Happy Presidents' Day to all my U.S. readers (and a Happy Monday to those who aren't!) We are all still in pjs, enjoying a lazy snowy day in Colorado. And in an effort to kick-off a more semi-regular appearance of my Make-It-Monday series, I thought I'd share an easy one today!
Since I'm a die-hard waterproof mascara fan, I go through a lot of eye makeup remover...and it's not cheap! I'd much rather spend my money on the actual mascara than the stuff to take it off, so I experimented with a few recipes until I found one that works (and it's really inexpensive to make!) Another bonus? It's not filled with all the unpronounceable chemicals and crap that the drugstore remover has. Here's all you need:
Then just mix equal parts of witch hazel and oil. For an even more economical version, you can use olive oil or coconut oil in place of the Body Shop oil. Shake before using, as the oil will separate a bit when it sits. I apply with cotton pads and it works wonderfully without drying out your eye area.
So do you have any home recipes for beauty products? I'd love to hear them!
