Making Kohol (Traditional Eyeliner) - Ghor al Mazra'a, Jordan

Um Atallah shows us how her community makes kohol (traditional eyeliner) by burning a piece of cotton in olive oil and then letting it burn with a tin pan on top. The black smoke and ash collects on the pan at the top and this creates charcoal used for eyes. Really ingenious. Part of a Zikra Initiative visit in Ghor al Mazra'a in Jordan.
