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.
