One of the most powerful tools a girl can have is her eyes. Eyes are the only organ of a human being who can speak a message without a voice. That’s the reason, most girls make their eyes attractive and prominent during makeup. Not only to relay some messages but to make themselves alluring. For this purpose, you can use either homemade eyeliner or the commercial one.

Nowadays, a lot of eyeliner styles are introduced by makeup artists which gives smaller eyes a bigger effect and droopy eyes an uplifting effect, etc.

In order to give a fresh look to our tired-looking eyes, most of us daily use eyeliners. But commercial eyeliners contain a huge number of chemicals which make sensitive eyes sometimes watery etc.

It has been suggested that eye makeup could interact with human meibum causing a decrease in the stability of the tear film. Certainly, it could be beneficial to design such eye makeup products that do not interact with meibum.

In other words, we need natural, non-toxic, and some eye-friendly ingredients for our homemade eyeliner. That gives us the same result as that of commercial eyeliners and should be pocket friendly as well.

DIY Non-Toxic Eye Makeup

Eye makeup should use non-toxic ingredients that are safely used for the eyes. In commercial eyeliners, this is not the case.

But in our homemade eyeliners, we are 100% aware of all the natural ingredients. That’s why they are considered safe and beneficial for our eye skin.
