how to use kajal eyeliner

Aug 20, 2010

stila’s kajal eyeliner is a must-have among celebrity makeup artists and celebrities alike.  it seems as though they simply cannot get enough of this creamy eyeliner.   you might be wondering what is it about this eyeliner that makes it a must-have.  is it the silky smooth application?  or possibly the amazing, luxurious texture? perhaps it is the liner's rich pigment that sends many flocking to the stores?  whatever the reasoning, we wanted to show our stila fans some helpful application tips to ensure that you are making the most of this product.

in the slideshow below, the smoky eye look was created using onyx kajal liner, rocker eyeshadow trio, and the #20 brush.  follow these steps to recreate the look on your own.

step one: line the upper lashline with the kajal pencil.
step two: blend the line using the #20 brush.  buff the product into the crease and into the outside corner of the eye area.  leave center of the eye exposed.
step three:  add eyeshadow.  pop the bright grey color of the rocker trio on the center of the eyelid.  wrap the dark grey underneath the lower lashline.  blend the black shadow at the upper lashline to enhance the smoky look. 
step four: apply kajal liner to the inner rim of the eye.  blink the eyes to transfer the product to the upper rim of the eyes.
step five:  finish with a few coats of mascara.

a few things to consider about the kajal eyeliner…
  • it isn’t necessary to sharpen this pencil to a point!  sharpen it enough so that you can apply the product to your lashline and blend. 
  • the kajal liners are not meant for a defined line.  however, if you are looking for that type of look, try the smudge sticks or the stay all day liquid liner. 
  • lastly, many people have trouble keeping a smoky eye look in place throughout the day.  make sure to blend this pencil so that it stays put!  also, for prolonged application, apply pressed powder underneath the eyes to prevent smearing or use kitten smudge pot as a base.

  1. Hi, hope it's OK to contact you here. We would love to include your blog on our giveaway search engine: Giveaway Scout ( Have a look and if interested, use our online form to add your blog ( ). thanks, Josh

  2. I personally love using Kajal eyeliner in topaz on the lower watermark. I don't like the smokey eye at all, so I guess I'll just keep using topaz. This is such a creamy and soft product that my eyes don't get irritated or tugged.

  3. I love my Kajal liners!! I use the black for this purpose (although my favorite base is the black smudge pot)and it's the best for lining my upper rims. I have a Topaz for the inner rims and another for making my pigmented lips more toned down (they're pretty pink) and in a pinch for under my eyes.
