner in 3 areas – inner corner and tear duct area, lower waterline (where you normally wear kajal) and the browbone. For the inner corner area, smudge the liner a little using a brush or with a few dabs of your finger (be gentle!). For the browbone, smudge it completely till its completely sheered out. We only want a soft highlight in this area, no harsh lines.
Step 2 : Use a matte brown eye shadow along the lower lash line – just along the outer 2/3rd. Placing the dark shade right next to the white on the waterline gives it a little contrast. It also defines the shape of your eye.
Step 3 : Line your upper lash line with black liner. You could also use brown but I find black gives a more crisp look. This will also offset the brightness of the white and add definition to the shape of your eye.
[note color=”#FFE4C4″]You could of course create many looks with the White liner but this way is how I find the most flattering – Step 1 brightens up the eyes and Steps 2 and 3 ensure that the eyes are nicely defined and don’t look ‘naked’!
If you have a white liner, do try it out this way and let me know how it works for you! [/note]
