WipingMaking your own eye makeup remover is cheap and it works great!

Results may vary on some brands of waterproof mascara.

For gentle cleansing, choose organic and scent-free products where possible.

Here are a few recipes I’ve collected as well as a list of various household items to try.

Directions For Each:

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

Shake first and apply with a tissue, cotton pad or ball.

Watch: If any method irritates eyes or the surrounding skin, please discontinue use.

ListHousehold Oils:

  • Olive
  • Baby or Mineral
  • Jojoba
  • Almond
  • Grapeseed
  • Vaseline or Petroleum Jelly
  • Unscented Baby Wipes


ChartDirections For Each:

Fill a small bowl with chosen recipe.

Swoosh the brush around in the mixture, rinse with water to get rid of all traces of soap.

Maintenance Tips:
(First Published: November 5, 2006 – Moved here for better organization)

  • Every month they should be washed thoroughly.
  • Don’t use the same one for both light and dark shades–use one for each. Helps prevent streaks when applying light highlight shades.
  • Try using a daily skin cleanser when washing the brushes. This helps avoid allergic reactions as the professional products can be harsh.
  • Once done, reshape immediately and allow to dry. Make sure they are thoroughly dry before using again.
  • When they start shedding and the bristles frizz, replace with new ones.
