Malaika Arora Khan Inspired Black Smokey Eye Tutorial

This look is inspired by Malaika Arora Khan’s look at Filmfare Awards. It might not be the same but that was what I was trying to achieve.

black brown smokey eye

Start by priming your eye lids. I am using MAC painterly Paint Pot. Apply some loose powder for smooth blending of eyeshadows.

With a black kajal trace a thick line on your upper lash line.

Smudge the kajal with a flat or blending brush.

Apply kajal on your waterline

On a pencil brush pick up matte chocolate brown eyeshadow

Sweep the matte brown eyeshadow on your lower lash line. Leave the inner corner of your eye.

Place the same matte brown eyeshadow ion your crease. This will give more definition to your eyes.

Place it on the inner corner of your eye. You may also apply the same eyeshadow just on inner corner of your eye lid. This step is optional because I didn’t see the highlighted inner corners in Malaika Arora’s look.

You are done. :)) And that’s your final look.

    1. hehehe…hav mailed to rati…u knw i feel maine kuch zyaada bol diya kal..its an ok haul..nthn gr8..i was super excited yesterday….

  11. superbbb our malaika urfff Rati g :yahoo: :yahoo: :bravo: :bravo: :clap: :clap: :clap: … luved it :-* :-* :heart: :heart: …ur hands cum sooo neat in defining the eyes & mixing the colors.. me still on trial methods :|…asked u b4 also.. i wanted to buy just the eye makeup brushes & found the ecotools kit.. whts ur say on tht?? me :waiting: :waiting:

    1. Eco tools brushes are fantastic. I have barely seen any bad reviews about it. The only thing I feel is that they dont have various useful brushes. I dont think pencil brush and blending brushes are apart of the kit. For me those are very important brushes. Why dont you pick up sigma eye makeup brush kit. Their brushes are really good.

      Thank you. :))

      1. sigma brushes cost a lot Rati.. cant spend sooo much on thm.. my hubby wud :spank: :spank: :hunterwali: :hunterwali: to me… 😆 😆 :lol2: :lol2:
        hav seen the ecotools set .. n read reviews about it tooo. pple too use their highlighting brush as the blender brush.. :toothygrin: :toothygrin: so me too thought of the same :whistle: :whistle: :joker: :joker: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

          1. try this site called, they hve free shipping ..bhumika and shalini have already got their i ordered ecotools from there…..lesse wen it reaches… :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :whistle: :waiting: :waiting: :waiting: :waiting:

  12. I love this look. I have never tried smudging kajal……..I’ll try this tomorrow for work & will tone it down of course.You look so pretty Rati 🙂

    1. For toning it down just apply the matte eyeshadow right above the kajal and smudge it a little. Apply compact powder on the rest of the lid and on brow bone. I myself do the toned down version a lot. Thank you. :))

      1. I used the same lakme kajal but it just would not smudge with a brush!!!It just stayed put! How did u manage to do it……I don’t prime my lids….so that could be the reason?

        1. Monika you would have to smudge it within seconds of applying it or else it would dry and it would be hard to smudge it. And yeah priming would have helped. May be dust some compact powder on lid and then try.. What brush did you use? the one i have used it quite sturdy so it put the right amount of pressure on lid while smudging.

        1. Actually I am not too sure because I am still not decided whether I want another Inglot palette or a coastal scents 88 shimmer palette :yelo: :yelo: :yelo:

  13. Rati has done it again 😀 :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho: :jaiho:
    lovely look perferctly smudged sexy smoky eye… wowwwwieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
    I tried last week and totally ruined my eyes.. ehehhehe
    loved it Rati… muahhhh
    :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:

  14. i like such intense eyes! its looking really nice….

    rati, i wanted to ask u … even i want coastal secnts pallete.. should i go for shimmer or matte.. does the matte pallettte have good number of satiny shades? like how much percnt…
    me scared coz my only matte eyeshadow that i have is mac carbon .. which i hate :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali: i dun like its texture… do all mattte shades fare like carbon? plzzz help me mke the decision… pweezzzz :waiting: :waiting: :waiting: :waiting:

    1. Oh my god I thought I was one of the super minority junta who dont like MAC Carbon eyeshadow. Coastal scents black eyeshadow is much much better then MAC Carbon. Actually both palettes are unique. I like to use matte eye shadows more so I picked this one up. but if you like shimmery eye shadows more, you can pick a shimmer one. And I promise I’ll do CS palette review tomorrow. I promised you long back but tomorrow I’ll do it pakka. 🙂

      1. ooo yeayyyy ur toooo sweet !! me gunna wait for the review :-* :-* :-* :-* :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:

        yeah i dont like carbon :handshake: :handshake: :handshake: :drunk:
        even my crappy chambor quads balck is better than carbon..!! 😐 😐 😐 😐

  15. You look amazing!!! It’s high time I try the Estee Lauder Sumptuous Volume mascara 🙂 Since we have to discard them every 3 months, I am kinda skeptical about spending $19 on it 🙁

    1. Appu, You can use the tube for 6 month after opening but from my experience you would have to pick up a new one after 4-5 month of usage. I also swipe my mascara brush time to time on a tissue . i read it somewhere that it keeps the mascara clean to a great extent. Cant say if that has helped but my mascaras stay in pretty good condition for 4-5 months.

  16. thanks rati for fulfilling my request :thanks: :thanks: :thanks:

    loved the look :inlove:

    i guess i need to learn the art of blending

    1. I don’t do it myself mainly because I have a little hooded eyes but I was copy catting no. :toothygrin: and on some people highlighting looks gorgeous.

      I mostly use compact powder or the chromagraphic pencil just to brighten up the brow bone area. 🙂

      1. on everyone highlighting looks gorgeous…! i love it too..
        but just whn i dont wanna look extra madeup.. i skip shimmery ones…
        yep i use compact powder for subtle highlighting too….

  17. Simply gorgeous…..its looking better than Malaika….sachchi :)) :)) :))
    And I loved your earrings….very pretty :yahoo:

  18. Very, very lovely indeed, i need to take lessons from you on blending, this look is really one of your best yet again, and you’re looking great, Rati. How have you been?
