DIY All Natural Mascara Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp. shea butter
  • 1 ½ tsp. beeswax
  • 4 tsp. aloe vera gel
  • ½ tsp. activated charcoal
  • 3-4 drops Vitamin E

Directions:

  1. Put a 4 ounce measuring cup in a pan of simmering hot water.
  2. Place the first 4 ingredients in the measuring cup and heat until completely melted.
  3. Remove the measuring cup from the heat and add the activated charcoal.
  4. Stir well, then use a pipette to funnel your mascara into your container. I used an old mascara container, cleaning it out thoroughly first (including the wand).  Empty mascara containers can also be purchased online.
  5. Let it harden, then use.

Note:  This recipe made enough mascara to fill three tubes.  

Good news:  This mascara will thicken your lashes, and the beeswax helps prevent raccoon eyes.  I was very pleased with the results.  This recipe is a combination of 2 different recipes that I tried.  

Shelf life: Because this mascara includes no preservatives, it will only last 3-4 months. Dispose of it when it starts to smell bad.  As a rule, you should never keep any mascara past 6 months.  There are too many opportunities for it to introduce germs into your eyes.  Never a good thing.
