When the fire of my eyeliner is just hot khols, after a night of so much fun, I crashed without removing my eyeliner, my brain is like “o my gosh smoldering , I look so good.” Then my brain is like why can’t I look this good when I do my make up fresh?!? Well I have learned the trick, the technique. This post is going to be a tutorial on how to do the basic smoldering eye.
You will need:
Kajal type eyeliner.
The 2 currently on my make up bag are MAC technakhol waterproof kajal or Rimmel London scandal eyes waterproof gel pencil kajal eyeliner.
smudge Tip or cotton swab
Optional: eyeshadow primer
I start my look with a clean face and bare eyelids. Normally I would recommend an eyeshadow primer,but I am feeding my skin with avocado oil today. But I will use that oil to ease smudging and to our advantage. Please note if you are going to amplify this look you’ll want primer, but if you want that soft I woke up born with it look, you can skip it.
Step 1: Line your eyes, by following the natural shape of the eye . I do recommend lining into the lash line as well.
Step 2: Take the smudge tip or cotton swab and start smudging that black line. Personally am in the market for a smudge tip, meanwhile, I use a cotton swab and with tiny tight circular motions I smudge and diffuse the harsh black line.
It is desired that the kajal will gently stain your eyelid, creating naturally lined and deep-set eyes kind of look.
Kajals and khols are best for smudging and to can make your own, if you have an ancient recipe.
Step 3: Add mascara
That’s it. Eyes done. Now you can start your flawless foundation routine, spend hours trying to decide if falsies are necessary or just head to the kitchen for food.
Now that you have the basic smoldering eye down, you can amplify the look by adding smoking eyeshadow and falsies for glam. I like keeping it basic on lazy days for an anytime, any where kind of application.
Tip: To additional amplify this look smudge your lower line for definite smoking drama.
