How To Make Mascara At Home

The Natural Mascara recipe is much simpler than you’d like to think. It is very organic, comes with no side effects, and will definitely add more beauty and appeal to your eyes. Also, it creates a beautiful texture when you apply it. You are going to love this when it’s done.

Ingredients:

  • Black mineral powder
  • Bentonite clay – to prevent the mascara from hardening and make it darker in colour
  • Aloe Vera – to create smoothness and a beautiful texture
  • Lavender essential oil – in order to add some wonderful fragrance to the mascara and to make your lashes grow
  • A simple mascara container. You could use an old lip gloss or lip balm container if you like
  • A tiny spatula
  • Simple medicine dropper

Steps:

  1. Get hold of all the ingredients and mix them together. Use a bowl for this. Blend until the mixture has become completely smooth.
  2. Now add some more Aloe Vera gel if you would like to create that consistency.
  3. Next you will have to scoop into the medicine dropper with the help of a spatula and gently squirt into the mascara container.
  4. You could try another method as well. Just add all the ingredients inside the tube and use a brush to mix the mascara. This might take some time. So be patient enough.
  5. You can use just like you would use a regular mascara.
  6. If you would like to remove it, get hold of a wash cloth and dip it in warm water or olive oil. This will act as a natural makeup eye remover.

Tip: If you’d like to thicken and increase the length of your lashes, dust them with arrowroot powder. This would work best with an eyelash curler.
