Lash Week: DIY Coconut Oil Makeup Remover
I’m on a quest for simplified routines, this time of year especially. Which is probably why I’m head-over-heels obsessed with this (too easy to call it a DYI) coconut-oil makeup remover. It’s gentle yet effective and so ridiculously easy to do. Here’s how!
Step 1: Acquire some organic coconut oil. Since I use my jar most often for cooking and baking, I decanted some melted oil into a pretty vintage Avon jar I bought at a thrift store. It looks a lot nicer in my bathroom than a big ol’ jar, yes?
Step 2: Grab a cotton pad and give it quick run-through under warm running water. You don’t want it soaked, just a bit dampened.
Step 3: Swipe the cotton pad over the coconut oil, digging in a little if you need, so it picks up ½-1 teaspoon’s worth of oil. I usually work it into the pad a bit with my fingers so it’s distributed evenly.
Step 4: Remove your eye makeup just as you would with a store-bought remover and cotton pad. Repeat steps 1 through 4 on the other eye.
Step 5: Once you’ve finished, splash your face with warm water and pat dry.
