Homemade Non-Toxic Eye Liner

By The Coconut Mama


As an “all natural” mama I don’t tend to wear makeup on a daily basis. More like, weekly or even monthly. I have sensitive eyes that tend to get irritated easily by mascara and eye liner. I’ve tried a few natural brands of makeup that I liked a lot, but still found that my eyes were too sensitive for them.

Then I found this amazing tutorial on how to make homemade mascara from Robin at Thank Your Body! She is a genius I tell ya! Her mascara is made with coconut oil, aloe vera gel, bees-wax, and charcoal. All natural ingredients that, so far, have not irritated my eyes! Yay!

Robin has a cool new e-book called, Toxic Free: 70 Recipes for a Toxic Free Home. This e-book is filled with cool recipes for making your own laundry detergent, all-purpose cleaner and even homemade cosmetics!

Robin was kind enough to let me share her recipe for homemade eye liner from her e-book. This eye liner is easy to make, just make sure to gently melt the coconut oil before mixing it with the other ingredients. You can order the activated charcoal online if you can’t find it at your local health food store.

Homemade Eye Liner



1. Thoroughly mix all ingredients.

2. Store in an airtight container.

Note: Be sure to store this in a dark and cool place. Use a clean brush to ensure you don’t
introduce any bacteria to the mixture.
