Smokey Eyes

My newest cosmetic discovery:

To make eyeliner (kohl style, not pencil) take an almond, hold it over a flame till it catches light. Hold a teaspoon close over the almond's fire to catch the smoke. When there's a good black coating on the spoon, extinguish the almond. Leave the spoon to cool for a minute or two, then apply smoke with a finger. Magic.

I usually don't wear much black eyeliner as I'm quite fair and it's very strong on me, but I've been having so much fun with my excuse to burn things, and of course wearing my own homemade kohl, that I have a feeling I'll be wearing it a *lot* in the forseeable future.

Try it!
