DIY Eye Makeup Remover!

Looking for an inexpensive alternative for eye makeup remover? Use EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL! Or EVOO in the language of Rachael Ray :) 

Using an oil based makeup remover can really help take off that stubborn waterproof and water-resistant eye makeup. A little side note: although olive oil is a GREAT moisturizer for the skin, if you have acne prone skin like I do, I advise you to only use this on your eyes. 

I first got my EVOO out of the kitchen. I have found that organic, cold-pressed oil is best. 

Next I found a small container. I used a clean, emptied 3 fl oz. bath and body works shower gel bottle. 

Then, just pour 1 part oil and 1 part water into the container. 

The water and oil separate, so make sure you shake it well each time before you use it. 

Shake up the oil/water mixture WELL.
Pour a small amount onto a cotton pad or cotton ball. 
Place the cotton pad/ball onto your eye and GENTLY rub off your eye makeup.
Should end up with something like this...
Simple! Right?

Give it a try! Let me know how it works for you :)
