There's a fine line between pulling off a sizzling smokey eye or looking like a panda. Now, we've all heard what online tutorials say- "It's all about the blending!" "Get this product for the best smokey eye!" & "Use the Kajal technique". However, after going through hundreds of sponsored tutorials online, you just can't seem to get that smokey eye right. And when you can't get the smokey eye right, the makeup that follows is bound to be disastrous.
So, for our latest edition of the #SSQuarantineSession, we asked bridal makeup artist, Simran Takkar to walk us through every step that goes into nailing the smokey eye makeup look.
