HOW TO: Bold Kohl in 2 Minutes

Kohl has been such an essential for me… especially a few years back when it used to be the only makeup I would wear. I loved trying various ways of application; not only then, but today too I like to experiment around with various techniques and looks. Sometimes I like my kohl bold and striking, other times a subtle stroke gravitates me.

My current kohl routine is for bold look lovers at the same time its soft and not too harsh. The tutorial below will guide you through.

Step 1

Line the waterline and the lower lash line with kohl. I prefer using a pencil that has a creamy texture and is super pigmented. Quite liking the Urban Decay 24X7 Glide-On pencils.

Step 2

Use a clean thin eyeshadow brush to blend out the edges, this gives a softer look. You could stop right here, but I fear this step alone may not promise a smudge-free and long-lasting wear… That’s why I always make sure to add in step 3.

Step 3

You could use an eyeshadow of same color as your kohl or could get a little creative and opt for a different shade and use it to further blend out the kohl. This also helps set the product in place.
