For the past few months I have been using coconut oil to removed my heavy eye makeup and it has done wonders for me. I could never find a makeup remover that would remove the stubborn waterproof mascara and liquid liner for me, so after seeing some posts on pinterest with the oil method, I decided I would give it a go.

Tip: Make sure you are using virgin coconut oil. Mine is also organic but you just want to make sure it is in it's purest form.
So, I start by getting a pea sized amount of the oil on my fingertips and I start massaging it onto my eye lids.
To tackle the mascara mess, I use the oil on my fingertips and use a "rolling" method down my eyelashes. if you are gentle enough, you shouldn't have eyelashes coming out either.
After that, I proceed with my cleansing routine and voila!
