Household Makeup Removers

Yesterday evening. Concealer caked under my eyes. Mascara loaded on my eyelashes. Toss in some thick black eyeliner, glamorous eyeshadow, and loose powder. Rummaging through my product stash for something to remove the makeup. Wait. I own none of that stuff. Time to improvise:

Olive oil as a makeup remover.
Regular cleanser + brown sugar for a scrub.
Witch hazel as a toner.

It worked out well!

If you decide to try these household options, be careful in the region around your eyes.

OTHER OPTIONS:
*makeup remover - jojoba oil, safflower oil, castor oil
*scrub - white sugar + cleanser
*toner - lemon juice or rubbing alcohol (may be drying though)

  1. Diluted apple cider vinegar (1 part avc to 4 parts of water) makes an awesome toner as well.
