Off lately Kriti Sanon arrived at Zee Cine Awards 2023 in a signature Gaurav Gupta couture, in all black and shimmery separates and created a buzz with her stunning images in a bold look. With a slick, gel backed hair, Sanon’s makeup was kept minimal to highlight the intense dark inky eyes. For most of us, that one black eyeshadow on the corner of the palette always remains unearthed. Perhaps as it turns out, black is not that scary. With few simple steps and manageable products, you can recreate Kriti Sanon’s smoky eyes look from the red carpet and rock it at any party or event. Here’s how you can get the look:

e.l.f. Cosmetics Mattifying Putty Primer – Universal Sheer

The secret to a cloudy base like Sanon’s is a pore minimising primer. Start by prepping the skin using a matte putty primer by e.l.f.

MyGlamm Super Serum Foundation, INR 699

For a luminous finish, a serum infused foundation by MyGlamm shall do the trick and give your skin a glowy coverage.

Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Multi-Use Concealer, INR 699

Top the base with Maybelline’s concealer to even out the skin and create that seamless halo. Use the concealer minimally wherever required, like under the eyes or over spots or blemishes.

Charlotte Tilbury Cheek To Chic – Pillow Talk, INR 3,850

Sanon’s look is super clean with subtle nude blush on the cheeks. To achieve this dab some powder blush by Charlotte Tilbury in the shade pillow talk.

Smashbox Always On Cream To Matte Lipstick – Just Barely

Finally to finish off, glaze your high points of the face with some sweet sweeps of glitter by using Moira’s highlighter.


Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick – Heather Steel, INR 3,150

Kicking off the colossal eye makeup, the deep-brown toned, cream stick eyeshadow by Bobbi Brown is ideal to create a dark base on the lids. Simply glide few strokes and blend with fingers.

M.A.C In Extreme Dimension 24hr Kajal Eye Liner, INR 675

For some depth and drama, use the kajal eye liner over the upper eye lids and gently blend using a brush to create a smoky effect. Use the pencil to rim the lower lashline and smudge it softly using a blending brush.

Manish Malhotra Mascara, INR 595

Coat the lashes with a super black mascara by Manish Malhotra to complete the eye look, the black diffused eye look.

PAC SuperBrowww Cream, INR 645

Defined eyebrows are a game changer and you’ll be needing a brow cream to precisely shape the arches. Using a clear gel and spoolie, brush out the brow hair and set them in place for a more organic look.


Smashbox Always On Cream To Matte Lipstick – Just Barely, INR 2,100

The balmy nude lips perfectly balance out Sanon’s makeup. Use a creamy matte lipstick in a pink nude shade and glaze some clear gloss if you love a juicy pout.
