Theoretically, could I use EVOO and eucalyptus oil as my combo. I usually use jojoba, grapeseed oil, and castor but I'm all out.

What about breaking open a fish oil capsule and applying it either with this combo or alone?
 
 
 
 
 
 
Before putting fish oils on your face it's worth considering this:
Fish oils are rich in omegas, very unsaturated oils. Unsaturated - as the word suggests - means unstable. Their molecules need to 'nick' atoms from other molecules in order to become stable. In doing so they generate free radicals. Our bodies need a certain amount of unsaturated fat (cellular membranes - including those in our skin - are made of a balanced combination of saturated and unsaturated fats which both play a their role). But the emphasis put on unsaturated fats these days is far from balanced. More details in this blog post:
