When it comes to makeup, there’s one thing we can’t live without: eye makeup remover. But break down all of those foreign-looking ingredients on the back and we’re suddenly not as stoked to slather the store-bought version on our delicate eye area. So, we whipped up this easy DIY recipe for eye makeup remover with only three, inexpensive and gentle ingredients. Here’s how to make your own:
What you need:
Water, no-tears baby shampoo, olive oil or coconut oil, a small glass container.
What you do:
1. Pour a ½ tablespoon of baby shampoo into the clean glass container. Add ¼ teaspoon olive or coconut oil and mix together.
2. Pour in enough water to fill your container. You’ll notice the oil pools at the top of the water mixture.
3. Shake well. Lightly dab a cotton ball into the mixture and gently remove eye makeup. Shake well each time you use.
That’s it! This mixture is gentle on your skin and eyes, and takes off even the most stubborn mascara no problem. And of course, make sure you don’t use too much of the shampoo and oil—anything besides water can irritate your eyes when used in large quantities!
