How to Apply Kajal Perfectly!

Kajal is a woman’s best friend, especially because it beautifies the eyes instantly, while lighting up the face. Besides being a cosmetic product, you should know that it has some medical properties, which help in preventing eye ailments. 

The Kajal, or in the local language known as surma, is said to brighten the overall look of your dressing!!! The Indians are known to be a large group of kajal users as it goes more with traditional wear. 

Here are few of the basic steps that will help you to apply kajal properly:


  • Clean the eye area including the eyelashes with a mild cleanser and water. For those who have a dry skin, moisturise the eye area well, and dab some looser powder to avoid the oiliness. 
  • Gently pull down the lower eyelid so that the inner lid line or waterline is exposed. 
  • Use a kajal pencil that is not too sharp and start lining from the inner corner of the eye up to the outer end. If you are not having a steady hand, take some kajal on your fingertip and drag it smoothly along the waterline. 
  • However, make sure that your hands are washed properly, as there are possible chances of infection. If you want a soft smokey effect, you can apply a thick kajal line on the lower rim and smudge off the line with an eye shadow brush or smudger. 
  • For the upper eyelid, close the eye and line the upper lid smoothly, starting from the inner corner up to the outer corner of the eye, gradually increasing thickness. 
  • For weddings you can deck your eyes up a little more by playing with different colour pencils, eyeshadows and false eyelashes. 
  • You also could boost eye lash volume by applying a generous amount of mascara, which in turn will give you more of the ‘desi’ look.

This will also help you brighten and lighten up your eyes, and possibly giving an option to make your small eyes appear bigger.


Kajal gets you a sexy mysterious look, be it daytime or evening, do not forget to apply kajal always on your eyes, and look gorgeous!
