How to get these trending smokey eye looks

The cult favourite smokey is a gift that kept giving at LFW Winter Festive 2019. It’s the undying love for the classic version that gave way to a plentitude of renditions that dazzled on the runway.

We’ve already broken down the gunmetal and bronzed variants and now we’re going to shed light on two more action-packed variations.

THE BLACK AND BROWN SMOKEY EYE

The ultimate trick for a black smokey with a brown tone as decoded by Lakmé Salon’s resident beauty expert Anupama Katyal: Use the Lakmé kajal along your upper lashline and blend it in over the lower half of the eyelid for a smokey effect. This forms a rich base owing to the strong intensity of the kajal. Top it off with a strong coating of metallic brown eyeshadow.  Blend in the shades evenly and flick at the outer corners of the lids for the cat eye. Leave the upper half of the lid undone with just a nude base application.

THE HOLOGRAPHIC EYE

Another fascinating version is the iridescent holo inspired eye also referred to as galaxy makeup. As high impact and tricky this prismatic trend seems it’s pretty simple to achieve through opposite metallic shades.

Pack on a metallic pink eyeshadow as base on your eyelid and along the lower lashline and tap the metallic blue on top or you can go the other way around if you feel like. Blend in the shades without too much consideration and letting the merging create a different glowing holo effect every time you use this technique which is in fact the beauty of this trend.

Finally, smoke out your outer V with another layer of pink or blue, again depending on your preference for a light or dark winged effect.
