Long, luscious eyelashes are one of those things desired by many women all over the world. They can be achieved with different types of mascaras due to their ability to darken, lengthen, curl, color and thicken the eyelashes, typically applied with a brush or rod. However, most mascara products on the market today contain numerous chemicals, which may be super toxic.
But there’s good news. We have the recipe for making super easy natural and non-toxic mascara everyone should have in their beauty purse.
TOTAL TIME NEEDED: 10 minutes
- 1 tsp. coconut oil
- 1 tsp. aloe vera gel
- 1/2—1 tsp. grated beeswax
- ⅛ tsp. castor oil
- ¼ tsp. black mineral powder
- ⅛ tsp. bentonite clay
- 4–5 drops lavender essential oil
- Clean mascara container
- Put the coconut oil and grated beeswax on low heat and stir until they’re completely melted. The beeswax has waterproof attributes and makes the right thickness. The coconut oil has nourishing properties and provides a smooth texture.
- Add the castor oil and the aloe vera gel and stir. Castor oil is great for eyelash growth and aloe vera is a natural astringent that helps keep the mixture from getting too oily.
- Add the black mineral powder (a combination of micronized iron oxides, talc, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide), and blend well.
- Add the bentonite clay and the lavender essential oil. Remove from heat and blend. The clay helps the mascara dry and harden. The lavender oil provides a nice scent while helping the eyelashes grow.
- Pour the mixture into the tube. Slowly and gently, push the mixture into the tube until it’s all inside.
Use as a regular mascara. To remove, use a washcloth with warm water or olive or coconut oil as a natural eye makeup remover. And like any other mascara, it should be thrown if it starts to smell odd.
