Meet the hashtag trick.

Turns out, hashtags are not only prevalent in the digital sphere, but also on our eyelids for a quick and easy smoked-out situation. Here’s what you need to know.

do a double hashtag with kajal
Using your favorite, creamiest kohl kajal or pencil eyeliner (we’re a fan of our Khol Kajal in 01 Black) sketch a double hashtag onto the outer corner of your eyelid. Make sure your lid is clean and dry beforehand.
smudge hashtag with eye shadow brush
Smudge it out with an eyeshadow brush until softly blended. To make your eyes pop and appear even bigger, apply inliner into your lower waterline. And just like that, you’re done!
