Sometimes getting makeup off is a lot harder than it was putting it on. So I created a wonderful DIY waterproof eye makeup remover that not only removes eyeshadow, mascara and eyeliner, but also conditions lashes each and every time you use it! (Psst. It also works great at removing my waterproof intense pigmented lip color!)
To use this DIY waterproof eye makeup remover, simply apply a generous amount to closed lids, massage gently then wipe with a washcloth or a tissue. Repeat as needed until all traces of makeup is gone. You can also dab just a bit of this directly onto lashes before applying mascara to help keep them separated and clump free! Now for the recipe. Which incidentally is all natural. Yay!
DIY Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover
Using a digital scale weigh out the stearic acid and beeswax into a glass Pyrex measuring cup and heat at reduced power in the microwave until melted. (Alternately you may use a double boiler.) Once melted weigh out and stir in the shea butter. Mix until shea butter melts completely. You can reheat the ingredients if needed.
Now weigh out the oils and stir into the melted ingredients. Mix well. Allow to thicken – you can speed this up by popping it in the fridge or freezer – then stir in the aloe vera gel.
Spoon into a 2 oz. glass or plastic container and then treat your lashes to some serious love as needed.
