How to create the arty kajal look
Sometimes a chunky crayon is all you need to nail a fierce arty beauty look.
Nourishing Primer Oil
All-Day Liquid Foundation (shade: Alabaster)
Illuminating Drops (shade: Dawnlight)
Tinted Eye Brow Gel (shade: Espresso)
Crayon Kohl (shade: Jet Black)
High & Mighty Mascara (shade: Black)
Do-It-All Stick (shade: Rose Coral)
Lip Shine (shade: All Clear)
Foundation and Concealer Brush
A minimal beauty look craves the perfect base. Start with massaging your face with the Nourishing Primer Oil using your fingertips, then apply the All-Day Liquid Foundation with the Foundation and Concealer Brush. Use the Illuminating Drops in Dawnlight on your cheek bones, chin, bridge of your nose and your cupid’s bow for a natural glow.
Let’s get started on the main act: the arty smoky eye. The effect you’re aiming at is raw and organic, so honestly – it’s even better if you’re a kajal novice. For once smudgy edges and natural creases are okay!
Use the Crayon Kohl eyeliner pen in Jet Black and make a V-shape in the outer edge of your eyelid, tracing it up towards the eye crease onto the outer lid. And you’re done!
Complete the look with a couple of layers of the High and Mighty Mascara, add some Tinted Eye Brow Gel to get a natural brushed brow effect and gently brush the Do-It-All Stick in Rose Coral on your cheeks and lips. The Lip Shine (shade: All Clear) will be the perfect finishing touch.
