I pretty much can’t leave my home without eyeliner everyday. If I do, I feel completely naked.
While I’m a eyeliner lovah, I keep peepers protected with clean, non-toxic eyeliner (who really wants toxins so close to the windows of their soul?). I use something that isn’t even eyeliner. I use some little magic pills that relieve your tummy of gas. Charcoal. For reals.
If you stroll your pharmacy aisles you’ll find bottles of activated charcoal sitting right next to good ol’ milk of magnesia. Activated charcoal comes in tablets and in capsules.
To get a sultry, soft smudge moisten a flat edged eye brush in water and dab on a charcoal tablet and line eye. To get a more defined and concentrated dark line (as Lindsey Wixson pictured above), get your favorite eyeliner brush really wet and swirl on the tablet or charcoal powder from an opened capsule (think of how you used watercolors when you were a kid) and line eyes.
Who knew that indigestion could be oh, so sexy and healthy? Leave it to Cleopatra.
