4 Different Types Of Homemade Kajal That You Must Try
Honestly, I swear by two rules in life:
One – A woman can never have too many shoes!
Two – Never leave home without kajal ;)
If you find yourself laughing in agreement with my second rule, chances are you too are in love with that stick of kohl in your makeup pouch and why not? Nothing instantly defines your pretty eyes better than a dash of kohl. Didn't have enough sleep last night? Kohl is the answer. Don't have time for a lavish eye-makeup routine? A little kohl does the trick.

Now many of you might have been tired swapping brands, trying to find your perfect kajal? I was too. That's when I decided to take my grandmother's help and make my own little pot of homemade kajal. Surprisingly, it worked! Homemade kajal provides a matte finish and does not smear easily. Plus, it's a shade of jet-black and results in beautiful peepers. Here are 5 different types of homemade kajal that you just cannot miss!
The Charcoal Kajal
Empty the contents of three charcoal capsules (easily available at a pharmacy) in a clean container and start adding coconut oil. Keep mixing it with a cotton bud and add the oil, one drop at a time till the desired consistency is achieved. It should neither be too runny, nor too thick.
The Almond Kajal
Pierce an almond with a metal pin and hold it over the flame of a candle. Hold an inverted spoon right above the almond so that the soot collects on it. Burn it for a few minutes and now mix the collected soot with a drop of coconut oil in an empty pot. Do this with a number of almonds for the required quantity.
The Eyeshadow Kajal
Take a little powdered eyeshadow in a clean pot, add a few drops of coconut oil and mix well with a cotton bud till it forms the desired consistency. Bonus Tip: Try eyeshadows of different colours to make different coloured kajals, if you're bored of the regular black ;)
The Traditional Kajal
Fill a diya with ghee and use two glasses to balance an inverted steel bowl over the flame of the diya. Once the diya uses up all the ghee, carefully transfer the collected soot from the bowl to a clean pot. Add a few drops of coconut oil and mix it with a cotton bud.
