How to Apply Kajal

Kajal is applied with a fingertip on the inner rim of the lower eyelid and sometimes on the upper lid as well. Open your eyes and apply the kajal inside the eye, next to the lower lash line.

When applied on the lower inner rim of the eye it can be started from the innermost corner or from the middle to the outer corner of the eye. Kajal is usually put on the lower rim of the eyes for the soft look.

Defining the yes well with kajal:

If eye liner is applied over the kajal put on lower rim, it defines the eyes very well.

Length of applying kajal

Choose the length which suits you. You may wear kajal along the full length of the eye or even keep it shorter-3/4, 1/2 or 11/4 of the eye.


To make small eyes look bigger put only 1/2 length-starting from middle to the outer corner of eye
