A strong, smoky eye
Those of us who wear eye makeup every day know how labor-intensive and time-consuming applying it can be. I think I’ve found something that may help us shave some time off our daily routine.

Sormeh powder is a sooty black powder that has been used by women in Middle Eastern countries for centuries. L.A.-based makeup artist Mosha Katani has started selling the powder, packaging it in ruby glass bottles that come with a vial of powder and a brush.

Somewhat like henna, sormeh stays on the skin even after being washed. I lined my eyes last Thursday and even after washing and scrubbing my face, there was still a black line around my eyes for almost 3 days. It was smudgy, but just required a touch-up in the morning, so I didn’t walk out of the house looking like Courtney Love after a really bad night.

The application can get messy if you don’t have a super-stealth hand, but luckily a very little bit goes a very long way, creating a strong, intense black line on the eyelid.

If your holiday makeup plans include a super-smoky eye that doesn’t run or smudge, sormeh powder is just the thing to take you from a New Year’s Eve party to the next morning without the dreaded “day after” look.

Mosha loves doing makeup and shot W magazine recently and more bridal and children ads.
She is currently living in Laguna Niguel, CA. where she is also a blogger, beauty expert and esthetician.
She enjoys playing tennis, yoga, and is an avid swimmer. With all her activities she wanted an eyeliner that has staying power and feels good on her eyes and never needs washing off so she went back to her roots. In 2004 she created a natural kohl pigment called sormeh, made right here in the USA.

And there was born Sormeh by Mosha Katani, Queen of Kohl
