In reply to: Kohl for eyes (o/t....) posted by Juliette on October 16, 2002 at 20:01:17:

To Apply Kohl you need:

* A small stick which has both ends rounded off. Place this in olive
oil overnight so that it soaks into the wood. You may also use the
olive oil to clean your stick after use.

* If you wear contact lenses you must apply kohl BEFORE inserting
Dip tip of stick into kohl powder. Hold stick parallel to eye, and
starting at the inner point of the eye, run it between the eyelids
ACTUALLY TOUCHING THE EYE. (It doesn't hurt, really.) Re-powder stick
and repeat on the other side. You may also enhance your eyebrows, or
draw points off the end of your eyes.

You will feel when it is in the correct location, and you will have
your eyelids nicely black around the roots of the eyelashes with no
white skin showing. Kohl is water-proof but not "spit-proof", which
is a great atribute in hot climates. A tiny amount of power will last
you a couple of years, and it's much healthier for your eye than
commercial cosmetics which you wouldn't dare put into your eye.

Excess powder will gather at the corner of the eyes and you can
remove it. It is much less artificial looking than painting a line
outside the lids with commercial eyeliners; people will notice your
eyes, but they won't be quite sure why :)

Hope I was helpful with the above info...however you may check the
Kohl page on my site at the link below!
