If I were to wear only 1 makeup product before leaving home, I’d surely choose wearing a kajal (or kohl). I feel that since ‘eyes speak louder than words’, they should always be accentuated! These are a few tips on how a kajal needs to be applied :-
When using a kajal pencil, always start from the outer corner working inwards. Make sure to take short strokes & don’t shy away from pressing the pencil on the waterline. You are not going to hurt yourself while doing this 🙂 Kajal pencils are made keeping in mind the area that it needs to be used in & hence they are creamy & soft.
In case if you feel that your eyes are very watery & the regular kajal pencils do not stay in your eyes, you can use a gel liner with a brush inside your eyes too. Please try it a couple of times & in case if you feel that your eyes are getting red or teary, immediately stop using a liner. Switch over to kajal pencils.
Another way of making your kajal stay longer is by dipping your regular kajal in a black gel liner pot & then applying it directly to your waterline! This would make the black very intense & would make it smudge proof.
If you feel that even after doing this your kajal still smudges, apply a little bit of brown or black eye shadow just below the waterline, with even strokes, again beginning from the outside & stopping till 3/4th of the eye. The powder of the eye shadow will stick on to the creamy texture of the kajal & would not allow the kajal to budge from it’s place. Leave the inner corner bare or apply a light shimmery shade to make the eyes pop.
