I found this blog today from thankyourbody.com and thought I'd pass it along since I'm a health and frugality freak! lol
This looks so easy and I can't wait to try it for myself. And since I have to buy all the supplies shown below, I'm going to make a large batch and give them to all my cousins (both girls and guys) as All-Natural Christmas stocking-stuffers. I'll be adding crafty text to the bottle and homemade designer tags to give them a boutique look!
From Robin:My first attempt at homemade mascara wasn’t very impressive. It worked, but it the results were so subtle that it didn’t seem worth the time. I played around with the mixture, added in some beeswax, and am much happier with what I now have. I can’t call it “water proof,” but I haven’t had any unfortunate raccoon eyes… even after a sweaty dance class.
This homemade mascara does a great job darkening, separating, and conditioning the lashes. And my eyes feel so much better using it! I probably won’t be asked to model for Maybelline anytime soon, but I think it does the job nicely. :)
The recipe is really easy. The hardest part is getting it into the blasted tube. If you have a long syringe that would probably be best. But I think I’ve come up with a handy little way to get your homemade mascara where it belongs.
What you’ll need:
*Activated charcoal can be found in most health food stores or online. This is not the same stuff you use to get your grill going, okay?
