3. Kajal on the eyes

A smoky eye makeup made with kajal is even more gorgeous in brunette girls who possess a piercing gaze. There are two ways to create this look: you can make an elongated horizontal design that makes the eyes even more important, that is, the protagonists of the face, or you can opt for a more delicate and classic style combined with a pink or nude lipstick. Our advice is to find a kajal or a quality pencil that is able to create your look without smudging or staining the skin too much. So a kajal from a renowned brand like Collistar - buy the kajal on offer at € 11.30 (35% discount) - or an automatic pencil from a reliable brand like Rimmel - buy the automatic pencil on offer on Amazon for 5.90 € (34% discount) - are optimal for reproducing this style.

5. Smoky eyes in shades of blue

A blue-toned makeup is mainly used to contrast the warm colors of your face and hair, so even in this case we recommend that you make the eyes as the protagonists of the face. This look is to be avoided, however, in girls with blue eyes, because it can make everything very monochromatic. Also avoid lipsticks with strong colors, because the point of light is already abundant on the eyes! We recommend a compact eyeshadow palette with different shades of blue such as the Color Riche palette by L "Oréal Paris for € 12.23 on Amazon.

For very feminine girls who like a light makeup suitable for every day, a delicate cat eye made with a quality eyeliner and a beautiful and lively red lipstick is definitely the perfect choice. In this case, the skin must be made perfectly, so a quality primer combined with a long-lasting foundation are the perfect mix to have a flawless look! We recommend Revlon's best-selling Photoready Perfecting primer available on Amazon for € 8.90 and Amazon's top-of-the-range foundation with a rating of 4 out of 5 stars: Maybelline New York Super Stay liquid foundation on offer for € 9.94.
