We spy with our little eye, something beginning with a dramatic eye. Dramatic Eyes set the theme for beauty at Day 1 of Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive 2019. Everything big and bold ranging from smokey blacks and greys to an unusualsunset palette made the cut for season’s must-try trends. So bring out your make-up pencils and take notes.
How to make your eyes pop with these dramatic eye looks
Switch up the usual yellow and orange sunset hues with a warm coral, purple and pink for a bolder-than-ever rendition of the trend. Go from lighter shades to darker ones when you follow this routine:
• Primer (LAKMÉ ABSOLUTE BLUR PERFECT PRIMER)
• Divide the eyes into three sections moving from the inner corner to the middle to the outer corner with the respective shades. (LAKMÉ 9TO5 EYE COLOR QUARTET EYE SHADOW - SILK ROUTE)
• Finish off with a mascara or eye-liner

If you’re in the mood for some experimentation try out the Gunmetal variation as done by NamrataSoni here for a modern spin on the classic smokey with a generous application of mascara (LAKMÉ ABSOLUTE FLUTTER SECRETS VOLUMIZING MASCARA – BLACK)

For all you smokey eye enthusiasts, the beloved trend is here to satiate. Go for the usual application of a dark eye-shadow on the eyelids and dark eyeliner (KAREENA KAPOOR KHAN LAKMÉ ABSOLUTE EYE DEFINER) smudged along the upper and lower lash lines; darker the better for a going-all-out look.
