You are looking at yourself in the mirror with your kajal pencil in your hand. You are nervously debating whether you should apply it this time. Because the last time you applied kajal in the usual thick and bold style it smudged everywhere, making you look like a panda. You aren’t sure whether you want to go through that issue again.
But don’t worry, dear reader-we got your back! Below are the tips and tricks you can follow to keep your kajal in place, without creating a disaster around your eyes.
Not all kajals are the same; many of their formulas do not last very long. Hence they end up smudging your eyes. Always use a kajal pencil that says words like “long-lasting” or “8 hours,” “16 hours” etc. Especially if you are wearing it all day. Kajals with these specifications will allow you to apply it thickly and boldly without any danger of smudging.
If your eyelids are oily, your kajal will be smudging in less than half an hour. To keep your kajal from moving, apply an eye primer or oil-free foundation/concealer. For those with oily skin, prime the skin and apply translucent powder to ensure no oil accumulates on the skin. If you are going to apply kajal, then it’s best to take this precaution.
Take out the time to apply your kajal. If you are in a hurry, it’s best to not apply it. Kajal applied carelessly has no chances of staying in place. Your eyes will look like a mess in a very short time and you may not be able to fix the damage. So always apply kajal slowly and steadily for maximum precision and neatness.
To keep your kajal for hours, apply black eyeshadow on top of it. Not only will the powder keep the kajal from spreading everywhere, but it will make your eyes look extra intense and bold.
If you have naturally wrinkly or puffy eyes and dark rings, it’s best to avoid applying bold kajal, particularly a bold, thick one. When smudged, it will only create an even bigger mess around your eyes. Not to mention, it will create unwanted attention to your under-eyes. It’s best to apply either a light-coloured liner on your waterline. Or a soft grey eyeshadow along your lower lash line to keep your eyes intense and bold.
Apply the kajal on the inner part of your upper lashes. Your eye look will be extra intense and will make it a showstopper. This is excellent for those who have small eyes or puffy/wrinkly under eyes.
