If you have watched Kurbaan and Three Idiots, you would have noticed the usage of blue liner on Kareena’s eyes. I super loved the blue liner and heavy kohls used in her looks. There were a few differences and similarities I found in both her looks. While Kurbaan had heavier lid makeup, in three idiots more focus was given on her lower lash line. Kareena wore glasses in 3 idiots. When you wear glasses most of your top eyelid makeup goes unnoticed because the glass frame hides the makeup. Through glasses your lower lashline is more visible so with glasses, one must focus on accentuating the lower lashline more than the upper one.
Also the Kurbaan eye makeup would look the best if you do with liquid liners, gel liners or pen-tip liners as opposed to pencil liners. 3 idiots makeup can very well be done with few strokes of pencil liners.
Sadly there are no close pics of Kareena in 3 idiots are available on net. I somehow managed to pick the following pic from the video. Can I patent it? 😛
In 3 idiots, the makeup was more smudged while in Kurban, her makeup had fine sharp outlines, flicks etc.
After watching both the movies, I was badly hunting for the exact blue eye liner. I looked for Maybelline gel liner but no stores had even heard of it. I found similar gel liner shades at MAC and Inglot but the price held me back.
Also, I wanted a liner that could smudge a bit and then smudge no more.
My hunt for the Kareena’s blue liner ended with Revlon’s Luxurious Color Kohl Liner in Midnight Blue (Rs 575). Not only I got the closest shade but also a creamy formula, a long stay liner, a little smudge without going overboard, and a matte finish. Exactly what I was looking for. I have fallen in love with it to bits and pieces.
I picked up a bit from Kurbaan and a bit from three idiots and recreated this look in just five easy steps. 😛
I had been very tired today hence the red eyes and ugly dark circles (didn’t bother to conceal my eyes).
5 Step Kareena Kapoor inspired makeup from Kurbaan and 3 idiots:
1. Apply foundation as base, then apply the brow colour from Maybelline Chai latte eyeshadow pallette all over the lid upto the browbone.
2. Line your eyelids with Lakme’s Bridal Sutra Eye Artist (use any black liquid liner that is glossy and shiney) keep it thicker at the outer edge of the eye and thinner at the inner corner of eye.
3. With Revlon’s Luxurious Color Kohl Liner in Midnight Blue go exactly over the black line that you created on your eyelid and lightly smudge the blue liner with a brush to soften the harsh edges.
5. With Lotus/ Himalaya Herbal Kajal line your waterline. Curl your lashes and apply two coats of Mascara.
The only tip would be to work with a fine sharpened eye pencil to get a fine look.
Done! This is exteremly wearable look. So happy! :)Ta ra la la la !
