Powdered Ingredients:

  • 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:

    Powdered Ingredients:

  • 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
  • Instructions:

  • 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.
