Removing waterproof eye makeup can be really difficult! Why pay for expensive eye makeup removers when you can do the job at a tiny fraction of the cost?
Use no more tears baby shampoo and a Q-tip! Pour a tiny bit into a clean hand and roll a wet Q-tip in a tiny bit of the shampoo. Gently move under and over the eyelashes. Follow up with a clean wet cloth and rinse with lukewarm water.
I do not recommend this as a whole face wash, but it does make an excellent eye makeup remover.

I was tired of trying to find an eye makeup remover that was affordable, didn't have a lot of chemicals, and didn't burn my eyes.
I learned that a simple way to remove eye makeup was as easy as using three items I already had. Olive oil, witch hazel, a plastic container and I was good to go!
This recipe makes one cup of eye makeup remover. The plastic tube container in the photo holds about 1/2 cup. Ratio of oil to witch hazel can be adjusted, depending on desired amount of moisturizing.
Total Time: It only takes about 10 minutes to complete.
Yield: 1 cup of eye makeup remover
