DIY Makeup Remover : How To

Makeup is fun and I love the confidence a perfect makeup gives me. Right makeup enhances the natural beauty and thus it is very important to know the right tricks and techniques. There is an immense pleasure in the lipstick bullets, in those pans of eye shadows, in the swirls of the blushes and the veins of the bronzers. They make my heart skip beats.makeover

But the fun of makeup is only complete when you remove every trace of it before going to bed. Yes, removing makeup is very crucial. Never go to bed with your makeup on, no matter how much tired are you. Even if you have only kohl on your eyes or just a dab of lip balm on your lips. There shouldn’t be any trace of makeup on you.

But it doesn’t mean you have to spend a bomb in buying makeup removers with labels. There are many gentle versions that you can make at home which are non-irritating, easy to make, highly effective and cheap.

My own DIY remover recipe

Things you will need-

  • Baby oil
  • Baby shampoo
  • Bottle for storage (can be glass dropper bottle or plastic bottle with flip top caps)


Mix baby oil and baby shampoo in equal ratio. Pour the mixture in a bottle. Place the lid on the jar and shake well to combine. Always shake well before use. I have been using this remover since years. It removes the most stubborn waterproof makeup in one to two swipes. No harmful chemicals, no alcohol, no disturbing smell, just soft and cleansed skin.

The Johnson’s baby oil gel works well too.

Jojoba and Vitamin E

 Jojoba Oil Review

Things you will need-

  • 50 ml Jojoba oil
  • 1 or 2 capsule of Vitamin E
  • Bottle for storage (can be glass dropper bottle or plastic bottle with flip top caps)


Prick the vitamin E capsule/capsules with a needle and squeeze the contents of the capsule into a jar of 50ml of jojoba oil. Just keep the ratio in mind and you can play with the quantities. Now close the lid and shake well to combine.

When using, shake well and take out about half a tsp of this mixture. Gently massage it onto your face concentrating on the eye area. Massage for 30 seconds. It not only removes makeup like a charm but also moisturizes and Vitamin E takes care of your lashes. Gently wipe off the oil with a damp washcloth.

The magic remover


Things you will need-

  • Coconut Oil
  • Olive Oil
  • Aloe Vera Gel


Again a self made one. It is a super effective makeup remover without any irritant chemicals or alcohol. Mix the ingredients together in equal ratio. Dab the mixture all over your skin and eye area and wait a minute or two to let it work its magic. Lightly massage in round motion. Wet a cotton ball or a clean cloth and gently remove the oil from your skin. If you find your skin a little sticky and oily, use a soft dry cloth to remove the extra oil or follow up by cleansing your skin as usual.

Honey and baking soda

face pack
Right now you are thinking if this method really helps you in removing those long staying liners. Right? Even I used to think like you before I tried this recipe. And trust me, it works. Add drops of honey on pinch of baking soda and lightly massage in circular motions. Keep it for 1-2 minutes and wipe off with a cloth dipped in lukewarm water. Result is unbelievable.

Vaseline and just Vaseline

moisturing cream

It is an awesome makeup remover, especially for eye makeup. Dab some Vaseline on eyes. Wait for some time, then take a fresh cloth dipped on lukewarm water and gently wipe it across eyes to pick up mascara. Go over the eye area with a clean pad until it’s makeup-free. For face you can mix Vaseline with a few drops of oil and then use it to remove makeup.

Try these effective ways and your skin will thank you for removing all of your makeup gently, safely, and naturally and that too without spending fortunes..!!
