DIY All-Natural Vegan Mascara

Most mainstream mascaras contain not-so-sexy, toxic ingredients (e.g. 2-Propanol, Butylated Hydroxyanisole, Diethyl Phthalate, Aluminum, Butylated Hydroxytoluene, Propylene Glycol, Butyl Paraben, Isobutylparaben, Isopropyl Paraben, Methyl Paraben, Retinol Palmitate, Aluminum, Polyethylene Terephthalate, Ethyle Paraben…) Ew-ah!

Is your head spinning? How is it even legal for companies to sell products for your EYES with such nasties, right?

Here’s a super simple recipe for all-natural, vegan mascara that actually WORKS, and it’s especially great for those with sensitive eyeballs like mahself.

DIY All-Natural Vegan Mascara

Combine and mix all ingredients in a small bowl until completely smooth. Use an oral syringe to transfer your mascara into in clean, empty mascara tube. Tada, das ist alles!

For va-va-vommy lashes: Curl lashes with an eyelash curler, apply 1 to 2 coats of mascara in an upward motion from roots to tips. With a cotton ear swab, carefully pat your lashes with arrowroot powder or corn starch. Apply another coat of mascara.

    Where would one procure themselves an empty mascara tube quickly (can’t reuse old one, don’t want to have to go through an entire other bottle)

    I have a bag of activated charcoal. Do you know how many teaspoons 10 capsules measure?

    • Shana says:

      Kelly, I’m sure you have figured it out, but I was wondering the same thing! I clicked on the link and ten capsules is 2,600 mg. I looked up the conversion and it is equal to about a half of a teaspoon. Hope that helps!
