DIY Makeup Remover: Bye, Bye Raccoon Eyes

Waterproof mascara is a must in any gal's makeup bag. I come from the Tammy Faye school of thought where the bigger the lashes, the better. Unfortunately, removing makeup can be harder than plugging the BP oil pipe.

Instead of buying chem-filled conventional makeup remover, whip some up in your own home with ingredients lying around.


Eye Makeup Remover from TipNut

  • 1/8 cup grapeseed oil
  • 1 tablespoon castor oil

Or try these materials ...

  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon jojoba oil

Toss all ingredients in a bottle or small jar and shake or mix well.

Shake before each use and apply with a tissue, cotton pad, or ball.
