Olive Oil Eye Makeup Remover

I always thought that this was a joke, a stupid thing that only strange people did. But I could not be more wrong.

Not only have I discovered that some stylish celebrities, beautiful bloggers and popular Youtubers do this. But I have discovered that it actually works. If you haven't tried it yet, then have a go, there's no harm in it!

So, if you are still wondering what I am talking about that is so fantastic, you will be pleased to hear that its an idea for saving money....on eye make-up remover.

All you need to remove all your eye makeup, and I mean ALL, is some cotton wool and some olive oil (it doesn't matter which kind, as long as its not infused with anything).

Simply, take a small amount of olive oil and put it on the cotton wool, so its half saturated. Then wipe over your lids, and magically your eye make up will disappear!

Don't be scared if your eyes get a bit blurry or your lids get heavy, its just because your lids are laid-down with oil. So, either pop yourself straight into bed and give in to the fact that your eyes want to shut, or use a lighter olive oil, or take excess oil off with some rose water.

The great things about taking makeup off this way:
- its cheap, seriously cheap
- its natural, no bad stuff in there, purity all the way!
- its conditioning and moisturising for your eyes, i swear in the long run your lashes will be longer, thicker and your eyes brighter
- you don't need to waste your time finding your HG eye makeup remover, when we all know its sitting on your kitchen shelf
