Eyes can either make or break a look. Eyes if done well can give your makeup a whole new expression. Which is why, eye makeup is necessary and important than base makeup. Kajal and kohl were primarily used by Arab and Indians on daily basis but they were made naturally unlike the eye makeup that you get today. Natural kohl has much more benefits than just enhancing your eye beauty. Want to make your own natural kohl or kajal? Check the recipe below-
- Has no irritants or synthetic ingredients like commercial makeup products.
- Has a soothing and calming effect.
- Has lash growth benefits.
- Waterproof yet easy to remove with an oil-based cleanser or coconut oil.
- Perfect for making a smudged-out smokey eye
RECIPE FOR HOMEMADE KAJAL OR KOHL:
Things you need-
- Handful raw almonds
- Coconut oil/almond oil- as required
You need a handful almonds ore maybe more to make a decent amount of kohl or kajal. Grab a lighter and burn each almond one by one until fully black and burnt. If you want to make the process simpler, you can roast it in a saucepan or microwave as you normally would but for way longer until all the almonds are burnt and black. Now, grind the almonds until super fine and charcoal-like. Add in enough coconut oil to make a thick mixture and transfer to an easy to use jar. Press it in to make it look smooth and set. Use it on your waterline; smudge it out for a smokey eye look. Do not forget to powder your eye area before using this to avoid racoon eyes.
