How to Make Your Own Mascara

How to Make Your Own Mascara

Unlike most of the beauty recipes on Vivre Le Rêve, DIY mascara uses some unusual ingredients that aren’t budget friendly. I absolutely love the results of this recipe, so I still make it often, but if you don’t already have these ingredients at home, buying an organic mascara might be a better option.

Natural Mascara Ingredients

  • 1/4 tsp Black mineral powder (One jar of mineral powder will make 15+ batches of mascara.)
  • 1/4 tsp Bentonite Clay (Any cosmetic clay should work.)
  • 1/8 tsp (about 4 drops) Vegetable Glycerin
  • 1/4 tsp (plus more if needed) Aloe Vera
  • 5 drops Lavender Essential Oil

Also needed:

  • A clean mascara container.
  • A medicine dropper
  • A small spatula.

What to Do:

  1. Mix all ingredients in a very small bowl until completely smooth.
  2. Add more aloe vera gel as needed to get a smooth consistency.
  3. Put into the medicine dropper with a spatula and slowly squirt into the mascara container
  4. Use as you would regular mascara.
