To make homemade eyeliner, you will need coconut oil, aloe vera gel, and one or two activated charcoal capsules for black liner, or one-half of a teaspoon of cocoa powder for brown liner. All ingredients must be thoroughly mixed together and then stored in an air-tight container.
- Gather the ingredients
The ingredients needed to make do-it-yourself eyeliner at home are two teaspoons of coconut oil, four teaspoons of aloe vera gel, and one or two capsules of activated charcoal powder for black eyeliner, or one-half of a teaspoon of cocoa powder for brown eyeliner.
- Mix your ingredients
Thoroughly mix all the ingredients for the desired color of eyeliner until the mix liquefies; it should be paint-like in consistency. The mixture can be stored in any airtight container, such as a sanitized jar or pot, and should be kept in a cool and dark place. If blacker liner is desired, more activated charcoal can be added to the mixture. If thicker liner is desired, less coconut oil should be added.
- Apply the eyeliner
Use a eyeliner brush to apply the eyeliner along the top and bottom eyelash lines. It is important to clean and sanitize the brush after each use so you don't introduce bacteria to the mixture.
