HOMEMADE NATURAL MASCARA

Loading...

Super excited to share this recipe with you today! They made your lashes look darker, but didn’t really make the lashes look any thicker. So, that’s what I tried to do. Make an all-natural mascara that adds a bit of fullness to your lashes!

HOMEMADE NATURAL MASCARA 

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp shea butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp bees wax
  • 4 tsp of aloe vera gel
  • 1-2 capsules of activated charcoal (I found this at my local Vitamin World)

Directions:

  • In a small saucepan or mini sauce crockpot, place first four ingredients and heat until completely melted.
  • Mix in activated charcoal and remove from the heat.
  • Place mixture in a plastic bag, allow to cool a bit, and move contents to one corner of the bag.
  • Cut a small hole at the corner, insert into empty sterilized mascara tube like this one, and gently squeeze mascara into tube. It will be much easier if you have a second pair of hands to help.

Note: because this mascara is all-natural and contains no preservatives, it lasts 3-4 months. Dispose of after that, or if it starts to smell funky. You could probably put a few drops of vitamin E oil in and put a little less coconut oil in to help preserve it.

HOW DOES IT WEAR?

I love this mascara. It keeps my lashes soft and doesn’t flake off. It stays on pretty well, but after a long day at work, when I come home I may need to touch it up if I’m going to go somewhere. I only wish it was waterproof.Lets just say there was a lot of tears. The mascara smudged a little, and I just had to wipe it off with my finger. No big deal at all!

 

There you have it. A natural and easy recipe for mascara. Remember, makeup is a tricky thing… What works for me may not work for you, and you may have to adjust the recipe slightly. Because it is all-natural and not chock-full of unnatural chemicals, you shouldn’t compare it to the commercial stuff. It wears differently and may take some getting used to! With that being said, I hope ya’ll love it!!
