At Glamcheck we talk about how to create this look yourself. The smokey makeup is an essential for the evening and doing it right can add great drama to your look and catapult even an ordinary dress.

The base

For any good look and make-up, as we always point out – the perfect base is essential.

  • Use a cream based foundation on your face and neck for an even skin tone. If necessary apply concealer to rectify blemishes.
  • Apply the right blusher to your cheekbones. If you are fair use a true pink or baby pink. If dusky like Sonakshi, peach and warmer shades of pink will be right. If even darker, go for a plumy hue.

The Lips

  • Moisturize your lips well with a balm.
  • Choose a matt lip color, in the right natural hue for your skin tone. As a general rule for choosing the natural lip color, observe what the true color of your lips is and only go a few hues lighter in your lipstick.

The Eyes

Nicely arched and tweaked eyebrows are a must for this look, as all the attention is going to be on the eyes.

  • Apply a primer first if you are using an eye shadow powder. It will help it to stay.
  • Start with your upper lashline and apply black eyeliner. Use the same eye liner at the lower lashline too, instead of kohl as it is darker and richer.
  • Highlight your brow bone with a color close to your skin tone first. This would demarcate the area.
  • Start at inner lid with a plumy black and use the color sparingly, the skin should slightly be visible underneath.
  • As you progress towards the middle, mix a little black and make it darkest towards the outer corner. Define the outer corner with an angled stroke.
  • Blend with your fingers or the brush for more precise results.
  • Highlight the inner corners of the eyes with a hint of sparkly silver.
  • Finish with a few coats of mascara on your lashes.
