How to Mix?
For your convenient opt for these empty mascara tubes that are just perfect for this purpose. Instead of using old empty commercial mascara bottle, I prefer those because they are clean, really cute and very easy to use. Each of them has a small piece that plugs in on the top once you fill it up with the serum. My advice: don’t fill up till the top. The serum might overflow when you try to put the plug.
How to apply?
Best time to apply this natural eyelash growth serum at night before bed. This way it will allow more time to for the serum to work on your skin and eyelashes. Before you start, clean your face and make-up. Using the empty mascara wand apply gently on your lash line. Be careful and avoid getting into your eyes, because may cause irritation. Wash it off in the morning, and your lashes will look healthy and moisturized!
