Beauty DIY for Homemade DIY Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover and Lash Conditioner

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!

Ingredients:

.25 oz. rosehip seed oil
.5 oz. grapeseed oil
.5 oz. apricot kernel oil
.25 oz. stearic acid
.15 oz. aloe vera gel
.1 oz. beeswax
.2 oz. shea butter

Directions:

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.

Maturing skin? Apply this product under and around eyes to help deter those fine lines and wrinkles that come with age.

I’m always on the prowl for fabulous new bath and beauty products. One of my favorite things to try – aside of all the lovely handmade soaps from fellow soapmakers like myself – is makeup! I’m especially addicted to waterproof mascara and long wearing eyeliner and shadows. This, of course, means I need a makeup remover to get back to a fresh face.

Makeup removers, however, can be rather expensive. I’m still in awe of how much cosmetic prices have increased since I first started wearing makeup at 13 in the height of hair band fame and blue eyeshadow. So I was pretty excited to learn that I could make my own makeup remover with just two ingredients – ones I generally have on hand all of the time. Just visit the Sunnie Brook Beauty Blog to find out how to make your own diy makeup remover (pictured) using extra virgin olive oil and aloe vera juice. I’m interested in seeing how this would work with jojoba oil as well.

Don’t forget to try you hand at making my homemade cream eyeshadow as well! It’s  free of any scary chemicals or preservatives and be customized to create your favorite shades one jar at a time! And for lips, try my extra luxurious, moisture rich vegan lip gloss recipe.

I really like the idea of natural cosmetics, however, I like to use a liquid base rather than a powdered one and then follow with a loose translucent powder to finish my look. I have been using Maybelline’s Instant Age Rewind The Eraser Treatment Makeup Foundation. I like that it’s not a heavy foundation and that it also moisturizes just enough that I don’t need to apply a separate moisturizer underneath my foundation. It provides a light coverage that just evens out my skin tone and has an SPF18. I wasn’t aware that there were indie cosmetic companies offering alternatives for liquid foundations until I stumbled across Green Beauty Cosmetics.
Green Beauty Cosmetics is an all natural, chemical free, non-toxic, green cosmetics line that gives health conscious women an alternative to toxic skin care products. Their products contain no genetically modified substances, parabens, petro chemicals, phthalates, synthetic dyes, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, or triclosan. All products are preserved with an ECOCERT certified corn derived preservative and ECOCERT certified plant based emulsifiers. These products are not tested on animals and you receive a free sample with every order.

I of course wanted to try the Tinted Moisturizer for Light Skin for my own fair skin so I purchased the sample size for $3. The purpose of this tinted moisturizer is to even out skin tone while providing sheer coverage and just a hint of natural color. I am happy to say that this product produced the intended results. The product is thinner than I expected, but it goes on quite easily and absorbs quickly. You can add additional product for a slightly darker tone. It  also provides the perfect amount of moisture without going overboard and it smells amazing. The scent is very herbal and reminds me of lavender and chamomile. While it does not have a stated SPF it does contain titanium dioxide, which is known for it’s natural SPF. However, if you are concerned about the sun, you may want to apply a sunscreen underneath this moisturizer or wear a loose powder on top that offers SPF coverage. As far as pricing for Green Beauty Cosmetic’s Tinted Moisturizer, I found similar that it is quite similar to that of Maybelline’s Foundation. 1oz. of Green Beauty Cosmetic’s Tinted Moisturizer is $19.95 while about half that amount – .68oz. – of Maybelline’s Instant Age Rewind runs $9.99 at discount stores like Target. Additionally, if you buy a sample sized product, Green Beauty Cosmetics will refund the cost of your samples when your buy their full sized bottles.

In addition to the tinted moisturizer I received from Green Beauty Cosmetics, I also received a free sample of Eye Makeup Remover for Waterproof Mascara. While I hadn’t specifically requested a sample, I am so glad it was sent to me. I have had a heck of a time getting my waterproof mascara off lately. Often times I’m applying mascara over top of mascara that I couldn’t get completely off from the day before. This product worked perfectly at solving my this issue. I applied a somewhat generous amount to my lashes with my eyes closed, rubbed back and forth gently, then wiped clean with a wet washcloth. And voila! No more mascara. And better yet, it didn’t irritate my eyes which are often plagued by seasonal allergies. This is a must have if you’re looking for a natural alternative to your eye makeup remover.
