This recipe for mascara comes from the ebook Eat My Makeup
To make your own mascara, you need a few ingredients which you can get from your local health food store (even the charcoal).
1 tsp coconut oil
1 1/2 tsp beeswax
1 tsp shea butter
4 tsp of aloe vera gel
1-2 capsules of activated charcoal
How to make it:
Put the coconut oil, beeswax shea and aloe vera in a small pot and heat very slowly over a very low heat. Stir continuously until all the ingredients have melted. Now take your pot off the stove and add the charcoal. Stir it really well. Use a funnel to pour the liquid into an old mascara tube. Before you reuse the old mascara tube, make sure you have sterilized it by leaving it in hot water.
If you don’t have a funnel, leave the mascara to cool a little, then pour it into a plastic bag. Cut a small hole in the plastic bag and squeeze the liquid into the mascara tube.
This is a great way to enjoy your makeup without the chemicals!
