Make Your Own Chemical-Free Mascara
In 1913 Maybelline's first cosmetic mascara was advertised--consisting of just petroleum jelly and kohl. And judging by the looks of it, this is something we can all make at home. Does that 1913 brush look like a toothbrush? With a little help from Youtube makeup personality, Sofia, from her SofiaStyled channel, we can all learn how to DIY this thang!

Watch this awesome tutorial by Sofia to make this Maybelline-inspired DIY mascara.
Directions
1. Start with 2 Tablespoons of slivered almonds to a pan and burn them carefully.
2. Crush the burnt almonds. You can use a mortar & pestle or a coffee grinder.
3. Add 1/2 teaspoon of kitty litter.
4. Add 1/2 teaspoon of petroleum jelly.
5. Stir thoroughly. This is the time to play with consistency*.
6. Store in a clean and sterilized container. Old mascara tubes are not recommended.
* Consistency is all personal preference. If you are looking for volume in your lashes, then do not crush almonds to a complete powder. If you want something definition, crush almonds to a fine powder.

Oh you should totally try it @rajunkhajun I'm only nervous about burning the almonds. Might just see if my mom would do that part for me. She is so much better in the kitchen than I ever will be. <3

Too much work to actually do in the kitchen, but I am really impressed that this can be achieved with a few household ingredients. I'll stick to my L'Oreal.
