Introduction: Homemade Eyeliner

Have you ever wondered what ingredients are in your makeup? Or that those ingredients can be toxic to your health? Here is how you can make your own eyeliner for cheap! It is all natural, naturally colored and easy to remove.

What you will need:

(This recipe makes 10 eyeliners – adjust as needed)

1. Containers

2. Mason jar

3. 1/4 ounce beeswax

4. 1 ounce coconut oil

5. 20 activated charcoal capsules

6. Optional: 5 drops of Therapeutic Grade Lavender Essential Oil

Directions:

Open activated charcoal capsules and pour charcoal into the mason jar. Add the coconut oil and beeswax into the mason jar and microwave for about 1-2 minutes or until melted but not scolding hot. You can also add the mason jar to a pot of boiling water to melt the ingredients as a healthier method. I make sure to use a mason jar designated to making eye liner since the excess beeswax will stick and I do not recommend pouring it down your sink. Next, add the essential oils and swirl until well mixed. Add to your containers and let it harden sitting out or in the fridge.

    I tried this and it was too waxy and would only draw on my arm (when pressed hard). I tried again after multiplying the oil and the amount of charcoal capsules by 1.5 and it still wouldn't draw on the upper or lower eyelid.
    Does anyone have a remedy for this recipe? Has anyone else tried this recipe with any success?

    This is a really great idea.cant wzit to use it. I tried it just now But the activated charcoal hasnt disolved so its all gritty without turning black color..pls explain what have i done wrong?

    could you use something else instead of beeswax

    could you use something else instead of beeswax

    is the essential oil for a pretty smell or does it serve another purpose?

    If I am right, lavender is a natural antibiotic. Stop any possible mold.

    I use therapeutic grade lavender essential oil to support the skin. I definitely see and feel the difference in my skin when I use it in my homemade beauty care products.

    what do you think could be used instead of beeswax to make the eyeliner vegan?

    in my lip balms, I use soy wax in substitute for the beeswax, i usually have to at least double it though as the soy is much softer
