Eye Liner Recipe
This simple recipe makes a brush-on black eye liner that stays on well and can be adapted to your shade preferences.
2 Parts Arrowroot Powder
1 Part Black Iron Oxide
1 Part Magnesium Stearate
Lipids and Waxes:
8 Parts Jojoba
1 Part Beeswax
1 Part Carnauba Wax
1 Part Stearic Acid
Below are the specific quantities to make enough product to fit into a 1/2 ounce plastic jar:
1 tsp. Arrowroot Powder
1/2 tsp. Black Iron Oxide
1/2 tsp. Magnesium Stearate
Lipids and Waxes:
4 tsp. Jojoba
1/2 tsp. Beeswax
1/2 tsp. Carnauba Wax
1/2 tsp. Stearic Acid
Heat water to boiling in the bottom pot of a double boiler.
Place the Jojoba, Beeswax, Carnauba Wax and Stearic Acid into the the top insert of the double boiler, and allow to melt. Stir frequently.
While the lipid/wax mixture is heating, combine the powdered ingredients in a separate bowl and have them waiting.
When the lipid/wax mixture is thoroughly melted, quickly pour it into a glass measuring cup or other heatproof glass container.
Quickly add the powdered ingredients and stir well.
Immediately spoon the eyeliner into a jar.
Allow to thoroughly cool.
Notes: Measurements are taken in level not heaping teaspoons. You will need a very narrow and thin brush for this eye liner. You may wish to adjust the amount of oil or wax in this recipe to fine-tune the level of coverage that you get with your brush and application style. For a slightly thinner liner that spreads on easier, add a few extra drops of vegetable oil. For a firmer eye liner, use less oil or try adding a little more beeswax.
Packaging Suggestions: Package in a 1/2 ounce plastic clear or opaque jar.
