How to make your very own Natural Eye liner:) YAY!!

 Create your own Eyeliner!



Why pay for eyeliner when you can make your own homemade eyeliner using organic and natural ingredients? This recipe for homemade eyeliner is inexpensive and will last through anything - weather, sweat or tears.


2 Application Sticks or Cotton Swabs
2 Packets of Natural Fruit Extract Powder
1/4 Cup Distilled Water
2 tbsp. Cup Coconut Oil
1 tsp. Pure Cane Sugar

Picking the Shade

Pick a natural shade that you want to use for your homemade eyeliner. This is the purpose of the powdered fruit extract. If you like orange shades, use orange or tangerine flavored extract. If you like dark purple or blue, go for a blueberry powder. It's a matter of personal taste, any fruit extract powder will do. Make sure the label says "No Artificial Ingredients" you'll be fine.

Add the Colors

Pour the distilled water into a medium sized cereal bowl. Add the fruit extract powder, sugar, and coconut oil. Stir this mixture with a fork until well blended, leaving no chunks of coconut oil. The sugar will work as a base to resist evaporation, while dissolving the coconut oil and making the eyeliner last longer. Refridgerate for 2 hours until a thick layer has formed on top of the mixture.

Stir, Freeze, Stir!

Stir the mixture and put it in the freezer for 10-20 minutes. Repeat this process several times until the liquid has hardened throughout the eyeliner. The thick layer of film needs to become consistent throughout the eyeliner. This way, you'll be able to use the homemade eyeliner to the very bottom of the bowl instead of only getting 2-3 uses out of it before tossing it out! The color of the mixture now is what the eyeliner will turn out looking like in the end.

Create an Applicator

Now that you've got a hard solid that will easily rub off onto the smooth surface of your skin, it's time to create a method of application for the make-up. 25 cent capsule containers from toy machines work perfect. You can use whatever you like as long as it has a lid that snaps in place. Use the cotton swab or applicator stick as an eyeliner pencil and enjoy!
