Soft Khaki Plum Eye Makeup Look

Khaki Plum Eye Makeup Look

Hello dear IMBB beauties,

I have been away from IMBB for too long, and was thoroughly depressed about the same. Now I am back with what I am most likely to be doing on IMBB- yes, an eye makeup tute… πŸ˜€

So here’s a simple look I do a lot for day time, and it has fetched me a few compliments at the work place too.

So here, we go.
I have used the following things:

  • Urban Decay Primer Potion
  • Bourjois Khol and Contour eye pencil in Khaki
  • NYX mono eye shadow in Walnut Bronze (Gift from Ki.. :D)
  • MAC Shroom eye shadow for brow bone
  • A little compact to blend everything together.

It’s a very simple and straight forward tute.
Here’s me without any makeup.

1. I have started with priming my lids. I have used UDPP. As you will notice it dries a little patchy, so it’d be a good idea to follow it up with some loose powder.


2. Now draw a thick line with a khaki pencil on the upper lash line. Like this:

3. Wing it out a little bit and bring the line down halfway through the lower lash line.


4. Now smudge the line with a blending brush. Smudging with your finger can take the colour everywhere. A blending brush will smudge it precisely.


5. Apply the soft plum/brown/pink shadow from the inner corner to meet the smudged liner.


6. Highlight the brow bone. I am using MAC shroom, in very little quantity. With a blending brush, blend all the colours together with a little compact/loose powder.
7. I have skipped black liquid liner here. You can draw a thin line close to the lashes if you want. I am using loads of mascara, which is what I like at day time, instead of liner.
8. This is the finished look.

9. Complete the look with your favourite lipstick and a touch of bronzer on the cheeks.

  4. This is so very soft and natural – very nice casual look :inlove:

    You are so beautiful… when I look at this pictures I want to come to India and do a makeup for you… no, five or six looks are rapidly switching on my mind and I would like to do them all πŸ˜€ :-* :-* :-*

    1. No tatjan is coming to me first… Hey Tatjan, do some tutes if you can.. So at least i could try them out till you actually come here.. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

            1. I guess I would do a tour than: Delhi, Bangalore, Mumbai and…. let me think.. would love to see Darjeeling again (been there 23 yrs ago); donΒ΄t have to go to Goa but would like to see Sri Lanka as well.

              But you Ladies have to show me your nice country – I mean it would be funny to be asked:
              And, did you like it? What places have you been? Tell us about! when I come back and me answering: Well, did not see anything, was doing Make-Up the whole time πŸ˜†

  5. So so sooooooooooooooo beautiful!!!! :-* :-* :-* …Me staring staring…. :hypnotized: :hypnotized: :hypnotized: :hypnotized: People are so good looking here!! ……And know how to look even better every time!! :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: Me also want to do that!! 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐

    1. Cali… You calling me good looking??? 😯 😯 You are so beautiful.. I am an ugly duckling… Slapping on colours to be presentable…

  6. Mrun…..Beautifuuuuuuulllll :beauty: :beauty: :beauty: :beauty: :beauty: and luks so easy peasy….but m sure wil not b able to do it :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly:

  7. beautiful! And the way you smudge the liner… :worship: :worship: :worship:
    I once tried it.. after seeing one of your prev tuts.. all the colour came onto my fingers and nothing left on the eyelid!! πŸ™ patience patience.. me shall try again, me not giving up ..especially after seeing the gorgeous effects it can produce!

    1. Er.. I have never seen any such thing happening.. :idk: :idk: MAybe next time try a soft blending brush instead of fingers for smudging..

      Many women like to use rubbewr sponge to smudge liner.. But i find it too harsh..

      And thank you for the lovely comments dear.. :-* :-*

    1. Thanks Jahnavi.. :-* :-* :-*

      The mascara is Maybelline Colossal Volume Express… Average one… It’s the lash curling that really opens up the eyes.. At least for me..

    1. Cali I saw the video … I died laughing like OMG ….. do the cobra to the left do the cobra to the right … cobra cobra :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

  8. I love all your tutorial…because they are all so wearable….no exception to this one….loved it :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* Mrun

  9. Bourjois Khol and Contour eye pencil in Khaki ….is so beautiful…..would Chambor contour pencil give the same effect….. ?:-) πŸ˜• ?:-)

    1. Thanks Jomol… Love you too.. :-* :-* :-*

      And yeah, Chambor pencils are pretty creamy too.. So they should work just as well,,,

  10. wow…this is such pretty combination….love the technique….so simple and classy :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes:
    And I loved you lipstick shade too :-* :-*

  11. Hey Mrunmayee – this look is gorgeous on you. Just one question: Do you use a lot of UDPP? I have similar skin tone and it dries to a slight sheen for me. I apply a few dots with the wand and then I blend it gently.

    1. Thanks Feiran..

      I too use UDPP as you said.. But I don’t know why it dries a little patchy and goes streaky on me.. No sheen.. :-(( :-((
