Anushka Sharma Inspired Eye Makeup Look Tutorial:
Follow the below steps to get that mesmerizing Anushka Sharma inspired eye makeup look:
Like all eye makeup tutorials, we should start the eye makeup with gently patting some eye cream to the under eye area. It will hydrate and relieve the dryness as dry skin will leave makeup patchy. Apply and blend the cream completely with a light hand until it is fully absorbed into the skin. People with pigmented eyelids, would have to use an orange or peach colored corrector prior to layering of the concealer to get a flawless finish. Set the concealer with a translucent or compact powder to prevent creasing of the cream applied.
Now, pick a medium matte brown eyeshadow and apply it to the eye socket or crease area of your eyes. This medium brown eyeshadow can be just 2 or 3 shades darker than your natural skin tone as Anushka wears only a medium brown eyeshadow. Load the eyeshadow in a fluffy blending brush. With a wind shield wiper motion, softly blend the color into the crease.
Now apply a creamy black eyeshadow or a black kajal base to the entire eyelid area. Restrict the application above the natural crease area of your eyes. The application of the cream base in this step needn’t be very neat as we will smudge it later to create a smokey look.
Pick a rounded smudger or pencil type brush to softly blend the rough edges of the creamy kajal base applied in the earlier step. Now, pick a matte black eyeshadow and apply it to the center of your eyelid area. You should remember to apply this eyeshadow above the smudged-out creamy base. Gently pat the black eyeshadow and avoid sweeping motion to achieve maximum color pay off.
Now pick a darker matte brown eyeshadow and apply it over the crease area. This step will create a transition from the dark matte black to the medium brown eyeshadow applied earlier.
Blending, blending and blending ─ that’s what this whole step is about. Pull out a clean fluffy blending brush and create circular motions over the darker brown eyeshadow applied in the previous step. Blend all the eyeshadows for a seamless finish. You should remember to achieve a soft transition of colors from black, dark brown to medium brown. Then, pick a shimmery or matte cream eyeshadow. Now apply the eyeshadow to the brow bone area of your eyes to lift your eyebrows.
Apply the same black kajal to the lower waterline of your eyes. Then, use the same pencil brush to gently blend out the kajal to the lower lash line of your eyes. It will create a soft balanced smokey look. Now pick the same matte black eyeshadow and set the kajal formula to prevent the creasing.
Then, curl your eyelashes and apply lots of mascara to create an illusion of thicker and fuller eyelashes. If you love intense and dramatic looks, you can add false eyelashes.
Not just Anushka, any woman can look amazing with this eye makeup!
