How to Apply Kajal Thick and Bold Without Smudging

One great saying is “Eyes tells more than words could ever say” Really eyes sometimes say everything, there is no need for any words to describe something.

Eyes become more attractive and gorgeous when women apply kajal on it. Applying kajal on eyes is our Indian tradition which comes from decades and still now continuing. Women, especially Indian women love to apply kajal in there eyes to look her more pretty. We all know our Indian diva Kareena Kapoor Khan, who rocks her looks with thick, bold, heavy kajal. Personally, I love her heavy kohl look for my everyday eye makeup

Applying kajal perfectly on the eyes is not an easy task for many of us. This was initially a little bit intricated for me also. Later I learn some ways to simplify my struggle about applying kajal perfectly.

Here I am sharing some easy, simple and step by step process to solve your problem about how you apply kajal perfectly in your eyes.

Step by step tutorial How to Apply Kajal:

Step 1 : 

First, you choose a good kajal for eyes as per your choice, which is longlasting in your waterline. Who have watery eyes, they might face some problem with their kohl. Because their kajal or kohl smudges very quickly. That’s why need good quality kohl or kajal.

For your easy finding of a good quality kajal, I am sharing my preferences for you. You guys can try out this whatever you want.

  2. NYX Professional Makeup Jumbo Eye Pencil,

  4. Nykaa Eyem24x7 Kajal Eyeliner,
  5. Lakme Eyeconic Kajal,
  6. Wet n Wild Color Icon Kohl Liner Pencil 


Step 2 :

Start by applying the kajal perfectly on the waterline. At first, you place a finger of your hand under the eyes and pull the lower waterline slightly down. Then you place the kajal at your lower waterline and apply it. So that you can easily and perfectly apply the kajal on your lower waterline.

Apply the kajal start from your outer corner of the lower waterline to the inner corner of the waterline. Then follow the same step if you need. The thickness of your kajal/kohl on the lower lash line is as your choice.

Step 3 :

Take a small smudging brush and blend your kajal perfectly with a gentle hand on your lower lash line (just under your lower waterline). Because perfectly blend kajal look so good in the eyes and harsh line of kajal look so bad.

If you don’t have any smudging brush then don’t worry, you can use earbuds or just your fingertips gently on your lash line and smudge your kajal properly. But while using earbuds or your fingertips you have to be cautious that earbuds should have to be good quality or fingertips will have to be clean.

Step 4 :

After that, take some matte black eye shadow on your smudging brush/earbuds/fingertips and just gently dab it on your kohl on the lash line. This matte black eye shadow makes your kajal/kohl smudge-proof, sweatproof and long-lasting. Besides that, it also helps to make your kajal more intensify.

Step 5 :

Next close your eyes and place your kajal/kohl tips on the upper waterline (tightline) and apply kajal to make your eyes look bigger or, you pull your eyelids upside by the help of your finger and apply kajal on the upper waterline (tightline). Most of the time I am using second process to apply kajal on my tightline.

Step 6 :

Then take any compact or loose powder on the makeup sponge or on any fluffy powder brush and place it below the kajal on your lower lash line. Because powder soaks your sweat and makes your kajal sweat proof, that locks your kajal for longtime on the waterline. As a result, kajal on your eyes become smudge-proof and long-lasting.

To complete this look I am applying a few coats of mascara on my eye’s upper and lower lashes. It is up to your choice ou will use it or not. If yo u don’t want then you can skip mascara.

These are the step by step process which  I follow to make my kajal/kohl thick, bold and also smudge-proof, long-lasting and eyes look bigger and more attractive.
