Get your wings ready! Today I made homemade eyeliner! This was, yet, another unbelievable easy product to make. It goes on incredibly smooth and is a consistent black opaque color. Oh, and it moisturizes your eyelids while you wear it.
There are tons of different variations you can make with this recipe.
For different colors add:
Blue- blueberry powder
Brown- Cocoa powder
Red- Strawberry Powder
Glittery Gold- Gold Mica Powder
The list goes on and on!
Today I chose to make black eyeliner because I wanted to start out with a more basic color that I would use in my everyday makeup routine!
Grab your ingredients!
All you need today is:
Measure out your ingredients! I used 2 charcoal capsules, but add as many charcoal capsules as you want until your reach your desired consistency and color!
It might be a little bubbly because of the activated charcoal, but that will subside after you refrigerate it for an hour!
Take it out of the fridge and voila! You’ve got your very own homemade eyeliner!
You may have to let it thaw a little bit before use to allow it to achieve that creamy and smooth consistency!

- Has been shown to repair skin damage and protect against inflammation.
- Potentially prevent aging by protecting against enzymes that damage skin proteins
- Charcoal can potentially bring impurities out of your pores by London dispersion forces. Basically, this means that the dirt becomes attached to the charcoal through dispersion forces. When the charcoal is washed off, the dirt goes with it! Our eyelids are getting a cleaning while being moisturized at the same time!
