Homemade Eye Makeup Remover Recipes

Do you love putting on eye makeup but have a hard time removing it? Don’t like to buy expensive eye makeup remover? Worry no more because here are 5 DIY eye makeup remover recipes you can do all by yourself.

1.  Extra Virgin Coconut oil Eye Makeup Remover Recipe

How to make homemade eye makeup remover

To start off, we have an olive oil eye makeup remover. Olive oil is a pretty common ingredient in these homemade eye makeup remover recipes because it quickly breaks down the makeup on your face.

The other ingredients in this recipe help break down the makeup further and also relax and nourish your skin.

You will need: 

  • ½ cup of extra virgin coconut oil
  • vitamin E capsules (or oil)
  • lavender essential oil
  • small containers for mixing and storage


  1. Start by melting the coconut oil in the microwave. (It should only take 15 seconds.)
  2. Pour the liquid into your container(s).
  3. Use a small pin to poke holes in 6 vitamin E capsules. Add the contents of the capsules into a mason jar with the coconut oil.
  4. Add 6-7 drops of lavender essential oil.

When the mixture has returned to room temperature, it creates an oil that can be lightly massaged onto your eyelids and wiped clean. You can also leave on a small amount overnight to moisturize the delicate skin around your eyes.

You will need: 

  • Scant 2 oz. jojoba oil (or use more if you have a bigger jar)
  • 1 capsule of non-GMO vitamin E (Technically, this is optional but extremely recommended)
  • Optional: 3 drops of soothing essential oil (I use carrot seed essential oil)
  • Dark glass dropper bottle for storage, such as this one
