I watched Kurbaan today. More than the movie, I love Kareena’s eye makeup. It was so beautiful that I just wanted to watch her makeup done in more and more colours. As far as I remember, only two bold colours were used- Prussian blue and black.

The reason I loved her eye makeup was because I thought it was the easiest eye makeup to do in the world. πŸ˜€ I personally end up not doing eye makeup most of the time. Reasons being -too lazy or getting ready in a hush hush. Anyway, as soon as I reached home after the movie, I couldn’t wait to try the makeup. Voila! I did it. πŸ˜›

It was so easy peasy and I did it in less than 3 minutes.The look is pretty wearable and you can experiment a lot with the colours.

Another thing, I don’t get my eyebrows done. I just remove the extra hair but this time I did something funny. Story, some other time. πŸ˜›


Makeup used to create the look

Makeup used to create the look

  • Himalaya Kajal
  • Colorbar Time Plus Concealer stick in Coral
  • Colorbar Duo Mascara
  • Lakme Eyepot in Topaz
  • Lakme Nine to Five Defining Eyeliner in Jade


The steps are super easy

Step 1: Prep and prime your eyes with concealer.

Step 2: Put a wash of Topaz colour all over your eyelids upto your brow bone. You can use any bronze or golden cream based eye shadow. This is just to give a base to your lids and highlight your brow bone.

Step 3: Now come the eyeliner. With any coloured eyeliner (I used peacock green) draw a wide line on top of your upper lash line and then fit it up. Keep the line thickest in the middle and thinner towards the end. The line should look likeΒ  a small hill. Fill this empty outline very densely with the eyeliner. The brighter the better. Also, apply a little colour in the inner corner of your eyes. Do not smudge the lines. We are trying to create sharp lines.

Step 4: Apply Mascara and kajal.

Here’s how my eyes looked. I guess I am going to buy eye lineers in loads of colours now. Loved the look and loved it how easy it is to do.This look would look best with either bright colours. Use black and you have smoky eyes.

Gee! I am so glad. πŸ™‚

A few extras:

  1. You can smudge your kajal.
  2. If you are using a black eyeliner on your eyelids, you can create a wing with a liquid liner.
  3. You can heavily use mascara with this look
  4. Use a nudish lipstick because the heavy look on your eyes has to balance the overall look of your face.
  5. You can experiment this look with coloured contacts.
  6. For night outs/ parties, you can use glitter eye liner instead of pencil or liquid eyeliners.
  7. You can thicken the eyeliner according to the shape of your eyes.
  8. To make the look heavier, heavily kohl your lower waterline as well.

So ladies, what do you think?

Love and Hugs

Rati December 4, 2009 at 10:52 pm

Thanks Palak. Yes, I didn’t curl my lashes. I was in so hurry to try the look that I ended up skipping the step. Thanks for the suggestion and compliment, hun. πŸ™‚

Good job Rati…u do have beautiful eyes..v expressive. Man! yr lashes are so thick! Y r mine so teeny!! Arrrghh…I’m jealous πŸ˜€
So is the movie worth watching??



Rati December 5, 2009 at 1:29 am

Thank you. πŸ™‚ Cynthia, the credit for my eyelashes goes to my mom and olive oil. I remove my makeup with olive oil and I have seen my lashes thicken over a period of time. πŸ™‚

Movie was okayish. Kareena was looking pale and anemic. The story line resembles a bit to the Newyork but yes, a good one time watch.

Yes, it is very easy. I even tried the look with black liquid liner and loved it. Smokey eyes are no longer time taking and difficult now. πŸ™‚

tl me 1 thing eye liner iz best or kajal cz mera kazal sara fail jata hai dts y. by buddy………


Rati February 24, 2010 at 7:05 pm

Hi Simran,

You can try colorbar’s I define pencils they don’t smudge and they will stay on your eyes for long.


I know some tricks and tips that keep the kajal in place but if you are new to makeup, you might not be able to understand what I am saying. πŸ™

For undereye circles, use a good concealer. Revlon, Maybelline and Colorbar have good concealers. You can pick one for yourself that matches your skin tone. Ask the shop attendant to help you out with the selection. πŸ™‚ After you apply concealer, just set it with a compact or loose powder. This will keep your dark circles away and concealer poora din eyes ke neeche stay karega. πŸ™‚

Hope that helps. Which city are you from?
