Tutorial Tuesday | DIY Natural Makeup Remover

As you all know by now that I’m a bit of a sucker when it comes to DIY’s. I absolutely love nothing more than a good natural beauty DIY, or even ones for the home. If I can make something that I would usually buy from the shop with things I already have in the cupboards then happy days! You’ll be surprised at what you can rustle up that is natural, good for you, a lot greener and much cheaper than the shops.


Today I’m sharing a couple of really easy makeup remover recipes with you because not everyone has the same skin type as me. You’ll probably have most of the ingredients in your cupboards already. For these recipes make sure that the makeup remover is stored in the fridge and you use it withing 4-5 days. It’ll be lovely and cool to use, especially on warm days.

For Oily Skin

4 Tablespoons of Witch Hazel (No Alcohol)

2 Tablespoons of Jojoba Oil and/or 2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil

You can use both oils together in this recipe if you like. I much prefer Jojoba oil as it works better for me.

Just mix everything together in the jar and you’re good to go.


For Normal/Dry Skin

1.5 Tablespoons of Coconut Oil (preferably fractionated, liquid form)

1 Tablespoon Witch Hazel

1.5 Tablespoons of Distilled Water (Boiled, then cooled)

Just pop everything into the jar, give it a good mix and you’re all ready to go.

I love really easy to make DIY’s and this one will take you about 2 minutes. When you’re ready to use your makeup remover grab your wash cloth or some organic cotton pads, pop it on and give your face a good wiping.  You’ll see how quickly you makeup just melts away including waterproof mascara.


Because both recipes have Witch Hazel in them they’re great for fighting breakouts and spots. Witch Hazel is great for helping to stop bacteria growth so these makeup removers will be great for teenage girls as well. I really hope you like my post and give these recipes a try.


Have you tried any of these recipes?? What do you think??
