Wa'alaikum salaam Applying kohl is indeed a sunnah of Rasulullah SAW. if she wears kohl while going out and this attracts the gaze of people on her , then she has to abstain from this. Her beauty is kept only for mahrams not for outsiders.

Isn't that what the people of Rebel Israel used to do? Book of Jeremiah, have you read it?

Jeremiah 4:30

What are you doing, you devastated one? Why dress yourself in scarlet and put on jewels of gold? Why highlight your eyes with makeup? You adorn yourself in vain. Your lovers despise you; they want to kill you.

In the English translation of the Nevi'im, the word "kohl" is used.

At Jook:That chapter speaks of God calling Israel by his promise- He exhorteth Judah to repentance - A grievous lamentation.

Yes, still even in the symbolic sense, it shows that amplifying the external adornment does not fix the heart. Fabricated beauty is not a representation of inner beauty.
