Easy DIY Homemade Eye Makeup Remover Recipe
Step 1: Collect the Ingredients
The first step to finally being able to remove all of your makeup from your eyes in a cost effective way is to get all of the ingredients for the recipe. First, you’re going to want witch hazel which is a great smelling ingredient that not only helps to reduce inflammation, but is also known for its antibacterial properties. In fact, it is commonly recommended to people who are suffering from acne problems. You will need 2 tablespoons of witch hazel for the recipe.
The next ingredient that you’ll need is an oil of your choice, whether it’s jojoba oil, almond oil, etc. The oil is what will give the eye makeup remover the slick texture that will cling onto all of the makeup particles and easily remove them from your skin without pulling and tugging. The oils are also essential for giving your skin the moisture it will need after applying the witch hazel. This recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of your chosen oil.
Finally, you will need filtered water as it helps to create the right texture for the remover so you aren’t caking oil and witch hazel onto your eyes. You will need 2 tablespoons of filtered water.
Step 2: Combine the Ingredients and Choose a Container
The next step is to make sure that you thoroughly combine the ingredients in the DIY homemade eye makeup remover recipe so they are easy to use and have the right texture that you need. I would recommend that you use a whisk to ensure that everything is combined properly. In the event that you want to formula to be thicker, consider adding more of your chosen oil. Or if you want it to be more of a liquid, add equal parts witch hazel and water. After all of the ingredients have been combined choose a container to keep it in for future use.
Step 3: Remove the Makeup
The most exciting part of the DIY homemade eye makeup remover process is to see how well it works with removing your makeup. This formula is perfect for getting rid of both waterproof and non-waterproof formulas, regardless of how long you’ve been wearing them. In fact, you can even use a small cotton swab to correct any makeup mistakes that you have made without having to remove the entire look and start from scratch.
I like to use a soft cotton ball and apply the DIY home eye makeup remover to my eyes, slowly wiping the makeup away. After the first swipe I take a brand new clean cotton ball and use a gentle circular motion to remove any excess color that wasn’t picked up the first time. Ensure that you keep your eyes closed during this process.
After the makeup has been removed, splash your face with warm water and dab it dry with a clean towel.
Not only is this DIY homemade eye makeup remover far less expensive than option for store brands, but also it is also far healthier for your skin. Instead of relying on chemical components to help break down the formula of makeup and give you fresh skin, you can use natural ingredients that offer the same effects but with more benefits.
