Lancome artist gave the step and this is what he did

The classic smokey eye has come a long way from black and grey.For the warmer months, a coloured version is the fashion-forward the way to, and we love how pink is this Spring’s pretty pick. To get you started, teamed up with Lancome Head Makeup Artist, Stafford Braganza who broke it down to five easy steps – easy as pie!

Step 1: After prepping your eye with concealer and a dust of translucent powder, trace your upper lash line with a black eyeliner pencil. With a flat brush smudge the color for a softer look. We love the Lancome Le Crayon Khol for its soft texture and ease of use.

Step 2: Go over your waterline with the black eyeliner so your eyes look defined. A gel eyeliner works best for all day wear.

Step 3: With a fluffy blending brush, apply a black eye shadow along the outer half of your eye blending into your eye socket. Start off with a very little amount of color on the outer corner of your eye moving inwards along your crease, so the density of color reduces half way in. Remember not to pull it all the way into the inner corner or you risk creating a circle around your eye.

Step 4: Using your clean finger gently tap a pink satin or shimmer shadow onto your eyelid. Blend it into the black shadow along moving upwards and outwards.

Step 5 : Finish off with a healthy coating of mascara for long lush lashes. recommends the Lancome Virtuose Black Carat Mascara for dramatic lashes that pair very well with a smokey eye look.(From Vogue India website)

how to do smokey eye makeup


Simple and easy:)



      • a very few in the whole office and none around me… i think i m one of those rare form of girls in the office who wear colored liner…. initially i was in the majority population too… but once started using i just love colors on my eyes 😀 :inlove:
        may be HR girls do eye make up but they are in different premise few blocks away from our building

    • Anks it was pretty easy…just three eyeshadows and some blending though whole makeup did take lot of time 😛
      how much time do u spend in doing your makeup?

      • That depends on the time I have…. these days I use the Lotus sunblock that gives coverage as well. So I top it off with compact and apply lipbalm if i have no time… if i have time, i add kajal, lipstick, blush, liner… in that order… again depends on the time 🙂 i skip eye shadows since i am pathetic at that… only if i am heading to a party or something, I’ll opt for a foundation/ base eye shadow / highlighter… that takes ages!!!

        what abt you, how long do you take?

        • everything depends on time..most of the time i skip foundation…just use foundation, compact, blush and a eyeliner if it is a black eyeliner i smudge it to give a smokey eye makeup look ..and if not smokey eyes then a dark lipstick works:)
