4 Tips on How To Apply Kajal on Eyes

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.

  5. I know it’s late, but I just bought a white kajal pencil, and I was wondering how to use it, my eyes are pretty small and they’re in like an almond shape, so i wanna know who to apply it. Btw, great post♥

    • To make your small eyes look bigger, instead of using a black kajal use the white you have now. You might feel a little odd initially but you’ll get used to it with time. It’s the best way to make your eyes appear larger. Another way to use the pencil is by applying just a little bit at the inner tear duct area of the eye. Again this will give the illusion of bigger eyes. If you are a big fan of using black eye shadow or kajal on your eyes, use it below the waterline, i.e. the lower lashline. Smudge a little black shadow with the help of a Q-tip on the lower lashline and fill the waterline with white. It’ll look gorgeous.
