DIY Eye Makeup Remover

DIY Makeup Remover

As some of you may know, I have the pleasure of writing a post every now and again for the e-magazine Scratch Mommy. Here is a post I recently wrote over there for a DIY Makeup Remover. Enjoy! 

Everyone has a guilty pleasure.

Some of the smartest people in my life watch some of the most ridiculous TV shows, some of the healthiest people I know have a soft spot for the occasional Krispy Kreme donut, and some of the most naturally minded people, like myself, love wearing eye makeup.

So, let me break it down for you all and come clean. My shampoo is entirely natural, I use the oil cleansing method to clean my face, I make my own body wash, and I use coconut oil as shaving cream. I haven’t owned a bottle of hairspray, gel, or mousse in well over a year and when I am in need of lotion I, again, reach for the coconut oil. My beauty routine could easily be described as minimalistic if it weren’t for my makeup drawer.

Even my makeup drawer has its limits though. Outside of some concealer and some blush, I am not a big fan of using makeup all over my skin. I am simply a sucker for eye makeup.

DIY Eye Makeup RemoverMy eyes have been my primary defining physical characteristic my entire life. As a child, everyone I met would immediately comment on my “big beautiful eyes.” For most of my young life I thought that was an incredibly strange compliment to pay someone. I didn’t really understand what they meant by “big” and it kind of sounded like everyone was telling me I had bug eyes or something! That was until I started to see some examples of women in the media who are described, affectionately, as having “big” eyes. Now, I understand what people are referring to and I embrace it. In fact, I genuinely think it is fun to accentuate my trademark facial feature, in spite of the fact that, I am sure whatever is in the eye makeup I use should probably not be put anywhere near my eyes.
