Create A Natural Eyeliner

An astounding number of eyeliners litter the shelves of every grocery and drugstore. Many claim to be hypoallergenic, all-natural, or organic, making it difficult to discern which product is the best choice. While these store-bought varieties may seem reputable, inexpensive, and easy, many of them can end up taking a toll on your wallet, your time, and your health. If you choose the wrong eyeliner that isn’t appropriate for your skin or the condition of your eyes, the result can be irritation, inflammation, or infection that causes redness in and around the eyes, discharge, or even swelling. In order to avoid these undesirable and uncomfortable conditions, you can create your very own hypoallergenic eyeliner in the comfort of your own home using inexpensive, all-natural ingredients that support skin and eye health while highlighting the eyes in the same way as store-bought varieties.

Not only can you duplicate the aesthetic qualities of store-bought eyeliner, but you can also promote the health of your eyes and skin with the antibacterial, antiviral, and antimicrobial benefits of activated charcoal, as well as the moisturizing support of coconut oil. Reducing the risk of irritation, inflammation, and redness while also moisturizing the extremely sensitive skin around the eyes, this healthy, all-natural combination can be used as often as necessary.

To Create A Natural Eyeliner:

Ingredients:



• 1 teaspoon fine activated charcoal powder
• 1 tablespoon coconut oil
