Updated on May 12, 2011

Make a smart decision

Ok so it is nine or 10 pm and you begin to get ready to take-off your make-up and as you take out your usual make-up remover the one that you baught from your favorite store of course! you start to notice something unusually different in the make-up remover well as you look inside guess what? it finished so now what do you do? do you go to the store and waste your money buying another make-up remover or do you decide to make the right choice and make your own at home if I were you I would choose the second option because it can be something that you can learn something new and it can be a smart thing to do in the end.


How a make-up remover is made

Making your own make-up remover is easier to make than it sounds you just have to follow the directions well so it can come out good.

1) First up you have to combine the canola oil with one tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil.

2) Apply a small amount of oil in a cotton ball or a tissue that you might have at home.

3) With the tissue or cotton ball that you might be using swipe off any make-up that you might have in your eyes and eyelashes top and bottom.

4) Lastly, rinse with cold water


Mission accomplished

Now that I already gaved you the steps on how to do your own make-up remover it is time for you to try it on your own and see how it works out for you and if you liked it then you wont have to ever have to worry about buying those expensive make-up removers that exist today. Good Luck!

      It can be either both as long as it's olive oil.

      Does it have to be the "super virgin olive oil" or can it be just a normal olive oil?

      This seems like a good way to remove make-up and inexpensive too. I will certainly try this. Thank you.
