Hi, I'm Alyssa Push, and I'm here as a makeup artist to tell you how to use a burnt cork for a makeup effect. What you do is you take a cork that is coming out of a wine bottle and you literally set it on fire and what this will do is char the actual cork itself to a black char and from here you can actually use it for special effects. The makeup cosmetic uses, what's actually bad about a burnt cork for a cosmetic use is that it creates it to be a carbon black, which is an carcinogen, so it's actually really unsafe to use it these days for makeup. So that's how you use a burnt cork for makeup, if you dare. I suggest not. I hope this helps you in figuring out how to do it and not do it. Thank you for not watching. I'm Alyssa Push, see you next time.
